Jill (Homed)

Jill is being sponsored by Alan. Thank you.

Jill has gone into foster care in the Blue Mountains with Jo!

Jill arrived with her brother Jack and is about 3 years old. Jill might be little in stature but she is big on bounce! She has lots of energy and is very playful and funny- she obviously missed the memo about greyhounds being lazy… Maybe it has something to do with her nursery rhyme namesake, or maybe its just Jill, but she loves buckets of water!  In the warm months she not only splashes about in the paddle pools but tries to do the same in her water bucket, so Jill is the only one who has two in her kennel – one for sploshing her dainty paws in and the other for drinking! She loves people to bits but is a bit wary about other dogs. It would be best if she was the only dog, and definitely not withcats. If you think you might have enough water and buckets to keep Jill happy, and a nice comfy couch to stretch out on please contact us!

Jill is:

  • 3 years old (DOB 6.1.11)
  • Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heart worm tested and treated
  • Not cat friendly
  • Located in Sydney
  • adoption costs $350

Eugene Noodles (Homed)

Mr Eugene Noodles is a special boy with an unusual name! At only one year old he has had quite a tough start to life, although the circumstances we aren’t completely aware of. It seems as though this poor boy has had an injury to his head at some point, and also his tail that unfortunately now is just a little stump! Despite the colouring in the photos this boy is actually a beautiful black and white and when his “kennel coat” comes out will lose most of the brown patches. Eugene needs a home that can give him the TLC he needs – the world is an exciting but sometimes scary place for him and he needs a home that can provide him with a stable routine and lots of love, as well as good dinners to get some weight on him. He is absolutely adorable, give him a neck scratch and he is putty in your hands, give him a cuddle and he will snuggle in with delight. He loves teddy bears, and making a nest out of his blankets and toys, although he will find the strangest positions to sleep in and would rather his head hang off the side! In fact, he would prefer to laze around than go for a walk, he should really be called “Eugene Couch Potato” than Eugene Noodles! Having already been in a foster home he is used to all the household noises, and is toilet trained. He will also be alright given some toys and a quiet space if you need to go out for a couple of hours.

Eugene would be best suited to a home without children or other dogs. We would suggest at this point he would be better in a home without cats also – being such a little dude he would like the spotlight only on himself! Eugene did not cope in kennels and is in emergency foster but we need a home for this special guy ASAP – our foster carer can only look after him for a short time. He has had quite a journey to get to us and the sooner he is in a permanent loving home the better for Mr Noodles! If you can offer your heart and home to this special boy please contact us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Eugene is:

  • Age: 1 year old
  • Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • Adoption cost $350
  • Located in Sydney
  • Not suited to cats

Leroy (Homed)

Leroy is kindly sponsored by Sarahann & Hadley.

 

Leroy is a gorgeous red fawn boy with a twinkle in his eye and a cheeky smile. He seemed pretty pleased with cracking himself up when our volunteers came to visit him at our overflow kennels at Londonderry! Eager for some company and some ear rubs and pats, Leroy seems like a very good natured fellow that would love to bust out someplace else. If you would like to know more about Leroy and help us get him or another of our patiently waiting hounds into a foster or forever home please contact us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Jed (Homed)

Jed is kindly sponsored by Ross!

 

Jed arrived as Jimmy, but we already had a Jimmy so his sponsor named him Jed 🙂

He is a handsome black fellow who just wanted to be cuddled and talked to when our volunteers paid him a visit. He was definitely wishing he could be somewhere else on a quiet comfy couch! We are just so full even at our new premises at the moment so we don’t get to know newbies like Jed as well as we would like to who are at our overflow kennels. If you could help us bust out Jed or one of his other kennel buddies into a foster or forever home please contact us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Johnny (Homed)

Johnny is kindly sponsored by Sarah.

 

Johnny is a large black and white boy who is recent save from Renbury Pound. Despite being underweight and needing some good food to fill him up he has a beautiful glossy coat. He is quite gentle and just wants to be by your side – he seems quite overwhelmed by the busy environment and was happy to spend time with our volunteers when we paid him a visit.  We are just so full even at our new premises at the moment so we don’t get to know newbies like Johnny as well as we would like to who are at our overflow kennels. If you could help us bust out Johnny or one of his other kennel buddies into a foster or forever home please contact us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Wags (Homed)

Wags is kindly sponsored by Sophie. He is currently in foster in the Blue Mountains.

“My name is Wags and I’m a handsome blue boy looking for a forever home. I am a little bit shy at first, but once I’m familiar with you I’ll love you to bits! I am very good with young children, playful smaller dogs, and I will ignore the chickens in their run if you have any of those about. I do find cats a bit too interesting so it would be best if you don’t have any of those … I am the king of snuggles, and I have the softest fur, if you have a couch to share with me I’ll help you watch all your TV shows, and I won’t even fight for the remote! I walk very well on lead and you won’t need to pull me in at all, I would much rather be by your side. If you are interested in finding out more about me please contatct  info@greyhoundrescue.com.au.”

Fred (Homed)

Fred is kindly sponsored by Ashley & Nathan.

 

Fred is one of our older hounds seeking a home. He is currently in foster with Agnes.

“Fred was so wonderful. In terms of temperament, he is a very self contained boy, extremely happy with his own company and very rarely needy of pats and attention and never hassles for food or jumps onto places he shouldn’t. That said, he does love and good cuddle and will definitey return the love of someone that pats him regularly.
I found him great to walk on the leash, he never pulled and would modify his walking pace to trot lightly beside you however fast you were walking.   Fred is absolutely fine with strange dogs, even with gregarious dogs that were off the leash in the park, as long as I kept him close and he knew he was safe.  He even made a couple of friends at the puppy park!
Freddy is an old boy, so would suit someone quite relaxed in a quiet-ish environment .  Fred would best suit someone that is quite calm and relaxed themselves, as he is a very sensitive boy.  He also has the smoothest softest ears out, and the softest little tummy that loves a gentle pat.”

Lucy (Homed)

Lovely Lucy is a recent save from a Yass trainer. Lucy is a stunning smaller fawn girl who is quickly adjusting to life in foster care instead of the training kennels.  We will update her profile as we get to know more about this beautiful girl but we know she is quite young (under 18 months old), very affectionate and sweet and very suited to life on somebody’s couch!  Lucy is currently in foster care with another greyhound and young children, so we should have more information about her as she settles into life as a foster pet!
