The retired lifestyle suits this Greyhound and he’s adapted well leaving race life in Wolverhampton behind in 2017 and now relocating to the South West with his pawrents.
Alex told us that since Puck was rehomed he’s been gradually becoming more and more interested in other dogs and now loves to say hello politely and will sometimes run about and play.
Puck enjoys a good slow mooch, loves woodland walks, nature reserves and a good run splashing in the shallows of a sandy beach (which is his favourite). Puck walks all over Dorset – Redhill Park, Slades Farm, West Cliff Beach, Boscombe Beach, Hengistbury Head and many other beaches! Spending many holidays away walking, Puck has done camping, canal boats & Airbnb.
You can find out about these and more great places to walk and explore on the Out & About pages.
Rollo the Bedlington Terrier is just 8 weeks old and will be enjoying walks at Corfe Common, Studland Beach and Nine Barrow Down.
Porsche enjoys walking in Piddles Wood, Badbury Rings, Sturminster Newton Trailway (good for bad weather as it’s flat and has a non-muddy path) and beaches like Sandbanks, where they visit doggy cousins. There are often cattle or sheep grazing at Badbury Rings so it’s leads on then (watch out they can be difficult to spot with all the hillocks and ridges onsite!); the Rings are part of the Kingston Lacy estate who have a range of great walks to explore, you can find out more and download maps here: www.nationaltrust.org.uk/kingston-lacy/features/walking-on-the-estate
Alison says that Porsche the Rottweiler is as soft as a brush, very friendly and just loves playing ball.
Lily is a Coton Du Tulear and at 18 weeks old she is not walking far yet but she has visited Upton Country Park and Kingston Lacy and hopes to head to Highcliffe Castle and Hengistbury Head in the Summer.

Leanne told us that Bonnie is the most beautiful girl. She did not have the best start in life and needed lots of love and training, she is super intelligent and can Sit, Give a Paw, Lay Down, Rollover, Speak and her new trick is ringing a bell. Bonnie loves agility and is in training learning new skills.
