Lexie and Red – 4 year old female Greyhound and 2-3 year old male Lurcher

If Kerry Greyhounds were a dating site we would have found the perfect match in Red and Lexie! Lexie is a fawn Greyhound girl who is nearly 4 years old and approx 27 ” to the shoulder. She sadly came from the illegal ‘flapping’ tracks and poor Red who is only 2-3 years of age is a fawn lurcher, probably Greyhound/Saluki/Whippet cross and just 24″ to the shoulder. He found himself in a PTS pound situation after being used for illegal coursing, he was then homed, but sadly, has been returned to us as he did not like being in a large pack environment. It was love at first sight for these two stunning hounds and they must be homed together as if Red is without Lexie he soon becomes very shut down and sad. The transformation when they are together is just amazing and a joy to watch.

Red absolutely loves Lexie, she is everything to him. He is a beautiful boy but can be fearful and shy of men but feels much more at ease with women but once in his new home he will soon learn to realise that men can be gentle and kind. Red does love his treats so we feel when he learns to relax and feels safe he will be very trainable and he also tries hard to be clean in his kennel. When he is with his girlfriend Lexie he becomes a different dog who will play and become happy and animated but without her soon he becomes a shadow of himself.

Lexie is a little blonde bombshell who is so very grateful for the life she is now living. She is bubbly, playful and friendly and loves everyone and everything! Lexie is great on the lead and in the car and keeps her kennel very clean so it should be a doddle to house train this gorgeous girl. She can jump up for cuddles, which obviously needs to be addresses but loves treats and is very bright so basic training should come quite naturally as well. She adores Red and will not be packing her suitcase without him any time soon!

Red was very good in the home and clean but sadly Lexie has never had the chance to be in a loving home environment but shows very positive signs that she will adapt quickly with a kind and patient forever family to help show her the ropes. Lexie is very friendly meeting other dogs of different sizes and shapes but has not been cat tested to date. Red can be grumbly occasionally but only due to sheer fear of some other dogs and lack of confidence so will need support and ongoing socialising to help him with this. Both Red and Lexie love their walks and are very good in the car. Lexie is great on the lead but Red can pull occasionally although he will soon settle with some patience and tasty treats! They will need at least two walks a day of about 30-40 minutes each and it’s a must to have a garden where they can play together and do zoomies.

We feel Red and Lexie would be best suited to a fairly active couple or a family with older teenagers so Red can gain confidence in a kind and gentle family environment and as already mentioned they must be homed together due to their very close bond. We also feel that a home with no other resident dogs would be best due to Red’s inability to cope with too many dogs in his home. Please be aware we do not home dogs to families with children under 8 years old but because Red is timid we would only home with older teenagers.

Both Red and Lexie are currently in a kennel in Suffolk. They can be homed anywhere in the UK provided we have a home checker available, but please note that you will be required to travel to Suffolk to meet and collect them. Red and Lexie are neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, deflead and wormed. A home check will be required as part of the adoption procedure.

Barry – 4 year old male Lurcher Cross

Barry is a 4 year old male Lurcher Cross. Barry has come to us looking for a new home as he was just to much for his owner to cope with. Barry is a big lad with lots of energy. We have been told that he is good with dogs but can get a bit silly. He is good with children but is very clumsy so older children would be better. He is very strong on the lead and will need some training to make him more manageable. With the right owners and the correct amount of training and exercise he will make a smashing dog.


Benji – 5 year old male Dachshund Cross

Misty – 5 year old male Collie Cross

Misty is a beautiful 5 year old tricolour female Collie cross. She came into our care from the inspectors as her owner could no longer afford to look after her. Misty can be a little wary when meeting new people. However it won’t take her long to come round and she has a lovely nature. She is friendly, inquisitive and alert.

Misty is a typical Collie with abundant energy. She will need to go to an active home who will have plenty of time to exercise and train her. She is very intelligent and adores playing games and will play fetch non stop. Misty is not to be rehomed with cats or other dogs. She could possibly be rehomed with older teenagers.


Zugar – 4 year old male Cross-Breed

This Handsome boy is Zugar. He is a medium size dog, about the size of a small Labrador. He is about 4 years old, neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. Zugar has spent the last two years in a very overcrowded shelter in Romania where he was given basic care, but the staff there have so many dogs to care for that each dog receives very little individual attention and they very rarely leave their pens which they share with up to 50 dogs. He is now in a foster home in Wiltshire and has adapted really quickly, is clean in the house and very friendly and loving. He always greets you with a big smile and a waggy tail. He loves his walks and gets along with other dogs. He is currently living with one other dog at the moment. He will make someone a very loyal companion.

We cannot home him with children under 10, simply because we do not know his full background, although he has been a real sweetheart with everyone he has met. He really needs his family now to make his life complete, someone who will never abandon him again.
