    GREYHOUND X LURCHER 23/24""

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. THIS IS HOW HE LOOKED WHEN HE ARRIVED AT THE RESCUE. SEE HOW HE HAS COME ON... GORGEOUS.. HIS THREAD GOES INTO SEVERAL PAGES. Little Scooby was brought in from holding kennels. He is now being fostered on the Isle of Wight along with one female Lurche, and three children. He is house-trained, good with children, but OTT off-lead at the moment so perhaps older children. Scooby was on death row, as his time was up, but because we had offered space he was spared. He is probably nearer to a year than 18 months. Scooby is now neutered. He can be reactive on lead with male dogs and we are working on this, so an experienced home of this type of behaviour would be preferable. We do not rehome young dogs to anyone who works more than 4 hours daily, or shift workers. scooby is loving, loyal and obedient indoors, it's just his socialization with other male dogs that needs working on. We want the very best for the dogs in our care. For more info please phone or email the contact above. This Rescue does strict homechecks and even takes up Vet references.

    Quiet, sad little man. 25 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. This young man was found abandoned. He is now neutered and vaccinated. A very loving and easy going boy, being fostered in Essex, so we are sure he will come out of that shell pretty quickly. Being fostered with two small dogs and three children. More updates will follow from his foster mum. We do not rehome dogs to anyone who works full time. I'm afraid due to past experiences, we do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not rehome further than 200 miles from Harlow, Essex, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details.

    Quiet, sad little man. 24 "

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. This young man was found abandoned. Sadly after going into kennels he jumped out of the back of the transport car and was loose for two weeks. He was so scared of everything. Luckily he was caught and has was with a Greyhound Rescue for a few weeks. It is no place, kennels, for a dog that just wants some love and quiet. Since coming into the Rescue he has flourished. A beautiful boy who loves to play with all the other dogs in the home and on walks. His thread goes into 9 pages so make sure you see all of his lovely photos. Comet really is a fun loving boy. We do not rehome dogs to anyone who works out of the home full time. I'm afraid due to past experiences, we do not now rehome to anyone who works shiftwork. We do not rehome further than 200 miles from Harlow, Essex, our Admin base. We homecheck and even take up Vet references. Email for more details.

    Saluki/Whippet X. 23"

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. Izzy is currently being fostered in Hertfordshire/Essex border with two female Lurchers. Her foster mum would have dearly loved to keep Izzy, but one of her urrent dogs is bullying her and doesn't want her in the pack. Little Izzy has a lovely disposition and so we all feel it best to rehome her. She is now neutered, vaccinated and ready for a new home. We do not know her Cat status I'm afraid, but is currently living with three lovely young children and is being a poppet. We want the best for the dogs in our care. We do not rehome our dogs to anyone who works more than 4 hours, and only rehome young pups like Izzy where someone is around most of the time. For more info please phone or email the contact above. This Rescue does strict homechecks and even takes up Vet references. We regret we do not now rehome to partner shift workers.

    Beddie X. 25"

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. Daisy will be neutered shortly and then ready for rehoming. She came into the Rescue as she was too lively for her previous family, and with some lively children in the family Daisy reacted and is said to have bitten an Adult trying to pick up her bone. We are not, therefore, looking to rehome her to anyone with young children. She is lively, has recall and is living with the Foster's own Lurcher in Essex. But she is not happy for new dogs to come into the home, so will be better rehomed as an only dog. We are looking for a Lurcher savvy home, especially with Beddie X Saluki types, who can be stubborn. SHE IS NOT CAT FRIENDLY. We want the best for the dogs in our care. We do not rehome our dogs to anyone who works more than 4 hours, and Daisy may need someone around most of the time. For more info please phone or email the contact above. This Rescue does strict homechecks and even takes up Vet references.

    Whippet X. 22"

    PLEASE DO NOT RING AFTER 6 P.M. It is not known if Poppy is neutered already. Poppy was Adopted by her owners from a mixed Rescue. She is a lively happy girlie, but has tendancies to outrun and then pin down small dogs, which means she cannot be let off lead with smaller dogs around. She does have recall, but this goes out the window when she is running with other dogs. Poppy is currently in Surrey. We are looking for a Lurcher savvy home. We want the best for the dogs in our care. We do not rehome our dogs to anyone who works more than 4 hours, and Poppy may need someone around most of the time. For more info please phone or email the contact above. This Rescue does strict homechecks and even takes up Vet references. We regret we do not now rehome to partner shift workers.
