This weekend we had a team representing Makants at the Greyhound Gap show and they report they had a fabulous day, meeting so many lovely people and hounds. We're pleased to say that many of those hounds are now wearing our hand made dog coats, some of which you can see in the photos.
We send our thanks to Lisa and all at Greyhound Gap for inviting us to the show which was a well deserved success.
Our Friday Feature this week is the adorable Sammie.
Sammie, who is 2.5, is currently in foster locally living with an older male greyhound. We’re pleased to say Sammie settled really well with her foster carers and quickly got to grips with housetraining.
Sammie enjoys the company of the resident greyhound often encouraging him to join her in a game or two! She loves nothing more than playing ‘fetch’ and doing ‘zoomies’ in the garden – she also has a great love of squeaky toys!
While having her more lively moments, Sammie also has a quieter side to her as she adores cuddles and, like most greyhounds, is happy to spend the day chilling and snoozing when her foster carers are out.
Sammie has taken every new experience in her stride and recently also enjoyed a day out to the beach, and relished taking in all the new sights, sounds and smells.
If you would like to find out more about this lovely 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 which can be found under the ‘adopt/foster’ tab on our website: www.makantsgreyhoundrescue.co.uk
Please note: at this stage we don't think Sammie would be suitable to live with cats or small furry animals
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.
