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.

Ted's arrival and a brief history

Black Greyhound
Ted is a lovely black ex-racing greyhound who weighs in the region of 32k. He was born on the 3rd July 2009. From what we've been told he is very soft, has a nice nature, is a very friendly lad who loves being cuddled and rarely barks. He walks nicely on the lead and travels well in the car.

Ted's Diary
* The branch kennel at the bottom of our garden is where Ted 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.

18th July 2013
Ted was one of four greyhounds who arrived this afternoon. Each one was brought in the garden, given Frontline on the back of their neck near the shoulder blades for fleas, which is normal practice for the branch and put in one of the sections in the kennel. There was a fan in there to help move the air around as it was a very warm day and an insectecutor was hanging from the bar just outside the kennel door to attract any unwanted insects.
Once all four dogs were dealt with we gave them some food. Ted liked his, and after we left them to settle into their new surroundings while I continued my bed and breakfast work.
31st July 2013
This afternoon Ted's new owner called to complete all the adoption paperwork and re-home Ted. When she arrived he gave her a lovely welcome and when it was time to go he happily walked down the drive to her car with her.
Ted's new companion, Poppy the lurcher didn't come this time, and she is going to meet Ted for a walk when he arrives at his new home.
Ted was a lovely lad and we are going to miss him, but we hope he has a long and happy life with his new family.
17th August 2013
We received an email today with an update on Teddy’s progress of settling down with Poppy and his new owner.  Well after a couple of mishaps of him trying to water her aspidistra, he is now house trained.  He has settled down with Poppy and they have shared the same bed once, but she has let him know that she is boss when he tried to take her teddy off her, just a growl but enough to let him know.  He now responds to his name and learning the word no!  He still walks out with his muzzle as he is unsure of small dogs and I would rather be safe than sorry.  It is all very new to him and give him time she thinks he will be okay. She says he is a lovely boy but he does suffer with very bad breath!!!  She has looked at his teeth and they are good, so she is going to give him some plaque and gum liquid, which she puts in his water to see if that helps.
We often find that when they come direct from kennels their breath is often not good, but once on a proper diet with chews things settle down. Let's hope this is the case with Ted otherwise he may need a dental.
