Adopt a Dog

The following dogs are looking for a new home.

Name: Arnie

Sex: dog

Age: 3 and three quarters

Information: If you like very tall and strikingly handsome brindle dogs, then greyhound Arnie could be the dog for you. He has recently been retired from racing and is looking for his forever home. Arnie is such a friendly, good natured dog. He was born on 28 August 2013 and is in the kennels in Dorset.

   

Name: Bungle

Sex: dog

Age: 6-7 years

Information: GSD cross Bungle is a good natured, friendly dog who is very good around other dogs. He is looking for home with no children. Bungle is in the kennels in Devon.

   

Name: Debs

Sex: bitch

Age: 3 years

Information: Debs is a beautiful blue greyhound who has come into the rescue kennels after being retired from racing. She is not very tall for a greyhound, about 25-26" at the shoulder. Debs is good with other hounds, and is sharing her kennel with greyhound Sam. They adore each other and we would love to be able to find a home for them where they can stay together, but we realise that this may not be possible. If they are re-homed separately, it must be to a home where there is already another greyhound. Debs can live with children aged 5 or over. She is in the kennels in Dorset. We only ask for one adoption fee if someone gives a home to two of the dogs in the kennels.

   

Name: Fagan

Sex: dog

Age: 3 and a half years

Information: Greyhound Fagan ( on the right in the photo0 was retired from racing with his best friend Sylvia, but she found a home and now Fagan is all alone in his kennel. He is really friendly dog and gets on well with other big dogs, but he has not not yet met any very small dogs. Fagan was born on 18 September 2103 and is black and average size, and is in the kennels in Dorset.

   

Name: Jayjay

Sex: dog

Age: 2 and a half years

Information: Jayjay is a handsome black greyhound who has recently come into the rescue kennels. He has a very gentle nature and is good with other greyhounds, but he has never met any small dogs, so care will need to be taken around them. Jayjay is looking for a home with a female greyhound or lurcher, or as an only dog, as long as he is not left on his own for more than 4 hours a day. Jayjay is in the kennels in Dorset.

   

Name: Katie

Sex: bitch

Age: 5 years

Information: Retired greyhound Katie is a big, beautiful, very friendly girl with a very laid back nature. She is black with lovely white snowflake-like spots. Katie was born on 27 September 2011. As she is a big greyhound we feel that a home where any children are at least 8 years old is best. She is so gentle that she would never hurt any child, but because she is tall she could accidently bump into a small child. Katie is in the kennels in Dorset.

   

Name: Penny

Sex: bitch

Age: about 6 years

Information: Beautiful brindle lurcher Penny has been in the rescue kennels and hoping to find a home for a long time. She was found as stray in Wales and taken in by an inner city rescue. While there Penny she was attacked by another dog, which made her wary of other dogs. Since coming to the SDS rescue, she has seemed to be OK while near other dogs, so hopefully she is starting to overcome her fear of them. She has had one of her toes removed. Penny is very affectionate and loves people. We feel that she would be happiest in a home where she is the only dog. Penny can be left for a few hours. She is in the kennels in Devon.

   

Name: Poppy

Sex: bitch

Age: about 2 years

Information: Staffy Poppy came into the rescue as a stray and when she had her vet check she was found to be pregnant. A recent scan has shown that sadly she has had a miscarriage. Poppy will shortly be spayed and as soon as she has recovered from her operation she will be ready to be re-homed. She is a lovely natured, very friendly girl who gets on well with other dogs. Poppy is in the kennels in Devon. RESERVED

   

Name: Queenie

Sex: bitch

Age: 5 years

Information: Greyhound Queenie has been retired from racing and is now looking for her forever home. She is a friendly, beautiful natured girl who is good with other dogs. Queenie is very food orientated, so offering her food treats when her teaching new commands should make training easy. Queenie is in Dorset.

   

Name: Sam

Sex: dog

Age: 3 years

Information: Handsome brindle greyhound Sam has been retired from racing and is now looking for a warm home and a sofa, bed or duvet to stretch out on and relax. He is very good with other hounds, and is sharing his kennel with greyhound Debs. They adore each other and we would love to be able to find a home for them where they can stay together, but we realise that this may not be possible. If they are re-homed separately, it must be to a home where there is already another greyhound. He is not that tall, no more or maybe a bit less than average size for a male greyhound. Sam is a gentle boy who has been around children, so he can live with children aged 5 or over. He is in the kennels in Dorset. We only ask for one adoption fee if someone gives a home to two of the dogs in the kennels.

   

Name: Skye

Sex: bitch

Age: about 8 years

Information: Skye is a lovely English Bull Terrier cross who is approximately 8 years old. Skye is a lovely natured girl who is so affectionate with people and always wants lots of love and cuddles. She is still very active and loves her walks and enjoys a play so would like somewhere where she can still get out and about a lot and investigate her surroundings. Skye only knows a couple of commands, however she is very focused and eager to learn and we have found that a few tasty treats definitely help. As with all our dogs we would recommend carrying on her training with positive reinforcement to help her progress. Skye appears to be sociable with the dogs; however she CAN’T share her home with small animals or small dogs. Sky is suitable to be homed with children 6yrs +.
