Skye (greyhound cross) (homed)

Skye, now Blue has found her forever home with Maureen and family!

This gorgeous girl was rescued from a pound where they feared she would get stolen – just look at her face and you will see why. She is a stunning looking girl and yes, she is a cross which means no muzzle for her! She is yet to be tested with cats but without any greyhound training she may be suitable with cats.

Kennel life is not for her, we think she was a pet being a cross so she does not deserve to wait in kennels.

One of our kennel volunteers say “Skye is just a young dog, who was a pet until recently (I think by her condition). She talks to you, only wants to be with you and is so much fun once you start to play with her. She loves to fetch and play and is very friendly with the other dogs.”

Please get in touch if you think you can foster or adopt Skye, we think she is dearly missing family life…

Skye is:

* desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated

* located Sydney

* adoption costs $300

Nelson (homed)

YIPEEE! Nelson has found his home with foster mumma Kerrie and family! So very happy for this chap 🙂 Thanks Kerrie!!!

Handsome 5 year old Nelson is now in foster care with Kerrie and her hound Sandy and lab Nelly in Nambucca Heads on the mid North coast of NSW. Nelson is child and small dog friendly and this makes him a super catch! Kerrie reports:

“What can I say, beautiful Nelson is such a big sweetie. In only a few weeks he’s come from having no idea about anything, to being toilet trained, relaxing, being nice and calm on walks, and getting the hang of stairs. He is a gentleman when it comes to food, beautifully chewing up chicken frames, chicken necks and pigs ears. Clipping nails is not an issue, he will stand almost falling asleep while I do them.

He loves meeting any kind of dog, big or small, and ADORES people, he will sidle up to anyone for a pat or cuddle, kids or adult. He’s happy to sleep on his bed, on the lounge, or on my bed! I haven’t heard him bark yet, or whinge. LOVES squeaky toys and hasn’t destroyed any yet! Whoever gives a forever home to Nelson will have themselves a loving, loyal gorgeous boy who thrives on being part of a family. His half an ear and missing toenail on one foot make him extremely unique and even more special”.

He is calm around children of all ages and would be happiest in a home with lots of human company as well as a doggy friend.

Nelson is:

*  5 years old(dob Oct 2007)

*  desexed

*  micochipped

*  vaccinated

*  heartworm tested and treated

*  costs $300

Sallianne (homed)

Sallianne has found her forever home with Margaret!

Sallianne is one of three sweet female greyhounds in Victoria, whos breeding services were no longer required. Thankfully with the help of a greyhound lover called Tracy they have made their way to us here in Sydney, with all the rescues in Victoria full. Sallianne was originally Sally but with another black Sally in our kennels we thought it might get a bit confusing for our volunteers!

Sallianne is a gorgeous looking black beauty who is very laid back. Just like every other greyhound, she loves those cuddles! She has not been tested with cats but was not fussed about spending time with some caveliers.

Although her birthday is the same as Nicky and is also a black beauty, they are not sisters. Sisters schmisters, I am sure they would make a greyt pair for those looking for 2!

At nearly 8 years old, it is time for Sallianne to find that furever home. She too, as been a mum and deserves to live out the rest of her life in a loving home. Greyhounds live to be about 14-15 so don’t let the age put you off! If you can give her a temporary home or better yet, a forever home, we would love to hear from you!

Sallianne is:

* 8 years old (dob Mar 05)

* desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated

* located – Sydney

* adoption costs $300

*not cat friendly but shown no interest around small to medium sized dogs

Jade (cat friendly) (homed)

Jade has found her forever home with a cat, chickens and a wonderful family.

Her foster says the following about her:

“We are into our second week with Jade in foster care. She has been delightful from day one. She is quiet, intelligent and cooperative. It seems she was already house trained. We have had no toileting accidents and she goes to the door when she wants to go out. She sleeps through the night without a problem. We have put a dog bed in our bedroom and she has learned to stay on it through the night. She wears her fleece pyjamas to keep warm. At other times we allow her onto our bed for a cuddle but she is content on her own bed when the lights go out.

