ARE YOU ABLE TO 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.

Ryan

Ryan arrived on Sunday 23rd June 2013
Went to his new home on Wednesday 10th July 2013.
Sadly Ryan was returned on the 26th July 2013 because he found
the busy town environment a little too much for him so soon after leaving the kennels.
Went to his new forever home on Saturday 18th January 2014


Ryan's arrival and a brief history

Black Greyhound
Ryan is a lovely black ex-racing greyhound who is covered in white flecks. Born on the 20th November 2009 he weighs 30.55k, and is house trained, neutered, inoculated and microchipped.
Ryan has been living in our house for quite a while now because he is quite shy and reserved when he first meets people. He will give you the sad, sorrowful, 'you are not going to hurt me look', so living in the house ensures he meets more people. Please don't be put off by this because given time, love and affection he will become a vey loyal, friendly and happy companion as he has done here. He loves fruit and vegetables - quite partial to tomatoes, sprouts,
.
pineapple, banana, strawberries, apples and raspberries. He enjoys running around the garden, exploring, playing and 'smiling' when he comes to greet us. He knows his name and he's a super dog who is okay with other breeds of dogs. Ryan walks nicely on the lead and travels well in a car, but he can be a bit of a thief when it comes to food if the opportunity arises.
Ryan went to his new home shortly after he arrived but found the busy town environment a little too much for him so soon after leaving the kennels. As a result he was returned because his new owner was concerned for his well-being.


Went to his new forever home on Saturday 18th January 2014

Ryan's Diary
* The branch kennel at the bottom of our garden is where Ryan and the other resident(s) will be for the first day or so until he gets to know the other greyhounds. He has use of our garden and paddock, and once he gets to know the other dogs he will be allowed in the house during the day and all the dogs will then take it in turn to sleep in the house at night, so they become use to sleeping in both the kennel and the house.

23rd June 2013


24th June 2013
With Troy going to the vets today to be neutered we allowed Ryan to meet the other greyhounds from the house because we didn't want him in the kennel on his own all day. He met them one at a time and was fine with them. Within minutes he was mingling with them all exploring the garden then began coming in and out the house.
We had one accident in the house, but as I never saw who it was, it may have been Ryan, or it may not have been - it was a 'marking the spot' incident and I 'growled' at them all while cleaning it up.
To say how quiet he was yesterday and wary of everyone, he's certainly come out of his shell today. He's been much more relaxed and we had no trouble from him with the exception he's a bit of a thief! We very quickly learnt to put everything edible well out of his reach or it would disappear.
When Troy arrived back from the vets around 8.00pm with Rossi, who had been there for a dental we put Ryan back in the kennel to keep Troy company. A little later I fed Troy so I made a tiny exta meal for Ryan so he wouldn't feel left out. This he enjoyed.
25th June 2013
This morning it was Ryan's turn to go to the vet and be neutered and given his first inoculation as he came with no paperwork. He weighed in at 30.55k. In the waiting room he stood next to a miniature daschund and ignored it, likewise a cat in a basket about 2' away.
3rd July 2013
We went for a meal out this evening with friends and decided to take Ryan with us because we had to take Lena as she whines for a while when we go out and we had bed and breakfasts guests staying. Ryan walks lovely on the lead, enjoyed the trip in the car and they both lay down in the back as good as gold while we were in the restaurant. We were lucky because we managed to park the car right outside so we could keep an eye on them.
On the way home we stopped off at a local pub and took Ryan in. He did his toilet before going in and once in he was super. He stood for a while watching what was going on then lay down and relaxed until we went home. Back home he went in the garden then slept in the house overnight.
4th July 2013
Ryan was as good as gold last night in the house and settled on the dog bed by my side of the bed.
He is still quite a thief when it comes to food, but a sharp 'Ah, Ah' when he goes to get anything is usually enough to make him back off, which it wouldn't have done when he first arrived.
9th July 2013
Ryan visited the vets again today to have his neutering stitches removed and be given his second inoculation. He weighed in at 29K.
10th July 2013
This afternoon Ryan went off to his new home where we hope he will have a long and happy life. We later received an email saying he was settling in nicely and enclosing a photo of him laying on his new bed.
26th July 2013
Although Ryan was shy meeting new people he enjoyed our garden and seemed happy. However, when he went to his new home it was a new environment, and one he was not sure of, so much so, he didn't want to leave the house until the evening when it was quieter, which proved difficult for his elderly owner. After a number of chats on the phone, it was deemed in Ryan's best interest he come back here to give him chance to settle and get used to the hussle and bustle of everyday life and for us to find him a new home.
During our chats, the owner of Lucky phoned to ask if we could take her back. Their relationship had deteriorated and the decision was made to split up, but neither could take Lucky. Lucky was the perfect companion for Ryan's present owner so we decided to swap the dogs. It was perfect. Lucky took to her new home and owner like a 'duck to water' and Ryan, although back in the kennel when he returned here due to lack of space in the house felt much happier.
24th September 2013
Ryan is slowly becoming more brave meeting strangers. At one time he would stay quite a way away from them and go nowhere near. This past week he came in the conservatory with the others to meet some families wishing to re-home a greyhound. He looked rather uncertain, and kept his eye on me during periods he felt unsure, but all in all he did very well and allowed one or two people to stroke him, making sure I was still around.
A couple of our bed and breakfast guests also told us that he's been coming to the balcony fence to say a tentative hello. He'll get there, he just needs a little time.
31st December 2013
Nigel arrived again today to walk some of the dogs, and on one of the trips he took Maisie with Ryan. When Nigel arrived Ryan gave him a wonderful welcome, went down on his front legs to play, barked and his tail went round and round in circles with happiness.
Ryan was eager to get his lead on and enjoyed his walk. This time he was very alert, loved his banana, and upon his return Nigel commented upon what a different dog he was to even a couple of weeks ago when he first started walking him.
2nd January 2014
Today when Hazel and Nigel came to walk the dogs Ryan gave them a very bouncy and playful greeting.
18th January 2014
This afternoon Nigel and Hazel came to walk the dogs then to complete the adoption paper work and take Ryan home with them. When they arrived it was as if Ryan knew what was happening and went straight to them looking lovingly into their eyes. It was then that Nigel admitted he had fallen for Ryan the first moment he set eyes on him all those weeks ago when he first asked if he could walk the dogs. His comment of "we don't want another dog for at least a year" had fallen on 'stoney ground' because Ryan had different ideas! Once all the aoption paperwork was complete Ryan walked happily off to his new home where we hope they will all have a long and happy life together.
19th January 2014
This evening we received an email letting us know Rian was settling in and currently fast asleep in his new bed!
13th March 2014
We heard today that Rian is absolutely wonderful, and has settled in with his new owners beautifully, and discovering a new world,
27th March 2014
This morning we heard that Rian is in the vets today having a dental. Hope all goes well and he's feeling okay again.
9th April 2014
This afternoon Rian called in with his owner to see Popo who he will be living with. They all went off for a walk together to see how they got on, and went well.
24th April 2014
Rian has become quite taken with his new companion Popi, as she is now called, and thinks she is wonderful. He thinks she's the 'best thing since sliced bread' and has become very playful with her.
26th May 2014
We received some photos today of Rian and Popi who are both looking happy and well. Their new owners say they are both doing just great, despite Popi thinking it's time to get up at 5.30am, Rian is not best pleased ! Rian has really come out of his shell now and Popi has taken a shine to the two draft excluders, which she carries around !
