The Great Global Greyhound Walk

On Sunday the 9th June Greyhound Lifeline led their own Great Global Greyhound Walk.  The weather held for the occasion with some nice warm spells and we saw lots of familiar faces as well as some new ones too to welcome to the event.

We had 50 sighthounds in attendance and we raised £185.33 for the greyhounds in our care.

Greyhound Lifeline would like to say a big thank you to Diane, Kathryn and Caroline for organising, route planning and providing the refreshments after the event.

Updates:

The team have been busy through May with fundraising events, the greyhounds have also been working hard with their training around unfamiliar breeds of dog.

For some of our greyhounds this is easy and they just want to have fun and play!

For others this can take weeks or months of retraining, patience and reassurance from their handler. We are really pleased with all the dogs and the progress they have made, however small it is to us, it is a huge step for them. Lots of praise and reward is given to all the greyhounds for all their successes.

Marshall excelled himself through May. He has come along way and is now starting to accept small dogs as friends providing he has a handler who he can trust and look to for reassurance.

Well done Marshall!
