Betty (on trial)

Hi I’m Betty! I’m a petite little girl who’s light on her toes and heavy on the smooching. Yep, all you will want to do is love me that I can be sure of! I am great with kiddies and other doggies too, but I’m really mostly interested in people – I mean, that’s where the cuddles are, right? I’m just an all-round sweet and affectionate girl with plenty of love to give… and if you have a nice spot on the couch for me, I wouldn’t say no to that either!

A big thank you to Viacom!

Each year international media network Viacom dedicates one day of the year across the globe where all employees get together and give back to the community.

This year the Viacom team in Sydney chose Greyhound Rescue. Right from the get-go the ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ over every beautiful greyhound they met ensured they’d have a wonderful day at our rescue kennels in South West Sydney!

The team helped with walking duties, cleaning the kitchen and food prep area – crawling right inside the cupboards to ensure they were spotless, mopped the floors, swept outside, sorted out towels and blankets, took rubbish to the dumpster, sorted out the winter and autumn coats and were general all-round ‘greyt guys’.

Frankie

Hi, I’m Frankie and I’m a bit of a goofball looking for someone who loves life as much as I do. I love showing off, having fun, and any bit of excitement really. I would be suited to a home without anything small and fluffy and kid’s over 10 (it’s not that I don’t like little ones but I get so excited so I might knock them over). What I’m thinking is – I could be your personal trainer.  I could take you on walks, and see if you could keep up with me if we did a sprint or two. I’ll have you fit in no time! All I ask in return is for a comfy couch, good food, and lots of love.

Jack

Hi, I’m Jack and I’m a bit of a dude. I’ve not been here long, so I’m very new to this whole rescue business and I’m learning how to use my ‘pet’ manners so I can be your best mate! That means I’m looking for someone who’s experienced with dogs to help me learn about this big wide world. I’ve learned very quickly though how good a scratch behind the ears is!  I would be best in a home with older children… just because I’m a big, excitable boy. Oh, and being the athletic type, I’d love a home with a yard where I can run and stretch my legs.

Polly (on trial)

I’m Polly, and I’m a petite little girl that could fit in your pocket! Well, maybe not your pocket – but I’d definitely fit nicely on your couch! I’m a fun loving, super smoochy, extra cuddly gal who’d love a home with loads of toys to play fetch with and maybe a backyard to stretch my legs or do a zoomie or two. I get along well with other dogs, and I do love kids but I love them so much that sometimes I get a little bit overexcited so if they’re a bit older that would be just greyt.

Kwazi

Hi, I’m Kwazi. I’m a fun loving guy who’s dreaming of a family of my very own. I’d do best in a family without really young kiddies (just because I’m a big boy), but if you have some older kids willing to play fetch with me, I’m more than happy to oblige!  Toys are definitely a requirement – especially the plush variety – so might be a good idea to buy them in bulk! So far, I’ve been great with other big doggos, but I’m still learning my manners around the small-fluffy kind.

Jessica needs cleft palate surgery!

Have you ever met one of those dogs who is so vivacious and sweet that everyone loves them immediately? They make friends everywhere they go and bring a smile to people’s faces. That’s Jessica. In spite of a medical problem that causes her discomfort and extreme difficulty eating on a daily basis, she is playful and loving, and nothing short of a delight.

Jessica was born with a very pronounced cleft palate. She has a gaping hole in the roof of her mouth that goes all the way through to her nasal cavity. Every time she tries to eat or drink, food and water fall back out her nose. There is a real risk that she could breathe it in or it could become stuck and cause a life-threatening infection.

Jess has had one round of surgery so far and needs another operation and a special dental plate to allow her a chance at a normal life, and so that we can find her a loving home.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution and give Jess this special gift.

Zephyr

I have been at kennels since October 2017 and I’m finally ready for a couch please. I have some medical stuff going on (but remember, if you foster me, all vet bills will be covered by Greyhound Rescue) and this means I’m unable to be desexed until I’m a bit healthier, but I do have a temporary implant in place of it for now. I’ll therefore need a foster home where I am the only pet (though I am okay with other dogs in the long term).

I’ve had quite a rough start to life. It’s not nice to talk about, but I’ve had minimal socialisation and interaction with humans, though I find all the kennel volunteers nice and not at all scary. Because of this, I need a kind, patient foster carer who can give me a LOT of love, as I really do have so much to give in return, I’m still just learning how.

I used to be left alone for hours and hours at a time, and gosh, that was pretty horrible for me. As such, I really need at least one of my carers to be home with me more often than not. Maybe you work from home? Maybe you’re retired? Whatever the situation, I’m sure that once you spend a bit of time in my company you won’t be in a hurry to go anywhere anyway!

If you have kids, please note I’m best suited to those over 10 years old, as I’m a big boy and could knock the little ones over. I wouldn’t mean it, of course. I just move like the wind.

I’d be over the moon if you have a backyard as I have energy to burn and would benefit from plenty of space. Above all, I really need an understanding carer or family that will be patient and kind while introducing me to the wonder and kindness of a world I’ve never known.

Tiny (homed)

Hi there! My name is Tiny and I’m petite and charming little girl. I can be a little bit shy when I meet new people, but after a good scratch – I’ll be putty in your hands! Once you’ve won me over, I’m definitely a people-person, and usually prefer to hang around the hoomans than the other hounds… I’m OK with the other dogs, I just know where the most cuddles come from!
