Dogs Homed – September/October
TESS (Brinklow Tess) has been homed by the Dines Allen Family (including their 2 cats) and she is now living very happily in Huntingdon.
PEACH (Shelbourne Peach) was chosen by Pamela & John Minors. Dog owners in the past, Peach is their first greyhound and she made it clear to them that they were her choice.
LADY (Shelbourne Lime) was chosen by Karen & David and daughter Saoirse. She is also their first greyhound and has settled into her new home and routine very happily.
PIPPA ( Point Honcho) homed by Nikki & Ian Taylor. It is often a hard decision to have another dog after the death of one. Floyd was a lovely dog and greatly missed but Pippa with her bright and breezy character soon captivated the whole family.
LEON (Specific Answer) has found his new and happy home with Helen & Tim Gant and daughters Megan, Emma and Alice. Oh, and not forgetting the 3 Guinea Pigs and Cord Snake.
TESSA (Maxilla Mobile) we couldn’t understand why she was ‘left on the shelf’ all the time and neither could Sharon & Paul Toon and daughters Charlotte-Rose and Georgina. Tessa fell in love with them the moment they met and naturally it was reciprocated.
OLLY ( WALLY– Roxholme Warrior) Here’s another one. Olly made it clear to Sharon Marriott that she had to give him a home and she couldn’t resist him. He loves his new home and doesn’t even mind the love birds.
WILLY ( Abbeyfeale Jet) had to pass the test not just with Carole & Mike Bunyard and son James (that was the easy bit) but with SKYE their 9yr old fawn lurcher. A very pretty, small dog but with a character made of steel. She knew exactly which dog she would choose and thought Willy would know his place. They have become really close companions.
SKIPPY ( Ogaras Skip Pass) impressed himself on the Miles family. Mandy & Bob and daughter Shelby (plus the guinea pigs) are delighted with their new dog and Skippy loves his new home.
Dogs Homed - July/August
BUDDY (Larkhill Bud) came out of his shell and took to Louisa Horton & Hannah Belbin as soon as he met them. Luckily, as we had thought, he also took to their two Burmese cats. All three animals are getting along famously and even groom each other.
BOBBY (Travel Keane) overlooked by so many people proved an instant hit with Tracy and Tony Henderson who were looking for a companion for their greyhound LIZZIE. Both greyhounds get on famously and make a very handsome couple.
BARNEY (Barney Yeo Yeo) has been homed by Julia & Richard Orzechowski and set off with Richard by Euro Tunnel to France where he will live in rural splendour with Daisy their greyhound who has been quite lonely since the loss of Mick (Crockers Mick)
TINA (Avondale Tina) has found a wonderful, loving home with Catherine& Jason Botting and their young son.
DYLAN (Blissful Tinrah - PARKY) has also found a very happy home with Sonia & David Driver, daughter Michelle, PADDY the greyhound and ELLIE a very spry 13yr old Lurcher. Paddy and Dylan got on straight away and Ellie seemed happy to allow Dylan into her team whilst maintaining her aloofness and dignity.
PEARL (Pearl of Tinrah) who has sometimes proved to bit a bit over exuberant for some visitors didn’t faze Eileen & John Smith and she has settled in really well even going to work with John and making friends with the office staff.
DAISY (Drohans Spot - SPOT) has a lovely new name and a lovely new family Alison & David Homer, Emma 10, Sean & Katie 13yr and JACK a 5yr old Westie. Fences blown down in the recent storms didn’t deter their adoption although making it a bit costly !
NATHAN (Nile Cruiser) has gained a sort of double family. His real owner is Jean Thomas and he has settled in instantly to his new home but not far away is Jeans’ daughter Madeleine, grandchildren Sarah & Christopher and they all go out walking together with CHARLIE a Dalmation and HATTIE an elderly Bassett.
PURDEY (Purdey) met Ollie a Parsons Jack Russell and his owners Judy & Brian Shore. Both dogs got on famously and luckily Purdey also made a real fuss of Judy & Brian so she is now living happily with them.
Dogs Homed - May/June
TOBY (Best Spark) has found a fantastic home with Collette & Wesley Foote and their sons Lewis and Jorden. New to dog owning and wanting a bitch they actually fell in love with TOBY, (well who wouldn’t!) and he is a perfect family member.
LUCY (Maxilla Miner - Tina) had no sooner arrived but was homed with Karen & Janet Bates and their dogs Zoe, Jaspar, Bonnie, PJ and Jaspar. A special girl for a special home !
HENRY (Dark Star Henry) also needed a very special home & owner as he has quite limited mobility and road walking is not an option. Sarah Bromet found him. An experienced owner with a wonderful garden. He loves his new owner & home & all his new toys.
JACK (Glendon Jack) loved by everyone but still waiting for a home has been adopted by his previous owners. Retired trainers Kevin and Kitty Berwick. Back where he started life and very happy.
EDDIE (Greencourt Eagle) has also found a very happy home with Margaret & Jack Knight and their lovely brindle greyhound Maisie. A bit more lively than her previous Arnie but great to have another canine companion.

MIKE ( Compass Mike) proved such a hit with Jennifer and Richard Green that they came back a few weeks later to home another greyhound;
JAFFA (Safa Toolibuk SAFFA) was their choice. Well in fact Mikes’ choice. He and Jaffa had been kennel mates and they were delighted to see each other again. They are very happy enjoying their new life together with Jennifer and Richard.
