Hi, my name is Pongo

I'm a 1-year-old Lurcher from Burford rehoming centre and I'm looking for my forever home. Please read my profile below to find out more.

Give Pongo a forever home

All our unwanted and abandoned pets want is a warm home with a loving family. If you’re looking for a new pet, why not consider rehoming from us?

About me

Pongo is a handsome Lurcher cross looking for a special new home.

He loves long countryside walks, especially when he gets the opportunity to say hello to new people and other dogs, Pongo is quite a socialite! At home he loves sunbathing and having a cuddle after a good play session and chomp on a tasty chew.

Pongo is looking for confident owners who have experience of handling a young, enthusiastic dog and who are interested in continuing the extensive training programme he has here at the centre. He has a history of struggling with life and will show this by jumping up and mouthing and other behaviours, because of this he is unable to live with children

Pongo may be able to live with another dog but cats would be a bit of a temptation!

Pongo has been patiently waiting for the right home and the centre team are keen to help him with the transition from rehoming centre to new home with visits and day trips as he will find this change challenging.

He’s a smart, playful, sweet, cheeky dude waiting for you to come and meet him.

Looked after
