His coat isn't exactly tip-top condition, but a bit of tlc and a good nutritious diet should have him looking like a million dollars in no time.
Cash is a retired greyhound. He has taken early retirement from the racetrack and is looking forward to a leisurely future. He has settled into kennels really well, and although being a pet will be a whole new experience for him, we think he's going to enjoy the luxury of getting the prize without having to tear around a track. We gave Cash the pick of the toybox, he picked out a small yellow fluffy toy, and carried it around as if he had won the jackpot!
Cash wasn't minded to race around in top gear when we took him into the garden. He lolloped around a little, had a pit stop at the pool, and a casual sniff around the garden
He definitely wasn't up for exerting himself, and was more than happy to take his toy back to his kennel. Greyhounds are known to be couch potatoes, and Cash wasn't going to bust that myth.
Greyhounds can be very low maintenance, undemanding pets, so if you don't fancy climbing Pen y Fan every weekend, and prefer slippers to trainers, a greyhound could be the dog for you!

Mum and I took the wonderful Cash out last weekend with his friend Lee. We had a great time up the hill in Grangemoor Park. The boys were good as gold, and as Lee was quite timid it was good for him to have a 4 legged friend with him. Good boy Cash. Mum fell head over heels for Cash - his chilled out companionship on the walk won her over. He's a lovely boy.
Had the pleasure of taking Cash out last weekend. He was unsure to start with so we headed back to pick up his friend Lee (The Brindle Greyhound); that seemed to do the trick and we were off! Once we were walking he quickly settled down and was very affectionate and gentle. He has a great nose and definitely could sniff out the treats in my bag! After the nerves went he really showed us what a great pup he is and even had a dive into the long grass for extra cuddles. Good luck Cash!
It's so sad to read Cash has been re-homed & returned! :-[ He is very sociable, affectionate and definitely craves human contact. We took him for a walk with his best friend Lee and they were both absolutely lovely. Cash walked brilliantly on the lead, not very interested in pulling/running really (my partner tried to have a little jog with him but he still walked/jogged to heel ). Cash will make the perfect low-maintenance companion to someone. Fingers crossed he will find his truly forever home ASAP!
You can't even take a picture of Cash without him trying to give a kiss to the camera
Is this chap still available for adoption? My wife and I would very much be interested.
Also, do you have any links to information regarding the process of adoption? We live in a rented house and the garden has some low walls etc (a typical welsh garden feature it seems) so i'm looking for advice regarding home requirements and visits for assessment etc.
Thanks for any help you can offer with this.

Just a volunteer walker here, but from what I've seen the candidates are asked to provide written permission from their landlord and all resident pets/children/adults need to meet the dog in advance. I am not sure what the exact requirements for garden walls are, there is quite a lengthy form that you fill in. Staff in CDH are so helpful, just pay them a visit or give them a ring - they can tell you all the details! Here is a link to their contact page: www.cardiff.gov.uk/ENG/resident/Animal-Welfare/Cardiff-Dogs-Home/Contact-us/Pages/Contact-us.aspx
Cash is so wonderful! Rooting for you two!
P.S. Which agency/landlord are you renting with if you don't mind me asking? We are also looking to rent a pet-friendly home soon, but struggle to find landlords that are willing to allow pets on their property..
