Gale

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.

We really hope he can find his forever home some time soon. Please contact Deb at Tia if you think you could be that home.

Seanies Hero raced at Pelaw Grange and then went on to the flapping circuit.

Stanley – Appeal 9 years old

_DSF1708Francis201702071_DSF1731Francis201702071_DSF1748Francis201702071IMG_0380

 

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.

Henry

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAChuck

 

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.

Bobby Fawn

In danger of being here for ever. Needs a greyhound savvy owner as he keeps blowing it.

Beautiful. No slouch either, Bobby Fawn was born in Ireland and raced at Peterborough.

Riley

RileyRiley

Typical lurcher upside down on the sofa!
Riley is good with children, sits and shakes a paw wants to cuddle up as though he is a small terrier. He provably isn’t the brightest button in the box but very loving. It is just when he sees a cat, squirrel or rabbit he goes into another zone so no small furries and as he weighs in at 34 kilos perhaps someone who can keep him  out of trouble.

Gallagher

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.

Jack

Yes the wanderer returns through no fault of his own.. We love Jack so much we were quite pleased to see him.

Little bull cross who came in looking like a bag of bones with skinny Jill back in December. Now sporting a set of rippling muscles.
