PLEASE GIVE JAYJAY A HOME. JayJay is a big, handsome, black greyhound who has been with us for nearly two years now waiting for his forever home. He is very well mannered on the lead and has excellent recall when in our enclosed area. JayJay loves to play with his tennis balls and is very good at playing fetch.  

He is good with big dogs and older children however would not be suitable to rehome with cats or small dogs. He is generally clean in his kennel and loves his treats so would not take long to train. Ideally JayJay needs to go to a home that will give him the time to adjust to a home environment as he has been in kennels for such a long time. He has been rehomed previously although has been returned through no fault of his own.

JayJay loves attention and will happily lounge in bed having cuddles for hours if you let him. We would love for JayJay to find his perfect, forever home with a family that will give him all the love and attention he deserves.   If you may be able to give Jayjay a home, please ring Judy at the Stray Dogs Sanctuary on 01202 696685 or e-mail info@straydogs

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.
