Stu joined us via Greyhound Gap who have been coordinating the urgent rescue and placing of multiple greyhounds from an emergency situation in Wales. We were pleased to have been able to take both Stu and Lisa.
So far Stu appears to be a very loving and calm lad.
We're very sad to say that our lovely Pluto's home didn't work out and sadly he's had to be returned. Pluto has always been so laid back while in kennels and during his stay in foster with Laura, Damien and their 2 greyhounds but unfortunately in his new home he got too big for his boots and wanted all the attention for himself resulting in the other greyhound staying out of his way and becoming very withdrawn. Pluto previously went on a trial elsewhere but was returned due to the other dog not letting him near the owners. Pluto seems to have gone from the bullied boy to the bully! This lad really is amazing with people, he's great with other dogs on walks and we haven't witnessed any negative behaviour from him while in kennels or on foster. Pluto loves other dogs so it would be a shame for him to be an only pet but he will need a home with a confident female dog who will keep him in check without overpowering him. This boy really does have so much to offer. His mum was devastated it didn't work out and has stressed just how good he was in every other sense; house training, mealtimes, on walks, being left etc. She has kindly offered to discuss Pluto with anyone interested in him as has Laura who fostered him.

Buck is a bull lurcher boy who we were asked to take as an emergency after he was advertised 'free to a good home' following the death of his owner. Buck was understandably very stressed on his arrival. He'd had his whole world turned upside down and found himself in a busy kennel block after years as a family pet. Buck lost a lot of weight through stress and pining for his family but in time he's settled and with 3 meals a day his weight has slowly but steadily increased. Buck is a very sweet boy, he was worked when he was young before his previous owners got him and so still has a very keen chase instinct especially in the woods but he loves his walks and away from any small furries he walks really well on his lead. Buck is really friendly towards our other dogs, especially the girls but as Buck hadn't been socialised with many dogs prior to coming to us he's not very good at reading other dogs and he can be quite 'heavy headed' in his greetings and usually headbutts when I'm sure he only intends to have a little sniff! Buck doesn't mean any malice but with how overly friendly his greetings are he has been told off a few times by other dogs. Buck has accepted this and backed off though without retaliating. Buck is a big strong lad and although he walks nicely on his lead he can pull when he wants to so a new owner needs to be aware of Bucks strength. Buck loves his walks, he knows his basic commands but above all Buck loves human attention and is at his happiest when someone sits with him for a fuss and cuddle and Buck is usually so content to have the loving attention he so desperately misses that he quite often falls asleep within a few minutes of having a cuddle! Buck is completely house trained and tries to be clean in his kennel. Due to his size and clumsy over enthusiastic greetings we are looking for a home without any young children where Buck will get lots of attention, tlc and nice walks to enjoy his later years. This boy really has got so much love to give.
Jamie came in on 17th September along with Jilly, more information to follow once we've assessed him.

We took Teddy into our care as an emergency when his racing owner wanted him gone asap as sadly this man refuses to wait when he wants one of his dogs gone and really doesn't care where they end up or what happens to them. Teddy we believe was kept in a shed with very little interaction. When he arrived we struggled to keep weight on him as he was just so happy he was playing and bouncing about constantly. He'd jump up and run to greet anyone that came near. He's such a happy chappy with such a silly side he has everyone in tears laughing at his antics. Teddy loves to hear himself and if he wants something he knows how to get your attention! People are often left speechless at how high Teddy can jump - he's been known to bang his head on the ceiling in his excitement! Teddy is more like a high energy lurcher than a laid back greyhound. He loves to play and go nice long walks but he also loves to cuddle and has a lovely soft side too, more so when he's tired! Teddy is known as the kennel clown, he's the boy that everyone loves, he makes everyone smile but sadly no one wants to take him home. Obviously at the moment Teddy is in kennels so his cheekiness is enhanced as his company and 1-1 attention is limited so he makes the most of having any attention and barks when he wants 'his turn' but once in a home with all the attention he could wish for I genuinely think this cheeky lad will calm right down and be the perfect companion. Teddy loves to play, he's going for a record in how quickly he can get treats out of his kong!! He has got a mischievous side and if he's left to become bored he will look for his own entertainment!

Our gorgeous cuddly Staffie boy Ollie came into our care as an emergency when his previous owners landlord said he couldn't have a dog and so he was going to put him to sleep. Ollie went into a Staffie-experienced foster home and was later adopted. Sadly after 2 happy years in the home Ollie came back to us through no fault of his own when his owner became ill. Ollie has come back just the same as the lovely cuddly boy we know and love. He hasn't got a bad bone in him and has made friends with everyone he's met; men, women, kids and dogs alike.
Ollie is fully house trained, he travels well and he just loves love. He's a strong boy but walks really nicely on his harness and trots along happily with a spring in his step, a big Staffie smile on his face and his trademark non stop waggy tail.
Sadly despite his gorgeous looks, fab temperament and happy cuddly nature Ollie isn't being noticed as he's a Staffie in a sighthound rescue so if anyone reading this could tell their Staffie loving friends about our wonderful boy it'd really help him find his forever family!
Ollie has lived with children in both his previous homes however we would prefer older or dog savvy children who will respect Ollie and his space.

Harvey is a gorgeous 4 year old boy who was handed over to us by his trainer in early 2017. He arrived very scared of everything and at first wouldn't even venture off his bed to eat.
Since moving into his foster home in May 2017, Harvey’s personality has really blossomed and he is proving to be a soft, gentle and fun loving boy.
Currently living with two other greyhounds, a male and a female, Harvey has settled into the routine of the house and is finally loving life. He thrives in familiar surroundings and, although he loves snuggling up with his fosterers on the sofa, he’s happy to be left when they're at work and hasn’t shown any signs of separation anxiety. However, as new surroundings worry Harvey, we are looking to rehome him with someone with a calm and settled home life.
His fosterers have had no complaints about Harvey’s behaviour and he’s been completely clean throughout his stay. He’s behaved impeccably when small dogs and young children have visited but it’s unlikely that he would get on with cats.
Harvey is good on his lead and really enjoys his walks. He’s friendly towards other dog breeds and he likes to greet dogs he meets when out and about. He also likes to play with the two dogs he’s currently staying with and will now often instigate play but he's very respectful of their personal space whilst on their beds.
Harvey is looking for a quiet home where he can enjoy a consistent routine, and although he would enjoy the company of other dogs, we think he could adjust to being an only dog especially if someone was at home a lot of the time.

This lovely lad is a typical Saluki lurcher who likes to hear himself sing and will cry for attention bless him. He was given up by his owners a couple of months ago now through no fault of his own following the breakdown of their relationship. Bailey had clearly not experienced much before coming to us, everything was very scary to him at first; walking on a lead, busy places, traffic and especially travelling but Bailey has come a hell of a long way since arriving 2 months ago and now travels relatively well, he occasionally likes to remind you he's still there with a little whimper just in case he's been forgotten but he's no longer travel sick and no longer squeals which he did for full journeys to start with! Bailey had also not had any training or been given any boundaries. This was clear to see when we picked him up and he was climbing all over the furniture and diving on everyone in the house demanding attention. He’s learnt a few manners now but would definitely benefit from further training ideally with an owner who is experienced with salukis, they're a crazy yet stubbornly strong willed breed and do need routine and boundaries. That said Bailey is such an affectionate boy who loves fuss and cuddles he also loves his walks and walks beautifully on his lead. We feel this lovable lad would be best suited to a home where he'd have a confident female dog as a playmate and where he wouldn't be left for long periods.
