Wilson

male, 12 years old, Black

Added by LadyVictoria

Updated: Wednesday 15 Nov

Wilson has been returned as his owners feel they can no longer give him the care he needs. They told me: 'They find it difficult to find time to feed him due to work commitments'. He was adopted in 2009.

We are told that he is good with other breeds of dogs. He is house trained. Great with kids.

Wilson has had 0 cuddles today (50 all together).

Ode to Wilson.

You have found you self a comfy bed
No more nasty drafty shed
No more wondering when you will be fed
A lovely family to call your own
A very special forever home.
Please dear Wilson let us know
From time to time how things do go. Xxxx

Yes he has. We took him to meet a family who live in Newbury on Saturday and he met their 3 greys and they all got on really well. So he went home with them! I only saw Ruth tonight to pass over his paperwork and photo so it will be updated soon. I was sent a photo on Sunday of him lying at full stretch on a huge sofa and looking totally relaxed so, as much as we miss him, he has now got a wonderful loving and caring family to love him and look after him xxx

Wilson keeps on progressing. No accidents at night for quite a while now and good in the day so long as we keep taking him out every few hours. He doesn't like going out in the garden in the dark for a wee unless he's on a lead and we walk out first but at times he is asking to go out now which is great. He's put on some weight and is very assertive if his tea isn't on the table when he's ready for it! He tries to bark (sounds as if he's got a frog in his throat!) and the long pointy nose goes overtime on the nudging of the hand!! There are potential viewings being arranged so we'll see how they go....

Lovely to hear how Wilson is getting on, from what I've read on here, it doesn't sound like this boy has had a nice life, but we can't do anything about that, but we can do something about the rest of his life by making him as happy as can be and treating him with the love and respect he deserves, I am so glad he is in a home until he finds his special sofa, getting loved and spoilt by the sound of it. Well done to you for looking after him xxxxxxxx

Wilson has been staying with us and our 3 greys since Friday and is doing well. He has met our neighbour's bouncy collie/GSD cross, and a French bulldog, with no problem. He's not great at going outside for a wee unless he's on a lead, but will hopefully improve with the praise and treats he's getting when he does go out there. He doesn't seem bothered by fireworks, partly I think because his hearing isn't great, but he comes for his food if you call loud enough! He loves pigs ears and has learnt what to do with a Dentastix by watching the other dogs. He loves loves loves being fussed and uses his long nose to nudge your hand if you stop!

I was so hoping somebody had taken this boy home today when I logged on, I would have him if I could even though we don't have the room, but one of our Greys is too grumpy, and the other one is a crazy fool, and Wilson just needs a quiet life, please, please somebody give this boy his sofa xxxxx

It sounds like Wilson is much better off at Daybreaks until he finds a caring home. How on earth a majestic hound like him can be neglected is beyond me but he’ll soon be sorted I’m sure.

How awful I've just seen this on Facebook and come straight on here. Poor boy. If I had ways and means I would over like a shot to have as he would be perfect for us. I can't believe how someone could return a dog who has been with them for such a long time and all because they "didn't have time to feed him" I can't believe that was their excuse

I know I've already commented on your arrival at Daybreaks wonderful Wilson, but I haven't stopped thinking about you since seeing your beautiful face earlier. You've already had 16 cuddles today matey and me thinks you'll be getting even more hooman snuggles over the weekend, as not all us 2 legged creatures are bad uns! We have 2 gorgeous greys who 'rule the roost' otherwise we'd have been up to smuggle you into the car by now; but believe me that before too long you will be roaching on your own comfy sofa and be treated like the little prince you are. Night night poppet xxxx

I too am totally devastated for Wilson. I just can't understand how anyone can return a dog that has been a member of the family for so long and at a point when he needs them in his twilight years. Totally beyond comprehension. We would have taken him like a shot if one of our two had been more accommodating, but Amber does not like other dogs, sadly. I so hope someone out there can help. Good luck Wilson xxx

I think that this should be shared far and wide to stop these people homing another younger grey from elsewhere. Shame on them. Let's make these people known to all rehoming centres, not only greyhound ones so they cannot treat another hound like this. My blood is boiling the more I think of this poor boy. Better off at Daybreaks than with those terrible people, at least will be loved and cared for and Fed. Oh by the way it took me 5 minutes to feed my 4 greys tonight. Xxx

Please rant on Jo! My blood was boiling when I heard the whole story!
Yes, I am very sad not to have him here with me now. Having spoken to Ruth on the phone, Sam and I were waiting - car keys in hand, this afternoon, for the outcome of the cat test, but as mentioned - it was not good!!! We were so disappointed, but hope there is someone out there who will give him a home filled with love.
PS Bloody fireworks already! Charlie Mouse has resumed his shaking jelly position!

So sorry he is not cat friendly, I knew Sam and Melysa would be on the case. Please, please someone foster or give him a home, he so deserves this in his twilight years. Cannot believe that someone would return him at this age, poor little mite. Wish I could help, but with 4 I seriously can't. Sorry, but there are some heartless people out there. I hope that they don't try to get a younger grey that they do want from elsewhere. I completely understand that there are genuine reasons to have to regrettably return a hound, I know this I have had 3 returnees from Daybreaks in the past, 2 of which I still have and would not be without, but this is an absolutely horrendous excuse. Sorry, I know I have ranted, but this ihas really upset me. X

Hi Jo.
Yeh, we said, bugger the room - if he needs us - we're here!
Unfortunately the cat situation scuppered my fast drive down to Daybreaks! I knew you would be thinking of us! It seemed a bit like fate, as he has my surname as his name and is slightly related to Ash! It was not to be for us, but there has to be a home out there just for him.

Yes, I was ready to pick this gentleman up in the car, this afternoon from Ruth's, to come and stay with myself, Sam, Charlie Mouse and Star, but unfortunately he was deemed to be less than cat friendly!!! As we have 4 cats (the one black cat now comes on walks with the greyhounds!) it is sadly impossible for us to take him.

So, please, please somebody give him the home and love he needs (he seems to have had none where he has come from) - there is not a single moment when Sam and I regretted taking on Ash who was 12 x
