Home a Hound

Meet the four-legged members of the Dunrunnin family! Each of our current residents has their own profile where you can read about their individual personalities, likes and dislikes.

We’re very fond of all our dogs and we pride ourselves on how well we get to know them during their stay with us. We think this knowledge is the key to matching a greyhound to their new home successfully.

Whether you live in a flat in a busy town or in the country, whether you have a large family of children or live alone, whether you work full time or are home all day, whether you already have cats and dogs or whether this will be your very first pet, the Dunrunnin rehoming team will work with you to help you to choose a greyhound that will be best suited to your individual circumstances.

If you could offer a loving home to one of the following dogs, please pay us a visit to come and meet them in person!

  • Ace

    Racing Name: Sophies Ace

    Date of Birth: October 2017

    A lovely tall and undoubtedly handsome chap is Ace πŸ™‚Β  A gentle and happy soul who walks nicely and has great manners around the kennels. He is a lanky lad but very sweet natured and no complaints from us here so far. Not yet been tested outside of the kennel environment but we’re sure he’ll take it all with good grace. He is a bit older than our average retiree but you wouldn’t know either by looks or actions. A lovely boy πŸ™‚

  • Bestie

    Racing Name: Yahoo Best

    Date of Birth: September 2021

    Bestie is beyond shy on initial meetings, the world is such a scary place πŸ™ Can’t imagine how he got on racing tbh, he did only have 8 races and didn’t win any of them – guess that’s why such a young lad has ‘retired’. He is however a super looking little chap and after a few days has started greeting me with enthusiasm and a super waggy tail, so just needs the right person to gain his trust and help him with the transition from kennel dog to the perfect pet. Needs a quieter home with no or older children who can respect his initial reticence. May benefit from a confident dog already in the home to show him the ropes, not necessarily a grey. As his name suggests we think he will make the BEST pet in the right home πŸ™‚

  • Chloe

    Racing Name: Leave This Town

    Date of Birth: June 2017

    Chloe or Queen Chloe as she is known is a real diamond πŸ™‚ She has had a litter of pups and somehow this gives her a serene and gentle aura. Had to wrestle this one from her trainer as she was much loved, but she deserves a home and family of her own. A super girly who loves everyone but kinda knows she’s special lol . Obviously used to pups so barely glanced at Bugley the terrier before accepting him as one of her many admirers πŸ™‚ Looking for a special home for this girl where she can continue to be revered as she has gotten used to lol

  • Cruella

    Racing Name: Valleys Devil

    Date of Birth: September 2021

    Cruella wasn’t cut out for racing – far too scatty to concentrate for that long lol A great young girl who shares her joy de vivre with all and sundry πŸ™‚ Can’t help but love this girl, her happiness is infectious! Cruella may be a bit of a handful to start with but she has a shy side and this may help the transition to a home. Got to love her coz she loves you πŸ™‚

  • Crumble

    Racing Name: No Detail

    Date of Birth: August 2020

    What a striking lad he is, despite having a stump for a tail! A happy chap who loves his walks and life in general πŸ™‚ Behaved like a true gent when out and about but does have an anxious side, so needs confident owners to re-assure this lovely chap. Doesn’t react to other breeds out walking and was respectful of our resident terrier. A super chap who just needs somebody who has the confidence and patience to see him blossom – we love Crumble πŸ™‚

  • Diva

    Racing Name: Perfecto Diva

    Date of Birth: June 2020

    A diva she is not! A lovely, fun and playful girly once she gets to know you but can be initially shy on first meetings and has found the real world just a little scary. She learns quickly and has already made huge leaps in confidence since she has been here and has been exposed to new things. A lovely little girl who ideally would prefer a rural or semi rural home and someone who can give her the time and confidence she needs to make the transition from racer to pet. Diva will definitely repay you tenfold, a super hound πŸ™‚

  • Dobby

    Racing Name: Headford Lad

    Date of Birth: April 2020

    What a nice young dog. Walks really well and is super friendly with people. Dobby has a mohican thing going on and I can’t quite take him seriously, or look at him without smiling πŸ™‚ He is a big lad and does need some work meeting other dogs out and about, he’s fine once he knows them. A striking big boy who just needs some training.

