Ray and “his supermodel legs” attract lots of attention!

Jun 23, 2022 | Success Stories

Some houndies wriggle extra deep into our hearts during their time at the Greyhound Rescue kennels. Handsome boy Ray (formerly known as Thanatos) was one of those hounds. At least seven of our volunteers decided Ray, a gorgeous fawn greyhound, was their boyfriend! We can’t blame them – he truly is gorgeous!

Luckily for Ray, he didn’t have to spend long being fought over. Sheridan and Tim locked eyes with him across the grass at Greysland in September last year, and the rest is history.

Read on to hear how much joy Ray has brought to their lives in the past 8 months:

“Since our visit to Greysland on the 3rd September 2021 our golden boy ‘Ray’ has been lighting up our lives ever since. When we picked up Ray (formerly known as Thanatos) and welcomed him into our home, he was a very shy boy and wasn’t too sure of pats.

Ray like most greyhounds has two modes – zombie mode and race car mode. The backyard is luckily big enough for his high-speed zoomies and epic ball chases! He is obsessed with walks, so much so, that he throws little tanties in the morning if you aren’t keeping to his walking time schedule.

Ray also commits to the challenge to get sneaky pats from anyone we pass by on our daily walks. With his supermodel legs, he attracts lots of attention and everyone who meets Ray cannot get over what a placid, friendly and good boy he is.

Ray has given us plenty of laughs but the most memorable one so far was when we took him to his first visit to pet shop to get a harness. On our way to the counter, we walked down the toy aisle and if you know Ray… he LOVES fluffy toys. He swiftly picks out his own purchase and proceeds to walk to the counter with his new-found fluffy dog friend. The workers there had a giggle along with some customers. How could we say no?! We bought it.

Our boy has officially found his fur-ever home and we consider ourselves so lucky that he chose us. The perfect match. Greyhound Rescue, you guys sure know and understand how to match humans and hounds! Greyhound Rescue has made the adoption process so seamless and easy, the support provided has been amazing and beyond all expectations. Thank you for matching us with our beautiful boy, we cannot thank you enough.”
