Shadow needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. Shadow needs commitment to exercise outside on a muzzle and support him in relaxing around other dog's company. Shadow need a enclosed secure garden in order for him to enjoy off lead exercise. Shadow needs to be a only pet. Shadow could live around children but providing strict exit management/ front door drill. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Shadow owned since a puppy, his owner died and he travelled into Rescue from Leicester. Shadow then came to us when a volunteer asked us if we could help. Shadow is neutered, chipped and vaccinated. Currently in boarding kennels near Godstone.

About Shadow: Aptly named Shadow will be your shadow if allowed..but then he is also chilled in the home and like all Greyhounds..happy to watch. Easy company. Shadow has chase/ prey drive so needs to be muzzled in public but very relaxed now around dogs which is different to how he arrived. Shadow has regained his confidence around dogs and his play instincts are there. Shadow travels well and is a back seat lounger as he is a sofa loofa.

Shadow is a 7 year old Greyhound lurcher with a grey brindle coat and arrived with half a tail. He has gained weight and his tummy has settled on a raw food diet. He has lost fur which is probably due to stress in long-term kennelling, our vet has investigated and found no condititional cause: Shadow is not bothered by this. Shadow has a big fan club following wishing him that his family finds him soon!

***PLEASE HELP: We have to ask for £175 donation at the time of adoption, as we can't support so many dogs without funds. We have no state sponsorship and exist on the goodwill of the public and our supporters. Rescue Remedies offers their dogs back up for life.

Original Referral: Urgent referral via one of our volunteers to help Shadow whose Rescue is not going to continue with him.
Shadow came to us very under weight but over the course of a week has be wormed and he is on a build diet and beginning to put on weight again. He is housetrained and tries to keep his kennel clean. He is beginning to walk with other dogs and beginning to relax in their company. We are going to muzzle him on his walks so he can relax more.

Shadow is an affectionate and gorgeous boy, he's not a fan of other dogs at the moment but has been walking with Sam & Chris' lurcher Peggy who's very chilled and an excellent role model. He gives the most awesome cuddles, takes treats gently, sits beautifully, play bows and offers you his tuggy toy, kisses your hands and wags his little stumpy tail ten to the dozen, ADORABLE. Went out with Sasha today and he was easily distracted from any concern about other dogs with a 'sit' and a some strokes.
Can't wait to see him again!

I walked Shadow the other day, and he was soooo Gentle, and doesn't pull at all, and was really affectionate also. Not too keen on other dogs, but other than a bark that was it! Really loving and clearly adores people, would make someone a fabulous companion, as you can see he is just desperate to be devoted to someone. :smiley-gen132.gif:

Some photos of the lovely boy after his walk with Estelle, I got a few lovely cuddles. I can't see him without kissing his head, he's very special.

Shadow definitely has a very kissable head :)
He won many more admirers at Godstone yesterday, and enjoyed a lovely long walk with China and then Roxy and Sandy joined in the fun too. After his walk it was time for a photoshoot for this very handsome boy :smiley-love014.gif: ...

I had the absolute pleasure of walking Shadow both on Saturday and when i went yesterday :biggrin.gif:

I got a greeting like i was a long lost friend :oops:

A Greyhound is a new breed for me and what a lovely experience it was. He is a very calm, gentle boy when out walking - walks beautifully on the lead....hardly know he's there.

Yesterday, he had a walk with our lovely Obama (& Debbie) who is also such a calm boy so they literally walked alongside each other for the whole walk with no problems at all.

This boy has so much potential and would be an easy addition to most families.

Shadow is an amazing dog and has stolen my heart. He adores people and if he had to chose between a treat or human praise, it would always be the later, without a doubt.

When he was at the Guildford kennels I walked him nearly everyday and I found him very easy to train as he is so 'people orientated'. He loves his walks and is very good on the lead. If he does become nervous of a dominant dog approaching too close, he will always let you know by looking up at you and all you have to do it to calmly tell him to sit until the dog has passed.

He will make a fantastic loyal pet and it is just so unfortunate that his original owner died. All he wants is the simple life and for an owner to call his own. Please someone give Shadow a loving and safe home x

First walk with Shadow on Saturday. He gave me a very affectione welcome in the kennel and was easy to harness. We headed to the paddock where I assummed he would be off running around but instead he stayed close and just wanted cuddles. Such a sweet boy. He is a delight. Then we headed off for our walk and was a good as gold. A wonderful boy.

I was lucky enough to walk Shadow on Tuesday (he's a popular boy) what can I say, such a sweet gentle lad who was an absolute pleasure to walk. He has the patience of a saint, he was wearing a coat I had no idea how it came off well I walked into his kennel a complete stranger and manouvered his legs through their holes and he just stood there soo trusting and patient :smiley-love029.gif:

I walked the glorious Shadow yesterday and like Chinquest said before he was super patient while I manoeuvred his coat off, I too was not too sure how to do it but Shadow helped by being such a good boy.

He really in a sweet, affectionate boy who is such good company!

I walked Shadow for the first time today. He was a calm boy to harness and to take off his coat (which I took my time doing!) but he was patient, bless him and just watched me. We were fortunate enough to go on a lovely long walk with fellow walkers and quite a few dogs!. Shadow settled into his walk and was such a good boy. Well done Shadow :biggrin.gif:

Lucky me got to walk Shadow again today. A lovely greeting in his kennel where he presented me with his squeaky :) coat off, harness on and we were off for a leisurely walk. Whilst still walking perfectly calmly and with a slack lead, Shadow took more notice of his surroundings today, a good sniff here and there which I love, it is their walk after all. A horse came over to say hi, Shadow just stood transfixed, when the horse got bored and moved off Shadow looked at me and we were off with Shadow giving lots of backward glances lest we were followed :D After walkies we headed for the small paddock where Shadow showed me he can run, and run :biggrin.gif:
