TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Lionel

As you all know Hall Green never gives up on a dog and we want to do our very best to help Lionel by finding him a foster carer or a forever family.

Lionel, who will be 6 years old in June, was adopted in August 2017 but returned to Hall Green in September 2019, after two years in a home. To start with he was happy in his new home but we think he found living with an active family with two small children and lots of visitors very, very stressful. His family wanted him to be happy so brought him back to the Trust to find him another home.

Lionel is the most affectionate, loving, and playful dog. He is adorable and is very loving and has the “greyhound lean” down to a t.

But he is losing weight, his coat can get quite dull, and he can get a bit grumpy in his kennel due to his distress. Though the staff and volunteers are doing their utmost to make him happy (he loves to play with squeaky toys and have a run in the paddock) it’s just not enough and he desperately needs a special someone to love him and build him up again both in terms of his health and his confidence.

Lionel would like an adult only household where the atmosphere is calm. We think that he would prefer to be an only dog, though he does get on with other dogs of all breeds. He enjoys it when our volunteers take him to the park and group walks and behaves impeccably. He has a special bond with one of our volunteers and her daughter and they have offered to support anyone who can help Lionel as they know him well.

We know that there is someone out there who can help Lionel before he starts to shut down in kennels and loses any more weight. If you are experienced dog owner and want to help, come and meet Lionel and the volunteers who are working with him. He’s waiting for you!
