Mint

Hello, I’m Mint! I arrived at Greyhound Rescue with my sister Madison. I’m a total social butterfly so if you’re looking for a pal to go on fun adventures, brunch dates, or just enjoy some Netflix and chill time, I’m your girl! I get along with all kinds of people and dogs, so I’m not too fussy about the kind of home I’m after – just as long as you’re ready to give me all the love and attention I’m looking for!

Some notes from Mint’s foster carers:

  • Mint is a sweet girl. She is very affectionate and loves all humans including children. She loves going for adventures in the car.
  • She has come great strides with toilet training since she’s been with us. She likes to toilet after her meals and on her walks with us and her best dog pal Lucy. She has learned to use a grass mat for toileting on our balcony.
  • Mint loves to play, chew on toys and do zoomies when she is in the mood.
  • She is comfortable in our one-bedroom apartment, but we think she would love a backyard for extra gallivanting (preferably with a dog pal).
  • Mint is good with stairs, but like most hounds, can get a little stuck/stubborn from time to time.

Barry

G’day, I’m Barry! With a name like mine you might think I’d be a bit of a larrikin, but don’t be fooled – I’m actually quite a gentle soul. I’m still learning all about pet life and I can be a bit timid about new things sometimes, so I’m looking for a nice quiet home with some kind patient people who will help bring me out of my shell. Once I get to know you, I’m ever so sweet and just love to sidle up to you for some gentle pats. I’m not much of a fan of those small dogs but I do like the lady greys, so if you have a nice lady friend at home for me, that sounds like it could be quite nice!

Bae

Hi there, I’m Bae… and if you adopt me I’m sure to be your BAE in no time at all! I’m an outgoing boy whose favourite time of day is definitely playtime – it combines my two favourite things, people and toys! If you have a few squeaky toys at home and some time for a few games, I’ll be oh so happy!

I get along great with other greys, so I’d be happy to have a greyhound pal in my new home. I haven’t met too many smaller dogs in my life so I’m still learning what they are right now, but I think we could be friends someday too!

Tiggs

Hi there, I’m (tiny) Tiggs! I’m quite a petite boy (that’s how I got my nickname) but don’t worry, what I lack in size I make up for in personality! I’m a friendly chap who loves the company of people. I don’t mind if you live in an apartment or a small house – if you have a comfy bed (or three) for me then I’d love to chill with you anytime.

Some notes from Tiggs’ foster carers:

Tiggs loves going for walks and exploring new areas and parks (and smells!). He loves medium length walks and a good play session. It doesn’t take too much to tire him out, so he is likely well suited to people with less time for exercise. On play, he LOVES playing, whether it be in the apartment or at the park, his favourite toys being large soft toys and anything that is easy to squeak.

He has adapted well to both of us starting full-time work and not being home as often as we were when he first came home. On this note, he appears to be very comfortable in our apartment. Despite the smaller space, he still loves playing indoors, but we definitely notice how much joy he derives from outdoor play. He finds comfort in lying down almost anywhere in the apartment and having a wide assortment of toys on his bed (toys sometime include household objects which he likes to keep safe for us on his bed!).

Tiggs is very polite with meeting other dogs. He is equally as comfortable keeping his distance from other dogs while he does his own thing as he is meeting them. We think he is a bit of an introvert! Bearing this in mind, he much prefers meeting calm dogs who respect his space rather than overly excited ones. We live in a relatively quiet neighbourhood which we think helps with this.

Tiggs is still learning how to master staircases, and we are undertaking some basic command training and recall which he is slowly picking up.

He loves meeting new people and enjoys receiving attention and affection from strangers.

Badger

Hi there, I’m Badger! I’m a bit of a shy boy who needs a bit of time to learn all about the big wide world and the kindness of humans. I’m looking for a very special home, preferably with just one human who can give me the space I need to get used to things at my own pace. I’d love to have a backyard too, so I can have my own little world to explore without any pressure. If that sounds like you, I promise that with a bit of love and patience, I’ll be worth the wait.

Cohen

Hi, I’m Cohen! I’m a friendly boy who just loves hanging around with people – especially if they have food, that’s my favourite!! I’m a bit of a character, and I’m sure to charm you with my adorable quirky ways just like I’ve charmed the Greyhound Rescue vollies – whether it’s my water baby ways (sometimes I like to mix things up and have a splash in my water bucket, even if it’s right next to my pool) or how I greet you with so much enthusiasm (I might even give you some kisses!)

I wasn’t in the best way when I came to Greyhound Rescue – I have some teeth missing and I’m still working on getting my coat looking all nice and healthy, so I’m looking for a home where I can get plenty of TLC to help me get back to my best. I hope the C stands for chicken! I get along well with dogs of all sizes as well, just as long as they’re well behaved and not too in my face.

What do you say, are you ready to help me live my best life? I’m sure we’ll have so much fun together!

Magnum

Hi there, I’m Magnum! I’ve heard I’m named after a famous TV detective – like him, I think I’m a pretty smart dapper guy who would look pretty good in a Hawaiian shirt! I’m a friendly guy too, and I love playtime and hanging out with humans. I get on well with other greyhounds too, so if you have one of them at home maybe we could be good friends. I’ve met a few small dogs and I’m doing okay with them so far, but I think I could use a bit more practice, so best you don’t have any of them at home for now!

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.
