Hecktor is five-years-old and currently lives at the Blue Cross Suffolk Rehoming Centre in Wherstead, on the outskirts of Ipswich. 

His profile says he is "hoping to find an active home that will take him on walks to explore the world.

"Hecktor's most favourite thing is playing with a tennis ball or fluffy toy. He'll happily run about in our enclosed paddock and engage in a game with us.

"Hecktor has done well when meeting dogs on walks and could have walking companions but at this time he is looking to be the only dog in the home.

"Hecktor will need support with settling back into a home environment. He has lived with children before and could do so again- as long as they're happy with larger dogs."

A spokeswoman for the centre said Hecktor is looking for his new home as his former owner could no longer afford to keep him.
