For a change from Friday feature we thought we'd share a few photos of some of our kennel hounds who recently had their first taste of doggie ice cream. The ice cream treat had kindly been paid for by some of our supporters on the recent auction.
Eight of our kennel hounds - Patrick, Blue, Keel, Dickie, Mary, Charlie, Max and Rumble - had a very special day out at the weekend.
Some very kind supporters who took part in our recent online auction paid for them to all have an ice cream. The hounds were transported by volunteers and had a walk up to Rivington ending up at Curley's restaurant for a doggie ice cream.
Many thanks to all those who took part in the auction, those who walked/transported hounds, Wendy and Fiona for organising the walk and to Celine for photos. We hope you enjoy a few photos from the event :)
Also be assured that ice cream was taken back to kennels for the remaining hounds to have, to make sure no one missed out. :)
Stunning fawn and white four year old kennel hound Robbie has been in our kennels for a year now.
Robbie, who arrived in August last year, is a very friendly lad who gets on well with the other greyhounds in kennels. He’s a little excitable when he knows it’s time for walkies but soon settles down once out and about with the volunteers.
Robbie is getting used to the big wide world and has had new experiences including meeting other breeds of dog. Despite regular exposure to other smaller breeds of dog Robbie can, on occasions, be reactive towards them. However, we do know that Robbie is a very quick learner and we feel that with more training with an experienced owner his behaviour would soon improve. He would probably live with a female hound or would be equally as happy on his own.
Robbie does love humans and has a laid back lovable personality. He loves to roach in his kennel after a walk as though he doesn’t have a care in the world. J
If you think you could offer Robbie the home that he needs and 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. Alternatively you can complete our homing enquiry form on our website www.makantsgreyhoundrescue.co.uk under the ‘adopt/foster’ tab
Mary, who arrived with us only last month, is a timid and endearing girl who has settled well with us. She is laid back and quiet in her kennel, in fact you often don’t know you have her.
Siobhan has become particularly fond of Mary and says that, under her quiet exterior, she has quite a character once you get to know her. She shows her excitement by ‘chattering’ her teeth and also has some lovely smiles! She is great with the other greyhounds and fine with other breeds when out on walks. Siobhan is quite smitten with her and describes her as ‘just gorgeous’ (sounds like parting with her may be difficult!).
If you would like to find out more about Mary 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 which can be found under the ‘adopt/foster’ tab, one of our team will then get back to you.
