A cuddle from me today Benny boy. Day2 of training and apart from the embarrassing wee as we got in (I don’t think I gave him enough walkies before hand) he was so good. Responds to some of the instructions already (especially leave) and we even saw a medium size fluffy thing (Benny couldn’t describe it to look at but interesting enough to have a good look) and no barking. Really wish this boy could have a home with me but as that isn’t possible I hope a home becomes available soon..xxxx

Well done on your first training session Benny, sounds like you already understand what's expected of you. It may take a bit of practice to get there, but keep up the good work! Huge thanks to Lisa for taking you. x

Benny went to his first training session today. Thank you Julie for letting us come. He travelled brilliantly in the car and enjoyed being nosy watching everything out of the window and I feel he handled the training session very well. He watched and started following some of the commands (we are both learning these) and although he wanted to have a look at the other dogs responded well. He did have a little bark as he wanted to join in when another Greyhound became excited but with some gentle commands (and treats which he loved) he responded positive....well done Benny let’s get you that forever home that’s right for you xxx..........and now he’s off to Bournville too have fun xxx

Morning!!! Benny here! I have got an exciting day ahead but I need your help! I have the chance of going to the Bournville Christmas festival today (which is on between 2pm - 6pm) with my pal, volunteer Adam, but we need transport! If anyone can take us there and back we’d be soooooo grateful. Give my slaves at the kennels a call if you can help x Benny x

If anyone would like to bring Benny to my training class on Saturday morning (9.30 start to 10.15) he'd be very welcome FOC of course. I'd recommend a Mekuti (TTouch) harness with a double ended lead as that encourages dogs to walk in balance so the pulling reduces and vanishes -and it's worked on my delinquent lurchers and class Greyhounds :) . If you'd like my class to buy him one from our usual tea/cake donations I'm happy to and that can go with him when he hopefully finds another home. Just text or call me please :) xx

This is such a shame for Benny and Monica. As the previous owner of a strong reactive greyhound, it shouldn't be underestimated that this can be a real consideration when matching hounds and owners. It was certainly a bit part of us choosing Bella this time around. Love to Benny & Monica x

it is with a very heavy heart I have to let you know Benny will be coming back to the kennels tomorrow. :( Benny can be very strong on the lead and reactive to other dogs. Sadly he pulled Monica, his owner over a few days ago. Thankfully she is ok but has a very sore arm and understandably feels he is too strong for her to manage. She is distraught to have to return him; she wanted so much for this to be his forever home. She says he is perfect in the house and gets on so well with her other two Greyhounds. Unfortunately Benny needs a home with someone who is stronger than Monica and can provide him with the training he needs to help him overcome his problem with other dogs, Monica wishes it could be her but physically she is not able to provide what he needs. We are so very grateful to her for giving him a chance. Xxx

Now we are all fed and watered I can answer your anxious question. Well we have had a good day. Everyone slept well once everybody had decided which bed they wanted to sleep in! Benny roused once, about 1.00am, and I let him go out in case he wanted a pee. He did do one and, of course I praised him, gave him a reward and we then returned to bed. He slept right through then, part in a roach position, until my son, Stephen, got up for work at 6.30am. Benny obviously has to get used to our routine, what to take notice of and what not, as I get up 20mins later. This morning we went to a secure dog field 5mins away, for 30mins. Travelled in car altogether well. Boy did he enjoy his zoomies. He raced all over the field, round and round. Beau and Honey had a job to keep up with him Lol! Altogether we have had a good day. Still have to keep an eye on the scent marking indoors, but we shall get there, when he finally realised this is home for keeps. This will take time, as he has already known a home for short time, then gone back to Daybreaks. You most definitely are not having him back again!! We are going to the Vets tomorrow to get him registered with them, and joined up to their Pet Health Club they have. He is such a dear and Beau, Honey and Benny seem to be getting along with each other, and Benny is beginning to follow them around and keep an eye on what they do. Will keep you updated over the next week or two to let you know how we are progressing with each new adventure

Wees just got this message posted on mees Facebook page..

Benny has arrived and we are in the process of settling in. He, Beau and Honey seem to have accepted each other, so far. He has peed on just about every plant, shrub and upright that he can find. Definitely marking his territory!! I've also caught him doing it indoors, but put him straight out, then praised when peed again. This is obviously going to be work in progress, as obviously he is quite stressed. He has found my son's bed!! Oh and has sorted out where the treats are kept!! Will keep you up-to-date with how he settles. He loves a tummy rub Lol! ????????????????

