Could You Offer Home To Wales’ Loneliest Lurcher?


Dogs Trust Bridgend are making a special appeal for their longest serving canine resident, Conker who has been waiting for a home for over 250 days.

The two-year-old Lurcher originally found himself in the care of Dogs Trust Bridgend in November 2018. Since then he has been adopted twice but sadly it was not meant to be and been waiting for it to be third time lucky since July 2019. He has been overlooked by more than 1,200 potential new owners and has had to sit back and watch as over 400 dogs have being rehomed since he has been at the centre.

Kim Davies, Training and Behaviour Advisor at Dogs Trust Bridgend says:“We are lucky enough to have seen hundreds of dogs find their forever homes over the last seven months but nothing could really compare to seeing Conker finding a loving new family of his own.

“Conker is a fantastic lad who can be shy when it comes to meeting new people so we think this might be what puts people off adopting him. But with patience and time, Conker’s true personality will shine through and he loves to play and spend time with his human friends. He could live with a family with children aged 14 or above and would also prefer to live with another dog who can show him the ropes.

“With his stunning looks, Conker has become quite the model at the rehoming centre and will happily pose for photos to get him noticed on our website and social media channels but so far he hasn’t had much luck in finding the right forever home. We’ve all got a soft spot for Conker and whilst we don’t want to see him go, we are hoping that there is a local dog lover who has space in their home and heart to give him a family of his own.”
