I took Ares home last night on short term foster. I really didn't know I had him, he settled straight away. Last night he decided to stay downstairs when we went to bed, not a sound from him. I got up around 3.30 to check in him and he had come upstairs and was lying by the bedroom door. He has investigated everywhere and has discovered the sofa already!! He is so very well behaved.

He has come with me to the kennels today and has spent most of the day chilled out and relaxed. He also travels really well in the car.

He really is a super lad and very affectionate, we desperately want to get him into his a forever home. If you would like to view him or get any more information about him, please give the kennels a call and I will be more than happy to bring him in and answer any questions you may have.

If I was able to I would have him I would in a heartbeat, but I am unfortunately not in a position to do so. :(

Ares came back to the kennels this morning and went straight out to foster. What a very handsome and lovely lad he is. His owner was distraught to have to return him. :( He is a very friendly lad who loved meeting all the other Greyhounds...the girls were especially interested in meeting him, can't blame them he is stunning! It's obvious how well he has been loved and looked after. Our thoughts are with his family, such a hard decision to make. Xxx

So lovely to meet you today you gorgeous boy. You were so good and calm taking everything in your stride. I am sure you will enjoy the next couple of weeks in your temporary foster care and maybe you will get to meet my boys and have a day out if you have not been snapped up. There will be someone or a couple out there who are retired and around a lot of the time who would suit a mature calm boy like yourself.......we just have to find them for you. From the sound of things your separation anxiety could be managed but you need to be in the right environment with the right people who have the time and experience. At least your previous family did the right thing in returning you to the care of Daybreaks. Thank god they did not follow their vet's advice. That just makes my blood run cold. Keep your chin up....everyone will do their utmost to help you. Keep calm and tomorrow is another new day full of hope. Xxx

I am so upset and shedding a tear to hear about this boy. The thought of putting him to sleep is awful. I dont know what his problems are and I doubt my circumstances are right for fostering him if he needs help as I currently have a busy schedule but if there is anything I can do to help I will. With so many experienced and perhaps retired supporters out there please God let there be someone who can help to avoid an otherwise distressing solution. We will keep him in our prayers.

I have just taken a call from the distraught owner of Ares.
Sadly family circumstances have changed a lot over the past couple of years which has created him to become increasingly anxious. He is being returned tomorrow and I am desperate to find this boy a foster home straight away to avoid him staying in kennels. If you think you can help, please call the kennels on 0121 782 7702.

Everything has been tried by his owner and the vet suggested all different things but that maybe the kindest thing would be to PTS if we were unable to help..... His owner was understandably very upset and is desperate for us to help.
Please if you have space.... he is a gorgeous gentle boy.

He would suit a home where he can either have the company of a human or another dog. He is great with other dogs particularly medium to large breeds however he is not cat friendly. He is extremely clean in the house, good on the lead and excellent with children.

Just a little update on our dear Ares: he is now a proper family member. SO clever. He learns new commends within a few repeats and he remembers them. I have never seen such a bright dog!! He has allowed himself onto every sofa in the house but knows he must stay away from our bed:) He does bark at me (Anna) sometimes when I am in bed and he wants a cuddle, but only when Martin is not around (he wouldn't dare to bark or moan with my husband present)... so off I go to the sofa with my duvet and we cuddle for a while:) He is such a laugh. The other day he spotted a hedgehog in the garden. We thought he would approach it with care and just perhaps bark, like dogs do.... He didn't think twice.. he got the hedgehog in his mouth within a fraction of a second, no matter the pain, and stood with the poor little animal not sure what to do next:) Luckily as we saw it we rescued a poor hedgehog, but I don't think our dog learnt a lesson:)

Hi Anna&Martin, so lovely to read your comments about Ares. Thank you so much for telling everyone how fantastic Greyhounds are; I hope someone reading about Ares will consider giving one of these wonderful dogs a chance to share their lives with them. Xxx

Ares is a fantastic dog. He settled in without any problem. He is so inteligent and we feel blessed having him in. He brought so much happiness and joy into our house. As a couple we get on better since Ares came to us and brought his unconditional love. We have set a strict routine so he knew after a few days what to expect and when and that made him adapt to our household really swiftly. He never even once toileted at home as we followed Ruth's advice to cheer him and reward when he wees outside. He is ok on his own and doesn't cry as he knows we will always come back. Really, we could have not dreamt of a better companion than Ares!!!! xxx
