Greyhounds looking for homes

new arrivals/returns will be placed at the end of the list)  

Rocky is 5yrs old and a lovely boy who has been in a home, but sadly been returned. He is used to the home environment, house trained and
lived with children. However, he will need socialisation around other breeds and someone who is used to greyhounds/larger breeds.  Could you give Rocky another chance?

Red is 5years old and came to us with Ash (who has now found a home!) and is confident and happy.  He is a cuddly boy who looks slightly older than his years and therefore should also not be overlooked.  He is clean in his kennel and is enjoying the comforts of the blankets. If you can offer Red his special home, do let us know!

Sylvie is 2yrs old and a dear little dog who is nervous at the moment, but hopefully will not take long to come round once she gets to know us.  She is not suited to be homed with young children as a result of her nerves, but will be hoping for a special home that can take her needs into account and work with her until she finds her feet. We will be waiting for the right home for Sylvie.  Sylvie is fine around little dogs and really coming out of her shell.  She will still need someone who understands her particular reactions to things, but she will get there with patience and care.

Zebo is 2yrs old and a little nervous until he gets to know you.  He walks very nicely on the lead, is gentle and calm and really enjoys his food.  He is bound to come out of his shell quickly and we hope the loving home he deserves is just around the corner!

Christopher is 5yrs old and a beautiful boy who has been in a home before.  He would be best suited without young children, but will be fine around other breeds given the usual initial care.  He is house-trained, used to the home environment and came with his own wardrobe (he has to wear HIS coat as he takes all others off!). He has been very well cared for and hopes a warm, comfy bed will be awaiting him in a special home very quickly.

Fargo is 3yrs old and is a lovely boy who is very good in the car, has lived with both male and female greyhounds and loves his food.  He is house-trained, used to the home environment, but has sadly been returned because he needs some socialisation around other very small breeds.  He is sometimes very good and happy to be with smaller dogs; and, at other times, needs to know they are not something to chase.  It won't take him long to understand! He would really love another home quickly as he is used to being at home and doesn't want to be shut up in a kennel for a long time.

Blue is 5yrs old and a very friendly boy who is outgoing, confident and loves a cuddle.  He is so enthusiastic to go out that he bounces around whilst you get the lead on him, but once he is out and about, he is very easy to handle on the lead and will make a great addition to any home.  He loves his food, is clean in his kennel and would really appreciate a comfortable sofa to call his own!  However, there are no prizes for guessing what colour he is!  Blue had a home for 5 days and settled very well - calm, good with other breeds and clean indoors; but is being returned after a change of circumstances for his adopters. Could you offer Blue another chance? Blue is currently reserved!

Sparky is 5yrs old and a happy soul who was known as "stumpy" to his trainer because of his short tail!  This only adds to his character and makes him unique!  He loves his food, should be fine around other breeds with the usual initial care and loves the other greyhounds too. Sparky is currently reserved!

Stanley is 7yrs old and a lovely gentle boy who happily shares his kennel with the female greyhounds and loves a cuddle.  He seems to have waited a while before getting into the rehoming kennels so it would be lovely if he could go to a loving home quickly and not have to wait too long with us before his own sofa comes along!

Foxy is 3yrs old and a vibrant character who happily shares with another dog.  She will also be tested around other breeds as soon as possible and loves her food.  She is easy to handle on the lead and spotlessly clean in her kennel.

Freddie is 3yrs old and came in with Foxy.  He is a calm and confident chap who is happy to share with other greyhounds and will be taken on a 'town trip' to be tested away from the kennel environment.  He is a lovely boy who should not be overlooked as 'another black dog'.  We think black is best! He is also easy to handle on the lead and spotlessly clean in his kennel.

Kai is 3yrs old and arrived with Vic.  He is a gentle soul who is also on the large side! He will be fine around other breeds as long as the usual initial care is taken.  He is spotlessly clean in his kennel and would love to fall on his paws in a home environment.  He ca be a little anxious in new situations, but it does not take him long to get used to everything.

Maddie is 3yrs old and a dear little soul who was very nervous when she first came in but will gradually come out of her shell as she gets to know you.  She would be best suited to going home with another dog as once paired up with a friend (Jacko), she followed his example and wagged her tail.  As time has progressed, she is really starting to trust and wags her tail once she gets to know you.

Joe is 2yrs old (3yrs in June) and has sadly been returned after much soul searching.  He was perfect indoors, loves his food and walks nicely on the lead.  He will make a wonderful addition to any home, but he would not be suited to someone who goes out to work.  Therefore, if you are retired or work from home, he would be ideal! He can live happily with another greyhound and really deserves a loving home quickly so he is not stuck in kennels for too long.

Kane is 3yrs old and a strikingly handsome chap with crinkly ears who also seems a very gentle and loving fellow.  He will make a great addition to any home.  He will also be fine around smaller breeds (given the usual initial sensible introductions!)

Tina is 4yrs old and a vibrant soul who loves a cuddle and is also well behaved around other breeds given the usual initial precautions.  She is slightly strong on the lead but this will soon decrease as she gets used to going out and about more often. She is spotlessly clean in her kennel and is happily sharing with Kane.

Scarlett is 4yrs old and although she was slightly hesitant when she first came into us at Whittingham, she quickly came out of her shell and happily comes in and out.  She is a dear little girl who loves a cuddle and really deserves a loving home to call her own.  She has been taken 'down to the town' to assess her interaction with other breeds (and her reaction away from kennels) and was found to be good with other breeds (again, given the usual common sense at initial introductions).

Patsy is 2yrs old and a cheerful girl who loves a game in the paddock and happily shares with the other dogs.  She didn't have much racing (cleverly opting to get into the homing kennels more quickly!) and is gentle and affectionate.  She will make a great addition to any home and will be tested around smaller breeds as soon as possible.

Hattie is a dear little soul who can be nervous initially but soon settles down and looks to you for reassurance.  She will be a wonderful addition to any home.  She came into us from Ireland after she did not want to chase and will thrive in a home environment.  She loves her food and relishes any affection shown to her.

Daisy is 4yrs old and another very lovely girl who rolls over to have her tummy rubbed when you go into her kennel.  She was a little apprehensive at first, but this soon disappeared once she realised she was going out for walks and having plenty of cuddles.  She would love a home of her own and is spotlessly clean in kennels.  Could you offer this special girl a special home? 

Gizmo is a young chap who would love a caring home.  He is very nervous at the moment so would ideally be homed with another dog to help reassure him and bring him out of his shell.  He is sharing with Patsy and her confidence is rubbing off on him.  He began to trust the staff after just a few hours so we are sure that he will soon start to trust others and sell himself as the great boy he is!  He has not raced and deserves someone who has the initial patience needed to help him overcome his anxiety.  He is a gentle soul who just needs reassurance.

Chief is a handsome boy who came in with Molly (below).  He should not be overlooked as he is a happy, outgoing chap who was excited to come into Whittingham so should take life beyond kennels as a big adventure.  He loves everyone and his tail hasn't stopped wagging. He is even wagging his tail in his photograph (despite being tied to the door to keep him still!).  He is happily sharing with Molly so will be fine as an only dog or with the company of other greyhounds.  He will be tested with other breeds as soon as possible.

Molly is a brindle girl who came in with Chief.  She is also outgoing and friendly and will make a great addition to any home.  She loves being with you and is very affectionate.  Could you be the lucky one to offer Molly or one of the other greyhounds a loving home?

Kevin is a petite boy who loves to play with a ball and is very affectionate.  (photo and further description to come!)
