A "sweet" rescue pooch is desperately searching for a loving home as he is very unhappy in kennels.

Dylan is a "gorgeous" lurcher-cross-whippet who found himself at PACT Animal Sanctuary near Hingham after his owners were concerned about his safety.

A good jumper, Dylan kept escaping out of his previous owner's garden which they were not able to modify to keep him safe.

His next owners should have a fence which is six feet tall.

Born in 2015, he has lived with children and another dog, but cannot live with cats.

The rescue centre believes Dylan would benefit from having someone home most of the time to begin with, to build up his confidence.

A spokeswoman from PACT Animal Sanctuary said: "Dylan enjoys a cuddle and time over the road in our training field.

"He is a very sweet boy who is not happy in kennels at all.

"We are eager to find this lovely gentle boy a home as soon as possible."
