CAN YOU TEMPORARILY FOSTER A GREYHOUND FOR US?
Fosterers are a valuable part of greyhound rescue in that another greyhound is living life away from the kennels and taking the first steps towards getting used to the family way of life. If you live in the South Lakes or the surrounding area and would like to foster a greyhound until we can find him or her a new home.

Arrived with us on Saturday 10th December 2005 and went to her new home the same day.

Tina had been in foster care for the past six weeks prior to coming here as part of her onward journey to her new home. She was born on the 5th October 2001 so is just 4 years old. She is white and brindle Greyhound who is housetrained, inoculated, spayed and weighs 26.8 kilos.
Tina has a very sweet nature and is good in the house, doesn't mind being left on her own, loves taking things to her bed and if anything goes missing it's best to check there first. At the moment care should be taken around cats and small dogs as she is undergoing a socialisation programme.
Tina's Diary
10th December 2005
When we collected Tina from another Dumfriesshire and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue member at the Tebay Services she happily jumped in our car and lay down in the back all the way home.
Upon getting home we walked her round the garden then she came inside and we awaited the arrival of her new owners and their other Greyhound called Jack. Jack got on instantly with Tina and they quickly settled in the living room together with all the others. It quickly became apparent they were often close to each other and we felt there would get on fine together, Stuart even managed to take a photograph of them sitting on the carpet side by side. When it was time for her to leave she stayed close whilst we said goodbye then happily jumped into the back of her new owner's car along with her new companion, Jack.
Incidentally, Jack is Dixie's father who both came into Greyhound Rescue on the same day.
We later phoned to see how she was and she'd had her tea, been for a walk and was currently laying on Jack's bed.
We only had Tina a very short time but quickly realised she has a lovely nature and we hope she has a long and happy life with her new family in the Barrow-in-Furness area.
31st December 2005
Visited Tina this morning for her follow-up visit and found her fast asleep in her bed with Jack in his next to her. She had just come back from a long walk and slept during most of our visit.
Despite that, she looked well, relaxed and happy. Her new owners are pleased with her and the way she is settling in with them.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TINA - 5 TODAY
28th April 2007
Today we all attended the Barrow-in-Furness Greyhound Awareness Day where we met many Greyhounds re-homed to the area. Tina's owner came over to speak with us saying he wanted to bring Tina and Jack so we could see them again but Tina hadn't been well and he didn't think her well enough to attend. She'd been to the vet who confirmed an infection and had been kept in the vet on a drip overnight before they let her home again. She was now on steroids and she seemed to be getting better but he didn't think she was well enough to attend. It was a shame not to see Tina and Jack as it's been a while since we last saw them but we wish Tina well and wish her a full and speedy recovery.
5th October 2007

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TINA - 6 TODAY
15th October 2007
Received a very sad telephone call this morning from Tina's owner letting us know that she died this morning.
She wasn't well back in April when we attended the Barrow Greyhound Awareness Day and we'd hoped she'd recovered. Since going on the steroids she apparently seemed to recover for a while but there were times when she had trouble with her food.
A couple of days ago she came down with a chest infection and last night she was taken to the vet as an emergency because she was having trouble breathing, so much so the vet thought if she carried on the way she was her heart might not be able to stand it. She went under anaesthetic this morning for a series of blood tests and x-rays to try and find out what the matter was and it was during this examination they discovered a huge cancerous mass in her chest. It was so large it was pushing into her lungs and was displacing her heart. In view of the seriousness, it was felt that under the circumstances it would be best is she wasn't brought round from the anaesthetic and the vets allowed her to pass away.
God be with you little Tina.

In loving memory of Tina
May you rest in peace
and the angels be with you forever
Gone from our midst but not forgotten.

Tina and Jack

Jack

Jack was born on the 2nd July 1999.
He was Jill's father and came into Rescue with her before going to his new home where Tina arrived as his companion.

Jack was a big laid back affectionate gentleman and his owner's best mate.

19th January 2009

This evening we received a call from Jack's owner letting us know that sadly Jack was put to sleep this afternoon - he was 9½ years old.

A few weeks before Christmas Jack began to limp and following tests on the 30th December 2008 an x-ray confirmed bone cancer in his back leg. His owner knew he wouldn't have him long and although since then it's only been a limp, this morning it was much worse. He was panting heavily, obviously in a great deal of pain and when he tried to stand up he kept falling over. His owner decided to take him to the vet where it was felt the cancer had taken hold much quicker than expected so he was put to sleep.

In loving memory of Jack
who is now with his darling Tina.
Rest in peace gentleman Jack with no more pain - you're love will remain with us for ever as will your kindness.
