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.

Black Greyhound
Jodi is a black ex-racing greyhound who was born on the 1st November 2012 and weighs 25.4k. She is spayed, microchipped and inoculated, and currently being house trained.
Jodi has a lovely sweet nature, is okay on the lead, has seen other breeds of dogs while out walking and travels well in the car.

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

Jodi's Diary
* The branch kennel at the bottom of our garden is where Jodi and the other resident(s) will be for the first day or so until she gets to know the other greyhounds. She has use of our garden and paddock, and once she gets to know the other dogs she 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.

21st May 2015

9th June 2015
Jodi went to the vets this morning where she weighed in at 25.3k. As we let them out this morning around 10.30 am one of the other dogs nipped her as she pranced past him. I think it was a warning to go more sedately, but he got too close and the nip needed stitching. What a thing to happen especially as she was suppose to be going to her new home on Sunday. This will now be delayed until we see how the area heals.
When we got her home in the afternoon she was feeling very sorry for herself, yelping when she moved and growling or snapping at any dog who got anywhere near her. To give her peace and to sleep off the after effects of the anaesthetic we put her in the crate in the living room with all her cuddly toys to lay with, and this settled her.
10th June 2015
Jodi was feeling very sore last night after her ordeal yesterday,
which was most upsetting for us all, but this morning she's much better, ate her breakfast and not quite so grumpy with the others unless they got a bit rough around her, then she soon put them in their place.
Tonight she's carrying all the soft toys from the toy box back into

Jodi - Black Greyhound
In our garden
28th June 2015
her bed, she so loves her toys! 
The vet who did her operation wants to see her again next week, and her stitches to come out after 2 weeks.  She's on Metacam pain relief and antibiotics.
15th June 2015
Jodi's wound on her side is healing nicely and the hair, where the vets shaved it off is beginning to grow back. She's still on the antibiotics, but she's back to her normal happy self again, and shows no concern when any of the other dogs brush past her or bump into her. Her stitches will be removed after being in for 2 weeks and then she's off to her new home.
16th June 2015
This morning Jodi had the stitches removed from where she was spayed. All had healed nicely.
28th June 2015
This afternoon Jodi went off with her new owners to her forever home where we hope she will have a long and happy life with her new family.
