Unfortunately homing activities have ceased at the moment and the kennels are closed to visitors. We hope to still bring you news of our hounds and will be updating their profile pages if there is anything to report and will be posting videos of them going about their daily business on our Facebook page whenever possible. All at Dillymore and Greyhound Trust Suffolk wish our supporters well in what are the most challenging of circumstances and look forward to opening our branch again as soon as Government and our Head Office Welfare Team consider it safe to do so. Thank you all for your unstinting support, it is as always, very much appreciated.
Bosch (Swift Bosch) did a kind thing today. With his best friend Effie the Terrier he braved the wind and the rain to spend 5 hours looking for a poor Lurcher who has been on the loose and running scared in Stutton for the last 4 nights. His reward for being such a well behaved and helpful boy were frequent stops at a cafe for a warm and some treats followed by a sleepover at his Auntie Av’s house. No luck finding the Lurcher unfortunately but we are hoping he has found somewhere warm so he can ride out the storm.
We have had the most fantastic news this morning! Best friends and kennel mates George (Insane Brain Cell) and Rambo (Insane Rambo) are going to their forever home together next weekend. They will be sharing their home with two Labradors who they met in our paddocks today. We couldn’t be happier for these lovely lads.
Good news … Derek went home on Sunday, and today it was Lulu’s turn! Derek is now known as Rory, has enjoyed his walks, decided that he prefers the rug to his large dog bed, and played with his toys at 4am this morning before going back to sleep. Lulu is settling in well already. Be happy, with love from us all!
What an absolutely fabulous day it turned out to be for Pablo (Chilli Escobar)! This morning he was taken for a walk from East Bergholt to Flatford Mill and back where he made friends with Effie the terrier and met some children. After lunch he had some visitors at kennels who fell in love with him and have offered him his forever home. He goes home tomorrow! We are over the moon for you sweetheart, you have waited a while. xx
The Santa sacks are in place and the hounds are waiting for the big fella dressed in Red to come along and fill them. We can’t wait to see their little faces. Thank you to all who donated money or treats.
Two of our little Pumpkins went home today. First off was Minella (Young Minella) who was so excited because he had known for a couple of weeks that he was reserved. Then Bert (Burton Lodge Eske) had the surprise of his life when he was chosen, bless him who knew what joy the day would bring when he stretched yawned and opened his eyes this morning. We had already carried out a home check and so he was able to go home with his family straight away. These two lovely boys were among our longest stayers. We love them both very much and wish them well in their new homes. It was also a good day for Ozzy because he was reserved pending a home check.
What an exciting few days! Denozo went off to his forever home, we couldn’t be more pleased for this lovely gentle soul. Conner, Wesley, Tony, Bosch and Duffy were all reserved pending our usual checks and a handsome young man called Mickey arrived.
Conner (Clona Flyer) and Taylor (Bramble Taylor) had an afternoon out yesterday. They had a stroll around the Village and then went to Bypass Nurseries and the Bluebell cafe. Both boys lapped up lots of fuss and behaved really well. Conner then had a sleepover at his Volunteer’s house and was taken to a dog training class to meet some other breeds of dogs. He made friends easily which is great because when he returned to kennels this morning he had a visit from a couple who want to adopt him and they own a dog friendly cafe.
