Frankie accepting applications for a full-time ball-thrower

Jul 19, 2021 | Success Stories

“Frankie isn’t your typical rescue greyhound. We expected a couch potato and what we got was ten kelpies in the body of one greyhound!”

Not all of the hounds that pass through our doors at Greyhound Rescue have the same background. Frankie was one of the lucky ones, raised as a pet from four months old and adopted by her furever pawrents in December 2020.

Over the past 6 months, this gorgeous little gal has settled in with her new family, let her personality shine through and played more than her fair share of fetch!

“She came to us at 11 months so she’s still just a baby with lots of puppy behaviours,” said mum Deni.

“She loves ball more than anything in the world and is so incredibly intelligent and energetic.

“She’s also REALLY determined when she wants something.  One time we were at the park and she did not want to leave, so she just stood still and refused to move (after avoiding coming near us for fifteen minutes!).

“We had to carry her out and she looked so proud of herself! 

“If you’re thinking of adopting a greyhound, absolutely do it. They are funny, loving and unique dogs with incredible personalities. You won’t regret it at all.

“As an added bonus, the greyhound community is so wonderful and supportive. Greyhound Rescue have been amazing. You aren’t just given a dog and sent on your way – you have support at every stage, even down the track months or years later.

“We love Frankie so much. Together with our other greyhound, Charlie, we are a very happy family.
