Taylor (Bramble Taylor) is a good-natured five year old boy in need of a few manners. We will be working with him to teach him the basics – his name, how to take treats, how to respond to commands while walking on the lead. Other than that, he is a friendly, happy boy and we think he will learn quickly!
Update 01/11/19 What a difference a few weeks makes. Taylor has been learning good manners and was absolutely perfect when he was taken out and about around the village yesterday. He visited a garden centre and a cafe and behaved perfectly making friends with everyone he met. What a lovely affectionate boy he is.
Update 03/01/2020 Taylor joined us for our New Years Day walk at Alton Water. He had a great time but was a bit over excited around a small dog so we think he would be great as an only dog with an experienced owner. In our experience he is great with other Greyhounds Please don’t be put off of Taylor because of his current aversion to small dogs, he is a quick learner and an experienced owner with patience may well be able to work through this with him. We would be more than happy to contribute towards the cost of socialization classes should that be necessary. Taylor has so much to offer, he really is one of the most affectionate dogs in the kennel. We all adore him.
Taylor (Bramble Taylor) recently had a sleepover at his Volunteers house. This is what she had to say about him.
“Taylor has a bouncy & playful side to his personality, which is fabulous to see, such a happy and contented boy.”
“Interestingly, in the park, we met a little girl Saluki/whippet cross, whom Taylor greeted like a fellow ‘greyhound’ and was not particularly interested in. However, Taylor was very interested, intrigued, curious and possibly perplexed by and certainly excited about the small, fluffy, strange shaped, ‘greyhounds’. I think he just wants to play and interact with them, but he isn’t sure how to or quite what to make of them. If he could meet and socialise with a few little doggies, I think he would get over this and discover that he could play nicely with them.”
“I just love Taylor’s affectionate, bright, playful and excitable, bouncy personality. Taylor is very cuddly and very happy to be embraced in his humans arms and have a little snuggle”
Is there anybody out there who could offer this fun loving and affectionate boy a forever home? We would be happy to provide the support of our dog trainer to advise on his socialisation with small or fluffy breeds. While he waits we aim to take him to a local dog training class.

All greyhounds are neutered, have had their teeth cleaned and are inoculated. They each leave us with a new coat, collar and lead, muzzle and their worming and flea treatments up to date.. They are all microchipped, details are transferred to the new owner. They also have four weeks free Petplan insurance.
