Sadly Dora was returned on Tuesday 14th August 2018 after who owner passed away. 
We looked after Dora until after the funeral and her partner knew if she could keep her or not.
Sadly due to work commitments she requested Dora be found a new home.

Went to her forever home on Wednesday 5th December 2018

Dora is a white and blue Greyhound
DATE OF BIRTH: 19/03/2015
WEIGHT: 26 kg.
INOCULATED: 04/07/2018
Dora is a pretty white and blue ex-racing greyhound who was born on the 19th March 2015 and weighs about 26kg.,  Dora lives in a house so is house trained.  She is also spayed, microchipped and her inoculations are up to date.  
Dora went to her new home on Saturday 7th July 2018 to live with Shay, who is a fawn Whippet.  Sadly during August their owner became gravely ill and passed away.
Dora is a very affectionate and loving girl who is okay with children and other breeds of dogs.  She walks nicely on a lead and travels well in a car, but we need to find her a home with  another dog as a companion. This is because she's not happy being left on her own.  She's not destructive but she gets very anxious and will bark to call her owner back.

Went to her new home on Wednesday 5th December 2018
Dora's Diary
26th June 2018
This afternoon Dora arrived and what a lovely greyhound she is.
4th July 2018
This morning Dora went to the vet for her booster inoculation so she was ready to go to her new home.
6th July 2018
Dora has been going out with her new owners during the day since they arrived at the bed and breakfast 4 nights ago to see how she was with Shay the Whippet.  All has been well so Dora slept in their room with them this evening in readiness for them taking her home with them tomorrow. They said she was super and no problem at all.
7th July 2018
This morning we removed Dora's stitches from where she was spayed and off she went with Shay and her new owners, where we hope she will have a

long and happy life.
14th August 2019
Following the sudden illness and subsequent death of Dora and Shay's new owner, her partner rang to say she couldn't handle two fairly new dogs at this very difficult time and asked if we could have the pair of them and if possible find them a home together as they got on so well.  Arrangements were made for them to be brought over from Northern Ireland and we met a lady in the layby just off the M6 J36 and collected them. With such sudden events we decided to give the lady a while before homing them to ensure she hadn't actioned this in haste, something she would later regret.
2rd September 2018

Having monitored both Shay and Dora we came to the conclusion it wasn't each other they wanted just others to play and fuss them.  Consequently, Flower brought them back to us so we could find homes for them   Flower however, felt she couldn't part with Shay and asked if they could adopt him, and of course we said yes.
Dora quickly settled back into the routine here and was fine.
