Hi there, I’m Donkey!

When I first arrived at Greysland, I was so frightened of everything and I didn’t know what to make of my new world. But now that I’ve learned to expect only kindness (and chicken) here at Greysland, I’m coming along in leaps and bounds – sometimes literally, because if you’ve got a toy or some treats I might not be able to contain my excitement!

Recently I’ve moved into a foster home where my greyhound foster siblings are helping teach me how to enjoy the good life. The big wide world is a little scary to me sometimes but my wonderful foster family is giving me lots of space to take things at my own pace, and I’m getting braver every day – I’ve started venturing into the backyard to hang out with them sometimes and I’ve even tried out a couple of zoomies!

Playtime is just about my favourite thing ever, especially if it involves something squeaky. If you will take a minute to play some fetch with me, you’ll get to see my big happy smile, it’s sure to brighten up your day!

If you take me home, it’s very important that you let me go at my own pace. You can help by introducing me to new things slowly and giving me space to make sure I don’t get overwhelmed. I’d love a quieter home, preferably with a backyard where I can stretch my legs if I’m not feeling confident enough for a walk. I’m doing well living with other greyhounds, but I’m still learning about other dogs and I can be a little bit nervous with them.

With a bit of love, patience and chicken, I know I’ll be the best sidekick you could ask for and I’ll fill your heart with so much joy.

If you think you’d be interested in meeting me, fill out an application form and the volunteers at Greyhound Rescue will get on the case. Our matchmakers go to greyt lengths to match each hound with the right family to make sure everyone’s happy, and you’ll become part of a wonderful rescue community with lots of support along the way. Get in touch to find out more!
