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.

Prince's arrival and a brief history
Click images for a larger view
Black and white greyhound
Prince is a lovely white and black Greyhound who was born on the 15th August 2007 making him just 2 years old. He is house trained, neutered, inoculated and microchipped. He is a very sensitive dog who walks nicely on the lead, travels well in the car, loves children and is friendly towards other dogs.
Prince's Diary
10th October 2009
Stuart collected Prince this morning and they arrived home around 11.30am. to be greeted in the garden by the others. A walk around the garden to allow him to do his toilet then he came in the house where we showed him around downstairs. As we didn't know whether he'd been fed or not we gave him some food, which he ate, then it was back in the garden to do more toilet.
We think Prince is a very sensitive little boy as he shys away from the others if they give him a grumble so as to set the pack order, comes in close to us for cuddles and gives us a sad look if he does something wrong as if he's saying sorry.
We've only had him a short while but he's already proving to be a real cutie who you could just sit and cuddle all day long and he would love every minute of it.
11th October 2009
Prince settled well last night but he started wandering around about 4am so we took him out on the lead to do his toilet. Having done that he settled again until our alarm clock went off at 7am.

After he'd had his breakfast we let him in the garden off the lead and once he'd done his toilet he came running back inside the house. Going up stairs isn't a problem but coming down is a different matter. Even with a guiding hand and a push off the top step he anchored himself to

the steps and refused to work his legs so Stuart and I worked them for him until he reached the bottom. He wasn't too sure of that! Half an hour later he was up them again and like I said to him 'If you insist on coming up you have to learn to go down again'. A guiding hand holding his collar, my body along his side leaning him into the wall and my other arm scooped around his back end to get his off each step we went down the stairs again - he had no other choice! He actually took a couple of steps on his own and with lots of praise as we were going down and a huge cuddle when he got to the bottom he walked off for a lay down in the living room. By lunch time he found his place on the settee!
This afternoon we took them all for a walk along the 'back' road with Lennie and his owners who had called in to see us and buy Lennie a new coat for the winter. As we passed the farm gate Prince saw the cat in the yard, which he ignored. To make sure he'd seen it Stuart walked back to the gate again and waited, giving Prince a good chance to watch it - he ignored it! A little further along the road as we walked around the corner of the pub there were two small Spaniels and a Labrador puppy off the lead within yards of us. Prince showed no interest in them other than to look. He never pulled on his lead nor altered his step and we thought 'wow, we've got and easy one at last!' - lets enjoy his company whilst be can because he's so nice he won't be with us long. On our way back we all went in the pub where Lennie's owner gave them all some crips, which Prince enjoyed. The coming and goings in the pub never bothered him although he wasn't keen on laying down with the others and was happy to stand near to anyone who would make a fuss of him.
15th October 2009
This morning we took Prince to the vet wher he had his 2nd inoculation bringing them now up to date.
18th October 2009
Prince still hasn't mastered going up the stairs. He will insist on moving his front legs too far in front of his back ones so
his balance is all wrong and he freezes (or 'shuts down' as it's called) half way up the stairs. As a result we have to move his back legs nearer his front ones then move his front ones to get him going again. With a lot of encouragement and us moving his legs he will move but you can tell he's glad when he's at the top. Coming down is no problem for him other than his legs go all over the place and not compact like the others. Most of our Greyhounds master the stairs in a day or so with watching the others run up and down but not Prince - he just freezes half way up and won't move either way until we help him. I think one day he was there about five minutes before we realised he was there and needed our help.
20th October 2009
Prince has at last mastered the stairs and now runs up and down them with no problem.
2nd November 2009
This afternoon we took Prince over to see a friend who has cats so we could do a 'cat test'. During the visit he saw three cats and from his behaviour we came to the conclusion he was cat friendly.
7th November 2009
This morning after breakfast Stuart drove Prince to junction 38 of the M6 whereby he met the same members of Dumfriesshire and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue who brought Prince to us. They were going to drive Prince north towards Scotland where he will be living with a family who have just lost their Greyhound to a stroke. Prince was chosen because they have a cat and from the way he reacted to the cats we introduced him to the other night indicates he will soon get used to their cat and become the best of friends.
Prince was a delight to have because of his attitude towards life, play and other dogs. We shall sorely miss him not being around and we hope he has a long and happy life in his new home.
