Joey – ‘Pet of the Week’

Joey is sponsored by Lisa.

“I’m Joey and I love to jump and zoom down the runs at the kennels. I’m very friendly and playful with other dogs medium to large sized but cats and small dogs just aren’t my bag baby! I am very good on the lead, and I’m looking for a family that will let me demonstrate my good looks by modelling an array of doggy fashions and letting me practice my posing skills – I do my own version of “Blue Steel” called “Woe Face” and I’m very good at it. I’ve been practising on those volunteers who all fall for are charmed by my good looks and I get lots of pats and cuddles, which I  adore, but I need an a new audience! The problem is, not everyone wants a big blue boy like me, even with my good looks, which makes me very sad. I may not even have to practice my Woe Face soon if someone doesn’t adopt me…wait, you say you like boys? Well what are you waiting for? Come and get me! You’ll just need to get in touch with the volunteers first, info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Milton

Milton is kindly sponsored by Carly.

My name is Milton and I found myself at the pound with my doggy friend through no my fault of my own. My friend and I were unfortunately separated and because I am so young I feel very lost without her! Lucky for me the kind folk at GR are looking after me at kennels, but this is no place for a young dog with a life ahead of him like me. Unfortunately I can’t cope on my own and I get quite distressed so it is very important that I have a friend and someone who is home quite a lot. Think of all the things that can’t go by themselves, I’m just like one of them, looking for my perfect partner…like a lock and key, paper and pen,  cheese and crackers….mmmmm….crackers…. oops. I got a bit distracted there! I quite like food too. Do you like food? Maybe we can have some dinner dates?

I am very playful, excellent with kiddies,but not so good with cats and some smaller dogs. I will need somebody who has experience with bigger dogs that is willing to love me so I can love them back and even more!

Greyhound Rescue Online Stores

We are always looking for ways to fundraise at GR and so we have just opened another online store where you can purchase our GR bandannas specifically for houndies. These bandannas were designed and printed by our volunteers and supporters and are designed to educate the public about the hound wearing it. We have Adopt Me ones for our foster carers to show off on their foster kids, the Muzzle Is For the Law Not For Me for those houndies that have not yet had their greenhound test, and I’ve Been Saved for any of your rescued dogbabies. We also have some plain ones, and more products will be added in the coming weeks and months, so check back often!

Go to www.greyhoundrescue.bigcartel.com to take a look and support us. Along with our existing Redbubble store, we hope to raise funds from these sales that will go back to our work – looking after the greyhounds in our care. Every little bit counts whether it be from the generosity of our sponsors and supporters who donate to us, our stalls, auctions, and  online stores like these. Thankyou so much to everyone who supports us, your generosity is amazing!

Josh

Josh is kindly sponsored by Mali !

Josh arrived with Oscar, Polly and Zorro who have since all found homes and Josh still patiently waits! this boy has been on our books for quite some time and through no fault of his own hasn’t found his niche in the world. He is a very special boy who would be best suited to a home as an only dog without any small fluffies, and someone who would be able to spend a lot of time with him. He is very personable and attaches to “his” human very readily – he just wants to be loved so badly!

Dee who fostered Josh says the following about him:

“Joshy is a dog with soooo much personality! He makes me laugh every day with his antics – the world is a joyous place for Joshy and his curiosity knows no bounds. He is extremely respectful of people and food motivated, which means training is a breeze. In just one week he was house-trained, learned to wait before coming inside, mastered the stairs, learn not to steal food from the kitchen bench, stopped stealing the teddy bear fridge magnet from the fridge and stopped drinking out of the loo – what a clever boy! Best of all, he sleeps through the night without a peep. He is a big, gorgeous looking boy – the photos don’t do him justice. He acts more like a two year old!”

Please email info@greyhoundrescue.com.au if you think you could open your heart and home to this beautiful boy!

