  1. Thats great! Lizzy, see you then
  2. Parade is 1.15pm start. It will be nice to see Flo if you are able to make it
  3. Not sure exactly but I'll find out. It's usually about lunch time
  4. Excellent Gill. Maybe in the morning would be good. I'll be there from like 9.30am to set up with Maw It would be good to see her and alway good to have a homeless dog there for the homeless dog parade as they have promised we can read out a blurb about them. But obviously if she isn't ready then she isn't ready 💁‍♀️🐕
  5. It's that time of year again! SGS will be having our regular stall at the Glasgow Vet Schools annual Rodeo. The Rodeo is on 11am to 5pm on Saturday the 20th of April and we are looking for volunteers to come along and help man our stall. There is a homeless dog parade as well so it would be great if some of our homeless dogs in foster homes could come along ?? Public parking will be in the Garsube Estate not the vet school itself.
  6. Homecheck required for PH11, Alyth. No other pets but 2 children at home. PM or post below if you can help
  7. Wonderful volunteers, we need your help. As you all know SGS love to have regular events throughout the year, these are important not only for our continued fundraising efforts but are also a really great way to raise our profile in the eyes of the wider general public. But as you may have noticed we often struggle for volunteers to attend events in Edinburgh, even though we have homed many many dogs there over the last 10 years. We are also now struggling for a someone who is able to spearhead Edinburgh events, by which we mean taking care of things like the flag banner, the collecting buckets and cans, counting the money and depositing it in the bank afterwards and attending the can collection at the start and the end and potentially having to stay for the day if needed. If you are based in Edinburgh and feel that you would like to help SGS by being our Edinburgh can collection co-ordinator then please post below or PM myself to discuss more.

    Simba Sex: - MaleAge: - 6 yrs old Breed: - Bull LurcherColour: - FawnChildren: - Older, 16+Cats: - NoSmall dogs: - With introductionsLarge dogs: - With IntroductionsHousetrained: - YesSpayed/neutered: - Yes We are seeking a foster home for the lovely Simba, who is having to come back into our care. Simba is a six and a half year old bull lurcher. Simba is a very loving and affectionate boy, he's not good with small furries though and he's a jumper! So care needs to be taken even in secure gardens. He had to come back into SGS due to the development of some behavioural issues, having worked with our professional team behaviourist and a very good vet he has been diagnosed with severe back pain, the exact cause is unknown at this time but tests are on going. Now that he is on the right pain medication his behaviour has done a complete 180 and he is like a different dog, no longer reactive towards others dogs and much more chill in general. If you think you can help Simba please contact us - info@scottishgreyhoundsanctuary.com - or fill out an application form at www.scottishgreyhoundsanctuary.org/application-form
  9. I would definitely love to give Matteo a home.  I live alone, no cats, no children and I am in Edinburgh, by the beach.  I can give him a home in early May when works to the house are done.

    Matteo (So Like)Sex: - MaleAge: - 5 yrs old (14/02/13)Breed: - GreyhoundColour: - BlackChildren: - Yes, slightly olderCats: - NoSmall dogs: - YesLarge dogs: - YesHousetrained: - YesSpayed/neutered: - Will be done before rehoming Matteo is the only boy to be rescued from the Canidrome by SGS. From the minute he came out the doors at the Heathrow Animal Reception centre he has been such a good boy. He is currently in foster with one other young lurcher whom he gets along well with but his fosterer believes he could live happily as an only dog. Sadly he had to have every single one of his teeth removed due to the decay but he is managing fine, you would never know says his fosterer. Currently in the Edinburgh area he is proving to be fine with heavy traffic and other dogs that he meets out and about. Quite a petite guy at only 25 kg.If you have room in your home and your hearts for Matteo please visit our website https://www.scottishgreyhoundsanctuary.org where you can complete an online application form or you can email us at info@scottishgreyhoundsanctuary.com or phone us on 08456439335

    Sky (Wins)Sex: - FemaleAge: - 8 yrs old (11/11/10)Breed: - GreyhoundColour: - BlackChildren: - OlderCats: - NoSmall dogs: - UnknownLarge dogs: - UnknownHousetrained: - YesSpayed/neutered: - YesSky is the 2nd oldest dog that SGS have taken on from the infamous Canidrome in Macau, China. Although if you were to meet her you would never know she was 8! She gets on really well with people and is currently in foster with several other hounds and is getting on well with them. Her fosterers feel she would be able to live as an only dog however. She is learning what other kinds of dogs are at the moment, its almost like going to an alien planet having lived her whole life in the racing industry in Australia and the China.
