Pet of the Week – Bjorn

Hi there, I’m Bjorn. I arrived here at Greyhound Rescue in not the best condition but after loads of TLC here from the team at GR HQ I’m doing much better… you might say I’ve been Bjorn again even (hehe)! Because I had a rough start in life, I’ll be looking for an extra special home with an experienced family because I can be a little bit nervous about new things. Which means I’d love a home in a quiet neighbourhood with a yard where I can stretch my legs too. I think I’d like a home where I’m the only dog, but I’m happy to be home alone during the day. Besides that, I’m a very sweet boy and just a bit of a cutie with my little-upturned nose, and once I learn to trust you I have so much love to give.

I’m currently living it up in foster care, but I need to find my home soon as my foster carers are moving. What do you say, is there room at your place for a special boy like me?

A note from Bjorn’s foster carer:

Bjorn has been with us for around four months now and he has turned from being a scared and timid dog who wouldn’t let us get close enough to pat him, into the most adorable, lovable, affectionate and playful boy. His favourite times of the day are when each of his humans return from work. He cries with excitement and after he gets a good dose of pats and love he takes off for happy zoomies around the yard before promptly taking his place on the couch.
He isn’t a needy dog, but he does love being around his people. He is very nervous of anyone new though, and it takes a while for him to warm up to them. He has been living with a three year old child and loves the company! Not just because he is easy to steal food from, but because they both enjoy running and playing in the yard together.
Bjorn hasn’t had too much experience with other dogs because he is quite frightened of the outside world so hasn’t been out and about a whole lot, but any dog he has met he has been fine with and showed no aggression towards them.
Since he is a very playful boy he probably would enjoy having another dog to play with, but he is currently completely fine being an only dog and just getting to play with his humans and squeaky toys! Oh, and he loves re-arranging things that are lying around, especially shoes and socks! Don’t worry, he isn’t a destroyer and we haven’t had anything chewed up, but sometimes we do have to look around to find a matching pair of shoes or where the other sock has disappeared to.
If you’re interested in adopting Bjorn the most important thing is patience. He takes a little while to come out of his shell and needs to be allowed to move at his own pace when it comes to building up trust, but the wait is totally worth it!

Cohen

Hi, I’m Cohen! I’m a friendly boy who just loves hanging around with people – especially if they have food, that’s my favourite!! I wasn’t in the best way when I came to Greyhound Rescue – I have some teeth missing and I’m still working on getting my coat looking all nice and healthy, so I’m looking for a home where I can get plenty of TLC to help me get back to my best. (I hope the C stands for chicken!) I get along well with dogs of all sizes as well, just as long as they’re well behaved and not too in my face.

Belfleur

Hi there, my name’s Belfleur and as my name suggests, I’m as pretty as a flower! I’m an older gal so I’m looking for somewhere I can spend my retirement years in peace getting all the love and pampering I deserve. So if you have some nice comfy spots where I can lay my head and plenty of pats to give, maybe we’d be the perfect match? I get along well with all kinds of dogs too, just as long as they’re not too overly playful and jumping all over me – I’m not a puppy after all!

I get along great with smaller humans too! I’m not such a fan of other dogs at the moment so it’s best you don’t have any of them at home – I’m sure you’ll want to spend all your time with me anyway!

Magnum

Hi there, I’m Magnum! I’ve heard I’m named after a famous TV detective – like him, I think I’m a pretty smart dapper guy who would look pretty good in a Hawaiian shirt! I’m a friendly guy too, and I love playtime and hanging out with humans. I get on well with other greyhounds too, so if you have one of them at home maybe we could be good friends. I’ve met a few small dogs and I’m doing okay with them so far, but I think I could use a bit more practice, so best you don’t have any of them at home for now!

Hi there, I’m Pinot! I’m an all-round chilled out gal who is happiest when I’m exploring new places and sniffing around to my heart’s content. I get on well with other greyhounds and I’m even pretty good with those smaller fluffy dogs, but I think I’d be quite happy to be the only dog in your house as well!

Donut

Hi there, I’m Donut. I am a sweet-natured hound and I adore the company of people. For this reason I am looking for a home with humans who will be home more often than not, so I have lots of company. I promise I have lots of love to offer in return! I’m a bit of a shy boy but so far have been friendly with other dogs I’ve met that are my size. I am not a big fan of small dogs though, so please none of those! For this reason it would be great if you lived in the suburbs with not too many small dogs around so I can gain my confidence on the street! I would also love a backyard if you have one for me.

Domino

Hi there, I’m Domino. I am a sweet-natured hound and oh boy, humans are just my favourite thing ever! I am a bit excitable around other dogs that I’ve met so far. This means that I’d prefer being the only dog in your life, for now anyway. My ideal home would be in the suburbs to give me the opportunity to gain confidence without too many other dogs around. I’d also love a backyard if you’ve got one! No small children though please – I may knock them over with my enthusiasm!

Kramer (on trial)

Hi there, I’m Kramer! I’m a happy-go-lucky boy who just loves being around my humans. I get along well with dogs of all sizes, and small humans too. I even met a cat the other day and I didn’t mind it! I love food, walks, pats… did I mention food? Oh boy, I can’t get enough of that! So if you’re looking for a BFF who can double as a taste tester, maybe I’m your perfect guy!

A note from Kramer’s foster carers:

Kramer has settled into the good life remarkably well, despite only being out of the racing industry for a few weeks – he’s living out his retirement like a pro. He’s currently living with another 4 year old Grey and they get along really well. He has enjoyed meeting other new doggie friends (big and small) without any issues; he can be a little over zealous so would appreciate someone who is able to continue teaching him doggy manners. He’s a bit of a gobble guts and eats everything in sight, so will also be easy to train! He has picked up healing on the lead very quickly and happily walks on your left without pulling. He’s quite energetic for a Grey and has LOVED getting to go to the beach and cool off in the water. He likes sleeping in his crate which makes him feels safe and secure throughout the night. He doesn’t seem overly anxious when left alone but does love being with people and gets very excited to greet you. Despite being a bit excitable, he’s been very gentle with small children and would fit in well with a small family.
