Greyhound and Lurcher Welfare Rescue

Dogs in Need of Homes

All home offers are home checked, and you will have a chance to ask questions and discuss your prospective dog.

If you are unable to continue to home a GLWR dog for any reason, the dog must be returned to us. No dog can be sold, given away or exchanged in any way without our permission.

GLWR dogs must not be used for racing or hunting.

Upon adoption of a dog, we ask for a minimum donation of £150 to go towards the costs of the care and veterinary treatment of the dog whilst in our kennels. We will also supply a muzzle free of charge.

If you are interested in offering any of these dogs a loving home please ring 01249783775 (after 7.00pm) or email us at


Please note - none of our dogs can be rehomed with cats but check out the private re-homings further down the page.

Penny is a 5 - 6 year old Black / White bitch who has finished her racing career.  A friendly loving dog who walks well on a lead.

More to follow as we get to know her




Our latest addition in kennels is Pearl.  A 4 1/2 year old bitch who has just finished her racing career.


She has always lived with another dog and walks well on a lead. She is showing that she has quite a personality.









Dash is a 5 Year old handsom blue greyhound now looking for a forever home.

Good with other greyhounds and a pleasure to walk.


He is friendly and affectionate and will make a very loyal pet.


Not with cats please



Can you imagine a dog called "Spaghetti".  Well this is what our beautiful girl was called until we changed it to "Sophia".  

This name suits this quiet, placid, gentle dog.  Nothing seems to faze her.  She really is a lovely calm greyhound who has finished her racing and now seeks a loving home.



At 4 1/2 years old her hobbies are:- Sleeping, Resting, Short Walks and then followed by lounging in her bed, after food.


This dog would suit almost anyone and she does appear to be ok around small dogs. 




2014 brings our new recruit to kennels, a black happy chappy 3 year old greyhound originally called shipshape.  But we call him "Bosun"



This boy is very friendly and loves everyone, tail wagging constantly.  He loves his food and enjoys his countryside walks with the other dogs.  


He probably will suit almost anyone who wishes to home a sighthound even a first timer as he appears to be a quiet uncomplicated dog who just wants to please.


Not with a resident cat please.  Black dogs never come out well on Photo's so Please come and see him in the flesh.  Lovely Dog.




Toby is 3 1/2 years old male greyhound from a local trainer who is now looking for a forever home.

He is a very attractive brindle dog with  cute expressive ears and a fun loving character.

Toby has never been in a home before so needs someone who will gently teach hime and show him the sounds and experiences in a normal household.


This happy, tail wagging boy enjoys his walks, is good on the lead and reacts well in other greyhounds company.

Toby is very food orientated so a bit of training in manners may be required.

Not with cats, Furries or small children please.



Please contact us for more information about any of these dogs or the other lovely dogs we are looking after. We will do our best to match you up with your ideal companion.
