PLUTO


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and wanted all the attention for himself resulting in the other greyhound staying out of his way and becoming very withdrawn.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.

TAYLOR


Taylor is not quite 3, he finished racing due to straining his groin and since then he's been kept 'to toilet train' the litters of pups his trainer had bred! I bet the pups tormented the life out of this sweet boy but it just shows how gentle he is as not many dogs would share a kennel with a pup let alone litters of them! Taylor is calm and confident and is helping our very nervous girl Piper settle in.


More information to follow as we get to know him.

BUCK


Buck is a 9 year old 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 is currently very stressed, he's had his whole world turned upside down and found himself in a noisy kennel block after years as a family pet. Buck will settle in time though and seems a very sweet natured boy.

TAZ

Date of birth: 1st August 2015

This handsome fella came into our care as a pup when his owners existing dog wouldn't accept him and he was at risk of falling into the wrong hands. Taz went into foster where he came on in leaps and bounds and ended up staying. He had an amazing bond with the couple, their 2 female dogs and especially their young daughter but sadly through no fault of his own Taz has had to come back to us. One of Taz's owners became very ill and in time his other owner struggled to cope with juggling everything. It all got too much and the breaking point came when a dog they were looking after - an entire male - growled at Taz in his own home and the 2 dogs had words, luckily nothing serious but following a long conversation with his owner that evening it became clear the family were struggling with the situation and we offered to take Taz back which they felt might be for the best. Taz is very bewildered since coming back and going into kennels. The poor boy has had his whole life turned upside down. Taz is not currently available for adoption but in time we're sure he'll make an amazing addition to a special family. Taz is used to going off lead, he's house trained, good with other dogs, dog savvy children and people, men especially. Taz travels well and is always eager to please. We had Taz's 'lightning bolt' tail checked when he originally came into our care as it looked like it'd been trapped and broken in 2 places. The owner he came from said he'd been born like it but we weren't sure. Our vet however believed that was the case and as it doesn't cause him any pain or discomfort it was best to leave it how it is. It definitely adds to his character.

OLLIE


Date of birth: 14th December 2012


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


Harvey is a gorgeous big black boy who we were asked to take as an emergency when he was no longer of use as a racer and was at risk of being put to sleep. He arrived very frightened and shut down and wouldn't even venture out of his bed the first few days but he now knows he's safe and has really relaxed and loves to greet us with a waggy tail and have a good fuss. Harvey arrived with an injured hip/groin this has really settled down now following rest and medication and we are now gradually starting to build his exercise up. We don't believe his racing injury will cause any long term issues within a home.

JESTER


Date of birth: November 2012


Jester is a lovely brindle boy who is kennelled with Midnight who he was with in racing kennels before they arrived into our care together. The two get on lovely but don't have to be rehomed together and would quite happily live separately. Jester is a stunning boy, he's very confident and interested in everything right now as it's all very new and exciting after the set routine and same few faces he'll have seen while in racing kennels. Jester is not small furry friendly but is great with other sighthounds and just loves people!

BINGO


Date of birth: October 2015


Bingo is a very handsome white and blue greyhound boy who's not yet 2 years old. This lovely lad arrived in our care in February straight from racing and with a nasty ligament injury to his wrist. Our orthopaedic vet treated this with the use of splints and strict rest and he's really pleased with the results. There's still a slight twist to his wrist but the before and after xrays show a vast improvement and Bingo is no longer in pain and can now enjoy his walks just like any other dog. His future family will just need to ensure that Bingo doesn't go silly racing around off lead as this could cause further damage to his wrist. Bingo has been in foster with a lovely couple and their older Whippet girl Amy who Bingo absolutely adores. This sweet boy loves nothing more than cuddles on an evening while watching the TV and he'll lie down at every opportunity for tummy tickles! He's clean in the house and although he's crate trained from when he was being rested for his leg to heal he no longer needs to be crated and much prefers a comfy bed or even settee! He travels well, enjoys his walks and is good with other dogs but Bingo isn't small furry friendly and does enjoy a spot of squirrel watching from the garden as they run up and down the trees teasing him! Bingo's used to being left for short periods and has been left for up to a 6 hour period on occasions and has been fine although given his young age and curiosity Bingo does like to 'counter surf' if given the chance and will help himself to any food that's left on the worktop. He'll also pinch slippers and such like that's left within reach thinking it's a toy and he has been known to nibble these so care needs to be taken to keep items out of his way and provide him with suitable toys of his own to keep him entertained and out of mischief. Bingo is very loving and really eager to please which makes us believe he'll be quick to settle in a new home especially where he's got a doggy friend and will get lots of human attention.

