A TOY mad greyhound is looking for her forever home.

Three-year-old Sophie is very friendly and is currently staying at Dogs Trust Merseyside.

She loves to chase toys for hours on end and would be best living with children aged 12 and over.

A spokeswoman from Dogs Trust Merseyside said: "Toy mad Sophie is a beautiful greyhound, who is livelier than most!

"She will chase toys for hours on end, and actively goes looking for balls as soon as she gets off lead.

"She's very friendly with people and gets very excited if she thinks she's in with a chance of a fuss being made of her.

"She gets along well with other dogs, but as she does love a game of chase, she's better with larger ones, or other Greyhounds.

"She is a retired racer, so care should always be taken around other small dogs or small furry animals.

"Sophie may need a little help with housetraining, as she might have spent her life in racing kennels. She can live with children aged about 12, as she is so into her toys, and may want to take them all for herself. She certainly won't want to share!"
