Raise: Doggy style

Zane is a greyhound who, due to his breed and large number of preys, will need to be muzzled during his walks.
He’s a sweet boy who enjoys human affection, plays in the garden, and licks squeezy cheese – especially if it’s on a tennis ball.
Zane will need someone with a relatively active lifestyle. He could potentially live with another dog after proper introductions and could live with children 12 and older.

Buffy came to St Giles as a wanderer and is now looking for her for her forever home.
She is a rather shy girl who is afraid of the world. She will need a calm, patient and understanding home.
Her new owners may need to visit the center a few times to help her feel more comfortable and should be prepared to spend the time bonding and making sure she feels safe.
Buffy will need a quiet home without too many people, but could potentially live with an older, laid-back dog pending a suitable meeting and greetings, and older children.
