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.
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.
Arnold… ( reserved )
Meet the very handsome lurcher boy Arnold. He is approx 1yo, and really happy friendly boy. He gets on well with other dogs, and has not taken any notice of the cats ( but, we are not homing him as cat friendly ) so he could well be with some work and time. Arnold is not a big lad at only 21″ to the shoulder. He is currently in Ireland, but is neutered and vaccinated, so he is ready to travel once a home offer come’s along.
Arnold is a young boy who loves getting ear rubs. He is a playful and will enjoy long walks. He would not be suitable for a home that would leave him all day to go to work.
If you would like to foster or adopt Arnold then please get in touch by either contacting us on the NGR Page or completing our adoption form.

Pedro – in foster in the UK
Meet Pedro…he is a stunning black greyhound looking for his forever home. He is currently in foster in Ireland, but will arrive in the UK on 11th May and into a UK foster home. Pedro was born in December 2015 and is a lovely sociable lad.
Pedro has taken to being in a new home like a duck to water. He has been totally clean indoors. He does not like cats. He is being walked on a harness, as he is quite keen at the moment. But, its a whole new world that he hasn’t seen before, so lots of new smells and things to see.
This stunning girl is Sansa ( off Game of Thrones ) she is approx one year old and is currently in foster in Ireland with her sister who is also looking for a forever home ( Arya ) Well behaved and clean indoors, Sansa is quite food orientated and as such will be easy to teach., and work on recall.
Foster mum is happy to let either of the girls off lead, but this would need to be done slowly and only after a bond has been built up with Sansa. Home checks and adoption fee’s apply. Being a young lurcher girl, its better that Sansa goes to a home where someone is around most of the time. A bored dog can be a destructive one ! She is great with other dogs, lead training may need some work with a harness.
Old Man River – a fine boy – don’t over look this lad.
We have had this handsome boy on our books for 3 months now. Which in itself is odd. Our oldie’s are normally snapped up. River is a great dog, fit and healthy, good teeth, and he loves zooms. Yes, he is 9 years old…….a real puppy at heart
He is clean in the house, and loves his sleep. He enjoys his toys and being around people. His foster mum and dad, think he is star boy, and recently took him their holiday…… thats how well behaved he is ! His foster mum loves him to bits, River is a loving friendly boy, who craves human attention. He doesn’t like cats., and he prefer’s his own company, he loves his toys, and going in the car.
He can be a little funny with other dogs occasionally. Not all, but some. His foster mum can tell you everything you need to know about River. He is a fine boy, he truly deserves a new and forever home.
Currently in foster in Norwich.
LOOKING FOR HIS FOREVER HOME.
He is a chilled lad who would make a fabulous companion. He is not cat friendly.
Gorgeous gorgeous Sam. Born 15/06/16. He was going to be pts as he wouldn’t chase on the track but thankfully his trainer stepped in and asked us to take him. Sam is good on the lead. He is currently kennelled with a male lurcher and female Greyhound with no issues. Sam Bless, is a bit shut down at the moment.
He’s unsure about us but I’m positive he’ll come out of his shell over the next few weeks. Sam would prob be best suited to a calm home, maybe child free. He weighs about 35 kgs and stands at 70cms tall ❤

Pocket size Poppy ( reserved )
😂😂Poppy is female mini terrier. Aged 6 years old .. she cannot live with cats.. She was surrendered as she was no longer wanted by her family. She has suffered a trauma to her head so her eye is slightly damaged and her head is caved in one side. She can however see from her eye.
She is nervous of sudden movements and especially of movements around her head. So new owners must be slow and steady with her. A home without small kids is needed. She can live with other dogs but not over bostrious dogs as she will tell them off as she minds her eye. She is fully crate trained and keeps her crate spotless .. houstraining is a work in progress.
Mika ( adopted )
Mika’s first day in foster, and he is doing great. He has been clean indoors, great with the other dogs inc a JRT., he is a food driven lad for the moment. ALL food and bins would need to be put away. Standing, this is one tall lad. He is an exceedingly happy, loving, friendly Deerhound X.

