Patch is a large white and black ex-racing male greyhound whose racing career came to an end when he broke his right hock, which has now been repaired.
Patch is house trained, neutered, inoculated and microchipped. He's a lovely friendly lad who is okay with children and was used to seeing other breeds of dogs in the doggie day care paddock next to his kennels.  He loves playing with his toys and will do a tug-o-war with his toys if another dog is willing to participater.  He walks nicely on the lead and travels well in a car.

Went to his new home on Wednesday 10th July 2019
Patch's Diary
12th June 2019

14th June 2019
Patch went to the vets this morning to be neutered and weighed in at 13.1kg.  All went well and in the afternoon we brought him home to sleep things off and recover from the operation.
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.
