(Lady) Rogan (Homed)

Rogan is kindly sponsored by Laura.

 

My name is Rogan, and despite being a senior don’t think I can’t be “roguish!” I’m a blue lady (that’s not a rinse, that’s my natural fur colour dear), and I can still outrun, outplay, and outsmart the best of them. I’m the sort of older lady with a twinkle in her eye that will fool you into thinking I’m helpless and innocent…and then I’ll push ahead of you onto the bus and nimbly hop up the front (maybe just the bingo bus at my age but you never know…) And probably pay in 5 coins. And I’ll chortle about it later, I’m pretty good at cracking myself up! If you think you could fall for my ladylike but roguish charms, get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

“I’m Boss – but you can call me “The Boss!” I’ve got plenty of personality and superstar potential (just like the other Boss Bruce Springsteen you know?)  I’m a happy dude that may have been born to run but really, I only want to run to a couch. What I’m looking for is a sofa to be boss of, a family to love me, and a full dinner bowl. I don’t know if I’m up for dancing in the dark, but I’m definitely up for a few walks in the park!

Imogen – (Homed)

Imogen is kindly sponsored by Dimity, and is now in foster care.

I’m Imogen and I’m a dainty little brindle girl that yearns for a home of my own! I love to play with my toys and do a zoomie or two but really I just like to chill out on my bed. I bring my own blankets out to the front of my kennel and lie on them so I don’t miss anything that’s happening – I like to know what’s going on and I’m sure I would make an excellent member of Neighbourhood Watch. If I came to your house I am sure I could tell you all about what’s been going on all day…well, when I wasn’t napping anyway! I’m looking for a home where I can be top dog without bothering with small fluffies like pussycats or smaller dogs. I am very good on the lead and love to snuggle with the volunteers when they come and hang out with me. I want to be the centre of your world and I promise I will make you mine. If you would like to meet me please contact the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au.”

Lucky Star’s Story

Miss Lucky is a 5 month old puppy who was discarded from a breeding facility on August 24th when her left hind-leg was suspected to be broken. Our amazing foster carers in Canberra took her in, and rushed her to the wonderful vets at Weston Woden Animal Hospital & Clinic, who established the massive swelling was due to a severe cellulitis infection, likely caused by an untreated dog bite left to heal over and fester.

Lucky’s leg turned septic that night and her body went into shock. Despite surviving without major damage to her internal organs, and the attempt to save her leg, our little warrior Lucky has now had a leg amputation as the bacterial infection has caused extreme tissue damage and skin loss.

Lucky is now a “tripod” but will have an incredible life regardless. She is already standing up and hobbling around, and we think she will have her balance perfect in no time.

We want to thank the staff at Weston Woden animal hospital, and everyone who has donated to Lucky’s vet bill. You guys are truly amazing!

Little Miss Lucky-star has touched many hearts with her determination to live despite what she has been through. We also believe that’s she IS the lucky one, because from now on she will know love and will not be neglected again.

Greyhound Rescue has homed and helped many, many dogs over the years. From our founders  Janet and Peter’s small beginnings within their home 10 years ago, to the official establishment of the organisation in 2008, and GR as it is today: a  dedicated team of volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes in many areas to home the hounds, and raise public awareness.

GR cannot do all of this without your help, and we are always seeking financial support not only for cases like Lucky but for the care of all our hounds waiting patiently for their forever homes. We do not receive any official funding and rely solely on the generosity of the community for donations. All donations over $2.00  are tax deductible and every bit goes to our vet bills, kenneling costs, food, flea and worming treatments, jackets, and more.

5/9/15 A follow up on Lucky’s progress, from her foster mum-
“Because Lucky’s leg infection was extensive, her amputation surgery was a serious undertaking (it lasted 3.5 hours!). But of course our superstar greyhound puppy pulled through…
Lucky-Star has now spent her first night in foster care. She needs my help to stand up, but apart from that, she ‘hobble-zooms’ all over the place! This little tripaw hound is an inspiration the way she just copes with whatever life throws at her!
This time last week, things were not looking good for Lucky and it was not clear if the infection could be contained, whether the leg could be saved (or operated on), or even if her life could be saved. So, a massive ‘thank-you’ goes to Dr Ivan, Dr Shona and Dr Camilla at Weston Woden Animal Hospital. Lucky is going to have an excellent life with a very, very lucky family thanks to their all day and night efforts.
Another big thank-you goes to all the people who have followed Lucky’s story, sent her strength, supported her emotional humans, and generously donated to Greyhound Rescue to help cover vet bills. She wouldn’t be alive without you. As she will continue to need veterinary care, and likely a little physio, we really appreciate any further donations and well-wishes towards Lucky-Star!
Watch this space for cute puppy photos and more info on her personality as she recovers :)”
Update from Lucky-Star’s Foster Mum 10 Sep
Lucky star post op
“Today was Lucky-Star’s 1 week ‘ampuversary’! She has been a tripawd for one whole week!
Considering her strength to survive a neglectful breeder, septic shock and a severe cellulitis infection, I probably shouldn’t be so surprised at how excellent her movement is already. No more hobbling for Lucky, she is a graceful greyhound.
Lucky’s confidence has grown every day- she’s started wagging her tail and moving her ears. And she is extremely squishy and cuddly – I could cuddle her all day! Even her big foster brother Bobby doesn’t mind cuddles in bed…
She’s learning all the basics here- toilet training (no issues since day 2!), food and bed routines, chew toys and not cables, and the ‘roach’ sleeping position. “

Brocky (Homed)

Brocky is being sponsored by Mali Luty and has gone to foster with Jane in Canberra

“My name is Brocky and I am looking for my perfect match! I am very well house trained as I have been living in a foster home so I would easily adapt to your house. I’m looking for somewhere that has a doggy lady love around my size as well as humans to adore so I don’t get lonely while you are at work. I really love to be with people and I am an excellent supervisor. I will be by your side and keep an eye whatever you are doing (this is a very important job, who else will make sure you get up and ready in the morning?!) I am only three years old so although I’m out of that puppy phase I am still quite playful.  I like children and can play catch so if you have any kiddos at your house I can keep them entertained for a bit too if they throw a ball for me! I like snoozin’ and zoomin’ and snoozin’ again, I really don’t need much exercise to keep me happy. A short walk is all I need, around the block would do. Cats and small dogs just aren’t my bag baby so hopefully they aren’t you’re bag either? They’re not? Super!!!! Get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Bridget Jones (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

 

Bridget is in foster in the Blue Mountains with 5 other houndies, four cats, chickens, and a duck!

“I’m Bridget and when I arrived to GR I was very skinny and looking shabby not chic…but those days are behind me now. I told my foster mummy that I wanted a bottom the size of Brazil, just like Bridget Jones. Who wants to be a stick insect when you can have a sexy curvaceous toosh? Well I think I got what I was after… I arrived a scrawny 25 kg and am now filled out at 32kg. And I still look like a supermodel!

I’m looking for someone who will love me just the way I am – a little left of centre, goofy, snuggly, and wanting to adore you. I am looking for someone who would spend a lot of time at home, or has a doggy friend to keep me company while you are at work. I wouldn’t want to be a singleton again.  The last thing in the world you want is to come home to me sitting in my onsie rooing along to Jamie O’ Neal’s “All By  Myself.” It may be entertaining for you but I would be very sad!

I get along with cats and small dogs, but other doggies my size I much prefer the gents. If you are Colin Firth (or have the Colin Firth of the canine world) I am yours! Get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”