  • Dory

    Racing Name: Annagh Rosie

    Date of Birth: May 2020

    Dory is a bit of a scruff bag at the moment but will blossom once she loses her winter woollies πŸ™‚ A great girl who is confident enough but not over the top. A happy girly who walks well once the initial excitement is over and is enjoying her walks a lot. Dory is a super likeable and uncomplicated girl who, we are sure will make a great companion, either as an only dog or with company. Nothing bad to say about this girl πŸ™‚

  • Fab

    Racing Name: Burnpark Patsy

    Date of Birth: January 2021

    What a beautiful girl πŸ™‚ Her picture really doesn’t do her justice, she is eye catching with her snowflake, brindle coat. Litter sister to Max who also has the snowflakes and the super temperament. A friendly, happy soul who is slightly scatty on first introductions but soon settles and walks like a dream. Play bowed and tried to get Bugley the terrier to play, he was up for it but she was on her lead, so they’ll have to wait for their game til later. Can’t foresee a problem with her living with another breed, so long as they like a game πŸ™‚

  • Hilda

    Racing Name: Birchgrove Hilda

    Date of Birth: November 2020

    A bubbly little girl, who walks nicely, loves attention and one you can’t but like πŸ™‚ Not a big girl in size but big in personality. Hilda is not an overly scatty girl and has confidently handled everything new she’s seen and done so far. New in and yet to venture out to the local parks but think she will be a good girl when her turn comes – will let you know πŸ™‚

  • Jovi

    Racing Name: Call Back Jack

    Date of Birth: October 2019

    Already on the favorites list from our volunteers to walk, a happy chap who couldn’t be more polite on his lead and around the kennels. Not big for a boy but what he lacks in stature he makes up for in manners. Tested well with the terrier, in fact couldn’t care less!! No idea why we’ve still got this super amenable chap, such a great hound! We’re sure he’s going to make a super addition to someones household πŸ™‚

  • Max

    Racing Name: Burnpark Max

    Date of Birth: January 2021

    Look at those ears!! You’ve got to be impressed and also by his beautiful snowflake coat. A stunningly handsome boy with manners to burn and a super high tolerance level for his sassy kennel mate. Has met the terrier and didn’t turn a hair. You hardly know you’ve got him on the lead out walking he walks so nicely. So far nothing to find fault with here πŸ™‚

  • Minnie

    Racing Name: Minnie

    Date of Birth: April 2022

    A lovely little girl and still very young. Not the bravest girl in the world but does find comfort from a confident friend. Understands kennel life and doesn’t put a foot wrong but she does find new things worry her initially. Needs a confident person and may be happier with a confident doggy pal, not necessarily a greyhound, subject to introductions. A super youngster who, in the right hands, will blossom into a great pet πŸ™‚

  • Patsy

    Racing Name: Run on Patsy

    Date of Birth: March 2020

    A pretty little girl but a big personality! Patsy loves humans and is a real love bug. Quick to reprimand any grey or any dog (the reaction is the same to any breed) who invades her space, just a warning to leave her alone. Settles well with her kennel mates once she has set down the boundaries, knows her own mind this girl πŸ™‚ Can be a little strong out walking as she loves a squirrel! Not a super difficult girl, just needs some time and rules.

  • Ruby

    Racing Name: Ballyea Ruby

    Date of Birth: July 2019

    A stunning looking girl who knows her own mind! A sweet girl but she knows what she likes, funny how the girls are always the opinionated ones lol. Is a sensitive soul when it comes to the cold but once she’s snuggly in her coat, walks well on our local walk, yet to get out and about but will keep you posted. Has met the terrier and was interested but not in a bad way, maybe just needs more exposure, which we are working on. An intelligent girl who needs some time and guidance but will make a great pet in the right home πŸ™‚

