New Hounds on the Block
Some new dogs arrived at the kennels this week, hopefully they won't have to spend too much of their retirement at the rescue but we know the staff and volunteers will make them feel at home. The following information is taken from the Greyhound Rescue Fife "Please Choose Me" page;
ALFIE is a character. He gets on well with everybody and everything but is quite strong on a lead at the start of a walk. He travels well in a car and absolutely loves to be with people. A very nice greyhound.
ROSIE is a very friendly little girl. She pulls a bit at the start of a walk but can be controlled with her lead and collar. She is excellent in a car and loves going out with people. Some family will grow to love her very much.
KEV is a beautiful big boy. He is easy to walk on a lead and has a very friendly disposition. He is never happier than when someone is petting him. He will be a great family pet.
ROSCO is a beautiful black dog. He is great with all the other greyhounds but slightly strong on a lead. This can easily be trained out of him. He loves people and is always wanting to go walkies with them. A great traveller in a car. Will be a good loving pet. He is neutered.
DELTA is a gorgeous girl with no aggression at all. She is an absolute treat to walk on a lead and is the greyhound that everyone would love to have. She is an excellent traveller in a car and is good with children. A very quiet girl.
SONNY is a beautiful black boy. He is strong on a lead and would suit a young, fit person. He is an extremely happy dog who absolutely loves people. He is good with greyhounds but not too happy with small dogs. He would be an excellent house pet.
BONNIE is one of our most beautiful greyhounds. She is also very human friendly. However she is the strongest dog on a lead in our kennels. She is going to take training to check this out of her. Once she is controlled she will be a fabulous pet.
SHERMAN is a beautiful dog. He is a bit strong on a lead but this can be easily trained out of him. He gets on well with greyhounds and loves people but perhaps a bit strong and bouncy for young children. Otherwise he'd make a great pet.
ROCKY is a dear big soul. He is quiet and friendly and not difficult to walk on a lead. He gets on great with all the other dogs and gives us no problems whatsoever. He will be a very nice pet for some family. He deserves a very good home.
Hounds With Homes
This week the beautiful Delta has found her forever home, we wish her all the best.
Dog of the Month
September has come and gone and September's Dog of the Month Joe is still looking for a home. Hopefully Joe will find his forever home soon but it's time for him to move over and make way for October's Dog of the Month!
GAV is a nice big black boy. He is very friendly and makes a big fuss of everyone he meets. He is easy to walk on a lead and will travel for ever in your car. He gets on great with people and very well with our other greyhounds. A nice pet greyhound.
One to Watch
You might remember last week that we wrote about Blanche, a loveable greyhound with a beautiful face and personality to match;
She needs some work to be less forceful on the lead and so Mum bought her a Gentle Leader to try and do some training with her.
The great news today is that Blanche responded well to the Gentle Leader when she tried it out last Sunday. With regular training Blanche's problem will be a lot more manageable and the Gentle Leader might help her to find her forever home.
Mum also tried out the Gentle Leader on some other hounds at the kennels who have been identified as having a problem with excessive pulling on the lead. We think it's great that a device that costs under £10 will bring homeless hounds one step closer to their families.
Our thoughts go out to Bonnie Elder who is not doing too well right now. We're wishing her a full recovery and send big hugs to her humans during this difficult time.
That's it for now folks, as always more information about Greyhound Rescue Fife can be found at their website and check out their blog here.
