Pet of the Week – Dino

Dino is kindly sponsored by Dimity, Tonia, Samantha, Shona, Michelle, Greg & Jeannine.

Hi I’m Dino and I’m one big hunk o’spunk. Yes I’m big but I’m tall dark and handsome too, so that means there is just more of me to love! Despite my size, I am very good on the lead, I just bumble along at your side until something more interesting happens. I love to play but because I’m a bigger boy I would be better with older children, I just can’t help being a bit of a klutz! I’m looking forward to a family that will snuggle with me on the lounge so the couch doesn’t fly away – is that you? Read More »

Marshall

I’m Marshall, and I’m a friendly, fun loving guy. I mean, just look at my goofy big smile! Surely that’s enough to win you over right now. What I’d really love is a comfy bed to call my own and someone to take me out on walks – that’s when I really smile! I’m okay with other dogs but I definitely prefer the company of ladies.

If you think you have room in your home, or a spot on your couch for a cuddly goof like me contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Chloe

Chloe is kindly sponsored by Kristy, Shaynna and the beautiful Meg memorial team at Inked Australia.

I’m Chloe and I’m what you might call a pocket rocket. Even though I’m teeny tiny, what I lack in size, I make up for in personality! I’m a fun loving gal who loves to get out and about and would love a home with loads of toys to play with and maybe a backyard to stretch my legs or do a zoomie or two. I am sociable with other dogs closer to my own size, but those smaller fluffy ones and cats just aren’t my thing.

If you’re looking for a furry friend with a zest for life then contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au