Jillian

“They say that good things come in small packages – my name is Jillian and I am definitely one of those! You see, because I am such a small girl I have to make myself heard to all the other bigger greyhounds, and the volunteers or else I might be missed! It’s not my fault I am petite! You know, everyone always assumes greyhounds are all big dogs, but that isn’t true at all. We come in all sorts of sizes….well…generally…sometimes? OK, so there is a normal greyhound size range, and I may not fit in a handbag like a Chihuahua but who would want one of those when you could have little old me anyway? I’m lots of fun,  I love to play and I am one pocket rocket when I do a zoomie. But when I’m worn out with all my toys and all of that I am more than happy to lounge around on my day bed and keep an eye on what the volunteers are doing! If I sound like your kinda gal get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Norm

“Hi I’m Norm. Do you know why I think they called me Norm? Because I’m not just any norm I am that infamous “The Norm” that everyone keeps talking about. Why you ask? Well, a normal (er, that is a norm greyhound) does little else other than sleep. And sleep. And sleep some more. And get up for a zoomie, a snack, and then it’s back to bed to recover. Everything is just too much effort for a greyhound, despite what you may see when we’ve had to run around a track. Nobody understands that we don’t run all day! We hardly run at all! We’re sprinters, not marathon runners. So that is why I am The Norm. Because I’m the epitome of greyhound normal! The perfect example! I really don’t bother getting up much at all. In fact, my favourite song is “The Lazy Song” by Bruno Mars. You know, the one that goes “Today I don’t fell like doing anything… I just wanna lay in my bed…” I’d sing it all to you but I’m really overdue for my snooze…..zzzzzzzzzzz”  If you would like to experience this for yourself get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au and The Norm could be your perfect match!

Hadley

“I’m Hadley and I bet you wish you had me! I’m not only laid back and extremely good looking but I’m also very good at ensuring the couch doesn’t fly away. This is a very important job, best given to a big boy like me who will make sure the job is done right. Think of all those poor people that don’t have houndies to stop their lounges flying away – wait, are you one of them? You need me! I need you! Get in touch with my people and let’s make a deal! I’ll lie on your couch and you can pay me in good dinners and snuggles in the evening. Sounds good? Terrific! Get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Huckleberry

“My name’s Huckleberry and I am one of the coolest houndies you will ever meet. I hear there is a story called the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn but I would like to write my own book called the Adventures of Huckleberry Greyhound. What I need is someone to help me write that story, and maybe we could even try some adventuring too. You don’t have to be a Mark Twain, just someone who wants to enjoy exploring everything life has to offer! I’m only young after all and there is lots to see and do and people to meet. I’ve already had one adventure at the pound and I didn’t like that very much, I’m sure there are much more fun places to be! I’ll just sit her e a little bit and spend some time with volunteers at GR and when you’re ready to go adventuring you come find me. Wait…did you say you’re ready? What are you waiting for, let’s go!

Seamus

“Hello there me name’s Seamus and I’m a charming redhead with a twinkle in me eye and a nose for the finer things in life. I’m lookin’ for a ma or pa who would like the luck o’ the Irish in their home and enjoy the odd gallivant around town- mayhap you could take me out when you pop out to pick up the Guiness? I promise I won’t be much trouble – just give me a comfy place to kip and a bowl of Irish stew now and then (no cooked bones please) and I’ll be the happiest lad around! I can’t promise I’ll roo or bark with an Irish lilt but I promise I’m cuter than Jonathan Rhys Meyers and funnier than Dylan Moran! If you would like to meet a handsome laddie like meself get in touch with those volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Banana

“Hi I’m Banana and all my life so far I’ve thought the grass is always greener on the other side! I’ve been looking longingly past my gate just busting to get out towards that horizon and find a family to love me. Up to the present all my attempts to have an adventure and find the love of my life have been thwarted. Lucky for me GR is going to do the finding for me now. All I want is a nice quiet spot with a (banana) lounge, someone to take me for walks and let me snuggle into their lap. If you like the sound of lying somewhere on a banana lounge sipping a banana daiquiri with the doggy love of your life by your side then I might be the hound for you! It might help if you really like bananas. Are you Bananaman? You are?! Well get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au
