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 Mac, this very happy go lucky boy was saved from a pound in Ireland. His time was up and NGR stepped in to save him. Now this is your chance to save him again, and offer him a forever home and the love he craves. He is playful boy, who is not very big at only 25′ tts.  Mac is approx 18months old. We feel that he would suit a family with children over the age of 7/8 years old. 

He will play ball all day long if you have the time, and would suit a more energetic out going family. Mac, is the kind of dog, who given the chance will be a clever devoted dog. A dog you would be able to take anywhere. He is house clean, and such a friendly boy. Good on the lead, loves the car too !   what more could you ask for.?

A wonderful family dog for long beach walks. Please give this handsome brindle boy a chance. He really doe deserve it !   Mac has not been cat tested, bit it is unlikely he can live with cats.





Another lad, who has become excess to requirements, an ex-racer lad named Mikie. Aged at only four years old this stunning black and white greyhound is looking for a sofa to call his own.  He is quite a looker !   Mikie is a very sweet boy, who is uncle to Sue, who NGR homes last summer. He loves ear and neck rubs, and is very good with other dogs, big and small.   A confident boy, who would be great as an only dog, but would love a houndie companion.



Sam ( Jeff’s Sam )


A delightful, loving boy …….. meet sam, average size at 28′ tts. Sam is currently in Ireland and is looking for his forever home. Sam’s D.O.B is 18.09.14 and his sister to Sarah ( available and for a home too ) Another black boy, waiting for love and affection.   Sam has never known life outside kennels, so he may a little time to adjust to all the new and strange things in his world.

This boy, could really melt your heart, given the chance.

Gina, can be a little wary of people to begin with and is unsure until she gets to know you. She may let out the odd bark is she is unsure. Which is unusual for a greyhound.    Gina would be best suited to a home with another hound, she needs that little bit of confidence that only another dog can give her. Currently in Ireland.   Gina is not cat friendly.

This is the face of an unloved and cruel life. Meet Sandy: this beautiful lurcher girl was due to be put to sleep today. Yes, her 7 days in the pound had expired.
Today was Sandy’s lucky day. Paws in Ireland saved her. Sandy is now in their care. NGR have offered to find this poor girl a new and forever home in the UK.
This fur baby is scared, and has recently given birth, it would probably have been one of many litters in her lifetime.
Now that Sandy is not longer any good for breeding, she has been thrown away. Unloved, unwanted, and homeless.
NGR will find her a new home, where she will be loved and cared for.
Could you love Sandy ? Could you find it in your heart to give her a happy place for the rest of her days?
Approx 9 years old.

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.

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:



This little stunner is Minnie. Currently in a foster home in Norwich. A beautiful lady coming up for 4yo.
Minnie would be best suited to a home as an only dog and someone at home full time. Or with another dog as a companion to keep her company.
Minnie has the most beautiful white and blue speckled coat.

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.
NGR has just homed her pup Marty. Looking for an easy life, a comfy sofa and total tummy rubs. We want to get this girl a forever home.



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.

Arwen – Lurcher Female 5/6yrs, 62cm.
Everyone meet the gorgeous petite Arwen. Arwen was found straying a couple of months back with 2 other lurchers. She had very bad mange when she arrived. Thankfully with treatment it’s all cleared and she is now looking for her forever home. She is very good with dogs of all sizes, both male and female. She has a very gentle nature, she is a calm girl who walks very well on the lead. She is a small sized girl. She would be good as an only dog, or company for another dog.



Trevor ( on home trial )

Form an orderly queue, everyone – meet the stunning boy Trevor. Trevor is 14 months old and never raced. He had a collision with his sister a few months ago breaking his tail and injuring some muscles meaning he’d never race. He’s a shy boy, very gentle. Once he’s settled with us I’ll put up his proper profile. He’s potentially cat trainable as Trevor never raced.
What a handsome boy!




Queenie  ( reserved )

This stunner is Queenie. She is the most beautiful greyhound you ever did see.
A stunning biscuit colour coat, she’s a girlie who was homed by NGR last year. Sadly, due to a huge change in her dads work commitments (please no negative comments) he can not keep Queenie.
She is not cat friendly, but loves other dogs, large and small.
She has been clean in the house since the day she arrived. She loves her long walks and travels well in the car.

We would love to get this gentle girl a new home, and one that she will allow her time to settle in, and adjust to the changes she will face in moving homes.  Queenie would be better suited to a home with older children, as, being a bigger girl, she might easily knock small children over.




Sam ( Reserved )

Meet the stunning, exceedingly gentle boy Sam. Fabulous with and loves children.
He is house clean, and is a gentle boy, who loves his walks. He is such a good boy on the lead. He is fine with other dogs.
Not a tall boy, but a solid lad. As you can see he has tha most loveable eyes. So very soulful.  He has been in a foster home since arriving in the U.K. 3 weeks ago.
He is now looking for his turn at a forever home.  Sam is two years old. He is not cat friendly.



Molly (brindle)

Molly is a beautiful 2 and a half year old greyhound looking for her loving forever home. She is a small stunning brindle girl with lovely bright eyes. She is a gentle loving greyhound who loves lots of attention and loves to play she will make a fantastic little pet.

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  ( on home trial )

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:




Everyone meet Eve. Born 04/07/2014. Stands at 67cms and weighs about 27kgs. She is an ex coursing hound. She is a very kind, gentle girl. She has been brought up around children. She has been brought up in a home and in kennels. She loves to play fetch and is great on the lead. She is good with other dogs but needs to be fed separately as she doesn’t like to share her food with other dogs (we feed all dogs separately anyway):




Meet the beautiful Carrie. Carrie has not had the best life and she has a large scar on the top of her head from a previous injury which affects her ear. When putting a collar on her yesterday she was very nervous and did everything she could to get away.

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 but will need basic training and lots of interaction with other breeds of dog and humans.

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:




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:




Maggie was born on 3rd Feb 2014, she weighs 28kg, she is of an average height for a female Greyhound.

She’s very good with other dogs has shared her kennel with lots of dogs. She sits and gives the paw when asked.
She is very sweet and calm natured but of course she does have her moments of silliness! Buffy came to Paws Rescue in Ireland in November 2015 with a group of 16 dogs from the travellers – she is the last of them still waiting to find her forever home.
Buffy cannot live with cats.  She can be a little dominant when she first meets new dogs but it’s mostly all noise and she settles down quickly enough once everyone calms down again.
Approx 2 – 3years old.
