Marcus finds a new home

Appeal in the Midweek Herald prompted six people to offer unwanted greyhound a fresh start.

THANKS to Midweek Herald readers an unwanted greyhound has found a new home - and so have at least another three dogs.

Readers were touched by the plight of homeless Marucs.

The four-year-old retired greyhound was being left to fester in kennels, paid for by a charity, because potential owners were put off by his coat.

Marcus had developed bald patches while pining for a new home.

But, thanks to you, Marcus is now happy again.

The West of England branch of Greyhound Rescue said a new owner came forward the same day Marcus was featured in the Midweek Herald, on August 18.
