Agoraphobic Greyhound prepares for Battersea Old Windsor’s Easter Egg Hunt
A Greyhound that is petrified of the great outdoors is trying to be bold this Easter and challenge himself to Battersea Old Windsor’s Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday 5 April.
Four year old Patch has been in Battersea’s care for over 200 days – almost seven times longer than the average stay for a dog – and with his racing days behind him, he is now searching for a cracking family this Easter.
Hannah Gee, Team Leader at Battersea Old Windsor says: “Patch is such a sweet boy and will make a fantastic companion – he so deserves to be in a good home. We hope we can work on his fear of being outside and help find him a forever home soon. We feel that once he’s in the right environment with patient and understanding owners, he’ll start to come out of himself and prove to be a loving and loyal pet.”
Patch is looking for a home with experienced dog owners who have children over 13 years old and live away from the inner city. He can live with other dogs and needs understanding owners that can take things at a slow pace.
The free family event at Battersea Old Windsor is from 10.30am to 3.30pm and will include an Easter Egg Hunt, a chance to meet some dogs looking for new homes, tea and cakes, and arts and crafts.
If you can’t make the event you can still show an abandoned dog like Patch that you care by sending them an Easter basket packed with treats and toys http://www.battersea.org.uk/shop
