Meet Max!

Isn't he handsome?! And he's now happily settled in his new home where he is already practicing the whippety dark art of sofa hogging, as new owner Gillian revealed ...
On adoption day, after we had filled in the paperwork and had a cup of tea, we secured his bed in the back of the car and he jumped in immediately ... he certainly seemed happy to set off with us and was very good on the three hour journey home. He was quite shy at first, while he got used to us and our sons, but we have had him for almost four months now and it feels like he has been here for years. He loves the sofa, he makes sure he stretches out far enough so that no one else can sit on it! He loves his walks, and he gets many admiring strokes! We are looking forward to many happy years with him.

If you could offer a home to a whippet like Max please get in touch using the contact details in the side bar and we will add you to our waiting list, although please remember that all adoptions are conditional on a satisfactory home check. And if you have already adopted a JR Whippet Rescue whippet and would like to share his or her story with us, just send us a good photo and a short description, as Gillian did, and we will publish it here.

Be aware: Watch those glass doors!

We have just heard of the sad story of 'Tiggy' who died when she was running from inside to outside, but missed the fact that the conservatory door was shut. Condolences to Belinda and Family who suggest that you might like to add some sort of film to the glass to make it more noticeable. See the full story on Tiggy the greyhounds awareness page.
