Bentayga

Hi there, I’m Bentayga, or you can call me Benny for short! I’m a sweet and handsome boy who gets along well with dogs of all sizes. I am a bit of a timid boy though, and things like loud noises or too many people can make me quite nervous. Because of that, I’m looking for some kind humans who will let me take things at my own pace and give me the gentle encouragement I need to come out of my shell. I prefer the quiet life, so no inner city living for me, please. Once I get to know you, I’m sure we’ll be great friends – I just need some time to learn about pet life and all the new things that come along with it.

Rex

Hi there, I’m Rex. Some call me the Zoolander of the greyhound world because as you might have noticed, I’m really really ridiculously good looking! Don’t worry though, I don’t let it go to my head.

I’m a big boy but despite my size, I’m quite the gentle giant and I just love coming up to you to ask for some pats. I can get a bit bouncy sometimes when I’m excited, so I think it’s best I don’t go to a home with any smaller kids so I don’t bowl them over with my love. I don’t mind socialising with other greyhounds but I’m not much of a fan of those small dogs, and for now while I’m learning how to be a pet, I think I’d do best in a home where I’m the only dog. Being the centre of attention sounds pretty good to me anyway!

Whiskey

Hi there, I’m Whiskey, and if you’re thinking of adopting a greyhound, I’m all ears! Get it? I think my ears are my best feature – you can bet I’ll never miss the sound of a snack packet being opened!

I’m a bouncy boy with plenty of enthusiasm for life and especially for toys – the squeakier, the better! I hope my forever home has plenty of squeaky toys and some people who enjoy playing with me – that will make me so happy! I get along with dogs of all sizes too, so I’m happy to share my home with a doggie playmate. Until then, I’m chilling out in foster care and enjoying learning all about the joys of pet life – it’s the best!

Pedro

Ola, I’m Pedro! I’m a friendly boy who definitely has two ears, although the second one is often missing in action… I guess you might call that my signature look!

I love to hang out with humans – they’re all future friends, if you ask me! I’ve been very gentle with the kids that I’ve met so far, so I’d be happy to go to a home with some smaller humans. I get along well with bigger dogs too, so if you have any of them that’s fine by me too! I still get a bit too excited by small dogs, so while I’m learning what they are I think it’s best I don’t go to a home with any of them.

I’m just an overall chilled out guy really, so I’m happy to go on some adventures or just hang out at home and take it easy… as long as we can do it together, then it sounds greyt to me!

Happy New Year from Greyhound Rescue!

2019 was a big year for Greyhound Rescue!

We found loving homes for 203 greyhounds, grew our foster care program, welcomed many wonderful new volunteers, expanded our enrichment and rehabilitation program, and celebrated our tenth birthday with an incredible black tie fundraiser.

We also saw the retirement of Greyhound Rescue’s founders, Peter and Janet Flann, who dedicated their lives to the cause, making many personal sacrifices along the way. They built Greyhound Rescue from nothing and worked tirelessly for the greys to build an amazing team that will take Greyhound Rescue into the next decade.

Greyhound Rescue is going from strength to strength and the best is yet to come.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the journey, bring on 2020!

Have you considered your hound on New Years Eve?

Many dogs and other animals are frightened by the sounds of fireworks and can be distressed by crowds and parties. Follow these tips to help keep your furry friends safe;

  • Ensure that your pets have a safe place to retreat away from noise and crowds, particularly unfamiliar people who may be acting rowdy.
  • Before the festivities, take your dog for a long walk (weather permitting) so that they have used up some excess energy and are able to relax.
  • A scared animal may go to great lengths to escape a perceived threat; jumping fences, breaking free from tethers, and smashing through windows are just some of the lengths that a terrified pet could go to.
  • Double check that your dog has a sturdy collar that isn’t going to come off easily, and that your contact details are clear on the tags. Also, make sure that microchip details are up to date.
  • If you’re hosting or attending a party, keep a very close eye on your pet or keep them separated from party goers. You don’t want your dog to ingest something that she shouldn’t, and we all know that people can be silly under the influence.
  • If your dog does become nervous, sit with them and speak calmly. Generally, dogs don’t mind the topic of conversation, but a calm and soothing familiar voice can work wonders to relax them. Treats may also be appreciated.
  • A normally placid dog can behave unpredictably under stress and this can include destructive and defensive behaviours. Forward thinking and planning can help prevent any problems.
  • Watch out for signs of distress such as heavy panting/drooling, freezing, growling, pacing, excessive licking and avoidance. These signs show that a situation is simply too much for your dog and you should remove him to a safe and calm place.

Our dogs look to us for guidance and rely on us to keep them safe from harm, it is up to you to ensure that your pooch has a happy NYE.

From all the doggies and volunteers here at Greyhound Rescue, we wish you and your loved ones, both two-legged and four, a fabulous 2020!

Leslie (on trial)

I’m Leslie, nice to meet you! I’m a friendly boy with such a gentle sweet nature and handsome face. I love nothing more than spending time with my humans, and I’ll show you that by leaning my head against you to ask you for some gentle pats. I’m a particularly big fan of neck scratches!

I can’t wait to find my forever home. I like to stretch my legs, so my ideal home would have a backyard or courtyard where I can run around a bit, and hopefully have some playtime with you. I love walkies time too so I can’t wait to get out there and explore the world!

Picasso (on trial)

Hi there, I’m Picasso! My name is very fitting, because the great artist himself couldn’t paint a face more handsome than mine – or so the volunteers tell me, anyway!

I’m a friendly and lovable boy who is sure to win you over with my charming ways just as soon as we meet. I’m certainly not shy about asking for pats and attention, so be ready for me to ask you for plenty of those – I’m sure you won’t be able to resist! I absolutely love food too, so I’m happy to help out with the taste testing at your place!

Gracie (on trial)

Hi, I’m Gracie! I’m a bit of an all-round sweetheart with such a gentle nature. I came to Greyhound Rescue with a broken leg, but with plenty of love and care I’m well along the path to recovery and ready for a home of my own. What does this mean for my forever family? This means I’m classed as a sanctuary dog and Greyhound Rescue will cover certain vet expenses for ongoing issues with my leg for the rest of my life.

Because I’m such a softie, I get along well with everyone really, whether they’re dogs or people, big or small… although I should warn you that if you have a Jack Russell at home, you might have a hard time telling us apart!

I’m certainly not shy about asking for some attention, and I just love roaching and asking for tummy rubs. All I ask is a nice soft bed and a family who will give me plenty of love and pats, and I’ll be oh so happy.
