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.”

Proton (homed)

 

Proton is sponsored by Karen!

Proton arrived with his sister Sue, and comes from the same property as Aron and Vonne. If tall dark and handsome is your style then Proton is your man! He is good natured and playful, is an excellent “leaner” and we discovered he can also sit! A gentle giant he is getting much more settled being walked on the lead but with so much to space to see and sniff at GR’s new property you can hardly blame a lad for being a bit excited when he first gets out of the kennel in the morning! We think this gentle giant will settle into home life quite easily – a boy like Proton is sure to attract himself to your neutron-like sofa and make sure it doesn’t fly away!  If you are interested in Proton please contact us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Macy (Cat Tolerant) (Homed

Macy is a very special 5 year old who was rescued from a trainer in Nowra. When this beautiful black girl first arrived she found life in a new home a little overwhelming and was extremely timid and anxious. Over time she has thrived being with people who love her. She’s become a clever, affectionate dog that is happiest when she’s close to her humans (just not too close if she’s asleep!). Macy likes a place to call her own and would really benefit from a home where she could have a quiet spot that she can retreat to when it all gets a little bit too much.

She loves meeting new people, knows basic commands and is definitely food motivated. She is very good on the lead and likes slow, calm walks along the river and lazy afternoons on her bed, but will do occasional zoomies at the dog park. She is friendly to indoor cats and currently lives with a chubby black moggie called Angel. Macy sleeps well through the night and is well behaved on car trips.

She would thrive with an owner who can put in some extra time with her in a peaceful place and give her clear boundaries.

Macy is:

  • 5 years old
  • desexed microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • Located in Sydney

Angus & Malcolm (Homed)

These two very sprightly but older greyhounds that have never been apart. They were surrendered to us as their owner could no longer keep them, and we would love to send them off to a loving home to spend their twilight years together. They have gone to Canberra for foster care where they have had a change of pace (and name).  Angus and Malcolm were previously known as Zorro & Brettly)

This is what the Canberra crew have to say about them:

“Like their namesake brothers Malcolm (black) and Angus Young (fawn and white) from the band AC/DC, these boys are the very best of friends and have never been apart. For this reason we would ideally love to place them in their forever home together. Bing a bonded pair and slightly older, they are listed as Sanctuary Hounds, which means their veterinary bills are covered by Greyhound Rescue for the rest of their lives.  Both boys are cuddly, lovely and gentle.  Malcolm is the most outgoing of the brothers and Angus is a little more shy but both love human company and follow their foster Mummy around the house looking for snuggles.  They are currently in foster care in with Ada’s little dog Max, girl greyhound Maude and the whole ”band’ seems to be getting along famously.

Both boys are house-trained, walk politely on lead and would suit a wide range of family situations. We’d love to see them homed with children as they would make wonderful family pets. They are also very good at giving kisses, and cuddling them is a bit like hugging your teddy bear as they are unusually quite furry greyhounds! To those about to adopt … we salute you!”

If you have it in your heart and home to give a couch to this pair of seniors we would love to hear from you. Any questions please contact us directly and not in the comments so we can get back to you ASAP. info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Angus and Malcolm are:

  • 7 years old (8 in Nov 2014)
  • desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • adoption cost: a donation please contact us for further details
  • located in Canberra

Duke (Homed)

Duke is Sponsored by Clyde, Deb & Jack!

“I’m Duke and if you’re lucky enough you might have got a kiss from me when I was being a GR ambassador at the Hawkesbury Show recently! I love to be around people, especially kiddies who pay special attention to my velvety ears and tell me how handsome I am (this is very new to me, and I like getting attention!) and I had lots of little princesses give me smooches. I am quite sure after all those kisses I must have turned into a Prince! I am very gentle with people but small fluffy dogs and their fluffy friends called cats get me a bit too excited, so it would be best if my new family didn’t have either of those. I get along very well with other houndies and medium sized dogs, I am quite a charmer with the lady hounds. I love playtimes, walks, and just hanging out while humans do whatever they need to. I heard there are people who like going for walks and going places but don’t have a dog – can you believe it? They just aren’t doing it right without a dog! Wait…you’re one of those people? Let me help you to do your walks right. Get in touch with the volunteers at GR, and I just might be your perfect match!”

Joy (Homed)

Joy is Sponsored by Michele!

Her foster carer says:

“If you want a little velcro love bug, Joy is your girl. She has the most adorable little face and loves to smile at you while she’s snuggling on the couch.  I’m sure she gets most of her exercise following her human from room to room.  She has loads of energy for a 9 year old, but is happy to snuggle down for some serious couch time in the evening.  She is used to her foster mum being away for long hours at work.  She is used to having a door open to the back yard, so will need a little reminding about not weeing in the house if there is no doggie door (but we are working on this as the weather gets colder in Canberra!)She is fearless! She has a tendency to barge straight through her foster brother Fergus, and sprawl over his feet on the bed!” If you would like to know more about Joy please contact us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Joy is:

  • 9 years old DOB TBC
  • desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
