Megs (homed)

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 »

Scooter

Hi, I’m Scooter! I’m just a big softie that loves a scratch and a cuddle and will follow you around everywhere… you never know where that extra cuddle might come from! I do enjoy a bit of a zoom around with my toys, I guess that’s why they call me Scooter. I’m also good with other large dogs, but they can’t be too small though – those small fluffy ones look like toys to me!

Bella (homed)

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 (homed)

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…

Bernie (homed)

Hey there, I’m Bernie. I’m a sociable, chilled out kind of dude looking for my forever home. You won’t be able to resist my supermodel good looks – honestly, if there was a greyhound version of GQ, I’d definitely be on the front cover! All I’m really looking for though is a steady supply of cuddles, I love snuggling right in close to get the best angle for butt scratches, or ear scratches – really whatever you’ve got – I just love being close! I’m an all-round friendly guy and get along well with other dogs too.

I am super friendly and get along with other dogs really well.
