Alfie has a new home!

Fantastic news!  Alfie has a new home.  Here’s what he has to say about it.

Hi Everybody, All my dreams have come true.  I have a new family to love and care for me.  I can’t tell you just how happy I am. Hopefully once I am settled they will take a  photo of me  and you can see me all happy and back to my old self.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love and best wishes you have sent to me following my appeal.  I hope my friends Ruby and Blue will be as lucky as me.
Love Alfie xx

The Great Global Greyhound Walk

Thank you to everybody who came along and supported our walk at Woodbridge yesterday.  What a fantastic turn out! 76 greyhounds / lurchers and five of their friends.  Kennel dogs Paddy and Jan came along and enjoyed themselves too.  Read all about them on their profile pages on our homeless hounds page.

An update from Alfie

I don’t know if I was dreaming this or if I really heard my Uncle Jeff say “Alfie only has one more sleep before he has a visit from the family who might like to take him home” One more sleep!  I can’t sleep!  Somebody brush my coat, get me a smart collar, give me a pedicure, anything that will make me more handsome.  I am so excited .  Please let it be true and not just a dream.  Fingers crossed for me please my lovely friends.

Love Alfie xx

Alfie’s Story (in his own words)

My name is Alfie.  I am an eight year old black greyhound who has been in a home since December 2010. I wasn’t a very good racer so after just 12 races it was time for me to look for a home.  Within two months I was chosen by a lovely family.  Then after five and a half splendid years in a home of my own, my owners became ill and couldn’t look after me anymore, so I was returned to kennels at the end of may amidst much heartbreak.

I am well looked after here at Dillymore – I have a comfy bed, plenty of food and I can play in the paddocks everyday, but I don’t feel like playing because after so long in a home all I want is is a human of my own.  I suppose I am a bit depressed without my own people to look after me.  The people here give me as much love and attention as they can, but it’s not the same and I crave more love.

I am a good boy, a very faithful greyhound and I know how to behave in a home.  I am doing my best to stay positive but it is hard sometimes.   My greatest wish is that I find some special humans soon.

Thanks for reading my story, please share it with anybody you think might be able to help.

Love Alfie.

Lee and Moody go to a tea party

Kennel dogs Lee and Moody had a fabulous time at Gladwells of Copdock today when they joined several other breeds of dogs and their owners for a doggy tea party.
Both behaved extremely well and thoughtfully shared the big bags of treats they were given with their kennel mates back at Dillymore.

 

Lee gets a glowing report

Would you like to know a little more about Lee?  He has had a glowing report from his foster Mum who looked after him while he recovered from his ‘Man op’  Do take a look at him and read all about it on our Homeless Hounds page. Lee is now back at Dillymore just waiting for that special someone to take him home.

Suffolk Show (Day 2)

AnotaIMG_6014a - Copy (Large)her 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.

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.
