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.

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.

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.

Billy is 4 yrs old and a handsome chap who has obviously been watching the Winter Olympics as he seems to have finished his routine with a flourish and twisty pose in this picture! He is a loving and affectionate dog who behaved well on his trip to the town and is clean in his kennel.  He loves everyone and is always the first up at the door to greet anyone walking past.  Could you give this lovely boy a home?

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 is currently reserved!  Maudie has undergone an operation.  We hope she will be better quickly and on her way home as soon as possible!

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!

Jamie is 4yrs old and a lovely dog who wins your affection quickly and loves everyone.  He is used to children and spotlessly clean in his kennel.  He will be assessed around other breeds as soon as possible. Jamie has found a home!

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 is currently reserved!

Alana is 2yrs old and a dear little soul who is quite nervous until she gets to know you.  It won't take her long to come round, however, as she wants to be friendly and wags her tail but is just very unsure.  She will need someone who can help her with her confidence and would be an ideal candidate to go with another dog who could help bring her out of her shell.  Could you give Alana a loving home? Alana is currently reserved!

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.

Bertie is  4yrs old and a chunky chap who is very affectionate and loves everyone.  He happily shares with the female greyhounds and his trainer was full of praise for him when he brought him in.  He shouldn't be overlooked as another black dog as he has bags of character and is just as handsome as the more unusual colours. Could  you give Bertie a loving home? Bertie is currently reserved!

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

Tammy is a happy soul who loves everyone and is confident and outgoing.  She walks nicely on the lead and would love to find a loving home as quickly as possible. Tammy is currently reserved!

Ricky has sadly been returned through no fault of his own.  The landlord changed his mind about ownership of a dog so this has meant Ricky has had to be returned.  Ricky is 12yrs old so it is essential that we can find him a home as quickly as possible so he does not have to spend long in kennels.  He is fine around other dogs and children.  He has lived in a home for 10yrs so is used to the home environment. Ricky has found a home!
