“I’m Hadley and I bet you wish you had me! I’m not only laid back and extremely good looking (I passed my cat test and I’m very gentle with kiddies too!) but I’m also very good at ensuring the couch doesn’t fly away. This is a very important job, best given to a big boy like me who will make sure the job is done right. Think of all those poor people that don’t have houndies to stop their lounges flying away – wait, are you one of them? You need me! I need you! Get in touch with my people and let’s make a deal! I’ll lie on your couch and you can pay me in good dinners and snuggles in the evening. Sounds good? Terrific! Get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Banana (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

Banana s kindly sponsored by Sarahann.

 

“Hi I’m Banana and all my life so far I’ve thought the grass is always greener on the other side! I’ve been looking longingly past my gate just busting to get out towards that horizon and find a family to love me. Up to the present all my attempts to have an adventure and find the love of my life have been thwarted. Lucky for me GR is going to do the finding for me now. All I want is a nice quiet spot with a (banana) lounge, someone to take me for walks and let me snuggle into their lap. If you like the sound of lying somewhere on a banana lounge sipping a banana daiquiri with the doggy love of your life by your side then I might be the hound for you! It might help if you really like bananas. Are you Bananaman? You are?! Well get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Ernie (Homed)

“Hi I’m Ernie and I am what they call a class clown. If greyhounds went to school, I would be sitting in the back row and always in trouble for wanting to get out and play instead of paying attention. I think that’s why I wasn’t much good at racing – I just want to have fun! I’m looking for a home and a family that enjoy the bright side of life and don’t mind me spending my days goofing off. If you have kiddies I quite like them –  we can goof off together! Get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au if you are interested in finding out more about me!”

Kerrie- Lee (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

My name is Kerrie- Lee, and although every houndie is special I am told I am just that little bit more special as it is not often GR has the mama dog of other dogs they have saved. I am mama to Grace Kelly and Harrison(now Flash) that were rescued as puppies and have found their homes. It’s my turn now!

I was lucky enough to see my rescued babies again but I am done with puppies and want a life that involves doing not much more than lying on a comfy warm sofa and snuggling into your lap. I get very excited when the humans come home and will greet you with lots of love. A very short walk is all I need, and I walk very gently on the lead. I do like to play with soft toys and have the odd caper or zoomie, but other than that I am a very relaxed hound. I adore ear rubs and will startle you with how loud I can groan in dogstasy when I am given one. It is very important my forever family knows how to give ear rubs. Other than that I don’t have too many requirements!

I may not be the youngest or colourful hound but I am told I have the most beautiful soul, and the cutest face. I am good with other doggies large or small, cats, and children. Did I tell you I am also not very big? If you would like to be my ear masseur get in touch with the volunteers at GR info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Cookie (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

 

My name is Choc Chip Cookie – you can call me Cookie – and I am sister to Pearl and Biscuit who have already found their homes. My foster Mummy says that what I really should be called is The Cookie Monster because I LOVE DOGGY COOKIES!!! Cookies….Om nom nom nom nom. Of course, I’m only allowed to eat doggy cookies as a Sometimes Food, most of the time I have regular healthy doggy breakfasts and dinners, and cookies only come out for a reward, like Last Wees Before Bed which I am very good at.  I have been learning to wait while the humans are eating instead of grabbing at food, I couldn’t help myself you see but I am learning these things called Manners.

I have almost learned how to negotiate stairs but I do get stuck halfway sometimes when I forget what to do. I’m new at this, so give me a break ok?  I don’t like Cars very much but I am learning that going in one of them means we are going for Walks and I LOVE them – not as much as cookies though. Maybe if I come to live at your place you can give me a cookie each time I go in the car? For encouragement?

Foster Mummy says I am one of those special houndies that can live with those creatures called Cats. There is one in particular that lives in the house and he is always coming up to smooch me, which I don’t mind at all. I am very good with other doggies, I am currently with other greyhounds and a whippet deerhound cross. On our walks I am ok with whippets and italian greyhounds, but really fluffy dogs give me the pips. Hey, I’m sure you don’t like all kinds of people either do you?!

