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.

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

Tillie is a small black ex-racing greyhound who was born on the 10th August 2008 and weighs 22.5k, She is house trained, spayed, inoculated and microchipped.
Tillie although very shy when she first arrived is now coming out of her shell. She is starting to play, likes men, has a lovely, friendly nature, but needs a lot of loving and re-assurance at the moment. She likes to know where you are, and when you are not around she feels more at ease in her crate because it gives her security. She walks fantastic on the lead, travels well in the car and ignores other dogs when out walking

Went to her new home on Friday 11th April 2014 .

Tillie's Diary

* The branch kennel at the bottom of our garden is where Tillie 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.

24th February 2014
Tillie and Lucy both arrived this afternoon, and after a wander around the garden we put them both in the kennel to settle after their jouney.
25th February 2014
This morning we flead and wormed Tillie as is normal with new dogs arriving.
This afternoon Nigel came to walk the dogs, one of which was Tillie who he said was interested in everything she saw.
26th February 2014
This morning Tillie took a trip to the vet where she was spayed and received her first inoculation because she came with no inoculation card.
The vet noticed a small cyst on her tummy near where they were speying her and asked us to keep an eye on it to see if it disappeared, which they they think it will do now she's been speyed.
All went well with the spaying and we collected her in the late afternoon. Having made the kennel warmer than normal we put her in her bed and eventually she lay down and went to sleep to sleep off the aneasthetic.
27th February 2014
Tillie was very quiet last night after her operation, but she was okay and slept most of the time.
This afternoon when Nigel came to walk the dogs he gave Indi, Tillie and Lucy a short and gentle walk, which they enjoyed.

9th March 2014
This afternoon Tillie went along with Lucy to live in Wendy's home where they will be fostered, and Tillie will remain there until we can find her that forever home.
10th March 2014
Received an email this evening with a couple of pictures of Tillie who very quickly discovered the comforts of the settee in the living room.
3rd April 2014
Wendy mentioned today that Tillie walks fantastic on the lead and ignores the sheep as she walks past their field. Tillie is beginning to get quite playful and her character has started to show through now that Lucy has been re-homed and is no longer there to push her to one side.
Tillie adores Wendy's teenage son and she has started 'mouthing' your hand when she greets you. She needs lots of love does Tillie, and is still getting a bit anxious if left or she thinks she will be left, however, she is fine in her crate, but still has the odd accident if she becomes anxious. This is something that is puzzling Wendy as her anxiety doesn't always coincide with them being out and Tillie will have the odd accident in the kitchen even with the door to the yard open.
9th April 2014
Wendy emailed us a picture of Tilie this evening. She had been doing some decorating today and Tillie decided to lend a hand with the painting. Only problem was she wasn't wearing her work overalls and got covered in paint, which Wendy found very difficult to remove and ended up giving up! Oh dear, if anyone is interested in adopting Tillie just now it will have to be with paint and all!
11th April 2014
This morning Tillie went off to her new forever home where we hope she will have a long and happy life.
12th April 2014
We heard today that Tillie is getting on okay, there have been no accidents in the house and while out walking she met other dogs and was fine with them.
