Rescue charity hosts greyhound show

Section:  Annan and Eskdale, Dumfries and West, Lockerbie and Lochmaben, Moffat  | Tags: , , ,

THERE were greyhounds galore at Lockerbie Town Hall on Sunday — all in a good cause.

SHOWTIME . . . Colin Donaldson, organiser Graham Hill and Helen Kerry

 

It was the annual Dog Show and Table Top Sale in aid of Dumfriesshire and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue.

There were more than 50 ex-racers taking part in a variety of classes with seven homeless hounds also on view to any potential adopters.

The judge for the day was Nairn Riddick from Dumfries, who, stated the organisers, was impressed by greyhounds’ quiet nature and was a convert to the breed.

His choice for Champion of Champion was Alfie from Dumfries, owned by Susie and Colin Donaldson, and reserve champion Teighan, owned by Sheila McCullough from Edinburgh, and exhibited by her friend Marion.

Arthur Robinson, president and a founder of Dumfriesshire and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue, said: “We had an excellent show in what again proved a terrific venue. It was a great shop window for the work of the charity.”

He added that the show also proved an effective fundraiser making more than £2000 for the charity’s work in providing a future in good homes for unwanted greyhounds whose racing career was at an end.
