EMILY


Date of birth: 15th July 2014


We were first alerted to these 2 (Emily right) who were described as nervous after offering space to some other dogs from the same kennels. See Howard on our current boys page.

The other dogs were only pups but arrived absolutely petrified and we took these 2 just a couple of days later. They had been subjected to the lack of care for much longer and as a result it was much harder to gain their trust and help them overcome their fear of the world and everyone in it. Out of their kennel they would freeze if anyone went near them while in their kennel they would back away till they could no more.

So sad to see their fear and heart-breaking to think how they had been treated to be so scared of everyone. They soon got into our routine and learned when it was their turn to be fed or go out. 

It's been a long slow process to gain their trust and even now we haven't fully. They still have their skittish periods, shy away and freeze when they are scared but they've come such a long way and are a far cry from when they arrived. Howard and Emily now both have good appetites, they get so excited especially at breakfast time and they love their walks and again get excited to get ready to go out.

Emily is at her happiest laid in the safety of her kennel after being fed and is often found roaching. Howard loves mealtimes but both love each other more than anything and Howard often lays with his head on Emily, they usually lay cuddled up together. Following all they've been through, their close bond and how they take confidence from each other in different situations they need to be rehomed together and we won't split them up.

Finding someone to adopt 2 dogs together is always difficult. Finding a special home for 2 nervous black greyhounds isn't going to be easy but these 2 really can't be split up and will stay with us until their perfect home is found however long that takes.

With how nervous this pair are they need a home without children or any young visiting children. They are good with other greyhounds and so could live with other dogs who would be happy to accept a bonded pair however they are not suitable to live with small dogs/cats or other small pets.

AMY


Date of birth: July 2018.


Amy (right) and Sheldon (see Sheldon on our current boys page) came into our care along with their litter sister Bernie when they were just 12 months old. The whole litter had been destined for racing but due to the kennel hand who owned them leaving the trainers kennels he needed to 'get rid' of them by the following day.

They arrived in an horrendous physical condition but even worse, they were mentally and emotionally scarred. Pups should be happy, bouncy carefree bundles of joy. These 3 were terrified of everything and everyone and just wanted to run away and hide.

After lots of love, patience and encouragement they started to come out of their shells in time and show us their cheeky sides. Sheldon and Amy need to be rehomed together. Amy is the least confident of new people and out and about and although Sheldon is confident he's completely different if he's split up from Amy and we feel the 2 need to stay together. They could be rehomed with other dogs but no small furries.

Like all pups Amy and Sheldon aren't going to be easy additions at first and need a patient family to teach them what's expected. They are currently 15 months old but after spending their whole lives in kennels and with the majority of their life not being a nice experience they are going to require housetraining and ongoing training, lead work and socialisation. We are looking for a home where they won't be left for long periods.

Amy and Sheldon love each other and often cuddle up. Even when they are stood or out on a walk they will often rest their heads on each other giving each other comfort. They get very excited for their walks, Sheldon likes to lead the way and can pull if he's not in front. Amy likes to go out but is very reserved and takes confidence from her brother. Both have a good appetite after arriving very underweight but are separated to eat as Sheldon is quicker and would finish Amy's food and Amy would let him!


BERNIE


Date of birth: July 2018.


Bernie came into our care along with her litter sister Amy and litter brother Sheldon at just 12 months old. The whole litter had been destined for racing but due to the kennel hand who owned them leaving the trainers kennels he needed to 'get rid' of them by the following day.

They arrived in an horrendous physical condition but even worse, they were mentally and emotionally scarred. Pups should be happy, bouncy carefree bundles of joy. These 3 were terrified of everything and everyone and just wanted to run away and hide.

After lots of love, patience and encouragement they started to come out of their shells in time and show us their cheeky sides.

Bernie is the most confident and is looking for a home with a resident dog who will guide her and be her playmate.


Like all pups Bernie isn't going to be an easy addition at first and needs a patient family to teach her what's expected of her. Bernie is currently 15 months old but has spent her whole life in kennels and the majority of her life hasn't been pleasant so she is going to require housetraining and ongoing training, lead work and socialisation. We are looking for a home where she won’t be left for long periods.

Bernie has shown no interest when she met a cat so is potentially cat trainable. She has been great with children living with them in a foster home following being neutered.

Bernie had a really happy waggy tail which sadly split and wouldn't heal. Despite every effort of bandaging it under veterinary advice, her tail unfortunately got a nasty infection and has had to be amputated. Bernie is doing well following this though and will make a full recovery.

TALLULAH


Date of birth: 26th Dec 2018


Tallulah is still only a pup, she turned one at Christmas. She's a little bull lurcher girl, we believe Whippet x Staffie. She's not had the best start in life, her owner wasn't allowed to keep pets so kept her in his car for a while when his landlord found out before passing her on to a lady he met. We were alerted to her but by then she had been put in boarding kennels after spending a week in a home.

She arrived in our care very confused after being passed from pillar to post. She soon came out of her shell and is a lovely high energy pup. She's got crazy big ears and a gorgeous wrinkled head when they stick up which they do most of the time!

Tallulah is a high energy girl who is very food and toy focused and eager to please. She learns quickly but needs someone with patience to continue her ongoing training and set the boundaries she needs. Tallulah went into foster but unfortunately this didn't work out. Tallulah was walked with other dogs who were off lead and obviously wanted to play so was lunging on her lead to run and join them. This was frustrating for her and unfair on the other dogs so she was returned.

We were told that Tallulah was worked prior to coming to us so care will need to be taken as with all sighthounds due to their chase instinct. Tallulah isn't suitable to live with cats or other small furries but has been brilliant with all the dogs she's met although not all dogs appreciate how full on she is when she greets them with a big full on kiss! Tallulah needs a very secure garden but that said she can jump ridiculous heights so needs a family who will not let her out unattended as she will try to escape if she's no one to focus on. She would really benefit from further training and activities to keep her stimulated and mentally occupied. Tallulah loves everyone but is a bouncy girl so for that reason wouldn't be suitable with children who aren't confident around dogs. Tallulah requires a home where she won't be left for long periods as she showed signs of separation anxiety when left longer than a couple of hours when in foster.

PENNY


Date of birth: 10th September 2015


Penny arrived into our care with a broken hock sustained while racing. Sadly Penny's recovery hasn't been straight forward and she's still got a way to go before she's fully recovered and available for adoption.

BLITZEN


Date of birth:  Estimated Summer 2018.


Blitzen arrived into our care from a pound after being found straying with a badly broken wrist. X-rays showed all of her metacarpals were broke which indicates a blunt trauma such as a kick. Blitzen has since had a partial carpal arthrodesis and is recovering in foster. Her leg needs to be splinted for 8 weeks following her operation and so she isn't currently available for adoption.


Now reserved by her fosterers!
