Orleen sadly found herself in a pound. But not for long!
  • Female
  • Adult (over 1 year)
  • Dog friendly: Yes
  • Cat Friendly: No

Because one of our rescue colleagues in Ireland got her from the pound and she is now in our care.

Orleen is a Greyhound but she has never raced, why we do not know.

She is 2 years old and is good with larger dogs but is not cat friendly.

She has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, treated for fleas and worms and has her own Pet Passport.

She is a typical greyhound preferring to eat and sleep more than anything else.

Orleen is in foster in Hampshire.

Foster Mommy Update....

Update on Orleen (we have shortened it to Orla). Day 5 and this little girl is settling in nicely to her routine.

Her day starts with wee wees in the garden and breakfast in bed (she goes back into her crate to enjoy her food with a slow feeder).

Walkies, and boy does she enjoy this, she knows we go in the car and happily lies down until we arrive. Will always do her business a few mins into the walk. Orla loves sniffing and walking next to her foster fur brother Mr Twigg but also happy to take the lead.

Back home it is time for play and zoomies in the garden with Twigg. Then its work time, she would make an ideal office dog as she sleeps in her bed by our desks until dinner. Walkies again then her favourite part of the day - lying by the fire with her mouth open and tongue poking out.

Sleeps through the night in her crate - not a peep out of her. Total treasure! x

Update No. 2

In the house

Orla is very quiet in the house and just loves sleeping on her back with legs in the air which means she is relaxing. She is very good at telling you if she wants to go out to the toilet. Her character is definitely coming out as she steels my slippers regularly and toilet rolls (standard) - but she will drop now.  She is very affectionate and loves a cuddle. Orla has learnt the command 'down' but will only do this in the lounge!

Out on a walk

Orla walks very nicely and close to your leg. However, if she sees another dog she goes into a bit of a meltdown of excited squeals.After a while she will calm down a bit. Interestingly she walked out with a toy poodle (white and fluffy) and a deer hound yesterday. It was the deer hound she lunged at and she ignored the white fluffy. On Saturday she walked with a bigger fluffy Labradoddle and after getting over excited at the beginning of the walk did calm down and even walked next to him.She has also walked calmly past sheep which is good.
