Teddy (Homed)

Teddy is proudly sponsored by Mali & Nerida.

 

My name’s Teddy and I am cuddly just like teddy bear too! (If you are one of the lady folk I do like a bosom to rest my head on hee hee hee). I am a pretty lazy lad, I’ll chill out on my bed, go out for a stretch and zoom, and toddle back again to catch forty winks. I’m great with kiddies, and looking for people that will love me and take me places. Hey – if I join your family you can take me for a teddy bear picnic!

Stephanie (Homed)

Stephanie is proudly sponsored by Fiona & Daniel.

 

I am one of the smallest little girls you will ever meet – to make myself look taller I put my ears up (if I was human I’d wear high heels…) I have excellent hearing and can hear a packet open a mile away (you know, just in case you need to know where to find a snack). I am shy at first with people and a bit uncertain with new dogs, but once I get to know them and relax a bit my personality shines through. I love to play but I am just as happy curling up for a nap after a few zoomies or a walk. Don’t let my size fool you, I’m still very capable of stealing toast off the bench…er…I mean reaching up to high places…I promise I won’t do it often. I am best in a home without cats, but will happily live with other dogs. If you have just a little bit of space for a little girl get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Gigi (Homed)

Gigi is kindly sponsored by Christine.

 

My name is Gigi and just like my namesake I am a petite, charming, and have plenty of personality. I am quite sure they must have been thinking about me when they wrote “Thank Heaven for Little Girls!” I am looking for a home that wants to have a bit of fun, as I am quite playful and ready for adventure. I am very friendly with humans (big and small) and other doggies, although I may need a few more introductions for smaller dogs. Unfortunately I am too playful for cats, so it is best you don’t have any of those. If you think you would like a little girl at your house come and meet me!

Help Our Hounds Hop Into a Home This Easter

twigbunny
Help the hounds hop into a home this Easter…
For $450* you could love the Easter Show for a day. For $350 you could be loved by a greyhound forever! 
 
We are currently OVERFULL at Greyhound Rescue with over 50 dogs in kennels alone and at present cannot save any more. We urgently need to see more hounds in homes, but we need your help to get them there. 
 
The holiday period is a time when people are at home more and a perfect time to settle in a new family member. If you have been thinking about adopting or perhaps you have a spare couch to foster a greyhound in need we would love to hear from you. Why not forgo the Show this year and spend Easter with a greyhound instead?
 
If you are unable to adopt or foster, we are also always in need of regular sponsors and donations particularly at times like these when our kennelling, food, treatments, and vet costs are very high. Every little bit counts!
 
For more information on our adoption and fostering process please visit www.greyhoundrescue.com.auor contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au and get in touch with our volunteers.

Gidget (Puppy) (Homed)

Gidget is proudly sponsored by Laura.

 

My name is Gidget and I am a little girl with big ideas. My big idea, just like my namesake is to go surfing. Um….counter surfing that is! But being a puppy who was surrendered because I had broken my leg means I’m going to need some help to get to that counter surfing height!

At 8 weeks old I broke my leg while in my pen with my brothers and sisters. The nature of my injury meant I would be no good as a racer, so my owner surrendered me after the break had healed at 14 weeks. Because I had to be kept by myself for 6 weeks and not run around I need some help to recover. I need hydrotherapy to help develop muscle in my back legs, high quality food to help my bones grow strong, in home physio, and vet visits to see how I’m progressing.

 

I am currently in foster care with two greyhounds, a cattle dog, and a staffy so I am being very well socialized and learning how to be a pet. I am a nosy, cheeky little kleptomaniac who wants to explore everything life has to offer and I’m not going to be held back by a little thing like a wonky leg. No sireeeee!

 

I need a home with a family who can commit to continue my treatments and check ups, and  I will also need someone who is immune to my cuteness and be firm with me. I am just a baby so I need to learn some rules (so I am told anyway!) so I will need to go to dog manners classes, and continue my socialization to grow into a well rounded dog. I am expected to make a full recovery and my injury doesn’t make any difference to my joy in life!

