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 email@erinhounds.co.uk

Everything in the garden is lovely for Candy (Some Plan) now that she has found a forever home- so much better than the concrete walls of a kennel to look at, I am sure you will agree.
Jaxx Brexit, now Dotty, stepped in to help her new family get over the tragic loss of their greyhound boy Rooney. Very much in need of some TLC herself, she is looking forward to all the love and care that they have to offer.
Cabra, now Haggis (behind) has joined fellow Erin hound Whiskey for fun and games in his new home. Thanks to his new owners for bringing another rescued hound into their home.
Daisy (right) is now toe to toe in her new home with her greyhound  housemate, Finn. What a lovely pair they make.

Mr Chips, now Sonny, knows where to find the comfiest spot in the house! This lucky pup now has his own young family to grow up with and life is going to be a ball!

Ginny, now Nessa (Abbeyville Spin) set her radar- like ears to finding another Erin hound with whom to live and located Stan, who was also recently homed by Erin Hounds. They are now like two peas in a pod..


Amigo (Abbeyville Amigo), now Zach, is busy showing his new owners how a greyhound is always man’s best friend.


Olga (Miss Olympic) feels like she has achieved a gold medal as she has just won the only prize any greyhound wants- a loving, safe, forever home.

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.

The road home has been a long one for Deacon but it was worth the wait as he now finds himself with a loving family and all home comforts.
