Mad not bad is how his dad describes him. Sadly his mom is poorly and they can no longer care for this huge, daft lad. He originally came to us as a puppy. (Wendy you called him Ollie).  So here is is looking for a home again. He will need training as he jumps up, a lot. He has good points too. He has lived very happily these last two years with little dogs and a cat….Form an orderly queue….

Handsome black male in good condition with lovely clean teeth.

On a recent socialising trip out Francis was well behaved. He settled down immediately in the car and remained lay down for the short journey to and from the nature reserve.

Initially he was happy to be out and soon settled on his lead.

On our trip we saw a west Ireland white and a Yorkshire terrier, both of these dogs were well behaved and on their leads. Francis, like many greyhounds hasn’t seen other breeds before, but he did not lunge or react to them in fact he was actually easily distracted. Francis will need ongoing gentle introduction to other breeds and in the meantime we will continue to work with him. Missie (L) Francis (R)Missie and Francis

What a star, this dog is beautiful. Petite, steady and very calm, good on the lead. She is in good condition and has beautiful teeth.

Due to her old racing injuries, Missie will not need much exercise. She is such an unassuming dog who deserves her forever sofa, she will make someone a lovely pet, a proper little sweetie. We have seen small dogs whilst out with her and she did not show any interest to them though they were well behaved little dogs on their leads. As with many of the greyhounds ongoing gentle socialisation is required.


Lily recently joined us for a trip out from the kennels to help with her socialisation and on returning she was very reluctant to go back in her kennel, another little black cutie who craves to be in her forever home.

She has very good teeth and is petite. Needs to get used to lead walking. Whilst Lily was out we saw a small puppy that was on a lead which she was fine with as it passed us by.

Another beautiful natured dog here at Tia.


Boomer is a handsome brindle boy in very good condition. He settled well in the car when we recently took him out. He will need ongoing gentle introductions to other breeds of dogs, whilst on his socialising trip we encountered a small dog off the lead which he did look at but wasn’t vocal towards or excitable around.

Boomer is a lovely calm boy waiting patiently for his forever home.

Tia Social Sunday Walk: Sunday 7th May

Nostell Priory and Parkland,
Doncaster Road,

Please come and join us with your hounds on our next walk in the beautiful grounds of Nostell Priory.
Meet at 11.00am in the first car park on the right as you come in.
Please note a car parking fee of £3 for the day does apply. The walk is expected to last around 40 mins but there are opportunities to depart back to the car sooner if you don’t want to walk this far. If anyone would like to take a kennel dog then they would be welcome to but please arrange this in plenty of time with Deb. This is a lovely picturesque walk that I’m sure all owners and hounds will thoroughly enjoy. Hope to see you there! Cheers, Amy