ROLO


Date of birth: March 2013


Rolo is a complete cuddle monster who adores affection and always has a waggy tail. In fact his whole body wags when he's excited. He came into our care in February straight from racing and since being in our care he's happily paired up and shared his kennel first with Elsie and then when she was adopted with our current girl Eva. Rolo is often seen resting his head on her back in the kennel or when out on a walk. This gorgeous brindle boy really has come on since arriving. He's so much more relaxed now and really enjoys his walks and going out in the car or van and of course he loves cuddles and a fuss! While being assessed we've been amazed at just how laid back and well behaved Rolo is. He takes everything in his stride and has met sheep, goats, horses and even birds of prey who squawked at him yet nothing's fazed him he just wags his tail at new experiences. Rolo is so sweet with other greyhounds and likes other large breeds of dogs. He's intrigued by smaller breeds but this appears to be just that. They are unknown to him and he's curious as to what/who they are. He's a gentle soul who hasn't got a bad bone in him. Rolo has been great with all the children he's met and will happily stand for a fuss but as he's a big bouncy boy he would be better suited to older children as he may accidentally knock a younger child over in his giddiness. Rolo would really benefit from a home environment and a family to call his own. Rolo has spent his entire life in kennels so will need to be house trained. Most greyhounds are quick to pick this up and soon learn where to toilet with regular trips outside and lots of praise when they go so with a little time and patience Rolo shouldn't have any issues with this.

JACOB

Date of birth: October 2012

Our handsome lurcher Jacob is desperately seeking his forever home. We believe Jacob is a Greyhound x Pointer and therefore he has lots of energy. He can easily become bored and so will require a home where he will be kept both physically and mentally stimulated. We are looking for an experienced lurcher family who will set boundaries for Jacob with positive reward based training. He came to us from a stray pound when he wasn't claimed by his previous owners. He was rehomed but unfortunately it didn't work out. Jacob is your typical lurcher who loves the outdoor life, long walks, adventures, lots of fun based activities and mental stimulation. He loves playing fetch; his activity based toys which keep him occupied while he's in kennels and of course cuddles and treats. He's a very friendly, loving boy with a cheeky side and is good with other dogs. His best friend is another lurcher named Bailey who he loves going on long walks with. Jacob can get over excited and will sometimes jump up when he knows he is going out but this has got much better and the majority of the time he will sit while his harness is being put on. When Jacob was adopted the couple who had him by their own admission were quite lenient with setting boundaries at first as they felt that he'd had a sad life up to then so wanted to spoil him. Sadly he played on their leniency and started showing some negative behaviour, the couple wanted to persevere but following lengthy discussions it was agreed that he'd be better placed with someone more experienced. NB We offer ongoing support to all our adopters and fosterers and are happy to discuss Jacob’s past behaviour further if you are interested in adopting or fostering him. Jacob settled back into the routine of kennels without any problem and is our longest resident now since riving back just before Christmas 2016. He's not shown any negative behaviour since being back with us, he is still the same extremely loving, eager to please, happy boy we all know and love. If you feel you are suitable to offer Jacob the home he needs please get in touch for more information and we can arrange for you to meet him.

BAILEY


Date of birth: 2nd April 2014


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.
