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.
Our adoption fee is a minimum of £150.00 – each home is checked – all dogs are neutered unless they are too young.
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.
A beautiful Rocky, a stunning brindle boy. Looking for a new home in the UK…… he is currently with HUG rescue in Ireland. But, will be neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and ready to travel once a home offer comes in for him.
Born in March 2016, he isn’t the smallest of greyhounds at 44kg. But, don’t let that put you off. The big ones are the most softest & gentle ! Rocky has been around children. He has only ever met greyhounds, so introductions to other breeds must be done carefully.
