Speedy

Hi there, I’m Speedy. Speedy by name and speedy by nature! I love a good zoomie or ten! So it’s pretty safe to say I’m looking for a home that has a nice big yard where I can zoom to my heart’s content. When I’m all zoomed out, I do love a good cuddle and a scratch. I’m a bit new to this whole being a pet caper, so it’s probably best that I’m an only dog for now while I learn what this whole being a pet business means. I’m sure it won’t take long though, I’m a speedy learner!

Stanley

Hi there, I’m Stanley or you can call me Stan the Man. Now, some people have accused me of being a ‘stage 5 clinger’ but I prefer the term ‘enthusiastic sidekick’. I literally just want to smother you with love. If you’re up for an adventure, I’m your guy – I just love getting out and about to explore. When it comes to other dogs, it’s best that I’m on my own for a little while so I can learn the ropes of pet life. I’m sure it won’t take long though!

Axel

Hi there, I’m Axel. I am fun loving and playful, and looking for a home with some room for me to stretch my legs and chase a ball. I can get a weeeee little bit excited when I play, so I would suit a family without very young children… but if you have some teenagers willing to play soccer with me, I’m happy to help them put in some practice! Toys are definitely a requirement, I would buy them in bulk for me if I were you… As I am a sporty type I’d definitely prefer a home with a backyard so I can stretch my legs and get in a good zoomie or two.

Diamond

Hi, I’m Diamond and my hobbies include snuggling in my PJs, snuggling in bed and well… just snuggling… being cosy is really my thing. I’m a sweet and affectionate girl that will always be super happy to see you. Now, I do have to let you know that I do have an ongoing condition with my eyes* but I can assure you that doesn’t slow me down at all… really, it’s probably the reason why I’m such a snuggly girl!

Jimmy

Hi! I’ve heard there are lots of famous people called Jimmy… Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Page, Jimmy Little, even a President… but you haven’t met the best of them yet. Oh, haven’t I introduced myself? That would be me, I’m Jimmy! Since I arrived at the kennels, I’ve been using my smooth moves and big brown eyes to win over the volunteers. I’m a sweet, affectionate and gentle boy. When I’m not lapping up attention, you’ll find me running around with a toy or enjoying a treat. I’m not too bad with other large dogs, but I’m a bit unsure of smaller kids and little dogs, it’s not that I don’t like them… I’ve just never met them before so maybe while I get used to them, best I don’t share my forever home with them.

Johnnie

Hi! I’m Johnnie, a cheeky sort of chap with model good looks! As you can see – I’m really ridiculously good looking and I have the best buns of steel you will ever see and I’m not afraid to show them off. When I’m not flaunting my assets, I love food… toys… food… and oh, did I mention toys? If you have either of those things, I’ll be your best friend forever. Now, when it comes to other dogs I’m not too phased by them, in fact, I mostly ignore them and prefer to hang out with my people and focus on my toys and food!

Charlie

Hi there, I’m Charlie and if tall, dark and handsome is your type – I might just be your guy! Now, the team at GR HQ seem to think I might be a little bit mischievous sometimes (pfffft)- but that’s half the fun, right? It’s true, I am a playful boy but I can also be pretty gentle and chilled out when I need to be. My favourite things are toys and food so if you have either of those at your place, I’ll be putty in your hands and ready to do whatever you say! Even though some people think I’m a bit cheeky, I’m quite well mannered with tiny humans and other dogs.

A big thank you to Innopets!

We’d love to thank Innopets for their generous donation of Lickimats and Throbizz balls for our enrichment program.

Paula, the lucky volunteer who got to distribute the toys said “The Lickimats were a hit, Kwazi had a few licks followed by prancing around with the Lickimat in his mouth as if he was showing it off to the world. The other hounds loved them, it kept them occupied and focused until the Lickmats were licked totally clean. The mats proved to be a great enrichment activity for the hounds.”

Enrichment activities are important for our hounds; it keeps their minds active and gives them something to do during the day. If you would like to donate some toys to our enrichment programs please get in touch.
