Dog’s Name: Scooby
Estimated age: 1 year
Breed: possibly Saluki, Whippet, Greyhound Cross
Date came to AfG’s care: 12-08-2005
Date homed: 16-12-2005

Scooby was underweight with a lack of muscle. We believe the home we got him from was his 3rd home in a very short time.

He settled very quickly in his foster home and was soon able to be neutered.

After 6 months in foster care, where he was well socialized and brought up to good health.

Scooby found his new home on 16th December 2005, with Abby the blue greyhound girl adopted from AFG 2 years previously (see Abby in ‘HOMED: GREYHOUNDS’).

Sadly Abby was lost to cancer in 2009 and is greatly missed.

Soon after, Scooby was joined by little lurcher Rubi (see below).
