Hounds we have homed in 2017

If you’ve homed an Erin Hound we would love to see how they are getting on. Please email us email@erinhounds.co.uk

Sid (was Sidelight) has a lovely new home and she ( yes- she !) is enjoying life very much especially the sofa and the country walks. Thank you to her new owner for patiently helping her get the hang of life outside kennels.

Haven is sleeping the sleep of the just in her new home, in true sighthound fashion. Lucky girl!

Harrison, now Harry for short, was found injured and alone in a sorry state but after some tender loving care he was ready to start afresh and is now making up for lost time in his loving new home.

Becks bounced into his new home with Dougal, the greyhound and is enjoying lots of love- ins. Thank you to everyone involved in helping him find his forever sofa.

Corona (now Boo) is enjoying fresh air with her new housemate, Sully (was Jumanji) also homed by Erin Hounds. The look on their faces says it all and is what we wish for all hounds shut away in Ireland.

Rescued from the same overcrowded place as Downton, Abby (Ridgetown Moira) has now found a wonderful home with two other Erin survivors; (Suki who was rescued as a pup) and Bershka who was rescued in a bad state. Thank you to Abby’s fosterer for removing years of ground- in dirt and for her adopters who focused on Abby the individual and not on her age.

Wind (Abbeyville Wind), now Seren, has found a super home with two other hounds to play with and a beautiful big garden.

Downton, now Diesel (Clonarrow Turbo) shows no sign of accelerating off the armchair now he has bagged his forever home with former Erin hounds, Fletcher and Jed.

Daisy (Muckno Daisy), now Zara, is in clover in her fantastic new garden where she will enjoy the sensations of soft grass and warm sunshine in her well earned retirement.

Sonny (Abbeyville Son), now Lemmy, joins fellow Erin hound Tara and big sister Molly in a house full of hounds where he can enjoy love and security as well as his beloved squeaky toys!

Dizzy (Bloos Molisangel) knows which side her bread is buttered and is happily living alongside children, chicken and rabbits. She enjoys meeting up with Coco, also homed by Erin Hounds, for countryside walks. 

Abbeyville Dream (now Daisy) whispers to her neighbour “You rattle the lead and I’ll grab the chair!” Not much to ask when her sister, Abbeyville Holly, also homed by Erin Hounds, bagged a double bed in her first week

Crest (now Fergal) has found a comfortable new home and a loving owner- a far cry from the discarded mattress within which he was subsisting as a stray before being rescued.

Jack rehomed

Jack (Fantasy Jack) has joined an extended Erin Hounds family and is looking forward to lots of adventures in his new life.

Kuna (Ridgemount Moira) was found discarded in a ditch and emotionally shut-down but after months of rehabilitation in Ireland she was ready to take the next step towards her new life. She now has a loving family and is discovering all the joy and love that life has to offer.

Tigger (Farrany Father) has now settled comfortably into the corner of his new house with his friends Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.

Silva (Abbeyville Silva) is just about getting used to the rigours of being a pet, in a house filled with mutual love and life enhancement, she reflects on her good fortune.

Finesse (Farrany Finesse) charmed her way into the hearts of her foster family and has joined their gang. She is looking forward to coming to lots of Erin Hounds events as a new greyhound ambassador.

Full Moon Fever (now Paddy) is enjoying his very first bank holiday weekend in his loving new home and dreaming of many more. Grateful thanks to his dedicated foster family who don’t themselves have the luxury of relaxing bank holidays as they are always working hard to help other hounds.

Lele, now Lenny, has found an idyllic home in the countryside with acres of space to run in and plenty of cuddles.

Bridget Jones is no longer “all by herself” as she now has a caring new owner and a lovely home.

Everything in the garden is rosy for Jumanji ( now Sully). It wasn’t always so and his new family have worked very hard and listened to advice to help him overcome his unpleasant memories from his former life.

Zola (Yorktown Zola) dreams the sweet dreams of a hound who has found her forever sofa and her new family believe she is truly heaven sent.

Daley (now Bodhi) has found a loving home, a comfy sofa and a human pillow and is dreaming of his new life as a much-loved family pet.

 

George (Vertagus George) receives lessons in sleeping on the sofa from his sister Sophie and looks forward to attending events with his lovely new family.

Heathlawn Tiger ( right) made a lot of money for his owners until the fateful day he ruptured his Achilles tendon during a race and found himself immediately at risk of death because he could no longer “perform”. Mountains were moved and he was rescued and is walking normally after some simple care. How his role has reversed… now known as Teddy / Ted, he is celebrated for coming 500th ( in the list of hounds rehomed by Erin Hounds) and will again be making money but this will be used to help other sighthounds also facing death, since he has been adopted by a pair of our star fundraisers.

Paloma, now Bella, didn’t waste any time once she arrived in her new home and is making the most of all the snuggles and games on offer.

Flybe (Farrany Flybe) now Wicket, kept her eye on the ball and it paid off. She has a lovely new home with a male black greyhound for company and the best vantage point from which to survey her new environment.

Hawaii ( now Jessie) is having a lovely sleep having been out squirrel watching. Thank you to her new home for letting her gradually unpack her bags and grow in confidence at her own pace. Jessie will certainly reward them with lots of love.

Luna is getting 40 winks in as most of the time these days she is busy exploring her new home’s grounds and playing with her new doggy pals.

Eva (Fairyhill Eva) is now happily living with a small white fluffy dog and meets Issy, another Erin hound on her countryside walks.

Cleo (was Caspi – Casper’s Lady) now reclines in style in her fantastic new home. This mature pink lady certainly knows a few tricks and  hopes to become a foster sister, teaching other hounds to bag their own sofa like greased lightning.

Chambers had many days of feeling rough on his way to becoming a pet but thanks to the care and dedication of his rescuers, Erin Hounds, vets and fosterers, he is now delighted to be Zachary’s new best friend.

Looking at Milan now, you would never know the poor state he was in when he was rescued. Forget Paris and New York cat walks, he is perfectly happy spotting cats and turning heads on his Cheshire walks!

Rick, now Lenny (unregistered greyhound) is settling into family life and enjoying being the centre of attention.

Meg (Carn Meg, sister of black greyhound, Jet, also homed by Erin Hounds) now Hetty, lets actions speak louder than words, in her new home!

Boo (Soft Booth) is so lovely that his family are besotted and he is enjoying lots of fresh air, adoration and uninterrupted sleep…. just as it should be for all dogs.

Kingston (now Cormac) has a bit to learn in his transition to life as a pet but has mastered lesson one and sniffed out the best bed in the house and is now a chaise “longdog”.

Jubbly (Farrany Fawn) now Mabel, has quickly settled into her new life and is enjoying a rest after a trip to the pub.

Abbeyville Holly is now living with a cat and hogging her new owner’s bed as you can see! Thank you so much to her wonderful fosterer for getting her used to the world so she slotted easily into her new home.

Ray says “Big dogs rule ok!”. His height is proving very useful because not only is he nearer the treats than his new housemates Ethel, the bossy chihuahua and Rosie, the whippet but his stature attracted his adoptive owner as it helps her walk out independently with confidence as he doesn’t get under her feet.

Gilroy finds himself a comfy sofa, a new brother and a forever home as his fosterers have fallen for this lovely boy and he joins fellow Erin hound Kobi. Be happy Gilroy, you deserve it!

 Tiarna, now Mimi, snuggles up to her new friend Max, safe in the knowledge that she will never be left out in the cold again.

 Penny (Highview Penny) now Pepper, has joined a gang of greyhounds who are showing her the ropes and teaching her that life can be fun!
