More about ALAN

Meet our sweet boy Alan!

Alan is an ex-racing Greyhound who is now looking for a loving home in which to live out his retirement years. He came into our care from another rescue and was rehomed but then unfortunately returned to Battersea, due to struggling with separation anxiety when left on his own. Alan will need new owners who have minimal leaving hours and are confident they have the time and patience to work on his separation anxiety and build up any time spent alone slowly.

Alan has shown to be a friendly and affectionate boy, who enjoys nothing more than leaning into his people for neck scratches and a good fuss. He also loves squeaky toys and has shown a playful side, getting the zoomies in our paddock spaces when tennis balls are involved!

On walks, Alan will need to be kept on lead and muzzled as a precaution - due to his ex-racing history and chase behaviours towards smaller dogs and animals. After his walks, Alan loves to lie upside down on his bed with his legs in all directions and take a well earned rest!

Alan is excited to start his new life in a forever home where he has more than one carer and access to a private and secure garden, so he can have off lead zoomies and a good potter about.

Could Alan be the lovely dog you're looking for? If so, please do get in touch with the Rehoming team in London at, providing a brief overview of your previous experience with dogs, current set up and how you can meet his needs.

If you have not registered yet, please do so on the Battersea website before getting in touch.

Please note that due to volume of enquiries we may have at any time, we will only be able to respond to homes that we feel best meet Alan's needs.
