An absolute sweetheart with most beautiful deep, dark eyes aptly describes Maurie.

At times, Maurie can be a little shy and sensitive, so he is looking for an understanding and caring home that will continue to build his confidence. Maurie enjoys the company of other canine friends but would also be fine as an only dog in a family.

Maurie loves his meal times, enjoys getting out for a walk and doesn’t mind an outing in the car. But he loves nothing more than a snuggle with his humans in the mornings. Beware though…Maurie has an extraordinary ability to make you sleep in and be late for work!

Maurie is in care with other greyhounds, male and female and is learning to be tolerant of two indoor, confident and bossy cats.

Maurie is located in the Newcastle area. If you think you have the perfect home for sweet snuggle bug Maurie, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact Friends of the Hound or complete an adoption application online.
