Greyhounds looking for homes

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

Red is 7 years old 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, house-trained at home (he went home with one of our staff for the weekend to see how he behaved at home) and enjoys the comforts of the blankets. If you can offer Red his special home, do let us know!  Red had a three month trip to Cambridgeshire where he was involved in a scheme organised by the Greyhound Trust in which prisoners look after three greyhounds.  He thrived in their care and was in beautiful condition on his return to us.  He really hopes his special home is round the corner now he is back, especially as the two other 'prison-visit' dogs have now found their special places.

Chief is 4yrs old and a handsome boy who came in with Molly (who has found a home).  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 will be fine as an only dog or with the company of other greyhounds.  He will need careful handling around other breeds until he gets to know them.

Merlin is 4yrs old and a gloriously large and cuddly greyhound.  He loves everyone and wants to give you a big hug!  He is like a big teddy bear and shares his bed with Ruby.  Whoever adopts Merlin will be very lucky indeed.  His size shouldn't put you off as often the bigger dogs are even more gentle!

Mia is a very gentle girl who walks nicely on the lead and will be a great addition to any home. Mia has found a home!

Ash is a very affectionate boy who loves a cuddle.  He is getting to know everyone and everything and would love a comfortable home to enjoy life beyond kennels.

Ronnie is a happy soul who also loves affection and would thrive in the home environment.  He loves his walks and is always enthusiastic about meeting new people.  He is looking forward to the adventures life holds beyond kennels.

Henry is a beautiful and laid back chap who is a very affectionate and gentle soul.  He has slightly deformed hips, but is not in pain and it doesn't affect him as a pet.  He would love to join you on the sofa and is spotlessly clean in his kennel. Henry has found a home!

Taz has sadly been returned.  He is wonderful with children and very good in the house.  He is house-trained, used to the home environment and good with other greyhounds.  However, his only downfall is that he needs more socialising with other breeds.   Could you give Taz another chance?

Bob is a happy dog who arrived with Flo and Minnie.  He took everything in his stride and will be introduced to other breeds as soon as possible.  He visited our local vet for a promotional event and loved it; enjoying all the cuddles and life beyond kennels.

Minnie is slightly nervous until she gets to know you, but we are sure she will come round quickly as she wants to be friendly but is just a little unsure. She walks nicely on the lead and is a loving dog once she knows you. Minnie is currently reserved!

Nell is 3yrs old. She is a playful girl who loves company and wags her tail for everyone.  She will thrive in a home and would be best suited to a young family who could give her the life she craves.

Storm is a young boy who happily shares with both male and female greyhounds.  He only had one race and is now looking for a comfortable sofa to call his own.  He loves everyone and has a beautiful, black and shiny coat.  He is the perfect reason why black dogs should never be overlooked.  Could you be the lucky one to offer this boy a loving home?

Betty has sadly been returned.  She is perfect in the home environment - clean indoors, house-trained and can be left for up to five hours on her own without any problems at all.  She is fine with both male and female greyhounds but will need some more careful introductions to other breeds.  Otherwise, she is hoping to slot back into a home very quickly as she doesn't want to spend too long in kennels again.

Holly is 3yrs old and will be tested around other breeds as soon as possible but is a playful character and very friendly. As she is only a baby, she is quite bouncy, but once she has had a run around or a walk, she also likes to sleep with her legs in the air! Holly has found a home!
Boris is 3yrs old and has come out of his shell very quickly.  He is calm and placid; and very affectionate.  Of course, it now means there is more than one fawn Boris in this world! Our Boris walks nicely when he takes the lead (!) and would want to be chosen by potential visitors (he certainly wouldn't want to be a spectator (!).... He Mayor (!) may not be in kennels for long but he is certainly unique and hopefully he will fall on his paws quickly.  Boris should be fine around other breeds given the usual initial care.   Boris is currently reserved (pending visit and confirmation!)

Pixie is a young and bouncy girl who wolfed down a whole bowl of food on arrival and loves a cuddle!

Billy was sadly returned after the sad death of his previous owner.  He is used to home life and would love to fall on his paws again! Billy has found a home (pending confirmation!)

Paddy is 3yrs old and he was described by the trainer as the 'perfect pet' and great around children and people.  Paddy is currently reserved!

Alfie is a lovely chap who walks nicely on the lead and will be fine around other breeds given the usual initial care.  He is friendly and confident and it won't be long before he is snapped up! Alfie is currently reserved (pending visit and confirmation!) 

Nancy is a loving girl who wags her tail and just wants love.  She has visitors coming to see her so hopefully she will be falling on her paws quickly!) Nancy is currently reserved!) 

Clyde is a young man who is quite nervous at the moment, but we are hoping it will not take long for him to come out of his shell. He had visitors on his first Saturday with us (who loved him) so he will be lucky enough to be going home soon! Clyde is currently reserved!