Wesley ( reserved )
Meet pure bred whippet Wesley., this stunning little chap is just adorable. He was taken to a farmer about 18months ago., the people wanted the farmer to shoot him. Obviously the farmer didn’t and NGR homed Wesley around a year ago.
However, things have changed and this Whippie boy is now looking for a home once again. He can be left as an only dog for 4/5 hours. He has a sensitive tummy and is currently on Skinners sensitive. He has three small meals each day. He is clean in the house, and will indicate if he needs the toilet by standing at the door. He will sit, and give paw. He sleeps where he feels like it at night time. He is a blue brindle. Age approx 4yo. Neutered.
We are looking for someone who will work with Wesley as he can be reactive to some dogs, whilst on the lead. His currently owner muzzles him on walks. But, as this is there first dog, and no experience on how to handle this. Until we have Wesley back in our care and into a foster place, we don’t know how bad this is, and what triggers it. Wesley would at this time, be better as an only dog. That may not be the case, but we will need to assess him. our adoption form can be found on our website

James ( reserved )
Today we had the absolute pleasure of going out to meet James in his foster home and do a photo shoot. James is a greyhound X who has been waiting for his forever home for nearly a year after he was found running along a busy main road with an injured leg.
He was rescued and taken to the vets for xrays and scans, where it was determined that the leg injury was an old one. This has given him a slightly odd gait, but it doesn’t stop him from doing zoomies and having fun! He enjoys playing with his ball, and will happily have a game of fetch with you. James is approximately 4 years old, and is such a friendly and affectionate boy, and not too big measuring only 24″ to the shoulder.
He is great with other dogs, adores attention, loves people, but he doesn’t like cats or wet weather!

Bowie ( reserved )
ANOTHER CAT FRIENDLY DOG.!!!!
Meet Bowie, a beautiful male saluki cross
approx 18/24months old. He was found wondering after the storm passed through Ireland.
He was starving, freezing and in need to some medical treatment., he is now safe and recovering in a foster home.
Bowie was not chipped and has been through the correct procedure to enable him to be re homed with NGR in the UK.
As you can see, he gets on fine with the cat, the kids and the resident dogs. He has been a very good boy. His new foster family are waring on some basic training, as its likely Bowie has never been in a home before.
This will probably need to be carried on when he makes the move to a new & forever home.
Bowie is a little shy, but once he gains your confidence he will be your best mate. He is 26/27″to the shoulder.
I know what you’re thinking . . . . stunning !!?

Danni came into our care on Sunday evening .. The people who found her believe that she was thrown from a car earlier on in the day .. She then later turned up on a green in Roscrea where locals called us and we went to pick her up .. Danni is only young.. a pup of only 8 months old .. She’s not your typical fun loving pup.. she cowers when you touch her .. she has painful mange that is so sore she’s ripped holes in her skin trying to scratch it away .. She is covered in old and new scars.. Scars that are deep and never received vet treatment. When Danni walks she is crippled in pain .. her legs and joints are stiff from the impact of either hitting the road when she was thrown out of the car or from the abuse we believe she received. Danni is one of the lucky ones .. she came across caring people who found time to find our number and wait with her until we picked her up. Thanks to them Danni now has a future. Danni has seen our vet, been treated for her mange and sores and has also been xrayed to check for broken bones. She was not microchipped so no one can be held responsible for her condition

