Hounds we have homed in 2019. If you’ve homed an Erin Hound we would love to see how they are getting on. Please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Having hung up his stocking, Hampton snuggles down on his chair and waits with his new friends, Molly (rear bed) and Loki (was Erin hound, George- foreground) for the stroke of midnight to thank all those in Ireland and Cheshire who turned their lives around and made sure their stockings will always be full of love.
Thank you to the rescuers, fundraisers, transporters, fosterers and adopters who helped Disney move from a cold ditch to a warm bed. We need to do the same over and over again for other Irish sighthounds because due to continuing greed, ignorance and lack of political will, their suffering shows no sign of abating. Will you step up in this season of good will and help us change other innocent lives like Disney’s?
Swayze (now Paddy) was lost and confused while stray in Ireland but now has housemate lurcher, Bart ( left) to show him the ropes of living in a home. The first lesson was synchronised sleeping and he scored 9/10!
Siam (Ranchers Moll), now India, is enjoying tummy tickles and the company of two other greyhounds in her new home. Thankfully her adoptive family did not discount her on age and she will start living the full life she and other greyhounds should always have.
Dubai (Five Alley Tim) now Toby, has swapped his kennel for a chaise longue without batting an eyelid. Greyhounds are certainly regal and we wish they could ALL be treated as such.
Barnum (now Barney) is putting his paws up after a lovely walk down the canal to the pub and back. Sounds a perfect life for a perfect pup.
Duck Cheese (now Inca) is happily living with new big greyhound brother, Tyler and is enjoying long walks and long sleeps. Lucky Duckie!
Duet, now Willow (Howyatess) is flourishing in a warm and loving family who had a hound-shaped space on their sofa to fill. Thanks to her foster Mum for caring for her and having the courage to let her go. Be happy sweet girl!
Seine, now Poppy (Anketell Lady) is a very intelligent girl who really deserves the indulgence she is now receiving. Well done to her adopters who recognise that our older hounds really appreciate a warm and safe home where they can finally relax and should not be overlooked, having managed to survive longer than most.
Jabez, now Tommy (centre) has found a safe and happy home with his new greyhound friends and a Mum and Dad to love and cherish him.
Zazu (now Daisy) on the left, has teamed up with another Erin hound Monty, to provide a protective covering for the sofa. What a thoughtful girl!
Thames (now Virgil) has fulfilled his destiny and become a much loved pet. He will never be sold down the river by humans again.
De Vito (Penny’s Shahtoush), now Dan, has found a nicely colour-coordinated home to match his beautiful coat and is now getting on with the important business of tackling those pesky toys.
Poirot (now Loki) followed his nose to find a wonderful new home. He will be front of house in his new life and able to show lots of people that sighthounds make great pets.
Amy now Dolly (front) has joined new friend Ozzy and four little brothers and sisters in her new home. So lovely to see this sweet girl surrounded by a loving family.
Bective Robbie (front) is now happily picking up tips on being a pet from old hand, Cora (Corker Gaga) another greyhound homed by Erin Hounds. So far he has learned about hogging beds and not bolting his food. The next lesson is how to play with toys, which he is really looking forward to.
Synott, now Syd has found his home and a new best buddy in fellow Erin hound Ooba, who seems happy to act as a pillow!

Our sweet girl Haze has found her forever home where she will join her new Dad for fishing trips before snuggling down at home. Happy days, Haze!
Dayo, now Ruby (Our Lady Layla) in the foreground, is patiently awaiting delivery of the new sofa but is enjoying her soft bed a lot more than the straw she used to have. Other Erin hounds, Dixon (sofa) and Banjo (bowl) do not appear chivalrous enough to give up their beds to a lady.
Kimble was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth but we are so delighted that he has one now- it is never too late to turn around a hound’s life.
Versace (now Saachi which her new owners tell us fittingly means “Gift of God” in Arabian and “Peaceful” in Hindi) is settling in very well with Galen (was Astro) another stunning rescued saluki from Erin Hounds.
Skylar (now Georgie) is enjoying some wonderful walks and is proving to be a bright and happy girl in her new home. Thank you to her rescuers and fosterers who helped her get to this point. I am sure she will soon be keen to pay it forward by helping other rescued hounds gain the confidence to become a relaxed pet, by taking them under her paw.
Little Gucci, now Mary, is busy spreading love in her new home; it’s a tiring job but cuddly chicken is on hand for a nap to recharge her batteries.
Bergerac (now Joel) has solved the mystery of finding a new home and under a new name, Joel, is settling very well into his new identity as a pet. He says thank you for his mentoring from another Erin hound, Moses.

