Molly is an elderly greyhound who is in desperate need of either a permanent home or foster home, so she is able to spend her twilight years in the comfort of a warm, loving environment.
At eleven and a half years old, she is currently living in GRW kennels as her owners have emigrated and sadly were unable to take her with them.
Molly is a lovely girl with a very sweet nature. She is a little doddery on her back legs due to a touch of arthritis, which is only to be expected due to her age, but she manages to get around okay, and is still quite capable of jumping in and out of the back of a car when she needs to.
Molly will only be able to go on short walks throughout the day as her galloping days on the beach are unfortunately in the past, due to her stiffness.
Molly is also slightly deaf, again due to her old age but this doesn’t appear to hinder her in any way.
GRW are very concerned that because Molly has spent the last 6 years in a home with her previous owner, a kennel environment is not something we would wish for her, especially now that winter is on its way as she could suffer some discomfort due to the cold weather and her arthritis.
Is there anybody out there that would consider giving Molly a better life in her twilight years?
If you can help, please phone Jo Clarke on 01873 831849 or email email@example.com .
I'm currently wanting to foster - I need a homecheck first. Ideally I was looking for a girl as I have 2 male lurchers. If nobody else wants to foster Molly or ideally give her a home, I'd be available for fostering her, if somebody thinks I'm suitable!

Looks like Molly might have some interest in terms of a permanent home - fingers crossed - but they won't know until after the weekend. I've given them my details and they'll let me know if she's still in need of fostering or not after that.

peggy: Also a brand new greyhound owner, I love her already. It's hard to believe she is 4 years old, I have to keep reminding myself she was in a kennel and not a home. She is a beaut, but goes skits around food, I suppose it was the excieting time of day x

kiri07: I have been concerned with my 7 year old greyhound losing hair on her thighs, but it looks like it is a normal thing. She's losing a little in a few other places too. I saw someone say something about vetzyme condition tablets? I also heard organic oat

steeveet: Hi there, just had our home inspection by a lovely lady with her Greyhound Arthur, who I could have happily snaffled as he was sweet and at home with our girl Belle. Does anyone here know how we now get to meet any of the dogs who need a home?

greylover68: Can I shout out advice re fireworks! Rock Rose which is a Bach’s Flower Remedy works fantastically! My great big big is petrified but a few drops of Rock Rose and he’s calm within minutes. It is for fear so would help with other things too.
