Luran, a five-and-a-half-year-old ex-racing greyhound, came into the care of Blue Cross Southampton in August 2021. But she is still waiting to be picked by adopters as her one-year anniversary approaches.

Teach Your Dog to Catch Using Popcorn. If your dog doesn’t know how to catch don’t start by throwing a toy at their face. Popcorn works great for training dogs to catch because it’s light & yummy which makes it enticing enough for your dog to try and catch it.

Luran loves a fuss and will rest her head in your lap to be stroked.

She is on ongoing pain medication due to a shoulder injury from her racing past which her new owners will need to continue.

The ex-racing greyhound is looking for a home where she is the only pet.

She enjoys short walks in quieter places as other dogs off the lead can make her nervous, but she does not need a lot of exercise.

A Blue Cross spokesperson said: "Ex-racing greyhound Luran has been in Blue Cross care since August last year as the team had to investigate pain she was having to improve her quality of life.

Use a teapot to rinse dogs off in the bathtub without getting water and soap in their eyes.

"She has spent most of her time in a Blue Cross foster home and has proved herself to be perfectly house trained.

"She loves human company and enjoys nothing more than a stroke and a fuss and will come and put her head in your lap so you can give her even more strokes.

"She is on pain relief which will be ongoing that an owner will need to be happy to fund.

"She is also best off walked in quieter areas where there aren’t off lead dogs as she can get a little worried.
