Dogs welcome, large or small, one or more. A Greyhound haven!

The voluntary work Jenny and Stuart started in July 2004 is a memorial to their darling Penny. Without her coming into their lives none of this would have happened.

Please ring for an appointment to come and see the greyhounds and have a chat. You are most welcome, but as we run a bed and breakfast it is essential you ring and arrange a date and time to visit.

Become a friend and view Our Profile to see what's happening at the branch and to follow some of our ex-foster greyhounds.

Fosterers are a valuable part of greyhound rescue in that another greyhound is living life away from the kennels and taking the first steps towards getting used to the family way of life. If you live in the South Lakes or the surrounding area and would like to foster a greyhound until we can find him or her a new home.

Tonto's Diary
* The branch kennel at the bottom of our garden is where * and the other resident(s) will be for the first day or so until he gets to know the other greyhounds. He has use of our garden and paddock, and once he gets to know the other dogs he will be allowed in the house during the day and all the dogs will then take it in turn to sleep in the house at night, so they become use to sleeping in both the kennel and the house.

10th July 2015
This afternoon Tonto went off to his new home where we hope he will have a long and happy life with his new family, which includes 5 cats.
12th July 2015
We received a phone call this morning from Tonto's new owners asking for some advice. Tonto wouldn't stand up this morning and when he did it was a struggle to get his back end up. There appeared to be something wrong with his back legs. His new owners have some laminate flooring and we wondered if he'd slipped and done the splits on this. They said he was okay last night after his last walk.
We heard later the vet had come out to see him and gave him a pain killing injection and some Metacam, and suggested seeing how things went in a couple of days or so.
16th July 2015
We received a call today from Tonto's new owners saying Tonto had been to the vets for an x-ray in an attempt to discover why he was having a problem with his back end. They found all was okay, but a closer inspection of his foot found he'd been bitten because his foot was swollen, bitten possibly by a horse fly.
30th July 2015
We've had Tonto here for a few days under assessment following one or two settling in issues that we couldn't understand. We’ve found if Tonto doesn’t want to go outside and we put a lead on him he will walk to the door so long as you walk alongside him and don’t pull the lead hard.  Once you get to the door if he won’t go outside at this point then walk out the door with him still on his lead.  Once he’s fully outside you can take his lead off him and step back inside and he will wander off and do his toilet.
1st August 2015
Tonto's new owners came to collect him today and we've just heard they are home safe, Tonto has had a good nosey around and is now having a nap.
10th August 2015
We heard today that things are going really well. Tonto is happy in his favourite place and there have been no separation anxiety issues for a while now. Tonto is still having problems with his feet, he won't leave the garden to go for a walk, but interestingly he loves going out in the car and will walk back home! They went to a rescue dog event yesterday,and he loved it. As his new owners are writing this he's on his back with his legs up in the air - must be happy.
