He's an ex-racing Greyhound and hopes that new owners can can rehome him

He has been at the rehoming centre since January. Staff are baffled as to why potential adopters keep passing him by.

“Devon is a lovely boy who is so full of character. He loves people and is good with other dogs of similar size so we just can’t understand why he is constantly overlooked. Staff have been showering him with lots of attention to make him feel special but nothing beats the comfort of a loving home. Contrary to many people’s assumption of this breed, he doesn’t need much exercise and is happy with a short stroll before settling into a comfy bed with his toys. We hope he’s able to throw his paws in the face of Friday the 13th and will be racing off to his forever home this weekend.”
