Meet our friend ARK (female)

*UPDATE* during the Coronavirus pandemic ARK is currently doing well in foster care with Makants volunteer Sue. Her current interests, apart from spending a lot of time sleeping, are canal walks seeing her friends the geese ….. and some light reading :)

Meet our friend PEGGY

A beautiful girl who loves a cuddle! PEGGY arrived with us on the 23rd February and is settling in well. We don't have any great photos yet as she always just wants to get up close and come for a cuddle :) More information to follow. Thanks to volunteer Shilpa for this photo.

Meet our friend ZEUS

*UPDATE* in the current Corona virus pandemic ZEUS is in foster care with volunteers Sue and Oliver. Sue tells us he's settled down into a routine, is enjoying his walks and going on lots of different routes. He's also very interested in everything going on around him when he's out and about. He's loves being brushed and any kind of affection. He knows exactly what time to expect his meals and lets them know if they're running late! He also seems to have the hang of housetraining as well, great work all round.

PEARL

*UPDATE* Pearl is now in a foster home with a male greyhound for company. She has made herself at home and settled well in a home environment. PEARL is very new to us having arrived on the 6th February 2020. She's a little timid but is starting to settle at kennels, more information to follow.

JAY

Stunning white and brindle girl JAY arrived with us at the end of January this year. Earlier this month she met her litter sister Leia, neither was very impressed! Jay is a friendly girl who has settled well and enjoys the company of the other greyhounds, more information to follow as we get to know her.

REG

*Update* due to the Corona Virus Pandemic the lovely REG is currently in a foster home locally with regular volunteer Celine. This lad, our dog of the month for April, has already shown what a clever boy he is with his toilet routine, always asking to go out when he needs to. He has settled into Celine’s routine (she is working from home) and spends the time she is working just snoozing his life away! He did, however, barge his way into a conference call when he first landed, something which caused Celine’s colleagues much amusement! Reg likes his food, with sardines being a particular favourite, another favourite is playing ball in the garden. Reg loves nothing more than spending time in the evenings cuddling up and has shown he is an affectionate boy too. Reg so far has been the perfect house guest, sleeping through the night downstairs with no problems at all. On walks he does, however, find other breeds of dog a bit exciting and likes to bark at them. We hope that, with more exposure to other breeds, this will lessen as time goes on and Celine is working with him on this.

CHLOE

Gorgeous brindle girl CHLOE arrived with us on 9th January this year. Siobhan describes her as 'adorable' so we think she's a little smitten with her.

DYLAN

Fawn lad DYLAN arrived with us at the end of December last year. He's a stunning lovely boy with a friendly character and has settled in well. He's easy to walk on the lead.

TOM

*Update* now in a foster home.* Sandy boy TOM arrived with us at the end of November. He's a lovely lad, and on a recent sleepover with one of our volunteers was described as 'exceptionally smart and very affectionate'.

TAYLOR

Black and white (cow hound) Taylor arrived with us at the beginning of November. He is a quiet lad and has settled with us well. He is affectionate and loves nothing more than a good roach and snooze after his daily walk. In fact roaching could be considered his favourite past time!

HARRY

Handsome Harry arrived with us at the beginning of November and is settling in well. He has become known as 'High Energy Harry' as he has lots of it! We believe Harry would suit an active family, probably with teenage children, where he would be able to enjoy long walks and be able to burn off some of that energy!

BULLET

Bullet is a young boy, 2 years old, and has never raced. He behaves well with all other breeds of dog. He's friendly, easy to walk and being young is still a bit bouncy! Bullet has recently enjoyed a sleepover with one of our regular volunteers and a day out too! He just needs a home to call his own.

ALFIE

*Update* Alfie has spent time in a home with one of our foster carers, enjoying the experience very much! * Four year old Alfie is a friendly lad who loves to play ball. He loves people too and enjoys time spent with volunteers, especially if they spend time cuddling him in his kennel. Alfie walks well on the lead.

CHUCK

Chuck arrived with us in September 2019. This Four year old boy is friendly and affectionate and loves cuddles. He would be ideally placed with a female hound for company or would be happy to live as an only hound.

CHARLIE

Charlie arrived with us in May this year and has settled in well. He gets on well with the other greyhounds and looks forward to his daily walks. In fact he does get very excited when it’s time for walkies! He does soon settle though and enjoys his walks treating each one as a new adventure.

ROBBIE

Stunning brindle and white four year old kennel hound Robbie has been in our care since the summer of 2018. Robbie has successfully spent some time in a family home but has recently been returned to us due to family illness.

HILLY

Hilly arrived with us in April last year and settled in well. He loves to watch the world go by and take everything in. He is a friendly young dog with lovely endearing puppy dog eyes. He put them to good use when he modelled our new dog coats and we think he secretly also loved all the attention!

PATRICK

It’s hard to believe but our lovely long stay hound Patrick has been with us for over four years now, having arrived with us in the summer of 2015. He was an extremely nervous boy initially, especially around people. It was a major task even to coax him out of his kennel and Siobhan spent a great deal of time working with him to gain his trust. These days Pat loves cuddles from the people he has grown to know and trust. He allows regular volunteers into his kennel who love to give him fuss and, most importantly, treats!
