Hi, it's foster hound Jack! 🐾 We had some visitors recently and it was all very exhausting! So after they left a very deep sleep was needed! In fact, I love snoozing on the sofa, and spend quite lot of time doing it! Although, I have to say it's getting a bit more interesting going out for sniffs again - the neighbours have been doing more stuff outside now the weather is getting milder, so nose in the air, I don't care! (I had to check out what they were doing!). One thing I haven't quite got the hang of is telling the time, check out the picture of me asking for food, little did I know it was two hours early! When my tummy tells me it needs food...I tell my foster peeps! I have been working on something new recently, being left home alone. As much as I

A huge THANK YOU to Pets Foundation for their amazing £10,000 grant towards our veterinary costs!
With their help, we have provided crucial veterinary care for 26 newly arrived greyhounds and lurchers over the last 6 months, as well as those already in our care.
This has meant we could make sure all our hounds were safe and well, preparing them for a happy future with loving families. ❤️
✨ Happy Emotional Health Day! ✨ Today, let's take a moment to celebrate the incredible impact our furry friends can have on our emotional well-being. 🐾❤️ Did you know that pets (especially greyhounds and lurchers!), can be fantastic companions for boosting our mental health? 🐾 Unconditional Love: One of the most beautiful aspects of having a greyhound or lurcher is their ability to provide unconditional love. Their loyalty and affectionate nature create a bond that can bring immense joy and comfort. 🏞️ Outdoor Adventures: Taking them for walks not only benefits their physical health but also gets you moving. Regular exercise is a proven mood booster, reducing stress and anxiety. 🧘♀️ Calm Companionship: These gentle souls have a calming presence. Spending time with your greyhound or lurcher can help reduce feelings of loneliness and provide a sense of purpose, promoting emotional stability. 🎉 Social Connections: Walking your greyhound or lurcher
🐾 Happy National Dog Biscuit Day! 🐾
On this pawsome occasion, let's treat our four-legged companions to some extra love with homemade biscuits! ❤️ Baking your own doggy treats not only adds a personal touch but also ensures you know exactly what goes into them. Hence, it can be a healthier alternative to store-bought options!
There are lots of dog biscuit recipes on the internet, just Google 'dog biscuit recipes', and you will be presented with a wealth of options! 🤩 Happy baking!
🚨 IMPORTANT REMINDER: If you choose a recipe with peanut butter, make sure it does not contain xylitol (birch sugar), a sweetener that can be harmful to dogs. Always double-check the ingredients.

Hi, it's foster hound Jack 🐾 As an ex racing greyhound I have never had to deal with those funny things called stairs! So, my foster peeps have been helping me to learn all about them in case I encounter them in my new home. I found it all a little but baffling to start with, and stretched up as far as I could without moving my back legs, but that just didn't seem to work! Anyway, Whisper helped me by showing how it was done...and a few treats helped too! I've been up and down several times now, the lure of the BIG comfy bed I've discovered at the top means I even ask to go up! I have also been to the vets for my booster and healthcheck. Despite it all being rather unnerving, I was a very good boy in the waiting area. I stood very still
We have a feeling homeless hound Coco may be kept occupied in her kennel for a while! 😁
Coco is enjoying life back at our Devon Centre, but would rather have a forever family to share the rest of her life with! 🙏 foreverhoundstrust.org/dog/coco/
