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.

Maudie is a special little girl who was born with a bent/deformed foot, meaning she did not race.  This does not cause her any difficulty now (you wouldn't even know which leg).  She is good around other breeds and a dear little soul who deserves a loving home. Maudie has found a home!

Sam is 4yrs old and a loving boy who loves company and thrives with other greyhounds.  He is good on the lead, but will need a little more introduction to smaller breeds until he gets used to them.  He has a lovely temperament and is friendly and affectionate. Could you give Sam a chance at home?

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!  He will be tested around other breeds as soon as possible!

Moony is 2yrs old and a big baby who wants to play and have cuddles.  He should not be 'eclipse'd by the others as that would leave a huge crater in your heart.  (Sorry, enough with the tidal wave of  'moon' puns...We don't want to sound totally lunar!).  Seriously, though, he is a lovely boy who deserves a loving home quickly. Moony has found a home!

Alana is 2yrs old and a dear little soul who was originally, but came around within one week and is now a different dog! She will be an ideal candidate to go with another dog and is now, in an amazing transformation, happy to go out for a walk and meet new people.  Alana is good around other breeds given the usual initial care.  Could you give Alana a loving home?

Jocky is 4yrs old and a lovely character who loves to be with you and so would be best suited to someone who works from home or is retired.  He walks nicely on the lead and proved to be good with other breeds (given the usual initial care) when he was taken down to the town for testing.  He deserves a chance and hopes to fall on his paws quickly. Jocky has found a home!

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

Jim is a handsome chap who is happy and friendly and clean in his kennel. He will be tested around other breeds as soon as possible and should make a great addition to any home. Jim is currently reserved!

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?

Tiger is Ace's brother and a brindle boy who is very affectionate, loves everyone, is used to children and gets on well with both male and female greyhounds.  He is a confident and happy soul who will thrive in the home environment.

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.

Flo is a friendly girl who came in with Bob and Minnie.  She loves everyone and will happily live with another greyhound. Flo has found a home!

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. Minnie is currently reserved (pending visit and confirmation!)

Dolly is slightly nervous until she gets to know you but it doesn't take long for her tail to wag so we are sure she will quickly overcome any initial nervousness and settle quickly.  She is quite small and whoever has Dolly will be very lucky as she will undoubtedly thrive at home. Dolly has found a home!

Chiefie has sadly been returned.  He was perfect in the house and bonded very quickly so will be a wonderfully affectionate dog and good company for his new home.  He will, however, need very careful introductions to other breeds as he is good with some, but does not like small white fluffy dogs.  He will be a great dog for someone so let's not let him be overlooked for too long.
