This week we were asked to take another urgent girl who was no longer of use to race. With thanks to Nicola this pretty girl made it safely to us on Wednesday. Lucy and Darren have named her Beryl. Beryl is a little nervous but nothing compared to our recent intakes who have been very scared. We look forward to getting to know her better. Welcome to GRSY Beryl x
Welcome to GRSY to Jilly, safe now. Jilly is terrified of everything, more information to follow once we've assessed her.

Darcey previously called Pumpkin arrived in our care straight from racing along with her pal who she went on to be adopted with. Both Greyhounds settled really well within the home with their new owner's and their existing dog, a JRT. Darcey had lived there for 5 months when out of the blue she went for the Jack Russell during play. This was a one off and very out of character but due to the extent of the injury and to prevent any further incidents Darcey came back into our care that evening. On picking her up we were shown a video taken by their dog walker who was encouraging Darcey (on lead) to run after Ella who was running off lead. Darcey also had a large teddy which she would 'rag about'. There's no excuses for what Darcey did. Sadly we feel the incident was a tragic accident following her chase instinct being unintentionally sparked. Luckily Ella is fine and has made a full recovery. We haven't witnessed any aggression or cause for concern whatsoever since having Darcey back but for obvious reasons we won't rehome her with any small dogs again.
Darcey is great with other greyhounds, is used to living in a home and has been left while her owners were at work, broken up with visits from the dog walker. Darcey's also been well socialised, she's used to traffic, can do stairs and she's been to training classes where she did really well.
Darcey is a sweet natured girl who's settled back into the routine of kennels. She's always eager to get any attention and loves going out for her walks. Darcey would make a lovely addition to a home without small dogs and where there are no young children.

Eva is 3 years old and recently came into our care straight from racing. She's a friendly girl who looks to be in good condition with a beautiful black coat and no sign of any injuries. We've kennelled Eva with Rolo and the two are getting on great. They're so sweet together and are often seen cuddled up with their heads rested on each others' neck or back.
Eva walks lovely on her lead and is getting used to life outside the strict structure of racing kennels. As she's settled in our care she's really relaxed and now gets excited to see us and really enjoys human attention. She's got used to seeing other breeds of dogs, going nice walks and she's learnt she doesn't have to chase. This little lady is lovely and calm when she's out, she takes everything in her stride and is happy around traffic, other dogs, unknown people and new places. Eva can't wait to find the home she so deserves and will make a great addition to a lucky family.
