A five-year-old Lurcher staying at the Dogs Trust West Calder is patiently waiting to find his forever home.

Larry is fun and friendly boy who is looking for an active family that shares his enthusiasm for life, and of course, plenty of snuggles. The five-year-old pup should be comfortable being left alone for a few hours, provided it's built up gradually as he seems content in his own company.

Larry is a bundle of fun, extending his friendliness to everyone he meets and as your bond deepens, you will discover just how snuggly and playful he truly is. Larry is not just charming - he is also incredibly clever and relishes learning new tricks. His love for food makes him an eager learner and is ready for some enjoyable and educational training sessions.

He prefers walks in quieter places and as a true attention-seeker, he would like to be the sole pet in his new home, where he can relish the spotlight. Larry would love to have a secure garden where he can play off-lead and is well-suited for families with children over 14 who can appreciate the presence of a loving canine companion.

If you are looking for a smart, active, and affectionate Lurcher, Larry is poised to steal your heart with his irresistible charm and boundless energy. You will need to visit him a few times at the centre to build a proper bond but once he knows you properly there's no stopping his friendly and playful approach to life.
