He was rescued as a “very hungry stray” who didn’t know what it was like to be loved.
And now he’s looking for an owner who can show him just that.
Lurcher Arthur currently lives with Jerry Green Dog Rescue in Nottinghamshire but is ready to move in with his new family.
The three-year-old is consistently overlooked for not being a “desirable breed” and struggling to get anyone’s attention.
A statement, written in Arthur’s voice, reads: “I was a very hungry stray but now I’m thankful for the warm bed, full stomach and snuggles from the staff.

“I love playing with toys, especially teddies – they are my favourites! My friends here say I’m the cuddliest boy ever, I can’t get enough of it.”
He is looking for an owner who will spend most of the day at home as he does not want to be left alone for too long while he is still settling in.
Although he can live with another dog, Arthur cannot be placed in a household with existing smaller pets – such as rabbits and guinea pigs.
He can live with children who are key stage three or higher.
The statement continued, “I’m looking for a home where I can be someone’s best friend.
“I’m a gentle boy who doesn’t take up as much space as you might think! I’m all-legged I can be shy at first, I’m a big foodie so it doesn’t take me long to come to my senses.
“I like making zoomies in the garden, so I’d like to have my own space to have fun. I have long legs so I need a 6ft fence to protect me.”
Jerry Green Dog Rescue has been transforming the lives of abandoned and unwanted dogs for nearly 60 years.
Founded by dog lover Jerry Green, the rescue center opened its first location in North Lincolnshire in 1961.
A further three locations have since opened – one in South Yorkshire, East Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.
This allows the dogs to roam at any location if they are unable to secure their home in their original placement forever.
A spokeswoman said: “All dogs deserve a good life and a safe, loving home. We exist to offer homeless dogs a safe place and to find new loving places for them to live in.”
They follow the motto: “Once a Jerry Green dog, always a Jerry Green dog.”
