Fred – Pet of the “Golden Oldie” Week

Fred is one of our older hounds seeking a home. He is currently in foster with Agnes.

“Fred is a jewel it will be very hard for us to see him go away when he is adopted. We have a special bond. He is a mysterious soul and he has unpredictable moments… It makes him even more special to me. He can be puppy one minute, then a respected gentleman, and then an over protective friend.

He loves being close to you and enjoys being pet as much as he is also independent.

Paradox Fred a bit more complex than most dogs I have known. He is my shadow and comes with me at the gallery enjoying the visitors but waiting for them to come to him rather that welcoming them. Art fits with him because he is unique like what we have at the gallery.

I am so glad he came into our life.”

Fred is kid friendly, great with other dogs and is excellent on the lead. It is hard to believe this boy so full of life is a senior!

Fred is:

  • 9 years old
  • Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • Located in Sydney
  • Not cat friendly
  • Adoption cost: $350

Ned

“I’m Ned and I’m a handsome blue fawn boy that just wants to bust outta here and have fun! I’m a bit of a larrikin, and I’ve heard whispers that I must have been named after Ned Kelly for my love of roguish capers. Surely my million dollar smile will convince you I’m just a bit of a lad looking for my perfect match and I just need someone to make sure I don’t get into too much mischief. On the other hand, if you’re somebody looking for shenanigans I would be very happy to be your sidekick! Young kiddies get me a bit too excited, so I would be best in a home with teenagers or just adults. I suppose not everybody would be interested in me, so many people have those little humans around…wait, did you say you don’t have any? Quick, get in touch with the volunteers and bust me outta here so we can go have some fun!”

Ned is:

  • DOB 26.1.12

  • Located in Sydney
  • Adoption cost $350
  • Children: Over 12 only

Bruno

“Hi I’m Bruno and I love to zip around the yard playing with my new toys! The volunteers have been teaching me to play catch and I can’t believe that I’ve been missing out on! I might be big and black, but please don’t hold that against me, I’m a very good boy with plenty of personality, I just need somebody to want to get to know me. Just maybe, if you like a game of backyard cricket, I could be your fielder? I hear that some families like to do that – are you one of them? You are?! Well get in touch with my manager…I mean the volunteers! I could be the next sports hero lying on the couch at your place! Contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Titus

Titus is kindly sponsored by Jade.

 

“Hi I’m Titus and I’m named after a Roman Emperor doncha know… my nose would make a pretty good profile on a coin if I do say so myself! I’m only a baby still –  energetic, fun loving, and playful – but true to my breed I’m pretty nifty at lounging around as well. What I need is somebody in search of adventure – I like looking for buried treasure in the runs and if I had my way I’d be out looking around a whole lot more. The trouble is, I’m in this pesky place called kennels. I’m very grateful to GR for saving me, and I love all the volunteers, but I would really like to get out. Kennels are no place for a young boy like me to finish growing up in. I would probably be better with kiddies over 10 as I am quite a solid boy, but I would work very hard to please you.”

If you would like more info on Titus or any of our patiently waiting hounds then please contact us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Titus is:

  • Approx 17 months old (DOB TBC)
  • Desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested and treated
  • Located in Sydney

Foxie

Foxie is kindly sponsored by Zoe.

 

“I’m Foxie and I am a silver foxy lady! I may be 9, but that doesn’t mean I don’t deserve to have a couch somewhere and enjoy the good life. the problem is, everybody wants all the young houndies with the pretty coats, they don’t want the black ladies like me with silver in my fur. If they just took the time to get to know me they would find I am the gentlest lady and have a loving soul, I just need a family to give my love to. I promise I won’t be much trouble, I’m a  sanctuary dog being a golden oldie so my vet bills are covered for the rest of my life. If you could take me for a walk or two, and a run occasionally (I still like a good zoom!) spoil me a bit with some soft teddy bears to snuggle into when your lap isn’t available, and just love me for who I am you won’t be sorry!”

