Wow! What a day! We were rushed off our feet talking about our greyhounds with potential new owners and old friends. The sun shone, and the steady stream of visitors to our stall did not stop all day.
Kennel dogs Puffa, who got through to the last 14 in the very large Best Rescue class is seen here exhausted after her busy day. Queenie had a lovely day away from kennels – she showed us that she wants to friends with everybody and worked hard to make sure that everybody knows how amazing greyhounds are all day, she didn’t want to miss out on anything.
As usual, more photos available on our facebook page.
We are looking for a very special home for Messi, he has just been returned to kennels for the second time. Full details are on his page here.
It is with regret we announce that Mark and Dawn Stiff have resigned from their roles with Greyhound Homer.
We will always be grateful for all the fantastic hard work they have both put in during their time with us, going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the very best outcomes for our homeless hounds.
We hope they enjoy their new found leisure time and wish them all the very best for the future.
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.
Another cold day at the Suffolk Show – in previous years we had packed sunglasses and sunscreen, this year was all about layers, hot chocolate and preventing things from blowing around in the wind. It didn’t stop kennel dogs Steel and Kat from having a fantastic day out though! They were both very well behaved all day, lapping up attention and enjoying meeting humans and other dogs alike.
Here’s beautiful Kat having a rest towards the end of a busy day. She is a very loving girl, and wants to be friends with everybody.
Below – here’s Steel relaxing and enjoying all the attention that a handsome, laid back boy deserves. He was a little overwhelmed at the start of the day but soon relaxed.
Let’s hope that Steel and Kat’s efforts find them homes, along with many homes for their friends in kennels.
Hope you like it!
All the information contained in the old website has been included here, and we’ve added a “Homing Process” page. We will be making further improvements and additions over the coming months.
The main change is the addition of this blog – we will be posting here regularly about greyhounds we’ve homed, walks, events, and anything else that takes our fancy.
Please let us know if you have anything to contribute or any comments!
