Greyhound & Lurcher



Handsome saluki cross Roo is a middle-aged gentleman – well mannered, gentle and lovely to spend time with. It’s fair to say, he’s a firm favourite amongst the volunteers at kennels! He can be a little worried in unfamiliar situations, and craves the company of his humans, so would be best suited to a calm, quiet home, with a family who are around most of the time so he’s not alone. He enjoys learning, and with lots of love and support, Roo will return your love ten-fold and it won’t be long before he’s cuddling up on the sofa, enjoying lots of neck scratches – his very favourite thing!

This gorgeous boy has sadly been in a kennel environment for a while, and truly deserves a lovely home of his own. If you’re finding it hard to resist his adorable face, and have got time, love and home comforts that you can dedicate to this gorgeous boy, please get in touch – you won’t regret it!

If you may be able to give Roo a home, please e-mail or ring 3000 125 125 Monday to Friday, between 9am and 4pm.   Photo at


Greyhounds Herbie and Amber are 6 years old and due to a change in circumstances they need a foster home together for the next 6 months. They are well behaved dogs and will come fully equipped plus food for the 6 months and vets bills will be taken care off.  For more information ring Julie at Essex Greyhound Rescue on 0796 7327544 or e-mail  Photo at
