(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.







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).







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. 













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? 














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!









 

Holly - female greyhound

Holly is a petite lady who is good on the lead and should be fine around other breeds with initial care.  She is clean in her kennel, happy to meet new people and a lovely girl. Holly has found a home!



















Loki - male greyhound

Loki is a handsome chap who should be a great addition to any home.  He has been near a small dog and did well on his trip to the town.  He might need a little time to gain more confidence but it didn't take him long to come round to all the staff and volunteers at Whittingham so we are sure he will adjust quickly in a home environment.









Rocky - male greyhound

Rocky is a beautiful boy who is wary of new people and can bark at visitors.  However, it doesn't take him long to trust you and wag his tail so if someone is willing to give him a chance, he will turn into the most loyal and loving boy.  He is clean in his kennels, enjoys his food and shouldn't be overlooked because of his initial nervousness.














Colleen - female greyhound 

Colleen is a friendly little girl who is still quite puppy-like.  She will be tested around other animals as soon as possible, but loves her food and is a happy girl.
















Timmy - male greyhound

Timmy is a handsome boy who is getting used to everything at Whittingham and coming out of his shell.  He is a little apprehensive at first but it doesn't take him long to come round. 
















Julietta - female greyhound

Julietta is a beautiful girl who is really gentle on the lead and did well with other breeds on her trip to the town.  She is really affectionate and friendly and will make a delightful addition to any home.  Julietta is currently reserved!
















Xanadu - male greyhound

Xanadu is a happy and confident soul who would love to fall on his paws in a loving home.  He shares happily with other greyhounds and was good on his walk to the town (around other breeds).  He was very interested in pigeons though!!  He is a loving boy who is always up at the door to say 'hello' to whoever is passing and happy to give him a stroke. Xanadu has found a home!








 

Dolly - female greyhound

Dolly is an extremely placid and beautiful dog.  She has a really gentle nature, shares happily with everyone and really wants a loving home where she can be pampered as she deserves.  She also did well around other breeds when she visited the town.  Could you be the lucky person who adopts Dolly? Dolly has found a home!















Bluebell - female greyhound

Bluebell
is a dear girl who loves a cuddle.  She has sadly been returned through no fault of her own and due to a family emergency that required her adopter to move abroad.   She is house-trained, used to the home environment and good with most other breeds.  She is, however, quite strong on the lead, but is otherwise the perfect addition for any home.  Could you be the lucky person to adopt Bluebell? Bluebell is currently reserved!






Tina - female greyhound

Tina is a dear little soul who is very friendly and gentle.  We homed her sister (Pam) and her mum (Rosie) so we hope she will fall on her paws too.  She will be assessed around other breeds asap, but is very clean in her kennel and will be a great addition to any home. Tina has found a home!













Alex - male greyhound

Alex is a handsome chap who is quite a large greyhound but very loving.  He is 7yrs old and really deserves a home after waiting in racing Kennels for so long.  He is the brother of one of our previously homed hounds so it would be lovely if he fell on his feet too!  He shares happily with Misty and loves his food. He is really gentle and affectionate.  He should be ok with other breeds with initial care.







Rhino and Evie - male and female greyhounds

Rhino and Evie are sadly looking for new homes after a change in circumstance for their adopter.  They can be separated but would ideally find a home with another greyhound.  They are good with both male and female greyhounds.  They are house-trained, used to the home environment and very affectionate.  Rhino was one of our longer-term dogs when he was with us so we would love to find him another home quickly.  They will be staying in their current home until September (unless things change and they need to be returned earlier), so please email if you would like to meet them.  Rhino will need some more socialising around other dogs and although he can be left for a little while on his own, he would ideally have someone who is around at home.








Foxy - male greyhound

Foxy loves a game and is a very affectionate boy.  He has unusual colouring with hints of dalmation! (But he is a full greyhound).  He is a little strong on the lead at the moment but this would soon improve with someone willing to give him the chance.


















Custard - female greyhound

Custard is a gentle girl who happily shares with the other greyhounds.  She is good on the lead and should be ok with other breeds (given the usual careful introductions).  













Paddy - male lurcher (photo to come) - he is very nervous at the moment but is gradually coming out of his shell and loves rushing around in the paddocks next to the other dogs.  He will be assessed as he settles in. Paddy is currently reserved (pending confirmation)!


Tag - male greyhound

Tag is a handsome chap and quite long and slight in build.  He did very well on his trip to the town and didn't react to other breeds so we think he should be fine with the usual careful introduction.  He's a confident and affectionate boy.