 

Greyhound Rescue will cover the costs of my treatment, and my desexing when I am big enough. Because of this I will need a home in the Sydney area as my dogtor and hydrotherapist is in Western Sydney. If you are up for a little girl with big ideas, get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Gidget is:

  • Puppy at 18 weeks
  • Microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • Will be desexed at the appropriate age
  • Located in Sydney
  • Cat Tolerant: No
  • Small Dog Tolerant: Yes
  • Child Friendly: Yes

Milton (Homed)

Milton is kindly sponsored by Carly & Toni.

My name is Milton and I found myself at the pound with my doggy friend through no my fault of my own. My friend and I were unfortunately separated and because I am so young I feel very lost without her! Lucky for me the kind folk at GR are looking after me at kennels, but this is no place for a young dog with a life ahead of him like me. Unfortunately I can’t cope on my own and I get quite distressed so it is very important that I have a friend and someone who is home quite a lot. Think of all the things that can’t go by themselves, I’m just like one of them, looking for my perfect partner…like a lock and key, paper and pen,  cheese and crackers….mmmmm….crackers…. oops. I got a bit distracted there! I quite like food too. Do you like food? Maybe we can have some dinner dates?

I am very playful, excellent with kiddies,but not so good with cats and some smaller dogs. I will need somebody who has experience with bigger dogs that is willing to love me so I can love them back and even more!

Milton is:

  • Age approx 2 years old
  • Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • Located in Sydney
  • Adoption cost $350
  • Cats: No
  • Small Dogs: some smaller dogs – not suitable for foxie sizes

Ann (Homed)

Ann is proudly sponsored by Lisa.

 

“Well you’ve heard of the Ann with an ‘E’ but have you heard of Ann with a G?  I’m Ann of Grey Gables and I have an imagination. I’m imagining myself in a home, with a kindred spirit, and on a couch. Where I am loved for who I am, and not how fast I run. As Anne of Green Gables once said ‘Because when you are imagining, you might as well imagine something worth while.’ For many of us greyhounds this doesn’t come true, but since I arrived at Greyhound Rescue I know I just have to be a little patient and my imaginings will come true! I love to play, whether it’s by myself or with a friend, I’m great with other doggies, kids, and love snuggling up to my toys. If you can give me my House of Dreams and make my wishes come true I’ll love you forever!”

Ann is:

  • DOB approx 2 years old

Kerry (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

Kerry is proudly sponsored by Michele, Nina & Luke.

 

“I’m Kerry and I was surrendered with a few of my brothers and sisters. I was quite timid when I first arrived but now I’m full of happiness! I would benefit from having a doggy companion as well as someone who is home a lot as I really don’t like being by myself. I can live with small dogs or put up with a kitty if you have either of those. I’m looking for someone that will cherish me for just being who I am as a dog and doesn’t care if I can race or not (except to the lounge and my food bowl, that is important!) During my cat test I may or may not have figured out where the bed was…but I definitely found the couch so as you can see I’m very clever! If you have a spot for me on your couch please contact the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Moose – Non Greyhound (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

Moose is proudly sponsored by Shelley & Belinda.

 

“The name’s Moose and I’m a bit of a goose! At only 7 months old I’m just a baby with a zest for life and kennels are no place for me to grow up in. Underweight and covered in ticks I thought there wasn’t much to life until I got a  ticket into GR.I might not be a greyhound but I’m sure you’ll love me just as much as one. Because I am a pup I will need someone with experience who will be firm and teach me dog manners, and also commit to my socialisation. I can live with a confident cat, and dogs that have the patience for a pup. I love getting lots of attention and it would be ideal if I had a playmate. Kids are ok by me although as I get so excited to meet them older kiddos would be best. If you think you might have a spot for me at your house contact the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

  • DOB: 7 months old (Feb 2016)
  • Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • Adoption cost $350
  • Located in Sydney
  • Cat Tolerant – Yes – confident cats
  • Small dog tolerant – Yes
  • Child Friendly – Yes, best with over 10’s as I can be energetic
