Kenilworth Dog Trust's speedy Rocket looking to take-off

A SPEEDY Lurcher at Kenilworth Dogs Trust is looking to get third time lucky after twice nearly being adopted.

The team at the Honiley-based centre says four-year-old Rocket, despite having been found as a stray last year, is full of fun and always ready to take off on an adventure.

Deputy manager Tristan Smith said: “Rocket is a real livewire so he’s looking for a home with active owners who are happy to keep up with him and who have a real zest for life. He loves his food, which is great for training as he is a very enthusiastic pupil if you have a tasty treat to hand!”

Rocket is one of seven lurchers currently at the centre. But, since he has been there longer than most, staff are hoping his wait for a loving home will soon be over.

Since arriving at the centre Rocket has seen many of his canine companions head home and, although he has been reserved twice, he hasn’t yet made it to his very own.

Rocket would like an adult only home due to his boisterous nature. He loves the company of people so he would like his owners to be around a lot, particularly while he settles in, but he is also happy to entertain himself since he loves his toys.

He benefits from keeping his brain as well as his body busy, so food puzzles and searches are a great way to keep him occupied.

Tristan added: “Rocket has been with us quite some time now and we would love him to find his ideal home. He makes us smile every day and we know he will bring fun and laughter to his new family so we are really hoping we can change the tale for him and see him settled into his forever home.”
