Jem is a lovely young black/brown female greyhound who has never raced.  She is house trained, spayed, inoculate and microchipped. She has a lovely friendly nature, walks okay on the lead, but not sure at the moment of the bumping noises of lorries as they pass her, which in time she will become used to, and she travels well in a car.

Went to her new home on Sunday 17th March 2019.
Gem's Diary
6th March 2019

8th March 2019
This morning Gem went to the vets to be spayed where she weighed in at 22.4kg.  Her examination found her fit and well and this afternoon after she'd come round from her operation we brought her home where she could rest and recover.
9th March 2019
This morning we found Gem was back to her normal happy self waiting for her breakfast to catch up on what she missed yesterday.

We heard via Facebook that Aggie went to juvenile delinquent training school today. They did okay, she didn't manage to do much though and they were more observing at a distance. She was a bit stressed but not overly so and she still took treats and considered playing with the toys. There was this one ultra barky little pomeranian that Aggie was terrified of, which had to go behind the puppy pen visual barrier of shame. Aggie and her owner thought they were at least not that bad!
