Ollie (Homed)


Ollie is kindly sponsored by Carol.

He is currently in foster in Canberra and this is what his foster carer says:

“If Ollie was a human he would be the quintessential English jolly- slightly portly, fond of a cheeky tipple and with a wicked sense of humour.

With his racing days behind him, Ollie uses his six remaining teeth to gum heartily on his kibble, slobber on all available toys and to crack his trademark gap-tooth smile. With plenty of spunk left, Ollie easily keeps up with his much younger canine foster brother, and is even very helpful around the house- he transports pillows, blankets, socks and even the occasional bra from room to room with flair and gusto.

He loves cuddles, ear scratches, the sound of your voice and (apparently) the Sydney Swans…and he LOVED his photo shoot with the wonderful Robyn Bromley so much, he couldn’t stop smiling! He is also great with children and other greys, but prefers not to mingle with cats or small dogs.

He has a minor condition which the vets believe to be Discoid Lupus, which causes him no discomfort in his day to day life and does not require medication – it only causes an occasional lost toenail! He will need some more teeth extracted at some point, but any costs relating to his future teeth extractions and the lupus will be kindly covered by Greyhound Rescue.

Ollie is currently in foster care in Canberra and has been patiently waiting for a good while now, so if you think you could give this charming old retiree his “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”, please get in contact.
