Gorgeous Shadow is a graceful, black greyhound lad approximately 5 years old. He is such a lovely dog – all the volunteers adore him.
Poor Shadow was on death row in the pound, when Dogwatch offered to help him. He was very thin and stressed and not putting weight on in the kennels.
He is crosseyed bless him, but that dosnt seem to affect his eyesight at all. Shadow travels well in the car and is very happy to play with toys and teddies, and get as much fuss as he can.
He doesn’t need another dog to live with but that would be nice. He does like company, so a home where people work from home or are semi retired/retired would be good.

His Best Points :

Gentle, comical with his toys and friendly



Foster Report :

Nice, gentle boy. He is good with people and dogs, sleeps all night, doesn’t pull on lead. There are 2 things that are work in progress and they are odd accidents with housetraining and not crying when one of us goes out.
Update –

4 February
Shadow is settling very nicely into a routine now and asks to go out to toilet, so we can say he is housetrained plus he is also now used to us coming and going and not fretting at all. We are very pleased with his progress in such a short time.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog

Before being adopted, dogs will have been vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance  FREE, to apply please ask us for the pamphlet, our charity reference number is 1400005179.

All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.

For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas

This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
