LAUREN’S LEGACY

Lauren Elise Hutchins was born on 29th October 1993. She was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at 3 months. She led a fairly normal life until her early teens when her health declined rapidly. In 2014 Lauren was told that she needed a liver transplant as well as a lung transplant.
Lauren loved dogs and fell in love with the grace and beauty of greyhounds. She had a cocker spaniel but dreamed to have her own greyhound called Peaches. She found greyhounds therapeutic and helped relax her breathing. Unfortunately Lauren died on 2nd July 2015 aged 21.

WHAT IS LAUREN’S LEGACY?

In March 2014. Lauren’s mother and sister Sophie went to Crufts (Lauren was too sick to come). They visited the Greyhound Trust stand and bought a little greyhound for Lauren. She was thrilled and called her Peaches.

After Lauren’s death her friends decided that Peaches should travel with them on their gap years and holidays and that way part of Lauren would share their adventures. She has been to Thailand ,Kenya, Iceland, Italy, Greece, France and Lapland. A website dedicated to Lauren, and the adventures of Peaches can be found here.

LAUREN’S KENNEL AT HALL GREEN

We realised that Lauren Loved Greyhounds so much but never had the opportunity to have one. It was our pleasure to dedicate a kennel in her name telling the story of each greyhound that stays in that kennel, thus giving an everlasting memory to her.

WHO IS CURRENTLY IN LAUREN’S KENNEL?

PADDY

Paddy is a soft and lovely black beauty who loves lots of fuss and gives lots of affection in return. He is a long stayer with us, probably because he is quite a strong lad when out on the lead, and sometimes forthright towards some other breeds but very sociable with his humans.

If you are an experienced owner with patience and understanding to help Paddy by doing some training and socialisation with him he will reward you with his love, devotion, and companionship til the end of his days. What more can anyone ask.

We really would like Paddy to be loved as someone’s pet rather than remaining in kennels, so please give us a ring on 0121 426 4810 or contact us to come along to our Broadmarsh Kennels near Stourbridge to give this lovely boy a chance.
