A Lincolnshire charity is desperately appealing for help in finding a terminally ill dog a loving home.
Lincolnshire Greyhound Trust is hoping that someone will lovingly take on terminally ill greyhound Clarence, who has kidney failure.
The lovable six-year-old could only have a matter of weeks left and charity chairman, Kevin Stow is hoping a home can be found so the adorable pet can spend his time remaining in comfort.
“He [Clarence] is well cared for at our kennels,” he said. “But it would be nice for him to be loved in a home.
“We don’t know if its weeks, months or longer, but it is terminal and that is the situation we are dealing with.
“It would be nice to get him in a home even if it isn’t one to one, we want to get him around comfort.”
Mr Stow says there has been interest but with nothing sorted yet they are still looking.
The appeal has been posted on Facebook and shared more than one hundred times.
The post reads: “WE NEED A VERY, VERY SPECIAL PERSON!!
“This is a really tough post to write, but we are looking for someone who will give a home to Clarence, a six-year-old black male.
“Clarence has been diagnosed with terminal kidney failure and there is nothing that we can do for him treatment wise.
“We have no idea whether he has weeks, months or even longer left, but it’d be great if we could find him that extra special home to spend his remaining time.”

“Despite his ailment Clarence is a very happy and friendly lad who is a good boy in the kennel.
“He would be a lovely companion to someone if they were prepared to take him on with his problem.
