Keanu

Hi there, I’m Keanu! I’m a mature gentleman, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at me, because there’s barely a hint of grey in my sleek black coat. I guess good looks and speed are just a few things I share with my namesake!

Being an older gent I know what I like in life and that’s a home with someone who’s home to spoil me more often than not. If I’m not getting enough attention I sometimes like to remind you by barking! But really what I’m after is just a nice warm home with some comfy spots where I can spend my retirement years getting plenty of TLC. Maybe we can even watch some TV together… the Matrix, perhaps?

Some notes from Keanu’s foster family:

  • Keanu is settling in nicely into our home.
  • Likes: chasing balls, car rides (including sticking his head out the window!); sleeping/napping; walkies around our neighbourhood; BBQ chicken; yoghurt/PB on his lickimat; face scratches and pats; vegging out on his own
  • Dislikes: tiles/slippery surfaces (he is vary careful and walks slowly); when his favourite toy is out of reach (he lets us know by barking at us to get it out for him!); when dinner is taking too long (he sometimes gets too excited and barks)
  • He has met many other small dogs and after a slow introduction he is very relaxed around them. He still barks at some dogs during our walks so we are doing some training with him in that area. We also training him to “stay”, respond to “yes”, “walk” and “dinner”, and reducing unnecessary barking by rewarding good behaviour.
  • Keanu would make a great apartment dog. He is familiar with the lift and has proven that he doesn’t need much room or a backyard, as long as he goes on regular walks and can go to the bathroom on a balcony or common grass area. I would also recommend he live near a fenced dog park or similar area so he can chase his ball around, preferably on his own/at off-peak times.
  • He currently has a stiff back leg and is taking osteosupport pills to assist his joints.

Elwood

Hello there, I’m Elwood! I’m a super friendly boy who just can’t resist asking you for lots of pats and attention. I’m living it up in foster care at the moment where I’m learning the ropes of pet life. I’m getting along great with my houndie foster sister too – in fact I just love hanging out with other greyhounds!

I’m enjoying apartment living at the moment and so far I’ve mastered the stairs, toilet training and I’m even getting the hang of the sights and sounds of the city. So if my forever home is an inner city apartment, that’s fine by me!

Strudel

Hi there! My name’s Strudel… I guess they call me that because I’m as sweet and popular as a tasty dessert!

I’m a big handsome boy with bucketloads of personality. I love toys, playtime, treats, people – in fact, there’s not too many things I don’t like! I love hanging out with people and charming them with my outgoing ways. My bubbly personality and entertaining ways have won over all the Greyhound Rescue volunteers and if you take me home, I’m sure they’ll win you over in no time at all too!

I don’t have much experience yet with walks or other dogs, so I’m still learning about those things. I don’t really know what to make of other dogs at the moment, so I’d prefer a home where I’m the only one. The sights and sounds of the city might be a bit too overstimulating for me, so I’d prefer a home in the suburbs with some people who can help me learn about walkies in a fun and gradual way, maybe with some chicken treats to help encourage me? Oh boy, I would LOVE that!

Ivar

Hi there, I’m Ivar! You might have noticed that I have a big love heart on my side – it matches my loving personality! I’m a friendly boy who loves spending time with my humans and asking you for lots of gentle pats and cuddles. With my adorable face, you won’t be able to resist bowing to my every request!

I might be named after a viking but I don’t quite have the bravery of one. I can be a little nervous about new experiences, although once I’m past that I open up very quickly. I’m lucky enough to be in foster care where I’m learning all about the good life, mastering the stairs and even roaching now and again!

I get along well with other dogs, I’m even sharing my foster home with one and I love having a playmate – so I’d be happy to share my forever home with a doggie friend too!

James Potter

Hi there, I’m James Potter! I arrived at Greyhound Rescue with my siblings Harry and Lily Potter. As you’d expect from my name, I’m an outgoing guy with a heart of gold, and I’m fiercely loyal to my friends – which you’re sure to be just as soon as we meet!

I’m a playful young buck who loves his toys, so I’d be super happy to share some playtime with you. I get along great with other greyhounds so if you have a doggie friend at yours, that’s fine by me! I’m still learning how to be around other breeds of dog because I haven’t spent much time around them yet, but with a bit of training I think one day we could be friends. I get along great with older kids too!

Harry Potter

Hi there, I’m Harry Potter! I arrived at Greyhound Rescue with my siblings Lily and James Potter. Like my namesake, I’m a kind and friendly boy who loves my friends more than anything in the world. Well, almost anything… I’m a pretty big fan of food too!

I don’t have a fancy lightning scar on my forehead, but if you ask me, my best feature is my ears. I have an ear-do for every occasion… straight up, pulled back, one up one down – the combinations are endless!

I might not play Quidditch, but I’m still a great Seeker if what you’re hiding is treats – mmm, I love those!! I love toys as well, and I’d be so happy if we could share some playtime together. I’m a bit of a snuggler too and I love asking you for lots of pats and attention.

I get along great with other greyhounds, but I still need some practice with other dogs, especially the small kind. It’s not that I don’t want to be friends, I just haven’t met very many of them and I’m still learning what they are.

I have rather sensitive feet due to allergies and they can get a bit uncomfortable from walking in sand and grass. I’m sure Madame Pomfrey would have them sorted in a second, but seeing as we’re not at Hogwarts, it just means I need to wear boots when I’m walking. Don’t worry though, it certainly doesn’t slow me down at all, and I’m sure you’ll agree they look rather cute on me!

Gnocchi

Hi there, my name is Gnocchi – I guess they call me that because I look good enough to eat!

I’m a pretty timid boy, but I’m lucky enough to be hanging out in a wonderful foster home where I’m learning all about pet life. My forever humans will also need to give me willing to give me plenty of time and space so I can get to know them at my own pace. I know it’s tempting to shower me in affection when I’m this cute, but I might find that a bit scary while I’m settling in, so my humans need to let me come to them when I’m ready for pats.

Because I’m a bit shy, I prefer the quiet life and I wouldn’t like a home in the inner city – it’s the ‘burbs for me, and I’d love if you have a backyard where I can chill out if I’m not too keen on walks.

Dorian

Hi there, I’m Dorian Grey! As you might expect with a name like that, I’m a handsome boy whose looks will certainly charm you. But unlike the original, I’m beautiful both inside and out.

I’m a young boy who is still getting to know the big wide world. I wasn’t in the best way when I first came to kennels and I’m hoping my new home can continue giving me plenty of TLC to help get my fur looking nice and healthy.

I don’t have the confidence of the original Dorian Grey and I can be quite quiet and reserved when it comes to new people and experiences. Now that I’m getting used to kennel life at GR HQ, I’ve started to show the volunteers my playful side, which seems to make them very happy. That’s fine by me, I think toys are great!

I’m looking for a home with some gentle humans who will give me time, space and plenty of love so to help me come out of my shell at my own pace. If that sounds like your place, I would be ever so grateful. Once I learn that I’m safe with you, I’ll be forever yours.

Darragh

Hi there, I’m Darragh. I’m a sensitive soul who needs a bit of time to come out of my shell. I want to learn to trust humans but I’ll need some people who are willing to be patient with me, please – it’s all a bit new to me at the moment and I can find the big wide world a little bit scary.

I get along great with other greyhounds and I wouldn’t mind sharing my home with one of them – maybe they can help me learn the ropes of pet life? I don’t think I’m much of a city slicker though, so I’d prefer a nice quiet home in the suburbs with a backyard that I can chill out in.

What do you say, are you the nice peaceful home I’m looking for? With plenty of love and patience, I promise the wait will be worth it.