Dear Santa

There is just one item on my Christmas list....what I want more than anything in the world is a forever home of my own. x

I am a good boy and through no fault of my own find myself still living in kennels even though I am nearly eight years old. :(

I have been told I am a handsome lad and I get on so well with the girls, I am the perfect genetlman! I have also shared my kennel with another boy and we got along just fine.

I have so much love to give, I just need to be given the chance to share it with someone special.

I know you are really busy this time of year, but if you could spare some time to help me find my perfect home I would be so very grateful.

.....If you could manage a comfy sofa too that would be fabulous! :)

Yours in ever hopefulness.

Benny Xxxxxxxx

Well so sad to bring this lovely hound back to the kennels. But it was always the plan and having 2 dogs right now is just not quite right for us..

Benny is so lovely and chilled so nicely as the time went on.. he and Febe were zooming around the garden this morning. So nicely and as soon as I called them, they both stopped and went back inside..it was fun to see him enjoying himself with her.

Benny's turn.........

There is a dog at Daybreaks, Benny is his name
He's waited long and patiently, it's such a crying shame
He's seen so many come and go
And really does not know
Why he is not chosen
Why he is not the one to go
What he really, really needs is somewhere to call home
Somewhere warm and comfy with an occasional jumbone
They really do not ask for much, but have so much to give
So please that special person give this boy somewhere to live
I've seen the gorgeous Benny many many times
And if someone gives this boy a home
I'll stop these silly rhymes!

And if the promise of that doesn't work, I don't know what will. That must be an incentive!

Hugs and kisses Benny boy. Xxxxxx

So as we reach the final full day of Bennys time with us. What can we say about the gentle hound..
He is so calm within the house.. loves a fuss..and so good at walk time..waiting nicely to get his coat and lead on. And really good out and about and crossing roads..

His been really wonderful with not only Febe. But also with our 2 girls.

Love this boy so much, someone pleaseeeee give him a home soon, if my situation was different he would be coming home with me but had to settle with giving him extra cuddles in the kennel after walks this morning and he couldn’t get enough of the belly rubs and kept asking for more. He sooooo deserves his forever home soon xxx

I can't say how many times Charlie Mouse has had a go at us - and all to do with neck and back pain (oh and from being woken up or wanting the settee to himself!) but we NEVER EVER considered returning him. Well, apart from when he wouldn't keep his Easter Bunny ears on to go out in ........!

I totally agree with all the positive comments about the lovely Benny, he is in NO WAY at fault here- our Greys (all our dogs) rely on us to keep them safe and out of trouble unfortunately the dogs suffer when things go wrong, people rarely admit the blame is theirs :( . However Benny's better off back with us to find his forever home. Just a point here too - I know Ruth and Kate's spiel to new adopters, I know what home checkers say when they visit - leaving a dog with a safe place is always stressed, leave them alone when they are on their bed, call them to you & don't approach them.I could go on - most of us have had Greyhounds for many years, we are giving you our advice so our lovely dogs and you are safe - PLEASE don't think it applies to everyone else but you- IT APPLIES TO EVERYONE!!!! If you or your family member are bitten it will probably be your fault DON'T let it happen, listen to us and take our advice so you can enjoy having a Greyhound and the Grey will enjoy living with you.

Many of you remembered our Sammie D. He was returned through snapping at a child while on his bed during the first week in a home. He came to us and snapped at my husband while he was cuddling him in his bed. This too during his first couple of weeks with us. During the next 10 years or so,after he had settled in, he took part in hundreds of roadshows with kids all over him. He could be trusted completely.
These days our Monty did the same during his first few weeks with us. Now as many of you know he is just a snuggle monster on roadshows pawing at kids for more fuss. He's also got a waiting list of people wanting to adopt him if we ever get fed up with our wonderful trustworthy boy
Moral in this is LET THEM SETTLE IN

Thanks for all the comments about Bennys return. All the comments left have been approved as it echoes what we feel at the kennels. His owners are very upset to return him but understandably were shocked and upset by what happened.
It is a very frightening thing when it is from a generally very placid dog. If he meant true aggression he would have caused more than buising to the visitor. With pressures from the family they felt they couldn't keep him. We would rather he was returned than stay in a home where it could cause further issues.

These comments I hope will reiterate one very important thing.... do not touch a dog... especially a new arrival... when they are laying down. Call them to you for fuss as they will come if they are accepting.

We are now faced with covering his treatment as his insurance cover had to be cancelled on his return. Please click the donate button on his page and make a difference. Thanks for caring x

Sorry, I feel compelled to make a further comment regarding the snapping incident. Here goes. My first ever grey was Max 1 (from herein called Bob because he was fawn and had the hugest bobbly eyes). I confess I knew nothing about greyhounds other than accompanying my dad who was a bookmaker to the track. Bob was as most Grey's) the sweetest gentlest dog you could meet. My son's used to lie all over him and he never batted an eyelid. One night my oldest son went to his bedroom, did not turn on the light and dived on to his bed, not realising Bob was already on it. Bob was startled, jumped up and bit my son on the lip. I took him to A & E and after a battle for him to be seen by a doctor I was told I needed to have Bob PTS. My son was distraught as he said it was not Bob's fault. Needless to say Bob had many more years with us until we lost him at 14.I a dog should not be judged on one incident, particularly if it's space has been invaded. Completely agree with BigEars. Sorry, rant over for now. X

A few weeks ago I was sad to go on what I thought was my last walk with Benny. Today I was even sadder to take him on his first walk back at Daybreaks. He enjoyed his walk but is obviously perplexed at being back at kennels.
Hopefully the xray on his leg will indicate whether he has a pain issue and then we can hopefully find a home committed to bringing the best out of this wonderful hound.

I so hoped it wasn't Benny. If a dog is in pain exceptions have to be made particularly if the dog is on his bed which he should be allowed to consider his "safe zone" such a shame a home is out there Benny. Please people I have said many times do not over look the older dogs they have so much to give and watching them adapt to their new life is so rewarding, but this takes time especially when you take on board everything they have to learn and process.

I'm sorry if this offends anyone, but 2 weeks... really? None of us who have been adopted by these beautiful hounds, will ever fully understand what each & every one of them has been through in their previous life. Time & patience is what they all need and deserve whilst adjusting to their new life, where the language being spoken is probably foreign to them and they are learning new rules. Many humans don't react well to being woken from sleep and as Benny is nursing an injury he's quite rightly protected himself when approached on what should be his 'safe area' his bed. Keeping our fingers & paws crossed for positive news from your X-rays Benny. Big hugs xxxx

I am absolutely broken hearted that Benny has been returned after finally being homed 2 weeks ago. Sadly he snapped at a visitor.

He is on medication and due to have x-rays this coming week as he hurt his leg recently.

In Benny's defence, he has never shown any aggression like this during his previous long stay at Daybreaks and the visitor did touch him whilst he was laying down on his bed. In addition, he must clearly be in pain from his leg so sadly he was possibly reacting because of this :-(

We have the same with our youngest Grey (who’s now ten). We nicknamed her Miss Piddle Pants because she always woke us at about 5.30 am needing a wee! She’s still the same now, but better if she’s upstairs with us (although this upsets our eldest boy, who can’t climb the stairs!). Ours are in fleecy night coats too and they know this is the signal for bed-time. It’s early days, so I’m sure you’ll all settle into your routine soon. Now, I must get to bed, my Grey has me well-trained and I need to be up at 5.30 am to let her ladyship into the garden :) Mand x

Mine did this too for the first few months we had her, it wasn't a problem in the week because one of us was close to getting up and getting ready for work but it meant we had some very early mornings at weekends. We chose to get up with her but then she started coming upstairs and sleeps on her bed in our room so it stopped. She still gets up about 6am though and takes herself downstairs to stretch out on the settee lol, but I can't remember the last time she woke us up and so hopefully it will settle down for Benny as he gets more used to being in a home xx

We do hear him whining early on but we think he's just moaning at being a little chilly first thing.

