All at Greyhound Trust Suffolk both 4 and 2 legged, wish you a very Merry Christmas.
Thank you to John, Deb, Jeff and all the staff at Dillymore for looking after our precious hounds so well, to our little Ambassadors along with their Volunteers for the support they give promoting those Greyhounds still waiting for their forever homes, to everyone who has donated throughout the year and for donating treats at Christmas time to fill the Santa sacks and to every single one of you who support us in any way you can and for following this page.
Bless you all, we couldn’t do any of this without you.
Below is Des (Romeo Desperado) looking very festive, bless his little grey chops.
Pat Mill has been a great help to us and some of our owners whose dogs may have had minor difficulties transitioning from kennel to home life. He has recently set up a youtube channel which you may find helpful, particularly at this time of year with the inevitable scourge of fireworks. Pat has downloaded firework sounds and advises on how to help your dogs acclimatize to them. There are also other sounds such as traffic noise you may also find helpful.

We are pleased to announce the reopening of the Greyhound Trust Suffolk branch. We hope to have our website up and running shortly but in the meantime for details of our dogs looking for their forever homes please click on their photographs or refer to the National website www.greyhoundtrust.org.uk.
Occasionally some of our dogs need a little help understanding good dog manners in certain situations and around other breeds of dog. Sometimes they quite simply lack confidence in the outside world. Sometimes it’s a mixture of all of these things.This has been the case with Daphne (Olddavey’s Lady) and Mac (Droopy’s Mac). Yesterday to help them on their way to finding their forever homes they attended a doggie workshop with behaviorist Pat of Mills Mutts .It was such a worthwhile experience for them. Both were far less reactive by the end of day. Daphne walked beautifully past Inca the Visla and Mac gained so much confidence that by the end of the day he no longer felt the need to attach himself like Velcro to his Volunteer Barbara’s leg. We know there is still work to be done but we are immensely proud of the progress they made and are confident that with an experienced owner or someone who is happy to work with them, both will make lovely pets. They are such affectionate little souls we hope they each have their chance very soon.
Charlie (pictured), T.J, Daphne, Master, Mac, Finlay, George, Kieran and Jimbob wish you all a very Merry Christmas and they thank from the bottom of their great big hearts for all of the wonderful gifts you have sent them. You have really made their Christmas Day and they will be enjoying some of their lovely treats well into the New Year.
All at Greyhound Trust Suffolk would like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for the support you give us not just at Christmas but throughout the year, for following our page and most importantly for the kindness and support you show to one another via our Facebook page when one of our beautiful hounds crosses the bridge. What a lovely community. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.
