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



Smasher - male greyhound

Smasher is a handsome and striking greyhound who is very affectionate.  He is enjoying the snuggly blankets at the kennels and loving meeting people.  He is strong on the lead initially and will need some more introductions to other breeds.  He does not react aggressively but needs to learn to focus on the walk as well!  He will be lovely once he calms down and just needs to learn some etiquette when out and about. He will be very loving once he finds his special home.





Dinky - male greyhound

Dinky has sadly been returned after the other dog in the home did not accept him.  He needs a bit of socialising around other breeds and does not like to be on his own at night.  However, he is house-trained, on the petite side (hence his name) and very affectionate.  Could you help Dinky find his forever home?





Richie - male greyhound


Richie is a gentle, but slightly apprehensive boy who is very loving once he knows you.  He should be fine around other breeds given the usual initial care and will thrive once he comes out of his shell.  He is spotless in his kennel and enjoying his walks.  (Please ignore the dates on the photos - technical glitch with camera!).   



Jack - male greyhound

Jack came in with Rosie (who has found a home and is doing wonderfully well) and had been homed once by his trainer.  He is therefore house-trained and used to the home environment so should slot back into home life quickly.  Jack will need a home without young children. He is a playful and happy boy who loves a cuddle and really enjoys a game in the paddocks. 



Archie - male greyhound

Archie is a confident and happy greyhound and loves nuzzling into you for affection. He will need some further introduction and careful handling around other breeds, but is a lovely dog who deserves a loving home.











Freddie - male greyhound

Freddie is a handsome greyhound with soulful eyes who is really hoping that his sofa is quickly forthcoming!  He will need a little more introduction to other breeds, but is really good with all other greyhounds. 





Merlin - male greyhound

Merlin is a young boy who didn't do much racing and wants to fall on his paws at home.  He is happy and friendly and should be good around other breeds (with the usual careful introductions).  He is quiet in the kennel and will make a great addition to the home. 











Jeff - male greyhound

Jeff is a loving chap who deserves a loving home.  He is clean in his kennel, happy to meet new people and is adjusting to life at Whittingham kennels. 









Ross - male greyhound




Ross
 is 5yrs old and has sadly been returned.  He is house-trained, good on the lead, really gentle when out and about, good with smaller dogs and other greyhounds and really affectionate.  He is the perfect kennel resident! However, his only issue is that he must not be disturbed when asleep.  So he will not be homed with young children and would be better with one adult or adults who can leave him alone when he is asleep.  Could you give Ross the forever home he craves?  Update: Ross needs to go to a quiet home, preferably with a man on his own as he seems to prefer the company of men.  We will be very careful who he goes to as he is perfect in so many ways but has a few issues to work with.  





Pippy - female greyhound 


Pippy is 6yrs old and a happy and friendly girl who loves the other greyhounds.  She should be fine around other breeds (with initial care) and is very affectionate. Her tail doesn't stop wagging and she is so happy to meet everyone. Pippy is currently reserved!












Willis - male greyhound

Willis is a handsome chap - he is 5yrs old and good with children and other breeds (given the usual care).  His trainer tells us that he loves cuddles and we have seen that too!  He is really hoping his special home will come along. Willis is currently reserved!




Pablo - male greyhound 

Pablo is a friendly soul who likes coming up to the bars to say hello to passers by!  He will make a great addition to any home and will be tested with other breeds as soon as possible.













Fame - male greyhound


Fame is a gentle boy who is slightly wary of new people until he gets to know you.  It won't take him long to come out of his shell though and often this makes them even more loyal and loving. Fame is currently reserved!







Sonny - male greyhound


Sonny has sadly been returned and is seeking his forever home.  He will happily share with a female greyhound and loves company.  He has been in a home for a few weeks so is more accustomed to the wider world now and we will assess him on the lead.  He used to be strong but being at home may have worked its magic! He is really hoping to find another loving home quickly.  He loves his food and is a very loving boy. 


Pearl - female greyhound 



Pearl is a friendly girl who has been in a home for about a year and sadly been returned.  She is good with people, clean and quiet and great with children.  However, she will need help with socialising around other breeds.  We will continue to test her.  She is fine with the other greyhounds.  Pearl is currently reserved!









Lucy - female greyhound

Lucy is a small and gentle soul who will be assessed further over the coming days.  She can be strong on the lead but this will ease quickly once she gets used to regular walks.  Lucy is currently reserved!



















Charlie - male greyhound


Charlie is a handsome and gentle boy who loves a cuddle and enjoys meeting people!  He is slightly strong on the lead but this is easily rectified.  He is good with the other greyhounds and will be tested around smaller dogs as soon as possible.
