Although not a greyhound, Bryn was very much a GRACE boy. He welcomed hundreds of hounds into his home and heart. He taught the hounds under Tracy and Gary's care, how to be a dog; not to be afraid and he told them off when they needed to be! Bryn was a one in a one in a million boy. He was loved by everyone at GRACE. He will always be remembered and will remain in all of our hearts forever.

Warren was a really special boy and a bit of a character. Everyone at GRACE loved him. Despite some earlier upheaval, he was shown true love in his wonderful forever home, where he saw out his days and liked to wallow in the pond!
