Greyhound & Lurcher


Dog of the week - Jayjay

Jayjay has been in the rescue kennels for over 18 months and has seen all his fellow greyhounds who came in with him go to new homes, but sadly no-one seems to want him. Jayjay is a handsome black greyhound who has a very gentle nature. He loves people and likes playing fetch with a ball, and always brings the ball back. He is good with other greyhounds, but can be wary of small dogs, so will need careful introduction to them. Jayjay would love to find a home with an experienced greyhound owner who already has a female greyhound or lurcher, or he could be an only dog, as long as he is not left on his own for more than 4 hours a day. PLEASE think about giving this beautiful boy the home he needs so much. Jayjay is in the kennels in Dorset.

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.
