Sadie is a white and black greyhound
Sadie - Klopps Wee Sadio Greyhound
SADIE
SADIE

Sadie is a very pretty white and black greyhound who was born on the 1st December 2016.  She has never raced because she is a very nervous girl who needs a great deal of time to get to know people.
She's house trained, spayed, inoculated and microchipped.  Sophie is a real character once she gets to know you.  Will smile at you, wag her tail, lick your hand and even play crouching down at you.  She's a lovely dog but needs time to settle in.
Whilst she was being spayed the vet noticed a hernia so that was repaired at the same time.
She knows her name and will run around in circles if she's frightened looking for somewhere to escape to.
For the first few days, apart from feeding and toileting we left her much to herself in her crate, which had the door open so she came out if she wanted to see what was going on. She soon realised she was missing out when the others got treats and cuddles and each day is seeing her become more confident around us. She is wagging her tail a lot and she's a smiler!
Whoever adopts Sadie must give her time to get to know them, not to expect too much from her at the beginning, preferably have another dog she can bond with and have a very secure back garden because when she panics she can jump!

Can you help us find Sadie a home?



King is a lovely black ex-racing greyhound
KING
KING

King had been with us a while looking for a new home, but because of one thing and another he is now back with his previous owner/trainer living in his home until we can find King a very special home of his own. 
The home King needs is with an experienced greyhound owner, one where he will be an only dog who can be given lots of love and affection, one where there is a garden for him to sit and run around in, and one where there are no young children or the grandchildren rarely visit. Having said all this though, we have since discovered there was a male greyhound living in the foster home where King was staying and where many of the issues arose.  The male greyhound we have since discovered does NOT want another male in the house and this could be why King was behaving the way he was, which was out of character and none of which we experienced here.
King's puppyhood and early years had been awful and he would have died had his current owner/trainer not been told of his plight and saved his life by purchasing him.  He took King into his home where he brought him back to good health with a
lot of TLC, and to thank him King won many races for him.  In view of King's past and present circumstances I didn't have the heart to send him to another Greyhound Trust branch where he may remain the rest of his life, so I spoke to his previous owner/trainer who agreed to have him back.  He loves King dearly and doesn't want to see any harm come to him, so he will live with him in his home until we find King a special home of his own, and if that doesn't come along he will keep King forever.

Can you help us find King a home?

BO
BO

Bo (Utopia Becky) is 9 years old and weighs 21kg. 
She is house trained, spayed, inoculated, microchipped and had a dental last September when she had her booster inoculation. 
Bo came to us following a decline in her owner's health that meant her not being able to look after Bo so she came here for us to find her a new home.
A medical at our vets shows her to be fit and well and although the teeth she has are a little dirty the vet said they should come okay with chews and teeth cleaning.
Bo is a very gentle and quiet girl who just wants loving, but if another young or bouncy dog crosses her path she will certainly put it in it's place and tell it to behave and respect the elders. Bo walks beautifully on the lead and travels well in a car.
