Dumfriesshire & Cumbria Greyhound Rescue

Adopt, Donate, Sponsor, Volunteer

Ziggy is a very tall 3 year old boy. He has beautiful black and white markings. He is a friendly playful boy, although he is a little wary of loud noises. He is extremely affectionate and a real gentleman. Gets on well with other dogs (not just Greyhounds).

He enjoys lounging on the settee, and playing with Freya (profile to be added soon) out in the garden with his toys. Like most greyhounds he is extremely food orientated.

At the moment he is living with Viv, one of our volunteers and having a great time.

Ziggy is neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped. 

If you would like to meet Ziggy, or any of our dogs with a view to adopting, fostering or sponsoring then please contact us as under noted.

Rehoming a Greyhound

How it works

Our Principal activity is to find forever homes for retired racing greyhounds. We have lots of dogs to choose from all with their own personalities and temperaments.


To meet some of our dogs, you are invited to come to any of our events featured on our News & Events Page.  (Not all dogs go to all events.) We normally fundraise at these events and all the donations we receive are spent on Vet Fees and Kennelling charges. All our staff are unpaid volunteers so you can be sure that every penny you donate goes to the dogs, literally!

If you would like to meet any of our dogs with a view to adopting, fostering or sponsoring, or would like to donate or become a member then please contact us as follows:-

Telephone Colin on 01461 40066 or 07974 253424


Viv on 01899 880269

We look forward to hearing from you
