Urgent appeal for Russo

Due to a change in circumstances and health issues of his owner, we need to find a new home for Russo. He’s a nine year old, relaxed boy who is used to walking beside a wheelchair, never pulls on his lead and is fabulous with children. We would prefer him to go straight into a new home rather than back to our already full kennels. Can anybody help?

Des and Eske go home

Happy news for Des and Eske who both went home yesterday. Both are special boys – Des was returned to us and Eske had been waiting for such a long time for a home of his own – be happy fellas!

Greaves

We are very pleased to be able to say that Greaves is settling brilliantly into his new home. He has a new greyhound friend called Major to help him adjust (and in turn he’s helping Major who lost his old greyhound friend recently), and his new family report that he is a wonderful, laid back boy. 

Thank you very much to all those who helped in finding him a home through sharing his story, and huge thanks to his new family for travelling to meet him and then pick him up. Be happy, Greaves!

Scarlet – home already!

Yesterday we posted that Scarlet was available for homing. Well, this is her today – she is now known as Meadow, has gone home with the lovely Wilf and his family, and is already making herself very much at home. Her new owner tells us that both dogs are currently sound asleep having enjoyed a race in the paddock and wagged themselves out!

Training!

New volunteer Barbara is going to be helping us with training some of our greyhounds that need a little extra help to find their forever homes. Today she worked with Bosch while Avril worked with Blink. Then we treated all the greyhounds for worms and fleas – they didn’t mind at all, they all got sausages. Thank you Barbara!

Marvin and Pippa

Marvin and Pippa went home today, and we’re sure they’ll be very happy with Paul, who has previously homed three greyhounds from us. Hopefully we’ll see them on a walk soon…

Peg

Peg went home on Friday and is settling into her new home very nicely. She’s taken all the new experiences, including meeting other breeds of dogs in her stride, and was very quick to find the sofa.

Tendring Show

Our lovely hounds were kept very busy at the Tendring show today! In the morning, kennel dogs Christy, Jasper and Duffy came along as ambassadors. Thanks to all volunteers for their help, and for everybody who made donations or just stopped by to say hello. More photos available on our facebook page.
