Our first dog to be rescued is a Lurcher Called Jon. He was about six months old & him & his sister were found on a rubbish dump, scavenging for food. They had to be ''trapped'' as it was impossible to catch them. Seven years on & he's still a scavenger (even eats the wild birds bread!.). He had an ear allergy & has to have steroids every three days, so he's quite fat for a Lurcher & he probably won't live as long as he should, but he has a happy life. He's had some terrible issues but we've got used to his odd ways & just think that no-one knew what happened in his first six months of life & the way he is isn't his fault... Then a year or so later along came Katie (a Whippet/Saluki cross), she was from a man who had skin cancer & eventually couldn't walk her.... Lastly came Molly (a Saluki), who was in foster care for six weeks to build her up as she was thin & starving when she was found, had been severely ill treated & was covered in scars. She has scars on her face but is beautiful to us. She hated men but has now settled down really well & loves to cuddle up to us...All of our dogs are so special & if we had room we'd have another rescue dog!!...
