Interested in homing a greyhound?

Here at Castledon we spend time getting to know our dogs' personalities, likes and dislikes and want to place them in the right home, first time around.

We always arrange to come and meet you and do your home check before you come to the kennels to meet the dogs....


Once we have carried out your homecheck and met you and your family, we will know which dogs we currently have that will be suitable for you and your circumstances.

This way, when you come to the kennels to meet the dogs you will only meet the selected dogs that will be suitable for you, rather than you seeing/picking a dog that is totally unsuitable for your circumstances.


Homechecks will always be done by Jodie and Sandra as they are very experienced in matching your lifestyle to the character and needs of the dogs that we have in our care.

They will also be able to answer any questions that you may have about life with a greyhound.


If everything is OK with your homecheck, you will be invited to the kennels to meet and spend time with the selected dogs.

We can take you to the local park so that you can walk them away from the kennels.  

This way, you are more likely to see their true character unfold - quite often the over-enthusiastic, bouncy dog that greets you at the kennels is gentle and calm when away from the kennel environment.


If you'd rather not come to the kennels (-we quite understand that some people find it upsetting to do so) we can arrange to bring the suitable dogs to meet you in your home, once we've done your homecheck.


Our dogs are all very special to us and we want to be sure that we place them in their 'forever' home first time around.

We find that working this way is best for the dogs and also best for you to find the right dog for you and your family.



All our dogs are vaccinated, flea treated, wormed and neutered prior to being placed in a home.


If you do become the proud owner of a Castledon greyhound (or two!) you can be assured that we are always on hand to give you as much support and advice as you need.


We love to receive pictures and updates of our ex-residents enjoying their new lives as much loved pets.


*If for any reason you are no longer able to care for your adopted Castledon greyhound, then the dog MUST be returned to us*


We hope that you enjoy looking at our website and will consider adopting a Castledon Greyhound!
