Lovestruck greyhounds are searching for a new home together after meeting in the kennels of rescue charity Forever Hounds Trust.

Volunteers at Forever Hounds Trust realised that Mel and Freddy, who met at the kennel, were getting on very well when they were in each other's company. So staff decided to place them in a larger kennel so that they could be together permanently.

It has worked so well that Mel and Freddy are now looking for a forever home together, where they can be with each other for the rest of their lives.

“Mel and Freddy are a wonderful pair of dogs and they are so happy together that we don’t want to separate them. Freddy is the quieter of the two but his confidence grows when he is with his friend Mel. He loves a game of tug or to play with a squeaky toy, and Mel is happy to play with him. Mel also likes to chill out, and Freddy is happy to lie alongside her and relax.

"As these gorgeous greyhounds are happy in each other’s company, they can be left for periods of time on their own, which may make it easier for a new owner. Both dogs are happy and enjoy interacting with humans as well as playing together, and they will clearly make wonderful pets for someone.

“Whoever offers their home and heart to these lovely hounds will be in for a real treat. They are going to make amazing pets and will bring joy to the home they go into.”

– Lisa Webb, volunteer at Forever Hounds Trust
