Trailhounds looking for loving homes
- November 1, 2018
Listed below are some of the trailhounds currently available for adoption. We are able to supply a full history of each hound, e.g whether they have lived with children, cats, other dogs etc. We take in around 60 hounds a year; some we home ourselves and some go to reputable rehoming centres throughout the country. We ensure hounds are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, and visit you in your home so that we can answer any questions fully. There is a £70 adoption fee for boys and £90 for girls. We have teamed up with PETPLAN Insurance and offer 1 month free insurance when you adopt a hound from us. If you are new to trailhounds, please carefully read our FAQ and training page to be sure that a trailhound is the right type of breed for you.

We are indebted to Dogs Trust who take some of our trailhounds for rehoming. It gives people the opportunity to meet and adopt from all parts of the country. Please note that once a hound is in their care then their homing procedures and policies apply. We are always happy to talk to you about your hound but Dogs Trust make their own assessments when the hound is in their care. Various Dogs Trust kennels throughout the country take our hounds (mainly Leeds, Harefield and Canterbury) so please revisit this page regularly for updates.

Choc, aged 6 and half
- October 9, 2018
Choc is a lovely boy who will be 7 years old in Spring 2019. He is currently in foster with Trailhound Welfare in Cumbria. Choc lives in close contact with 2 other hounds and regularly mixes with other dogs. He has not met cats although we could arrange to cat test him, for the right home.
Choc has been clean in the home. He will need a home where he is not left for long periods, in order to continue building up good house training. Choc is very food motivated which is helping to build up good recall although this is ongoing and a new owner must continue to take it slowly before allowing him free access. It can take many months to achieve good recall.
We are looking for an experienced adult only home with someone who is looking for their soulmate as Choc will be an incredible companion for someone to bond with. He loves to be with you and has such a happy disposition. Choc loves to snuggle up with his human on the sofa, so a home with sofa access is a must!
We are looking for a very special home for Choc so if you meet the above criteria and have a particularly comfortable sofa, please ring or email us for more details.
Zac, aged 6 and half

Jacob, aged 9 and half
- October 6, 2018
Say hello to Jacob who will be 10 in February 2019. Do not be put off by his age as he is a lively boy who loves to go for walks. Jacob was still giving the younger hounds a run for their money this year on practice trails (hence you can see his coat is clipped).
Jacob is used to living with male dogs but would equally live with a female. He has not lived with cats. He is a friendly boy who likes to give you kisses.
Jacob has been a very successful racing hound but now would like to enjoy his retirement as someone’s pampered pooch. He is currently in the North Lakes area of Cumbria, with his racing owner. If you would like to know more about him, please get in touch. To see a short video of Jacob, click HERE
Sam, aged 10
- October 5, 2018
Sam has been adopted. Good luck, lovely boy!
Sam is an affectionate and lively 10 year old trailhound. He loves going for walks but also curling up on the sofa and being cuddled. He is a big boy with a huge goofy personality and is great fun to be around. He is housetrained, walks beautifully on a lead and travels well in a car. He is mostly dog friendly but can bark at strange dogs particularly un-neutered males. Generally he enjoys playing with other dogs. Sam may be best homed without cats. Sam likes people and is very popular with children he meets in the park.
Sam came into our care because he was getting separation anxiety but his foster homes have worked hard to reduce his anxiety and a lot of progress has been made. Sam’s health is good although he does have a weakness in his back legs which has been diagnosed as nerve damage. It is managed by giving pain relief medication.
Sam will make a fantastic companion for someone who will enjoy and have time to engage in gentle physical and mental (‘brain game’) activities with him and will continue to work on his separation issues.
Sam will benefit from a home with at least one other confident dog to keep him company. The companion/s should be calm and happy to be left alone, as this will help Sam to adjust.
Sam is currently in a long term foster home in the South East with other trailhounds.
Jill, aged 9
- October 4, 2018
Say hello to Jill, who is 9 and half years old. Jill is still living with her racing owners who feel she would love a home where she can relax and be pampered. She often spends nights in the house so is already mostly house trained. Jill gets on with other dogs that she lives with, so would benefit from living with a friendly easy going dog.
Jill can be unsure of unknown people and dogs when out on a walk and may woof at them a few times but she means no harm. She may be better in a home in a quiet area where she can enjoy her walks in peace then maybe potter around a nice garden.
Jill is very affectionate and loves having a fuss made of her. If you think Jill may suit your lifestyle, then please email or ring us for more information. Prospective adopters would need to come to Cumbria to meet her.
Ernie, aged 4 and half
- September 26, 2018
Ernie has been adopted
Ernie is a lovely 4 and half year old boy who will make a super companion. He is dog friendly and would happily live with another dog. He is a very trainable boy as he engages really well with people.
Ernie has retired from racing due to a slight injury to a foreleg which will not affect him as a pet. He would be able to run around as normal without any problem.
Ernie is currently with his racing owners in west Cumbria. If you would like to find out more about Ernie then please ring us for an initial chat.
Bonny, aged 6 and half
- September 26, 2018
Bonny has been adopted
Bonny is a lovely hound who will be 7 in Spring 2019. She has raced all her life and as a veteran this season. She is looking for an active retirement home as she enjoys her long walks. Bonny could live with another dog, and is also used to cats.
Bonny will need a secure garden and an owner who will be able to keep her safely on a long lead until fully trained to recall. Bonny is currently in Cumbria with her racing owners. Prospective adopters will need to visit her in Cumbria. Please contact us for more details.
