Dogs looking for their forever homes
The kennel element of our charity has to close this summer due to lack of funds and we are very keen to see our remaining two dogs find their forever home or a foster home with plenty of dog experience before then! Do you think you can help? Then please get in touch!
TANGO is our longest staying resident. He has been in the kennels for almost SIX years.
He is very afraid of things he doesn't know too much about and this fear manifests itself by him charging at his kennel front and barking and growling at anyone strange coming into the kennels.
However, with all the different members of staff we have had over the years, he has never bitten anyone and is happy to have cuddles and tummy rubs within just a couple of days of knowing them. He isn't nasty; he is just unsure and scared of new people.
He doesn't like children and isn't good with other dogs. He needs an experienced and understanding home where his fears and insecurities will be addressed. We are happy to pay for our awesome behaviourist - Paul Daly - to work with the new owner and help Tango overcome his issues.
Like most Lurchers, Tango is a very bright boy and will soon learn what is expected of him. We will arrange as many kennel visits as necessary with any prospective owner and are also happy to do several home visits with him to familiarise him with a new home prior to him leaving us.
We will do everything in our power to get our precious lad the right home. He is very much loved by all of the kennel girls, the volunteer dog walkers and anyone who really gets to know him.
We are on a short time scale and Tango is our biggest concern. We have to get him homed and settled and we know there is someone out there who is the perfect owner for him. It's always easy to take on a near-perfect dog, but the satisfaction and pleasure you can get from turning a challenging dog's life around is something else! Tango deserves that chance. Please give it to him.
JACK is a long-term resident - he has been with us for four years. He is black, big, almost nine years old and not keen on other dogs - so, not much going for him really! However, we know him well and he is a loving and well-behaved old man who gets overlooked time and time again.
There is no doubt that he will need an experienced Greyhound home where he is the only dog and he would need to be muzzled when out walking.
He is the kind of dog who just wants a quiet life and a comfy bed, so wouldn't suit a busy household with children rushing around.
Jack never gets looked at when anyone comes to see the dogs.
As soon as you say he's not keen on other dogs, people just walk on by and he loses another chance of a forever home.
He is loved dearly by all of us at the kennels, but that doesn't make up for the fact that he should be in a home with a sofa of his own.
Please consider giving Jack the home he so rightly deserves.
