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 5. 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.
Meet little Teddy. He is a saluki x
Approx 8/9months old. His tale is a sad one. Given to a farmer by travellers, who said they would return to collect him in two weeks time. They never came back!
For four months, this poor lived on his own in a barn, seeing the farmer very occasionally, who fed him ( not very often ) otherwise, poor Teddy had no contact with the outside world.
Last week he was rescued 💕 under nourished, full of fleas and understandably nervous.
He is now in a foster home, with several dogs and cats. He has been vaccinated and neutered.
Teddy is ready to travel from Ireland, all he needs now is a family to call his own.
This small lad will need a loving, caring family with no small children to give him the time he needs to adjust to another move and new strangers in his world.
His nature is very friendly, and being a saluki he is a bouncy boy. Teddy is still a baby at heart, he will need a mum or dad at home most of the time, a buddy would be great to give Teddy confidence. Some puppy classes would be a good idea, Salukis are clever, and like all young dogs he will need guidance and stimulating.
Mister ( reserved )
Coming to NGR this month
If your looking for a lazy, handsome and affectionate new man in your life………..look no further !
welcome this fine brindle lad into the fold. Mister was born in 2011 and is looking for his forever home. He is the sweetest lad, a little timid when he first meets you but soon moves in for ear rubs and a lean when feeling more confident!

We would love to find Mister a quiet home where someone is at home on a regular basis where he can spend his retirement curled up in front of the fire (favourite pastime) He is calm on the lead and is fairly bomb proof. Traffic and traveling does not bother him and he just loves to travel with you…even to the pub!!

Wilma is a tiny black lurcher girl of approx 3years old. She is just a bundle of joy. Wilma loves everyone and all dogs. If you want an all round, faithful little package, then look no further…….you’ve just found the girl of your dreams.
Not cat friendly., but good with other dogs. Can you help this little black girl? She’s 23″ to the shoulder.
This senior lady so deserves a forever home and comfy sofa, with all day belly and ear rubs. Meet little Ruby ( Carragh with Paws ) at 8+years old. I feel broken for this poor girl.
Her body language says it all: a forever home would be amazing. But if anyone could offer a foster space to get her out of kennels she would be eternally grateful.
Not cat friendly., but good with other dogs. Can you help this little black girl? She’s 25″ to the shoulder:
Meet Emma – at 25″ she is a dinky girl. Found with a terrible flea infestation., and an untreated injury to her back leg. Life has been a hard one, and an unkind one. Her tail had to be amputated and she has a very small, but waggy tail left.
Emma has had to learn how to trust humans, she has started to learn that not all people are bad, and that they can be kind to her.
Emma is good with other dogs, and loves her daily trot off lead and walks. This pretty brindle girl is just hoping you could love her:
Minnie ( reserved )
This little stunner is Minnie, a playful beautiful, small young lady. Currently in a foster home in Norwich, and loving every minute of home life. A beautiful lady coming up for 4yo.
Minnie is the prettiest little lurcher girl you ever did see. At only 25′ tts she is a petit girl.
Minnie is friendly, and walks lovely on the lead. We can’t understand why such a gorgus little girl is still waiting.
Minnie is fine with other dogs, but is not cat friendly. A home with children over the age of 10 would suit best for this pretty girlie.
If you would like to meet Minnie, or you’re interested in this beautiful girl, please do contact us.
Meet Penny, a small and very pretty girl. Friendly, and at only 60cm (23/24″) to the shoulder, Penny won’t take up too much room either.

Lola, a beautiful white and ginger girl.
She is a 3/4year old lurcher who is only 25″ to the shoulder. Small and very affectionate, she is shy to start with, but come out of her shell once she feels she can trust you. Another dog would be a great help with Lola’s confidence.

Another sad story…….and sadly another travellers dog., abused and beaten down soul. This amazing little baby girl is POSSOM. Her home offer in Ireland has fallen through., so we are looking for a home in the U.K. As you can see, POSSOM has not had a good or happy life.
She had mange, flea’s, malnutrition, and totally lost.
But, love and affection, and some good hear meals have made a vast improvement as you can see. Thanks to Irish charity PAWS ANIMAL RESCUE.
Approximately 11/12 months old. Currently in Ireland 🇮🇪
Davey just takes your breath clean away. STUNNING !
Davy was born 09/12/2013. He was surrendered as his racing career came to an end. Davy is one cool, laid back boy. He walks very well on the lead.
At 1st meeting he can be a bit shy but once he comes out of his shell, he is a loving, calm boy. He loves being groomed and going for walks. We think Davy would be good with younger children as he has such a calm boy.
Davy is currently kennelled with a female lurcher. He goes out walking with other dogs with no issues. He will be small dog tested later. He weighs about 32/34 kgs and stands at approx 72cms.

