I'm Finbar, a rescue lurcher and I want to be adopted.
Finbar was rescued by Hector’s just over two years ago. He was part of a multi rescue operation for over forty Greyhounds living in a field in Ireland.
Finbar was only just twelve months old, he didn’t have racing tattoos in his ears and we had no history of his breeding. With some work in a Hector’s foster home Finbar responded well to socialisation and was rehomed to a lovely home where he settled and did very well.
Finbar sadly has just been returned to Hector’s, his past owners are very upset as Finbar was a much loved family pet. The reason for Finbar’s return is because a baby was born into his family. Contrary to what you think you are about to read, it is wrong ! Finbar took it upon himself to safeguard and love the new baby and defend the pram on walks with his life.
It is very interesting to note that his owners did a DNA test on Finbar as there was no history available for him, it came back with a report that he was 80% Greyhound and 20% Collie. The Collie part is probably why things went wrong with his home when the baby arrived.
Finbar has more energy than an average Greyhound (the 20% Collie), he can be reactive to other dogs which can be corrected (as long as you don’t have a baby😱).
Finbar is so deserving of a loving forever home. It’s not his fault he loves too deeply that he wants to protect everything he loves. Finbar obviously is used to living in a home, he is a loving, affectionate fun boy who desperately wants to please. But he occasionally gets things wrong because he was born and raised in a field with little human interaction and needs an owner that can continue to help him adjust.
Finbar can live with other dogs or as an only dog, he is not cat safe. He needs a home living without children to relieve him of the responsibility of having to look after them.If you can give this gorgeous, young boy a forever home please contact us.
