Bobby is a large, black male greyhound. He is five years old and has been waiting for his new home for a long time. He has no vices at all, he is just big. Unfortunately, this seems to be enough to be his downfall for rehoming.

Please try to look beyond this sweet boy’s size – he is an absolutely lovely dog.

UPDATE June 2011: Bobby has been re-homed and is no longer available.

Lystol is a beautiful, happy, blue and white dog, five and a half years old. He’s a truly lovely natured boy – a real gentle giant – and anyone who meets him will surely fall in love with him!

Lystol is already house-trained.

UPDATE – 5th December 2010: Lystol has now been rehomed and is no longer available.

In April 2010, poor Henry had an accident and shattered his foot so badly that it could not be mended. After consultation with a specialist greyhound vet, it was decided that the best option for him was to lose the leg, so Henry is now a ‘tripod’.

Henry has now healed well and is finding his confinement with nothing to do rather boring.

He is a happy, energetic young dog and really needs to be out of a kennel environment and in a home where he can enjoy a little more freedom to build his strength and release some of his pent-up energy. He loves to be with people and will enjoy playtime and daily walks – not too far at first, but with gradual extension, he will be able to hop along comfortably for a mile or so, maybe a little more. Tripods do get tired more quickly than four-leggers, so his new adopters will have to be willing to condition him very slowly, and always keep an eye on him, remembering to take the return journey into account when deciding how far to walk him.

Henry is NOT cat safe.

He seems to be shedding his coat right now, so there are some brown fluffy patches on him, but he will end up a lovely clean white and shiny black. Here is Henry’s earlier photo, taken less than two weeks after his amputation –

Please consider Henry if you are looking for a young dog who will never need a huge amount of leash walking, especially if you can give him some freedom in a garden to play and run a little.

UPDATE June 2011: Henry has now been adopted and is no longer available.

Lovely Leroy is a large lad, but he’s very quiet and a little shy. He’s a basically happy dog, but he can be a nervous until he knows someone, and because of his shyness will need a quiet laid-back household. He might perhaps suit a retired couple, or a family without energetic children.

UPDATE OCTOBER 2010: Leroy has now been adopted and is no longer available.
