At any one time we have a number of greyhounds and lurchers in kennels that are looking for a loving home, many will not appear on our website. This is ‘a dog for you’….a dog that will be matched to you according to the information you provide on the bottom of this profile. Registering your interest here gives you a great opportunity to be considered for a dog that suits your circumstances that might not be visible anywhere else.
‘A dog for you’ will be a greyhound or lurcher currently in our care who is looking for a loving home.
‘A dog for you’ can suit a range of people with sighthound experience from the novice to the experienced home (experienced homes always very welcome!)
‘A dog for you’ can fit a wide range of living arrangements, but especially popular are rural or semi-rural locations.
‘A dog for you’ will suit your family situation. Whilst some of our dogs can live with children and/or other dogs, many struggle to live with children under 10, or small breed dogs (the latter mainly relating to ex racing greyhounds)
‘A dog for you’ is unlikely to be able to live with cats.
‘A dog for you’ should be not be expected to have lived in a home before (although some of our dogs may have done)
‘A dog for you’ MAY never be allowed to be let off the lead in a public place due to the natural instinct of the breed.
‘A dog for you’ will need to meet you at our kennel location in Somerset, although we occasionally have other dogs which will be homed direct from their current home which could be based in Devon, Dorset, Somerset or Bristol. This may be just the once, or multiple times (depending on the dog).
If you apply for ‘a dog for you’, we will review your application and contact you to talk through your situation and requirements. If you have a suitable home for one of our lovely hounds, we will look out for your future canine companion and be in touch when we match one to you.
Please note, if you have a particular request for a ‘type’ of dog, or fall into some of the categories above that may present a challenge in finding you a suitable dog, we will still happily accept your application as we do get dogs to suit all circumstances. However, it must be accepted that there is a much longer waiting list for these types of dogs. Also in very high demand are small sized, or long coated lurchers.
