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.

Bonnie's arrival and a brief history

Bonnie - black & white Greyhound
Bonnie is a small, very pretty black and white ex-racing greyhound who was born on the 2nd June 2012. weighs 24k, is house trained, spayed, inoculated and microchipped.
Bonnie is a quiet, sweet little girl who is very friendly and will make someone a lovely companion. She walks nicely on the lead, is okay with other breeds of dogs and travels well in a car.




Went to her new home on Saturday 19th March 2016.


Bonnie's Diary
1st March 2016
This afternoon Ebbie and Bonnie arrived with their owner/trainer. What a couple of beautiful dogs they are. Bonnie has retired from racing and her owner/trainier said she was a very friendly bitch who was okay with dogs and because of her gentle nature he believed she may even be cat trainable, but she'd not been tested.
After her owner/trainer left we introduced her to all our other greyhounds and all was well so we let her in the house where she had a good look around and settled to one of the beds in the living room.
2nd March 2016
Bonnie had a good night in the house last night and went in the garden to do her toilet with all the others this morning. She's a lovely dog, very gentle and eats her food nicely, no pushing or shoving, just waits patiently for it to arrive.
4th March 2016
This morning Bonnie went to the vets to be spayed and have her first inoculation because she came with no inoculation card. She weighed in at 24kg, said hello to a couple of other dogs in the waiting room then went off to be spayed. All went well and we collected her in the afternoon.
She was a bit sleepy with the anaesthetic during the evening and wouldn't lay down until we helped her. Once down we covered her with a blanket and she slept things off.
5th March 2016
Bonnie is up and about this morning and enjoyed her breakfast.
15th March 2016
This lunch time we took 3 greyhounds to the lady who has cats so we could 'cat test' them because we had a couple of families looking for a cat trainable greyhound. With Bonnie being the way she is and because of what her owner/trainer said when he brought her we decided to include Bonnie as well.
When Bonnie first saw the cats we thought there was a good possibility she would be okay until the cats moved and from her reaction we realised she wouldn't be, so she was small dog friendly but not cat trainable.
19th March 2016
This morning Bonnie took a trip to the vets where she had her stitches removed and given her second inoculation.
Early afternoon her new owners arrived, completed the adoption paperwork and took her for a walk with their other greyhound before driving home with her.
Bonnie looked very content with her new family and we hope they all have a long and happy life together.
