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.
please contact Jenny or Stuart

Sally's Diary

7th August 2012

Pat phoned today to say they just can't handle Sally. Last night she chased a cat who wandered into the garden, and jumped the wall into the next door neighbour's garden, but couldn't get out because the walls and fencing were higher. She is pulling on the lead when out walking and jumping in the air in circles when she sees other dogs, is a bundle of nervous energy and not settling in the house at all, when in the crate to give everyone peace she is barking to get out and her stools are very, loose. All this is nerves, very similar to how Sadie was when she first arrived. Sally is finding coming from kennels into the big outside world too hard to handle at the moment and needs re-habilitating the same way we did with Sadie.
We would have taken her here and worked on her had we not had Marshal who is still very sexed up and now being neutered isn't stopping him. It's going to take a while for his hormones to settle and putting such a nervous female just coming out of season into our home with him is a definate no, no at the moment. As a result, I phoned the West Cumbria branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust and explained the situation, and they are going to take her in, settle her and find her a new home. You never know, she may even come back here if the pack balance is suitable for her and she hasn't found a home direct from the kennels.
With Pat visiting relatives tomorrow who are not far from the kennels she arranged with them to take Sally while in the area.
8th August 2012
This morning Pat took Sally to the West Cumbria branch kennels and saw her settled in. She happily walked into the kennels where there was a large pen, and she was fine. They let another dog in with her and she was as 'happy as Larry', after a few minutes Pat went to say goodbye to her and Sally didn't want to know. She was led to he her new kennel and happily walked alongside the gentlemand and the other dog not even glancing back at Pat.
Under the circumstances and the way Sally responded to being back in a kennel we all feel this is best for her at the moment as she feels safe there. She will be spayed when the time is right and helped to socialise with the 'big outside world' and found a new home when the time is right and the right one comes along. Sally is a lovely, small, pretty white and black girl who will melt someones heart when the time is right.
We shall not forget Sally and will ask of her progress in the kennels from time to time, and if she isn't re-homed and the dogs here are the right ones to help her we shall have her back to foster.
