Joy Battley the manager of Barley Kennels in Waltham Abbey takes us on a tour of one of the UK's largest greyhound rehoming centre. Joy took in all the racing dogs that couldn't be found homes after the closure of the iconic Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium in August 2008 - that still to this day lies empty and undeveloped.
Joy has been a devotee of the breed for much of her life and as well as having several of the dogs for pets, she continues to race and show a small number. She also keenly disputes the bad reputation that has sometimes been associated with the sporting side of keeping greyhounds putting it down to a few bad apples. All of the trainers she knows love their dogs and wouldn't dream of destroying them.
