DOG OF THE WEEK - Pixie is a beautiful 5 year old whippet cross who lived with whippet Yarris and came into rescue with him. Yarris has now found a home and Pixie would love to find one too. Pixie has always lived with other dogs and needs a new home where there is already one or more dogs. She LOVES to run but also likes lots of cuddles. Pixie is typical sight hound who needs a very loving home. She is good with other dogs but not keen on cats. Photo and full details on the "adopt a dog" page.

URGENT APPEAL FROM KERRY GREHOUNDS 
We have just rescued 10 dogs from Ireland which means that at the moment we have 15 dogs in kennels. That costs us £150 a day. I don't even want to write down how much a month that is and we will be struggling to find the funds for more that a couple of months. Some of these dogs are 8 and 9 year olds and they really need to be in a home environment now that the weather has turned colder. So our biggest need right now is foster spaces. It doesn't have to be forever, just for a month or two until your foster dog finds their new family. We will pay all the expenses and provide everything your foster dog needs. You really could save a life. If you can't foster, maybe you have family or friends that might be able to? Please consider our plea seriously, and share it with everyone you can.
Please think very hard, and share our plea with everyone you can. Fostering is a commitment and you need patience and understanding, but the rewards are beyond imagining. People worry that they will become too attached to their foster dog and be upset when it leaves - but the alternative is for dogs to die. Surely that is more upsetting?
We don't have many requirements - as long as you live in the Norfolk, Suffolk or South Lincs area, don't have any children under 8 and the dog won't be left for more than about 4 hours at a time you could join our supportive fostering family. Please, please think about it. Wouldn't it be wonderful to share a first Christmas with a dog who's never even known the comforts of home?
If you want to talk to us and find out more, please call me on 075 000 62648 or email me on bronwen@kerrygreyhounds.co.uk.
You won't regret it. Many thanks. Bronwen
