William was adopted by Nicolle just before our website was launched and after William had spent quite some time in foster care. William is indeed a lucky boy to have found such a wonderful home, so many thanks to Nicolle for giving him that, although as Nicolle says, he has given much back in return.
Nicolle writes of William:
‘William is a beautiful boy, he just wants to be around me, he loves to curl up on his blanket while I type away on my laptop. He loves my flatmates and is now good at climbing the stairs to the upper levels of my townhouse. He loves the car and is a perfect gentleman on the lead, he loves other dogs, all sizes and even kids.
He is the most popular dog on the street and the kids think he is a horse. He gets lots of pats at my local coffee shop. Before William, I would never have thought about adopting a greyhound. I couldn’t resist his face . Greyhounds are misunderstood, they are couch potatoes that just love to be around people.
I am committed to spreading the word about these animals as wonderful house pets that don’t need a lot of space and pay you back three fold.
Our two ‘oldies’, Remy who is 10 years old in August and Tassie who was 10 years old last January have been given a wonderful home in Jindabyne by Lois who recently lost her beloved greyhound, Rusty. Thank you so much Lois for giving these greyhounds a new lease of life and with the two together they are good company for each other.
Many people cannot adopt two greyhounds for various reasons, but if you can then they do like each others company, especially if left alone and are wonderful companions for each other. Linda, at Cromer also adopted two beautiful black greyhounds, Chillie and Mooch, who are like two peas in a pod and Linda would not be without them. So a big thank you to Linda for giving Chilli and Mooch such a wonderful, caring home. A photo of Linda, Chilli and Mooch will appear as soon as we have overcome a technical difficulty!! The photo is here at last!!
Today, Saturday 4th July, we received two new greyhounds from the Pound. They are both beautiful, one is a white red fawn and the other is a white blue fawn and their details will appear as soon as we can get some photos taken. The only problem is that they will have to go into kennels as we do not have any room at home, so if anyone can foster them or one of them we would be most grateful, as kennel bills are mounting up.
We also have to thank Forestville Printing for helping us with some new business cards.
On Tuesday, 1st July, I drove Remy and Tassie, our two oldest greyhounds, to a wonderful new home in Jindabyne. Lois, their new owner, had recently lost a much loved greyhound and Remy’s ears reminded her of her beloved Rusty. So Remy’s big ears at last did him a big favour!! And one for Tassie as well!
This week end Paddy, the beautiful Blue Boy, has gone on a two week trial in Collaroy Plateau, yet another greyhound to hopefully find a home on the Northern Beaches. Most of the greyhound racing action takes place in the western parts of Sydney and it is only recently that people on the Northern Beaches have got to know the greyhound and what wonderful pets they make, after their racing days are over or perhaps never started. Balgowlah, Cromer, Killarney Heights, Collaroy Plateau, so what is the next suburb near the surf to realise what they are missing? However, it is not only the Northern Beaches that are wanting greyhounds as this week we are off to Jindabyne with a couple of oldies. So if you are reading this, keep the good news coming.
Our website is still in its infancy but we are slowly getting started and we would like to thank those of you who have visited the site already. We need to add more dogs and make alterations so please be patient during our teething stages.
The website is already helping us and Snoopy has found a home even before she was put up on the website!! And today, Roy, also not yet on the site has gone to a foster home from kennels. So thank you to Helen from Snoopy and to David and Janet from Roy and ourselves of course.
So far so good and we hope that you will return soon to find out what else has happened.
On Tuesday 30th June, Remy went on a two week trial, along with Tassie, in Jindabyne.
Remy had spent a lot of his life in kennels until one day he found a home where he had the luxury of lying on a lounge and he loved it. Unfortunately his new owner became sick and Remy landed back in kennels again.
Remy is 9 years old, very friendly with people and dogs, has lots of character which is enhanced by his big ears, likes to play and is looking for someone special to give this older boy the love and affection he so dearly deserves. He will certainly return that affection many times over and does not deserve to spend his last years in a kennel. Remy gets on well with both large and small dogs, walks easily on a lead and his favourite pastime is sleeping on the settee!!
On Tuesday 30th June, Tassie went on a two week trial along with Remy, in Jindabyne.
Tassie is a gentle, older greyhound who has much affection to give to someone. She has shown love and devotion to many litters of pups and is now due the same love and devotion in return. She has spent most of her life in kennels and deserves the luxury of a home for her remaining days.
Tassie’s name originates as she came from Tasmania. She gets on well with the dogs that she lives with, both large and small and even at the age of ten you should see her run across a field having a great time.
Biddy has found her forever home and is no longer available. Congratulations to Biddy, Cheryn and family at Panania.
Biddy has joined foster carer Mechelle. Biddy is a beautiful black girl who has lots and lots of character. She is a shy girl and takes a while to be comfortable around people but just loves to play with other dogs and as she is currently being fostered with two whippets, she is having the time of her life!! Biddy is a bit of a magpie and likes to collect things, usually putting them in the garden in her favourite spot without causing any damage, as illustrated by the missing TV controls found half buried in the garden, but still working!!! She is very affectionate, has lived with small dogs and is now proving to be cat friendly in her new foster home. Biddy is slim and at less than 27 kg she is lighter than the average girl greyhound, but she is still in excellent condition. However, the latest report is that Biddy is at last putting on a bit of weight and is now over 28 kg!!
- 2 years old (dob Feb 2007)

Meggie has found a permanent home with foster carers Joan and Alan in Maroubra. Meggie is a stunning Red Fawn and a most affectionate greyhound and deserves a second chance after finishing her racing career, for which papers are available. She gets on well with all the dogs that she lives with, both large and small, walks easily on a lead and likes to play. Meggie would be ideal in a family situation.
