Please give a warm welcome to our beautiful greyhound girlie, Doris
Doris was signed over to the Home from a rescue, and clearly she was bred for racing. You can clearly see the tattoo in her ear, but luckily for Doris it seems she was a bit rubbish at racing and was quickly retired from this unpleasant 'sport'.
Doris seemed rather pleased with her new surroundings, not least of all because she could actually get to play with the little furry toy, instead of having to course around a track .....
Go get it Doris!
Doris looked so pleased with herself for finally catching it!
Yey! I won!!!!
Indeed you did sweetie! You've hit the jackpot Doris!
Doris really is all about the fun! We played some hide and seek with her...
There's no flies on this girl!
And your prize Doris - a lifetime's supply of the very best dog food!
Doris had an absolute blast in the garden! It was as if she was determined to make up for her lost puppyhood!
OMG - this one squeaks!
Can I keep it?
'Course you can Doris!
As Doris has been signed over, she is available for rehoming immediately.
For more information, or if you'd like to meet Doris, please phone the Dogs' Home: 029 2071 1243 or visit Cardiff Dogs' Home, Westpoint Industrial Estate, Penarth Road, open 7 days a week, 10.30 - 4pm

I took dear Doris out this morning and it was my first time walking a greyhound. She was wonderful, so well behaved and didn't pull on the lead at all. She's tall (someone described her as like a mini-horse!) and I was able to just about touch her back with my hand without having to bend down (I'm 5'3" for perspective). She took treats oh-so delicately, good girl! She has the softest, most velvety neck too. Hope she won't be waiting too long for her new family, she's a sweetie.
I absolutely love this affectionate girl 💜💜 I've taken Doris out a few times now and she is such a pleasure to walk. She walks on a loose lead and isn't bothered at all by other dogs (even small ones). However we did see a rabbit once by the Ely trail, her ears pricked up and she stared for a while but that was about it. Bless her. She also likes the water, I found that out when she decided to have a dip in the river (it was more like a paddle for Doris) so be aware, if she stares at the water she is definitely thinking about having a dip haha. She also likes giving kisses and does like to show affection now and then 😊😊 Doris is faultless and I wish her all the best finding her furever home 💜💜💜
Dear Doris joined us for the loveliest, most relaxing walk this morning along the river. She and Sailor got on so well, walking side by side in total harmony. Doris is very smiley a quite partial to a fuss! She absolutely loved leaning against us and having a tickle of the ribs. Despite being quite a big dog (tall) she would be no trouble at all, in fact you'd barely know she I was around, she's Mrs Chilled. So if you're having a bad day at work and need something to help you relax and unwind look no further than this special girl.
