“My name is Ava and I am a petite black girl who is looking for some stability in my life. I am a little lost at the moment as I was surrendered when my owner passed away.

I’m looking for a home with a doggy friend to keep me company, a comfy couch, and a lot of love. If you think you might just have room for me at your place contact the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Katniss (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

Katniss is proudly sponsored by Jillian.

 

“I’m Katniss and like my namesake Katniss Everdeen I’m excellent at foraging (off the bench for toast), hunting (for the comfiest spot on the lounge) and survival (I’m a greyhound, I’m part of the 5% that make it to the end of my racing career and look for a home!) Unlike my namesake I am quite shy at first, and hopeless at being on my own. Did I mention I get along with kitties and small dogs? I am good with small humans but younger noisy kiddies might be a bit much for me so I would be best in a home with older children. I’m looking for somewhere that will have a friendly confident doggy to keep me company and improve my confidence in new situations. I’m an excellent snuggler, good at kisses, and waiting patiently for my perfect match. If you think you might just have room for me at your place contact the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Katniss is:

  • DOB: Approx 2 years old
  • Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • Adoption Cost:$350
  • Cat Tolerant: Yes
  • Small Dog Tolerant: Yes
  • Child Friendly: Yes – but would suit older children as she can be timid around loud noises/lots of activity
  • Located: Sydney

Rigby (Homed)

Rigby is kindly sponsored by Danielle & Carol.

Hello I’m Rigby – a handsome goofball looking for my forever couch! I love spending time with the volunteers playing with toys, quick zoomies, long naps, and big cuddles. I might be all stripey like my namesake Rigby Racoon but that’s about as far as it gets – I’m a graceful greyhound after all! I would suit a home without small fluffies but I love humans in various sizes as long as they give me attention! I’m still a pup really so I would love a home that has a bit of room for me to run around in, and a family that will take me out and about to learn all about life as a pet. If you are interested in me or any of my friends contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

We are very grateful to have such wonderful vets close by that have made a huge difference to the hounds, and willing to try just about anything!

This year they are supporting us again with their Christmas appeal. You can leave a gift for the houndies, or make a donation and place a bauble on their tree. Just pop in to the clinic 703 Winsdor Rd Vineyard or call (02) 9627 1257.

Katharine (Homed)

Katharine is currently in foster with Corinne and doggy foster brother Bond.

Katharine has been living in a home and is well acquainted with being a pet. She could not stay where she is as she is unfortunately not cat friendly. She is people and dog friendly though, and is great with kids!  She is a low maintenance very sweet natured girl, who adores cuddles and is lovely to walk.  She is playful and loves squeaky toys and playing fetch.  Her favourite place to sleep is on the lounge on your lap and is often found belly up and very comfy.  We have it on good authority she fancies herself as a taste tester as she is an excellent counter surfer! This won’t be a problem if no food is left out for inquisitive snouts.   She is a happy girl who needs a loving home.

Her foster family writes “What a friendly, cuddly and playful girl.  She is very eager to say hello to all the neighbourhood dogs and children and gets very excited to go for her morning and afternoon walks.  She loves to play fetch, and gets really excited about outrunning Bond, even if he’s almost a third bigger than her.  When on a walk, her favourite thing to do is look as far as she can and see if she can spot a bunny. When satisfied that all the bunnies are gone, she’s happy to turn around and head back home for breakfast or dinner.  If you don’t mind a couch surfing dog, she’ll warm up a spot but is also very respectful and will learn quickly where she should not lie down.  She’s an early riser and up with daylight so best you be the kind of person who likes a morning walk.”

If you think you might have the perfect home and lap for Katharine please contact us! info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Hendrix (Homed)

Hendrix is kindly sponsored by Jenny.

 

“I’m Hendrix and I’m  and ready to roll anytime you like! With my adventurous spirit and charisma many will look past me as I’m just a bit misunderstood… I can’t help wanting to enjoy life’s ride and take whatever’s on offer, I’m young and carefree! Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good time, but I’m just as good  to lay back and groove on a rainy day with you if you’ll let me. I just need somebody who understands me. I promise I’ll be a good boy, I’ll give you all the love in the world and then some more…we can take walks in the park together, go for fun runs, and I heard watching movies is just the thing to do on a couch.  If you’ve got a spare seat at your place and a big enough heart to take on a handsome but often overlooked black boy like me please get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Jagger here is one of three young brothers that have arrived at GR.

“I’m Jagger and I like to think of myself as the frontman when it comes to a bit of good hearted mischief! I like good times, fun times, playtimes, and cuddletimes. I’m a mover and a shaker and being so young I have my whole life ahead of me. What I’m after is somebody who will gimme some shelter, a bit of guidance, and always be ready for an adventure – I have a nose for that, just follow my lead! If you think you might be the one who will be charmed by my good looks and loving, then you need to give my managers a call! Email the team info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Cricket (Homed)

 

Cricket is sponsored by Nina, Luke & Michele.

“My name is Cricket and if you’re a cricket fan, have you ever thought about having your own greyhound named Cricket? If ever there was a dog to match your summer I am the one! I love playing games in the (cricket) runs, and having a splash in the pool to cool off afterwards. I am very good natured and affectionate, I might not be able to bat  or bowl, but if you do it for me I’m sure I will win you the fastest runs as I gleefully bound down the grassy pitch. (Editor’s Note: Whether or not he runs between your particular game’s stumps or keeps going to someone else’s remains to be seen… perhaps just keep him as a fielder) For a serious game I will be happy to accept the post as the twelfth man on the sidelines ensuring the couch doesn’t fly away, and sampling afternoon tea. This is a very important and underrated job! I don’t really like cats,but if felines aren’t your ball game either you may have found your perfect match! I would be best suited to a home without any other dogs – I like being the centre of attention just like other sports celebrities. Did I mention I’ve been to a few stalls with the volunteers? Everybody loves me – I just wish one of you would take me home!”

If Cricket sounds like the greyhound for you please get in touch info@greyhoundrescue.com.au
