Pet of the Week – Kid (on trial)

Hi, I’m Houndie The Kid, or just Kid for short. Now, I try not to be an outlaw, but I can tell you that I will steal your heart! With my striking brindle coat, how could you resist me! I’m a friendly, chilled, and curious guy that loves a good cuddle. Oh, I love to play too, so if you come with squeaky toys – I’ll be your friend forever! I’m also a rather social chap so if you have other large dogs or even tiny humans that would be just fine by me, just none of the small fluffy kind of dogs please – they cramp my style! Read More »

Goldie

Hi! They call me Goldie, probably because of my gorgeous golden coat. I’m a super affectionate girl with loads of personality and a zest for life. I just love getting out and about here at GR HQ. When I’m not enjoying my walks, I really love being the centre of attention… which means I’m not really keen on sharing the spotlight so I’m best as an only dog. Once you meet me though, you’ll learn why you wouldn’t want anyone else in your life but me!

Andrew

Hi there, I’m Andrew. If my good looks don’t win you over, my princely charms will! I don’t mean to brag, but you should know that I’m a world class cuddler – you will definitely get the royal treatment from me. I’m just a super smoochy boy that’s all about the affection. Now, I do have to let you know that I do have an ongoing condition with my eyes* but I can assure you that doesn’t slow me down at all… really, it probably just makes me smoochier. When it comes to other dogs, I do enjoy the company of the ladies more… so maybe you’ve already got a lady friend for me to hang out with?

Sasha

Hello! I’m Sasha, a cheeky little miss ready to steal your heart! At only 18 months old I am still a playful baby – I love meeting new people and toys… I LOVE toys! Especially if you have a squeaky toy. Oh boy, I LOOOOOVE those! I haven’t gotten to meet many other dogs until now – so I’m really a bit unsure around new dogs. I’d love a home that can take the time to teach me that dogs are friends too, just like people are! I’d also love to go to a home in a quieter neighbourhood so I can concentrate super hard on learning what this pet business is about without too many distractions. I promise I’ll pay you back with lots of cuddles!

Rigby

Hi, I’m Rigby! I am quite a big boy but don’t let my size fool you, I’m one of the most affectionate and smoochy hounds you’ll ever meet! In fact, I’ll be perfectly happy in an apartment as long as you have a comfy couch for me to snuggle into with you. I’m good with big dogs but those little dogs just get me a bit too excited if they come close.

Brooke

Hi! I’m Brooke and I’m a special gal looking for a special family. You see, I have a heart murmur and need to take medicine for it each day. Fortunately, Greyhound Rescue is kindly going to cover the ongoing costs for it. I’d really love a calm doggy companion to show me the ropes of pet life while I come out of my shell. I also need some patient humans who will give me some time and space at first, but once I get to know you I’m a real snuggle bug and will come to you for smooches!

*Brooke has a heart murmur and requires twice daily medication. This means Brooke is classed as a ‘sanctuary dog’ and will have all of her vet bills covered for her heart murmur for the rest of her life.

Miley

Hi there, I’m Miley! Just like my namesake, I’m quite the character. I’m VERY enthusiastic about life. I love food, and toys, and pats, and food, and walks, and pats, and food! Did I mention food? Just I case you missed that, I really fancy myself quite the gourmet! I guess you can tell that I’m a bit enthusiastic, so I should probably go to a home in a quiet area, so I don’t get too distracted while I learn about this pet business. But really, I just love life and am super excited about sharing it with my forever family soon!

Naomi (on trial)

Hi There, I’m Naomi. I arrived here at GR HQ with my sister Little Chloe, now I’m not saying we have to be homed together but it’d be really nice if I could find a home with my sister. Besides – the only thing better than one greyhound, is two! At just two years old, I’m a super sweet girl with plenty of personality and a bounce in my step. While I’m a fairly confident girl, I don’t think the city life is for me – I much prefer a quieter pace. So if you live in a nice quiet neighbourhood in the suburbs that would be just perfect for me!

Little Chloe (on trial)

Hi! I’m Little Chloe, but my friends call me LC. I arrived here at GR HQ with my sister Naomi, now we don’t HAVE to be homed together but I do best with a doggie companion by my side – and who better than my sister! Besides – having two greyhounds is double the fun! At just two years old, I’m the sweetest and most playful little girl you’ll meet… I can be a wee bit shy though, which is why I’d do best in a quieter home and neighbourhood with a doggie friend to help with my confidence. It doesn’t matter if they’re big or small either – I’m great with dogs of all sizes!
