Greyhound Paddy is “as handsome as they come” and affectionate too, says Peter Fleming, manager of the area’s SSPCA rescue and rehoming centre.
But at four years old, after a stressful period in his life, he desperately needs the love and support of a real family – and could well fit into a home which already has a pet dog.
Peter Fleming said: “This lovely greyhound has a phenomenal nature and would let you cuddle him endlessly.
“Paddy would like to find a family who can be with him for the majority of the time as he can become very stressed when left on his own.
“He needs a family who will be patient and work on his issues by creating routine.
