Wanda  (Boherash Wanda) black Greyhound
DATE OF BIRTH: 02/07/2014
INOCULATED: 05/05/2019

Wanda is a lovely black female ex-racing Greyhound who is house trained, spayed, inoculated, microchipped and has a lovely nature.
She walks lovely on the lead, but is still a little wary of new sounds she hears when out walking.  The more she gets out and about the less this will happen as she gets to realise these noises are common place and won't hurt her. For this reason Wanda can appear to be a little shy to begin with.  She travels well in a car.

Went to her new home on Friday 14th June 2019

Wanda's Diary
23rd May 2019
This afternoon Wanda arrived.  We let her in the garden and introduced her to the other greyhounds one by one in a controlled manner.  The majority she got on fine with, but wasn't averse to putting the younger ones in their place if they didn't approach her calmly.
30th May 2019
This morning Wanda went to the vet to be spayed.  All went well, she was given disolvable stitches and we went back for her in the afternoon.  Back home we popped her in one of the crates in the living room so she could rest and recover in peace.
31st May 2019
This morning Wanda was fine and up and about as if she'd had nothing done to her yesterday.
16th June 2019
This afternoon Wanda's new owners called in to complete all the paperwork and take Wanda home with them.  She was quite happy to get in their car and we wish her a long and happy life with them.
