VIKKI – (named for racing as) Dependable Lady
Vikki came into the care of AFG in December 2008 when her young owner/trainer (who thought it would be a fun hobby to own and race greyhounds) soon realised it wasn’t and decided to no longer have any more involvement with the greyhound racing industry.
Wishing to seek his fortune abroad after securing the future welfare and security of his 3 greyhound girls, he sought the help of AFG after being very disappointed with the local rescue schemes affiliated to the industry.
After being let down by a local independent rescue who promised to take Vikki, she was signed over to the care of AFG.
After nearly a year in her wonderful foster home Vikki was homed with a rescued lurcher but after 1 year and 3 months the family’s circumstances changed and AFG had to take Vikki back.
After a short time in another foster home with 2 little rescued terriers, Vikki found her forever home May 2011 with Cathy and Michael and little rescued poodle/cross, Spike.
All is one big adventure for dear Vikki as she is such a friendly confident girl.
