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.

Charlie's arrival and a brief history

Black and white Greyhound
Charlie is a handsome black and white Greyhound who we fostered and re-homed on the 21st September 2008. However, due to a change in family and work circumstances he was returned to us to foster again until he finds his forever home.
Charlie was born on the 12th October 2003 and is house trained, neutered, inoculated and microchipped. He is a very friendly and loving Greyhound who thrives on affection and will make someone a very loyal companion. He loves lots of fuss and attention and at times can get a bit excited when he greets you. He travels well in the car and walks nicely on the lead.
Read Charlie's diary of the first time we fostered him.
Charlie's Diary
6th January 2009
Due to a change in family and working circumstances Charlie was returned to us this morning as his owners could no longer keep him.
As he walked through the door he knew exactly where he was, said hello to the other four Greyhounds in the house, tried to mark his spot a couple of times - to be told 'no' then settled himself on the settee for a nap for a while before joining me upstairs in my office. Charlie is such an affectionate dog and all he wants from life is to be loved and have cuddles. He will make someone a very loyal companion.

12th January 2009
Its nice having Charlie back as I missed him coming to say good morning to me as soon as the alarm clock goes off. Within seconds of it going off he's there by the side of the bed snuggling into me and wagging his tail - what a lovely welcome it is each morning and something I will miss when he goes to a new home.

the others like a 'duck to water'. Last night, although not keen to begin with, he allowed Sadie to cuddle up next to him on the settee and lay her head on his hind quarters as she likes to do.
With having 5 greyhounds at present we feel it too many to take in the pub so this evening we took in Indi and Charlie. We met a Huskie type dog as we walked in and Charlie went over to say hello, then wanted to say hello to everyone in the pub before laying on the carpet by our feet and going to sleep for the duration of our visit.
15th January 2009
This evening another member of Dumfriesshire and Cumbria Greyhound Rescued collected Charlie on his way home from work and Charlie is staying with them this evening before going to his new home in the Barrow-in-Furness area tomorrow morning.
