Information: Retired greyhound Katie is a big, beautiful, very friendly girl with a very laid back nature. She is black with lovely white snowflake-like spots. Katie was born on 27 September 2011. As she is a big greyhound we feel that a home where any children are at least 8 years old is best. She is so gentle that she would never hurt any child, but because she is tall she could accidently bump into a small child. Katie is in the kennels in Dorset.

Name: Mickey

Sex: dog

Age: 18 months

Information: Micky is a stunning brindle and white Lurcher young boy and considering how he was found, he is in beautiful condition, with a soft and smooth coat, and he has a fab personality. Poor thing was found dumped in a field in the middle of nowhere clearly been there for some time as he had tried to make a bed in the grass in the pouring rain. When he was found he looked like he had lost the will to live, poor soul. Micky is good on the lead, walked past all the other dogs, sniffed and said hello, tail wagging like mad and no aggression shown. He doesn’t yet now any commands, he loves treats and takes them nicely, he loves a gentle rub under the chin on both sides while he rests his head on your lap with his eyes closed. Micky has a super waggy tail and he is so handsome, he could be a male pin up in the lurcher community, has very striking eyes. Mickey was staying in a temporary foster home in another area, but they were not able to keep him for long, so he has now come into the rescue kennels. His fosterer said: "Mickey has a nice personality and we are working on his “sit” and “take gently” now. He is in foster with a female Beagle x Podenco girl and they get on well. He meets medium dogs on his walks and wags his tail at them. He is strong on the lead but walks well on a halti. He is living with children but we know he can@t live with cats or small furries or even small furry dogs. On his walks we avoid small furry dogs as he mistakes them for rabbits!" Mickey is in the kennels in Devon.

Name: Roman

Sex: dog

Age: about 4 years

Information: UPDATE. Poor Roman has been in the kennels for longer than any of the other dogs and would love to have a home of his own and someone to love him. During the time he has been with us he has had to undergo an operation to remove most of his tail after it was badly hurt from him wagging it so much when he saw kennel staff he knew. Roman is a male Lurcher who is approximately 4 years old. He is a gorgeous chap who looks like he’s had a rough start to life. He arrived quite underweight and did have sores on him. Since being here he has gained weight and is a lot more out-going. He is a bit shy when he first meets new people but once he knows you he is the most lovely, exceptionally affectionate lad and enjoys human contact so much. Roman was unsure of other dogs when he first came into the rescue, but now loves to run and play with his new lurcher friend Mickey. Roman would be able to be homed in a family with children 5+. He is in the kennels in Devon.

He is very good with other hounds, and is sharing his kennel with greyhound Debs. They adore each other and we would love to be able to find a home for them where they can stay together, but we realise that this may not be possible. If they are re-homed separately, it must be to a home where there is already another greyhound. He is not that tall, no more or maybe a bit less than average size for a male greyhound. Sam is a gentle boy who has been around children, so he can live with children aged 5 or over. He 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 +.
