Battersea Greyhounds just want a quiet life


These Battersea Dogs & Cats Home residents are content to spend their day snoozing away on a pile of pillows or snuggled beneath a blanket. They emerge only for a short burst of exercise before flopping back down to take a well-earned nap.

No, we’re not talking about our cats. Meet Battersea’s real couch potatoes: our gorgeous Greyhounds.

Each year, dozens of ex-racers come into Battersea in search of a home. Having spent their entire lives on the racing tracks, all they want is a bit of love – and some space to chill out.

Sally the Greyhound

When given the choice between a snooze and a full-on workout Sally heads straight for the duvets. During her 75 days at Battersea, this three-year-old has witnessed her friends head off with their new families. Having decided that enough is enough, Sally and her friends and fellow Greyhounds, four-year-old Joe and one-year-old Snowdrop, occupied the sofa room at Battersea to show the world what they are all about – rest and relaxation.
