Greyhound & Lurcher




GYPSY is a beautiful whippet cross, who has come into the rescue kennels because his owner has had to move to accommodation where no dogs are allowed. Gypsy is gentle and affectionate, but is strong on the lead, so he would not be suitable for an elderly owner.  If you may be able to give Gypsy a home, please ring Sandy at Dogs In Need on 1276 858720 or 07778 159115.  The rescue is in south east England.  Photo at




Our website is dedicated to helping to find good homes for abandoned, abused or neglected greyhound and lurchers.

We have a list of rescues that help these loving, gentle dogs. If you are thinking of giving one of these dogs a second chance by adopting a greyhound or lurcher, please contact one of the rescues on the list.

We have a frequently asked questions page, but if you have a question about greyhounds and lurchers that is not on the page, please contact us.
