Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentines Date Anyone?

We have two gorgeous male greyhounds who are seeking their own family to love.

Could one of them be with you?

Update – Hermit has been reserved!  Now we need your help to find Thumper a home!

Hermit says “Love you!”

Hermit is a loveable, playful youngster who is very exctied about getting his own family.  He would make a nice walking buddy for some lucky person.  Please follow the link below to see his own information page.

Our next hunk is Thumper, what a lovely character he has, no dull moment with this boy.   He will enjoy all aspects of family life with you and although he is five, he really is a younger dog inside, he has been waiting for nearly a month now for his own home, all his friends have got homes but still Thumper waits on, with a smile still on his face!

Thumper the tennis mad athlete.

Will you be either Hermit or Thumper’s Valentine Date and make them the talk of the kennel block for excellent news?!

Well Done to the kennel dogs:

We are still working hard at the kennels, the greyhounds keep on coming in and are being homed not long after!

We do take our viewings and homings very seriously and we would ask you to do the same before making contact.

For all our dogs during this pandemic we are carrying out a significant amount of checks on any potential adopter, just like we always do, however we need you to play your part and actually seriously THINK before you adopt.

Please ask yourself:

Do I know enough information about this breed of dog?

Can we afford to keep the greyhound? (Vet bills, cost of equipment, monthly food allowance, parasite control, insurance etc)

If you go on holiday who is going to look after the dog?

If you have to return to work after the current lockdown, who is going to come into the house, to see to the dogs needs so they are only left 5 hours max?

Can you be sure you are going to continue to work from home after lockdown has finished?

What would happen if you were unwell?

Are you prepared to housetrain the dog?

Are you willing to take the greyhound out for their walks each day, even in the rain or when you are busy?

Will you get up at night if they need the toilet or are unwell?

We hope the above questions are a good starting point, for people who are seriously thinking of adoption a greyhound.

If you have any questions about adopting please do get in contact, we will be very pleased to talk to you about it.
