For Carol and Michael Rowe, of Grey Towers Avenue, Hornchurch, the choice was simple - rescue not one, but two greyhounds.
Carol said despite their size Floyd and Blue Boy have a gentle and loving nature.
“People don’t like greyhounds but they are beautiful,” said Carol.
“They are really good with our grandchildren and like it when Alyssa, 10, Tyler, four, and Tommy, two, come round to visit as they love all their toys, especially the squeaky ones.”
The dogs love going out for walks.
“They walk everyday in Langtons Gardens and are let off their leads for zoomies round the back field.
“They have lots of friends there Flo, Ray, Ace, Baxter, Dolly, Jim, and Mia.
“But they are always the fastest at running though.”
“When they are not out, they love to sleep on the settee with their pyjamas on,” she continued.
“They need to wear clothes as their skin is very thin and they get cold easily.
“They are both such lovely boys.”
