We URGENTLY need to find a *permanant foster* home for an 8 year old Greyhound bitch. Beauty came into our care 6 years ago heavily pregnant and whelped whilst with us. After rearing her pups she left to live with Nicky one of our volunteers with us assisting her care and medication costs. Sadly in the last 12 months one of Nicky's other female dogs has taken exception to Beauty and has now attacked her on numerous occassions. After long discussions we felt it was easier to rehome Beauty as she is easier than the other female she is sharing a home with. Beauty is a typical minxy black greyhound girl BUT is fine with smaller dogs and lives with two terriers she is also living with parrots and is safe with them but NOT cats. Beauty is on permanant vetmedin after she was diagnosed with quite a serious heart condition when she first landed that should have seen her off the planet but hasnt and you do not even know she has it. She also had slight incontenance issues BUT this is totally under control with medication and again you would not know she has it. ALL continued medication will be cost covered for life by Greyhound Gap. Beauty is good with children, is fabulous off lead, travels well and is an all round nice dog. She is happy to be left out of the crate when you leave her but if you leave her for a long time may have the odd accident but is clean when crated. In the interim Beauty is coming to me on Saturday after the last attack left her with neck injuries (now healed) and she is such a nice girl that if I thought my house was the right place for her to be permanantly she would not leave but I know it isnt. Just to say also that any of the upset and fights have not been caused by Beauty and the attacks have been totally unprovoked on the other dogs part. Beauty is currently in the Wolverhampton area. If anyone can help please let me know. I know so many people would love another greyhound but are worried about veterinary costs and with Beauty that worry is not there.
