A lovely looking English bred dog. Raced at Belle Vue up until March last year.
Myway Longley September 2012
Come on Longley. Time you lived at someone else’s expense.
He needs a forever home in his twilight years, this gentle boy showed lovely manners as he waited for his TIA sausages, walked a treat in the orchard and was so polite as we greeted the horse.
Through no fault of his own he finds himself looking for a forever sofa. He is a very handsome boy.If you look carefully you can see the black love hearts on his coat
We’re currently fostering Gale (6yr old, male) as he wasn’t doing all that well (he was very skinny despite 3 meals a day).
Since being here with us he’s been absolutely great, not a single house accident and he’s been very well behaved with our current grey (6yr old, female). After the first few nights he’s slept through every night since.
He’s a very (VERY) affectionate and gentle dog and just loves to be with people and he’ll reward anyone who strokes him with vigorous cheek puffing. He loves soft toys (especially ones that squeak). He carries his favourite duck around the house at all times.
We’ve taught him stairs and kissing gates and he’s walked through a few fields of sheep beautifully.
At first he pulls a bit on the lead but as he becomes more familiar with walks (and all of the new exciting things to sniff) he settles down a lot.
He’s food motivated (which has been good for training) but doesn’t seem to bother anything he shouldn’t (i.e. our food).
We’ve not had the chance to test him with other dogs (large or small) as of yet although I’d say small furries are almost certainly a no!
Although he’s quite big, he can curl up into the smallest ball to fit next to you on the sofa.
A word from his foster.
Stanley resting and enjoying the warmth after walking in sleet and snow. Ears in usual position! He is improving when he passes other dogs, fine with greyhounds has shared our house with one. Loves people, very affectionate.
Stanley is a lovely older boy, born in 2008. He is on the smaller side for a male. We recently took him out round the local nature reserve where he encountered a couple of smaller breeds. The first was a yappy badly behaved dog and he did react to this, needing a firm hand on the lead. However when we saw another small fluffy dog that was quiet and well mannered he looked but didn’t react. I’m sure that with time he will get used to other breeds and learn to ignore the yappy ones!
He traveled so well in the car, jumped straight into my boot and lay down like such a good lad. He settled into the walk well and was quite good on his lead though I think he will get even better once going on regular walks, a couple of short walks a day should be plenty for this lad and the only other thing that would make his day is a comfy soft bed. So if you’re looking for an older gent with wacky ears then Stan is your man. It’s sad to see them in the kennels, especially at this age.
Former stray of the day. Just look at him now.
Henry is a small black and white greyhound and is 5yrs old. He has been in our home on foster care for about a month after being found as a stray in Sunderland in December.
He has not done anything destructive around the home, or put a foot wrong. He is also a very quick learner. He walks well on both lead, and a heavy duty flexi lead. He did try to run after deer and squirrels while on the flexi lead, and we have not let him off yet. He knows to ask to go out to relieve himself.
He is a very gentle loving dog and has shown no signs of aggression, even when being bullied by our Cairn terrier. He is a dog that loves the company of other dogs, and Pixie our female greyhound is very taken with him. He can seem a little withdrawn when first meeting people outside, but has soon bonded with us, and is very happy around the home, always wagging his tail. Henry likes to help with all the jobs around the house, he is diamond of a dog. He only has half a tail but he certainly knows how to wag it.
Initially he was not sure about toys, but loves them now, pulling them out of our toy basket to have a game. I think anyone who looks into his big soulful eyes will fall for him. Henry is a pleasure to have stay with us, and anyone giving him a forever home will have a much richer life for doing so. He’s a total gent.
His dad is Westmead Hawk we’ll have you know! His Mum wasn’t exactly slow either with an Open race and a few A1′s under her belt.
Gallagher never made the top flight but still didn’t disgrace himself running at Kinsley. The lad ran on eighty one occasions wining fourteen of the them which is a sight more than some of his kennel mates managed. Gallagher has rock solid bragging rights, last racing in September being beaten by Old Age and Treachery!
A lovely name for a lovely dog.
