Greyhounds looking for homes

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



Rocky is 6yrs old and a lovely boy who has been in a home, but sadly been returned. He is used to the home environment, house trained and
lived with children. However, he will need socialisation around other breeds and someone who is used to greyhounds/larger breeds.  Could you give Rocky another chance?








Red is 7 years old and came to us with Ash (who has found a home!) 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 and is enjoying 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.






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.






Christopher is 6yrs old and a beautiful boy who has been in a home before.  He would be best suited without young children, but will be fine around other breeds given the usual initial care.  He is house-trained, used to the home environment and came with his own wardrobe (he has to wear HIS coat as he takes all others off!). He has been very well cared for and hopes a warm, comfy bed will be awaiting him in a special home very quickly.
Christopher 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 was in splendid condition upon his return and surely someone will snap him up now!







Tina is 4yrs old and a vibrant soul who loves a cuddle and is also well behaved around other breeds given the usual initial precautions.  She is slightly strong on the lead but this will soon decrease as she gets used to going out and about more often. She is spotlessly clean in her kennel and will happily share with another greyhound.



















Chief is a handsome boy who came in with Molly (below).  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 is happily sharing with Molly so will be fine as an only dog or with the company of other greyhounds.  He will be tested with other breeds as soon as possible.


















Betty is another happy soul who loves everyone! She will adjust very quickly to life at home and will be a great addition to any family.  She will be tested around smaller animals as soon as possible, but should be fine around smaller breeds as she was used to seeing a small dog at her previous kennels.  (She looks a little contorted in the photograph as she decided to wrap the lead around herself! But it kept her still to take the picture)!  Betty had a home for three nights and was found to be absolutely no trouble at all and the perfect dog.  She was only returned due to a bereavement and really needs another home now she's had a taste of home life.  She was clean at home, good with children, slept peacefully overnight with her legs in the air and really deserves a loving home quickly again.  Whoever adopts Betty will be very lucky indeed. Betty is currently reserved!


















Jimmy is a dear soul who has a lovable face and would really like to find a loving home to call his own.  He is friendly, happy and confident and will soon settle down once he gets into a routine.  Could you offer Jimmy a special home? Jimmy has found a home (pending final confirmation!)



























Gandolf is a happy boy who has sadly been returned.  He is used to the home environment so it would be great if a loving home would come along quickly for him.  He loves his walks so an active (for a greyhound) lifestyle would be fine for him.  He is slightly strong on the lead at present but this would decrease with regular walks and patience.  He would be best suited to someone who works from home.




Writing is red as website has mind of its own!



Butch is a beautiful chap who has been very well cared for and wants to follow that through with a place in a loving home.  He will need some care around other breeds but is otherwise a lovely dog.  Could you give this lovely boy a loving home?  Thank you to Paul for the photograph!



















Taz is 4yrs old and has sadly been returned.  He is a wonderful house dog - loves children and is used to the home environment.  He loves to have a cuddle on the sofa and would really love a warm home again quickly so he does not have to spend too long in kennels. 



Boss is 3yrs old and a happy chap who loves his food and love a cuddle.  He loved the comfort of the blankets when he arrived with us and will be tested around other breeds as soon as possible.  














Rocco is  a very handsome chap who is exceptionally quiet and gentle that you hardly know he is there! He is spotlessly clean in his kennel and will make a great addition to any home.  He will be tested around smaller breeds as soon as possible when he has his trip down to the town (as we give to all our new arrivals!).   Rocco has found a home!

















Archie  is a handsome chap who is very calm in the kennels and happy to share with another dog.  He is gentle on the lead and will be tested around other breeds as soon as possible. 
















Becky is an exceptionally friendly girl who wouldn't stop smiling at the camera! She is very affectionate, loves a cuddle and should be find around other breeds given the usual initial precautions.  She deserves a loving home as quickly as possible!

















Chiefy is a delightful chap who is no trouble and loves a cuddle.  He should be fine to live with other greyhounds, is clean in his kennel and loves his food.  He is naturally on the slim side so needs more food than most to maintain his weight, but otherwise he is a striking chap who deserves a loving home as soon as possible!  He looks a bit worried in this picture as he had just arrived and was then hitched to the wall for his mugshot! It was all a bit strange for him but he soon settled in and will undoubtedly quickly do the same in the home environment.








Billy is 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?















Cyril is 4yrs old and a happy, friendly boy who is gentle on the lead and clean in his kennel.  He will thrive in the home environment and would love a special place to call his own. He didn't really appreciate being tied to the 'dog parking' but as he kept coming towards me for cuddles in the paddock, there was no alternative if he wanted to be featured on the website! He will make a great addition to any home.


Abbie  is sadly being returned (on Saturday).  She will make a great addition for most homes as she is house-trained, gentle with adults and children alike and fine with other breeds.  Her favourite thing is going for walks and having the opportunity for lots of 'sniffs'!  She loves a tummy rub and has some really playful moments in which she likes everyone to join her and is a very entertaining and well behaved girl.  She is only being returned because she needs someone who is retired or who works from home as she prefers to have someone with her.  She is not demanding of constant attention, but she needs to have someone who will not leave her for long stretches as she likes to have someone nearby.  Could you offer Abbie the forever home she craves? She doesn't want to be stuck in cold kennels having enjoyed the comforts of home life.  





Flash is a loving boy who is quiet in the kennels and very affectionate.  He has a distinctive white stripe on his nose which marks him out from the other dogs and he is clean in his kennel.  He is gentle, friendly, confident (in a quiet way) and deserves a loving home quickly.  He came from the same kennel as Christopher who obviously recognised his former kennel-mate as he had to get himself seen smiling in the background!
