Meet Robert

Robert! Well here is a beautiful sweet 2 year old black male greyhound who is quite simply one of the most laid back boys we have ever known!

He is so very calm and sweet natured and just adores humans and his female greyhounds too! He really loves Liquorise , who he does spend time together with, who is also 2, and they would make a lovely pair for anyone who is wanting to take on a pair!

They chill together, play lovely together. On first meeting, it was like they had always been together.

They are kennelled separate but next to each other, just in case they have to be parted (not what we would prefer) but we need to re-home and unfortunately we are not having a great deal of success with black greyhound just now. Why? Could not tell you - my first ever greyhound was black and my goodness, he changed my world! I adore him as much now as I did when I first laid eyes on him and I lost him back in 2011.

‘A greyhound changed my life’ that was him…look at me now. So where are you all? The ones who are waiting for the right time? the right dog? The right life?

Until one day it is over…too late for them and for you.

You will never know what you have missed out on.

ok, so we have a checklist of what we require. That is welfare. We have to be responsible for the dogs welfare.

These checklist can be found on our website and are things such as secure back gardens with 5 to 6 ft fencing and what type of property, do you have children (is so what age?), any other pets (we do not re-home with cats). And so on.

All these greyhounds desperately need a home. And we desperately need you. Please call Karen or Dawn on 07811 296 029.

Please don’t let Robert be one that is left behind like ‘Brindy’ who is 13 on 25th August 2019. His racing name was Lanesdown Brindy Previously Lanesdown Tiger when in Ireland. He raced at Peterborough and Nottingham after Ireland.

We got a call from a lady 7 years ago to say she had taken him from a trainer and couldn’t cope so had him tied to a radiator in her house and ‘if we didn’t take him’ etc etc etc…. but she brought him to us and he has been left with us. Brindy has issues but could have gone to the right home.

He will now live in final life out here as he is bad on his legs. But he didn’t have to. And he didn’t deserve it.

He loves a cuddle and just needed someone who understood him. Not who treated him badly.

He will always be special to us.

Come and meet him. We will show you - even at 13 - they still need love…..but don’t leave them until 13!

Thank you.

Meet Comarra & Todd

Comarra is a white female greyhound 3 years old and Todd is a fawn male greyhound who is also 3.

They have been kennelled together whilst in racing kennels and to be honest, they have fallen head over heals in love, so much so that Todd cannot bare to be parted from Comarra….He refuses to even try to race as wants to just get back to his girl!

So they have decided to retired them both to us and let us re-home them together as a couple, so that they can live the long happy life together that they both so want and deserve!

This is quite a lovely story for these 2 and heartwarming. And not an unusual one from this particular racing kennel.

They do want to retire them at the first sign of a strain or if they are in a situation such as these 2. They don’t push them.

As with Liquorice, she was brought in as she was not bothered about racing and they wanted her to go to somewhere special and not just be sent anywhere and so she is awaiting that special someone to come forward. She is a delight too.

As for Comarra and Todd, they are made for each other, playful, good clean dogs and will make that special someone who is looking to take on a pair the ideal couple.

So anyone seriously interested then call Karen or Dawn on 07811 296029 or email or

We will not split Comarra and Todd up.

Bruce has been reserved - Meet Bruce

Meet Bruce

Can you offer this 4 year old blue boy a loving home?
He is in need of some fun and love and the obvious few treats and he would take a bit of food and a cuppa tea too - Chicken dinner would be fine .... yorkshire puds? He is on a bit of a special diet as he does not like dog food as in tinned meat! Nor does he like any kind of ‘wet’ foods! But this lad is so very loving, kind, absolutely melts your heart and he is such a good boy you will not know you have him!
Oh... move up on the bed though... he likes to be comfy!

Now Bruce, does go on walks with other greyhounds but is kennelled alone because he does like his own kennel space but this is only due to his unusual food preferences and for this reason alone we are re-homing him as an only dog so no other pets and as we have mentioned recently only children 10 or over will be considered.


Please call Dawn or Karen on 07811 296029 if you want to consider Bruce, Billy, Holly, Ben, George or Lucinda X

Re-Homed -Meet Gentleman Ben

Ben is a 4 year old black male greyhound and is the half brother of Billy.

He is such a gentleman and so very sweet natured that we don't want him to leave!

He has amazing eyes that draw you to him and he loves to fuss gently. You cannot help but fall in love with 'Gentleman Ben'.

Ben is new into our rescue and has already made friend of the other greyhounds! He particularly likes to give Edgar our blind greyhound a kiss on the way in and out of the kennels which can be a bit of a surprise to Edgar at times when he's not expecting it!

But Ben is just a lovely boy who needs that special someone to sweep him off his feet and make is life complete.

Of course we fall in love with them all and yes some have to remain here for various reasons, but, it is only fair the ones that can be re-homed are re-homed (however much we miss them)!!!

If you think you can offer this absolutely gorgeous greyhound his special forever home then please call 07811 296029 or email (please leave details of your name, address and circumstances such as work, family and other pets). Please note we do not re-home with cats.

Apollo - Sady passed away to cancer RIP our gorgeous big lad xxx

Apollo has passed away xxx

Apollo is a gorgeous White & Blue Brindle. He is 8 years old and kennelled with Pandora! They do make a stunning couple!

They are loved up and whilst he is a large boy, Pandora is 'the boss'!

As with Pandora, Apollo is an ex coursing greyhound from Ireland and is extremely strong and is on the sponsorship scheme as we have not found the right person/people yet to take on this pair, as they must be rehomed in a pair.