Wanda ( reserved )
Meet Wanda, a small lurcher girl. Currently in Ireland, but ready to travel with the SPCSA and has been in a foster home for over a year.
She was left behind by travellers after a coursing event 🙁 – as you can she she is a pretty girl, excellent with kids, and all dogs alike. Her main aim is to please and love you.
Wanda’s tail does not stop wagging. Approx 2/3 years old.
Not cat friendly. Clean in the house, and has been with up to 10 foster dogs at a time. She can counter-surf if given the chance! Wanda has been off lead, and loves a run. Her recall is good, but she does have selected hearing 😉
Lucas is a medium-sized 4 year-old lurcher who is experienced in living in a family home with children, small dogs and cats. He likes to go for a morning sprint in a safe field and then nap and eat throughout the day. He is toilet trained and can sit, stay, lie and shake a paw. He can be nervous with strangers and loud noises, so a quiet, calm home would suit him best.
Lucas is a fantastic family companion and he is quiet most of the time. He can make an excellent guard dog as he barks at the door when strangers approach and really, for some reason, dislikes the postman! His favorite spot in the house is the top of the stairs were he will keep watch on the house: that is, unless you have an open fire – then he will sleep there and become a rug.
Although he has lived with cats and small dogs in the past, he would need to be sensibly and carefully introduced to new animals in any future household. He also prefers slightly older and quiet children.
Loves his head & belly rubbed.
Enjoys cooked lambs heart and liver mixed in his food.
Enjoys pig ears as treats.
Staring out the window and barking at the postman
Enjoys chasing a ball
Sudden loud noises (or simply loud noises).
If you are interested in adopting Lucas, please complete our online adoption application:
Billy ( Reserved )
Meet the very playful, and quite frankly very handsome lurcher boy BILLY.
Approx 18months old, this little looker is a lovely friendly chap, loves his walks, loves people, but is not cat friendly.
He is a dinky size lad at only 23/4″ to the shoulder. He is currently in a foster home in Norwich. He is currently looking for his forever home:
This handsome white and black boy is looking for his forever home. Born in October 2012, Urban (Urban Bound) has been retired from racing for a while now after damaging his hock. This won’t stop him making the most of life as a family pet, and he enjoys being taken for a walk. Urban is a very gentle greyhound, he doesn’t bark at strangers, and is well behaved around children.
He has always lived in kennels, so hasn’t interacted much with other breeds of dog, and as such can be quite timid when encountering other dogs. If you would like to adopt or foster Urban then please get in touch by either contacting us on the NGR Facebook Page or completing our adoption form:

Everybody meet the absolutely stunning Mafi. Mafi was a coursing boy. He was born 28/03/2015. He stands at 75cms tall and weighs approx 30/32kgs. Mafi is a very affectionate loving boy. He adores cuddles. He has the most mesmerizing eyes!! Mafi is great on the lead. As Mafi was a coursing boy he wouldn’t suit a home with cats. I think he could learn to live with a small dog.
We think Mafi would best suit a home with another female dog for company, And someone who is experienced with greyhounds:
Mona surrendered by travellers, is a broken girl. Covered in scars. Recently had a leg amputated. She is doing great, a little withdrawn, just wants to sleep and have a quiet life. We have a foster home secured from when mona is well enough to travel to the UK. ( currently in foster in Ireland 🇮🇪)
Mona has a had an awful life, this is her chance for a happy ending. A quiet loving forever home. One that can show her, humans can be kind, gentle and loving. Mona is approx 7/8yo she is a delicate girl, who will need time to adjust, which I think she will do easily. She will certainly enjoy home comforts, good food, and a warm comfy bed. Could you love Mona and offer her a home in your house forever?
Meet Carrie, now she isn’t the prettiest greyhound on the block, yes, she has a big dint in her head. But, Carrie really does deserve a huge chance at happiness. Saved from awful conditions this once nervous girl, is a happy girl today.
Carrie has not had the best life and her old head injury does affect her ear., but, it is kind of endearing at the same time.
We would advise with Carrie that a harness is used so there is no pressure around her neck. This girl is such a sweetheart….she needs time to trust and get to know you, but once she does she holds a beautiful smile and a very waggy tail. She loves people, and HUG in Ireland are working hard to introduce Carrie to the real world, as she has never seen much of it until a few months ago.
Carrie is a tiny dot and is about 23 inches to the shoulder, she has a lovely thick black coat. If you would like to give Carrie a loving home then please get in touch:
Fred ( Reserved )
Every so often a hound touches your heart…..well old boy Fred here has certainly pulled. I am counting on my friends to share Fred in the hope that his home is waiting out there somewhere. Fred is nearly 9 years old and is a lurcher. He lives with 2 other greyhounds at the moment but they will be leaving soon for their forever homes and Fred will be left again…..
This boy deserves to be in front of a fire with his legs in the air, relaxing, not pacing in a kennel…. If you would like a bit of “Right said Fred” then please contact NGR … Fred will be waiting:
