Went to his new home on Monday 24th June 2019.

Jack (Shoemaker Jack) is a white & black greyhound
DATE OF BIRTH: 10/2013
WEIGHT: 33 kg

Jack is a handsome white and black ex-racing greyhound who is house trained, neutered, inoculated, microchipped and recently had a dental when 5 teeth were removed (3 of which were extra ones).
Jack is a lovely lad who walks super on the lead and travels well in a car.  Jack was his previous owner's favourite dog and was neutered before he came to us.  He loved going to the races and did 181 races for them without injuring himself.  Now they want him to have a home with a sofa.

Jack's Diary
16th May 2019

17th May 2019
Jack's struggling to eat his Gain20 so I think he's in need of a dental.  To help him eat and put weight on I've put him on Burns Sensitive as it soaks better and will be easier for him.  His first dish and it all went to the last piece, so we'll keep him on this until after he's had his dental.
 22nd May 2019
This morning Jack went to the vet for a checkup. There was a querie over his inoculation status which we must check and it was deemed he needed a dental.
30th May 2019
This morning Jack went to the vets where he had his dental.  He had 5 teeth removed, but 3 of these were extra teeth causing problems for the ones mean't to be there.  When he cam home he was very groggy so wr popped him in a crate where he could rest and recover without being pestered by the others.
31st May 2019
Well Jack has made a full recover and was looking forward to his dish of soaked Blurns and meat, which went down a treat.
14th June 2019
This morning Jack visited the vet where he had his first inoculation to bring him back up to date.
24th June 2019
This morning Jack went off to his new home where he will be living with Freddie, Rita and Harry (all of whom came from here) and Billy.  He loved their company while they were here and happily jumped in the back of the van with them to go off to his new home where we are sure he will have a long and happy life.
