  1. Lovely update 🙂 so nice to hear how they've settled in their new life!
  2. Sex: - Female Age: - 12/9/16Breed: - Female Colour: - Brindle This gorgeous girl came back into the care of SGS a few weeks ago through no fault of her own. She went into a foster home while we looked for a new home for her. Her foster family just loved her, such a happy easy girl to take care of, and no where near as much mischief as their previous foster girl! We had a home waiting for Ellie, a chap who was missing the company of his previous SGS hound and who was ready to take another dog into his home. Ellie has settled in with him beautifully with no issues and her new dad is delighted to have a pal again! Be happy in your new home Ellie and thanks to Louise and Harry and TJ and Milo for stepping in to look after her for a short while ❤️

    Steve only came up to Scotland to his foster home a few weeks ago, but he has already made it clear he isn't planning to leave, he's even got the local fishmonger wrapped around his paws 🤣He has a couple of things still to improve on such as his manners around other dogs, but his foster family have fallen head over heels for him and have decided that Steve can stay and become part of the family, and learn the rest along the way. Another failed foster to add to our recent collection! How lovely! Be happy in your new home lovely lad! Thanks to everyone who helped Steve on his way home
  4. Beautiful brindle Hayley had been waiting patiently for her foster home, and when she eventually travelled to Scotland only a few weeks ago, it didn't take long for her to snuggle her way into her foster family's heart. This was her foster family's first experience of fostering a dog and they found Hayley to be such a delight that they couldn't let her go! We do love a failed foster at SGS! Thanks to Michelle who took Hayley into her home for a few weeks to get her off to a good start before travelling up Welcome to the failed foster club! And happy new home to Hayley 😍
  5. Gorgeous girl Gaia came into the care of SGS a few months back and has been living with her foster family for a few months. Gaia was a shy and nervous girl, wary of strangers, especially men, and she would sometimes put the breaks on during her walks if her foster mum wasn't the one walking her! Her foster family worked really hard with her, making sure everyone in the family interacted with her, with loads of positive and rewarding experiences to bring Gaia out of her shell. She has improved so much and is a different girl now, so she was ready to be homed. Luckily we had a family waiting for a girl like Gaia to complete their furry family. They already have two SGS boys Jake and Lenny and they have been fab with Gaia since she moved home with them. Gaia enjoys keeping her new brothers in check, playing with her toys and digging up the sofa 😶and she now has a new name - Stella - to go with her new family. Thanks to everyone to helped with Stella's journey - and especially to her foster folks Ian and Stephie who worked so hard with her over the last few months to bring her out of her shell, we know she was a very hard girl to give up in the end! Happy new home Stella!
  6. Blake came into SGS's care a few weeks ago through a FB rescue group advert and one of our fosterers in the North East jumped at the chance to take another foster in. She drove to the borders to pick Blake up and took him back home to meet her own dog Orla. Blake settled into the home routine quite easily and him and Orla have become good pals, snuggling in the car together, playing at the beach and sharing a bed too 🥰 Blake has been enjoying long sunny walks, sunbathing in the garden, sneaking up to his mum's bed while she was busy working from home and also investigating everything around the house, including sticking his nose in coffee cups just to check! He was a little wary of strangers, afraid of loud noises and groups of people but he was getting braver during his time in foster. We had a forever home waiting for him not too far from his foster home and after one meet up they decided they would like to adopt him and arrived back again the next day to pick him up. So far he is settling well into his new home, getting used to his new surroundings and new routine. His new family said of him "he's wonderful" 🥰 Happy new home Blake. Special thanks to Madga and Orla for doing everything for this boy!

