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.

Trippy (Homed)

Trippy is proudly sponsored by Michele.


Trippy is a gorgeous brindle girl who is sister to Belle. They came from the Hunter Valley. With a name like Trippy we can imagine this gal tripping across the stage floorboards, all eyes on her, admiring her for the starlet she is! You cannot go past this beauty with her amazing eyes, soft coat, and captivating personality. If she was a human she would be a Hollywood star!  She is too cool for cats, they just cramp her style. Admiring human fans however, have no option but to drop what they are doing for cuddles and pats. This girl has style and charisma, and at just 3 she is out of puppyhood but still has plenty of playfulness. A home with older kiddos would best suit her – if you would like to fall in love with her  she needs a foster or forever home, so please contact us! info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Trippy is:

  • 3 years old (dob 13.2.11)
  • desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated

Cheeky (Homed)

Cheeky has found her forever with Syd! A lady called Sue phoned to say that her 91 year old father, Syd had just lost his dog and he ‘had nothing to get out of bed for’ anymore  It so happened that we knew of a 10 year old Cheeky greyhound waiting for her forever home. He is so happy, loves Cheeky to bits and she has rejuvenated an already spritely Syd, giving him a new lease on life. Syd is now a great advocate for greyhounds so it’s a plus all around!!!

Cheeky is an older lady grey and is mumma to Bambi, Squeaky, and Brindy who have been rehomed through Greyhound Rescue. She is good around children and gentle although can be a bit excited on the lead. She is a beautiful loving lady who would adore a big comfy couch on which to live out her days. If you think you have the perfect home and can open your heart for Cheeky please contact us.

Reg (homed)

Reg is grateful to be sponsored by Jeannine & Greg.

He has now gone into foster with Sarah and David

Reg is a handsome blue and white boy with a shy and timid personality with new people. Once he has satisfied his curiosity and  gets to know you he is very affectionate and will do some zoomies for you. He also loves to be a cheeky boy with the people he knows well and play catch me if you can with our volunteers! He isn’t very keen on leaving his jacket off (perhaps he just wants to be a naturist and show off his handsome self!) He loves to be brushed and talked to gently, we think this fellow would love a peaceful comfy corner with a couch in a quieter household. If you think you have the zen garden (or just a zen couch will do!) for Reg we would love you to contact us and meet him. any questions please get in touch directly rather than in the comments so we can answer you as quickly as possible info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Phoenix (Homed)



Phoenix went into foster with Adrian and Victoria in Canberra with Tess their lovely greyhound. He has recently passed his test to be muzzle free in ACT! Congrats Phoenix!!! He stole their hearts and has won his piece of forever, he is there to stay. We do love a good foster fail!

Victoria his foster mum has written a great blurb: “Phoenix came to us on 23rd May from his previous foster carer Christine. Adrian and I have had Tess for over 4 months by then and naively believe that she’s a normal size greyhound. So when we drove 2 hours up North to pick Phoenix up, we were both surprised to see such a huge dog! But as big as he seems, he is also super gentle and calm on his way back, and farted all the way as a ‘warm’ greeting.

Tess (his foster sister greyhound) is a sweet sweet perfect girl who loves our attention but never too clingy. She’s quite happy to have her own space (usually the formal lounge) and lie around, or chew on some treats, and come whenever we call her. She also enjoys sitting in her own bed and observing us while chewing on her toys. As the COMPLETE OPPOSITE, Phoenix is obsessed with human. Sitting together in a room? NOT CLOSE ENOUGH. Sitting together on the couch? NOT CLOSE ENOUGH. A typically night at my place is spent like one of the cuddling photos above. What’s personal space? Who needs it anyways when you have an oversize soft heater. He makes us feel like we are the most important, beloved people in the world. There’s no getting sick of Vicki and Adrian EVER!! And even in the middle of sleep he would sometimes look up to us and look right into our eyes for minutes!

