The voluntary work Jenny and Stuart started in July 2004 is a memorial to their darling Penny. Without her coming into their lives none of this would have happened.

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.

Suki's arrival and a brief history

Fawn Greyhound
Suki is a beautiful fawn and white greyhound who is spayed, inoculated and microchipped. Suki is house trained, walks nicely on the lead and travels well in the car.
Suki was re-homed to a family a few weeks ago but came back into Rescue through no fault of her own other than being a little too lively at times, it was just the family circumstances were not quite ready to take on a dog which was a great shame.
Suki's Diary
12th November 2009
This lunch time I called and collected Suki from her new owner who had really struggled to make things work. They'd only had Suki a short while and found it wasn't quite the right time for them to take on a dog and perhaps one not quite so bouncy as Suki.
She happily jumped in the back of our car and settled with Indi for the drive home. Arriving home we introduced her to the others in the garden then brought her in the house, but still on the lead to show her around. As she was quite anxious we tied her lead to the hook in the kitchen near the fire where we placed a dog bed and after a few minutes of watching the others she settled on the bed and went to sleep while we were busy doing our work in the kitchen.
22nd November 2009
Suki was adopted today by her new owner who came and collected her on their way up to the Annual Dumfriesshire & Cumbria Greyhound Rescue Christmas Fayre, which this year was being held at Gretna. Suki's new owner had lost her Dolly at the end of August following a tragic accident and although Suki will never take Dolly's place she will able to give her new owners the love Dolly can no longer give her.
29th December 2009
We received an email today from Suki's new owner enclosing a couple of photographs of her enjoying the snow. They say Suki is doing fine and she liked it when the snow was thick on the ground - she had a good old play!
They took her to the vet this morning because she started nipping the old scar on her side and broke the skin. The vet checked it out and prescribed some steroid cream for her to try for 7 days. After this, if it doesn't stop biting at it she will have to wear an Elizabethen collar to give it chance to heal.
30th April 2012
We received an email this evening letting us know that Suki is keeping well, and she now has a new companion called Johnny. Suki's owner sent us a couple of lovely photos of them on the beach.
29th April 2013
We heard today that Suki is doing fine. She's a very lazy dog - as you can see by this photo of her lying in the mud. She has a run - then finds the nearest cool mud, or pool of water, and lies down! She doesn't run as much anymore - as she's getting older.
Johnny is a smashing dog, and is a bit more friendly than Suki. She can be a bit like having a cat sometimes, but has got more affectionate since Johnny's been living with them. She's learning from him! She's still quite playful, despite getting on a bit - she likes biting/chasing sticks - but never brings then back!!
