Donut

Hi there, I’m Donut. I am a sweet-natured hound and I adore the company of people. For this reason I am looking for a home with humans who will be home more often than not, so I have lots of company. I promise I have lots of love to offer in return! I’m a bit of a shy boy but so far have been friendly with other dogs I’ve met that are my size. I am not a big fan of small dogs though, so please none of those! For this reason it would be great if you lived in the suburbs with not too many small dogs around so I can gain my confidence on the street! I would also love a backyard if you have one for me.

Kramer (on trial)

Hi there, I’m Kramer! I’m a happy-go-lucky boy who just loves being around my humans. I get along well with dogs of all sizes, and small humans too. I even met a cat the other day and I didn’t mind it! I love food, walks, pats… did I mention food? Oh boy, I can’t get enough of that! So if you’re looking for a BFF who can double as a taste tester, maybe I’m your perfect guy!

A note from Kramer’s foster carers:

Kramer has settled into the good life remarkably well, despite only being out of the racing industry for a few weeks – he’s living out his retirement like a pro. He’s currently living with another 4 year old Grey and they get along really well. He has enjoyed meeting other new doggie friends (big and small) without any issues; he can be a little over zealous so would appreciate someone who is able to continue teaching him doggy manners. He’s a bit of a gobble guts and eats everything in sight, so will also be easy to train! He has picked up healing on the lead very quickly and happily walks on your left without pulling. He’s quite energetic for a Grey and has LOVED getting to go to the beach and cool off in the water. He likes sleeping in his crate which makes him feels safe and secure throughout the night. He doesn’t seem overly anxious when left alone but does love being with people and gets very excited to greet you. Despite being a bit excitable, he’s been very gentle with small children and would fit in well with a small family.

Cooper

Hi there, I’m Cooper. I’m a bit of a special guy, and I need an understanding home with a kind, gentle new family who are prepared to be patient with me, please.

I’m currently in foster care, living with other greyhounds, and I’m fine with this. Having another dog around does help my confidence, but I’d be okay being your only dog, too, if that’s the case. It just means more attention for me, right?

I can be very unsure of new people, and for this reason it’s essential I have my crate – it’s my safe space and the place I go if I’m afraid or need some alone time. It’s important I’m not allowed on the couch or bed, particularly if you have another dog (I’ve shown some resource guarding in the past). I love my crate anyway, and am happy so long as I have access to it.

I am toilet trained, but will need my new owners to stick to a strict “puppy-like” toilet schedule with me for the first week or two, as I do sometimes forget my training if I feel stressed.

I’ve proven to be okay with kids aged over 10 years, and I really am super affectionate once I feel able to open up. My foster carers say I have such a cute, loveable personality; it just takes patience to allow it to shine through. Once I’ve managed to warm up to new people, I’m the sweetest hound and will make such a lovely companion. Can you help me get to that point? I promise I’m worth the effort.

Oswald (on trial)

Hi, I’m Oswald! If you take me home, get ready for me to ask you for pats at every opportunity – but with my big puppy dog eyes, I’m sure you won’t be able to resist! I don’t much like those small dogs, but I adore being around humans and I’m friendly with other big dogs too. I’ll be sure to greet you with enthusiasm every time you come home so I know we’ll be best of friends in no time at all!

Hope (puppy)

Hi there, I’m Hope! I’m still a puppy which means I’m playful, inquisitive and love to make new friends. In fact, I love hanging out with all breeds of dogs and I don’t mind cats either!

When I was just a young pup, I had an injury to my back legs and I need some help with knowing when I need to go to the toilet (and where!). Because of that, I’m looking for a patient and compassionate human (or humans!) who will help me get into a toileting groove.

Despite my injury, I’m still a happy girl who loves to play, run around and be a normal puppy, so a home with a backyard is a must! I am currently in foster care with another greyhound, so if you have a doggy friend for me that would be just swell!

Deanie

Hi, I’m Deanie. I was a bit fearful of everything when I first came to Greyhound Rescue, but with the love and care of all the vollies I’m slowly learning about the big wide world and building my confidence. I’m still a timid girl though, so I’m looking for a very special home where my people can give me plenty of space and let me take things at my own pace. That means for now I’d prefer a home without small kids, and where I’m the only dog – although if you have a chilled out big-dog brother for me, that might be okay too.

Are you the special home I’m looking for? Get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

Margot with Zephyr

Margot Undercliffe with greyhound Zephyr

Greyhound Rescue (GR) made it to the finals for ‘Outstanding Rescue Group’ in the Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards 2019.

These awards showcase excellence and innovation in rescue. In its second year, the program attracted more than 1,000 entries.

To get this far, GR volunteer Margot Undercliffe put together a knock-out submission which took 25 hours, but she said it was “worth it” given the incredible team effort by GR volunteers.

“Being a finalist for this category is well-deserved recognition for the incredible work GR’s dedicated team of volunteers undertake in the many areas of running a successful animal rescue,” said Margot. Read More »

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’m currently living it up in foster care and oh boy, pet life is just great. I love asking my foster humans for pats, but I also just love hanging out with my humans while they’re doing their own thing. I’m fine when left alone so I don’t mind being an only dog, but I do love going on new adventures too!

I get on well with the bigger dogs I’ve met but I’m not such a fan of those small fluffy dogs, so best you don’t have any of them at home, please. I wouldn’t mind living in a big apartment, but if you happen to have a bit of outside space where I can sniff around, I think that would be pretty much perfect!

A note from Echo by his foster carers:

I am a bit of an oddball, love a good roach and I’m all about the chill life with a side of play! I’m happy for you to come and go and I’ll just have a snooze while you’re gone – but, as soon as you are back be prepared to play!

I love food, especially toast – don’t even consider having some without making me some too. I do love some pats and cuddles but also don’t want you too much in my space all the time. I’ve come a long way with enjoying affection, I’m a fan of it now but, just take it slow with me.

Sometimes I’m made of velcro and will follow you around. I’m really good on the lead and on walks but, I don’t like most other dogs or cats. I love to go on adventures – I know the car equals a fun time, I love it. I’ve visited lots of people and I enjoy it a lot!

I’d love to find my forever home – I’m definitely the goodest of boys!
