Stunning boy STANLEY is our Friday Feature this week.
Stan arrived with us back in February this year and has settled in well. As you can see he is a stunning hound with the most amazing eyes - and with a lovely personality to match.
Stan can be a little timid with strangers but he soon comes around. He walks well on the lead and has enjoyed several days out to Haigh Hall with volunteers where he behaved beautifully. Siobhan feels Stan would enjoy living with an active family and is a lad with a lot of love to give.
Stan enjoys the company of the other greyhounds but it is not known how he would be with other breeds of dog. He could not live with a cat or small furry animals. If you would like to find out more about Stan featured here 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
Supporters, we've another homing to tell you about and this time the lucky hound has gone straight into a home. We were asked to home seven year old Bella - and we're pleased to let you know she now lives in the Bury area with supporter John.
As she went straight into a home we've no photos of her either but wouldn't like to miss out on sharing the good news. We've improvised with this picture of Snoopy, have a great day everyone!
Well, what a fantastic day we had! The weather was kind to us and we had great support from everyone who attended, with record numbers of entries for our dog show.
There are lots of doggie photos to follow (probably tomorrow as we have some rather exhausted volunteers tonight) but we must send our thanks to the following people who have helped make our day such an amazing success:
Friends of Astley St Park Kensite Services of Atherton The Judges - Abi and Ste, Bethany and Jo Kenny Mills, our compere extraordinaire Whittaker’s Bakery, Tyldesley Our fantastic baker, Anne Taberner Sue Costello, for donation of judges Thank You gifts All our volunteer photographers All who donated cakes and items for our stalls Individuals and businesses who sponsored the dog show classes All our fantastic volunteers for giving their time
This affectionate lad is currently in foster locally just patiently waiting for his forever home. He's been on two sleepovers and his carers report that Ray travelled well in the car, took new experiences in his stride and, when out and about, was well behaved on meeting other breeds of dog.
One volunteer, who we think was rather smitten by him, summed up Ray by saying ‘he’s a big lad with a big heart with plenty of love and cuddles to give’. His second hosts also reported that Ray was an affectionate lad and a 'dream in the house', and appeared to have already successfully mastered house training too.
Lovely lad Ray really is ready to go into a home. If you would like to find out more about this fabulous lad, please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988.
