A lurcher with "battle scars" is waiting for a loving home. 

Seven-year-old Joanie is looking for her new owners with the help of Norfolk Greyhound Rescue.

She has had a difficult life so far and has been used for breeding. 

Norfolk Greyhound Rescue said: "She has battle scars over her body but this hasn't stopped this fabulous girl from loving humans.

"She is not high maintenance, she just loves being around her people."
