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.



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.

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.

Betty is a happy, 7 year old female looking for her forever home. Born in July 2010, Betty was retired from racing 5 years ago after injuring her toe. This has no effect on her day to day life, and Betty is in good condition with no health problems. She is a very friendly girl, and is used to other dogs and children, and can be quite lively.

Betty would regularly see the Yorkshire Terrier, Chihuahua, and cat living next door and takes little interest in them. We are unable to say if Betty is cat friendly as our foster homes are not available at the moment. She is well looked after, but due to a change in circumstances Betty is lonely and not able to receive the time and exercise she deserves. If you would be interested in adopting or fostering Betty then please contact us.

Applications through the NGR website please. Home checks and adoption fees apply. 


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.

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

Diego in foster in Ireland ( adopted )

The stunning Diego is available for homing, at not even 20 months old Diego had broken his leg….he is now fixed and ready to find his retirement sofa with someone like you.

Now, because he is quite young, he still has some puppy antics in him, and he loves to play. He enjoys his walks and loves the company of people and other greyhounds.

If you would love Diego in your family then please get in touch.

SJ – Cat friendly !!  ( reserved )

This little lad is SJ he is a  6month old whippet X., he is vaccinated and ready to travel. But he is not yet neutered. So this will have to be factored in any adoption. He is currently in foster in Ireland, with lots of other dogs. SJ is very sociable. He is of a very slight build and stands 20″ tts.  

Puppies are always a bundle of joy. But, they do need some training and guidance. Someone at home to teach little SJ is a must. A bored puppy is a destructive one !  Please don’t apply if you work full time.   SJ is house clean, walks fab on the lead, and although it is not something we encourage, he is crate trained.

SJ could be cat trainable., he does bark at the resident cat., but, with time and the correct and responsible guidance, he would be cat friendly.



Arya is a pretty one year old lurcher girl ( Sansa her sister also looking for a new home ) who is currently in Ireland in a foster home. She has settled in really well. and goes off lead every day with her foster mum.   She is a sociable little lady, house clean, and good with other dogs.    

Like her sister, its hard to home dogs in Ireland, as there are so many stray dogs., her only chance of a good new forever home is to come to the UK. Are you that special person who could fall in love with this girl ?


Gerry Lurcher 4yrs 64cm. Gerry has been at PAWS ( in Ireland )  for 2 years! Gerry was found with some old injuries to his cruicate ligaments, he was treated but as the injuries where so old and he wasn’t in any pain our vets decided against operating on him. for more information on his injuries please contact us.

Gerry loves life he is very happy and friendly. Due to his injuries he has an unusual gait and stand but other than that it doesn’t affect his daily life, he happily goes for walks or runs, he plays with his kennel mates and generally enjoys life.

He is excellent with other dogs.


Archie ( Adopted )

This stunner is Archie he was born on March 13th 2015. He is not a huge GH at 29kg. He is a very obedient lad and very clean.  You will have no problems with initial house training.  Archie can sit on command    ( most greyhounds can’t do this ) and he will give you his paw !     He loves other female dogs, and would be better paired with a girlie. He can be a little dominate with other males.

Archie is currently in Ireland with his owner. She tells us that Archie loves his food, and hates to get out of his bed on wet mornings. So if you’re looking for an easy going lad, this could be the boy for you.

Archie loves his runs in the paddock, and would probably benefit from wearing a harness to start with.  Archie will play ball, although his bring back needs a bit of work lol.    He does the odd tit bit and a good ole ear rub.

If you could offer this handsome boy a new and forever home, please do let us know.

Quill ( adopted )

Quill male lurcher 9+ yrs approx
Quill is a real gentleman he’s very relaxed and easy going. He gets on great with other dogs big and small, male and female. Poor old Quill is deaf, bless him. He is wearing a vibrating collar, and being taught some easy hand signs, so that he can learn some basic commands.  He is such a happy boy, and so agile for a 9 year old!

Although Quill is mostly deaf, that doesn’t stop him he’s still follows the other dogs in and out of the kennel with no problem. He doesn’t like to be outside too much and is really enjoying his comfy duvet bed so much so that he rarely gets out of bed in the morning. Quill would love a home of his own to live out his golden years

I believe that Potter is in a foster home ( in Ireland ) with a cat and other dogs. Potter is a young boy, and would need a home where he would get plenty of exercise. Another dog for company would be a bonus!


Handsome, isn’t he ?

James is a greyhound X who has been waiting for his forever home for the last 5 months. He was originally spotted in July running along a 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.

Ariel  – ( reserved )

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.

If you would like to adopt Ariel then please get in touch:

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 ( see his video on our Facebook page )

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, 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.