If you are interested in finding out more about Foxie please get in touch, kennels are no place for this lady and we would love to get her onto a foster or permanent couch ASAP. info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Foxie is:

  • 9 years old
  • desexed, microchipped, heartworm tested and treated

Tess

 

“I’m Tess, and although I am 9 I have plenty of love to give! I might have had some life experience but that just means I’m much more settled than those young whipper snappers. What I’m looking for is somebody that doesn’t mind a bit of grey in my fur, and wants to relax by my side and enjoy the good things in life. I still have plenty of spark and enjoy a good run, but I want to enjoy my retirement! I hear that being retired is a pretty good caper, doing what you want when you want, and napping when it suits. The problem is, a golden oldie sanctuary dog like me doesn’t get a lot of offers. I might not have a lot of quantity time left to give you but I promise it will be quality, and that’s what counts. If you think you could just possibly let me into your heart and home please get in touch with the volunteers, kennels are no place for a lady like me!”

Annie

Annie is in foster with Kimberley and family:
Annie is:
  • 5 years old DOB TBC
  • Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • Located in Sydney
  • Not cat tolerant
  • Adoption cost $350
“Annie is a timid 5 year old red-fawn girl who is slowly learning to come out of her shell. She’s had a bit of a rough start to life and has some nasty scars on her body, but we think this just gives her extra character. Besides, look at that pretty face! She’s a quiet girl and would suit a single person, couple, or family with older children. Due to her past, she is really needing some rest and TLC in a calm home where she can relax and have her own space from time to time. She’s very good with being home alone during the day and as long as she’s had a walk and given a bone or something to keep her occupied, she’s fine to be alone during the 9-5 shift. She’s also very well house trained and usually only needs to be let out 2-3 times a day. She’s also just learnt to navigate the staircase!
Annie is just starting to get more curious on walks, is eager to go to new places and doesn’t get as startled by people as she used to. She still freezes from time to time when she gets a bit nervous, which is her way of saying “it’s time to go back to the couch now!”
She’s meeting lots of dogs and is playing very well at off leash dog parks. She gets on well with dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes, however if she were to live with another dog she would suit a house mate with a calm energy who is past the puppy stage. She’s very accepting of pats from strangers and has gotten used to having lots of people over at one time.
She’s a quiet lady of leisure and really just likes to cuddle on the couch. She loves to be patted, stroked and cuddled and really enjoys being brushed with a grooming mitt. While a bit of a couch potato, she’s slightly more energetic in the morning and in the late afternoon which is when she likes to go for her daily walks – she only needs about 15 minutes per walk before she’s ready to go home! She’s still learning how to play and likes to chase the ball on occasion, however once she gets to it she usually gives it a puzzled look!
Annie is a gorgeous girl with a kind soul who really deserves a comfy couch and lots of cuddles for the rest of her life. If you’re after a kind hearted and gentle companion who’s easy on the eyes, look no further!”

Gus

Gus is a big sooky boy that needs somebody who cans see past his size and into his loving heart! He is excellent with children, and his foster carer Belinda writes:

“Gus is living with myself, my husband Gavin and sons Jack 9 & Charlie 7.

Although Gus is a huge 40kg he is a big softie who loves attention and enjoys playing with his toys.

In between sleeping he is often following us around waiting for a cuddle and loves to lean against you whilst doing so.

Gus gets on great with our Greyhound Missy and has been friendly with everyone he has met.

Gus walks well on the lead only pulling slightly probably due to his long stride.”

  • adoption costs $300 ($350 from August 1st 2014)

Morrison

Morrison is kindly sponsored by Rose.

 

“I’m Morrison and I came in to GR with my brothers Jagger and Hendrix. Just like them I’m young and full of spirit, life will never be boring with me by your side. They say I’m a bit of a wild child but I’m full of grace -I must have got just too distracted by what life has to offer to be a racer!   What I’m after is somebody who has the same zest for life as me and understands I’m still just a baby really that needs somebody to guide me  with walks in the park, a few toys, and lots of love.  I heard there are these things called sofas that are just the thing for greyhounds, but I’ve never been in a house and I would really like to try one out – I love new experiences! A lot of people will overlook me because I’m just another black greyhound looking for a home, but if you are the one who can see that I’m young and full of potential please please get in touch with the volunteers! info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”