    Sex: - FemaleAge: - 20/5/2016Breed: - Greyhound Colour: - Black Gorgeous girl Yazz spent Christmas in a foster home in Aberdeenshire. She was great fun to have around the house, even if she did chew the curtains, run away with cables and tip over her water bowl several times! She found her forever home a few weeks ago in Glasgow and has settled in to her new life very well indeed, her new family are besotted with her and are keen to work on some of her little quirks, mainly that she doesn't like being left alone for too long but they are taking things slowly and building up her alone time very gradually. Be happy in your new home Yazz! Thank you to everyone who helped Yazz along the way.
  8. Prince Age: - 2.5 (6/2/17) Breed: - greyhound Colour: -black Cats: - YesSmall dogs: - yesLarge dogs: - yesHousetrained: - yesSpayed/neutered: - Yes This sweet boy came into foster with SGS in November last year up in Elgin. It took him quite a while to come out of his shell as he was a very nervous boy. His foster family took their time with him, slow exposure to new situations, new walks, new dogs and with the help of his foster sister, one of our China dogs Seren he grew in confidence a bit more each day, learning to take treats from the hand and realising his passion for squeaky toys! He had some visitors up North over the Festive season who he really took a shine to, and they really wanted to take him home but weren't sure they could as they had two cats. We arranged for Prince to go and visit a lady in the area to be cat tested and he passed, meaning he would likely be able to be trained to live with the cats. His new family have had him home for a few weeks and as can often happen with new adoptions, he was a little unsettled for a while so they had to go back a few steps in his training, slowly introducing him to his new area, building up his confidence for new walks and of course introducing him to their cats. Things are going really well, he's not bothered by his new feline company and we are so pleased that his family are continuing to work with him at his pace and are taking advice from SGS follow up. Thanks to everyone who helped get Prince home, from overnight stays to transports to fostering to holiday cover, you all know who you are and what you did for this boy! Happy new home Prince!

    Sex: - Female Age: - 10/2/2018Breed: -Greyhound Colour: - Brindle/White This lovely lass went into her foster home over the Christmas holidays and never left! Her new family decided that Rita fit in just right with their 2 lurcher ladies that they decided to join the failed foster club! Rita loves her walks and beach runs with her new sisters, and she also likes to sneak on to her new mum's bed for a snooze. She is slowly learning the rules on what she should and shouldn't play with while her mum is out - candle holders and CD's aren't allowed - but fluffy ducks are fine! Be happy with your new family gorgeous girl!
  10. Sex: - Female Age: - November 2017Breed: - Greyhound Colour: - Fawn brindle Gorgeous girl Stevie found her forever home just before Christmas after a couple of weeks in foster, where she learned her manners with other dogs of all shapes and sizes, discovered how to play with toys, and that the sofa is an excellent place for snoozing! She now lives with Poppy and Harvey her hound brother and sister, and she also has some human siblings to play with too! Thanks to everyone who helped Stevie on her journey from Yorkshire to her new home and family in Scotland.

    Sex: - Male DOB 21/4/15 Breed: - Greyhound Colour: - Black with a dark brindle Children: - ok Cats: - no House trained: yes Spayed/neutered: - yes If you have room in your home and your hearts for Mac 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 Mac has been in foster for a few months now and here's what his foster mum has to say about him: Mac is a beautiful dark brindle boy who's coat shines like marmalade in the sun. A glossy boy with white markings underneath his paws and a big white stripe from underneath his chin to his tummy. He's a tall boy with lots of bounce and affection, loves to play games and will chase a ball and invite you to play with it. He's clever, funny and eager to please. He loves people and can't understand why everyone does not want to speak to him. He's been fine with children he's met. He walks perfectly on his lead, enjoys car travel and is super clean in the house. He would be best as an only dog or with a confident, assured dog friend. Mac is an ex racer so before rescue he probably hadn't had much exposure to other shapes and sizes of dogs! He is, therefore, reactive to dogs, especially when they are off lead. Any one wishing to adopt him will need experience of this and be willing to continue with his training. Tends to be better with dogs that are smaller than a spaniel. A very happy dog in his home and can be left for a few hours peacefully sleeping on his sofa. Mac is ready for his forever home now, and is currently staying in Dumfermline area.

    Ah lovely! A very "Mary" Christmas for this wee one
  14. This lovely girl came into SGS's care a few months ago, through no fault of her own. She was in foster for a few months while we looked into some health issues. She had a great time in her foster home, especially playing with her foster brother Towser who is also just a young pup! She was finally rehomed recently to a lovely family and she is getting on just fine. She has a now got a big sister called Patch, and an older greyhound brother called Nero, who are getting used to having a young playful pup around the house. She also has a fab new name Stiallach (gaelic for stripey) which quite suits her! We would like to say a special thanks to Gillian for taking her in when she needed it, for helping get to the bottom of her health problems. She spent a few months there while she began her new exercise regime to strengthen her hip so I'm sure she was a very difficult one to let go! Be happy in your new home Stiallach, and try not to annoy your new brother and sister too much with your puppy antics!
