Can you give Cecil a forever home?

Can you give Cecil a forever home?

Poor Cecil has been looking for his forever home for 10 long months. 

The RSPCA West Norfolk says the lurcher is in desperate need of a loving new home. 

He needs a place where he can let off steam and carry out his favourite thing - a 'zoomie'. 


Poor Cecil was picked up as a stray and has been waiting patiently for a new home ever since.

But while other kennel pals at the Eau Brink Rehoming Centre in West Norfolk have come and gone, Cecil remains overlooked - and the longer he waits the more stressed he becomes.

Cecil is two years old and a Lurcher but sadly nothing is known about his past as he was found as a stray and was taken into care by the RSPCA branch.


Penny Jackson-Smith, centre manager, said: "Every time I see Cecil my heart breaks a little more.

"He such a wonderful loving dog, but he just isn't suited to life in a kennels and it's really starting to stress him out.

However, once out of his kennel, Cecil is the funniest, sweetest boy you could meet! He races around our compound like a rocket, he is so super fast!

Cecil came in as a stray, so we don't know his history.

But he does know how to 'sit', so someone must have taught him that.

We know that the right home is out there for our lovely Cecil. He just needs someone who can spend a lot of time with him and can teach him what it is like to be loved. 

Cecil will want two good walks a day.

He would love a secure garden where he can do his 'zoomies' and any 'hide my treats and I will find them' games would be fantastic for him.  

That way he can give his brain a workout too! In return, Cecil will give you all the love he has to give."

cecil needs a home urgently


Cecil would be best suited to confident and experienced dog owners and an adult home only.

Ideally, the centre really wants to find him a forever home that he truly deserves - but even if someone can't take him on forever, they could offer him a foster home, because he finds kennel life so distressing.

Penny added:

"We are urgently looking for a foster home for Cecil. This foster home should be pet-free, preferably in a rural location, with experienced people who know how to deal with behaviour issues."
