Yogi

Hi there, I’m Yogi! I’m a friendly boy who is a master at charming you into patting me and giving me all your treats… it’s my special power!

I’m a polite boy who can be a bit shy at first, but once I settle in I’ll be ever so friendly and will love asking you for lots of pats. I just love food and I’ll do anything for it, so maybe we can learn a few tricks together, or I can be your taste tester? I’m very skilled at that!

I’m quite friendly with the lady dogs and I don’t mind small dogs either, but while I’m learning the ropes of pet life, I think I’d be happiest flying solo. All the more attention (and treats) for me!

Janis

Hi, I’m Janis! I’m an older girl who’s looking for a nice home where I can spend my retirement years in peace.

My ideal home would be a nice quiet one with plenty of comfy places where I can rest my head, snooze the day away, and ask you for a few gentle pats now and again. I’d be happiest as a solo hound, although if you have a dog that’s calm and polite, I wouldn’t mind that either.

I don’t like sharing my food very much so I’ll need some humans who will leave me be while I’m eating, and maybe help me learn some manners – I don’t mean it of course, I’m just still getting used to this pet life where I have everything I could ever need!

Binny (on trial)

Hi there, I’m Binny! I’m a sweet girl with quite the sassy streak. When I want pats, I hope you’re ready to be at my beck and call, because I am certainly not shy about asking you for attention! In fact, I have personality in spades, so I’m sure to keep you entertained!

Despite my sassy nature, I don’t have a long list of requirements for my perfect home – I just love people and being the centre of attention, so as long as you’re ready to give me plenty of that I’ll be so happy! I get along well with other dogs so I’d be happy to share my home with one of them.

Marther

Hi there, I’m Marther! I was quite a nervous girl when I first came to Greyhound Rescue, but with lots of TLC from my wonderful new foster carers I’m coming out of my shell more and more each day.

I don’t ask too much from my forever home, just as long as there’s lots of comfy spots where I can snooze the day away, and some kind and patient humans who continue teaching me all about the joys of pet life. I get along well with other dogs, although I’m quite happy to be your only dog as well. I’ve even been sharing my foster home with a cat, and I think I’d be happy to share my forever home with one of them too!

*Marther has been diagnosed with Pannus for which she’ll have to have ongoing twice daily eye drops.

A note from Marther’s foster carers:

Marther is thriving in her foster home. She’s dog friendly (all sized dogs – she just isn’t particularly interested in other dogs) and is also cat friendly (currently living with a cat and also not particularly interested, though they have booped noses a few times and it is the cutest!

She’s most scared of wind, but at all not bothered by daily noises of apartment complex living. She hates the rain even though we adore her in her rain coat!

Oh, and she sleeps more than the cat!

Tiger

Hello I’m Tiger – yes I know I don’t look like a tiger and I am not a cat, but that’s my name! Perhaps it is because being a greyhound I am as graceful and athletic as one? Anyhow, I am a distinguished older gentleman, a little silver around the whiskers perhaps but that just means I am wearing the badge of wisdom. Think of me like George Clooney, handsome, grey, and he gets all the ladies!

I have plenty of life and love to give, I just need a someone to give it to. I hear there are wonderful comfy things called sofas where people and lucky houndies can spend their evenings curled up together – I would like to try one of those. I hear these lucky houndies only have to run to their foodbowl and bed (and only if they want to). I like the sound of being part of a family, and I don’t ask for much. I get on well with other dogs I have met, as long as they are respectful and not too overbearing. I have also been friendly with small humans that I have met. I am the quiet type and despite being a bigger boy I honestly won’t take up much room.

Sirius

Hi there, I’m Sirius – Sirius Black! I’m a big boy, but don’t let my size fool you – I’m a true softie at heart and I love nothing more than resting my head on you to ask you for lots of gentle pats. It’s the greyhound version of a hug!

I’m quite a polite and quiet boy, and you might have noticed one of my most adorable features is my overbite – the volunteers tell me it gives me such a cute smile! It certainly doesn’t stop me eating though, I just can’t get enough of food – if you need a taste tester at your house, I’m definitely happy to help with that!

I get along well with other dogs, so I’m happy to share my home with one of them. What do you say, could I be your new best friend?

Vale Rosie

Today we pay tribute to long-time GR alumni, Rosie, who crossed the rainbow bridge last week. Vale Rosie.

“In 2013 Rosie Duddy stormed her way into my life and heart. Unable to choose a greyhound at Riverstone kennels, Greyhound Rescue made the decision for me. Ausilia was enlisted to transport her from the kennels. I’ll never forget that evening when she walked up my garden path looking more like a white deer than a dog.

Just shy of her 15th birthday it was her time. She gave me the best 7 years of companionship and I’ll never stop missing her. I knew nothing about greyhounds and made mistakes but Rosie, tolerant as ever, took them all in her stride. She taught me so much about myself, as well as greyhounds.

She blossomed and her trademark “get in first mentality” with other dogs soon disappeared and she transformed into such a tolerant gentle girl. She would lie in the crèche at work and let children crawl over her, walk patiently with my disability clients and visit the elderly at the Illawarra Retirement Trust.

My bed was no longer my bed, however I was allowed to share it with her.

At Easties Beach, South Coast she was known as HRH Rosie. People would stop and stare as she raced down the shoreline. She was mesmerising. She would then fling herself into a rock pool before emerging, waiting for adulation and pats from her many fans. So many wonderful memories.

Thank you so much to Greyhound Rescue’s founders, Janet and Peter Flann, as well as all the amazing volunteers. GR and Rosie have, and continue to, change me for the better.

Anyone reading post who is new to the world of greyhounds, or undecided like I was, please take the plunge.

LIFE IS BETTER with a greyhound (or two) in it.”

-Belinda, Rosie’s mum and Greyhound Rescue Volunteer

Pip

I’m Pip, Greyhound Rescue’s littlest kennel kid! I’ve just turned one so I’m still just a baby, and I can’t wait to explore the big wide world.

You might notice that I have quite an overbite – it’s definitely my cutest feature and it’s sure to get me noticed wherever I go! Because it’s so pronounced though, eating and drinking are a bit more complicated for me, and I’m looking for some extra special humans who won’t mind giving me a hand if I need it. I don’t ask too much, I might just need you to give me my food on a flat plate and make sure I have water that I can access easily.

With my playful and cheeky nature, I’m sure to keep you entertained. I love toys and while I will happily keep myself entertained with them, I’ll be over the moon if you have some time to play with me! I also absolutely love playing with other dogs, it’s soooo fun – so if you have another dog at home, that sounds great to me!

Because I’m just a puppy, I’m very inquisitive about everything, so I would love if my humans could do some training and enrichment activities with me so I grow up to be a polite and well adjusted doggie!
