Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue, Jade the lurcher
GALR homepage



JAYJAY -Jayjay has been in the rescue kennels for 11 long months and has seen all his fellow greyhounds go to new homes, but sadly no-one seems to want him and now he is the the only rescue dog in the kennels at Christmas. Jayjay is a handsome black greyhound who has a very gentle nature. He loves people and likes playing fetch with a ball. He is good with other greyhounds, but can be wary of small dogs, so will need careful introduction to them. Jayjay would love to find a home with an experienced greyhound owner who already has a female greyhound or lurcher, or he could be an only dog, as long as he is not left on his own for more than 4 hours a day. PLEASE make next year a better one for Jayjay, one in which he has a home and someone to love him. Jayjay is in the kennels in Dorset.  Photo at


RODNEY - All I want for Christmas is for my dream to come true. I am 7 years old. Is there anyone who would offer me a permanent home or a permanent foster home. All my friends have nice homes, but I'm still waiting for my turn. I am very affectionate and clean and can be left, and I am very well behaved and good. I have to wear a muzzle when taken out and can be the only dog in the home. I did get hurt by another dog and know I have my guard up as I do not want to be hurt again. PLEASE, is there anyone who could open their arms and have enough love in their heart to get Santa to grant my wish to come true? Please, someone, offer me a home and put a smile on my face.  If you would like to offer a new home for Rodney, please contact Julie at Essex Greyhound Rescue  on 0796 7327544 or e-mail Photo at
