Cats & Dogs Collection
A handmade greyhound pendant that makes a difference: £20 of each sale will be donated to Galgos del Sol, a non for profit organisation committed to rescuing and rehoming hounds.
This finely detailed greyhound necklace features a hand-carved greyhound charm, with a graceful, sleek body and friendly, alert face. We wanted to capture the dog in a ‘happy’ running pose, rather than in ‘racing’ position, because we strongly oppose dog racing and hunting.
Every year over a thousand young and healthy greyhounds are put to sleep if they lack winning potential, or can no longer compete. This is often due to the terrible injuries that racing greyhounds sustain on the track. Galgos, Spanish bred hunting greyhounds, are an ancient type of dog that were bred by Spanish nobles historically. Unfortunately, they are now one of the world’s most abused dog breeds, with tens of thousands killed each year in Spain. You can read more about their plight and how to help here.
An ideal greyhound gift for any greyhound, lurcher, whippet or sighthound owner, this elegant necklace is also a great choice for any dog lover passionate about animal welfare. Buying this piece means not only will you have a beautiful silver greyhound necklace to wear and cherish, you’ll also be making a positive difference to a dog’s life, thanks to the charitable donation.
Available in your choice of sterling silver or 22ct vermeil gold. We can also make this piece in solid gold, in a range of carats – just the thing if you’ve got your heart set on a gleaming gold greyhound pendant. If you’d like to commemorate a family pet, remember we have an engraving option and can inscribe your necklace for you with up to three characters. Simply use the drop-down menus to make your selection.
