Sally's arrival and a brief history
Click images for a larger view

Sally is a lovely sweet black Greyhound bitch who was found to be cat friendly when she came into 'Rescue' so has been 'ear marked' for a family in the Kendal area who have a cat called Lucy. Sally has been staying in the Dumfriesshire and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue kennels since she arrived about a week ago and during that time she has been spayed, inoculated and microchipped. We have been asked if we can foster her until her new owners finish work in a couple of weeks for the summer break.

Sally's Diary
6th July 2008

9th July 2008
This afternoon Sally had the three stitches removed from where she had been spayed and stood there as good as gold until they were all removed.
11th July 2008
This afternoon Sally's new owners came to collect her for the weekend and will be bringing her back here Sunday evening so we can look after her again till they finish work for the summer break. When they arrived Sally gave them both a wonderful welcome and happily jumped into the back of the car with them.

18th July 2008
This afternoon Stuart had an appointment close to where Sally is going to live so he took her to her new owners where she gave them a lovely greeting. We only had Sally a very short time but she was a happy, playful and loveable Greyhound whom we shall miss. However, we wish her well in her new home and hope she has a long and happy life with her new owners.
9th August 2008
Received an email this evening from Sally's owner letting us know that she has settled happily into her new home. They say she has a cheeky and humoures side to her, which we noticed when she was staying with us and her new owner and her son are in stitches on a daily basis with Sally's antics.
11th August 2008
Received an email this afternoon from Sally's young owner who says she is very funny and always by their side nudging them for strokes and hugs. He says she is a awesome dog!!
24th September 2008
Received an email this evening letting us know that Sally is doing great. Her owner says she has them wrapped around her paws..... in a adorable way of course! They've never had so many visits from friends and family since Sally became part of the family and all bringing a new toy for her each time they visit!
14th February 2009
This afternoon Sally and her owner called in to collect some dog food that had been left here for her. Sally knew exactly where she was, said hello to the other greyhounds and began to explore the garden. She looked really well and he owner is thrilled to bits with her.
1st September 2010
This evening we did a home check just down the road from where Sally lives. Ironically, Sally's owner phoned asking for some advice just before we left home so she said she would go for a walk in the direction we were going and meet us. We met Sally and her owner along with their other greyhound who I think is called Cass who came to live with Sally and her family last November. We hadn't seen Sally for a while so it was lovely that she remembered us - she looked well and gave us lots of attention, which was nice.
