Rockie (Ballyfore Rockie) (DE - PRQ) is a black male ex-racing greyhound who arrived here on Friday 25th October 2019.  He was born on 1st November 2013 and has had a tough time so far. Rockie was homed by his original owner/trainer to someone who had him 6 months then asked if his owner/trainer could look after him while they were on holiday and never came back for him.  He was then homed to a family with a small child where he lived about 3 or 4 months, but through no fault of his own he was returned again.  Rockie then came here where he was neutered, put 3 kg. on, settled and became a really lovely, happy dog whom everyone liked.

Jet (Tromora Jetson) is a black Greyhound
JET
(Partially Sighted)
JET

Jet (Tromora Jetson) (SY - MUK) is a large handsome black greyhound who only trialed twice and never raced.  He arrived here on Saturday 7th September 2019 and was born on the 18th January 2017. Jet weighs 33 kg., is house trained, neutered, inoculated and microchipped. He is very popular with everyone he meets because he has a very sociable and happy nature.  Jet is good with children but they need to be taught how to approach him with him having minimal sight, he shows no interest with other breeds of dogs when out walking and gets on fine with them when introduced.
During his schooling to become a racing greyhound and his initial runs he kept bumping into the other dogs and at first it was thought to be clumsiness, but during a routine check with the vet found something a miss with his eyes. Tests with an eye specialist found him to have Inherited Retinal Atrophy. He has no sight in his right eye and partial in his left, although how much is difficult to work out.  He will eventually have severe sight loss which may lead to eventual blindness. With this in mind we are training him with commands as he is doing them now so he knows them and will follow what we say, which will help him as his sight deteriorates.

a nice temperament and loves coming for cuddles. He's a really nice lad who is house trained, neutered, inoculated, microchipped and recently had a dental when 10 teeth were removed.
Mac is a really affectionate dog who gets on well with children and ignores other breeds of dogs when he out and about.   He spent the day at Malham Show and was perfect amongst the crowds, vehicles moving around and all the hussle and bustle of a busy showground.  Mac is also perfect wandering around town, in pubs and cafes, walks lovely on a lead and travels well in a car.  He's currently spending frequent days out with one of the volunteers, which he thoroughly enjoys.

Alice (Catrigg Cloud) brindle Greyhound

ALICE
ALICE

Alice (Catrigg Cloud) (QN - ZSA) is a pretty female brindle ex-racing greyhound who arrived here on Monday 22nd July 2019.  She was born in June 2015, weighs 28 kg., is house trained, spayed on the 23rd July 2019, inoculated and microchipped.
When Alice first arrived she was shy of people, but as time passed she's come out of her shell and will run with the other dogs to greet who ever has arrived. You can't mistake Alice as her ears lay in a most unusual position, and even putting them right is to no avail.  Once she gets to know you she is an extremely affectionate companion. To begin with she always slept on the dog bed by my side of the bed so she could be as near to me as possible, or on the bed! She now often sleeps on the settee in the lounge and is quite happy there.
Alice walks beautifully on the lead, will sit, is alright with other breeds of dogs, Once she gets to know children she is fine with them but she needs to go to them first rather than the other way around.
Alice had a little hard skin on the sides of a couple of her pads on her front and back right feet, possibly caused by the bends while racing.  She found them quite painful when she arrived so will scream when you go anywhere near them, but over time she has begun to trust us and I now gently rub cream on all her feet to soften it.

Mason (Poolie Mason) (XBJ2) is Patch's litter brother being born in March 2015.  He arrived here on Sunday 14th July 2019, weighs 31.0 kg., is house trained, neutered, inoculated and microchipped.  Mason is black and has a lovely calm laid back nature most of the time, but when he's happy to see you he comes out of his shell and will give the occasional playful puppy nip on your hands or behind!  I wouldn’t class him as being a demanding dog at all, is okay with children and from what we've seen so far is alright with other breeds of dogs including small ones.  He walks lovely on a lead and travels well in a car. Mason spent the day at Torver Country Showground, which he handled really well.  He's also been for a day out to Bowness-on-Windermere where he walked through the ducks and swans (muzzled and on a lead) without much concern.

Lottie (Short Odds) black greyhound

LOTTIE
LOTTIE

Lottie went to her new home on the 14th May 2019 and was very happy there until the end of July.  Lottie's owners are caravan park managers and their previous greyhound settled to the life well.  However, when the school holidays began and the park filled with happy, playful children Lottie found it all too much became stressful. Even in her own secure garden she could hear them and it disturbed her so much her owners, despite loving her, thought it best she come back to us and we find her an enviroment less busy and one where she can feel more relaxed.
Lottie is a pretty black ex-racing greyhound who was born on the 24th November 2013.  She weighs 28kg, is house trained, spayed, inoculated and microchipped.  Lottie is a gentle girl with a very loving nature, is okay with other breeds of dogs, walks super on the lead and travels well in a car. However, she can be a bit unsettled with some new things, but with the right guidance she will overcome this.

Fifi is housetrained, inoculated, microchipped and to be spayed in the beginning of October because her seasn was suppressed on Monday 12th August 2019.
At the moment she's a bit pully on the lead, but that may be because of the excitement of the walk and we are sure the more structured walks she has the better she will become.  She has a lovely nature, is okay with children and travels well in a car.
