For at least a year before we put in an application to adopt a greyhound from Friends of the Hound, I'd carry around a FOTH pamphlet acquired from market stalls (at West End and Eumundi) in my bag and would whip it out at random so my wife Marian would get the hint. Not very subtle!
We just wanted to thank ALL involved in the adoption of our very-loved girl, Sooty.
Losing 4 beloved pets over the past 4 years had taken a toll on us, but we wanted to adopt another rescue dog. We love that both Lyndal & Alison took the time to get to know us and our needs to work out what hound would suit us and our lifestyle. We appreciate the duty of care shown with the whole process. As soon as I met Sooty, I fell in love with her.
We decided to get a companion for our Spaniel/Collie cross Cloudy as she had been grieving for her long time best friend of 14 years, Dusty.
Cloudy had become anxious, sad and had lost interest in life over the 6 month period that Dusty had passed. We had always thought we would love to adopt a greyhound so we applied to FOTH.