The simple reason being is that they are so strong and because of their hunting background in Ireland, they will need someone who is very, very experienced in the breed and strong enough to keep a good hold of these two.

Apollo as like Pandora, does like his own breed and larger dogs but no smaller dogs or cats etc again due to his background.

He loves people and children but we must again stress we would only consider 'older, children due to the strength of these dogs.

They are a special pair but will remain on sponsorship until the right home comes.

Meet Billy The Brave - Still looking for his new home?!

Billy is a gorgeous black male greyhound who anyone will just fall in love with!

Can I just say something about Billy - he is just wonderful! He reminds me of Gamble my first Greyhound from Karen although a little smaller in size he is so very calm, loving and just no words ca describe this joy of a lad! If I was walking through these kennels (I know I love them all but he would melt me)! He can go with a female too! He is amazing!

He is new into rescue and waiting for his new family to find him and show him what life is really all, play and! 

He will give love and fun back in bundles! 

A wonderful boy and to watch any ex racing greyhound learn the new experiences of what we have all taken for granted with normal pet dogs such as 'play', is the most wonderful experience for any owner, new and old owners.

Billy will make someone the ideal pet.

If you think you are fun loving enough to make Billys dreams come true, then please call the rescue on 07811 296029 or email

(Please do not forget to add your address and contact number on emails)

Meet Jaxx - Re-homed


Say Hello to Jaxx
He is a 3 & half year old White & Blue boy and he can go with a female greyhound as he does like female company!
He has a lovely character and very friendly.

If you have space in you home and heart for Jaxx and maybe a female for him??? then please call 07811 296029 and talk to Dawn or Karen

We do expect you to make our dogs cups of tea - chicken dinners, yorkshire puds, etc and sing them songs - possibly alsong to Richard Allinsons drive time on Magic radio as they do like him and his music choice! In fact he should really be adopting a greyhound! 
But anyway - they like a bit of Rock (Queen is fine), Bon Jovi, Abba too, Steps but you do have to dance to that too - any questions on this then I am sure me and Edgar (he's blind), can stop in and help - and rope a few owners in to demonstrate!

That said these dogs need homes - so lets get them out of here before they think I am round the bend!

Also waiting for homes is. Billy, Linda, Lucinda, Ben, Rogue

Meet Lucinda

Meet our 'Lucinda'

Before we talk to anyone about Lucinda we need any potential adoptors to know that whilst a beautiful loving girl, gorgeous colour etc, Lucinda has got issues!!! She is not used to pet dogs and has real problems with small dogs and is strong on lead. We therefore are being careful about homing her as needs to be to a previous greyhound owner who can continue to work with her. She is fine with bigger dogs and one a small dog barks and she realises what it is!!! So please call if you are serious and have got the time to help with her only.

Looking for her forever home. She is 3 years old (4 in Oct) and would really like to snuggle up on a sofa as soon as possible!
Now this little girl has been quite a hit with the boys in the kennels! Edgar, Ben and Billy have all taken a shine to her - not to mention Drac and Helsin! She is a really kind, loving, playful and sweet girl! You will just love her, love her, love her!!! 
Anyone who thinks they have what it takes tore-home this gorgeous little girl then please call Dawn or Karen on 07811 296029 or email
Check out our website for more dogs to adopt! Billy, Linda and Ben are still waitng!
We do not re-home with cats and when re-homing with small children we do have to consider each application carefully.

ps...She loves going fundraising and cake shops!!! - and cheese shops and the mugging cars as they are parked at side of road!!! (Yes she did the sponsored walk and was in charge of the charity tin)! X

Meet Opal has passed away

Opal is a 22 year old ex racer who has been at the rescue nearly all her adult life!

Opal is like a 3 year old puppy still to say she is such a great age!! However, she is becoming an older lady even if she doesn't realise it herself.

Opal has always been a fun loving girl and being a really small dog, has the ability to 'get where water can't'. To be fair to this beautiful lady, she is a dream to be around and is nothing but joy and love. 

To imagine life without Opal - well, we just couldn't but then we consider her age? She is not yet the oldest greyhound Karen has had though. That was Wolfie who was 22. Opal is heading for a possible record!

She is kennel with her daughter Gem - who is also a very fun loving girl. They get in bed together and Opal loves to clean Gem! Afterall, Gem is her baby and only 9 years old!!!

If any dog in the kennels were to give us the 'runaround' and not want to come in and just want to play, come rain or shine, it will be Opal! She is a real little monkey.

If you would like to sponsor Opal then please email or you can buy her certificate on our online shop very shortly.




Meet Linda - is now Re-homed xxx

Meet Linda - Yes our little Linda!

Linda is a 3 year old small but full of fun black female ex racing greyhound!

This little lady appears shy on first meeting people but once she knows you, she is adorable and loves to play and is full of fun.

She loves attention and although she has previously when in racing been kenneled with males, she can be quite bossy with then and so is better off on her own as she does seem to like all the attention to herself.

That said she is not in any way funny with other dogs, but is a 'foody', loves her treats too and would never like to share!!

She does think she is a puppy when she plays and loves to cuddle. She is also extremely 'quick of the mark'!

She can also be very calm and sleepy like most greyhounds!

Linda has in her racing career had an injury in her front leg and had pins in it whilst she was in racing. This was operated on some time ago and she is fully recovered. This does not bother her in any way from what we have seen of her but does make her extra special to us for being lucky enough to have survived a track injury such as this and making it to rescue!

If anyone is interested in adopting Linda - then of course get in touch on 07811 296029 or email and I will of course ask Linda if she thinks you are good enough for her (ahaha), please if you email, give details of your address and phone number etc.
