Marlo

Hi there, I’m Marlo!
I’ve been in my foster home a little while now, working hard, studying the art of being the perfect companion, and we all agree I’m definitely ready for a couch of my own now.
Here’s what my foster carers say:
‘Marlo is doing really, really well. He’s a little less agitated by cats now, and has actually really warmed to small dogs, and regularly says a friendly hello to a small fluffy dog next door. He loves going for walks around the big oval here, and also recently had a holiday where he spent three weeks hanging out with a lovely border collie! He loves eating and tries to sneak in to the ice cream whenever he gets a chance. One of his favourite things is coming outside for a pat when the fire is going. He also loves to stretch right out on the couch in front of the TV – and does this in his friends’ houses as well! He’s extremely calm and will stand for 30 minutes at a time next to someone, just to keep enjoying a pat.’
I’m an outgoing and fun-loving kind of guy with a bounce in my step. I love my toys and will play games with you over and over if you let me. Plus, if you scratch me in just the right place, my teeth will chatter with happiness!

A dog for Christmas?

We’ve all seen those cute photos on Instagram of adorable puppies wearing a big bow and sitting under the Christmas tree. But is getting a dog for Christmas a good idea? Yes and no! While you should NEVER get a dog as a gift without consulting the recipient, the Christmas break can be the perfect time to welcome a new dog. Read More »

Scooter

Hi, I’m Scooter! I’m just a big softie that loves a scratch and a cuddle and will follow you around everywhere… you never know where that extra cuddle might come from! I do enjoy a bit of a zoom around with my toys, I guess that’s why they call me Scooter. I’m also good with other large dogs, but they can’t be too small though – those small fluffy ones look like toys to me!

Volunteer of the Month – December

We’d like to introduce you to Lex, one of our dedicated volunteers who we are recognising as our ‘Volunteer of the Month’ for the month of December.

Our volunteers are the very backbone of what we do at GR. Without them, we could not possibly save and rehome as many greyhounds as we do. While every single one of our volunteers is important no matter how much they do whether hands-on on with the dogs or behind the scenes, every month we are introducing just one of them to you and acknowledging their amazing efforts. These volunteers have demonstrated exceptional passion, commitment, reliability, and cooperation to make GR what it is, and we thank them tremendously.

We had a chat to Lex to learn more about why she loves volunteering with Greyhound Rescue…

Nubi

Hi! I’m Nubi – I was named after the Egyptian god Anubis, but it’s such a big name for a young boy like me so I prefer to go by my nickname ‘Nubi’. It’s pretty fitting as I’m a bit of a newbie to this pet life, which is why I’m currently in foster learning the ropes… and I’m learning really quickly how good cuddles are!

As I’m I am still quite young and have little bit more energy to burn, I would be best suited to a home with a yard rather than an apartment so I can have a bit of a leg stretch and keep myself busy while you are out. I walk well on the lead and love going for long walks. So far, I get along well with other greyhounds but I’m a little bit too interested in anything small and fluffy.  I would suit a family without very young children, but if you have some teenagers I’d be a greyt companion.