I’m looking for a family that enjoys lots of snuggles. I have very soft fur and the cutest most velvety ears so I am sure you wouldn’t have any problems wanting to give me lots of pats. And don’t forget it is very important that I go to a family that likes cookies. This isn’t negotiable. As the real Cookie Monster says: “Sometimes Me think what is a friend? and then Me say: Friend is someone to share the last cookie with.” If you think you have the right home for me, a penchant for baking and a full set of cookie cutters then I am the doggy for you.

Lucy (Homed)

Lucy is in foster in Canberra. This is what her foster family says about her:

“Lucy aka: Lucy Liu, bubba, precious, sweet angel, is a beautiful 2.5 yo fawn/ red haired girl. She has been in foster care for 2 months to assist her in overcoming obstacles preventing her from being a confident young lady. Lucy suffered from extreme anxiety when first rescued and displayed this through various behaviours. She is an intelligent and exceptionally loving girl and has overcome ALL her obstacles.

At present, she lives with 3 other canines, 1 being a fellow grey, and mixes with them well. However, she can be excited with young smaller dogs and needs close supervision to maintain she doesn’t get ‘carried away’. Although, once they’ve established the dynamics, she is happy to leave them be. She has not been cat tested and could possibly fail this so will need a feline free home.

Lucy loves to be loved and a enjoys daily snuggles. She also loves to play and has discovered the joys of splashing in water holes. She eats well, is in good health and recently enjoyed her first manicure.  Walks well on lead although, has realised the exciting action of seeing ducks at the lake and kangaroos on her mountain walk.

Given Lucys’ history, she will need someone that spends time at home during the working week. She would be happy with a doggy companion and will definitely not be suited to being left home alone days at a time. Given her disposition to anxiety, a local adoption (Canberra) would be advisable to enable a gradual transition to her new home environment.

Lovely Lucy will be the love of your life.

Billy (Homed)

Billy is kindly sponsored by Rogan & Katrina.

“Hi my name is Billy and I am patiently waiting for my forever home. I am a good natured boy and fancy myself a bit of a cassanova. I’m the sort of guy you want to take to the movies and sit in the back row so we can cuddle and smooch…ok , so you can’t actually take me to the movies, but I can do the same thing at your place. Got a sofa? That’ll do! When I’m not busily cuddling I love to play and I love to show off my zooming capabilities when I’m in one of the runs. I walk pretty well on the lead  (you can take the lead ladies I don’t mind) and I’m good for a nap after one of them. I’m very good with kiddies, they are my kind of people – they throw toys for me, don’t mind rolling in the grass, and  getting a bit dirty. There are these things called cats which I get a bit too excited about so the humans reckon I am better off without them. But I heard there are plenty of people that think they are better off not having them in the house either. Are you one of those? You are! Well get in touch with the volunteers at GR and come and meet me, I’m waiting!   info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Coco (Homed)

Coco is kindly sponsored by Nicole & Fiona.

 

“Enchante I am Coco and I am as sleek and elegant as my namesake! I’m looking for a home that will look past the fact I am “just another” black greyhound and love me for who I am. I don’t know why black dogs aren’t as popular – don’t people know that black goes with everything?! And in any case, your personality is your most vital accessory, and I have a wonderful happy personality if I do say so myself. I’m looking for a family that will indulge me with a warm jacket for the winter (it doesn’t have to be the latest designs as long as it is warm!) a comfy bed and a couch to stretch out my elegant limbs. Greyhounds are the supermodels of the canine world you know – would you like one at your house? You would! Then get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Chanel

Hello, mon petit chou I’m Chanel and I’m looking for my forever home! It doesn’t have to be the most fashionable home around, any warm place with a comfy couch will do, I’m not that fussy. I am an excellent kisser (European style a kiss on each cheek darlings) and I know how to have fun – I’m not afraid of getting my paws muddy in the name of adventure and I’m sure I look stylish while I’m doing it. I was told that at least I had four matching muddy socks, I guess some people don’t know the lengths we go to in the name of experimenting for fashion! Read More »
