Name: Bron

Sex: dog

Age: 7 years

Information: Poor Bron has been passed around a lot recently, through no fault of his own, and so he badly needs a stable home with an experienced owner.

Bron is in the kennels in Devon.

Name: Churchill

Sex: dog

Age: 8 years

Churchill is good with other dogs and has met children, but we don't know what he would be like with cats. He can be left for up to 4 hours and his recall when off the lead is good.

Name: Cooper

Sex: dog

Age: 10 months

Information: Gorgeous Golden Retriever Copper has had to come into the rescue kennels because of a change in his family's circumstances. He has been living with another dog and is used to having a cat around, so can have a new home where there is already a dog and he should be able to live with a cat with careful introduction. Cooper can live live with children aged over 5 years. He likes to have someone around and gets anxious if left on his own, so if he goes to a home where he will be the only pet, it does need to be with someone who will be with him for most of the time. Cooper is in the kennels in Dorset. RESERVED

   

Name: Jayjay

Sex: dog

Age: 2 and a half years

Information: Jayjay has been in the rescue kennels for a whole year and has seen all his fellow greyhounds go to new homes, but sadly no-one seems to want him and now he is the the only rescue dog in the kennels at Christmas. Jayjay is a handsome black greyhound who has a very gentle nature. He loves people and likes playing fetch with a ball. He is good with other greyhounds, but can be wary of small dogs, so will need careful introduction to them. Jayjay would love to find a home with an experienced greyhound owner who already has a female greyhound or lurcher, or he could be an only dog, as long as he is not left on his own for more than 4 hours a day. PLEASE make this year a better one for Jayjay, one in which he has a home and someone to love him. Jayjay is in the kennels in Dorset.

Name: Skye

Sex: bitch

Age: about 8 years

Information: Skye is a lovely English Bull Terrier cross who is approximately 8 years old. Skye is a lovely natured girl who is so affectionate with people and always wants lots of love and cuddles. She is still very active and loves her walks and enjoys a play so would like somewhere where she can still get out and about a lot and investigate her surroundings. Skye only knows a couple of commands, however she is very focused and eager to learn and we have found that a few tasty treats definitely help. As with all our dogs we would recommend carrying on her training with positive reinforcement to help her progress. Skye appears to be sociable with the dogs; however she CAN’T share her home with small animals or small dogs. Sky is suitable to be homed with children 6yrs +.

Name: Sylvia

Sex: bitch

Age: 4 years

Information: This very pretty greyhound is Sylvia who came into the rescue last year and went to a new home a few months ago, but sadly, through no fault of her own, she has had to come back into the rescue kennels. She is a beautiful, small and dainty girl who loves people and gets on well with other dogs. She has a delightful, enthusiastic, personality and greets her carers at the kennels with a happy face and a very waggy tail. Sylvia has been living with a whippet and got on very well with him, so she can go to a new home where there is already another greyhound, lurcher or whippet. She does need a cat free home and, as she is not used to living with them, where there are no small dogs. Sylvia can live with children aged over 8 years. Her favourite part of the day is when she is taken out into the field to run and play and have fun. Sylvia is in the kennels in Dorset.
