Bessie is one gorgeous Lurcher. She is possibly Greyhound Saluki mix. This lady is very loving and friendly with all people. She came into our care from the stray kennels with three legs having had her right front leg removed through serious injury prior to coming into our care. Bessie has possibly been a working dog in the past however we feel she did not start off this way. She knows all her basic commands and also love to play given the chance. Bess enjoys cuddles and to potter. She has adjusted well to having her leg removed and is now looking for a home. She has a wonderful temperament however she still could not be rehomed with small furries. Bess is five years old and a happy girl despite her horrific injuries. She ideally needs a home with a larger garden and some steadier walks. She enjoys the outdoors and going out walking and can initially be strong on her lead. She soon calls down. Bessie needs a new start as soon as possible and would love some much deserved home comforts. Bess is one adorable dog with a loving and very friendly nature. She is super clean in her kennel and we feel where Bessie ended up was not where she started out. This stunning girl knows all her commands and is in heaven having people time. CAN YOU OFFER HER A HOME? PLEASE READ ON.



Bessie needs a very loving home. She needs a garden, shorter walks and loads of company. At five years old she has a long life in front of her and she deserves it to be lavish. Bess loves the woodlands and a good sniff about however would be unable to partake in very long walks. Regular shorter walks would be perfect. We appeal to find her a home where someone has possibly some experience of three legged dogs however this is jot essential. Bess loves company and time out and would be so happy with a garden to potter in alongside some shorter adventures. This dog loves a fuss and has a special adorable nature. She is gorgeous. She is a larger lurcher but also owns a big heart. Bess has been accepting out walking with other dogs however can be possessive of sharing her attention at times. She will snap at some dogs in her comfort zone. We feel an only dog home is best suited. If you feel you can offer Bess a new start then please fill in an adoption form below by clicking the ADOPT ME button. Calls are also welcome to discuss any of our rescue dogs. Please call after 6 o'clock. We are a rescue that doesn't pay staff so we are always extremely busy and snowed under with work. 

Please contact us at Good Life with information about yourself and the home you can offer. We work hard to match our adopters and dogs together ensuring that humans and hounds are very happy.  We encourage adoption and invite anyone with misconceptions of rescue dogs to come and meet some very special dogs with huge characters and love to give. We are very active in the work we do and are very dedicated to the welfare of the dogs in our care and the Yorkshire strays. We have no staff and exist as a volunteer based charity. Support is always greatly received. 

Rescue dogs have often suffered difficult lives and some form of trauma or abandonment. We ask people to consider the huge commitment and lifestyle change of owning and adopting a dog. Rescue dogs often need time to settle back into a home. This can take at least four to five weeks for dogs to feel settled and more secure. If you are dedicated and understand that all rescue dogs need time to adjust then we would love to hear from you.
