Ridders's Story:Ridders is an ex-racing greyhound. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place offering him a life. Ridders is now neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Ridders is in boarding kennels near Gatwick whilst awaiting is new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.

We work with our dogs, who often reveal a different picture and positive skills as they build trust.
Original Referral information: We agreed to offer Ridders and another a Rescue place to find his first time family

we took out ridders with roxie midweek and boy were they v excited to be going out and after a lovely greeting we set off- they were not to keen to go out near the road so we ducked back to walking thru the waterlogged woods off the kennel road which they seemed to love wading thru lots of water roxie liking to keep an eye on where ridders was going and following most of the time then back to the woodland walk for some strokes and treats- two v sweet natured greyhounds

Helen walked Ridders and Jan walked Roxy on their supported walk, both were very excited to be going out. We walked through the and onto the bridal path. Rocky is not so keen on the mud and did her best to avoid it. Both dogs walk so well together, we came across a couple of horses, Ridders for very excited and wanted to chase them! Ridders and Roxy are beautiful inside and out, they would make a great family companion Kiss of love.gif

Debbie and I had the pleasure of a walk with Roxy and Ridders yesterday. Such beautiful chilled out dogs (except if Ridders sees a squirell ! 0002.gif] )

Leeanne and I walked Roxy and Ridders today, these two beautiful dogs are so connected, Roxy looks to Ridders for reassurance, it would be lovely if they could be homed together. Walking back to the kennels they had lots of attention from the walkers. They are so affectionate and gentle, such chilled out beauties. Let's hope their forever home comes soon bravo1.gif

Ridders is now 4 days into his seaside holiday and is doing very well. He's an adorable dog, and is taking on his new challenges of living in a house, in a town, with great spirit.
He seems to be house trained (don't know how he managed that!) and happy to just use the garden first thing in the morning. He sleeps 8 hours through and then after a wee goes back to the couch for even more sleep! We were a bit worried about this at first, but after a bit of research we found this is not unusual, and greyhounds just love to snooze...
He doesn't attempt the stairs, again this is not uncommon but he could maybe be trained to. Quite content with this as I suspect if he found our bed, one of us would be sleeping on the couch!
He loves being brushed, and is always excited to have visitors, he is affectionate and gentle and likes to snuggle. He eats well, and quite politely. He isn't much of a one for toys, he will play with a ball or a tugger for a few minutes (though he doesn't do the tugging part, just throws it around in a playful way), but then decides another snooze would be better.
Here he is in 2 of his favourite positions...

Ridders is quite happy for us to leave him at home if we need to go out. On our return his tail starts going like a windmill, and we get a joyful greeting. He loves going out for a walk, and is now getting used to going in a straight line, often not looking where he's going as there are always so many new and interesting things for him to see, particularly in this awful weather when there are lots of things blowing around. Very occasionally he will want to chase something like a fast moving piece of paper so we have to disappoint him, but a couple of small treats will sort that out...
Understandably he was concerned at first about busy roads but now after 4 days he is beginning to take it all in his stride. We're restricting walks after dark to quieter streets because he doesn't quite understand headlights yet but he'll soon overcome that I'm sure. He's met a few other dogs of various sizes on his outings and is always very polite and excited.
Here he is up at the park...