Hi Rachel & Dan, the music is on in the kennels for the dogs all the time. My sister used to leave the radio on for her Greyhound, usually a channel with lots of talking or Classic FM. I leave a lamp on in the lounge for my two boys. The kennels also sell the calming tablets mentioned. I too used to give my lass Twiggy a Kong when I was going out, she loved it so much she never used to notice I had left! Benny does like his treats; so something like this may help him. Poor lad has been in kennels most of his life, hopefully when he gets used to his new environment he will start to settle. Xxx

Hi Rachel & Dan A calming plug may help..the downside with those is you have to keep the dog in the room it's plugged in We can highly recommend the non-sedating calming tabs Serene UM, available at good pet shops for such situations I'm sure they have some at Daybreaks too Need to use them for a few days to take effect but we'll worth trying Remember they are always there to give advice and to help you x X x

Aw bless him, he just needs time and patience which I'm sure you will give him, everything is so new and strange for him. We got a Dapp collar for our Grey Jack and that seemed to help, maybe worth a try. Xxxxxx

A Kong might be useful for Benny when left alone for any period of time? When we first got Ellie she would get so upset when left alone, whining and ramming herself into the dog gate if she couldn't see us. We got a Kong and stuffed it with peanut butter and a few dog biscuits and then froze it (so it would last longer) and started "alone training" her with it. We'd leave it with her and then leave and stand outside the door for about 5 minutes and then 10 etc and when we came back we'd take the kong off her so she associated us leaving with something positive happening. Slowly over days and weeks you'd ideally build up time left. We did have her on calming tablets too that we got from the kennels (but that was more cause of her food thiefing habits!) Hope that helps, good luck :) xx

We also did a lot of 'practice' of leaving her alone. Without acknowledging her on leaving or return, we would go out for short periods of time. Sometimes we would just go into the porch and other times we would go round the corner of our road. We were trying to reassure her that us coming and going was no big deal as well as the fact that we would ultimately come back again x

My dog, Maggie, didn't like being left downstairs on her own for the first few months. She would whine and pace. I bought her a soft crate, which I think helped her settle down. Ultimately though I think it was just time and patience. At the weekend now when I don't have to get up for work, she still gets fed about normal time but then I go back to bed for a few hours and she is fine. We would also always leave the radio on for her and tried a frozen Kong stuffed with boiled potatoes to occupy her. Good luck. I'm sure he will settle down once he gets used to his new home x

Benny is having troubles being left even when we just pop upstairs. Earlier was upstairs for half an hour - he broke through the dog gate and then wee'd in the lounge! Got a calming plug now, hopefully that'll work.

Benny went home today! :)) He couldn't wait to jump into the car and be on his way. The look on his face was priceless when we were messing around trying to fit a pet gate in the back with him; he looked at us as if to say "Get on with it, I'm going home!" We will all miss seeing him at the kennels but wish him the happy life he so deserves. Xxx

I took a few treats in for Benny this afternoon. You don't enter a kennel with two hounds like Benny and Sheila without a good deal of chaos. What a laugh!
Shelia is a cheeky little monkey and was jumping all over the place trying to nick treats.
Benny is a real gent. He stood patiently hoping for his fair share of treats but was rewarded with a few extra bits. There's always a bit of competition between the volunteers to take Benny for a walk. He's a very popular lad and it baffles me why he is still waiting for a home.

Now come on Benny, you have to fight for you're sofa so here are some tips for you when you see a promising parent.
1. Jump off that bed and wag that tail furiously.
2.Stand upright and poke one of you're front legs
through the bars of you're kennel.
3.Lots of licking and crying.
4.Don't forget the sad eyes bit.
Follow these tips And I'm sure it will result in your forever loving home. x

Our fabulous Benny donated blood to the Pet Blood Bank for the second time today :)

He is a very friendly lad and gets on really well with the girls. His latest kennel mate, Blaze will be going home very soon. He will be on his own again. :(

It would be fantastic to see Benny find the perfect home. Yes, he is a big strong lad and he does need some help with socialising with other breeds of dog. He is also one of our older boys, but everyone who has met him are surprised at how young he looks. Must be the hair dye!

if you think you could offer Benny the home of his dreams please pop in and meet him at the kennels!

Benny is such a handsome friendly lad, but because he has spent his life in kennels he seems to struggle with learning that other breeds are out in the world.
He would really benefit either going to training classes or someone taking him out the park so he can get used to other breeds and learn to get along with them.
He really is a super lad, he just needs someone to take some time... xxx

What a lovely looking hound. Will have to get to the kennels early on Saturday to meet all of these wonderful greyhounds.
