A DOGGIE double is hoping to win big in the form of a new home during Wimbledon season.
As Wimbledon fever hots up across the country, canine carers at Dogs Trust Kenilworth hope a set of doubles will find themselves a love match.
Eight-year-old Lurcher Kira and three-year-old Greyhound Kip found themselves in the care of Dogs Trust through no fault of their own.
But now the dream team hope they will be served up a forever home together during Wimbledon fortnight.
Deputy manager Claire Rowe said: “They are both very sweet natured and make a great team. They love people and are very affectionate once they know you.
“Both are very easy-going and Kip definitely prefers the limelight, with Kira relying on him for confidence.
“With their long, lean athletic bodies, they love a good run-around but unlike a tennis champ, they don’t like to be on the go for hours and hours. Just like most sighthounds, they much prefer having a snooze and kicking back on a big sofa.”
The pair can live with children aged 12 and above, but would prefer to be the only canine companions in the home.
They would need a secure garden and plenty of toys to run around with.
Emma added: “Many sighthounds find themselves in rescue centres up and down the country. When it comes to Kip and Kira, they are so lovely and would make great pets in a family who want double the fun, double the cuddles, double the kisses and double the love to take this beautiful duo home.
“We’re really hoping they will be settled comfortably in their new home, snuggled up alongside their forever family in time to watch the Wimbledon champions lift their trophies.”
