Come and admire my gorgeous greyhoundy foster girl grin She's come back to rescue through no fault of her own, is 6 months old and absolutely gorgeous.
House trained, walks very nicely on the lead, sleeps all night, cat safe, kind to children, recalling very well, loves to play fetch and super cuddly.
She's going to be a big girl, but is stunningly beautiful with a lovely nature.

Wow, she sounds perfect!

One day I'll have a lovely pointy hound...

Hope she finds a family soon.

She does have her vices - shouting at pigeons, eating chicken poo, and drinking from your mug of tea (she doesn't like coffee though). And though she really likes children, she's a big bouncy energetic puppy without full control of her legs yet so might knock little ones over

Wow, she's adorable. I think she'll be snapped up in no time smile

A cat safe lurcher - where do I sign???

Mrskeats Thu 16-Feb-17 11:24:42

I have a lurcher I love pointy dogs.
She's looks fab.

I'm getting there..... we have decided to wait until after the hols in August to adopt a greyhound but I am so excited I keep googling everything in sight hound.

Have had several conversations with the rescue people. Home check will happen nearer the time (once the back fence is fixed).

Your girl is beautiful. What happened that she had to come back?

CMOTDibbler Thu 16-Feb-17 13:43:32

Change in their work meaning she was getting left all day everyday with someone popping in at lunchtime. Doesn't work for a puppy

Great that you'll have everything ready Flippety. You can get in some serious coat and collar research in that time grin

She's with EGLR, though not on the website yet

Oh she's gorgeous! A lovely, leggy teenage pointy. Beautiful.

I'm just beaming at her picture!

Flippetydip Thu 16-Feb-17 14:26:52

Where is EGLR based dibbler? We're in the South West of England. She does look adorable. <Must stay firm and not give in until August>

It's the good recall and good with children which is tempting me so much. I work from home as well. We could have such good fun together. What's her name?

CMOTDibbler Thu 16-Feb-17 14:56:31

Thats a Milgi 26" coat she's wearing Scuttle! She is full of the joys of pointyness

Flippety, she's in Worcestershire, and is KiKi. She is def full of fun, and is getting quite good at retrieving a ball. She does sit, lie down, clean your feet (turns round on the spot), and could well enjoy agility/ rally x in the future

Love pointy dogs! This is Stanley, our 6 month old whippet.

Flippetydip Thu 16-Feb-17 15:15:50

Stanley is GORGEOUS! As is Kiki - soooo tempted, but can't have a dog and then go away. It's not sensible. I must keep repeating this mantra to myself. I need to stay off all the pointy rescue sites.

Even DH has come round to the idea of a pointy smile

CMOT did the two puppies you had find homes? Your new foster girl is lovely. I don't live in the Worcs area but do support EGLR.

CMOTDibbler Thu 16-Feb-17 18:50:42

Yes, my two fawn puppies have both gone to lovely homes. The girl is the most pampered puppy ever! I'm hoping Kiki will find someone quickly as she is so luffly - she's cuddled up to me now making happy little noises

I want a pointy dog. We have a dog hating mutt so no pointy pooches for us yet

Thomo2014 Thu 16-Feb-17 23:37:50

Wow, we had considered putting an application for her first time round, so am really tempted now. CMOT do you know if she'd been homed as an only dog before? We don't currently have another dog so she would be with us, tho wouldn't ever be left more than a couple of hours.

CMOTDibbler Fri 17-Feb-17 07:46:03

She's always lived with another dog, though her last home the dog was older and I don't think played with her. I think human company would be more important than dog, though she'd love to go out and play with dogs in the park.

Give EGLR a ring and chat to Pip about it - I'd be super excited for her to go to a MNetter

Phillpot12 Fri 17-Feb-17 22:01:17

Oh wow, she sounds just perfect. I wish we were ready to snap her up! I'm sure she will be off to a very lucky family soon. Just gorgeous!!

FenellaMaxwellsPony Fri 17-Feb-17 22:14:18

Oh HELLO!! 😍😍😍

CornflakeHomunculus Fri 17-Feb-17 22:34:43

She's beautiful CMOT.

How do EGLR still have Tally though?! She seems to have been there forever, I can't believe nobody has snapped her up yet sad

I don't know all the details, but I think Tally needs a lot of attention and is a chewer and destructor of things. She is utterly gorgeous though.

My heart goes out to Maddie and Jess though - they are lovely dogs and just want to see out the rest of their days together the poor old girls

George, our 2 year old rescue Saluki. An absolute delight in the house and fab with our 4 cats.
