A one-year-old female lurcher who was found in a ditch three weeks ago is looking to be rehomed with a family in Norfolk.

Jessie is up for adoption with Norfolk Greyhound Rescue after being fostered by a woman who found her dumped in a ditch "feeling very scared and confused".

According to the rescue, Jessie is very shy when she first meets you but will learn to trust in time.

She is around a year old and enjoys living with other dogs, but is relatively small at 22 inches "to the shoulder".

Norfolk Greyhound Rescue said of Jessie: "I don't like to be shut away, it scares me. So, no crates.

"No one ever taught me any manners so I'll need someone to teach me how I should behave living indoors.

"My foster mum is also showing me how to be good with my toilets. I'm getting the hang of it, but still needs a bit of fine-tuning.

"I think I would be better in a home with someone who will give me space and time, and all the love I have ever wanted, my world so far has been a cruel one."

Jessie is not cat-friendly and may take some time to become accustomed to children. She will be available for homing in five to six weeks as she needs spaying and vaccinating.
