Greyhounds are a dog breed known for their fast speeds when racing and for their skills of sight in hunting. 

But retired dogs can make a loving family pet – and some are in need of rehoming here in Suffolk.

Here are some of the greyhounds available at Greyhound Trust Suffolk and Mildenhall Greyhound Trust.

Gus is a real character with "amazing" multi-directional ears, the trust said.

Gus can be a little exuberant when he first comes out of his kennel but that is due to excitement.
