Beyond Radio teams up with Animal Care on Rescue Pet of the Month

Sam Cragg from Beyond Radio with Paddy, our Rescue Pet of the Month

Beyond Radio has teamed up with a Lancaster animal rescue charity hoping to find new loving homes for our furry friends.

Our Rescue Pet of the Month feature is part of our Weekend Breakfast Show with Sam Cragg - working alongside Animal Care in Scotforth.

This month's Rescue Pet is Paddy, a three year old male retired racing greyhound.

"He had been used for racing for about six months but due to a small injury on his pad he was retired," said an Animal Care spokesperson.

"He has since had a small operation and is now fully recovered. He is a very happy, friendly boy who is always ready to go on adventures. He has quickly become a favourite with most of our dog walking volunteers and is always very excited to see them all.

"He has a high prey drive and can initially be quite strong on the lead but soon settles and after five minutes walks very well, He would not be suitable in a home with small animals due to his racing history.

"We don’t think Paddy has ever been around young children but is walked by volunteers with young children and has always been fine. We would advise children over 10 years who have lived with dogs before.

"Paddy has never lived with another dog before; we do mix with other lurchers, and he enjoys chasing them but he always has his muzzle on he can be protective over his toys and food so he would be best as the only dog in his new home.

"Paddy is a happy bouncy boy who loves tennis balls, squeaky balls, treats and cuddles."

If you can help find a new home for Paddy, contact Animal Care at Blea Tarn Road in Lancaster, by calling 01524 65495.

Last month we helped to find a new home for Ziggy, an English bulldog. Here he is in his new home with Ben Vandenbrink of The Ship at Caton.

Weekend Breakfast with Sam Cragg is at 7am every Saturday and Sunday on Beyond Radio.
