    MILO

    Milo is a 2 year old ex-racing greyhound boy and he is an absolute stunner! He is a medium sized boy with a rich fawn coat that is beautifully soft and sleek. He has such a kind, soft expression and is a real elegant boy. Whoever adopts him is sure going to attract a lot of attention!

    Milo came to us with his brother Casper, who is also looking for his forever sofa. In an ideal world we would truly love to home these hounds together, and they certainly make a breathtaking pair, but we will home them separately if needed.

    Milo is a bit quieter than his brother Casper, but is no less affectionate. He likes to stand back and observe things before joining in, but when he knows you he is such a big soft sweetheart. With a bit of work on his confidence, Milo has the potential to blossom into a beautifully self assured young dog.

    Milo is very good with our other dogs and never wants any trouble. He enjoys being around other dogs and we feel he would be best going to a home with another dog (or with his brother Casper) so that he can continue to gain confidence from their presence. He has not been tested yet with smaller dogs or cats, but these can be carried out prior to adoption if required.

    We hope to get Milo in to a foster home very soon so that he can start to come out of his shell a wee bit. New owners will need to be a bit understanding at the start and give him time to learn the house rules. It generally takes greyhounds 10-14 days to start to settle into a home, and really all they need is time and patience.

    Like most greyhounds, Milo is a total couch potato and does not need a huge amount of exercise. He will be content with two 30min walks a day and perhaps a chance to stretch his legs offlead in a safe area once or twice a week. He walks like a dream on the lead, and also travels very good in the car.

    In general greyhounds are calm, mannerly dogs that are well used to being handled. They can fit very well in to a wide range of different lifestyles and usually adjust to the home life very quickly. Their soft, easy going nature often makes them ideal to live in a family with children, while their love of lazing around and low exercise requirements can make them perfect for the elderly. Greyhounds also don’t shed as much as other more popular dog breeds and this can make them suitable to live with allergy sufferers.

    **UPDATE: MAY 2011**

    The very beautiful Milo has travelled across to the UK where he is now waiting to be adopted. This lovely boy continues to be a star hound, and we hope that he will be snapped up very soon.

    Milo’s brother Casper has stayed in Ireland where he is in a foster home, so these boys can no longer be homed together.

    Milo is currently in kennels in Norfolk, UK. He can be homed anywhere in the UK, but please note that you will be required to travel to meet/collect him. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, de-flea'd and wormed and a homecheck will be required as part of the adoption procedure.

    If you are interested in adopting Milo, please email me on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk for our adoption application form and information pack. Emails are usually replied to within 24 hrs. Thanks!

    Each dog is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and given a full veterinary check before being adopted.
    We assess the suitability of all home offers, and we have homed greyhounds in Ireland, the UK, Central Europe and the USA.

    If interested in one of our hounds, please EMAIL or PM me for our adoption application form and information pack. Once you have filled in and returned the application form, we will then contact you via phone or email to discuss adopting one of our hounds in more detail.

    I can be contacted via PM or through the following email:
