Ex-racing greyhound Bertie was inviting customers to sign the Ban the Bolt petition at Kelso’s Mayfield Garden Centre last Friday.

The petition calls for the outlawing of killing greyhounds by using a captive bolt gun. Each year thousands of these animals die via this method.

Campaigners claim using a captive bolt gun is inhumane and often has horrendous consequences for the dogs.

Bertie is one of the lucky ones, rescued and rehomed by the Borders Retired Greyhound Trust at Reston in Berwickshire.
