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.

Diamond - black greyhound
Diamond is a beautiful black ex-racing greyhound who is 4 years old and weighs 27k.
Diamond is spayed, inoculated and microchipped.
She has a lovely friendly nature, is cat trainable, okay with the other breeds of dogs, walks lovely on the lead and travels well in a car.

Went to her forever home on Saturday 5th December 2015.

Diamond's Diary
11th November 2015
This afternoon Diamond arrived here for us to foster until we find her a forever home. We introduced her to the other greyhounds in the garden, all of whom got on well with her then having done her toilet outside we brought her in the house where she stayed in the kitchen area so I could keep my eye on her. She quickly followed the other's example and lay on one of the dog beds and slept.
12th November 2015
Diamond was fine last night, a couple of whimpers before she settled to her bed but then not a sound till one of the others wanted out around 4am, so she followed them out and back in again.
We took her to the pub this evening with Sandy and she was very good, loved saying hello to everyone, even the black lab who was in there wandering around off lead as she normally does. She's very pretty so we are looking forward to taking some pictures of her when it's not raining!
14th November 2015
This morning Stuart took Diamond and Princess to Ulverston to meet Nicole, a volunteer who was hosting a dog show in Barrow-in-Furness and asked if she could take a couple of dogs to the show because the funds being raised at the show was coming to our branch for the dogs.
Diamond was a star, she was so placid around the other breeds of dogs, even the boxer who growled at her. She had many admirers at the show, but then she is very pretty.
17th November 2015
This morning we took Diamond to a friend's house so we could 'cat test' her. She passed with flying colours - with a muzzle on she just sniffed the cat and turned away. When encouraged to approach the cat again it spat at her, so she turned her head and walked away from it. After that she just wasn't interested in it at all. Super news
18th November 2015
Diamond went to the vets this morning to be spayed and weighed in at 27k. All went well, but when we called for her she walked down the corridor at the vets looking very sorry for herself. Home again and she soon went fast asleep all wrapped up in a blanket on her coolaroo bed in the living room and slept things off.
5th December 2015
This afternoon Diamond went off to her forever home where we hope she will have a long and happy life with her new family.
10th December 2015
We received an email today from Diamond's new owners, this is what they said:
" I thought you might like an update on how Diamond is getting on. She seems to have completely settled into her new home. 
We have introduced her to the cat Elsa a couple of times and she has been hissed at but is not really bothered - it will be more a case of Elsa getting used to Diamond being around I think. 
She is eating well and much more settled than she was the first few days. Not panting any more and no "accidents" for last couple of days.
We love having her and she seems very contented. Thanks for letting us have her"
28th January 2016
We heard today that Diamond is getting on great and settling in well to family life.  She's getting plenty of exercise and sleeping it off in between.
