(Ages are available upon request)   


Boris - male greyhound



Boris is a loving boy who is quite small for a male greyhound, but he is still quite strong.  This would soon improve with regular walks and once out of Kennels.  He enjoys his food, is a happy boy and loves everyone!  He needs some more careful introductions to other breeds but is otherwise faultless!


















Jet - male greyhound

Jet is slightly nervous until he gets to know you but we are sure he won't take long to come round.  It must be very strange to change kennels so we understand he may be a bit unsure to start with.  The same may apply at home, although we hope he will come out of his shell as time goes on.  He is loving and friendly when he trusts you and will learn to accept other breeds quickly with the usual initial careful introductions.














Glen - male greyhound  

Glen is a happy boy who loves affection.  He happily shares and is confident around other greyhounds.  He will be tested around other breeds as soon as possible.   He looks quite small in the photo but is actually a medium-larger boy (normal greyhound size)! He walks nicely on the lead, seems fine with other breeds (with the usual careful introductions) and loves his food.







Bonty - male greyhound

Bonty is a friendly and confident boy who is a little strong on the lead at the moment but will be taken out by our volunteers and get used to everything over time.  He happily shares with other greyhounds and is being further introduced to other breeds as much as possible.  He absolutely adores affection and is such a cuddly boy.  He loves the visiting children and is a really tolerant boy with any female with whom he shares his kennel.







Fifi - female greyhound

Fifi is a lovely girl who quickly came out of her shell and started wagging her tail.  She shares happily, walks nicely on the lead and should be fine around other breeds (given the usual careful introductions).  She would be the perfect addition to most homes!  








Ed - male greyhound

Ed is a friendly and handsome fellow who loves a cuddle and shares happily with female greyhounds.  He will be further assessed around other breeds as soon as possible and looks like he will slot happily into any home.
















Frankie - male greyhound



Frankie
is a lovely boy who is good on the lead and has so far proven good around other breeds of all sizes.  He can be nervous until he gets to know you and so would be best not homed with young children.  He is clean in his kennel and adjusted to life at Whittingham quickly (so we are sure the same will prove correct once he goes into a home environment).








Shirley - female greyhound

Shirley is a lovely girl who is looking to fall on her paws in a loving home.  She shares happily with other greyhounds and is delicate when taking treats.  She should be fine around other breeds with initial care and is a confident and happy girl.















Finn - male greyhound 

Finn is a dear boy who needed to gain some weight when he first arrived, but is otherwise in good condition.  We took him in after he could no longer stay in his previous home, but he did not come from us originally.  He should, therefore, be house-trained, used to the home environment and generally calm in the home.  He is affectionate and friendly, but also quite reserved.  He is fine around other breeds with the usual initial care and very affectionate.  He walks nicely on the lead and has regained the weight (since this photo was taken and since he arrived).  He really deserves a loving home.










Storm - male greyhound 

Storm is a chunky, handsome chap who seems extremely affectionate and ready to start his new life.  He has been in holding Kennels for a while so is really keen to find himself a loving family and place on a sofa.  He will be tested around other breeds as soon as possible but initial signs are good.  He also shares happily with other greyhounds.













Arthur - male greyhound

Arthur has sadly been returned.  He is excellent with small dogs (with initial care), loves the company of other greyhounds and good on the lead.  Could you offer Arthur a loving home so he doesn't have to spend too long in Kennels?  Arthur went on a one night trial with potential adopters.  He was wonderful - cuddly, relaxed and gentle.  (Sadly, they couldn't adopt him as their cat was too upset) - but Arthur was great!   (If he were to go with a cat, we would have to be very careful and it might depend on the cat's reaction).  But he'd be great with another dog and is a really lovely boy.  Arthur is currently reserved!








Pickle - female greyhound

Pickle is a dear little girl who loves affection and even played with a ball.  She would really love to fall on her paws at home.  She is only 4yrs old, although quite grey around the face!  But she says it is wisdom, not ageing.  She would love a good home and whoever has Pickle will be very lucky. 









Roxy - female greyhound

Roxy is a gentle and confident girl with a very pink nose!
She is good on the lead and will be further assessed. She shares happily with the other greyhounds and is a really lovely dog.  She likes to tidy up around the Kennels by picking up the food bowls!  She will be a really fun character to have at home. 














Clive - male greyhound

Clive
is a handsome and friendly boy who is confident and happy.  He has met a few other breeds and may need some more careful introductions but it won't take him long to realise he can interact happily around other dogs.  He is clean in his Kennel and very affectionate.

















Star - female greyhound

Star is a gentle, affectionate and super loving girl who rolls over for a cuddle and is good on the lead.  She has so far proven to be good around other breeds with the usual initial care.  She loves to put her paws on you for a cuddle and is a fan with all our volunteers and staff because she is so endearing.  Star is currently reserved!













Sheene - male greyhound

Sheene is a handsome and very gentle boy who just wanted a cuddle when he was having his photograph taken.  He seems a very docile and calm fellow who would love to fall on his paws in a special home.  Could you be the lucky one to adopt Sheene? 














Rose - female greyhound

Rose is another dear little soul who wants nothing but love and affection.  She will make the perfect addition to any home.  She loves her food and should be fine with other breeds with the usual careful introductions.  She shares happily with other greyhounds and is spotlessly clean in her kennel.  Rose is currently reserved!
















Cheeky - male greyhound 

Cheeky is a small boy which will go in his favour.  He loves his food and is good around other breeds (with the usual initial care).  He is generally very placid and affectionate but he does need care in certain situations so we won't be homing him with children.  He will need someone who can work with praise and understanding and we are confident he will be an absolute star in such a setting.  He loves all the visitors and is always up for his walks (and coming home again to sleep afterwards)!
   




Betsy - female greyhound

Betsy is a loving girl who shares happily and is very affectionate and friendly.  She is good around most other breeds (with the usual initial care) and although slightly stronger on the lead than some, we know this will improve with regular walks.  She's a super girl!









Monty - male greyhound

Monty is a handsome and solid boy who is the sister of our other current resident, Roxy.  He did well on his visit down to the town and saw a lot of other breeds.  He would make a great addition to any home.  His original name was 'money' but we have tweaked this a little to make it more sensible!! Could you offer Monty a special home?













Tricia - female greyhound

Tricia is a dear girl who just wants affection.  She shares happily with other greyhounds. She's good on the lead and around other breeds (with the usual care) and very friendly.  Tricia is currently reserved!














  

Emily - female greyhound

Emily is a lovely little girl who has been in a home and is therefore used to the home environment and house-trained.  She is good with other breeds and walks nicely on the lead.  She came from a 'pet' home after being homed directly from the trainer and so we didn't know her before she was homed.  However, upon investigating her identity, we discovered she is actually our own long-stay, Jack's direct litter sister!  She even looks like Jack!   We would love to get her back into a home quickly.
