Bumblebee (Bea Bea) (Homed)

Bumblebee (or Bea Bea as she is nicknamed) is a very lovely girl who is in need of some extra TLC so she is lucky to be in foster with Cindy in Canberra! this is what Cindy has to say about her foster kid.

“Dear Bea Bea  is a wonderful dog that will make some lucky person a wonderful companion! After many years of caring for litters of puppies, it is now her turn to be cared for and that isn’t difficult!
Bea Bea walks well on the lead, eats well, enjoys a snuggle and cuddle with her people. She would need an experienced and patient owner while she learns to build trust. Bea Bea has not been well socialised by her previous owners. As a consequence, she is a fickle lady who likes some dogs, but not others; so would best suit a home where she alone could keep an at home worker or retiree company. She has been exposed to children without interest or incident so visiting grandchildren should not be an issue; but she would best suit a calm home.
Bea Bea is a happy 8, is medically fit with plenty of play left. She is currently in foster in Canberra where she enjoys Ruben sandwiches and watching Woody Allen movies.
WARNING: Bea Bea has one of the fluffiest tails I have even seen!!! Owners may have the urge to spend many hours stroking her tail.”

Marj (homed)

Marj 1 Marj 2

Marj is kindly sponsored by  Gabrielle.


Marj is a black beauty who was surrendered from Victoria with Dottie. She is now in foster care in Canberra and doing very well, this is what the Canberra crew would like to say about her:

“Marj is a delightful, petite black girl who has been in foster with youngchildren and chooks and shows perfect manners towards both human and feathered friends. She very nearly passed her cat-test and has the potential to learn with a knowledgeable and patient owner and perhaps a bossy cat to show her the ropes.  She is wonderful on lead, sleeps quietly through the night has never had an accident inside (even before she was officially house-trained!) and is extremely affectionate and loving. Everyone who has met Marj has fallen completely in love – she’s a very special girl who deserves the very best of homes – but you’d better be quick because her foster Mummy Liz has fallen in love too!”

Mr Dottie (Homed)

Dotti is sponsored by Teresa!!

Mr Dottie here is a lovely black and white gentle giant with faint dots, making him look a bit like a “greymatian!” Dottie is a big fella with a big heart – he loves big cuddles, big walks, and big playtime running up and down the fence with fellow black and white kennel mates such as Murphy and Mike. He also like a really big sleep after all of that! He has a lovely temperament and is gentle like most greys.

Mr Dottie was lucky enough to be taken on a mini break with Melissa who says,

“He is such a gentle quiet boy. He has IMPECABLE manners. He was very good and let us bath him in the bath tub. He didn’t mind having his food bowl taken from him at all. He sleeps throughout the night out in the loungroom then came in each morning to the bedroom to see who’s ready for a game of cuddles and kisses and talkies.

Mr Dottie does a creepy smile which is soooo cute. He bares his teeth at you like he’s smiling. Hes just saying give me a kiss. 

He is very playful in the morning. Especially after going to the toilet. I always knew when he had just done a number 2 because he would do a zoomie into the lounge room and start doing bouncy zigzags.

Mr Dottie was very good in the car. He didn’t take much coaxing to hop in and out.

Mr Dottie is perfect on the lead. I really mean 10/10. He walks right next to your leg and never zigzags, or pulls. When you stop walking, he stops and stands patiently. He would be good for someone who was also managing a pram for this reason.

Mr Dottie does not like cats at all. Also with small fluffy dogs at the dog park he showed a little too much interest. I was not comfortable letting him off leash. I beleive that with some doggy training this can be worked on and improved though.

He is a very loving dog and wants to be with someone permanently. He is like a shadow, never letting you out of his sight. Except for bedtime when he was very good and slept in loungeroom. Never visiting the bedroom till a respectful hour.

He loves the couch and will do anything for a belly rub. 

Another great thing about Mr Dottie is that he does not mark his territory everywhere by peeing on everything. This was a nice suprise! Mr Dottie just does his business when he needs to. He really is a gentleman.

He is very clean and would never soil inside. 

The most beautiful thing is his puppy like playfulness when he sees you for the first time each morning. He’s the perfect mix of playful and quiet. He is not a barker.

Mr Dottie l Iikes sardine oil and Schmakos as treats. But the thing he likes most is cuddles and being close to you so he can make sure you are still there.”

Any questions please contact directly and not in the comments please so we can answer you as quickly as possible!

Hoover is grateful to Nina & Luke for sponsoring him.

Hoover the groover is a handsome boy with a gentle soul! Despite falling into the big black boy category he is cat friendly, good with small dogs, and people in general. One of our volunteers even tested him with geese and he wasn’t bothered at all.  He’s the kind of boy a young lady grey would want to take home to meet her mum, or maybe you would like him to meet yours? What a good catch this great all rounder will be! If you think this dog of perfection might be your type then we would love you to get in touch with us.

Fundraiser for young Zacharie

Adopt me :)

Please donate & share!

We are pleased to say we have covered our costs now for Zacharie and we thank each and every one of you that has donated to his surgery! He is on the mend and should be going well on all four pins in no time!

Early this April, we saved a sweet boy named Zacharie, who was surrendered because of an ‘injury’ that never healed properly. That ‘injury’, we had seen to and we found out that 3 of the 4 bones in his foot were broken and had not mended correctly. The weight of the paw causing him to hunch. A surgical option was presented by the wonderful vets at Queanbeyan Vet Hospital in ACT. The surgical specialists at Gunghalin Vet Hospital have offered a generous discount and their surgical specialists will mend his paw next month.

Even with these generous discounts, we have to pay in excess of $2000 so we need your help! If you can spare anything, we would be so grateful as you know we get no funding from the government that supports greyhound racing and the bills just keep on coming. Greyhound Rescue is not picky, and we strive to save all greyhounds that come our way no matter what disability they come with.

If you think you can help us, we would be so “greytful” and so would Zach!

A big thank you to one of our foster carers Kerrie, who’s wonderful parents have offered to care for him throughout the procedure and recovery. So much good effort and good will to help young sweet Zacharie!

Olimometer 2.52

Any donation can be made into our bank account and use the reference “ZACH OP”. Please include your name so we can thank you!

The bank account details are:

AccountName: Greyhound Rescue Inc

Zach thanks you for your support!!!

Timmy (Homed)

Timmy is sponsored by Christine  Ng, and has gone to foster in Canberra.

Timmy is a beautiful big boy who is a little  underweight right now. Once he puts on some condition, he will be one tall, solid and handsome man.

With a gorgeous white and black coat with attractive markings, Timmy is a good looking boy with lots to offer besides his boyish good looks.  He is an inquisitive dog who will want to be part of the family, included in family activities and spend time with his loved ones.  He thrives on attention, despite the fact he probably did not receive a great deal in his previous life, but he’s about to make up for it now.  He loves his food, so any training should come easy as he will work for treats.  An intelligent dog who is keen to learn, Timmy is keen to find a family who will give him regular exercise and ensure he is a cherished family member.
