This week we have a change from our usual Friday Feature.
As many of you already know we are arranging to travel to Heathrow to collect Fire, arriving from Macau, over the weekend. While we are obviously very excited about her arrival we are anxious to ensure a safe and as stress free as possible introduction to life in the U.K. As you can imagine Fire will need time to settle away from the public eye. Please note that in this respect we will NOT be taking any enquiries concerning her rehoming nor will we allow requests to visit her. All we want for her in her first few days is to feel secure, loved and comfortable. The welfare of the dog, as always, must come first.
At Makants we have a fantastic homing record as we ensure that our homes and hounds are very thoroughly matched. Although we know that many people are interested in the Macau greyhounds, we must point out that we have many other greyhounds with us in need of a home. If you wish to discuss homing ANY of our hounds you can contact Siobhan on 076960561988 or Sue on 07794463249. Thank you.
Hi there everyone, my names Jake and I’m pleased to meet you. I hope this Valentine’s day feature will help you get to know me better.
Let me start by introducing myself using three words. The three words that spring to mind which I think describe me are - TALL DARK AND HANDSOME! I should also mention that I’m a recently retired athlete who’s now looking to live life in the slow lane and also to share my life with someone special. I’m a friendly guy, I love sleepovers, am very adaptable and love my food. I really enjoy eating in.
My idea of an ideal Sunday would be a walk in the countryside followed by spending time relaxing on a comfy sofa, next to someone special. I’m looking for someone who is ready for love and a long term commitment - and believe me I have a lot of love to give in return. I've recently been told I'm adorable, I'd love you to find out why.
So all you lovely Makants humans out there, if you are looking for a special someone who fits my description why not arrange to meet up? Just think, by next Valentine’s day we could be sharing a sofa together. You can call my people on 07960561988 or 07794463249.
ROBBIE IS LOOKING FOR HIS VALENTINE ...Robbie is a very friendly lad who gets on well with the other greyhounds in kennels. He’s a little excitable when he knows it’s time for walkies but soon settles down once out and about with the volunteers.
We think Siobhan could be a little smitten with this stunning lad as she describes Robbie as a ‘little love’.
If you are looking for your Valentine why not get in touch and see if Robbie is a match for you? Please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988.
This weekend we were delighted to be visited by some of our smallest supporters - Sam and Aimee. They came along to donate the money they raised by selling 'reindeer dust' to their friends and family before Christmas. They were also accompanied by their Makants puppy Jaxon who appears in the photo.
Thank you so much girls, you are so kind hearted and set such a good example for others to follow. :)
We have lovely news to share on a Monday morning, this time it's DANNY!
This lovely lad only came into our rescue last month and has wasted no time in finding himself his forever home. Danny has been adopted by Helen and they will both live in the Horwich area. Congratulations to them both!
Black and white Duke arrived with us at the end of October and has settled in well, he’s a stunning big lad who is now more than ready for a home of his own. Our regular volunteer Dave takes Duke out walking most days and now reports that he walks well on the lead and is not reactive when he comes across other breeds of dog.
Duke had the opportunity to spend some time in a home and was clean in the house and very well behaved. As Duke is confident, and likes his own company, we think he would be happiest being the only dog in a quiet home and would be best placed in a home with experienced hound owners. Also, we do not think Duke would be comfortable living with small children.
If you would like to find out more about Duke please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988. Alternatively you can complete our short homing questionnaire on our website www.makantsgreyhoundrescue.co.uk
