Dog Park Etiquette

By Amy Wakley-Ahearn

Off-leash dog parks can be a great way to socialise your pooch. They provide an opportunity for your pet to run around with other dogs, experience a variety of smells and sounds and generally enjoy themselves. And they give you a chance to meet other dog lovers and have a bit of a chat.

Like all social things, there’s a bit of etiquette involved. Read More »

Tiger (on trial)

Hi! I’m Tiger. The first thing you’ll notice about me is my very handsome black brindle coat – but don’t stop there, I’m also a lovely sweet-natured boy with plenty of cuddles to give! Other dogs aren’t a problem for me either – I’ve been very friendly with all of the other hounds I’ve met so far. And at just two years old I’m still a baby with a long life ahead of me and a whole wide world to explore.

Simba (homed)

Hi there, my name is Simba and I’m a very timid boy looking for love. I’m looking for a home with an somebody special who is patient and experienced with dogs and will spend time getting to know me and help me blossom into a more confident hound. I like going on walks with the other greyhounds here at Greyhound Rescue, they help to feel a bit more brave about the big wide world. I’ve really come a long way since I’ve come to the kennels so I’m really hoping to find a home that will let me become the confident dog I know I can be.

Babe (on trial)

Hi there, I’m Babe – they probably called me that for a good reason. I’m a sweet and petite little girl, and with my shiny black coat, I’m you know – a total babe! I’m calm and friendly, and when I’m not seeking out cuddles, my favourite thing is my toys – especially chasing balls. I’m friendly with most doggos that I’ve met so far, but sometimes I forget my manners when I meet new pooches… whoops… I’m still learning!
So, if you’ve got a doggy friend for me, I’d do best if they’re nice and calm.

Max (cat tolerant) (on trial)

Hi, I’m Max! I’m a super cuddly boy and will lean right in and get as close as can for MAXimum cuddle optimisation. I’m definitely always keen for a lean! And I don’t want to boast, but I’m always impeccably dressed in the glossiest black coat you’ve ever seen – you won’t want to stop patting me! Now, I do have to tell you that I’ve had a sore paw, but it’s gotten MUCH better since I’ve been in foster – I’m definitely on the mend. I’ve got excellent manners, I walk well on lead and I’m always super friendly to everyone and everything – even cats!

Hi there, I’m Julie! Now, don’t let my grey muzzle fool you – I’m still a young girl at only 4. What’re a few grey hairs anyway? I think they give me character! Speaking of character, I’ve got it in spades. I’m a happy girl who always has a bounce in her step and always keen to get out and about at the kennels so I can say ‘Hi’ to everyone. I’ve been polite with the other hounds I’ve met here at GR HQ, but anything small and fluffy is a bit too tempting for me so best if I don’t go to a home with any of those small doggos… BUT I’m great with small humans if you have any of those!

Pets of the Week – Axel and Diamond (bonded pair)

Hi! We’re Axel and Diamond – we’re brother and sister and we’ve spent our whole lives together so we’re incredibly close and need to find a home together. Wherever one of us is the other won’t be far away. You see, Diamond doesn’t see so well* so Axel is our… um… guide-hound! But that definitely doesn’t slow us down at all. We are both incredibly affectionate and just love hanging around people so we can get loads of cuddles. Oh, and toys – we love them! There’s nothing better than a good run and a play with our favourite plush toys. We’re both just all around chilled out hounds that get along with other dogs big and small and kiddies too!

April is Adopt a Greyhound Month!


April is ‘Adopt-a-Greyhound Month’, and the perfect time to welcome one of these adorable couch potatoes into your household.

Cheeky Max, pictured, is just one of these greyhounds in need of a loving home. A former racer, this affectionate boy today loves nothing more than a good old cuddle, not to mention the occasional pile of laundry to climb upon and snooze the day away.

During April, Greyhound Rescue is offering a discounted adoption fee of just $250 instead of $350 per hound. With this important fee, we can pay for these beautiful dogs to have a full health check and be de-sexed, vaccinated and heartworm tested.

If you’re interested in adopting a greyhound this April, please complete our application form. The information you provide helps us match individual greyhounds with the best possible household for them, hopefully ensuring a perfect match each time.

We are a registered charity and rely solely on donations, which are tax-deductible. If you’re unable to adopt, foster a dog, or physically volunteer, why not consider sponsoring a hound, or purchasing some of our merchandise? Every cent helps us find more greyhounds loving homes all year round.