She is indoors most of the day too, although we go out for a few short walks and sometimes a “zoomie” with our whippet. Our whippet has never met a dog who could keep up with her before and they have fun together.

Jade is a cat lover and our cat loves her too. Our cat rubs around Jade’s legs, under her belly, and lays with her in the sun. They bump noses regularly and seem to be good friends. I suspect that Jade has lived with cats before as she knew how to behave from the first introduction. When we go out we are totally confident leaving Jade, our whippet and our cat all locked inside together. So far, the longest time spent “home alone” has been 5 hours but I am confident that she could cope with a longer time.

When Jade arrived she was very keen for human company. If we went outdoors, leaving her in, she whimpered. She settled after a couple of days though and now seems fine. If she were to be adopted by a working couple then I would suggest that she start on a Friday night, so that she could settle over the weekend and be ready to be left by Monday. She seems to love everyone and has gone to anyone who has been to our house, whether our friends, neighbours or delivery people. We think she would settle quite comfortably with anyone who treated her nicely.

We’ve been brushing her to get rid of her heavy coat. She is looking glossy now and not shedding much fur.

As time has gone on Jade has seemed to relax more and become a little more playful. She loves a squeaky hamburger that we have here and late afternoon is the time for a bounce, whether indoors or out. She plays with our whippet but they lay around together most of the day.

Jade is a very sensible dog and will cooperate once she understands what we want. She has learned to wait to have her feet wiped when coming inside and is starting to respond to her name. I don’t think she had any idea that she was called Jade when we first brought her home. She is happy to travel in the car and will hop into the back whenever it is opened. All in all, fostering Jade has been very easy.”

Please contact us if Jade sounds like the one for you!

Jade is:

* 3 years old (dob 18/3/09)

* desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated

* adoption costs $300

* located Sydney

Jackie (JJ) (homed)

Jackie has found her home with Peter and Ellen!!

Beautiful dark brindle girl Jackie has been in foster care with Mike and family for the last 6 weeks. Here is what he has to say about her: “Jackie (or or “JJ” as we call her) is a beautiful 3 year old girl who has been in foster care in our home for the past 6 weeks. She is fantastic with children (often falls asleep on the kids’ beds!) and would suit a family with a male dog (of any size). Like most greys she is a couch potato, and loves to lie around the house 90% of the day and is toilet trained. She has some minor sight issues which are easily maintained with daily ointment, and a slight pain in her right rear foot, which only bothers her whilst running.  With a fantastic temperament and being a stunning girl, anyone would be lucky to have her”.

As you can see from the photos with Tash she loves a cuddle! Jackie also loves her food, so any further training should be simple as she is very food focused.  One of her favourite pastimes is playing in the wading pool; she’s a real water baby!  She would be sure to love adventures at the beach, the local river or simply just to have a wading pool of her own in her new home.

Easy to handle, well behaved and a pleasure to spend time with, Jackie will make an ideal companion dog.  She is not cat friendly and lives with small dogs but it is not advisable for JJ to be let off lead with small dogs around.

If you believe you can provide Jackie with the home she so deserves, please contact us.

Jackie is:

  • 3 years old (dob Sept 09)
  • desexed, microchipped, heartworm tested and treated, vaccinated
  • located – Sydney
  • adoption cost $300

Frankie (cat friendly) (homed)

Frankie has found his forever home with Lindsay and fam!!!

Frankie, what sweet greyhound he is. Right now, he may not look as pretty as the glossy blues or sandy fawns but his brown coat will turn into a gorgeous glossy black. All he needs is his loving home and lots of sardines!

Frankie is a real soft soul, a little quieter than your average male. His personality may blossum once he finds his foster or forever home. For those of you that blend into the background, Frankie may be the one for you. He does not wear his personality out on his sleeve, but please don’t let this put him past you. Admittedly, he loves his 2 minute zoomie but when he’s done he just wants cuddles and bed!

Get in touch if you can offer Frankie his forever home. He is super cat friendly, allowing kittens to rub up against him!

He is in foster care with other greyhounds, kids and a cat.

Frankie is:

* 4 years old (dob July 08)

* desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated

* located – Sydney

* adoption costs $300
