    Hi Jackie, it may have only been a short period of time, but we want to thank you for matching us up with Clover, she may have been a nervous girl when we met her, but she is now a very happy hound attending obedience classes, and continues to improve each and every class

    So thank you again x

    Hi Jackie, Teasle is doing really well! We've got to know her foibles she's been clean in house since I can't remember when, she obviously has us well trained! We've started to let her off the lead over the last week, and with patience and treats her recall is good. She goes off for a good run and a rumage and then comes thundering along to find you. So far we've just been letting her off in the Rising Sun park, as she's really familiar with it. No issues with other dogs at all, she's well mannered and respectful. Her food fiendness has lessened I think, it is possible to rememeber you've left something on the bench, before it's been wolfed up,now.
    She's a joy to have around, and gets lots of admimration when we're out and about.
    She and Clover have begun to really bond and its lovely to see them running about together. Although Clover's been kept on the lead this week as we took your advice into account and had her spayed last week.
    All in all, we are all very happy, to have Teasle she's been a lovely addition to the family.

    We have unwittingly re-homed a fox hound/Irish trail hound,after previously rescuing a border collie who sadly had to be put to sleep at the age of 16. We were ready to give another rescue dog a home for life, we went for a small female collie, and fell in love at first sight with Alvie now Sam.He was described as a Beagle crossed Harrier hound but as we have extensively researched into hounds we now believe that was wrong.We have fallen in love with the lovely temperment and grace of these dogs. Sam is about 17 months old and has been returned after being re-homed for five months.We are trying our hardest with dog training and a lot of work and patience which we are seeing a lot of improvement in his manners and behaviour, however he is the biggest food fiend ever, and he can reach places I didn't think were possible but he has this super extendable neck.I have loved your website and we dog train at Dig it in Sandbach so hopefully we will be able to help and contribute at your next fundraiser.
    Keep up the good work and the education needed to have these dogs in your life and home!!!

    Hi Jackie I read about your rescue on the Wetnose column in Dog Worls. Well Done on setting this up for Foxhounds, it has long been needed. We had several in recently, all bar one were claimed and we were lucky enough to find him a good home with a lady who already had one. She will be interested to learn of your group.
    BTW just one query...."expectities"?? You must be like us, updating the website at 1am with coffee shots to stay awake!!All the best with your rescue, we will be in touch again I am sure when a hound needs help.

    Hey Jackie,

    Fantastic website!!! We cant thank you enough for all the hard work, dedication and most importantly love you show for this breed. Even over here in Australia, we can see how loved your pack are and how much work you put into the rescue guys.
    For those who are in England - please consider a foxhound. Your life will never be the same - the love and laughter that these guys provide will fill your heart as they will become a loved member of your family.
    Please remember they are a working dog - they need regular exercise but they will repay you four fold in love and will love sharing the couch with you later.
    Keep up the great work Jackie!

    Lisa, Damien, Jack, Ruger, Remi and Harley

    A very Merry Christmas to you and your pack. I do so appreciate your concern for animals. Thanks for the encouragement you have given to me with Daphne. She is turning out to be a real sweetheart. I hate to think of last winter with her sleeping out in the woods under the trees. She (Lord willing) will truly have a better year ahead.

    And a very Happy Christmas to you and all your hounds too.
    Thanks again for helping the six hounds at the beginning of this year. Shame that two of them didn’t make it but all six were lucky to have found you when they did.
    You are a star!

    Hi Jackie

    Just a quick note to thank you for pairing us with Bradford. He has certainly had his moments but with your help and support we have overcome the obsticles associated with a nervous/mistreated dog. We have got to know him over the past 5 motnhs and are very very happy with him. Deep down he is a big lazy bones!! But Barnie the border collie keeps him on his toes. His favourite place is in front of the fire, the hotter the better!!! he is also partial to pulling down any clothing hung on radiators and curling up into a tiny ball on top of them. We would not be without him now. If we had the space I would have a whole pack of hounds. I would urge anybody interested in owning a hound to listen to Jackie and understand the breed with this as a basis you cant go wrong. Keep up the good work, If ever you have a dog that needs emergency care in our area just let us know and we will try to help all we can. Or if you are passing and fancy a drink. Best wishes for a lovely christmas with the lucky hounds with you now xxx

    We have 3 foxhounds - all of whom we have adopted from the Dogs Trust.

    The 2 eldest ones are from a pack - the bitch is still very nervous & has obviously been abused & the male is just happy to have a loving home. Both dogs have settled in well & are very loving. Our 3rd foxhound is still young (3 yrs old) and has spent half of his life at the Dogs Trust. The youngster has settled in very well.
    I would recommend Foxhounds as pets - It may take a bit of time for them to settle into a home environment but once they do, you'll have a loyal, loving friend for life.

    Congratulations on the new site and hope you will have great success in rehoming the hounds. I have a rescue hound myself from the Limerick Animal Welfare here in Ireland. Henry is my boy.

    Well done on all your hard work with rescues. This is a good site, and I hope you find trustworthy people to home the hounds you have. I know how hard it is. Good Luck with the bungee jump.
