How lazy can you get? I’ll have my snack while having a nap says Miss Penny here. Another black girl from the pound Penny is only a newbie so we are still getting to know her. But judging by this photo, she’s a lady of leisure!

Opal (Homed)

Opal is happy to be sponsored by Amanda!

Opal is a beautiful black girl that is currently in our overflow kennels at Londonderry that is sure to prance her way into your heart. On our first acquaintance with her she was reserved and quite shy. However, now that she is more settled and confident, she is a lot more exuberant! Opal loves human company and enjoys a game of chase or a splash in the wading pool or water tub. After a second cat test she has decided she would rather not play nicely with them,but she would still make a wonderful addition to a family without small fluffies.

She has loads of energy but then once she has had a play, she is just as pleased to be snuggling and cuddling with her favourite humans.  A beautiful soul, Opal will provide loads of joy and happiness to her new family and is sure to also bring lots of laughs to the home.
Food motivated, and willing to do almost anything for a treat, any further training should be simple. She’s an absolute delight to spend time with and will make the most loving, playful and wonderful companion anyone could ever ask for in a greyhound.

If you are interested in busting Opal out of the kennels either for a forever home or as your foster furkid, we would love you to contact us. Any questions, please get in touch directly with us rather than in the comments below so we can answer you as quickly as possible:  info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Luke (Homed)

 

Luke is grateful to Ross for his sponsorship.

Luke is an extremely handsome blue and white boy with a lovely face and super-soft lovely coat Luke is loving being out of the kennels and into foster care with his foster parents and two other greyhound friends.  He is one of the happiest greyhounds you could met – his face literally lights up when people pay attention to him and give him a kind word or gentle pat.  Luke is house trained, walks nicely on lead and sleeps quietly through the night – he is a very easy boy to have in any home situation. He also travels beautifully in the car if you are a family that does a lot of road trips.  Luke is only three years oldwith plenty of life and love to give his forever family. If you have some spare room on the couch for young Luke we would be thrilled to hear from you!

Booney (Homed)

Booney is proudly sponsored by Sandra Davidson, thankyou Sandra!!

Booney is a  handsome black beauty. His coat is beautifully glossy and he is quite a handsome chap! Since we’re sure you’re already won on his looks but what about his personality? Booney is a loveable goof and and likes clowning around – he will zoom towards you and just when you think he will cannon into you he swerves away laughing at the neat trick he just pulled! He prances around during playtime and you just know he is enjoying every minute. He loves playing with toys and great with kids – but because he’s a ball of energy would be best with kiddos over 5.

If you think you might have the perfect home for  a clown to brighten up your life please contact us! info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Thunder (Homed)

Thunder has been adopted by Verity and Aaron!

Thunder is a a solid handsome  fellow just like the god of thunder Thor himself. He is a curious boy that has radar ears that listen out for everything, there is little doubt he won’t hear the rustle of a treat packet or the opening of a fridge!  A bit of a show off he makes sure you’re watching to see just how good he is when he thunders past with glee doing a zoom.  Despite his solid god like presence he is quite gentle with humans (not with cats) and adores a cuddle and scratch when he’s finished his display. He would best suit a home with children over 12. He prefers to keep company of those of his own stature so a home without small fluffies or dogs would be best. If you think you might have room for Thunder and can cope with being a mere human in his presence we would love to hear from you! info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Blackie (Homed)

Blackie is proudly sponsored by Shelley Tinworth & Belinda Evernden.

Blackie is a gorgeous black beauty. She arrived from the same trainer who sent us 3 blue fawns – Katie, Lizzie and Bluey (now Kaden). This girl is just fun personified on four legs! She adores showing off and play stalking our volunteers around the runs, has plenty of personality, and is full of joy. That doesn’t mean to say she isn’t as joyful about lazing around, she’s good at that too like any typical greyhound. You cannot be unhappy being around this girl!  If you would like a bundle of fun and joy in your house we would love you to contact us if you would like to foster or adopt.

Please email info@greyhoundrescue.com.au directly rather than in the comments so that we can answer you as quickly as possible.

Susannah (Homed)

Thanks Jordan for sponsoring Susannah!

Susannah is a a golden oldie. At over 10 years of age she more than deserves to live out her twilight years with all the love and affection anyone can give to her and the comfiest couch available! She is a lovely friendly girl who might be a little stiff in her back legs but once she gets moving she walks well on the lead. She is gentle to humans but alas not to small fluffies. She is in need of a lot of TLC – kennels is no place for this lady and we need to bust her out into a foster or forever home ASAP. If you can open your heart and home to this beautiful girl please contact us. Any questions please get in touch directly and not in the comments section please, so we can answer you as quickly as possible info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Cooper (Homed)

Meet Cooper. He is being sponsored by Shelley.

Cooper is now in foster waiting patiently for his forever home in Canberra. This is what the Canberra crew have to say about him:

Cooper is a shining example of everything that is wonderful about the greyhound breed. He is a dignified, graceful and extremely gentle  ‘velcro-dog’ who follows us around the house seeking cuddles. he is  perfect on lead, completely house trained and can last for 12 hours  without a bathroom break – I wish I could do that! When his ears are  rubbed his teeth chatter with utter ecstasy and he makes a little  sound like he is purring – it is soooo cute! Cooper gets along really  well with medium and large canine friends at the dog park but is still  learning about little dogs … he’s fine if they are white or black  but seems to think that grey dogs are rabbits!  I have fostered a lot  of greyhounds in my time and it’s a big call … but I am going to say  that Cooper may very well be the very best dog we’ve ever fostered – he’s a charming, perfectly mannered house guest who wants nothing more  than to please his humans.  Because of his very gentle and respectful nature, I’d feel comfortable homing Cooper with very young children but he would suit a wide range of family situations.”

Cooper is:

  • DOB: 15.3.10
  • Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated.
  • Not cat friendly

Fred (adopted)

Thanks Vera for sponsoring this sweet boy.

 

Fred is a young (under two), delightful smaller boy who wants nothing more than cuddles and kisses from his humans. He is extremely easy-going and would fit into a wide range of family situations.  As he is so gentle and calm, he would also suit homes with young children. He gets along beautifully with all dogs big and small and has a very low prey drive, although he showed a little too much interest in cats to be considered ‘cat safe’.  Fred is adored by all those who meet him, especially because he does the cutest little kissing-nibbles when he meets a new person!  Freddie is house-trained, sleeps quietly through the night (on his foster Mummy’s bed!) and walks perfectly on lead. If we had to describe Fred in one word, it would be ‘adorable’.

  • DOB: Under two

Cindy (Homed)

 

Thanks Sarahann for sponsoring Cindy.

Cindy is one of the happiest dogs you will ever meet – she literally jumps for joy when she greets you, and has a gorgeous personality. Because she is a bit more energetic than most greys she would be best suited to a home with older children rather than the littlies. She adores belly rubs and will lie on her back for you to tickle her tummy – and she will keep lying there until she is ready for you to stop!  Black with little bits of white, she loves her walks and cuddles and gets on well with the other girls and boys at the kennels. She has been in a home and is already house trained too! If you would like to meet Cindy and think you are up to the task of being her belly masseur we would love to hear from you!
