Stevie is looking for his forever home

A Greyhound is still looking for a forever home seven years after having been found wandering the streets as a puppy.

Despite the best efforts of the team at Dogs Trust Shrewsbury, Stevie will mark his seventh year in kennels on Thursday (4 April), much to the astonishment of staff.

Having notched up more than 2,550 days in kennels, the team make sure Stevie has as much fun as possible, taking him for off-site walks and even sleepovers with staff who say he is the perfect house guest.

Stevie was diagnosed with exercise induced collapse not long after he arrived at the rehoming centre, which means the team are careful with the amount and type of exercise he does. However, just like many Greyhounds, he is more than happy to spend much of the day snoozing on a comfy bed.

Stevie is looking for a home without any other pets and no children so he can lap up all the love on offer when he finally finds his ideal home.

We will continue to love and look after him until the day comes when he heads off to his forever home. When the time comes to finally say goodbye it will be a fond but very tearful farewell. Dogs Trust Shrewsbury won't be the same without him but we are really hoping that it won't be long before he finally captures someone's heart.

– Louise Campbell, Manager at Dogs Trust Shrewsbury
