Leah is a five year old greyhound who was originally rescued from appalling conditions at the end of her racing career and happily rehomed very quickly.

The 'happy and friendly' dog has recently come back into Greyhound Rescue West of England’s care when her new owner could no longer care for her.

As Leah has lived in foster care with a boxer and two other greyhounds, she would enjoy a home with the company of other dogs. The charity have launched an appeal to attempt to find her a new home.

If you can help by offering Leah or another dog a home, get in touch with GRWE on 07000 785 092.

" Before, I could take him out for a walk once a day and he wouldn't want to go out. But now he's at the front door. There's a lot of sympathy for him but he's not bothered in the slightest."

– Maggie Thornton, Boswell's owner
