Kitty is a sweet 2 year old who came into our care as an emergency from an allotment where she was being kept. On first sight of Kitty when we went to pick her up we could see just how terrified she was and we were told because she's terrified of everything she wasn't raced - as they would have never caught her again!
It's been baby steps at Kitty's pace to gain her confidence and the other dogs have really helped her in coming round and learning to trust us. She is now a happy bouncy playful little girl with the people she knows and trusts but new people and situations are still scary so Kitty requires lots of ongoing patience and encouragement.
We have no doubt Kitty would flourish in the right home but due to her nervousness any potential adopters would need to visit Kitty regularly to gain her trust prior to her going into their home. Upon adoption Kitty will need plenty of time and patience to settle and come out of her shell. Because of how scared and skittish she is, Kitty will only be homed to adult only households or families with older, dog savvy children. Kitty will also require a home where there is a confident resident dog to guide her.

This 9 year old lady came into our care after 5 years in a home from a private re-home. We were asked to take her following the birth of a new baby and the family no longer wanting her. Sadly Megan came into our care in a really neglected condition and clearly hadn't been loved or even had her basic care needs met. With vet care, good food and lots of tlc Megan came on in leaps and bounds and soon went to a really good home where she blossomed further. Sadly when the owners were out one day Megan and their other female Greyhound had an altercation and so Megan had to be returned. No one knew what happened but after conversations with the couple since the incident we've established that Megan has sleep startle and so we, and they believe Megan must have been asleep when she was startled leading to an altercation when the other Greyhound reacted to her and this unfortunately escalated. Megan has been fine with all the other dogs since her return. Megan is so loving towards people but she appears uncomfortable around children so won't be rehomed with any children under 13. She's good with other dogs but due to her sleep startle extra care would need to be taken and if there was another dog it would need to be a laid back non reactive dog.

Sophie is the most gentle, kind natured pup. She came into our care after her previous owner no longer wanted her, this was of no fault to Sophie. We believe Sophie has some Collie in her, she's very clever and eager to learn. She's fantastic with dogs of all shapes and sizes, young and old alike. She is currently in foster and lives happily alongside various other dogs aswell as cats and small furries and an 11 year old child. Sophie adores children! Her whole body wiggles when she sees small people and she just wants to play. She's very respectful of the cats and could definitely live in a home with cats.
Sophie needs a home where she isn't left for long periods of time, with people willing to continue her training and with canine company. She is quite high energy compared to the Greys but with a couple of decent walks a day and some training to mentally stimulate her and tire her out, she's a fairly laid back girl and loves a cuddle and a snooze.

Cookie came into our care straight from racing and very quickly found a home. Unfortunately the other dog didn't accept Cookie within the home and after an incident where Cookie was bit on her side it was decided it'd be in both dogs best interests for her to return to our care. Cookie went into foster shortly after her return and as she hadn't been used to being left in her previous home Cookie initially suffered with separation anxiety but she quickly got used to being left for short periods which was built up and Cookie is now completely fine to be left for upto 4 hours at a time and is calm and settled as her fosterers leave the house, clean while they're out and happy to greet them on their return. Cookie is also good through the night and will ask if she needs to go out. Cookie enjoys free run of the downstairs of her foster home and hasn't attempted to venture upstairs. She is sharing a home with two other greyhounds - a boy and a girl and has adapted really well to the family's routine. She has a calm and confident nature and is very respectful of the other dogs’ personal space, Cookie was quickly accepted into the home by the other dogs and is often snuggled up to one of them on the sofa.
She loves to snuggle up with her fosterers and she will playfully roach next to them to demand lots of belly rubs and showing off her big toothy grin!
Cookie enjoys her walks and is good on the lead. She can be reactive when she sees cats or squirrels but has been good meeting other dogs and people. Cookie especially enjoys human company and loves meeting new people, she has been fine around children too although she isn't currently living with children.
Cookie is a sweet, confident and fun loving girl who will bring a lot of joy to her forever family.
