Below are some pictures of our dogs that have now been happily homed. If you would like a picture of your greyhound on this page, send us a pic & a few words and we will happily put them on!
Greyhounds make fantastic family pets and are so adaptable in settling into a variety of home situations.
You can watch a throw back to the story of 'Chase The Dream' from racing to retirement here. He went on to live with two young children and a cat!
He is just one of many dogs that we have had the pleasure of homing over the years and it's amazing looking back on that video to see just how Clarks Farm has changed since then!
If you would like to find your happily ever after, you can register to adopt today by calling 01621 788315!
He’s very cheeky and loves to play with his toys. He’s very confused and thinks he’s a jack Russel and tries to sit on our little armchair like our little dog does. He’s so happy to see any dogs on his walks. But most importantly he loves to have a chat. Any time, anywhere he’s happy singing you a song or describing his day in detail he’s also really helped with our little dogs fear aggression! She’s calmed down so much and it’s now a joy to take her out and not have to worry. Think that’s the laid back greyhound attitude rubbing off on her.
He was very quiet when he came to us at the end of June but he is now coming out of his shell. He is very gentle, he can take food out of your hand without you noticing...so you have to be on your guard if it’s your food not his! He didn’t know he could sleep on the sofa, or how to climb stairs, or that he was allowed to run for his own enjoyment. Now we take him to a closed paddock and he does zoomies around and around. This week he realised that this is his forever sofa and has been chilling all day. He is now the fastest couch potato in the world. He is still like a sack of potatoes coming down the stairs!
Stella now 13 and a half. Relaxing at Bolton Abbey near where we now live . She was called Swallow before she came to us and had 8 brothers and sisters most of whom were reformed by Clarks. She is very laid back and easy to care for.
He is very laid back and very sweet, he loves having his belly tickled by the children and to cuddle up with his soft toys and when your not looking he likes to sneak in the recycling
River (Mizen Rioga) is a cheeky and michevious girl and very playful and loves her cuddles and her toys. She also loves cheese! She has learnt to sit and down on command when she wants treats. She walks lovely on the lead.
We got Kane (Jimmy Lucky) a month after we brought River home, they were friends from the start and enjoy each others company. Kane was more reserved than River but had a longer racing career than her and took him a few weeks to trust us, he is very loving boy, our gentle giant, he gets so excited for his walks then comes home for a snuggle with us on the sofa. We enjoy the weekend when they get on our bed for a cuddle. We cant imagine life without them.
The Coulon Family
Just to let you know that Susie is settling well. She loves laying on the grass and is now learning to play with her toys. The pleasure she gives me is unbelievable. She is well known by many of my friends and neighbours.
Massive thank you to Dean and the team for giving me such an amazing friend.
A whole month of having Suki has gone past so quickly.
She has really settled in as part of the family, very loving and affectionate with everybody, so doted upon by all the family from age 4 - 84! She has got very acustomed to her home comforts and although she has a lovely large and cosy bed on the floor she often prefers to curl up like a cat on a small armchair with her legs all tucked in, it doesn't look comfortable but she seems to like it! She loves racing around the garden or doing a bit of sunbathing, playing with her toys, and collecting shoes! Favourite walks are in the local wood, where she does an impressive performing circus dog routine, walking backwards up on her hind legs in an attempt to see where the squirrels have gone. She meets lots of other dogs and wants to play with them all, but her favourite friend is another rescue greyhound called Crosby, whom she is always thrilled to see. We have booked to go to Cornwall in the summer so look forward to taking her on the beach and for a paddle.
Thank you for letting us adopt her-we can't imagine not having her around!

Nicki and Daniel
Thank you for helping me to find such a lovely dog as Beauty. She is settling in really well and has even started to get up later! We have no mess indoors so long as I give her a 10 minute evening walk, she is fine with other dogs, children, unusual noises and people. She doesn't even pull to chase cats! Although she has tried to catch a couple of squirrels.
We are so glad to have Barney because he is a real superstar. He is now 18 weeks and getting taller and taller. He is housetrained, loves cuddles and is so much fun! He passed his Puppy Foundation Assessment at the Puppy Socialisation classes we have been taking him to. This means that he can sit, lay down and come when he is called. His favourite place to sleep is the closest spot to the fire even if it means laying across another dog.
Been nearly a year now since Darin came home to live with us and it has been a wonderful year. He has settled in and become a true character in the family. Everybody loves him and would take him home in an instant if given the chance! He has a very playful nature and will do anything for a game of ball! Can't thank you enough for allowing me to give him a forever home. Could never be parted from him, he's my boy always.

This is Ebbie (greyhound) and Alfie (lurcher). I would like Ebbie to be put on the found a home page. Please say she is wonderful and is such a playful, loving and muched loved part of our family now. Thank you to clarks farm for letting us have her. She enriches our lives. We will be back for another friend soon.
Tiffany (who was called Kiwi) has settled brilliantly, with no problems at all. She is a very loving, affectionate, playful and fun dog. She also loves cuddles! We are very lucky to have found you and in doing so, such an amazing dog!
Julia, Charlotte, Grace, Nana and Granddad
We think that Oddball (Benjen) has settled in very well.
Thanks for a good choice.
Helen, John, Alex & Charlotte.
Since coming home with us Norman has settled into his new home very well indeed! He was a little unsure when he first arrived and getting him to settle in the living room was a challenge, but that’s certainly changed and takes some coaxing to go to his other bed at bedtime! Norman has already worked his way deep into our hearts; we simply couldn’t be without him and love him very much. Thank you Clarks Farm for helping us to home such a wonderful character. Christian & Lindsey
Just thought we’d let you know how Droopy Dog is getting on. As you can see she is loving life and making friends. She’s an absolute delight to be around and turns heads wherever she goes. It’s amazing how she has a sixth sense when other “greys” are around and always greets them with a wagging tail. Her favourite place is her bed with her toys or snuggled on the sofa with mummy and daddy. Thank you once again for letting her “choose” us, we are smitten. Lisa and Julian Cutter
Hello everyone, I thought you would just like an update on the old man as it's been a while! I've no doubt you'll be happy to know Gino is doing really well and has overcome his fear of stairs! We often have a warm spot on the bed where he spends most of the day. Somehow I've managed to gain two lady companions for him, who have found the pup within. He's often off lead now on walks and loves a quick sprint or two but always comes back I'm relieved to say. Bridget, Rob and Gino
Thought we would just drop you a mail with news of Oliver, now renamed Broc who we rehomed earlier this year. He is adorable, a real gentle giant and he has settled into life without any problems. He and Poppy get on really well and he is not at all bothered about our chickens. It has taken a bit of time but he now loves a good play and has learnt a few commands....although we haven't needed many as he is very well behaved :-)
Hannah, Gary, Broc and Poppy
