Pet of the Week – Cheeky

 

Hi there, I’m Cheeky and my mission in life is to be your best friend (and sleep on your couch). I’ve matured as I’ve grown older and developed some manners however I still like to go by the name of Cheeky or Sweet Cheeks. I am a lively and happy girl who is learning to play and socialise. I much prefer humans so please don’t make me hang around with any of those furry things you call cats or dogs. I’m well behaved with older children who can give me pats and treats. I’m a rather stylish girl. When I’m not wearing the latest fashion out of Milan, I’m dressed in my sleek black coat. Not to toot my own horn, but you won’t believe how shiny and soft it is. I wear a boot when I go walking, but don’t worry it goes with my outfit. I’m a country girl at heart who prefers some peace and quiet out of the big city.

If you’re looking for a stylish friend like me, get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

Sirius

Hi there, I’m Sirius – Sirius Black! I’m a big boy, but don’t let my size fool you – I’m a true softie at heart and I love nothing more than resting my head on you to ask you for lots of gentle pats. It’s the greyhound version of a hug!

I’m quite a polite and quiet boy, and you might have noticed one of my most adorable features is my overbite – the volunteers tell me it gives me such a cute smile! It certainly doesn’t stop me eating though, I just can’t get enough of food – if you need a taste tester at your house, I’m definitely happy to help with that!

I get along well with other dogs, so I’m happy to share my home with one of them. What do you say, could I be your new best friend?

Claud

Bonjour, je m’appelle Claud! With my suave ways and good looks, I’m sure to charm you in no time at all.

I’m a pretty easygoing boy, and I’m not too fussy about the sort of home I’m looking for, whether it’s a house or apartment – just as long as there are plenty of pats whenever I ask for them, I think I’ll be happy!

I get along well with medium and large dogs, so I’d be happy sharing my home with one of them. I’m still learning my manners around the smaller ones, but I’m getting there!

What do you think, could we be the perfect match?

Serena (on trial)

Hi there, I’m Serena! I’m a friendly and oh so gorgeous girl with the shiniest coat you will ever see.

Because of my sweet and easygoing personality, I get along well with other greyhounds and even with small dogs, so I’d be happy to share my home with one of them. Just as long as you’ve got plenty of time to play and give me all the pats I could ask for, I’ll be so happy!

Mara

Hi there, I’m Mara! I’m a sweet girl who is learning the ropes of pet life in foster care while I wait for my forever home.

I’m an outgoing girl with a bit of a cheeky streak, so when we’re together I’m sure to keep you entertained. I don’t mind if you have a small house or an apartment either – I just love playing and spending quality time with you, so as long as we can do that then I’ll be ever so happy!

Oh, and I just love hanging out with other dogs so I would be very happy to have a doggie playmate in my new home!

A note from Mara’s foster carer:

Mara – cheeky and a bit boofy.

She loves having another dog around. She accepts kisses from Buddy and will steal Buddy’s toys but more often then not is just happy to observe him and lie on her bed. She would probably do well with another dog or an owner that likes hanging out ad chilling with her.

She doesn’t like the rain but is easily convinced when Buddy is out with her. Most of the day she likes to laze around and occasionally comes over for a cuddle. She is vocal if she needs something or sometimes just vocal for the sake of being attention seeking, hence the cheeky.

She loves her toy lamb and has it in bed with her. She’s good on walks but sometimes can get fixated on small fluffy dogs. Trying to distract her during these times are tricky but having said that she has said hello to many small non fluffy dogs and appears to be relaxed and calm.

She has a good appetite and eats chicken rice etc but really likes tuna.

She’s a smiley gal with a lot to give.

Vale Rosie

Today we pay tribute to long-time GR alumni, Rosie, who crossed the rainbow bridge last week. Vale Rosie.

“In 2013 Rosie Duddy stormed her way into my life and heart. Unable to choose a greyhound at Riverstone kennels, Greyhound Rescue made the decision for me. Ausilia was enlisted to transport her from the kennels. I’ll never forget that evening when she walked up my garden path looking more like a white deer than a dog.

