A greyhound with a heart-shaped patch on his fur has finally found love.
Mac, an ex-racer, has the unusual love heart marking on his side.
But despite his unusual markings, Mac languished in Dogs Trust Shoreham Rehoming Centre for almost a year, until he finally adopted last December.
He was adopted by the Keating family from Portslade, Brighton and Hove, where he met Mabel the greyhound, and a romance quickly blossomed between the two.
Erica Keating, said: “Mac is such a funny boy with his own unique character, he can be a stubborn lad, but that only adds to his appeal!
“He now spends his days in the company of Mabel who just wants to cuddle up next to him and play and I can tell that the two of them are slowly forming a loving bond that is going to last forever.
“His first Valentine’s Day with us is a really loved-up one – complete with a happy ever after.”
Tracey Rae, Dogs Trust Shoreham Rehoming Centre manager, said: “Whilst in our care, Mac showed himself to be a true gentleman with typically laid-back and docile Greyhound characteristics.
“Although not unusual for a Greyhound, Mac was exceptionally tall, but what made him most special of all was the heart shaped patch on his side.
“As well as being friendly to all people he met, Mac was also a sociable boy amongst his kennel mates.
“We’re delighted he’s now having the most romantic of Valentine’s Days alongside his special someone and his new, loving family.”
