2021

Hounds we have homed in 2021. 

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

 

Lucky lurcher , Pattaya (now Jennie) has found a home committed to loving her forever, a blessing about which she looks very happy.
Phoebe (on the right) is now living with gentle giant, Tobermory ( also homed by Erin Hounds) and he is proving to be a great mentor on how to be a pet.
Beam homed We are delighted that compassion and hard work have again transformed the life of one the scandalous numbers of stray salukis in Ireland. Beam, once lost on bog land is now Finn, enjoying family drinks in the garden. Can’t stay…..another one is just coming in.
Sleek Sam (now Buddy) is now getting the red cushion treatment in his loving new home. Thank you to his foster carers for helping him bridge the gap between rescued greyhound and beloved pet.
Danson homed Danson (now Branston) is no longer in a pickle, like many of the stray salukis in Ireland but is at the centre of a loving home with lots of walks and cuddles.
Willow now has a lovely new home complete with sofa cuddles and camping trips. Be happy sweet girl.
Sorbet (now Sally) obviously has an eye for home decor and decided a matching throw would enhance her small chum (and divert attention from their significant leg length discrepancy).
Bourne now Bailey is a lucky pup as he has a lovely new home and a big sister; fellow Erin hound Bella, to play with.
Trafalgar (now Jaeger) is safely on HMS Victory by finding a loving new home where he is proving to be an inquisitive , alert and clever lad who will spread the word that sighthounds make great pets, wherever he goes.
Mui is cuddling up to her new chum, following the death of another female greyhound rescued from a hell hole. Thank you to her new owner for realising that there is an endless stream of greyhounds and not hesitating to take in another needy soul.
Archie (front) is settling into his new home, under the watchful eye of another male greyhound who can provide reassurance and guidance, having once been an adoptee himself. Thank you to the fosterers who have helped Archie grow in confidence and we wish him many happy years as a pet.
Greyhound, Mumbai (now Dave) shows that he is not too big to “roach” and join the many hounds whose lives we have also turned upside down in the best way possible.
Prague (now Phoebe) is a picture of contentment so Erin Hounds and all those involved in the long path to reach this stage are delighted and return to the beginning again with the next needy hound.
This wet weekend has been the very best weekend for Psalm , now Florence. All her prayers have been answered and like her mum, Sephora, she has found a loving home, thanks to Erin Hounds. There are greyhounds stacking up for rescue but they simply have to be turned away unless homes are found for the current rescue dogs, as capacity is finite, so please help us spread the word.
Lourdes (now Saoirse) has adapted well to life in a home with little friend, Benny, even demonstrating the classic greyhound bed failure so early in her new career as a pet.
Yoghurt, now Sorcha, is as pretty as a picture and enjoying life in her new home, with another Erin lurcher called Taeven.  Saluki lurchers are addictive so let’s hope our saluki lurchers waiting patiently in the wings, Prague and Beam, get loving homes soon as yet more are currently in need of rescue in Ireland.
Mahal (now Bess) has found a shady spot in her new home as this black beauty knows how to stay cool and relax. Thank you to her new owner for offering her such a loving home. 
Saganaki (now Aoibhe) in the foreground, joins other Erin greyhounds, Dylan and Mackenzie. Thank you to her new owners who were not put off by her history of being discarded with untreated broken feet and for their determination to adopt black greyhounds who can often be overlooked
Jasper homed Jasper proves that the real thing can enhance a modern garden even more than a statue of a greyhound. He loves well and is well loved, in his new home.
Young lurcher Piccadilly, has found his station and parked himself in front of Fig and Moby, who look a bit bemused by this livewire addition to their family but do enjoy playtime a lot.
Mecca, on the right (now Skye) has decided that now she has got housemate , Mush, firmly under her paw, she is happy to spend the rest of her life with him.