Just shy of her 15th birthday it was her time. She gave me the best 7 years of companionship and I’ll never stop missing her. I knew nothing about greyhounds and made mistakes but Rosie, tolerant as ever, took them all in her stride. She taught me so much about myself, as well as greyhounds.

She blossomed and her trademark “get in first mentality” with other dogs soon disappeared and she transformed into such a tolerant gentle girl. She would lie in the crèche at work and let children crawl over her, walk patiently with my disability clients and visit the elderly at the Illawarra Retirement Trust.

My bed was no longer my bed, however I was allowed to share it with her.

At Easties Beach, South Coast she was known as HRH Rosie. People would stop and stare as she raced down the shoreline. She was mesmerising. She would then fling herself into a rock pool before emerging, waiting for adulation and pats from her many fans. So many wonderful memories.

Thank you so much to Greyhound Rescue’s founders, Janet and Peter Flann, as well as all the amazing volunteers. GR and Rosie have, and continue to, change me for the better.

Anyone reading post who is new to the world of greyhounds, or undecided like I was, please take the plunge.

LIFE IS BETTER with a greyhound (or two) in it.”

-Belinda, Rosie’s mum and Greyhound Rescue Volunteer

Asher

Hi there, I’m Asher! I’m just a kid at not even two years old, so I’ve still got plenty of puppy energy and enthusiasm for life. I just love people and I’m a bit of a velcro dog, so I’ll be so excited to meet you and will ask you for so many pats. I’m sure we will be friends in no time at all!

I’m a pretty easygoing guy, so I’m not too fussy about the kind of home I want. I wouldn’t mind apartment living, although if you do have a backyard for me to play around in, I think that would be just about perfect! I don’t even mind those small fluffy dogs, so I’d be happy to share my home with one of them, as long as my exuberance for life wasn’t too much for them.

Karla (on trial)

Hi there, I’m Karla! I’m a super friendly girl who absolutely loves fun, pats, playtime, asking you for attention at every opportunity… did I mention pats? Meeting new people is one of my favourite things in the world – if you’re lucky I might even give you a few kisses!

Because I’m such a social butterfly, I can’t wait to find my new home with some humans who will be at my beck and call. All I ask is plenty of attention and playtime, and I’ll be as happy as can be! I love small humans too, although it’s best that they are a bit older and confident around big dogs because I can get a bit excited, and I wouldn’t want to knock them over!

Pip

I’m Pip, Greyhound Rescue’s littlest kennel kid! I’ve just turned one so I’m still just a baby, and I can’t wait to explore the big wide world.

You might notice that I have quite an overbite – it’s definitely my cutest feature and it’s sure to get me noticed wherever I go! Because it’s so pronounced though, eating and drinking are a bit more complicated for me, and I’m looking for some extra special humans who won’t mind giving me a hand if I need it. I don’t ask too much, I might just need you to give me my food on a flat plate and make sure I have water that I can access easily.

With my playful and cheeky nature, I’m sure to keep you entertained. I love toys and while I will happily keep myself entertained with them, I’ll be over the moon if you have some time to play with me! I also absolutely love playing with other dogs, it’s soooo fun – so if you have another dog at home, that sounds great to me!

Because I’m just a puppy, I’m very inquisitive about everything, so I would love if my humans could do some training and enrichment activities with me so I grow up to be a polite and well adjusted doggie!

Iris (on hold)

Hi there, I’m Iris! At not quite two years old, I’m still a bit of a pup, but I’m a very sweet girl and quite chilled out most of the time. If you haven’t noticed already, one of my best features is my super dreamy eyes… I guarantee you will be powerless to resist them!

I absolutely love toys – if they squeak or bounce, I just can’t get enough of them. I’m hoping my new humans have a yard for me to play in, and lots of time to play with me of course! I get along well with other dogs of all sizes too, as long as they’re calm and not too in my face, so I’m happy to go to a home with another dog.
