Greyhounds Needing a Home
Here is our current list of greyhounds needing a home. Choosing the right dog for you is important and we will do our utmost to ensure you are both suited.
Our adoption fee is a minimum of £150.00 – each home is checked – all dogs are neutered unless they are too young.
Note: NGR is generally against rehoming a greyhound in a home with children under the age of 5years old.
This is because there is a re-adjustment process for any rescue dog as he/she gets used to home life; small children will not understand this. For the safety of the child and the hound, it may be better to wait until children have enough maturity to comprehend a hound’s need for a gentle introduction to a home.
Dellie ( reserved )
A beautiful girl, meet Dellie. She is currently with a rescue in Ireland called Haven. She is a failed coursing girl. At only 18months old, she is already a waste product! Dellie is fab on the lead, and travels well. She is an affection girl. Dellie at the moment is not small dog / cat friendly. But, with time the small dog situation will get better. Its just that Dellie has only been encouraged to chase small animals, through no fault of her own.
Great with big dogs.
