Jerry Green Dog Rescue searches for a home for nine-year-old Ludo, who is at North Lincolnshire rescue centre in Brigg





A dog with ‘so much love to give’ is searching for his forever home.

Staff and volunteers at Jerry Green Dog Rescue’s North Lincolnshire branch in Brigg are reaching out to the community to find a family for nine-year-old Ludo, whose story they say is “one of grief, coupled with resilience and unwavering hope.”

The crossbreed first came to the centre in 2016, and after finding a family, unfortunate circumstances due to no fault of his own meant he was returned just three years later.

Despite this setback, Ludo was adopted again later in 2019 to a new home, only to face another heartbreak in January of this year, when his owner passed away.

In and out of rescues since he was one, Jerry Green says that his spirit remains, and he has the gentlest of natures and a truly loving disposition.

The centre believes that part of the reason why he hasn’t been adopted is because of his dark fur, as a 2002 study in the Journal of Applied Animal Science revealed lower adoption rates for animals with black coats, something they have observed by being in operation for more than 50 years.

Described as a sensitive soul, Ludo thrives on human companionship and is known as a gentle giant by his foster family.

He enjoys nothing more than snuggling on the sofa and going for leisurely walks, displaying impeccable manners even when walked by a 90-year-old.

However, he can get worried when left alone and would benefit from owners who are home for most of the day.

Due to his size, Ludo would be best suited to a home with children over the age of 11.

He still has a playful side and can occasionally be found having ‘zoomies’ around the garden.

“Ludo is a true gentleman looking for a sofa to call his own,” said Kim Charlton, dog welfare assistant at Jerry Green Dog Rescue.

“He has so much love to give and deserves to spend his golden years in a wonderful home.”

Those interested are being asked to contact the centre on 01652 653343 or email nlincs@jerrygreendogs.org.uk
