Pet of the Week – Toby

I’m Toby and I’m an older boy who is looking for someone who doesn’t expect me to do very much… you see I’d much rather spend most of my time snoozing the day away, get up for a snack, a bit of a wander and then back to bed again. In fact, what you need me for is making sure your couch doesn’t fly away, I’m a  professional couch ornament! What I’m looking for is a quiet home where I can spend my retirement years, preferably without any young whipper snappers. I love belly rubs, roaching, any kind of chicken snack -Mc Nuggets will make me putty in your hands (but I’m only supposed to get those as a sometimes treat – how rude!). I’d really suit a home with someone who can keep me company more hours than not – I can be a bit of a sooky homebody.  Read More »

Hi! I’m Buddy and that’s probably the best name anyone could have given me because I definitely want to be everyone’s friend! I’m what you call a real velcro dog, I like to keep really close to people and follow them everywhere – that’s how you get all the cuddles, right? Apart from being tall, dark and handsome, I’m a sweet, affectionate boy and I walk well on lead. I’ve been just ‘greyt‘ with the other greyhounds I’ve met so far, so if you’ve got a fur-sibling for me, that would be A-OK.

Hi there, I’m Pickles! I’m a handsome goofball looking for my forever home… or I should say LISTENING for my forever home. With my big radar ears, I don’t miss much of what’s going on. Well, they tend to have a mind of their own but you know you really have my attention when they shoot straight up in the air! I’ve got a real zest for life and love going on long walks mixed in with the occasional zoomie or two. I’ve been friendly with all of the new greyhounds I’ve met so far too.

Foster carers give the gift of love to homeless hounds

All Rescues need great foster carers – and Greyhound Rescue is no different.  One such foster carer is Julie-Ann Duncan.   Julie has so far fostered 4 greyhounds since she joined is just over a year ago!  All 4 are in wonderful homes and it’s due to the work Julie has done with them to get them ready for home life.  We also can’t forget Harrison the red cattle dog who is a wonderful foster brother to the greyhounds that come into Julie’s care

Our top 5 ways for your dog to beat the heat this summer

With summer on the way and forecasts climbing, it’s important to remember that furry family members feel the heat even more than we do. Temperatures that are merely uncomfortable for us can be life-threatening for dogs, making canine cooling techniques absolutely essential at this time of year. 

But don’t feel you have to hole up in air conditioning to keep Fido from overheating. There are many great activities you can enjoy together outdoors, too. Here are our top five fun ways to keep dogs cool in hot weather.  Read More »

Cool off at the top 9 dog-friendly beaches in Sydney

Dog-friendly beaches are a summertime paradise for pooches, and best of all they’re more common than you think!

Sure, many of Sydney’s most iconic beaches don’t allow pups, but you’ll find several harbour beaches, bays and lagoons where your dog can get his fur salty.

Once your pooch has dog-paddled, stick-collected and butt-sniffed to his heart’s content, why not let him feel the sand between his paws on a short stroll to dry off?

Hi there! I’m Tiny Tim – well, really it’s officially Timmy, they just call me that because I’m a rather petite little guy. That’s OK though – who says size matters? It just means I’ll be able to fit on your couch that much easier!

This big wide world is so new to me so I can be a little shy to begin with. I like to take my time to get used to new situations and people but once I get to know you I’m really very sweet. So far I’ve been getting on greyt with the other greyhounds I meet – maybe you have a fur-sibling for me? I haven’t met any kids yet but they should be OK too as long as they’re a little bit older so they understand I may need some time and space to get used to this business of being a pet.

Milly (on trial)

Hi there, I’m Milly! I’m a lovely affectionate girl and I’m much more interested in some good down time and a scratch and a cuddle. That doesn’t mean I don’t love a good zoomie now and then, I’m just happiest when I’m hanging out with humans. Being the lovely polite girl that I am,  I get on really well with all other dogs I meet.

Elsie (on trial)

Hi there, I’m Elsie! I’m a sweet, zoomy little girl with a zest for life. I am super playful and love my toys, and I’d be real happy if there were more toys at your house *hint hint*. If you’ve got a yard for me to stretch my legs in with my toys, that would be greyt too. I’m super sociable and love meeting new doggie friends. I haven’t met any of these kids yet, but because I’m a super playful girl, it might be best if they’re a little bit older.
