New arrival Jake, who came to us last month, has already settled well in kennels. We’ve found him to be a very friendly confident dog, who is easy to care for too.
Jake was lucky to have a weekend sleepover recently with volunteer Trev. This is what Trev says about him: ‘Jake was good and clean around the house, he liked attention and was good on the lead. He was interested in what was going on around him on walks but didn’t react negatively to other dogs that we saw when out near Pennington flash. He was great on the lead - no pulling - and was always keen to go on walks, he kept ambling towards the front door dropping a big hint!’ Trev also described Jake as a 'gentle lad who loves company'.
Trev did say Jake also followed an hilarious rigorous yoga routine after every nap - which anyone with greyhounds will no doubt be familiar with!

2019 starts off in great style with news of a homing and this time it's BEAR! This lovely hound has been in foster for several months with Dave and his Mum Pat and, as the saying goes, the rest is history! He joins adopted Makants hounds Jake and Charlie and has already made a good start on his fundraising career. Congratulations to the whole family!
2018 has been an absolutely phenomenal year for homing for us. None of this would have been possible without our hard working dedicated volunteers and supporters - and of course those of you who took one of our hounds into your home.

Lovely lad Rocky has had a day out on Saturday with Jude, Hayley and family. They visited Borsdane woods and Haigh Hall with plenty of walking involved - and Rocky has spent time in their home too. He met small dogs, small people and large people and we're pleased to say he took everything in his stride.
We send our thanks to our wonderful volunteers for spending time with Rocky, and for showing him something of the outside world.
If you would like to find out more about him please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
