Jewel is a lovely playful black ex-racing greyhound who is house trained, spayed, inoculated and microchipped.
She loves her food and will eat more than is dictated by her size.  If she thinks she's hungry she will tell you so, yes, Jewel loves her food. She walks lovely on a lead, is okay with children and from what we've seen so far she is okay with other breeds of dogs and travels well in a car.

Went to her new home on Saturday 27th April 2019.
Jewel's Diary
17th April 2019
This evening Jewel arrived with Sadie and at first she seemed relaxed, but about an hour after being here she became unsettled with her new environment and started pacing, so we popped her in a crate to help her settle. We gave her some food and let her in the garden, which seemed to help her somewhat, so she came back in the house and she stayed in the kitchen with me until it was time to let her out last thing and settle her to her bed.

This afternoon Jewel and Sadie's new owners called to collect them.  Completed the adoption paperwork and took them home with them, where we hope they will both have a long and happy life together with their new family.
