Lima (puppy) (Homed)

 

Lima (now Polly) has been officially adopted by Stella and Pete in the Blue Mountains!

Lima is an adorable little black greyhound girl puppy aged at only 10/11 weeks! She has 5 toes on one paw, as oppose to the usual 4. So her half Filipino foster carer named her Lima, as it means 5 in Filipino!

So far, Lima has demonstrated she is a fast learner and a little quieter than the previous puppies we have had come into our care. This may change as she gets older and more confident but she is currently being trained and encouraged to ‘be calm’ on her bed/mat/crate. She has responded well to positive reinforcement making it easy to train her. She is in foster with another young greyhound and they get on exceptionally well, playing the well known greyhound game ‘bittey face’ and sleeping nose to nose when she is popped into her crate. Lima also co-exists with 2 little dogs who mind their own business and she has done well at leaving them be. She spends a lot of time with 2 young girls and has been wonderful with them so far.

This little delight, like all the puppies, will need to attend a good puppy school – which our behaviourist Bobby will be able to recommend in your area. They will also require consistent basic obedience training at home. Fear not! Lima will come with a puppy manual donated to us by Mali from well established dog training and walking business; See Spot Run.

Lima will be required to be desexed at 6 months of age, so it is requested that you are able to travel to one of our recommended vets or pay the surplus in desexing costs at a vet you trust. She will be ‘on trial’ until desexed due to policy that we will not rehome un-desexed dogs. She does not have ear tags so may not officially require the muzzle.

Please visit http://greyhoundrescue.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/GR-New-Adoption-and-Foster-Application.doc for the application form and email to peter@greyhoundrescue.com.au. The next step will be a house check and then a meeting may be arranged 🙂

If you think you are ready for the commitment of a little puppy and hope to stay in touch with us as she grows, We would LOVE to hear from you!

Lima is:

  • 10/11 weeks old (dob 5.3.14)
  • (to be) desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • adoption costs $450

Freda (homed)

Freda is being fostered by Danielle.

She is sponsored by Allan.
Freda is full of joy. She’s peaceful, loving and gentle.

Freda is quick to learn and quick to love: she’s gone from complete novice to expert at navigating stairs, she’s gotten along famously with our other greyhound, she’s proven to be very gentle with kids, and she makes a fantastic and dedicated hugger.

She will do anything for affection, and routinely puts her beautifully expressive face in your hand or on your lap for patting. She’s bouncy and youthful at times, but settles very easily.

She’d be perfect for a small apartment, and for anyone who wants a soulful little dog to come home to each evening.

Roxy (Homed)

 

Roxy is proudly sponsored by Jenny & Sid and has gone into foster with Jane in Canberra.

Cutie, Roxy is approximately 3 years old. She has made it to foster in Canberra and is ready and waiting for her forever home!

Miss Roxy – still looking for her leading man and forever home! Reminiscent of Sandra Bullock’s FBI agent character in Miss Congeniality, she’s fit and confident but finds it a slight task to get along with other non-greyhounds.

“You see” said Miss Roxy, “I’ve never really had much exposure to dogs other than greyhounds, so my social skills are a little lacking.” Gossip Hound certainly noted that Miss Roxy gets rather excited when seeing some dogs. Miss Roxy does show potential to overcome her excitement however and excels in every meeting!

But, there is also the totally loving side to her that loves to snuggle (preferably on the bed!). She is a great master of the roach and would love the opportunity to show you in her forever home. She resides in a foster home with another greyhound and copes well whilst foster mummy goes to work.

We are certain, like Gracie Lou Freebody, Miss Roxy becomes our new Miss Congeniality.

Email info@greyhoundrescue.com.au to meet Miss Roxy!

Rocky (adopted)

Rocky4
Rocky1
Look at those eyes!
Rocky is 3 years old and is a friendly, affectionate and loving boy who wants nothing more than to have a family to call his own. Rocky is a little shy at first and appears to not be used to lots of human contact or affection, but that’s soon to change.  Rocky wants to be loved and, given the opportunity, he will make the ideal companion for a number of family situations.  He is a little worse for wear in appearance, but his condition will improve soon with some good meals and TLC.  He is small for a boy and  has an attractive black coat which will shine and glisten once his condition improves.  Rocky wants a long term, kind home where he will be included in family activities, be given regular exercise and most importantly lots of love.
DOB: 27.07.10
Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heart worm tested and treated.
Cat friendly: yes
