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

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, but until then, I’m lucky enough to be enjoying life in foster care. 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!

Mint (on trial)

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.

Get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

How about a free bag of SavourLife dog food with your adoption? Just make your enquiry via Mint’s SavourLife profile. For every finalised adoption, SavourLife will give Greyhound Rescue a donation and you a free bag of food!

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 and my dreamy, soulful eyes are guaranteed to melt your heart.

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 peaceful home with some kind 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 (on trial)

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!

I’m a big fan of food, so if you’ve got a bit too much chicken at home or you need a taste tester, I’m very happy to help you out with that. I’m not a big fan of being at home for long hours by myself though, so I’d prefer a home with someone who is home a bit more often – I’m pretty sure you’ll want to spend all your time with me anyway!

Get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.
