LUCY is looking for a home and the family of her late owner have made a generous offer they hope will prompt someone to take her.

The whippet-cross – who will celebrate her seventh birthday on December 11 – has epilepsy, something that would ordinarily make her hard to rehome, but the family of her late owner have offered to pay for her medication for the rest of her life so her new family is not burdened by expensive vet bills.

Lucy is currently being cared for at the Wisbech branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust, in Marshland St James, but has spent the past six months in kennels.

Barbara Townsend, who is taking care of the dog, said: “Lucy was devoted to her late owner and late canine friend, who all lived together in a small bungalow. Sadly, while her owner was in hospital for six months, she was in boarding kennels and lost quite a lot of weight. But she is a lovely, friendly dog who loves company.”

Barbara said any potential adopter should be at home a lot and be capable of sticking to a strict medication routine. Lucy has not had a fit for quite a while thanks to regular blood tests.
