A volunteer walker at Lurcher Link Rescue described him as “a star and a real sweetie” who “was great on the lead and loves cuddles”.
Another said: “We met Benny yesterday and walked him. He pulled a little at first, but was well behaved once he understood not to do it.
“He’s a nice looking lad, with a lovely, fun-loving nature. He was quite alert a lot of the time, watching what was going on across in the surrounding fields.
“He was attentive though and willing to please.”
Since opening in 2003, the Lurcher Link Rescue has saved nearly 1,000 Lurchers who otherwise might have been put to sleep.
