I knew even before I seen the video who the dog was , as I heard about it as the time, it was comical because the shelter could not figure out how all the dogs were getting loose each night and getting into the food bags, so after a while finally set up a video and caugrt their culprit Red the lurcher(a greyhound cross), after that footage was shown on the news a lot of applications poured in for him.


The Battersea Home Shelter has quite a history, first started by the Duke and Dutchess of Portland in 1898, Red is enter In their history tim line in 2004

They adopt a quite a few greyhounds and lurchers which is how I first heard of the shelter

I love how he goes to clean out the bowls first and then he goes to free the rest.:D
