We have an update on Pud now called Lily. Pud was homed before we even had a chance to photograph her let alone put her on the website Jose who we homed last December came calling for a Lady friend. Just by chance Pud was being walked, Jose went over to say hello and that was that. They had a few dates before Pud went home with him and all is going well. Pud has settled in nicely and as you can see it didn’t take her long to join Jose on the sofa!

Fantastic news! Following our appeal for a home for 10 year old Revie we are pleased to say he has gone to his forever home today. Thank you to everyone who shared his appeal on Facebook and sent him their best wishes. A massive thank you to his new family for giving this lovely old timer a home. Good luck Revie sweetheart we are over the moon for you.xxx
It’s been another busy week at kennels. Grace went home, Blue came back (he would prefer a family that doesn’t work full time) Chilli didn’t go home so is available again, Dear old Revie had a couple of viewers, Leo went for a walk at Alton Water and we held a meet and greet session at the Co-op in Hadleigh with kennel dogs Seb and Fabia. Both boys were so well behaved and made a good impression on local MP James Cartlidge who visited our stand. Thanks to our Greyhound Ambassadors Spring, Troy, Roy, Toby and Teddy, to the staff and management of the Co-op and to the generous public who gave donations and took the time to chat to us and our dogs.

Dear old Revie is hoping somebody will offer him a forever home for Christmas. Revie is 10 years old and has been returned along with his friend Flo because of a change in family circumstances. He is pleased that Flo has found a new forever family but he is longing to be part of a loving family himself once more. He is such a happy chap in spite of the fact he has been through a heart breaking time. If you could offer Revie another chance of happiness please get in touch.
The sun shone for us today on our September walk at Shotley. 48 Greyhounds and their companions gathered for a stroll along the river and through the village. Kennel mates Bambi and Leo joined us and were so well behaved. Many thanks to Lynn and Darcy the retriever for helping to lead the walk and to The Shipwreck for their hospitality.
Yesterday we said a fond farewell to the lovely Java as he went off to his forever home. We shall miss his cheerful cheerful little face and even his ‘talking’ lol around kennels. Have a happy retirement Java we all love you very much.
Just a reminder that we will be holding our September walk this coming Sunday (30th). Please meet opposite the Shipwreck bar / restaurant Shotley Marina at 11am. The Shipwreck will be open for drinks and bar food after the walk. Please see What’s on section for full details
A busy weekend at kennels. We were visited by Toosie Beannie and My Mate Max who came to have their nails clipped. Blink who was reserved on Thursday had a visit from his new family and Cookie was given the good news that she has been reserved subject to a home check. On top of all that we welcomed Des (Romeo Desperado) to our happy band of retired dogs and Sam went off to start his new life with his forever family.
Go to our homeless-hounds page to meet Des, our latest boy looking for his forever home.
Yesterday we bid a fond farewell to Conrad. He was an absolute pleasure to have here at kennels and we wish him well in his new role as a much loved family pet.
