BEX – (named for racing as) Becks In Time
Bex came to the attention of AFG in January 2005, and luckily a foster carer was able to pick him up to take him straight to her home.
In November 2004 Bex was handed over to a young couple stationed at R.A.F. Lakenheath in Suffolk by his racing owner Mr Jubb. He was handed over at the fiveways roundabout, near the airbase, so no home check etc was carried out by Jubb, and no measures taken to secure the future welfare and security of this young 3 year old greyhound with a short racing history – Jubb had informed the new owners that Bex was about 1 year to 18 months old and had never raced.
The couple contacted AFG in January 2005, when they grew tired of him.
It is absolutely not recommended to home any animal on to military bases, whereby people can be transferred to a base anywhere in the world at short notice, usually animals will be left behind. Jubb would obviously not have been bothered by this.
Luckily Bex spent the rest of his life full of love and respect in his foster home which became his forever home
Now R.I.P Dear Bex 10.12.2001 to 31.08.2010
Sadly, on August 31st 2010, after developing an aggressive and incurable form of bone cancer in his shoulder, his devoted carer Jean had to make the unbearable decision to let him go.
He was a wonderful gentle friendly boy who never put a foot wrong and helped settle in many of Jeans fostered hounds. He is very desperately missed by Jean and her other rescued hounds.
