Millie (formerly Bluebird Susie) in her new home in Suffolk, and no, of course she’s not allowed on the bed.

Dylan (aka Rufus) has been rehomed with Jackie and Trevor of Bristol. He lives with several other dogs - including 5 other KGC hounds

Mr Palgrave of Blofield adopted this beautiful but terrified dog in February 2010 and all she wanted to do was hide away from everybody and everything. It has taken a long while and a lot of kindness and patience to win her trust. But just look at her now.

Suzy (Cu) has really settled well since she went to live with Chatherine in Sept 2009. They now call her "princess Suzy" as she seems to have taken over the house! She loves her toys and especially her sofa where she stretches out most evenings. Everyone who meets her is totally smitten and she thoroughly enjoys the attention! Catherine can't imagine life without her now.

This is Bambi who has been adopted by Helen of Norwich. Bambi really is a stunning looking girl.

Dora is the latest Kerry Greyhound to be adopted by Alex and Heather of Norwich.

Beth who has been adopted by Alex and Heather of Norwich has certainly found her forever sofa.

Blaze has also been adopted by Alex and Heather in Norwich. I'm sure you'll agree that Blaze is a very handsome boy.

This is 'Happy' (aka Heppsybar), she's settled into her new home and loves her new brother Jack. She's made lots of new friends large and small and whimpers to see her next door neighbour every day at the garden gate. Thanks for letting us adopt her, I'm sure she'll be HAPPY for the rest of her days.
