Dogs For Adoption

Misty - Urgent Foster Home Required - Due To Owner Illness

Please can anyone help - looking for a foster home which can lead to adoption if so wished for by right home?

Misty is a 3 year old female greyhound who has been in a home for las 2 years. She is fawn and very pretty and loves people.

She is however very ‘foody’ and so needs to be an only pet. This is her only issue and why we would prefer an experienced owner with no other pets or children.

We really don’t want her to come back into kennels as she is a very loving girl and this just wouldn’t be fair to her but the owner has been taken ill and this may be unavoidable unless we can sort a foster home extremely urgently.

Please contact Karen or Dawn on 07811 296029 or email dawn@greyhoundrescue.org.uk

Robert Has Been Re-homed

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.

Dawn

Bruce has been re-homed - 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.

NO CATS!

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

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 about....love, play and sleep....food! 

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 dawn@greyhoundrescue.org.uk

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

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 dawn@greyhoundrescue.org.uk
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
