Enya arrived on Friday 9th November 2018.
Went to her new home on Monday 14th December 2018

DATE OF BIRTH: 27/02/2013
Enya is a nice black greyhound who can be a liitle nervous and shy when she first meets you.  Once she gets to know you she becomes playful and is a happy girl who loves being cuddled.

Went to her new home on Monday 14th December 2018
Enya's Diary
June 2018
Enya was found wandering, thin and in a poor condition and was taken in by Stray Aid, a charity in North East. They flead, wormed, inoculated her and gave her a dentalwhich involved removing some bad teeth. Once recovered she went to Greyhound Trust West Cumbria who would help her find a loving home of her own.
Poor Enya was so frightened she cowered at the back of the kennel and wouldn't let anyone near her for six days. Gentle coaxing gradually brought her round and rehabilitation continued to the next level.
At the end of October the branch phoned asking if we could help her here in a home environment with the other greyhounds, and of course we said we would.
9th November 2018
This morning Stuart met Tom at Penrith and picked

a very frightened Enya up.  Back here she met the other greyhounds then we popped her in a crate in the living room to feel safe and so she could meet the others without feeling threatened.
The people at Greyhound Trust West Cumbria had done well and now it was our turn to find and prepare her for a new home.
14th December 2018
This afternoon Enya went of to her new home where we hope she will have a long and happy life with her new family.
16th December 2018
We received an email today letting us know that Enya is settling in well.  Her new owners say her appetite is very good and there are no issues with her going to bed at night, they haven't heard a peep out of her.
She is walking very nicely with John after a bit of encouragement to get her to leave the house.  They have passed other dogs on their walks and there are no problems, she just continues walking and takes no notice.
John is absolutely smitten with Enya and her new family says she will be good for him.
