Hi Everyone, An update on John, the Whippet boy. We recently re-homed John... now renamed Jinn, as my husband is called John! Could you imagine shouting John and they both come running, wouldn't be too bad if I could train one of them to hoover!! Anyway, I believe our home is John's third home or fifth if you include his fosterer's. John is a lovely lad, who has fit into our life with great ease. We have two other dogs, Lucy and Missy, who are both rescue dogs, and, touch wood, they are all getting along just fine. John is enjoying his three walks a day, after which he likes to go to sleep, but.... not on the new fur lined bed we bought him .....oh no...he prefers to curl up on our bed!! This of course, is only until he wishes to play, which is normally a mad ten minutes or feeding time!! I would also like to take this opportunity to send a special thankyou to Lisa, who is such a wonderful person to be so dedicated to re-homing all the unwanted and abused dogs. Another special thankyou to Judy, who fostered Jinn until we adopted him and updated us on all his little foibles. Thanks also to all the fosterer's and home checkers who give up their time to find all the dogs that special home. Unfortunately, we don't have any photo's as we aren't that good at downloading them!! One of these days!! Regards to all, Gill & John Taylor [/img]
Hi Jill - it's great to have you on Gap and I look forward to lots of updates in little Jinn and your two lovely girls ;D He sounds very at home bless him, he thought I was a right meany as I wouldn't let him on my bed
Can't wait to see some photos of the little man in his new home, here he is in mine being a good boy and not getting on the bed
Hi Judy, With regards to sleeping on the bed....he isn't really supposed to be on there, as my other two aren't allowed. He quite good at sneaking in the bedroom when we forget to close the door, so our fault really. So, you aren't really a meanie!! ....Thanks for the photos by the way!! Regards, Gill

missfleur2003: Hello. I am new to this site and noticed that the posts for available dogs seem to be quite old. Some seem to be years old. Are the dogs shown still available.

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.
