This week's Pet of the Week, from Borders Pet Rescue, is Cushy.

The charity told us: "The lovely Cushy has just turned seven years old and is a retired racing greyhound. Being an ex-racer, Cushy is not really used to living in a home environment, although she has spent a little time in a home before coming to us and she is currently staying in a foster home.

"Cushy will need a bit house training, although she has been very clean here at the centre.

"Cushy gets on well with other dogs but she does need a cat-free home.

"Cushy is a very laid back girl who doesn't need much exercise at all – unless cuddles count as exercise!

"If you would like to offer Cushy her forever home, please email Borders Pet Rescue on for an application."
