A HANDSOME pup is in need of a forever home after spending nearly four years at a local animal shelter.

David, a delightful lurcher cross, has been in the care of the Scottish SPCA’s Dunbartonshire Centre for more than 1,300 days.

Clydebank Post:

He is between six and nine years old.

David is an easygoing, playful dog and would love to have a new family to call his own after being continuously overlooked.

Clydebank Post:

His new owners will need to have experience with sighthound breeds or have done their research into their prey drive.

Irene Mineo, senior animal care assistant, said: “Despite having a difficult start in life, David is an easy-going boy with a wonderful smile.

"He is very playful and would happily spend all day in the garden with his toys if he could.

“David does have a high prey drive so needs to stay on a lead but he is very well-mannered and walks nicely by your side. He loves long walks and is fantastic company.

“Although we feel he would be best suited to a home where he is the only animal, he does enjoy bumping into other dogs when out and about, especially if their temperament is calm like his.

“David will need a new family who have experience of sighthound breeds or have done their research into their prey drive and are confident they can help him be a model canine citizen. 

“After spending so long in our care, we would love for David to find his happy ever after.”
