Two year old ‘bouncy boy’ Sid arrived with us at the beginning of May and has settled well.
Sid does have just one eye (he was born this way) and he manages very well, in fact he doesn’t miss anything that’s going on!
Sid has already been lucky have a sleepover with Julia, one of our walking volunteers. Julia has this to say about Sid:
‘I was lucky enough to have Sid to stay for the weekend and he was an absolute joy. He spent some time exploring his new world (he was very eager to befriend that other dog in the mirror, which was totally hilarious!). He was interested in his surroundings but fairly confident and unfazed by all the new stimuli.
He showed me that he is a quick learner, affectionate, friendly and responsive, and he settled really well. He walks well on the lead and was interested in meeting other dogs and any children we came across on our walks.’
Julia feels Sid would make an ideal family dog as he is a young dog with plenty of energy and would enjoy being involved with everything going on in and out of the home.
If you would like to find out more about Sid featured here please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988.
Pheby continues to make great progress and is quite confident now in situations she knows but can be a bit unsure at times when she comes across something new.
Pheby walks well on the lead, is affectionate and is loving her toys and - endearingly - looks after them well. :)
Siobhan sums Pheby up by saying 'she just seems to have relaxed and is enjoying her new life'.
Please remember we are looking for a very special home for Pheby.
We need someone who has greyhound experience and the time to spend with her during her initial settling in period. Pheby needs a quiet home and we cannot home her with small animals or cats and would prefer an adult only household. We feel Pheby could be homed with another hound with a similar temperament or as an only hound.
If you would like to find out more about this fabulous girl 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 which can be found under the ‘adopt/foster’ tab. One of our team will then get back to you. photo credit: C. Tang
