Success stories from our greyhound rehoming efforts in Kent

At RGT Croftview in Kent, our mission is to provide the very best greyhound rehoming services we can. Our team is dedicated to making sure each dog and its new family get all the support and assistance they need. We are always keen to hear how our ex-guests are getting along in their new homes, so please send us your stories and photos! Recently, our magnificent Arnie and the svelte Scarlett have both found their forever homes. On this page, we invite you to reflect on some of our other success stories along with pictures of the greyhounds in their new homes.

Oscar aka Skipper

Hello everyone at RGT.
 
Its now been 3 weeks since you kindly let me adopt Oscar. Thank you so much he has exceeded all my expectations and more.
It is an absolute privilege to share a home with him, he has settled into a home environment so well.
He’s still a bit nervous of traffic and the world in general, but is getting better daily. He has made a great friend in Bruce, the Labrador, so much so they share a bed and sofa together.
He has even been off the lead in selected places and so far has been brilliant at coming back. He shows no aggression or interest in chasing any other dogs we have met, big or small.
Thank you again so much and wishing you all the very best.
Kind regards
Susan.
P.S Here are some photos of Oscar. One is his first trip to the seaside. The others are him and his new friend Bruce out for a walk.

Woody aka Dippy
Hi everyone at Croftview .... it's Woody here! I've been in my forever home for a month now & am loving it! I live in an ENORMOUS kennel with my new mum & dad together with my kennel mate Bella (an elderly but spirited Labrador who shows me the ropes & house rules).

I've a choice of two lovely comfy high sided beds depending on where the sun is .... plus a rug with a view of the kitchen so I can supervise feeding time! There's also a big garden with lots of exciting areas to explore. Mum takes me to training classes twice a week where I'm learning so much. I even had a round of applause at the last class when I did my first off lead "down" on command followed by a recall. I was very excited & had a little whiz around to show how pleased I was & everyone laughed.

Every day I have lots of lovely walks visiting the woods & local valley where I have a paddle in the stream. I also love going in the car to visit different places for walks. I'm still getting used to all the strange sights, sounds & smells in this new world but with help I'm beginning to understand that life here is good fun!

Here are some photos so you can see how I'm doing.

Love Woody Southgate xx

 

Bella - Formally known as Girlie

Hi Croftview 
Thought you would like an update
on "Girlie" who is now Bella.
We have had her over one year now & she will be 7 years on the 13th August 2017.
Bella settled into home life with us very quickly & knew her name early on!
She mastered the stairs in a flash & her party trick is to run up & retrieve the furry pink slippers that she favours.....typical Girl?!!!!🐾🎀
Bella loves her 'Baby' called Ollie & sleeps with her every night,along with her bunny cushion & 'Florence'
her pink flamingo!
She sleeps well & never fusses once in her duvet!!!!
She is an absolute delight to have at home with my Mum whom she adores!
They Both look after each other & Bella will nudge Mum awake when it's supper time if she has fallen asleep!
She is such a character!!!
Bella loves chasing her ball in the garden & will run at speed around in circles with a grin on her face !!!
She is crazy & fits in well with us all by being so!!! 😃
She loves her daily walks & has a routine that suits her.
Whilst the summer was hot☀️she enjoyed lying in front of the fan!!!!
It's a Dog's life for her now!🐾🐾💜
Bella does not favour any breed of dog whilst she goes about her daily business but then who knows what her past haunted her with?
We are just thankful that she favours human company & is enjoying life to the full at home!
She loves being groomed & having her teeth cleaned !
She will stand for ages being fussed kissed & cuddled & will lie down then catch your eye & the fuss routine begins all over again!!! 😇
Hope you enjoyed her progress report!
Will send her Birthday photos in due course.

A Big thank you to all at Croftview for 
letting Bella choose to live with us!

Kind Regards
Eve

Hello dear All !

 

Sheeba being very timid, she learns how a home is before adoption.

That's a good way to prepare her to her future life.

She's in a family trained to help dogs be more confident.

 

Nathalie is a veru good partner taking real care of the dogs.

 

Best wishes,

 

Catherine

Nick

Hello
Just a quick update on Nick, he's doing so well, we're in a good routine and he's eating and sleeping really well. He  is making friends with the regular dog walkers over the recreation ground, he is frustrated when he can't run free with them but soon calms down. 
Thank you again for all your help and advice.

Best wishes,
Jan

Sunie and Kane

Hi to all of you at Croftview.
 
Sending some news about Sunnie And Kane, who have been with us in Aalesund, Norway, for almost five years.
 
Kane, who has his elleventh birthday today, 15. april, is in very good health for his age. He is running in the garden like a youngster.
He did for some time suffer from corns, and could not get rid of them, until he was treathed with lasertherapy (LLLT).
This treathment made the corns dissapear, and they have not returned.
 
Sunnie has just turned eight years, and she is the real diva as always. She is always ready for her walks in the near by sites together with Kane.
She has never had anykind of problems with her health. Sunnie has her everyday madness moments, running and playing in the garden.
 
We are happy to have the two dogs to look after, and are excited to se their developement still is very positive, and we are looking forward to many more happy years to come.
 
 
 
Best regards from
 
Sunnie and Kane,
 
Britt and Torgeir.

Orla (puppy) 

Just an update.....Orla in the garden today!! She is doing well at puppy classes and is in the next class now. Is ball obsessed and still into a lot of mischief at times but wouldnt change her!Loves to snuggle up on the sofa in the eves.

Jumped on bed first day up the stairs

Alfie

Alfie is doing really well and he is a little cheeky boy but we love it and him?. Boy does he know how to get his nose in everything for a good sniff. So far we have had no problems with him, and he is great around Olivia so far. He sure has no concept of spacial awareness because he is big and he likes to sniff and investigate everything.... Everything around him. He is brilliant and he is truly part of the family.

Molly (Marie)

To all at Croftview 

Molly (Marie) has been with us nearly 6 weeks now and is such a beautiful dog. She is so much more settled, she is quiet all night, walks beautifully and has had good interactions with loads of other dogs of all shapes and sizes. Her true cheeky character is really coming out and she makes us laugh every day.
