Borwick Dasher

We have had news of Dash (Borwick Dasher) who we homed last year. He is so enjoying his retirement .Here is what his adoring family say about him.

“He really has been the perfect addiction to our family, and couldn’t imagine life without him.
Although a quiet boy, he is so bouncy and playful!He loves his country side walks, playing with his numerous toys that have taken over the house 🤣 and especially loves crashing out in the evenings for a family movie!
Everyone has loved him that’s met him, he’s so inviting to new people, even when we have taken him to vet appointments love him, but that’s because he’s a flirt and they pamper him 🤣
I can’t recommend re-homing a greyhound more to people! They are so loving and caring dogs, that truly make a house a home.”What a lovely outcome for Dasher. We remember him well at kennels for his love of food and big cuddles”.



Whizzy Bling

We have had news of Whizzy Bling. Whizzy Bling is now called Bet and has really been living life to the full since moving to Bolton. Here is what her adoring family say about her.
“Since coming home we have renamed her Bet. She knows her name and calmly comes back when she is called.Bet loves her daily walks around the local parks and is often stopped by other dog walkers as they admirer her.
Bet has a busy life in Bolton playing with her new best mate poppy in the garden and often sharing a bed together. Grandchildren love to visit Bet and play for hours in the garden.
Bet enjoyed her recent trip to London taking in the sights and the sounds. In the 5 days we had in London we walked a total of 52 miles! Both poppy and Bet slept soundly at nights (as did we). Luckily the weather was wonderful and spent the time exploring London on foot. Seeing Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, Kensington Palace, Hyde Park and the changing of the guard.
With the country seemingly coming out of the Covid pandemic a new year trip to the lake district has been booked. Lots of walk, treats , pubs and sleep.Bet has been perfect and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect dog”
What lovely news, enjoy the Lake District Bet.

News of Drumalee Teddy

We have had news of Teddy (Drumalee Teddy). This is what his adoring family have to say about him.
” We truly could not love him more. He is just the most perfect dog. He’s properly settled in now – he absolutely adores zoomies (especially with his favourite soft toy), enjoys his walkies (he is now off the lead very happily!) and loves lots of cuddles, kisses and treats.
We’ve taken him on lots of adventures and everyone says how beautiful he is everywhere we go! He’s such a happy boy, so loving and playful, and we couldn’t imagine life without him.”Lovely news bless him.

She has discovered stairs but only how to climb up and not down, bless her she had to be carried back down in a blanket! She has also realised just how beautiful she is having discovered a mirror she spends ages admiring her image.


Mover moves on

We are so pleased to tell you that following the heartbreak of loosing their beloved Julie (Liberal Julie) Julie’s family have been to kennels today with Beano (Burgess Beano) and taken home Mover (Kingsmill Mover).
Beano was so lost without Julie.
Mover is probably one of the sweetest but most shy little dogs we have ever known but Beano and family liked her and she liked them.
Thank you Beano and family for seeing beyond Mover’s shy start and giving her the lovely home she so richly deserves and in which we know she can thrive.


Des and Rumble reunited

Brothers Romeo Desperado (Black) and Romeo Rumble were reunited at kennels this morning. They are half bothers sharing the same mummy Fabulous Pin. Both boys got along well. Des was off to spend the weekend with his best friend Ness and Rumble had popped in for a pedicure and some food.

Brian (War Admiral)

We have had news of recently homed Brian. This is what his family have said about him.
Here is Brian’s report after almost a week-> I have never seen a greyhound settle down so quickly as Brian. We all love him and he’s such a friendly soul. And what a character… so confident, he loves playing with his toys and sometimes taking things that are not his (my shoes and my wife’s dressing gown) on to his bed. He is very smart and is a bit of a copy-cat when watching our other greyhound Lily go about. He can be quite vocal and had something to say when the window cleaner visited today, all part of his character. Brian enjoys his walks, treats and cuddles. On Sunday evening, he down laid in front of the oven to keep a close eye on the chicken. I would say that kitchen is definitely his favourite place, especially the fridge. Finally, we couldn’t ask for more in a hound, he’s absolutely brilliant and a great brother to Lily.
So pleased to hear Brian has settled in so well.
