If you adopt Bonnie & Clyde (or any of our dogs), you will be entitled to receive FREE behavioural support from our qualified team of behaviourists for any issues you might need help with during their lifetime. Further information will be given when homing Bonnie & Clyde. Please note, this support is only available for dogs adopted from Forever Hounds Trust.
Bonnie & Clyde are an inseparable duo of 7 year old greyhounds, who are looking for a new home through no fault of their own. A change in circumstances means that their current family have had to make the heart-breaking decision to rehome the pair, with Bonnie & Clyde’s best interests in mind.
Having lived with their loving family for several years, these two are very used to home life and comforts. They’re both house trained, laid back and easy going at home (spending most of their time fast asleep!) and are comfortable with spending reasonable periods of time alone. They currently enjoy sharing their home with children, and could do so again. Bonnie & Clyde are very affectionate, friendly dogs with people and are very welcoming to visiting adults and children.
Bonnie & Clyde have always been together and need to be homed as a pair. Although they’re devoted to each other, they’re not overly keen on spending time with other dogs! Large breeds tend to be ignored on walks, but Bonnie is not comfortable around smaller dogs in particular – she can be somewhat reactive when passing them in close proximity, or if they approach her off-lead. Clyde is less worried but will tend to back Bonnie up! The pair are not difficult to manage on walks, but do need to stay on-lead and muzzled at all times, and will not enjoy walking in areas with a lot of other dogs (especially off-lead dogs). Although they walk beautifully on-lead most of the time, they are large dogs and their adopter must be physically able to hold both dogs together if they do get upset by another dog – a home where two people could walk them together would be ideal!
Clyde is not a fan of car travel, so a home where he will not have to do regular or long journeys would suit him best. The pair will be staying with their current family in Devon whilst we search for their new home. Due to Clyde’s worries around car travel, a fairly local home would be perfect – however we wouldn’t rule out homes further afield, as long as adopters are prepared to support Clyde on the journey back.
Although they must stay on-lead and muzzled in public, the pair enjoy visiting a local secure field for hire. They love to play with toys, especially anything soft and furry! Clyde does have an old injury which means he isn’t meant to do too much zooming, and they’re both happy with two 30 minute-1 hour walks per day. Bonnie & Clyde are used to being allowed on the sofa, and this is their favourite place to be. It would be unfair to take this comfort away from them now, so sofa access is non-negotiable in their new home!
Bonnie & Clyde really are a delightful pair of dogs, and unlike most of our ex-racers have already been through the adjustment from working life to life as a family pet. If you have a couple of empty spaces on your sofa, why not ask about Bonnie & Clyde?
