But she is still waiting to be picked by adopters as her one-year anniversary approaches.
Luran loves a fuss and will rest her head in your lap to be stroked.
Meeting your new puppy, kitten or any other pet can be an exciting experience. Your pet, however, has some adjusting to do. New sights, smells and sounds can be overwhelming for the little guy and keeping a calm household is important.
She is on ongoing pain medication due to a shoulder injury from her racing past which her new owners will need to continue.

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.
Your dog needs his own cozy spot as well, preferably a crate, a comfy bed that’s his alone and a selection of appropriate toys.
"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.
