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.

Popo's arrival and a brief history

White Greyhound
Popo is arriving soon and is potentially reserved. She is a beautiful white ex-racing greyhound who has a little blue around her ears. Born on the 22nd April 2007.
Popo looks like a 'show dog' who is about 2 years old. She weighs 27.5k, is house trained, has no agression whatsoever, is good with children, travels well in the car and from what we have been told she is okay with other breeds of dogs. She may pull a litle when she sees them but this is because she wants to say hello, and will stay by your side if told to do so.

Popo's Diary
7th April 2014
This lunch time while we were collecting the other foster dogs left in the kennels while we were at the Retired Greyhound Conference we also picked up Popo.
She travelled well in the van and once home she went in the garden to do her toilet then followed us in the house where she soon settled on one of the dog beds.
9th April 2014
This afternoon Popo's potential new owner called with Rian who she will be living with, and took her for a walk to see how they all got on . All went well and we were asked if they could change her name to Popi, and for us to start calling her that while she was still with us.
14th April 2014
This morning Popi visited the vets for her booster inoculation and where she weighed in at 26.2k. They spayed her and at the same time removed the small wart on her side. The vet also mentioned she needed a dental and this we will get done once she's recovered from her spaying operation.
While the vets were spaying her they found she had some milk, possibly the result of a phantom pregnancy. They gave her something to dry her milk up and placed a bandage over her stitches, which they will remove when her stitches are removed.
When she arrived home she felt really sorry for herself and did a few little whimpers. We tried to make her comfortable and a little later tried her with some food, which she didn't want.
15th April 2014
Once settled and the lights switched off we didn't hear a sound from Popi until this morning when we let all the dogs out. She followed and did her toilet before coming back inside and back to bed while we started our bed and breakfast work.
She wasn't overly fussed about eating anything this morning and remained quiet and reserved most of the day. This evening she could have some Metacalm and she became a bit brighter after that.
18th April 2014
The plaster is still on Popi's stitches and she's had Metacalm each morning. She is now feeling a lot better and joining in with all the other dogs as they wander round the garden, or go to the gate to meet anyone who may be calling.
Before Popi was spayed she liked to get on our bed where she stayed cuddled in the throw, with her head on the pillow until we spotted her, then it was 'off', and back on the floor. We noticed a couple of round patches on the bed cover, which we thought was a widdle, but it didn't seem the right colour and not enough. Now we think it may have been the milk she was holding. Anyway, since she's been spayed she's not attempted to get on the bed and I've seen no dribbled patches on anything else, so hopefully if it was her milk, it's now drying up.B
19th April 2014
The couple who were origionally going to adopt Popi on the 28th May decided they wanted her earlier and could they have her today. They called round this lunch time and off Popi went to her new home where we hope she will have a long and happy life.
24th April 2014
We heard today that Popi had her spay and the wart stitches removed today and all went well. The vet also examined her back left foot where a pad close to the nail has become slightly inflamed. Her new owners had been bathing it with diluted Hibiscrub to help keep it clean and the vet prescribed a course of antibiotics for her. Those will also help her mouth prior to her having her dental, which has been arranged for next Thursday (1st May).
Other than her trip to the vets today she is fine and eating well. Rian thinks she is wonderful 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 !
