Snowy is a large white Greyhound
SNOWY


SNOWY

Snowy is a stunning white greyhound covered in small black spots.  He was born on the 7th September 2011, is 29" to the shoulder and weighs about 36kg.
Snowy is house trained, neutered, inoculated, microchipped and is a very affectionate lad who, after his initial excitement when he knows he's going for a walk is okay on the lead and travels well in a car. Snowy is quite an insecure lad who gets upset when aeroplanes fly over and he tells you this by pacing.
Snowy has been homed once where he stayed for just o
ver a week.  His new owner fell in love with him the moment he saw him and adored him. however, he was suffering separation anxiety to such an extent his new owner who lived on his own came to the decision, much to his heartache that Snowy needed a home with a family who are at home most of the time and asked if he could be returned. 
As a result of Snowy's separation anxiety we are looking for a home where at least one of his owners are at home with him most of the time and the rest they can take him with them, at least initially until he becomes settled and they've taught him slowly and steadily over a period of time that if they go out they will be coming back so as to reduce his anxiety. Another calm greyhound as a companion would also help.  Snowy is a beautiful lad and is worth all the effort put in to help him over this hurdle.

Dizzy is a small blue Greyhound
DIZZY

DIZZY

Dizzy
is a very pretty 25kg blue ex-racing greyhound who was born on the 2nd September 2013 and who damaged her hock while racing. 
She is house trained, spayed, inoculated, microchipped and has had her damaged hock re-set and pinned.  She is currently undergoing rest following her operation and in time so she should be able to walk properly, or as near as good as properly again.
She's a really happy, sweet and playful nature, walks nicely on the lead although her walks are so very minimal at the moment during her post operation care and she travels well in a car.

Missy - brindle Greyhound
MISSY
(now called WILLOW)
MISSY
(now called WILLOW)


Missy (Mischief Mystery) is a beautiful brindle greyhound who was born on the 25th September 2013 and weighs 28kg.  She is house trained, spayed, inoculated, microchipped and recently had a dental. 
Missy has a lovely nature and enjoys playing with her toys.  She eats her food well and is perfect in the house. Is good with children and travels well in a car.
When she first arrived she was very wary of cyclists, vehicles, other breeds of dogs and the general 'big outside world'.
When she doesn't know you and you first take her out for a walk she can become very unsettled and pull on the lead especially if she sees other breeds of dogs around.  However, if you keep her on a very short lead, about a foot long, and close to your side she soon comes to realise after a few days that nothing will hurt her while you are there beside her. As each day passes she becomes more confident on her walks, but it's a case of taking things slowly with her to begin with until she's built up her confidence in you.
Willow is being fostered with Sarah, her family and her two greyhounds, all of whom love her to bits especially one of the greyhounds who she loves to play with.

King is a lovely black ex-racing greyhound
KING
KING

King has been with us a while looking for a new home, but because of one thing and another he is now back with his previous owner/trainer living in his home until we can find King a very special home of his own. 
The home King needs is with an experienced greyhound owner, one where he will be an only dog who can be given lots of love and affection, one where there is a garden for him to sit and run around in, and one where there are no young children or the grandchildren rarely visit.
King's puppyhood and early years had been awful and he would have died had his current owner/trainer not been told of his plight and saved his life by purchasing him.  He took King into his home where he brought him back to good health with a lot of TLC, and to thank him King won many races for him.  In view of King's past and present circumstances I didn't have the heart to send him to another Greyhound Trust branch where he may remain the rest of his life, so I spoke to his previous owner/trainer who agreed to have him back.  He loves King dearly and doesn't want to see any harm come to him, so he will look after him in his home until we find King a special home of his own, and if that doesn't come along he will keep King forever.

GEORGE
GEORGE

George is a lovely brindle ex-racing greyhound who was born in November 2015, weighs 29.3kg., has a nice nature and is a real softy, loves being cuddled and will allow you to do that all day.  He walks fine on the lead and is okay with other breeds of dogs.  George fractured his hock while racing but this has been repaired and we've been told its healed okay.  However, he will keep it lifted occasionally as he walks and hop if he's moving too fast, but will walk on it if he's only going slowly. This will improve given time and he uses it more. George is a super dog and will make someone a lovely companion.
