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.

Went to her new home on Saturday 20th February 2016.


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

Sangria - brindle greyhound
Sangria is a lovely small brindle ex-racing greyhound who was born on the 12th August 2013 and weighs 24k. She is rather a timid girl until she gets to know you then she becomes your best pal and is lovely and playful. Her previous owner/trainer says she is used to seeing small dogs around and travels well in the car.



Went to her new home on Saturday 20th February 2016.



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




31st December 2015

Sangria the little monkey has been licking the area she's been spayed. I never noticed it till this evening as she was laying in her bed and saw her stomach was red. Getting one of my teeshirts I put it on her and put some Manuka honey on the area she'd been licking. In the morning we are going to have another look after a night without licking and decide whether she needs to see the vet when they are next open.
1st January 2016
A night without licking the wound and it looks less angry this morning so we are putting more manuka honey on it and she will stay in my teeshirt till she decides to leave it a long. You can't miss her in the garden because the teeshirt is bright pink and now of the off the shoulder style where she's chewed one strap. Don't think I will be wearing that one again!
9th January 2016
This lunch time Flower and Colin, both volunteers of the branch arrived to collect Sangria and Hanna who they are looking after while we are away on holiday. All packed up and on their way the house seemed very quiet without them.
14th January 2016
Flower says Sangria is such a little poppet. While out on their walk she saw something and got very excited and leaped up a couple of times but never made a sound. Whatever it was none of the others noticed it and apart from tht she walks well on the lead with the others.
20th January 2016
Flower says now in week two of her stay Sangria has decided to risk the settee and its great.
21st January 2016
Flower says "this a first, Sangria working the kong, it was so lovely watching her today feeling relaxed enough to be able to do that.
25th January 2016
Sangria cuddled into Lenny in their bed after their morning walk this morning. She is still very nervous out and about with new things and loud noises, but give her own space, chance to assess the situation and plenty of reasurance and she carries on happily. Flower say this sleeping with Lenny Is a first, no way would she have done this last week. She is such a sweet honest little girl and will give her whole heart to you once she trusts you.Flower says Sangria doesn't really do children but both her grandchildren say she is better than she was, so maybe it will just take time.
27th January 2016
Flower sent a Facebook message letting us know that Sangria now gives them both a lovely welcome when they come downstairs in the morning or if they have been out. Flower also gets lovely cuddles and kisses off her.
10th February 2016
Sangria loves snuggling in with Flower, and no way is she giving up her settee if she can help it. Flower tries to wind her up like she does the other dogs but Sangria won't play the game.
14th February 2016
This lunch time Flower and Colin returned Hanna and Sangria following them looking after them while we were away on holiday.
20th February 2016
This lunch time the lady who reserved Sangria called in with her granddaughter to complete the adoption paperwork and take Sangria home with them.
To begin with Sangria was a little wary of another new face, but as she became more brave she came a closer each time until she gave her new owner's granddaughter's hand a little lick. A little wary of what was going on she walked to their car and jumped in the back. As they drove off Sangria was looking out the back window at me, which made me sad. She is such a lovely, friendly, playful little girl once she gets to know you. She is full of character and we will sorely miss her being around.
We wish you well in your new home Sangria and to a long and happy life with your new family.
28th February 2016
We received an email today letting us know that Sangria has settled in very well, and made herself at home. She's not too sure about people coming into the house though. As she seems a bit wary of strangers her new owner doesn't know if she will learn to go and say hello to visitors further down the line. She says she will have to wait and see. She decided to change Sangria's name to Willow because she has fancied having a dog  with that name for a while.
