Sox (Homed)

Sox is kindly sponsored by Katrina & Rogan.

“I’m Sox…a red Sox actually hehehehe. Just my little joke, I’ve got nothing to do with baseball but I’ve got plenty to do with lounging around! I would love a home where I can be pampered without those small fluffy dogs or cat things, and I really prefer not to be bothered by tiny humans. It’s just so hard being the centre of attention but somedoggy’s gotta do it and it might as well be me!” contatct info@greyhoundrescue.com.au for more information on Sox or any of our other houndies waiting for a home.

Joshua (Homed)

Joshua  is kindly sponsored by Mali !

“I’m Joshua and I am a very handsome boy looking for my perfect match. I am better looking that Josh Groban ; I have more charisma than Josh Hartnett ; and I’m more entertaining than Josh Thomas.   I am one of GR’s most handsome fellas, I just have some very specific criteria for my perfect match so it’s taking a little longer to find my soul mate. You know, I really need to have a TV show all of my own perhaps I should get in touch with The Bachelor people! I’m looking for love!

I am nice and clean in my kennel (house trained people!), give excellent kisses (hellllllo ladies), and enjoy a brisk short walk to keep up my fine physique (I’m an adonis what can I say). I prefer a home where I am the centre of attention, as once you have fallen in love with me I can assure you your heart can’t be given away to anyone else! Just to persuade you a little more I’m a Christmas child, and I would dearly love to be in a home all of my own as a birthday and Christmas present. If you think I could come and curl up on the sofa with you get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

“I’m Nina and I’m a ballerina when I do my little pirouettes to greet you! I am also very good at kisses. I’m a friendly red fawn girl that would like to be queen of your dancing floor…well…to be honest I’m a greyhound, so I would probably only be on the dancing floor for five minutes and then be queen of the lounge instead! If you’ re interested in me or any of my houndie friends contact the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Beaver (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

Beaver is kindly sponsored by Jillian.

 

“Hi I’m Beaver ….although I’m not really a beaver, I’m just trying to go all incognito – I’m actually a very furry cuddly greyhound! Unlike real beavers I just don’t have the skill or inclination to build my own lodge, so I’m here at GR hoping that someone who already has a home with a comfy couch already installed will give me a home instead. I may be up for an adventure or two, but if there’s any couches that need to be pinned down you can guarantee you can leave it to Beaver! If you are interested in me or any of my kennel friends please contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Christopher (non -Greyhound) Homed

“Hi I’m Christopher and you may have noticed that I don’t look like other greyhounds. You see, what happened was, I was at the pound with no other options (very sad I know) and I heard them say there was a limo heading out to Greyhound Rescue, where I heard they find the best homes. So I told them I was a greyhound and I needed a ride there and I got a ride!So here I am looking for a family to call my own! OK, so it might not have been a limo, and I might not be a greyhound, but I’m very adorable just the same, even if I have a scruffy face and I don’t always tell the whole truth.

I would like a family who can keep me entertained (and I’ll entertain you too!) take me for walks, and love me for who I am.  I adore kiddies and  would suit an active home where I can use all that joie de vivre! I can sit, drop, and heel – I am quite obedient and eager to learn more. All I need is that special someone I just haven’t met yet! If you are interested in meeting me or any of the other dogs waiting at GR get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Ned (Homed)

Ned is kindly sponsored by Shan, Rogan & Katrina.

“I’m Ned and I’m a handsome blue fawn boy that just wants to bust outta here and have fun! I’m a bit of a larrikin, and I’ve heard whispers that I must have been named after Ned Kelly for my love of roguish capers. Surely my million dollar smile will convince you I’m just a bit of a lad looking for my perfect match and I just need someone to make sure I don’t get into too much mischief. On the other hand, if you’re somebody looking for shenanigans I would be very happy to be your sidekick! Young kiddies get me a bit too excited, so I would be best in a home with teenagers or just adults. I suppose not everybody would be interested in me, so many people have those little humans around…wait, did you say you don’t have any? Quick, get in touch with the volunteers and bust me outta here so we can go have some fun!”

Derrick (Homed)

Derrick is sponsored by Amanda!

Derrick has been waiting quite a while now for a forever home and we can’t quite work out why he this charming blue and white boy hasn’t been homed yet!

“I’m Derrick and I have already been waiting in kennels since before Christmas for a forever home. Is it because I just get too happy whenever I have a visitor? ‘Cos I quietly walk on the lead when we get started I just want to make everyone who sees me feel like they are the most important person in the world – better even than a tin of sardines for breakfast! I like my own space  – I like to consider myself a bit of a dude and if there was a man cave I could hang out in somewhere (hopefully with a lounge) I would be the happiest dog alive. It’s not my fault I’m bigger than some of the other houndies – I’m just tall for my size okay?! I can curl up small if I need to, and anyway, as the humans say big is beautiful!”  If Derrick looks like the kind of boy that you would like to get to know while lounging on a couch get in touch to foster or adopt : info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Lucky (Homed)

Lucky is kindly sponsored by Noral & Andy.

Lucky’s foster family have this to say about “Lucky Duck”

” Lucky is the most adorable boy we could ask for.

“We have been fostering him for a few months now and he gets along fabulously with our two greyhounds and a Jack Russell cross Daisy. He is Daisy’s favourite play mate and she loves snuggling in next to him on the couch.

Lucky has very expressive eye, a beautiful face, and just can’t get enough of cuddles. He is extremely affectionate and loves getting his ears scratched by just about anyone.

He is well house trained and behaves perfectly inside -he will let you know when he needs to go out. Even though he is a tall boy, he has no idea counter-surfing is a thing!

Lucky will do great with a doggie companion. Although he loves people, he is content to be with our greyhounds while we are at work. We all absolutely adore him and we think he deserves the best loving family of his own. ” If Lucky sounds your kind of hound please get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Lucky Star (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

Lucky Star really is a Lucky star! Many of you will have followed her story and contributed to the costs of her care -thank you so much for your donations!

Lucky is ready to be adopted, and this darling little girl will make someone very lucky indeed to have her in their lives. She is very much a socialite being good with cats, other dogs big and small, as well as kiddies. She  recently won Top Fundraiser in Canberra’s Next Top Pet competition, and was in the Canberra Times!  Her foster mummy writes:

“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. She loves all toys, socks, and is very, very clever. She’s great with all other dogs and is fine around cats.”
If you are interested in Lucky please contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au
