Pet of the Week – Hope (puppy)

Hi there, I’m Hope! I’m still a puppy which means I’m playful, inquisitive and love to make new friends. In fact, I love hanging out with all breeds of dogs and I don’t mind cats either!

When I was just a young pup, I had an injury to my back legs, and the dogtors are still figuring out exactly what that will mean for me.* Because of that, I’m looking for a patient and compassionate foster human (or humans!) who can take me to the appointments that I need. Like all puppies, I love to spend time with my people so it’s best if you’re not a full time worker.

Despite my injury, I’m still a happy girl who loves to play, run around and be a normal puppy, so a foster home with a backyard is a must!

*Hope was surrendered to Greyhound Rescue after a paralysis injury to her back legs as a young pup. We do not yet know the extent of her injury, and as such we are looking for an amazing foster home for Hope while we conduct further investigations. All vet costs will be covered by Greyhound Rescue. Currently Hope is experiencing some issues with toileting which may be related to her injury, so foster carers will need to be patient with her.

Hello, I’m Taavi! I’m a sweet girl who’s still new to this whole pet caper, so I can sometimes be a little bit nervous about new people and experiences. But once I get to know you I’m sure we’ll be the best of friends! I get along well with dogs of all sizes so if you have one of those at home that’s fine by me – maybe they can help me learn the ropes of pet life! Read More »

Hello there, I’m Lenny! I’m a happy, friendly sort of boy who is certainly not shy about asking for some attention. I don’t cope very well being left on my own for long periods of time, so I’m looking for a home where I can have company more often than not – but with a personality like mine I’m sure you’ll love spending time with me too! I like a bit of room to play so I don’t think I’d suit apartment living, but if you have a doggie friend for me to play with then that’s fine by me! Read More »

Hi, I’m Oswald! If you take me home, get ready for me to ask you for pats at every opportunity – but with my big puppy dog eyes, I’m sure you won’t be able to resist! I don’t much like those small dogs, but I adore being around humans and I’m friendly with other big dogs too. I’ll be sure to greet you with enthusiasm every time you come home so I know we’ll be best of friends in no time at all! Read More »

Hi there, I’m Hubert! With my supermodel good looks, I’m sure to steal your heart. I’m a pretty laid back dude so if you’re looking for a buddy who’s happy to just chill out with you and won’t be shy about asking you for pats, then I might just be your perfect guy! I’m not too keen on little dogs so it’s best you don’t have any of those, but if you have a greyhound or another big dog at home then I’d love to meet them! Read More »

Hi, I’m Elaine! I’m a sweet girl and quite the fash-hound as you can see – they do say that black goes with everything! I can be a teeny bit timid about new people and experiences, so I might need you to be patient sometimes and let me learn new things at my own pace. Once I get to know you though, I’m ever so friendly and will just love to spend time with you and ask you for some pats. I also get along great with other dogs of all sizes, so I’d be happy to have a doggie friend in my new home! Read More »

Hi there, I’m Tonks! I’m a friendly girl with plenty of personality and enthusiasm for life. In fact, I just love meeting new people, playing with new toys, trying out new treats… it’s all so much fun! I get on well with other greyhounds but because I’m still learning how to be a pet, I think I’d do best on my own for now. I think I’d be okay with apartment living too. If that all sounds like you, then oh boy, I’d be so excited to meet you! Read More »

I’m Dulcie, nice to meet you! I’m a golden oldie who’s looking for a nice relaxing home to enjoy my retirement years. I’m a quiet girl but I’m so friendly and I’ll be so happy just to spend time with you! I don’t ask too much for my perfect home, just somewhere nice and quiet with some soft beds for me to enjoy and some nice humans to give me plenty of love. I get on well with other dogs, even the smaller kind – so I’m happy to share my home with one of them!

*Dulcie has had a few teeth removed, so good dental care is essential for her remaining teeth. Read More »

Hi, I’m Bronx! I’m a big, buff boy with good looks to match, but despite all that I’m a quiet boy and a true gentle giant at heart. I get on well with other dogs, although I’m still learning to share my things with them, so while I practice my manners I think I’d do best in a home where I’m the only dog. Apart from that, I’m a pretty easygoing guy, so if you’ve got room in your heart for a big boy like me, I would sure love to meet you! Read More »

Hi there, I’m Archer. One look into my soulful eyes and you won’t be able to resist taking me home with you! I’m a gentle boy who just loves to lean on you and ask you for pats. I love my toys and I also really love not doing much at all, so I would be okay in an apartment. I’m not a big fan of those things they call small dogs either, so it’s best if you don’t have any of them at home. But as long as I get to spend time with you, I’ll be as happy as can be!

Hi there, I’m Gloria. I’m looking for a very special home with a patient sort of person who can give me the time and space I need to come out of my shell. You see, I’m quite timid – I haven’t seen too much of the world yet and I find it a bit daunting right now. One thing I do love is food, so if you have some time for training and enrichment then that might help me build my confidence. I wouldn’t mind a home with a big doggie brother, if he’s the calm and confident sort – maybe he can help show me the ropes of pet life. Read More »