Stix is enjoying her new home and meets up with Toby was Dubai), another Erin hound, owned by her extended family. Though Stix insists that she is very comfortable, we ponder if she will soon need yoga or physio!
Tandem (now Tandy) looks happy as Larry in his new home , full of toys. We wish him every happiness
Dice has done it!  The tables have turned and she has persuaded her fosterer to adopt her so it’s game over. Her fosterer has helped turn this beautiful girl’s life around and deserves a round of applause.
Hargreaves ( now Sam) feels safe and sound in his new home. With his little dragon friend to look after him, this big baby boy knows there is nothing to be scared of anymore.
Following a zoomie, causing the newly laid turf to roll up behind her like a carpet, Maggie (was Tink) believes that if she can’t see her new family, then they can’t see her!
Beautiful Sidney (was Spirit) is enjoying Spring, walking amongst the cowslips and enjoying the fresh air. We wish him lots of lovely walks and snoozes.
Paneer (now Freya) on the left, has been given her confidence back by little lad, Loki. Having broken her leg in the racing industry, she found venturing out into the wide world a bit overwhelming but Loki has taken her under his paw. Now they enjoy happy weekends together out and about in a camper van.
Here is a most handsome face to brighten up a wet bank holiday. Albert (was Kruger) is now happily living in his new home and bringing joy to his adoring new family.
Unlikely Hannah ORLA homed Orla is now living with Ace and here awaits her turn on the sofa with a spot of sunbathing. Their adoptive mum is on the internet ordering a new sofa, having carefully read the small print about owning greyhounds.
Ballyhoe Vouga. Pirate ACE homed Ace has discovered that roaching rather than running is the best way for a greyhound to spend its life. We are very happy to have helped to turn his world upside down.
Parker (was Buster) is taking his new role as “Roast dinner assistance dog” very seriously. This lovely sighthound pledged to keep his eyes on the cooking in return for a loving home. He has no ulterior motive at all.
Ohana homed Ohana (now Tilly) is enjoying life in her new home, dreaming of ways to continue the sterling garden landscaping work commenced by Finn (was Joey), the former Erin Hound incumbent who enjoyed a good dig.
Horizon homed Horizon (now Sid) on the right, forms a lovely companion set with Rhino ( also homed by Erin Hounds). It must be true love for Rhino to put himself at risk of acquiring a gaseous centre parting!
Jack looks like he has found his ” sole” mates and is giving his new owners the hop around with his kleptomaniac tendencies. He has greyhound friends nearby to share walks on the beach and the future is bright for this gentle giant.
HP, now Louie (left), has joined fellow Erin Hounds Zara and Eva (right)  and is settling into his new home with two “big sisters” to show him the ropes
Lucas (now Harvey) is a much cherished greyhound who gets tucked in each night after lots of lovely walks. Thanks to everyone’s hard work to get him to this point.
Percy (was Perkins), has joined local celebrity, Treacle Ted, the terrier who is the mascot of Macclesfield’s wonderful Treacle Market. They both hope to help with the next Treacle fun dog and spread the love.
Thidwick (now Loki) has found the ideal spot in his new home to wait out the pandemic and, after adoption, settled down saying ” Wake me up when its all over”.
Snowdon, now Erik the Red, is living up to his name in his new home, having thoroughly explored the house and climbed onto the sofa! I’m sure there are lots more adventures ahead for this lovely boy.

After spending Valentine’s Day during lockdown,  former Erin Hound, Steve, on the right (was Steed) indulged in some internet dating and found his new love, Poppy (was Guana). We hope they will be very happy together and we have made note that there is still some space on the sofa!
Ascot (now Stanley) enjoys his new home’s dog bed. Despite the logo, he shows that far from being scruffy, rescue dogs are as beautiful as those people who show they really love dogs by adopting not buying.
Tonga, now Maggie filled a hound-shaped space in her new home and joined a new little friend for fun and games.
Some cheering news to brighten up a wet weekend… Handsome big greyhound lad, Guam (now Max) has been adopted and is enjoying lots of playtimes and fun with his new family.
