Good news from Evie (Evening Free). She is settling in really well and this is what her family say about her.”She loves to play and her favorite toy is her raccoon, she eats really well and loves sardines. She loves to go out on a walk and is generally really well behaved and walks beautifully unless she sees a little white fluffy dog or a cat. We are really starting to see her personality now she is clever, sassy and very loving but can be a little thief and loves to steal trainers, vacuum attachments or the tv remote! She has well and truly stolen our hearts “Great stuff.

We have had updates from three of our lovely homed hounds.
Luka (Drumcrow Sherpa) made a New Years resolution to spend more time with his family in the sitting room. This shy lad had been spending most of his time upstairs except for play time and meal times. Well done to Luka’s family, your patience and kindness have paid off. He just needs to learn it’s ok to do wee wees on a walk now!
Danny (Listen Danny) Who was a terribly shy lad is now letting his cheeky personality shine through. He is turning into a Magpie, hoarding all manner of things in his bed. Everything from socks to remote controls. His family say they are totally in love with him.
Rumble (Romeo Rumble) Has learnt to go up and down stairs and takes ownership of the bed for his daytime snooze. He is great out on walks when he meets other dogs. His family say taking him home was the best thing they ever did.
We are so pleased to announce that today Harry (Windsor Knot) was the 100th Greyhound we have homed in 2020.
Our thanks go to Team Dillymore who allowed us to continue to operate and home our dogs even during both lock downs. We quite simply would not have homed half as many without their unstinting support or without the emotional and financial help of our wonderful supporters, that’s you guys and the racing owners. A huge thank you to you all. We love what we do but it’s all of you that make it possible.
Great news for Romeo Rumble, he went off to his forever home on Tuesday.He is settling in well and has eaten all his dinners, no surprise there Rumble has always loved his Din Dins. He has been on walks and met other dogs and has behaved well around them.

His family say he is a joy to have.Well done Rumble we do hope you will stay in touch.xx
