Special appeal for two lonely and overlooked lurchers

Bobby & Tiago

A special appeal has been launched to help find a home for two lurchers who haven’t received any interest since arriving at a rehoming centre.

The black lurchers, Bobby and Tiago are being cared for by dedicated staff and volunteers at RSPCA Llys Nini Branch who run the RSPCA Llys Nini Animal Centre in Penllergaer in Swansea.

Both Bobby and Tiago have sadly been overlooked – and are patiently awaiting for a loving family of their own.


Two-year-old Bobby is looking for a home without a cat, but may be able to live with a dog, and would be able to live with children of secondary school age.

Deputy Centre Manager Julie Fadden said: “We are really desperately looking for a home for our wonderful Bobby.

“He came into the center with two other dogs who have now been rehomed. They are now living their best lives, while Bobby has been overlooked. We can tell he misses his kennel mates and hope his forever home is just around the corner.

“He is a fabulous dog and is clean in his kennel. Like most lurchers, when he is in a home environment he spends most of his time asleep and is the gentlest and most loving dog.”


While Tiago sadly is another lurcher who hadn’t had any interest from potential adopters.

Tiago is the most overlooked dog we have,” said Julie. “He is a young lurcher, full of life and love but we have no interest in him at all.

“All he needs is a family to love him and help develop his confidence. He does have a fear of new experiences but Tiago has made so much progress and can now meet new people with much less fear. This is something the right home will continue to help him progress with.

“He may be able to live with a friendly dog, but would prefer not to live with a cat. Tiago may also be suited best to an adult only household.”

Cost of living crisis

Anyone interested in adopting Bobby or Tiago can express their interest using the online application form via the RSPCA Llys Nini Branch website.

All the animals looking for homes available for rehoming can be viewed on the RSPCA Llys Nini Branch website.

Julie added: “If you are interested in adopting one of our amazing animals please get in touch. Or if you can help us by fostering we would love to hear from you.

“Due to the cost of living crisis and other factors we are full to bursting and we always have pets waiting to come in so we can rehabilitate and rehome them.

“Rehoming has really slowed down at the moment, so if you are considering and able to take on a pet, please consider rehoming a rescue animal instead of buying.”

People who want dogs ought to go for one or both of these, or another dog from the Rescue Centre. Resist the temptation to buy pups from breeders and save money.