Ariel – ( adopted )
Ariel is a pretty girl with a beautiful shiny coat and a lovely nature to match. Born in July 2015, Ariel was retired from racing after damaging her shoulder ligaments over a year ago, so this gives her an odd gait when walking and running. Ariel travels well, and enjoys doing zoomies for short periods of time in the paddock. She has been in a foster home since Christmas and this is what her foster Mum has to say about her.
This is what Ariel’s new say about her.
Ariel is a sweet natured, loving, gorgeous black girl who loves fusses and cuddles. She is clean in the house and lets you know when she wants to go outside by standing near to the back door. She loves to eat, sleep, sniff around in the garden, oh and did I mention eat and sleep? She is still unsure of the vacuum cleaner but will get out of the way if she thinks it is getting to close to her. Ariel loves going on walks but because of her front leg she can find it very tiring, she goes on very short and very slow strolls.
She manages very well and has taught herself how to compensate for her leg, she is very confident going up and down stairs, running around in the garden, bending down to eat grass and digging. Ariel can be a little nervous around strangers but we have found that if every one ignores her and lets her do her own thing she will soon show an interest and start sniffing around. She can also be nervous of loud sudden noises, we haven’t had her during firework season so don’t know how she reacts. She takes a very keen interest in cats and likes to see the squirrels and rabbits jumping and scurrying around, we even came across a rat which she got very excited about, so far she hasn’t shown any interest in other dogs.
Ariel gets on very well with our own greyhound girl Nesta, When Ariel first arrived she really wasn’t sure about Nesta and was very shy and nervous, but with careful introductions and lots of positive encouragement she soon overcame this and within a short period of time they have become firm friends. Ariel likes to know exactly what is going on with in the house, she is very clever and very curious. She knows how to open a nearly shut door, unafraid of squeezing through smallish gaps, is able to counter surf and likes to follow us around to see if she can help.
We have left Ariel and Nesta alone for short periods about 20 – 30 mins with no problems ( as long as nothing of interest is left within nose reach!) We came back to very happy waggy tailed girl who wanted lots of fuss and cuddles. When she first arrived all we could see was a beautiful black girl with a ‘wobbly’ front leg and we felt so sorry for her.
However she has been with us for 3 weeks and we now see beyond the ‘wobbly’ leg and see ‘Ariel’ the most beautiful, clever, cheeky, funny, gorgeous, loving girl, ever. She is so very special and really deserves to find a special sofa that she can call her own.
Echo lurcher female 3+yrs

When she’s alone she is very shy and scared, So she will require a home with someone around and at home most of the time. Echo is starting to settle into paws in Ireland, but still needs her dig friends with her to help her feel safe. She is starting to join in with the other dogs when they play with staff which is always great to see. Echo is good on the lead. Echo will travel to the UK when we have a home offer.
Cody – CAT FRIENDLY – ( reserved )
Meet the wonderful Cody, he is a lurcher boy aged approx 2yo. Cody has not had a great start, and quite fearful to start with, when he first arrived in his foster home in Ireland. However, he has grown and now know that humans can be very loving. His foster mum is gong to be heart broken when Cody leaves, as he is such a great boy. His best mate is the household cat. ( a video of he and the cat playing can be seen on our Facebook page ) He is clean indoors, walk’s fine on the lead, great with other dogs and just the most sweetest boy ever!
if you would like to adopt Cody then please get in touch by either contacting us on the NGR FB Page or completing our adoption form.

This beautiful lab X lurcher girl is a great dog., with some initial training she will be a wonderful companion. Age approx 10/11months old, she is still a puppy. Mia is not a big girl, but she is sturdy and full of play and bounce. A home with older children would suit her better, as she knock toddlers over.
She will need some lead training, until she went to her foster home, Mia never wore a collar, and had never been on lead. A harness will help with training. Mia needs a home with someone about a lot. Pup’s can get bored when left for long periods. They can get destructive when they are bored. Good walks and lots of stimulation is the key to a lab X pup !
Diesel ( reserved )
Diesel, sadly has a sad story. He arrived approx 2 weeks and has been a very good boy, sadly his new owner has suffered a serious stroke and we need to find Diesel another home.
He is approx 2 years old and a really good, happy friendly lad. He is still with his new mum and dad, but, with such a change in circumstances, they are struggling to cope with with this massive family trauma and a new dog in the house.
She doesn’t like to be left on her own and will cry for you to come back. Ginger is full of energy and loves to run and play with you. She is strong on the lead but does eventually calm down and walk easy. She is house trained.
Ginger would be better with another dog for company and a home with someone at home most of the time. She is a typical energetic lurcher girl. Happy, playful and full of energy.

Meet Mr Ed., this little guy was found dumped by the road side, and in a poor way., flea ridden and full of mange. He is approx 1yo and a great little lad. He is good with kids, and currently goes off lead. But, this would need time, and building of trust to be able to do this in a new home.
