Echo

Hi there, I’m Echo! I’m a big bouncy boy who’s always ready for playtime, so I’m sure we’ll be the best of friends! I LOVE food too, so even better if you have some treats for me, mmm!! I’ve gotten on well with the greyhounds I’ve met so far but I’m still learning how to ‘dog’, so while I learn the ropes of pet life I think I’d like a home without other dogs. But don’t worry, we can have plenty of fun with just us!

Ready for playtime with Echo? Get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

Kingston

Hello! I’m Kingston. I’m a sweet-natured boy whose favourite pastimes include asking for pats and then asking for some more pats… and maybe a good ear scratch too. I can be a wee bit nervous around new things sometimes so I’m thinking if you had a nice yard for me so I can hang out there if I’m not really feeling outside sometimes.  I’d do best in a family without really young kiddies (just because I’m a big boy), but if you have some older kids willing to play fetch with me, I’m more than happy to oblige!

Got room for a sweet boy like me? Get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

Stephen

Hi there, the name’s Stephen – you might notice I have the cutest overbite you’ve ever seen! Personally, I think it adds to my charm. I’m a quiet-natured and sweet boy who’s happy just to chill and watch the world go by. I’m currently living it up in foster care where I’m learning about the big wide world (sometimes I find it a bit scary!). If you’re after a well-mannered and sweet guy, I might be the hound you’re looking for!

A note from Stephen’s foster carers:

Stephen loves to seek affection from us but equally loves chasing and playing with his balls (toys!). He brings the ball back to us if he wants us to keep playing with him.

Stephen has been great with other greyhounds he has met, so may enjoy being in a home with another greyhound, or another large and chilled out dog. So far, he doesn’t appear to be a huge fan of large and energetic dogs, or small dogs. He isn’t hostile towards them; he just tries to leave!

Stephen is still learning his name and to come when called. He is easily distracted by new and shiny things!

Stephen is a sweet and gentle-natured greyhound, and his personality is still coming through. He likes to follow us around the house and see what we’re up to, but if we are doing something boring (by his standards) he will lie down on his bed and relax.

Stephen has spent some time with small children (4 and 7) and was very patient with them and enjoyed the attention. Stephen may be suitable in a household with small children as long as they are respectful of his space (and not too loud).

Stephen sleeps through the night without interruption.

Stephen has successfully mastered the few stairs that he has come across so far.

If you think I could be the boy for you, get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

Skylar

Hi there, I’m Skylar, the happiest girl with the waggiest tail! I’m a sweet-natured girl who absolutely loves hanging out with people (that’s when I do my best tail wagging). I like to take it fairly easy and get to know my what’s around me first so I don’t think I’m much of a city gal with all of the hustle and bustle and would enjoy a quieter neighbourhood. Besides, that means lots more room for me to wag my tail!

If you’re looking for a happy girl like me, get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

Wilbert

Hi! I’m Wilbert. I’m a wee bit shy so I’ll need some extra-special ‘pawrents’ who will take the time to gently and patiently bring me out of my shell. I’m a little bit unsure of this big wide world so I like to take my time to get used to new people and situations. Once I get to know you though, I’m a rather affectionate and playful boy. I’d do my best in a home without any kids or other dogs for now while I get used to my new life as a pet but I’m really excited about finding my forever home!

If you’ve got room for a special boy like me, get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

Nyx

Hi! I’m Nyx – nice to meet you! I’m a happy go lucky and friendly guy who’s not really shy about asking for some attention. I’ve not seen much of this big wide world, so I’d love a home where I can discover all of these new and exciting things at my own pace. Maybe if you’ve got a yard for me to stretch my legs, that might be nice too. Speaking of new things, I met a small dog the other day, and I don’t think I’d be keen to live with one of those but I think another big dog for company might be nice!

No grey area: NSW government must fund dogs charity – Peter FitzSimons

Image credit: Simon Bennett

Read the article on SMH »

You and me, babe. You’ll recall we got into the whole greyhound thing back in 2015 after the mighty Four Corners exposé of the horrors of live-baiting, and we not only supported the Baird government banning it, but were loudly appalled a couple of years ago when they caved in after all. But then our attention shifted, didn’t it? We went on to other things, and while we were out some of the industry went back to their old ways.

Barney

Hi! I’m Barney and I’m a pretty cool dude and all-round loveable goofball. I’ve been living it up in foster care and discovering just how much I love seeking out pats – they’re the best! I’m a gentle boy and I’m fine with children as long as they’re a bit older. I’m still learning about small fluffy creatures at the moment but I’m happy to have another greyhound friend to chill out with!

A note from Barney’s foster carers:

He loves toys, his bed, pats. He’ll just stand next to you if you keep patting him and has been coming out of his shell and getting a bit demanding which is amazing! He loves ear, neck and chest scratches.

He’s a bit lazy and loves laying down but will engage with toys and treats when you ask / encourage. He’s a good listener and gets up when we want to put his coat on and responds well to his name if he’s barking in the backyard for some reason.
He’s good on walks and his confidence has skyrocketed when manoeuvring over and up rocks and likes getting his feet wet! Happy to come home and sleep when we get home, you can tell he gets tired half way through the walk and never pulls with the harness. He’s very good on lead and listens.

When we’ve seen other dogs he has reacted with a bark (especially if they’re barking at him) but we took him for a walk the other day and he ignored chickens (he was walking on the other side of me and was happy to keep walking with me on a short leash). However on the walk there were a few dogs that were barking at him through fences and he barked back and tried to stand still but didn’t pull me off my feet and let us walk off with some redirection. He’d be so good with a older person – he’s very lazy, VERY gentle and would be happy with a walk around the block. Very cute and good boy!
