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.

Help Benny to find a happy home with the gift of pet sponsorship!

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
