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.

Black Greyhound
Jack is a handsome black ex-racing greyhound who was born on the 1st August 2009. He is a gentle lad who weighs 32.35k.
Jack is neutered, inoculated, microchipped and recently had a dental to remove a bad tooth. He has a lovely nature, is very laid back, is okay with other breeds of dogs, walks nicely on the lead and travels well in the car.

Went to his forever home on Friday 31st October 2014

Jack's Diary
1st September 2014
Jack arrived this afternoon. All the other greyhounds were in the house so we let him have a wander around the garden to see what was what. After a few minutes we let one of our dogs in the garden, and both said hello to one another.
Over a period of time we introduced all 7. Our Sandy, who is 11 years old gave him a growl and snarl telling him to watch his step to which Jack simply turned his head away in a submissive gesture. He did the same to Becky who is 10 years old and who also gave him a grumble, he turned his head away the same acknowledging his place. Nero needed a water spray when he grumbled because he's too young to do that and should know his place, which is near the bottom of the pack, not the top!
Once they'd all met and the excitement of a new dog arriving they all wandered off so we put Jack and Lizzy in the kennel till tea time. Once they had both been fed they settled again in the kennel for the evening and into the night.
2nd September 2014
This morning Jack went off to the vets to be neutered where he weighed in at 32.35k. In the vets he met a couple of other dogs in the waiting room and ignored them.
All went well with his operation and we collected him in the early evening and brought him home. As he is so good, and a gentle giant with a lovely sweet nature we decided to let him sleep in the house tonight with all the other dogs. He found himself a bed and settled to sleep off his ordeal, and ate some food a little later before settling in our bedroom for the night.
5th September 2014
Jack was funny this evening, the big television in the living room was on and an advert appeared containing some dogs. Jack was fascinated by it and was following the dogs around the screen when one of them, a Golden Retriever,came running towards him. With a surprised look on his face he backed away, which was quite funny. The advert then progressed to showing a close-up of one of the dog's faces, which to Jack was bigger than life size, he was shocked and ran off to hide behind the settee. The next thing Stuart saw was Jack peeping over the back of the settee to see if 'that big dog' had gone. Just wish I'd been there to see it, Stuart said it was just so funny to see.
6th September 2014
We phoned the vets this morning and booked Jack in for his dental. I hadn't really noticed it before, but his mouth smells like a pig sty where that bad looking tooth is. Now he's been neutered and all is okay we feel he is ready to get those teeth sorted and that bad one removed, so its all planned for next week..
19th September 2014
This afternoon Jack went off to his new home where we hope he will have a long and happy life with his new owner who sadly lost Jazz to old age recently.
29th September 2014
When we phoned this morning to enquire how Jack was settling in his new home, his owner said he was settling in well. She said he had a lovely nature and was quite a character - he is a bit of a thief and pinched her donuts. He took one off the coffee table when she went to answer the door bell and the other he took by sliding open the drawer where she kept it. All said, his new owner said he was a real gentleman and she was very happy with him.
