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, and 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.
Ship is a quiet, intelligent dog, born 2014. He sprained his wrist during racing 18 months ago, but this doesn’t affect his retirement at all. He is good with other greyhounds, but has yet to be introduced to smaller dogs.
Ship is a calm boy who loves getting ear rubs, and has already mastered the art of the sofa steal! If you would like to foster or adopt Ship then please get in touch by either contacting us on the NGR Page or completing our adoption form.
Sox is a petite brindle and white greyhound looking for her forever home. She is approximately 23 inches to the shoulder and is really sweet. She gets on with all other greyhounds and is yet to be tested with smaller breeds and cats.
Sox is 16 months old. She loves to play and is super affectionate…. Sox can be a little shy to start with but she is soon in for a cuddle when she realises you have the time to do so.

Another stunning flecked lurcher girl available through NGR.
A beautiful dappled coat, this pretty girl is approx 1 year old., and still very much a puppy.
Her name is Princess B ( Bella ) she is a friendly girl, who gets on well with other dogs, small and big.
B seems to like children and gets on well with them. She loves cuddles and attention.
Picked up as a stray, so not much of this girls previous history is known. She is very food orientated, and any food left out is fair game !
She would need a secure garden, and plenty of toys and stimulation. A home with another lurcher dog would be fab!

As you can see, this pretty girl would make a terrific companion., she deserves a chance at such a young age.
Not a big girl, walks well on the lead. A true stunner !

Harry ( reserved )
This stunning lad is Harry. ( age 3 yo approx )
I am still little nervous, as I think I’m going to be hit when people come to pet me. I do love humans, but at the same time they scare me too.
The kennel ladies are helping me overcome my fear., given time and some big time TLC, I will learn to trust people.
I am only a small boy at 23″ and i weight 18kg. I won’t take up much room.
I would love to find a quite home with a mum and dad that will give me time to adjust, to find my feet and help me to love my new found life. My life hasn’t been a happy one so far, and Im praying my new family will love me to bits.
This week, I’m going to the vets to get my teeth cleaned and to have my dangly bits off !
I would love to come with my passport to the UK……could you love me. Im very good with other animals as you can see, I get on with the kennel ratter cats !
Lola is 8 years old and is a really placid and well behaved dog!
Information from her current owner……………She is house trained and never messes I’m the house. She has been known to not go to the toilet for long periods of time as she refuses to go out in the rain 🙈
She is excellent of the lead through the day, I normally never have her on a lead. She does not roam far, she comes back when shouted and will wait at a road when asked. Lola likes to play with other dogs whilst out in the community. However, I am not sure what she would be like if there was another dog in her territory.
Lola loves the warm and will lay as close to a fire or radiator as she can get.
Lola really hates loud fireworks and I normally buy tablets to ease her anxiety around this time. Lola loves walking on leads and will walk for miles and miles. However walking in the dark scares her a little bit so I don’t let her off her lead on a night. Lola is not a fan of being in a car, she will cry until she gets out of the car. She does however sit still and does not jump around the car.
She is on paper the perfect dog, however due to my circumstance living by myself and working long hours it is unfair to her being by herself. It has took me a long time to make this decision to rehome Lola as she has been a big part of my life. But i need to think of Lola and her quality of life rather than my own feelings.

SJ – Cat friendly !!
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.
Kerry is a beautiful girl both inside and out. She is a sensitive soul who can get a bit of a fright from unexpected noises. Considering the big change in environment she has adapted well to city life but her heart belongs in the country with less heavy traffic and more hound safe places to explore. She loves the beach and the forest but isn’t so keen on the busy town streets
Kerry is great on the lead and loves car rides. She has shown no signs of aggression but off leash dogs can scare her a little, so on occasion wears a muzzle if likely to encounter a lot of them, she wears it happily.
She is very quiet, in three weeks I haven’t heard any sound from her and she sleeps all night through. She is exceptionally well house trained. She loves her walks, short or long and then snuggles in to the sofa for a nap.
I think Kerry’s dream home would be in a rural location with a hound proof garden to play in. Ideally she needs another hound friend and an experienced hound owner would be a plus.
Kerry needs a patient, gentle owner who has the time to bring her out of her shell. Although she is good with children of all ages, given her sensitive nature I feel older children or no children would be better for her. She is nervous around men so if there is a man in the family he needs to understand it will take even more time for her to bond with him.
Cara ( RESERVED )
New girl on the block coming for January…….meet Cara ( Irish for friend ) a stunning young fawn greyhound.
D.o.b 11.03.15 s you can see, Cara has been around children.

If you would love this stunning girl in your home then please get in touch
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 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.

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

Ariel – coming to the UK soon – Already in foster!
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:
“Ariel is doing great, she’s a very bright little girl who managed to get herself onto the sofa the first night she arrived. She goes up and down the stairs without a bother, follows me everywhere during the day to see what’s going on and absolutely loves her grub. Out walking she seems very placid, very light on the lead and show no interest in other dogs or people, and she can run better than she walks. Ariel is very affectionate, she waits patiently in the morning when she hears me get up and always has a wagging tail to greet the family. Ariel gets on well with my whippet and greyhound, and is an easy going dog that loves to be fussed over. Though she’s self contained and confident Ariel does love company and she would be happier with someone at home most of the day and if not, then another dog for company. She settled in here the day we collected her and is so low maintenance, house trained from the beginning and looks to go out to the toilet several times a day. Ariel is not bothered by loud noises/hoover/childrens’ voices or other dogs, and she loves to lie for hours with her shoulders and head on cushions. She will be a terrific companion for someone who wants a faithful hound to smother with love and be adored in return.”
If you would like to adopt Ariel then please get in touch by either contacting us on the HUG Page or completing our adoption questionnaire

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.

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.
It’s nearly hard to believe that this is even the same dog. Possum is doing soooo well. Her rough coat is starting to grow after she was taken from travellers in a terrible state. As you can see from the photo this poor girl at the tender age of only one year old, has already had a awful life. Flea and mange riddled, this poor girl was nothing more than garbage, to be thrown away. But., PAWS in Ireland came to the rescue and saved this girl.
Such a stunning little girl, the before and after pictures say everything.😍😍.
Great with other dogs, typical playful, happy lurcher girl, looking for her forever home !
