About me

Benny is a delight to be around as he is a beautiful gentle giant. He loves nothing more than to have calm fusses and lean in to you for more. He has his mad moments where he will zoom round the enclosed fields here at the Centre and chase his soft toys, but he gets tired quite quickly and then loves to snooze the afternoons away.

He has never lived in a home before as he has come from a racing background, so will need understanding owners who will help him settle in to home life gradually and support him in situations he may percieve as scary. An owner who has experience of an ex racing Greyhound is a must as he has strong breed traits which he will need help with.


Looked after…

  • I've been vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and neutered as required
  • Examined by a vet and treated as required
  • Assessed by an experienced member of our team
  • Given an individual profile to help match me with my new owner
  • Rehomed with four weeks' free insurance from Petplan

Thanks for reading my story…

I'd like to say I have a lot to give to my new owner and that I think I deserve a warm and loving home. Can you help me out? I think Blue Cross would be much appreciative!
