Greyhounds looking for homes

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



Rocky is 6yrs 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 7 years old and came to us with Ash (who has 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!  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.






Sylvie is 3yrs 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.






Christopher is 6yrs 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.
Christopher 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 was in splendid condition upon his return and surely someone will snap him up now!







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 will happily share with another greyhound.



















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.





















Tatum has sadly been returned.. This was her original photograph from when she first arrived. Tatum would love another home quickly as she is used to the home environment.  She is spotlessly clean indoors and very loving and affectionate.  She will need careful handling around other breeds until she understands fully that these are 'dogs'. Otherwise, she is a great girl who really needs a loving home.













Betty is another happy soul who loves everyone! She will adjust very quickly to life at home and will be a great addition to any family.  She will be tested around smaller animals as soon as possible, but should be fine around smaller breeds as she was used to seeing a small dog at her previous kennels.  (She looks a little contorted in the photograph as she decided to wrap the lead around herself! But it kept her still to take the picture)!


















Jimmy is a dear soul who has a lovable face and would really like to find a loving home to call his own.  He is friendly, happy and confident and will soon settle down once he gets into a routine.  Could you offer Jimmy a special home?

























Clarky has sadly been returned.  He is a lovely, friendly affectionate dog and would be best suited to someone who works from home or is retired.  He will be retested around smaller breeds as soon as possible but loves his food and loves all the adventures of life beyond kennels. He is good around the other greyhounds and hopes he will soon find a sofa to call his own! Clarky has found a home (pending confirmation!) 






















Gandolf is a happy boy who has sadly been returned.  He is used to the home environment so it would be great if a loving home would come along quickly for him.  He loves his walks so an active (for a greyhound) lifestyle would be fine for him.  He is slightly strong on the lead at present but this would decrease with regular walks and patience.  He would be best suited to someone who works from home.




Writing is red as website has mind of its own!



Butch is a beautiful chap who has been very well cared for and wants to follow that through with a place in a loving home.  He will need some care around other breeds but is otherwise a lovely dog.  Could you give this lovely boy a loving home?  Thank you to Paul for the photograph!



















Taz is 4yrs old and has sadly been returned.  He is a wonderful house dog - loves children and is used to the home environment.  He loves to have a cuddle on the sofa and would really love a warm home again quickly so he does not have to spend too long in kennels. 



Boss is 3yrs old and a happy chap who loves his food and love a cuddle.  He loved the comfort of the blankets when he arrived with us and will be tested around other breeds as soon as possible.  











Rebel is a handsome black dog with doleful eyes and a lovely character.  He came in with May and will happily share with a female greyhound.  He walks nicely on the lead and should be fine around other breeds with the usual care.  He even met a fox whilst at the vet (when he went with May for the ride whilst she was spayed!).




















Rocco is  a very handsome chap who is exceptionally quiet and gentle that you hardly know he is there! He is spotlessly clean in his kennel and will make a great addition to any home.  He will be tested around smaller breeds as soon as possible when he has his trip down to the town (as we give to all our new arrivals!).  

















Archie  is a handsome chap who is very calm in the kennels and happy to share with another dog.  He is gentle on the lead and will be tested around other breeds as soon as possible. 

















Sadie is an exceptionally friendly girl who loves everyone and is spotlessly clean in her kennel.  She is quite small and very affectionate.  Sadie has found a home!


















Micky is a lovable boy who loves to be with people and is very easy to walk on the lead.  He should be fine around smaller breeds with the usual initial care, but would probably best suit someone who is retired or who works from home.  He is clean in his kennel and a little bit stressed in kennels so he would relish finding a loving home as quickly as possible.  Micky is currently reserved!




















Jess is also very friendly and loving.  She is not nervous in any way and would suit most home situations.  She will be tested  around other breeds as soon as possible.  Jess is currently reserved!

















Jo is a lovely boy who is quiet, clean and gentle in the kennels.  His trainer had a soft-spot for him and said "you won't know you've got him" so hopefully he will not be with us long as he deserves a loving home in the warm.  He has interacted happily with whippets and other greyhounds and will be tested again around the town with other breeds.  He will be the perfect addition to any home so don't be swayed by the more unusual colours and do consider a black dog.  They make the perfect pets! 

















Becky is an exceptionally friendly girl who wouldn't stop smiling at the camera! She is very affectionate, loves a cuddle and should be find around other breeds given the usual initial precautions.  She deserves a loving home as quickly as possible!
