Billy and Cairns

Remember best friends Billy and Cairns? They were sadly brought to us after their owner died and following a fantastic response to our appeal for a home for them the boys went briefly to a new home. The new owner said they were perfect, clean in the house, loving, gentle, not fazed by other dogs of any size and both walked beautifully on their leads. However after their owner returned to work the boys didn’t cope well with being left for more than a couple of hours. In light of this we are now looking for a home for them where their new family are around most of the day and are happy to work with them to build up the amount of time they are able to be left. We must stress the boys were not badly behaved when left, just stressed. This pair really are fabulous dogs and we long to find the perfect home for them together, we will never separate them.

Billy and Cairns

Sadly best friends Billy (Millwards Billy) and Cairns (Droopys Cairns) have come into kennels because their owner has died. Billy is 6 and Cairns is just 7. They have been in a home together for approx. 3 years and we understand they have lived with a smaller dog. Both boys are upbeat and have settled well given their circumstances. We have promised the boys they will be homed together so if you are looking for a pair please get in touch. They really are the sweetest dogs and they walk beautifully on their leads.

Our 2019 Christmas Appeal

Please could you help to fill Bert and Rupert’s Santa Sacks? These two lovely boys would like nothing more than another shot at home life this Christmas but time is running out and so the next best thing on their wish list would be some lovely treats to share with their friends. They would be so grateful. Treats of all kinds from Sardines in oil to Gravy Bones would be very welcome. Thank you.

Bert sporting the Tartan and kennel mate Rupert are our 2019 Christmas Appeal Boys

Greaves Needs a New Home

This is what Greaves family have to say about him.

“Due to no fault of his own and purely a change in personal circumstances, Greaves requires a new forever home”.

“Greaves has come a long way since we adopted him in September 2018. He is fully house trained and has been trained to a great level. He responds well to recall (within a closed area) and is able to react to sit, come, wait and bed! He has such a great personality and is at his best when socialising with people and able to live by his routine. This means that he will suit owners who are around for majority of the day. At times he can be nervous in new environments / with new people and can be spooked easily, however with time and commitment we believe this will improve as it has since we adopted him. He is affectionate and loves nothing more than a cuddle on the sofa as you can see by his pictures! He also loves a cuddly squeeky toy and we’re now able to play with Greaves in small doses as he can get over-excited / stimulated at times. If you have the time and love to give Greaves then you’ll be rewarded with the most fantastic, loving and loyal pet. We will forever miss Greaves but know that he’ll thrive in the right environment where his owners are able to give him what he needs and where he is centre of all attention! ”

We feel Greaves may benifit from an adult home.

Stan is looking for a home

We have had a request to help a couple who are looking to re-home their dog Stan. Stan was not adopted from the Greyhound Trust but came from another charity. The family are keen to home Stan directly from their home and not to return him to the charity. Stan is 3years old today (1st May) and is neutered, his vaccinations are said to be current. He has lived in his current home for 18 months From what the owners have told us Stan sounds adorable. However we have never met Stan and would ask anybody who may be interested in offering him a home to contact his Colchester based owners directly for further information.. Please contact Peter Brown on 07941708558 We understand a home check will be undertaken.

Urgent Appeal

Due to a change in family circumstances we are urgently seeking new homes for Revie (Westway Ranger) and Flo (Express Phantom). Revie is a beautiful laid back lad who is 10 years old. Flo who is 6 years old is a black ‘snowflake’ who is gentle and sweet. Both dogs are affectionate, good around other dogs and walk nicely on their leads. It is not imperative that they are homed together so we will separate them if we need to.Revie


Tony (Whatugonnado)

This an appeal to find a loving and understanding home for our special boy Tony.

Tony (racing name Whatugonnado) was raised at Dillymore from a tiny puppy along with his sisters Bo (already in a home) and Meadow who is still racing.  He has spent all of his life there and after a successful racing career he has retired.

He was born in July 2014  and is the most affectionate and adorable boy you could wish to meet.  He loves nothing more than a fuss and a cuddle and can often be found beside his trainer just watching him work in his office.

Whilst waiting for his forever home Tony had what appeared to be a little fit and was taken to the vet who diagnosed mild epilepsy.  Whilst waiting for his medication to take effect he had another minor fit but has not had anymore since and the vet is pleased with his current condition.  The vet has indicated that Tony will need medication for the foreseeable future.

If you work from home or are home for most of the day and are looking for a loyal and affectionate friend please consider this lovely lad.

Tony loves his Auntie Sue

An appeal for Woody (Glenpadden)

Woody who was born in May 2013 and who went home in January of this year has unfortunately and through absolutely no fault of his own has had to be returned.  In fact he has come back to us with a glowing reference from his family.  They say he is clean in the house, affectionate, fine with other dogs, ok with children, fine to be left for a reasonable amount of time and he walks nicely on his lead.  Having had a taste of home life we would very much like to find him another home as soon as we can.  He is such an affectionate lad who leans right into you for a cuddle, if you stepped back he would fall over.  If you could give Woody a home please get in touch.  Thanks.
