  • Dogs Homed – January - February

BUDDY ( Buddys Luck) and JENNY (Buzz Off aka ROXIE) our lovely,inseperable pair of greyhounds have found a lovely home together with Maureen and Julian Ingleby. Sadly, their lovely lurcher CHINA died just before Christmas and they decided to home a pair of dogs this time. They have both settled into their new home beautifully.

JANE (Fanabe Fonda) has joined DIGGER and his family: Louise & Mark Tray and their 5 sons. A very special greyhound (as Digger is) to live in a busy household where Louise also works as a childminder. Digger is very happy as he had been feeling a bit sad since Maisie ,the family collie cross, died last year aged 17yrs.

OOZIE ( Black Sabath). Julie & Kevin Howat decided to get a dog but weren’t sure which breed would suit them. They came to see us and OZZIE decided that they were perfect greyhound owners and that was that. He has settled in really well and Julie & Kevin are delighted with him.

BECKY (Ball Night aka BETTY) has been waiting a long time for a home and Marjorie Whales has been waiting a long time for a greyhound but needed to get a lot of building work finished before she could actually adopt one. They met, liked each other, and the rest as they say is history - Betty loves her new home, and all the attention, and Marjorie loves
her new companion. Betty was a tricky one as she can be a bit demanding but her new owner is practised with training dogs and has got the measure of her.
