Alfie has been happily homed as a direct result of our wonderful supporters sharing his story. We are asking for your help again – this time for Ruby and Blue.
Ruby (born in May 2007) and six-year-old Blue were returned to kennels in February after the death of their owner. They are
bonded as a pair, and after so much sadness in their lives we would love to find a home for them together.
They were traumatised when they arrived at Dillymore but they helped each other through the darkest of times and settled into kennel life. They are coping with their change of circumstances but after so long in a loving home we want so much more for them.
They have recently been in a foster home while Ruby recovered from a dental procedure in a nice quiet home, but are now back at kennels. This is what their foster carers had to say about them:
“Blue is very laid back, nothing seems to bother him. He is quite bold and inquisitive when out on walks, loves the garden and is always interested in whatever is happening – he particularly enjoys watching through the window. He is happy playing with other greyhounds but not really interested in other breeds of dog. He gets on very well with Ruby, they will lie on the same bed together, share their toys, and even share food, so do need to be re-homed together.
“Ruby is a very well behaved and gentle dog, walks well on the lead and likes her sofa and a bit of fuss, but is not demanding and is a marvellous pet. She has recovered well from having twelve teeth removed and is enjoying her food. She has a zest for life and is enjoying longer walks again. Despite her white muzzle she is quite lively, albeit in small bursts. They both are very good in the car”.
In their own words, Ruby and Blue say:
“We loved being in the foster home as we had lots of walks in the park to see the squirrels and we often went down to the beach. We don’t really like the waves very much, but it’s lovely walking on the sand. We were very well behaved in the foster home and since we are fully house trained the only mess we made were biscuit crumbs. Now we are back in the kennels and looking for a home together. We promise that we wouldn’t be ‘double trouble’ and if you asked our foster parents I am sure they would agree”.
We really do need to home this lovable pair together so please, please share their story for us. Thank you.
