Greyhound & Lurcher
Rescue

Whippet

DOG OF THE WEEK - PORTER is the most laid back greyhound you will ever meet. He is a very handsome dog who loves a bit of attention. He is extremely clean in his kennel and is a gentleman to walk on lead. He is good off lead in our enclosed area, although his recall may need a bit more practice. He would happily lounge around with his humans all day, and we’re sure would be partial to a sofa or a bed. Porter is good with big dogs and is very calm when meeting them. He is not suitable to live with small dogs or cats. Porter is a very gentle boy and would definitely suit an older person/couple who is able to give him all the attention he deserves. UPDATE 31 January 2019. Porter has been in the rescue kennels for a whole year now.  We can't understand why there has been no interest in him from anyone. Please think about giving Porter a home.  Photo at https://www.greyhoundandlurcherrescue.co.uk/adopt-a-dog/4680/porter

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.
