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 (I like to swim in my pool AND my water bucket!), my adorable floppy ears, 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, so if you need one of those at your place, I’m at your service! Perhaps you need someone to solve the case of the missing chicken, or the stolen heart? (Spoiler alert: I’m always the culprit there!)

I’m a happy, friendly dude who loves 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. Just like my namesake, I’m very sweet and guaranteed to put a smile on your face! I’m rather dapper too, and my cute white socks mean I’m always dressed up and ready for any occasion.

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.

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!

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!

Some notes from Hope’s foster carers:

Hope is doing really well with toilet training. We have gotten into a toileting/walking schedule – we go for a walk first thing in the morning, again at around lunchtime, just before dinner, and just before bed. She sleeps through the night until about 6.45am with no accidents (I bet a lot of parents with newborns wish they could say that!). She only feels comfortable doing a wee/poo if there are no other dogs around and she is not distracted, so may be more suitable to living in a quiet neighbourhood.

In order to stick to her toileting/walking schedule, she will need a forever home with somebody that can stay with her all day (or can take her to work with them) or can organise for a walker to come during the day so she can stick to her routine. I would recommend that Hope finds her forever home with somebody who has a backyard, so she can pee outside when she needs to/if you want a sleep-in!

Hope loves her food and is an adventurous eater, keen to eat anything from chicken drumsticks and veggies to sardines and oats. This means she is also keen to eat anything she comes across on our walks so will need some training to leave mysterious foodstuffs alone.

Hope loves her toys but can be a bit over-protective with them. Something to keep in mind if she goes to a forever home with another dog. She loves to play and go for a run, but tires easily and will need to be carried so as to not exacerbate her injury. Limit play to 15-20 minutes. Because she is still a puppy, she loves to nip other dogs when she plays, so I would recommend keeping her muzzle on when at the dog park, at least until she is a bit older and grows out of the puppy-tude!

She is very affectionate with humans and loves cuddling up to us on the couch and seeking out pats and neck scratches. She would thrive as an only dog but doesn’t mind the company of another dog – the other dog will have to be prepared to adjust to her bossiness though! Preferably the other dog will be a calmer, non-boisterous dog who is respectful of her space and her physical ability and will retreat when play becomes too much/rough for her.

Hope is still learning to tackle stairs but I think going up/down stairs may be hard for her and/or may hurt because of her injury. We need to carry her on stairs sometimes, so having a forever home where she doesn’t have to deal with any stairs would be best.

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!

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.
