Pet of the Week – Barney

Hi! I’m Barney and I’m a pretty cool dude and all-round loveable goofball. I’ve been living it up in foster care and discovering just how much I love seeking out pats – they’re the best! I’m a gentle boy and I’m fine with children as long as they’re a bit older. I’m still learning about small fluffy creatures at the moment but I’m happy to have another greyhound friend to chill out with!

Hi, I’m Tony! The volunteers say I’m a bit of a velcro dog… I think because I just love being near people, asking them for pats and helping them out with whatever they’re doing! I love playtime – my favourite game is fetch and I think toys are just about the best thing ever! So if you’re happy to throw a ball around with me sometimes and then we can just spend some time together – maybe we’d be the perfect match? Read More »

Hi, I’m Riley! I’m a happy boy who just LOVES playtime – in fact, I might like it a bit too much and I’m still learning how to share my toys with others, but I’m working hard on learning my manners! While I learn all about pet life, I think I’d do best in a home where I’m the only dog – being the centre of attention sounds good to me anyway!

Hi, I’m Moonie. I’m a timid girl and the big wide world can still be a bit overwhelming for me. Because of that, I’m looking for a quiet home in the suburbs with some nice humans who will give me time and space to get used to pet life at my own pace. If you have a calm and confident dog who can help me learn how to dog then that would be fine by me – I don’t mind if they’re big or small! Read More »

Hi there, I’m Mercury! I’m a super sweet and smiley boy who just loves making friends with everyone I meet. If you take me home, I’ll be so happy to spend time with you and I won’t be shy about asking you for pats either! I haven’t met too many other types of dog yet but I love hanging out with other greyhounds, so I’d be happy to have one as a playmate! Read More »

Hi, I’m Drew! I’m a quiet but friendly boy who is coming out of my shell more and more each day now that I’m at Greyhound Rescue. My favourite times of day are breakfast time, dinner time, treat time… any time that involves food really!! I’m quite happy to hang out with other dogs too so if you have any of them, maybe we can be friends! Read More »

Hi, I’m Georgie! While you might think I’m timid at first, don’t be fooled – as soon as I realise you have a treat or two then I will instantly be your number one bestest fan ever!! You see, while I look like a tiny girl, my appetite for treats is anything but tiny. So if you have some treats for me, I’m sure we’ll be friends and I won’t be shy about asking you for some pats too! I have a bit of an overbite which the volunteers tell me just adds to my charm, especially when I get happy and start chattering my teeth… I’m sure you’ll be in love in no time as well! I’ve met a few small dogs and being a small girl myself, I don’t mind them, so if you have one at home that’s okay with me. Read More »

Hope (puppy)

Hope is almost ready for her forever home. She is a playful inquisitive 9 month old girl. She was surrendered to Greyhound Rescue as she had a paralysis injury to her back legs as a young pup. She has full use of her back legs now however her hocks have conformational issues that may develop arthritis in her later years. This previous injury does not hold her back, she loves to play, run around and be a normal puppy. She has met several different breeds of dogs and is happy as long as they are not too full on.

Hope’s forever home would be one where her humans would continue with positive reinforcement training, have a calm confident doggy companion and a home that has no stairs if possible. Preference will be given to adoption applications where the humans are not full time workers so they can spend a lot of time with Hope. Read More »

Francine (on trial)

I’m Francine, nice to meet you! I’m a petite girl but what I lack in size I sure make up for in heart! I might be a little bit shy when we first meet but once that’s out of the way I’m a total sweetheart and will love asking you for lots of pats. I get along well with medium and large dogs so if you have any of those that’s fine by me. I’m sure we will be the best of friends in no time! Read More »

I’m Amarin! I’m a sweet girl who can be a little shy when we first meet, but once I get to know you I’m sure we will be good friends! I like hanging out with other greyhounds so I think I’d be happy for my forever home to have a greyhound pal for me to play with. I’m still learning my leash manners around other types of dogs, but I’ve met some medium sized ones and I think I’d be okay with them too!

I would prefer a more leisurely life as I have had a broken hock in my previous life which didn’t heal very well. It can get sore if I over exercise, or sometimes when it’s cold – so I would sure love a nice warm home of my own! Sometimes I may need some pain relief and arthritic supplements too. Read More »