Violet, now Eva (Black Eyed Vieri) has found a home with fellow Erin hound, Zara (was Daisy). Two lucky girls!
Brannock says “Wherever I lay my head, I find a Dalmation’s bottom but that’s my new home and I love it, especially now I have a mended leg- thank you to everyone who helped save and repair me!”
Razmataz Lady (now Starla) is delighted to put racing behind her and team up with Freddie ( was Saratonga Lingard), another greyhound homed by Erin Hounds, to compete in sofa surfing only.
Sweet little Moyet, now Belle (Fairest Doll) is really enjoying life in her new home and has seen the sea for the first time – greyhounds are not too big after all!
Drumsna Star will always have his brother as a head rest and Drumnsa Legend ( now Logan) says he ain’t heavy, he’s my brother. We are so happy that now they will be together forever.
We are delighted that Piccolo (now Carrick) is living with greyhound, Rhona (was Deka). She looks very happy with her new buddy, doesn’t she?
Its looks like Abbeyville Sooty (top right) understands Pythagoras’ theorem and has fitted into his new home perfectly!
Rasher is a picture of health and vitality now, enjoying lots of country walks and runs with his delighted new owners. What a difference to the forlorn stray, picked up so covered in burnt oil as to be unrecognisable.
Nero (Nero Fiddled) is on his first caravan holiday with his housemates, Alice (pictured right) and Diesel, both also rescued by Erin Hounds. I wonder where their humans sit?!

Old girl Yazz has found her forever sofa and is enjoying every moment of her new life. She is mischievous and causes mayhem daily, long may she continue to do so.

They say that every dog has his day and we are delighted to say that Davis’ has certainly arrived.

He is shining like a star in his new home who indulge his love of mud wallowing and is charming all he meets.
Bianca (Bective Bianca) now Bessie, has joined big brother Otis in her new home and is already making the most of all the fun and games on offer. A much-deserved happy ending for this lovely girl.
Big Black Boy, Mersey (Caislean Shadow) now Billy, is in BBB heaven- bed, breakfast and bedtime stories.
Daley (right), now Oscar (Slaneyside Daley) and Rebel, now Felix (Briardene Rebel) have so much space now to play that they need to collapse for a nap now and again. They owe their luck to Jenny, the Erin hound that preceded them in their new home, installing a lifelong love of greyhounds.
Bungle (now Danny) has a wonderful home with one of our most loyal supporters and will want for nothing. We are so happy for them both.
Vivette was found in a terrible state and nearly dead after months living as a stray, but this lost soul has now found security and happiness in her new home. We wish her and her new family a wonderful future together.
Dew (Noir’s Face) is now called Kid and certainly will be loved like such a beautiful young girl should be. Enjoy your new life, kiddo!

Wifi, now Oscar, has found his home with new best friend Rosie and they are already sharing toys and sofas! Lots of fun times ahead for these two pals.
Dazzle (Sidaz Jack), like all greyhounds, is not interested in prizes, personal bests or accolades. All he wants is a comfy, warm bed and a caring family. With a little help from his friends at Erin Hounds, he now has those, forever.
Milky, (Milky Liquorice) shows how much greyhounds get moved around the world. He was Australian born but ended up in Ireland. Fortunately Milky’s travels ended in England rather than a country with no safety net for his welfare.
Little lurcher, Taeven found herself all alone with no food or shelter at Christmas in Ireland but fortunately kind souls saved her and more kind souls have now adopted her and changed her world. Lets all be kind and make a difference today!

Bruce (Seak Po General) now Monty has made it all the way from the Canidrome in Macau to a carpet in Macclesfield. Where there is a will , there is a way. Never pass up a chance to help a hound – this photo shows why.
Ooba has realised that “home is where the heart is” and now that she is settled she is enjoying trying out all the sofas and beds in her new home.
