Pet of the Week – Bruiser

Hi, I’m Bruiser! With a name like mine, you might think I’m an all round-tough guy. Really, I’m just using it for my image. Don’t tell anyone, but I’m really just a big softie that loves a scratch and a cuddle and will follow you around everywhere… you know, for protection… or really just because it might mean I get an extra cuddle or two. Shhh! It’s our little secret, right? I’m also good with other dogs as long as they’re calm, cool and collected.

Help bring Christmas cheer to our kennel kids!

Our good friends at Give a Dog a Bone are once again supporting Greyhound Rescue with their Christmas Appeal. Their Appeal runs from 25 November – 15 December and provides toys, treats and food to all the dogs and cats in Rescue Services on Christmas day – no one wants to wake up to an empty stocking on Christmas morning and you can help be part of the solution for these animals.

How can you help?

Helping our hounds to have a fab Christmas is easy! All you need to do is put 1 item – toy, treat or food in your shopping basket and take it to one of the Drop off Points listed on their website.

All items are delivered in time for Christmas day to the following Animal Rescue and Community Services, including Greyhound Rescue.

Smokey

Hi there, I’m Smokey and I have the cutest little ‘origami’ ears ever! Well, they just seem to have a life of their own, so I like to keep them neatly folded so they stay in place. I’m mad about toys and will play games with you over and over if you let me –  and then some! So when I arrive at your place, make sure you’re well stocked. So far, I’ve been good with the other hounds I’ve met at Greyhound Rescue HQ, so if you’ve maybe got a furry brother or sister for me, I’d love to meet them!

Boris

Hello! I’m Boris. I like to consider myself quite the gourmet – my major talent is stealing sniffing out any kind of food, and I’d love it if you let me take on the job of ‘chief taste tester’ in my new home. Well, at the very least we could snuggle on the couch and watch the Master Chef together! I’m a friendly and sociable boy who is pretty good with other dogs. If you’ve got any brothers and sisters for me, I’d love to meet them first.

Jazzy (cat tolerant)

Hi, I’m Jazzy and I’m as smooth and laid back as anything you’ll hear on Smooth FM (hey – no judgement!). I am friendly with other dogs, good with kids, birds, and even cats! I’m really just that chilled out. If you give me a neck scratch I’m all yours, and if you give me a teddy, I’ll be your friend forever. I’m great on the lead too, just a calm and super relaxed dog that would suit all kind of homes.

Kaylee

I’m Kaylee, and although I’m heading towards my senior years I am the sweetest hound you could ever meet, so please don’t pass me by! I mean, just look at my smile… surely that’s enough to win you over right now. I’m a happy, sweet girl who’s very much into hanging out with cuddles, uh, I mean people. I also consider myself a bit of a toy connoisseur so I’m looking forward to having a family that can help me add to my toy collection. I’m happy to be around all of the other greyhounds I’ve met so far, so I’m happy to meet any potential fur siblings you have for me!

Megs

Megs was named in memory of Megs Northey, whose time with us was too fleeting.

“Hi there, I’m Megs and I’m 9 years young. Don’t let my little bit of grey around my muzzle worry you, I’ve still got plenty of zoomies left in me! Besides, I think I’m ageing fabulously – you wouldn’t think I was a day over 6! I’m a sweet and affectionate girl who’s still keen to be for a good play and social time with the other doggies I’ve met but that doesn’t mean I don’t like my quiet time… I’d love a home where I can join you on gentle short strolls and snuggle in for a long afternoon nap.”

A dog for Christmas?

We’ve all seen those cute photos on Instagram of adorable puppies wearing a big bow and sitting under the Christmas tree. But is getting a dog for Christmas a good idea? Yes and no! While you should NEVER get a dog as a gift without consulting the recipient, the Christmas break can be the perfect time to welcome a new dog. Read More »

Bella

Ciao, I’m Bella! They say that good things come in small packages – and I’m definitely one of those! I’m a petite and friendly girl, though I can be a little bit shy and timid when I first meet new people, but once I get to know you I’m lots of fun. I love to play and I am one pocket rocket when I do a zoomie! When I’m worn out from all that playing, I am more than happy to lounge around on my daybed and keep an eye on what everyone else is up to. If you have a fur-sibling for me, that’s OK too, I’m greyt with other dogs – it might even help me be a more confident doggo!

Cookie (on trial)

Hi, my name is Cookie, that’s because I’m petite and very, very sweet. With my smokey eye and sophistication beyond my years, you might think I’ve stepped off the pages of Dogue, but the hustle and bustle of the model life isn’t for me. Of course, if you want to get me a few fashion accessories for me, I wouldn’t object! I’m a very quiet, calm girl that’s looking for a home where I can just lap up all the attention and cuddles you have to give. Of course, I might n if you want to throw in a few fashion accessories, that’s fine by me too! Oh, did I mention my manners? I walk well on lead and I’m sociable and friendly with other dogs that I meet.

Volunteer of the Month – December

We’d like to introduce you to Lex, one of our dedicated volunteers who we are recognising as our ‘Volunteer of the Month’ for the month of December.

Our volunteers are the very backbone of what we do at GR. Without them, we could not possibly save and rehome as many greyhounds as we do. While every single one of our volunteers is important no matter how much they do whether hands-on on with the dogs or behind the scenes, every month we are introducing just one of them to you and acknowledging their amazing efforts. These volunteers have demonstrated exceptional passion, commitment, reliability, and cooperation to make GR what it is, and we thank them tremendously.

We had a chat to Lex to learn more about why she loves volunteering with Greyhound Rescue…
