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 did 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?

ROCKIE
ROCKIE

Rockie (Ballyfore Rockie) is a black male ex-racing greyhound who was born in November 2013.  He weighs 33.0 kg,.  Rockie was homed by his original owner/trainer to someone who asked if he could look after him while they were away on holiday and never returned for him.  He was then homed to a family with a small child, but through no fault of his own he was to be returned again.  Rather than going into a rescue kennel he came here so he can continue living in a home. 
Rockie is house trained, neutered, microchipped and his inoculations are being brought up to date.  He has a lovely nature, but with being left on his own he can suffer anxiety in the form of whimpering which we hope we can resolve now he's here.  He walks nicely on a lead, is okay with children and travels well in a car.

Can you help us find Rockie a home?
