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.

Bullet's arrival and a brief history

Black Greyhound
Bullet is a handsome black ex-racing greyhound who was born on the 6th June 2009. He weighs 31.4k, is house trained, neutered, inoculated, microchipped and recently had a dental when 3 canine teeth were removed.
Bullet is a super dog who is very friendly and adores affection, he just can't get enough of it and always wants to please. He is one of those dogs who looks you in the eye when he wants something, and loves a kiss. He travels well in the car and ignores other breeds of dogs when out walking

Went to his new home on Sunday 28th June 2015 .

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

23rd March 2015
This afternoon Bullet arrived, brought to us by his owner / trainer. From first impressions, what a lovely dog he is and he got on okay when he was introduced to the others in the kennel.
27th March 2015
Although Bullet was neutered before he arrived here and his inoculations were up to date, we wanted him to see the vet for a check-up with a view to him having a dental. Bullet's teeth could do with a clean and some of his canine teeth were worn a long way down, possibly from chewing bars at some stage in his life. The vet found Bullet fit and well, and agreed he needed a dental so we made arrangements to take him in.
28th March 2015
All the dogs from the kennel including Bullet came into the house for part of the day. With the gate at the end of the kitchen closed they all lay in the kitchen and slept while I did my work.
1st April 2015
This morning Bullet went to the vets for his dental where he weighed in at 31.2k. His teeth were cleaned and the vet removed 3 canine teeth, all those worn down to the jaw bone. All went well and later in the afternoon we collected him and brought him home. Back in his kennel we made him a comfy, warm bed and he slept things off.
16th April 2015
Last night Bullet slept in the house for the first time because of the new dogs arriving in the kennel. He was fine, and just followed the lead otf the others this morning when they went out then settled behind the gate to watch while we were preparing and serving our b&b guests their breakfast.
28th June 2015
This morning Bullet went of with his new owners to his forever home where we hope he has a long and happy life with his new family.
9th August 2015
We received an email today with the following message from Bullet, now Buzz's new owners:
"Thought we would give you a 6 week update.  Firstly the 6 weeks have really flown by and we are all settling well into our new life together.  In many ways it feels like we have been together for a long time and we can't imagine life without Buzz now. 
So far all has gone really well and we have had  no problems to report back to you.  I think you definitely helped us choose the perfect dog for us as he absolutely loves long walks and over the last 6 weeks we have built up to a 10 mile walk, we stop for a picnic lunch and you were right that he loves bread and he really enjoys his packed lunch.  When we get home he sleeps very contently for rest of the day. 
All worked well so far with our grandchildren and we have made great progress with our grandson who is very nervous of dogs, he will now brush and stroke him.  His coat looks really good and the hair on his back legs is coming on a treat. He still enjoys his tea tree and coconut oil massages." 
27th February 2016
We received an email this morning with a Buzz and Hanna update. Here is what their owner said:
"Just wanted to say a quick hello and to let you know all is going well here with Hanna and Buzz.  As you predicted they get on fine, Buzz knows how to calm her down when she oversteps the mark.  She has a totally different take on life to Buzz and I don't know if its because she's female or not but she has sussed out living here much quicker than he did.  Within a few hours of being here she found where we store the dog food, we found her like a child in a sweet shop.  The armchair was hers within minutes and the toys well she adores them.  Flower was right about the counter surfing, and whilst no proof  its her we didn't have muddy work tops before she arrived :) We have got her walk up to 7.5 miles in the week which she seemed to enjoy and her and Buzz love having a gallop in the field adjacent to our house.  Hanna is very good at recall, teaching Buzz a thing or two.  She's been brilliant with the grandchildren as well. Oh and whilst we still have a remote control the pot pouri and shells in the bathroom don't quite look the same.  So no complaints from us so far and we will keep you updated".
