Lisa 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 Lisa and Stu.
It's too early to give much idea about Lisa, but so far she is a really friendly girl, with just a touch of the diva about her!
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

Jilly came into our care at the same time as Jamie, both came directly from a trainer who isn't willing to wait or pay to get his dogs into the retirement scheme linked to the track where he races. Jilly arrived very shut down and terrified of everything but as she's got to know us and realised she's safe she has really come out of her shell beautifully. She's wary of new people especially men, when she's in her kennel but once out she's everyone's friend. She loves to go walkies and is really good on her lead. Jilly is such a sweet girl, she got on so well with Jamie and since Jamie went to his new home Jilly has happily kennelled with Bramble and they're often found cuddled up together. When Jilly was neutered she went into short term foster while she recovered and was the perfect house guest, completely clean and happy to stay on her own downstairs overnight. Jilly can be nervous of new situations and is very wary of children so she needs a nice calm home without any young children or lots of comings and goings which would unsettle her. Jilly would benefit from a home with another dog or where someone is home most of the time so she's not on her own for long periods.

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.
