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”

Bridget Jones (Cat Tolerant)

 

Bridget is in foster in the Blue Mountains with 5 other houndies, four cats, chickens, and a duck!

“I’m Bridget and when I arrived to GR I was very skinny and looking shabby not chic…but those days are behind me now. I told my foster mummy that I wanted a bottom the size of Brazil, just like Bridget Jones. Who wants to be a stick insect when you can have a sexy curvaceous toosh? Well I think I got what I was after… I arrived a scrawny 25 kg and am now filled out at 32kg. And I still look like a supermodel!

I’m looking for someone who will love me just the way I am – a little left of centre, goofy, snuggly, and wanting to adore you. I am looking for someone who would spend a lot of time at home, or has a doggy friend to keep me company while you are at work. I wouldn’t want to be a singleton again.  The last thing in the world you want is to come home to me sitting in my onsie rooing along to Jamie O’ Neal’s “All By  Myself.” It may be entertaining for you but I would be very sad!

I get along with cats and small dogs, but other doggies my size I much prefer the gents. If you are Colin Firth (or have the Colin Firth of the canine world) I am yours! Get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Meg

“I’m Meg and my sisters Pearl, Biscuit, and Cookie were all lucky enough to find homes through GR. It’s my turn now! I am quite shy compared to my sisters, and I will need a quiet home with an understanding family to help me become more confident. I am good with small dogs but children can frighten me so I need a home without tiny humans! I prefer to attach myself to the menfolk but if you are very gentle and understanding I can be a friend to the ladyfolk too. I love bellyrubs once I feel relaxed around you and I won’t say no to a snuggle. If you think your house is zen enough for me get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Sammy

“I’m Sammy and just like Sammy Davis Jnr I am quite the entertainer! I am a toe tapping, life loving young hound that can roo with the best of them if you ask me to sing. Nobody’s asked me yet though, I just know I’d be good at it if you did, I’m a great all rounder! I just want to love everybody and be the life of the party. I can be a bit of a comedian too, just ask me. Apparently I need a family that will give me firm boundaries as I am still really just a pup (just say you will, our shenannigans as we make our own Rat Pack will be just between us ok?) I also need somewhere that doesn’t have cats or small dogs, because they do nothing for my image. And I just know I can be the star that shines in your life if you let me! You just gotta let me be me! For more information about me or any of my kennel mates please contact the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Adam

“I’m Adam and me and my friend Amelia arrived together looking  a bit neglected! Thanks to the volunteers at GR I’m now a happy healthy boy and ready for a home. I am  a bit of a dude and think myself quite the first man about town (well, so was my namesake after all!), and looking for my very own Eden. The paradise I have in mind has a couch, room for me to explore and have a zoomie or two, no cats or small dogs, lots of yummy breakfasts and dinners… ummmm….. Oh yes – I nearly forgot the humans! I would really like a human or two to keep me company, give me lots of pats and cuddles and take me for walks. I’m not too fussy about the cooking skills, as long as its food. I love food. Lots of it, to make up for the times when I didn’t have much. So if you think your house is a slice of Eden and your larder is full, get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Harmony

“I’m Harmony, and me and my friend Melody came to GR a very sorry looking pair. We were thin from spending quite a long time lost in the bush, and wondering where our next meal would come from, before we were found and handed in to Hawkesbury Pound. The good folk there knew just the right number to call and I cannot believe how much our lives have changed. I have put on weight and got rid of all the nasty worms that were making me so sick, and I’m surrounded by the volunteers who spend time with me and let me know that I am loved. While Melody has gone into foster care I am still looking for my foster or forever home, where I am sure I will live with you most harmoniously as I am now a happy playful girl ready to begin the next stanza of my life! I am best suited to a home without cats or small dogs, but if the right boy my size came a long I’m sure we could begin a duet! For more information or to meet me please contact the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Sharlotte

Sharlotte is sponsored by Liz!

Sharlotte is in foster with Bronwyn and family, and this is what her foster family has to say about her:

“Sharlotte is a sweet, funny, goofy, tiny greyhound girl, who claimed our couch and has called it home for the past few months.  She is great with children and her foster brother greyhound, but would not suite a home with cats or small fluffy dogs.  She would definitely suit a home where the owner is home a lot. She socialises very well with medium to large dogs, and would benefit from another dog to keep her company.

She sleeps through the night (7.30pm to 7am) and is toilet trained.  She came to us very unsure of stairs, and is slowly starting to master them.  She is VERY food oriented, so quite easy to train, and walks well on the lead. She also has been recalling very well at the dog park!

She is honestly such a pleasure.  Her tail wags, and her eyes light up whenever you walk near her.  She just wants a neck scratch and someone to sit with, and she is definitely ready to find her own forever family.”

Jack

Jack is being sponsored by Lee Barry. Thank you !

My name is Jack and I am a professional snuggler. OK, maybe not professional, there isn’t a diploma for that, but if there were I would pass with honours. I am looking for someone who needs LOTS of cuddles. I am very good with other doggies big or small as I am very well socialized and I have lived with lots of other dogs during my time in foster care.  Kiddos over 5 are ok, I have lived with them for a little while too. The only thing I don’t really appreciate is cats…but we all have our likes and dislikes don’t we? I would suit someone who is home a lot or somewhere I would have other doggy company as I really don’t like being by myself. It makes me sad when there is no one to hug!I am ever so friendly and just want to be in my forever home so I can spend my life loving you and making you feel like the most important person in the universe. If you think you need someone to do that then I am the doggy for YOU!”

“I’m Pebbles and I’m a small black girl looking for a home. I’d like to ride with a family down the street, or just have some fun walking on our feet.  I’m very friendly, curious, and can’t wait to meet you! I’ll sit here and wait and dream of all the (yabba dabba do) good times we are going to have,  and I’ll be here when you’re ready. There are lots of houndies waiting for homes at GR, if you would like to find out more about adopting or fostering any of us contact the volunteers info@geryhoundrescue.com.au”
