Eli is a super black male ex-racing Greyhound who has no injuries.  He won a few races but decided one day he'd had enough and came last in the race.  His trainer could see his heart wasn't in it any longer so decided to find him a home with a sofa to lay on. Eli  is house trained, neutered, inoculated, microchipped and weighs 33kg.  He walks nicely on the lead, travels well in a car, is a very friendly and loveable dog with a similar temperament to our Thor.

Went to his new home on Wednesday 10th July 2019
Eli's Diary
1st July 2019
This afternoon Eli arrived and whilst here his trainer cut the toe nails of the other greyhounds here at the branch.
Eli is a lovely lad and soon settled in with all the others here.
2nd July 2019
This morning Eli went to the vet to be neutered where he weighed in at 33.4 kg.  All went well with the operation and we collected him in the afternoon. There was a rash where he had been shaved, which looked somewhat sore so they gave us some cream for it to settle things.
10th July 2019
This morning the couple homing both Patch and Eli came to complete the adoption paperwork and take them home.  They are a lovely pair of dogs and get on well with each other so we wish them both a long and happy life together with their new family.
