We’ve been celebrating St. George’s Day at the kennels today, and are feeling rather patriotic! Jo has been telling the greyhounds all about the story of St. George sleighing the dragon, and the hounds were very excited to learn that a beautiful white Greyhound featured alongside a red fire-breathing dragon on the Coat of Arms of Henry VIII of England (1509-1547), in the first part of his reign. All we can say is that the Tudor’s obviously had excellent taste in sight hounds 😉
We don’t have any pure white hounds at the kennels at the moment, nor any called George, but we do have an absolute stunner called King, who is fawn in colour and really does have all the grace and majesty that is so typical of this amazing breed!
King is a super-friendly hound, but is an absolute whopper, with the strength of ten lions 😉 For this reason he would make an excellent companion for someone with the physical ability to handle a large male. Luckily King is young and eager to please so will be a pleasure for his new family to train and spend time with. You can view King’s full profile on our View our Hounds page, and we’d love to hear from you if you could offer King, or one of his friends a loving home this St. George’s Day!
