ARE YOU ABLE TO 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.

Barry's Diary
5th May 2007
We met Barry this morning at the Greyhound Awareness day in Penrith and because he was coming back with us we looked after him during the day so he could get to know our Greyhounds before going in the car and coming home with them. He seems quite a quiet little dog who gets on okay with people and other dogs and kept coming to us for a cuddle and reassurance. He travelled well in the car on the way back and once home we walked him round the garden to do what he wanted to do.
Barry ate his dinner fine then we took him for a walk, which he enjoyed and walked nicely on the lead up the back road. When we got home we put them all back in the car and went to the pub for an hour. We had five Greyhounds in the pub this evening and Barry once realised there was nothing to worry about lay on the floor and went to sleep.
Back home he was a little anxious, was panting a bit and kept coming to us for reassurance and cuddles, which wasn't really surprising because we came back from Penrith with 3 new foster Greyhounds so it was a bit chaotic and they all stayed on their leads in the house to prevent them pacing about. Barry knows the command 'go down' because when we sat in the living room to watch television he lay down when we used the command.
6th May 2007
It was quite a task sorting out 3 new foster Greyhounds last night and to stop them wandering around upstairs and disturbing Bobby and Indi we shut them in our bedroom and used the cold water spray to persuade them to stay in their beds. Once there we never heard a word from them till the morning when Barry came to tell us he wanted out. Stairs don't appear to be too much of a problem but he needs to be on the lead coming down a few times to slow him down as he reaches the bottom.
Barry presently has some baldness on both his hips and a pink scar on the top of his nose which we think has been caused by a muzzle rubbing, however, give a few weeks and the mark on his nose should be less noticeable and hopefully the baldness on his hips will disappear.
He ate his breakfast well and after we walked them all round the garden to do what was needed we let the new ones off the lead in the kitchen but shut the doors so we could get our breakfast. After Barry had eaten he was a different dog because he wanted to play with the others, looked much happier and started jumping up to us to say hello.
Mid morning Barry's potential new owners arrived with their two year old chocolate labrador. They wanted to introduce both dogs and if they got on then they were going to take Barry home with them. They both met in the garden, had a sniff at each other and that was it. Barry went a little quiet again at first but came out of his shell and began to bond with the gentleman because by the time they left he was looking much happier and trying to jump up to him to say hello. Lead on and he was ready to go. He happily went with them and jumped in their car with their labrador and off he went to his new home where we hope he will have a long and happy life.
7th May 2007
Received a call from Barry's new owners this evening letting us know he was getting on fine and they are really pleased with him. He was a little quiet yesterday, which we all expected but this morning he awoke a different dog and has been happily greeting them and getting on okay with their chocolate labrador.

14th May 2007
Received an email this evening saying all was well with Barry and they are pleased to find that two people, two dogs and a few doggy toys happily fit on the bed at the same time! There has been one incident when the dogs were left so their owner could nip to the shop to find upon her return a Barry sized head hole in the wooden blinds as she'd forgotten to open them before she went out. She hopes it's a 'one off' and must remember to open the blinds in future so he doesn't feel locked in and can look out.
1st June 2007
Received an email this evening from Barry's new owners saying he's doing great and he's a star.
