Misty (Urgent Assisted Rehoming)

Misty is an 11-year-old greyhound cross. She has lived with kids and is very gentle. She loves laying around in the sun and sleeping on the lounge is her favourite pastime. She loves walks and loves to be around people.

She has had limited social interactions with other dogs and those that she has been good after initial getting to know.

She is desexed, chipped, vaccinated and heart wormed has regular checks at Abbotsbury Vet. Her current owners want her to be in a home environment as she thinks she is a person.

Her parents have to move and no pets are permitted. If you think you can help this gorgeous girl find a home and a lounge, please contact us asap.

We urgently need to find her a new home before 19 July.

Pet of the Week – Frankie

Hi, I’m Frankie and I’m a bit of a goofball looking for someone who loves life as much as I do. I love showing off, having fun, and any bit of excitement really. I would be suited to a home without anything small and fluffy and kid’s over 10 (it’s not that I don’t like little ones but I get so excited so I might knock them over). What I’m thinking is – I could be your personal trainer.  I could take you on walks, and see if you could keep up with me if we did a sprint or two. I’ll have you fit in no time! All I ask in return is for a comfy couch, good food, and lots of love.

Jimmy

Hi! I’ve heard there are lots of famous people called Jimmy… Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Page, Jimmy Little, even a President… but you haven’t met the best of them yet. Oh, haven’t I introduced myself? That would be me, I’m Jimmy! Since I arrived at the kennels, I’ve been using my smooth moves and big brown eyes to win over the volunteers. I’m a sweet, affectionate and gentle boy. When I’m not lapping up attention, you’ll find me running around with a toy or enjoying a treat. I’m not too bad with other large dogs, but I’m a bit unsure of smaller kids and little dogs, it’s not that I don’t like them… I’ve just never met them before so maybe while I get used to them, best I don’t share my forever home with them.

Johnnie

Hi! I’m Johnnie, a cheeky sort of chap with model good looks! As you can see – I’m really ridiculously good looking and I have the best buns of steel you will ever see and I’m not afraid to show them off. When I’m not flaunting my assets, I love food… toys… food… and oh, did I mention toys? If you have either of those things, I’ll be your best friend forever. Now, when it comes to other dogs I’m not too bad with the larger kind, but those small fluffy aren’t really my thing so none of those at your place please – just lots of toys and food!

Crash

Hi there, they call me Crash… probably because if there’s a couch close to me I MUST crash on it! I just can’t get enough of these creature comforts! So if you’ve got a spare at yours or maybe we can share – that would make me one happy hound. I’m what you might call a gentle giant, and I’m very affectionate – a real heartbreaker! Buuuut sometimes I forget my manners a bit around other dogs and can be fussy who I keep company with so it might be best if I’m your only dog for now, but that’s OK – more couch for you and me!

Glen

Hiya, I’m Glen. I’m a relaxed and chilled out kind of guy looking for my forever home. With my sleek black coat, I’ll turn heads wherever you take me, but I’ll be happy just snuggling on the couch to you too. I’m really just happy to relax close to people, so if you’re into a bit of ‘Netflix and chill’ I might be the guy for you! Being such a relaxed kind of guy, I’m good with dogs big and small so if you’ve got a furry friend for me – that would be OK with me!

Bruce (on trial)

Hi there, the name’s Bruce. Now, I know I have a bit of a tough-guy name, I can assure you it’s all just for the street cred. You won’t be seeing any doggie kung-fu moves from me! Not that I don’t have moves, but they’re all about how I get the volunteers to give me the most cuddles. I’m really just a big softie, a really affectionate boy who is all about the smooches. Of course being this loved up, I’m a pretty chilled out guy so if you’ve got a furry friend for me – big or small – that won’t be a problem.

Lew

Hi, I’m Lew and out of all of my brothers (Bruce and Glen), you might call me the class clown! If greyhounds went to school, I would be sitting in the back row wanting to get out and play. I just want to have fun! I’m a goofy, playful and affectionate boy that you will fall in love with instantly! Being a friendly kind of guy, I’ve got no problems with other dogs, so maybe you’ve got a friend for me?

Charlie

Hi there, I’m Charlie and if tall, dark and handsome is your type – I might just be your guy! Now, the team at GR HQ seem to think I might be a little bit mischievous sometimes (pfffft)- but that’s half the fun, right? It’s true, I am a playful boy but I can also be pretty gentle and chilled out when I need to be. My favourite things are toys and food so if you have either of those at your place, I’ll be putty in your hands and ready to do whatever you say! Even though some people think I’m a bit cheeky, I’m quite well mannered with tiny humans and other large dogs… just not the small fluffy variety.

Sherlock

Hi, I’m Sherlock and I’ve been busy solving the biggest mystery of them all… why I don’t have a home yet! My keen detective skills tell me that if you’ve got loads of toys for me and a well-stocked snack jar, your place might be just the home I’m looking for… and then, well, it’s case closed! All of this investigation work has taught me greyt manners so if you’ve got dogs big or small or even kids, that’s not a problem for me.

Edward

Hi! I’m Edward, and if you’re looking for your Prince Charming – I’m your guy. With my Princely charms, I’m looking for no less than a palace to call my own, a loyal subject or two to serve my meals and chaperone my walks. I’m really not that demanding, except when it comes to cuddles… I don’t think there’s anything better and I’ll always lean on you or rest my head on your shoulder for smooches. I just love them!

Andrew

Hi there, I’m Andrew. I’d like to apply for a home position of Chief Cuddle Officer, where I can perform such duties as ensuring you don’t get cold at night or being your main point of contact when you need cheering up. I come with over 3 years of experience and would like to expand my horizons and gain more experience in the field of cuddles and smooching. Did I mention that I also have excellent networking skills when it comes to meeting new dogs… I’m just  a bit unsure if they’re small and fluffy so best not to have any of those around!
