Hounds we have homed in 2018 If you’ve homed an Erin Hound we would love to see how they are getting on. Please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Lilly (Jaxx Partytime) was our final dog homed in 2018. She had so much to celebrate as the clock struck twelve that now this lucky sighthound can’t keep her eyes open……..which doesn’t matter a jot anymore- enjoy your sofa, Lilly!
Not a creature was stirring, not even a Mouse (Aulton Gold) and why would she when she has lots of cuddles on the sofa in her loving new home?
Dexter (right) now has a new partner in crime, just in time for Christmas as Salsa (now Saskia) has danced her way into his new forever home and will be strictly playful.
Sepi (now Ivy) has a cosy fire, 10 acres to play in, a fellow rescue dog for company and an adoring family to cuddle up to. She sends out her love and hope to the world’s destitute dogs at this time and hopes people step forward to help them too.
Reason (now Dexter) has found his very own Father Christmas ( who is, of course, not just for Christmas) and is enjoying playing… especially with his beard! We know something you don’t know, Dexter…. watch this space.
Yakini, now Cheryl (Clune Rumble) is starting a whole new life with her own loving family and lots of country walks to look forward to.
Asna was found with a degloved hind leg with which she had been lying outside in the cold for hours. She underwent an amputation and rehabilitation and now has teamed up with another rescue, Ricky in her new home. What a spirited, brave girl.
Alfie (was Darby) on the left is now happily living in a home with other Erin hounds, including Eric (right). How lovely to see Irish lurchers playing with rope rather than straying with rope digging into their neck which is often the case.
Luther is dreaming about his Christmas list but can’t think of anything he really wants now that he has found his loving forever home.
Mardi, now Ruby (Cavies Ruby) looks like butter wouldn’t melt but is loving life and letting her cheeky personality shine now that she is a cherished family pet
Vardy (Ballyhi Swift), now Basil, looks pretty satisfied with his multi-layered bedding and his very own library, while his human servants provide for his every need. Very much deserved for this fabulous boy.
Rosie (Clareview Charna) can hardly believe her luck to have gone from stray, to pound dog, to finding herself loved and cherished in her very own family. She had a very special hound-shaped hole to fill but is doing a fine job and her new family are feeling pretty lucky too!
Banks (now Bill) is loving life with lots of outdoor adventures and indoor luxury. He says a big thank you to his rescuers, transporters, fosterers and adopters.
Olga (Miss Olympic), now Tegan, has taken up new hobbies including bird watching and rambling which are all fairly tiring as you can see.
Kent is now in the perfect forever home- one that is allowing him to unpack his bags at his own pace without any pressure, after a life of trauma. He is a very lucky hound and will soon learn that life can be wonderful too. .
Brennan (right) and Memo (centre) were covered in mange and mentally shut down when they arrived at Galway SPCA. Now look at them with new best friend, greyhound Izzy (left). They have also bonded well with their other housemate, rescued alsatian, Roxy (it appears another sofa is required!) and Brennan is planning to try his paw at agility soon. .
Wispa (now Darcy) is settling into her forever home with her new sleeping partner, Diva. Another Darcy and Diva partnership for Erin Hounds! .
Sparrow had a very long and hard road to recovery after being picked up with a badly broken leg. Months of veterinary care and rehabilitation at Galway SPCA healed her physical wounds and their love and care brought the light back into her eyes. It’s wonderful to see her now spreading her wings in her new home, surrounded by a loving family. Be happy Sparrow! .
Milo, the whippet, bounced straight into his new home and is enjoying playtime and cuddles aplenty. .
Ricky looks like the cat that got the cream in his new home. We wish him a safe, happy and long life. .

Bingham found something at the end of the rainbow that most Irish sighthounds can only dream of- a safe and loving home for ever and ever.
Fig, mother of Mushroom, also homed by Erin Hounds looks like she has gone from ” down and out” to “top dog” in her new home. What a credit to the resilience of these abused hounds (and to the commitment of her rescuers, fosterers and adopters).
Carson, now Fionn (Hillcroft Hero) found himself in a perilous position in Ireland but luckily Erin Hounds was able to step in to secure his future and find him a loving home.
Jerome,now Olli, was a special homing for Erin Hounds as he was our 600th dog homed. Olli didn’t care about suck minutae, and got on with the business of playing with new sister, fellow Erin Hound Suzi.
Sony (now Brodie) is grabbing a quick rest as his life is now filled with fun as he lives with 5 other lurchers. He is learning a lot and his new family adore him.
Jack (Swiss Turbo) is enjoying the good life, living with a female greyhound and helping himself to squeaky toys (plus a block of unattended cheese!).

Tuba (now Luna) here cuddled up with her new friend and pillow, Penny, was one of an orchestra of dogs removed from the pits who are now centre stage and loving it..
Nanny (Freedom Portrait) is certainly as pretty as a picture. Thank you to her adopter for not overlooking her as this stunning girl is 9yrs old. Nanny knows better than anyone that age should not be a barrier to happiness.