  • Sally

    Racing name: Security Sally

    Date of Birth: October 2020

    Don’t need to wax lyrical about her looks, her photo speaks for itself! A lovely girl, has met the little uns and behaved extremely well. Has been out and about quite a lot with one of our volunteers and has behaved beautifully not phased by anything so far, has also had a couple of sleepovers and has been settled and well behaved although given the chance she likes the home comforts of a sofa or even a human bed!! If you’re looking forΒ  hound about town Sally could be your girl πŸ™‚

  • Sam

    Racing Name: King Sam

    Date of Birth: May 2018

    What a handsome (and huge!!) chap our Sam is. He is a real delight around kennels and will tolerate even the feistiest of kennel mates, bless him. Walks like a dream on our local wood walk and is forever a cheerful and upbeat kinda guy. We have been working on Sam with little dogs and he’s such a quick learner πŸ™‚ Very responsive to the voice and now happy to meet Bugley the terrier and even share his bed. Still gets a bit excited when Bugley has a mad 5 minutes but will go back to the bed on command. A super chap who will be someone’s best friend πŸ™‚

  • Scotty

    Racing Name: Hazelwood Shot

    Date of Birth: April 2019

    A lovely stocky, bear of a hound is scotty, just can’t help but want to cuddle him πŸ™‚ Very new in but has stolen hearts here already. Was very excited initially when going out for his walks but with a harness has settled quickly into the routine here and now walks like a true gent around our local countryside, has even been out walking with Bugley the terrier and after the initial excitement walked nicely with him, even sharing sniffs! If you’ve room for a big bear in your lives, come in and meet him πŸ™‚

     

  • Seb

    Racing Name: Scotchrath Sebus

    Date of Birth: June 2019

    Seb has been retired a while, just waiting for a space in a homing kennel. He’s obviously spent his time eating well !! A bit of an unfit chubster at the moment but he loves his walks and we’re sure he’ll be back in shape soon. A super sweet chap who it is easy to fall in love with. A real softie who drew the short straw with his kennel mate but endures her sniping with good grace like the gentleman he is. Has met Bugley and took it in his stride, not yet fit enough to venture out but it won’t be long before he can bestow his charm on the outside world. Can’t fault this chap so far πŸ™‚

  • Socket

    Racing Name: Four Way Socket

    Date of Birth: April 2021

    Socket is a tall, lanky lad but still very young so hopefully he will fill out and stop looking as though he needs a good meat pie πŸ™‚ He’s going grey around his muzzle prematurely which belies his tender years. Not shy but a reserved lad who is still finding his feet with us. A real gentle soul who is taking everything in his stride so far, even his meeting with Bugley the terrier. Walks well on his lead with a halti and hasn’t given us a moments bother. A real nice boy πŸ™‚

  • Titan

    Racing Name: Rockmount Titan

    Date of Birth: January 2020

    What a lovely boy Titan is πŸ™‚ New in but so far can’t fault this wonky eared chap. Walks well, enjoys any and all attention and is a stunner as well! Hasn’t been out ‘touring’ yet but met Bugley the terrier and was suitably polite once he’d had a good sniff (yes we did have to pin Bugley down for this as he doesn’t stay still lol) Titan has the makings of a great pet and we’ll try and get him out and about soon as we’re sure he will excel πŸ™‚

  • Topaz

    Racing Name: Aulton Jewel

    Date of Birth: July 2020

    Bit of a stunner our Topaz and she knows it! Can be quite demanding of attention but a super sweet girl once she gets you hooked πŸ™‚ She is a larger lady but who cares with that face?? Walks well out in the woods, although she likes a squirrel but hasn’t ventured out yet, will update once she has. Met the terrier and couldn’t care less, thought he was quite fun actually. A likeable girly who loves her food and although very new has settled well. Keep your eye on this one!

  • Whitney

    Racing Name: Hollyoak Whitney

    Date of Birth: October 2018

    Acts like a 2 year old does our Whitney, think she’s still decompressing from being a racing girl to a retired one. However she walks nicely and enjoys a good fuss. She was over-excited by our little dogs but we think she needs time to adjust to retirement and enjoy the slower pace of life it brings. A bright girl who picks things up quickly so we’ve every hope that with a bit of guidance and patience she can morph into her inner couch potato lol.
