Katie ~ Elegant & Laid Back Lady - 4yo Black Greyhound

Post by tamakin on Mon Jul 30, 2012 9:32 pm

KATIE

**UPDATED: JULY 2012**

Katie is a 4 year old ex-racing greyhound lady who is no longer fast enough for racing and so is looking for a new family to call her own. Katie has an elegant, almost majestic feel about her and she is very good at wiggling her way straight into your heart! We dearly hope this beautiful lady won’t be waiting long for her forever home.

Katie has a gorgeous black coat peppered all over with little white flecks that look like tiny stars. It suited her race name of ‘Cosmic Girl’ very very well! This lady has ran over 55 races in her long career, and is so very deserving of a soft sofa and some TLC.



~ Personality ~
Katie is a calm, quiet, beautiful hound who loves people and is very grateful for every little bit of love she receives. She is very affectionate with her humans, but is not in your face about it either. Katie is, in short, the typical perfectly mannered lady greyhound and embodies all the reasons why we love the breed so much. Whoever gives this dote a space on their sofa is sure to never regret it.



~ In the Home ~
Katie has sadly never experienced a home environment before, so new owners will need to be a bit patient during the first couple of weeks and allow her time to settle in and learn the home rules. It generally takes 10-14 days for new greyhounds to start to settle down in a home, and really all they need is a bit of time and patience.



~ Other Animals ~
Katie is well behaved with the other greyhounds in the kennels. She has not been tested with small dogs or cats but these can be carried out prior to adoption if required. Often ex-racing greyhounds need a bit of socialisation with smaller dog breeds as they would never have seen them before, and at the start may not realise they are dogs!



~ Out and About ~
Like most greyhounds, Katie will not need a huge amount of exercise. She will be content with two 30min walks a day and perhaps a chance to stretch her legs offlead in a secure area once or twice a week. This girl walks beautifully on the lead and is a joy to take out for a walk.

~ Greyhounds as Pets ~
In general greyhounds are calm, mannerly dogs that are well used to being handled. They can fit very well in to a wide range of different lifestyles and usually adjust to the home life very quickly. Their soft, easy going nature often makes them ideal to live in a family with children, while their love of lazing around and low exercise requirements can make them perfect for the elderly. Greyhounds also don’t shed as much as other more popular dog breeds and this can make them suitable to live with allergy sufferers.



~ Where Am I? ~
Katie is currently being kennelled in Ireland, and will be travelling across to Norfolk in the UK next week. She can be homed anywhere in the UK, but please note that you will be required to travel to us in Norfolk to meet her.

~ Want To Adopt Me? ~
Katie is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, de-flea'd and wormed and a homecheck will be required as part of the adoption procedure. This girl would greatly benefit from being in a foster home, and Kerry Greyhounds UK is always in desperate need of new fosterers. It is such a rewarding experience, and costs are covered by the rescue.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering Katie, please visit either our website’s Adoption Page: http://s300889640.websitehome.co.uk/uk/adoption.html or Fostering Page: http://s300889640.websitehome.co.uk/uk/Fostering.html for information and instructions on our homing & fostering procedures. If you have any further questions or problems, please feel free to email me (Tam) on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk. Emails are usually replied to within 24 hrs. Thanks!


~~ KERRY GREYHOUNDS UK ~~

Kerry Greyhounds UK is a small voluntary organisation that is based in Norfolk, England. It focuses on rehoming unwanted Irish greyhounds and lurchers, as huge numbers are bred in Ireland each year and homes are few and far between. KGUK operates through a network of volunteers spaced over Ireland and the UK. We can look after approximately 30 dogs at any one time in both kennels and foster homes.

Each dog is neutered, vaccinated, & microchipped before being adopted (unless stated otherwise).
We assess the suitability of all home offers, and we have homed greyhounds in all corners of the UK.

Our Website: http://www.kerrygreyhounds.co.uk

If interested in one of our hounds, please visit our website’s Adoption Page for information and instructions on our homing procedures. Once you have filled in and returned the application form, we will then contact you via phone or email to discuss adopting one of our hounds in more detail.

If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. I (Tam) can be contacted through the following email:

Emails are usually replied to within 24hrs.
