I’m Licorice and I’m as black and slim as that sugary treat! I am fun loving and playful, and looking for a home with some room for me to stretch my legs and chase a ball. I would suit a family without very young children, but if you have some teenage boys willing to play soccer I’m happy to help them put in some practice! Toys are definitely a requirement, I would buy them in bulk for me if I were you… As I am a sporty type I would not suit living in a unit, but an active family with a bit of a backyard would be just the ticket.

Atticus (homed)

I’m Atticus and I’m a quiet good natured boy.  I’m very affectionate and love a good ear scratch (who doesn’t?)! I am OK with other dogs but would have to meet them first to see if we get along. Kiddies are ok with me but if they get too loud, they can make me nervous which is why I’d like a quiet spot where I can snooze the day away. If it’s not too much bother at all, I’d prefer to go to a house with a yard, I’m not an overly active boy but do best with some extra space – so no apartments for me. I’d be happy to sit next to you while you watch the telly or read a book, I’d really make an excellent couch ornament!

Volunteer of the Month – July 2017

We’d like to introduce you to Tracy, one of our super-dedicated volunteers who we are recognising as our ‘Volunteer of the Month’ for July.

Our volunteers are the very backbone of what we do at GR. Without them, we could not possibly save and rehome as many greyhounds as we do. While every single one of our volunteers is important no matter how much they do whether hands on with the dogs or behind the scenes, every month we are introducing just one of them to you and acknowledging their amazing efforts. These volunteers have demonstrated exceptional passion, commitment, reliability, and co-operation to make GR what it is, and we thank them tremendously.


We had a chat to Tracy to learn more about why she loves volunteering with Greyhound Rescue…

Hi! My name is Gypsy and I’m petite, charming with plenty of personality! I’m what you might call a real ‘velcro dog’, I love sticking close by you and if you give me an ear scratch in just the right place, I’ll reward you with some teeny tiny teeth chatters. That’s how you know you’ve got the right spot!

I like sticking close, but I still like to have a bit of fun. I am quite playful and love a good zoomie now and then so if you have a bit of space for me to stretch my legs, that would be just ‘greyt’! I’m also good with kids if they’re a bit older but I’m happiest if I can be an only dog – who needs to share the limelight, right?
