Sapphire is a small black, cat friendly greyhound who came to us on Friday 5th March 2010 on her way to her new home in this area. She was born on the 12th March 2008 and weighs 24k, is spayed, microchipped and inoculated. Sapphire was once called Blackie but her new owners want to call her Sapphire.
She was a little nervous when she arrived and once all the introductions were made with our greyhounds she explored the garden to do her toilet, then we brought her in and fed her, which she enjoyed.
While she was fed, ours were the other side of the safety gate and after she finished she decided to join them and tried crawling underneath it, but got stuck, panicked and tried to stand taking the gate off the hinges and toppling it towards her. She made a scream and I caught the gate. Other than being shocked she didn't seem to have hurt herself much more than a little nick on the side of her face. As on all 'new dog days' she stayed in the kitchen area where we could keep and eye on her and she could lay on the dog bed near the fire and settle.
Sapphire was recently spayed and still has one stitch remaining but that is disolvable so can be left alone.
During the afternoon her new owners came to see her and take her for a walk. Origionally, we were going to foster her a few days to get her used to family life and commence house training, but her new owners fell in love with her and wanted to take her home with them, which they did. Sapphire is a beautiful little girl and we hope she has a long and happy life in her new home.
