To coincide with the ITV final of ‘Dancing on Ice’, together with a particularly cold snap, Dogs Trust West Calder Rehoming Centre has named four new arrivals Torvill, Dean, Ravel and Bolero. The names for the gorgeous black Greyhound puppies are appropriate because as they mature, they will develop the long legs and grace of an ice dancer.
The puppies’ parents were previously racers, but when the owners found that the bitch was pregnant, as she could no longer race, they found new kennels for her. Greyhound Rescue has since found a home for the mother and two of the puppies and they brought the remaining four puppies to the rehoming centre. The puppies are 6 weeks old, two are male and two are female.
Greyhounds are good natured breeds and very tolerant of children. They make great companions and an ideal family pet as they are equally happy lounging around on the sofa as they are running around the park! However, it is important to take into consideration that these cute puppies will grow into much larger dogs.
Susan Tonner, Dogs Trust West Calder Rehoming Centre Manager, says:
“With the finalists from ‘Dancing on Ice’ dancing to Ravel’s Bolero on Saturday, we have named the puppies to coincide with this event, hoping they will score perfect new homes.”
