Dogs welcome, large or small, one or more. A Greyhound haven!

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.

Please ring for an appointment to come and see the greyhounds and have a chat. You are most welcome, but as we run a bed and breakfast it is essential you ring and arrange a date and time to visit.

Become a friend and view Our Profile to see what's happening at the branch and to follow some of our ex-foster greyhounds.

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.

Casey's arrival and a brief history

Black Greyhound
Casey is a black male ex-racing greyhound who was born in October 2006. His present owner says he is a real gentleman who travels well in a car and walks nicely by your side on the lead.
Casey is house trained, neutered, inoculated and microchipped. He is other breed of dog friendly, but a little less tolerant with the small, yappy ones who come at him in his face. Casey is also cat friendly and has recently had a dental.

Casey's Diary
14th October 2012
Casey's owner and trainer arrived this afternoon with him because he wants us to foster Casey until we can find him a nice home. His owner found it difficult to leave him here, but we assured him all would be well and we took some photographs of him while we were waiting for Wendy to arrive who is going to foster him along with her family and their two greyhounds, all of whom will become his companions.
15th October 2012
Wendy sent a text this morning to say Casey is settling in well, is a sweetie and he had a quiet, dry night.
22nd October 2012
Wendy says Casey is getting on grand. Went up to her dads this morning and he had a good run off his lead, came back when she called him and was a very good boy. Bit too cold to go into the water though as some did in the warmer months. He's eating well and is discovering the delights of human food, of course bacon is everyone's favorite!! He won't chew his dentastix or other snacks, but she's sure that will change. He's found his bark and is very exited to meet new people, small dogs he's not so sure of yet but larger ones he's okay with. As to the cat, he's seen Kitten a few time and hasn't chased her, he's not bothered about the cat flap when she comes and goes and she seems quite relaxed coming and going with him around, so Wendy reckons he could be cat friendly with a bit of training.
23rd October 2012
This morning Casey visited the vet where he weighed in at 33k, was given his first inoculation and neutered. All went well and Wendy collected him around 5pm. While under the anaesthetic the vet checked his teeth and gums due to his bad breath. They are not so good, so they put him on a course of antibiotics for his gums and recommended a dental.
24th October 2012
When Wendy took Casey for a short walk this morning he seemed much brighter, he did all his toilet and his stitches are clean and dry.
25th October 2012
Wendy phoned to let us know that Casey's breath is so much better, and he's only been on the antibiotics two days.
30th October 2012
Casey is definately cat friendly and ignores 'Kitten' as she goes in and out the cat flap to and from her bed upstairs. She is eating her food in the kitchen and wandering in the living room, which is a first since Wendy started fostering a few months ago. Kitten obviously doesn't feel that Casey is a threat.
31st October 2012
We heard today that Casey is recovering very well, his breath is sweet thanks to the antibiotics, he seems a lot happier, eating well and chewing his snacks. Wendy thinks his mouth has been very sore, and she has made an appointment to have his neutering stitches out along with his second inoculation on Tuesday.
They have met loads of dogs and he is absolutely fine. He is most definatly cat friendly, kitten as been coming in and out without him bothering, and last night she came into the sitting room with no incident and this morning she had her breakfast inside, first time for about a year!! He just looks at her, and just isn't bothere with her - she seems to know he isn't going to hurt her, he really is a star!
4th November 2012
This morning Wendy took all the dogs around High Newton Reservoir, it was a beautiful day and Casey loved the freedom, but thought the water a little too cold for a paddle!
5th November 2012
Despite Casey being okay with Kitten and most dogs he meets he is very unsure of the bouncy, barky and 'in your face' terriers. The quiet ones he is fine with, but he's not keen on the others!
7th November 2012
The lady who came with her Springer Spaniel and Bedlington Terrier/Whippet a couple of days ago to walk with Casey and for him to meet her dogs visited again today with her husband. Despite the awful weather to go for another walk with Casey and their dogs. All went well despite the awful weather and they asked if Wendy could let them know the result of the dental next Monday.
12th November 2012
Casey visted the vets this morning for his dental. The vet phoned Wendy after the work was complete to let her know they removed 18 teeth and cleaned all the tartar away. All went well and Wendy collected him around 5pm. A little later in the evening when he seemed more bright she gave him a tepid milky/water drink which he enjoyed, then went out to do his toilet and back in to his bed. A little later she gave him some bread and tepid milk. This he loved.
13th November 2012
Casey had a quiet night, with very little blood loss. This morning he's eaten all his breakfast and is happy, bright and lively as if nothing had happened.
The couple who walked Casey last week have asked how he is after his dental and want to arrange another date to visit him as they are quite taken by him and want to get to know him more.
15th November 2012
Wendy sent us a text this morning to let us know that now Casey's mouth is healing he is grand, like a new man!
19th November 2012
This morning Casey visited the vets for a check-up and be weighed. The vet said his mouth was healing well and she was very happy with the way things were going.
1st December 2012
This morning Casey's new owners called in to see Wendy and collect him and Molly, both of whom they were adopting today. On their way past they completed the adoption paperwork and purchased some walking out coats for them. Casey and Molly got on well together while being fostered with Wendy, and we wish them a long and happy life together in their new home with their new family.
23rd December 2013
We received a Christmas card today letting us know that both Casey and Molly are well.
