Makants walking volunteer Chris adopted Sally from us last year and this is what Chris has to say about this stunning girl.
“I was volunteering as a walker at the farm on the day when Sally arrived in a pretty sorry state. Her fur was well out of condition, she was very stressed and had a nasty stomach upset. Despite all this I knew straight away that I had to adopt her and the rest, as they say, is history!
I’m pleased to say that Sally has gone from strength to strength since the day she arrived in Makants care. She is now supremely confident, greeting everyone – human or canine - as if they were her long lost friend! I take her to a local country park and am able to let her off the lead. Sally loves l to play with all the dogs there, including splashing about in the river, fetching balls (something greyhounds aren’t usually well known for) and generally having a great time.
She now has a huge fan club as all the other dog walkers know her and love her to pieces. A very proud day for us both was in August last summer at the Hillcrest dog show in Chorley where Sally was awarded two rosettes , one of which was for Best Rescue. It was a very emotional moment and showed what a long way she had come from that day only months earlier when she had arrived at Makants kennels.
Sally also has a fabulous calm temperament and enjoys spending time with elderly residents in a local Care Home. I’m hoping to enrol her as an official therapy dog soon.”
