Nancy – 11 year old female Greyhound

Nancy (previously known as Nadia) is a lovely girl who has been returned through absolutely no fault of her own. She is stunning looking, 11 years young and 27″ to the shoulder and a beautiful unusual colour for a Greyhound which is described as a ‘Dune Brindle’. She came to us in a poorly state with a terrible tooth breakage which had been left untreated and got badly infected and she was very thin, shut down and clearly giving up on the life she had only ever known. She was then adopted and returned so has sadly been through the mill a bit. Although she is a patient girl Nancy is crossing her little paws in the hope that she will find her forever family any time now!

Nancy is a loving and affectionate girl who is sociable with both people and other dogs. Sadly she had a pretty miserable life until she came to us at Kerry Greyhounds but has blossomed a little more every day since! She is calm and will happily let you touch her food bowl when she is eating with no issues at all. Nancy makes her foster Mum smile all the time, for example her stubbornness to come in from the garden when she’s sniffing something interesting and how she ‘expertly’ rolls her blanket into a little ball and then proceeds to lie on it with a content sigh and roach the evening away!

Nancy is very clean in the home and will ask to go out when she needs the toilet and although she loves her home comforts she actually prefers her bed to the sofa and sleeps like a baby through the night. She can also be left with canine company for a few hours with no problems whatsoever. Nancy is very good with medium to large dogs and is currently living with a greyhound and a rottweiler but hasn’t met many small dogs so care will have to be taken when meeting very small dogs on walks although she is perfectly happy wearing her muzzle. She will pull sometimes if she sees a cat or small furry so a cat free home is a must please.

Nancy is a dream on the lead and in the car and adores her walks. She will be content with two 30 minute walks a day or even more as she is a very young and sprightly girl of 9 years! In general greyhounds are calm, mannerly dogs that are well used to being handled. They can fit very well in to a wide range of different lifestyles and usually adjust to the home life very quickly. Their soft, easy going nature often makes them ideal to live in a family environment, while their love of lazing around and low exercise requirements can make them perfect for the retired. Greyhounds also don’t shed as much as other more popular dog breeds and this can make them suitable to live with allergy sufferers.

We feel Nancy would suit most home environments as she is a calm and confident girl and settles into new routines quickly but we feel she would like a fairly active family as she is young in spirit and does enjoy her walks. She also really does love the company of other dogs so ideally her forever family will have at least one other gentle canine friend. She 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 Norfolk to meet and collect her.

Please also be aware that we do not home dogs to families with children under 8 years of age. Nancy is currently living with a foster family in Norfolk. Nancy is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, deflead and wormed and a home check will be required as part of the adoption procedure.


Esme – 8 year old male Weimaraner

Esme is an 8 year old male Weimaraner. She is a lovely girl, great company and lovely to have around. Sadly her owner has moved overseas and was unable to take her along. She has lived with children, cat and other dogs. whilst with us she has also met many more dogs, several cats, a large pig, cattle and horses and met them all with friendly curiosity.

She is house trained. has an excellent recall. Travels very well in the van. Is not destructive and is not a barker. Esme is fit and active, she enjoys her walks and meeting new people and dogs. She is okay to leave for reasonable periods, but would be happiest not left home alone all day.

She is looking for her very own forever home, she is at the Sanctuary near Kidwelly. Potential adopters will need to be able to travel to the Sanctuary to meet / collect her, once they have completed the questionnaire, and a home check had been completed.


Lightning – 6 year old male Basset Hound

What an adorable chap Lightning is! He will be 6 years old at the end of April 2015, is super-friendly and loving and has a really lovely, soft temperament. He has come from a home where he has been much loved and well looked after and we want to get him back into one asap. He is a happy-go-lucky boy and loves a game and cuddle, followed by another cuddle and a bit of a sniff about of course (he is a hound after all!). We had a great time in the enclosure with him and he is lots of fun!

Lightning will need human company for a lot of the day please, every day. He will want, and need, a couple of good walks a day please in the countryside or at the beach and will enjoy playing in the garden with you, which will need to be securely enclosed for a dog please. He is housetrained of course and knows basic commands, bless him. He walks well on the lead.

He has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He can be rehomed outside of the county (Norfolk), within reason, and subject to a successful homecheck. He gets on well with other dogs and could live with one, he has experience of children and could live with children aged 7+ and he is even good with cats! He’s a good all round boy!

Lightning is of course a rare find in rescue kennels and we hope he will be very popular with Basset-lovers. He really is lovely, it’s as simple as that!

Stanley – 6 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Stanley is a 6 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Stanley is a very sweet small stocky Staffordshire Bull Terrier with bags of energy and plenty of love to give his new family. Stanley was found as a stray and has come to us via the dog pound. He has settled in well and loves all the staff especially is he gets a back scratch. Stanley is strong on the lead but soon settles. He loves to go swimming and will often try and jump in our duck pound.


Tina – 9 year old female Collie Cross

Tina is a 9 year old female Collie Cross. Tina is a beautiful lady who has so much love to give her new family. She is very good round other dogs and is currently sharing a kennel with Bell. Tina walks well on lead and enjoys playing off lead with a large group of dogs or walking with her friends. Tina is fully house trained and very well behaved. We feel she would be fine around children and would make a fantastic first girl for a first time dog owner. She is currently a little over weight so needs an owner that will limit her treats and give her the correct amount of exercise.