He loves nothing more than cuddles. On the occasion that the humans illegally occupy the couch (because hounds on the floor is strictly forbidden?!), he would bury his head in my stomach and show his neck for minutes, asking for a good neck scratch. He likes it almost as much as belly rubs. And be aware, Phoenix is the real ‘too much tongue’ kisser. He would lick all over my face and even try to nip on my cheek!! And of course face wash is never optional (nor voluntary), especially right after I put my moisturizer/make up on.

Phoenix is so big that when sleeping on the couch, his legs are hanging off the edge (or we are too small of humans to buy such a tiny couch?). And when doing the famous ‘greyhound roaching’ in the middle of a dream, he always fall off the couch. Then to walk off the embarrassment, he shakes his head, his tales, then approach to his big bed. Because he’s so huge and always selfishly sleep right in the middle of the couch, we humans have to claim our space sometimes. To avoid the trouble of relocation, he always look at us with big softy eyes before getting on the couch, and if no one disagree ( or that he notice ), he would claim the couch. If Adrian or I point at his bed, then bad luck mate. You should see the look on his face, it seemed like we denied him of food to survive.

He also has an adorable, or some may call it annoying habit of hoarding. Not that he would destroy things, he would simply hoard them. He hides Adrian’s shoe underneath the couch cushion, and as special as him, it’s always the right shoe. He is obsessed with my beanie and will try anything within his power to find it. And one he collects all of our belongs, he can finally happily curled up and sleep in peace. On top of these personal items (although to which person is arguable), he loves to push his treats underneath his blanket as well. Sadly most of these would be later stolen by his beloved sister Tess…”

If you would like this handsome gentleman in your life then please contact us at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Jaime (Homed)

Jamie is proudly sponsored by Kendall Bridges!!

He has now gone on trial with Denise and Robert in the blue mountains.

Jaime is a gorgeous black sooky boy who loves attention. If you pass him by without saying hello he will soon let you know! He never says no to a walk providing it’s not too wet (otherwise he’ll just stay in bed thank you very much!) He loves some quality one on one time, a tickle under the chin, a scratch behind the ears and a good cuddle. We don’t imagine he would find the job of snuggling on the couch with you too much of a bother!

Please email info@greyhoundrescue.com.au if you are interested in adopting a greyhound and saving a life!

Princess (cat friendly) (Homed)


Princess is proudly sponsored by Toni Denmeade.

Princess an arrival from West Wyalong Pound. She gorgeous blue brindle with a delightful nature.

Princess has gone to Jacky as a foster and Jacky writes the following:

“Princess is patient, gentle, loves cuddles and people. She has met my little dogs. All were a little wary, but have accepted each other very well.

Although Princess would love to play with the little dogs, she doesn’t quite know her own size and strength. I think she is better suited to a medium/big dog as a companion. Or, of course with you if you are at home to keep her company.

She is good on the lead and knows the word wait. She trys to do everything you right. She is absolutely wonderful company.

She loves her bed and loves her burn around. And of course loves her food.

She has sighted kangaroos, and rabbits, both hopping. Although she would have liked to chase them, she settled quickly when her attention was diverted. The horses are more interested in her, than she is of them.

She is beautiful! We all love her!”

Jennifer one of our volunteers who helps us with the photos says the following about her:

“She’s extremely sweet natured, very food foccussed and just loves any attention shown to her.  She sits on her bottom, just like a staffy, and looks quite odd, but very cute !  A lovely natured and affectionate girl, with a soft, silky coat – she’s a beautiful example of the breed.”

Princess is listed as cat friendly but suits an older or quieter indoor cat only. She is playful and gets excited when cats run around!

We would love to hear from you if you think you can give Princess a foster or forever home. Just look at her, how can you not 😉

Princess is:

  • 3 years old (dob June 2010)
  • desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • adoption costs $300
  • located Sydney
  • older or quieter cat friendly
