Brilliant bouncy Boris

Featured in episode eight of The Dog Rescuers

Boris is a four-year-old lurcher who’s been at Leybourne Animal Centre, near West Malling in Kent, for around nine months.

Boris’ goofy smile and infectious personality have made him a firm favourite with staff at Leybourne Animal Centre, but now he’s ready to go to a new home. Could you be the one to welcome brilliant Boris into your life?

Snoozing in the sunshine

Boris came to us because he was being kept tied up in a garden, in conditions that weren’t great. But the tough times that he’s been through haven’t knocked him down. He’s a loving, playful dog, with a bit of a cheeky personality.

I know you shouldn’t have favourites, but he just has this way about him - Hayley Browning, Animal Care Assistant


You’re most likely to find Borris snoozing in the sun, playing with his squeaky toys, or wagging his tail with a new friend. He’s always happy to see everyone and anyone, even the vet.

Brilliant Boris loves nothing better than the chance to have a good bounce around outdoors. He has his silly side, and as you can see in the video above, he can be a bit clumsy too!

The perfect home for happy-go-lucky Boris

Boris would be happy to live in a home with other dogs, but they’ll need to be able to keep up with his boisterous nature, so small or nervous dogs wouldn’t make a great fit.


Unfortunately, he won’t make a great companion for cats or small animals.

We think he’d be a great family dog, but because he’s a bit bouncy, he’d be better living with older primary school aged children and above.

Boris has got some good basic training. But as he has spent quite a while living in kennels, he will probably need some reminders on his housetraining, and someone who can be around most of the day to start with.

Could you make naturally happy Boris even happier?

Boris will be missed a lot at the animal centre, but it’s time for him to have the loving forever home that he deserves.
