This is Bo, a pretty eight year old black girl.

Bo is quite dainty and small, and she is quiet and shy, but she soon gets past that once she gets to know you. She likes the quiet life.

She is an older greyhound, but please don’t discount her because of that. There is plenty of life left in this sweet girl!

UPDATE August 2015: Bo has now been adopted and is no longer available.

UPDATE July 2016:
Appey has now become one of Brambleberry’s permanent (pet) house dogs and is no longer available.

This is Appey – mistakenly labelled ‘Fearnley’ in an earlier post.

Appey is ten years old. She is a lovely girl, still full of life and loves her walks. She has had some teeth removed so will probably need a soft diet. Appey is house-trained.

Kasco is one of Brambleberry’s long-staying seniors. He is ten years old (eleven in June 2015) and is now considered unadoptable for various reasons, including temperament.

He is a pretty fawn boy, and he has ‘eyebrows’ which always give them such an expressive face. He is a happy boy, always wagging his tail, even though he has been through a lot.

UPDATE: Kasco is no longer available due to age and illness, but Brambleberry would be very grateful to accept donations towards his living expenses. He will always have a home here, until such time as a vet recommends that he is no longer able to enjoy life.

(Update 11th June 2017) Kasco is sadly no longer with us.

This is Whiskey, one of the three dogs returned when their owner sadly died.

Whiskey is male, brindle, and ten years old. He, like his pack-mates, is finding it very difficult to settle in kennels again after a long time in a home. He is good with other dogs and already house-trained.

It would be great to rehome all three dogs together, but Whiskey is available on his own. He and Texas are the more bonded, having lived together for longest, so if anyone could take them as a pair, that would be fantastic.

UPDATE March 2012 – Whiskey has now been adopted and is no longer available

Poor April has been overlooked so many times over the years that she has become a permanent resident here at Brambleberry, and Hero’s kennel companion. Her only fault is that she has a deformed leg, but it would take a very special person indeed be given permission to adopt her, and at eight years old, it becomes less and less likely as time passes.

If you would like to help with April’s food and medical expenses, please click on the ‘donate’ button. And many thanks for helping one of our permanent residents!

UPDATE (July 2010): April struck lucky! She is now being fostered long-term by a very experienced owner, in a home with two other sighthounds, where she has settled well and is very happy. Her medical expenses are still being paid by Brambleberry, so she will continue to be a sponsor dog.

UPDATE (August 2010): April has now been permanently rehomed and is no longer available.
