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.

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.

Sly's arrival and a brief history
Click images for a larger view

Sly - Black greyhound
Sly is a handsome black ex-racing greyhound who was born in March 2010 and weighs 36k. He is housetrained, inoculated and microchipped, walks nicely on the lead, fine with children and other breeds of dogs and ignores cats and pheasants when he sees any while out walking.
This photo was taken of him as it was going dark and beginning to rain, but you can see what a handsome fella he is!
Now in foster care he has been neutered and given a booster inoculation in readiness for going to his new home.

Went to his new home on Saturday 11th January 2014

Sly's Diary
2nd January 2014
This afternoon Sly arrived, and upon departing his current owner and trainer was almost in tears at leaving him. Finding himself parted from his owner Sly was a little stressed at first then quite nervous in the house to begin with before he settled.
Once settled Sly became a really happy dog and constantly wagged his tail.
This evening because we'd promised to go to the pub along the road with some of our bed and breakfast guests we thought it best to take Sly with us. In the pub he ignored a fluffy, bouncing Spaniel and was generally good, although a little anxious at times, which is to be expected.
Back home and time for bed Sly began to whimper. He didn't want to go in the crate as some like, so he slept by my side of the bed boxed in with the bedding box to stop him wandering.
3rd January 2014
Once settled by my side of the bed Sly had a good night.

4th January 2014


11th January 2014
This afternoon Sly's new owners arrived and he remembered them from their previous visit while he was still with his previous owner/trainer. He gave them a lovely welcome and once all the paperwork was complete he jumped in the back of his car and off he went to his new forever home where we hope he will have a long and happy life.
1st September 2016
Sly, his companion Willow and their owners came to stay at the bed and breakfast and when they arrived home they sent me some photographs taken while in our guest's garden.
8th September 2016
This morning we heard that Sly and Willow had been out for a good run today. They both had a swim in the lake, Sly just jumped in and Willow followed. Their owners said they had two very tired dogs now who would no doubt sleep until tea time! They've both had a good run.
