Junior

Hi there, I’m Junior! You can tell I’m the goodest boy, because I’ll sit for you! I’m a pretty chilled out dude, I do love my toys but I’m also just happy hanging out and lapping up all the attention. I’m dreaming of a home with lots of space so I can practice some new tricks, so I don’t think the apartment life is for me. While I get on well with other big dogs, they tell me I’ve not quite learned my sharing manners yet (ahem) so probably best as an only doggo for now until I can be the goodest boy I can be. Besides, once you meet me – you won’t want to share me with anybody else!

Fonzie (on trial)

Aaaaaay! The name’s Fonzie, aka the resident cool guy here at GR HQ. 😎 Not only am I one cool dude, but I’ve got the looks too – you might notice my distinctive ‘roman nose’, I think it adds to my charm. I’m most certainly ‘Mr Personality’ with my playful nature and how much I just lap up any attention. Being the cool guy that I am, I don’t need any of those small, fluffy kinds of dogs cramping my style but you could probably persuade me to share the limelight with another greyhound or larger dog.

Sasha

Hello! I’m Sasha, a cheeky little miss ready to steal your heart! At only 18 months old I am still a playful baby – I love meeting new people and toys… I LOVE toys! Especially if you have a squeaky toy. Oh boy, I LOOOOOVE those! I haven’t gotten to meet many other dogs until now – so I’m really a bit unsure around new dogs. I’d love a home that can take the time to teach me that dogs are friends too, just like people are! I’d also love to go to a home in a quieter neighbourhood so I can concentrate super hard on learning what this pet business is about without too many distractions. I promise I’ll pay you back with lots of cuddles!

Jimmy

Hi! I’ve heard there are lots of famous people called Jimmy… Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Page, Jimmy Little, even a President… but you haven’t met the best of them yet. Oh, haven’t I introduced myself? That would be me, I’m Jimmy! Since I arrived at the kennels, I’ve been using my smooth moves and big brown eyes to win over the volunteers. I’m a sweet, affectionate and gentle boy. When I’m not lapping up attention, you’ll find me running around with a toy or enjoying a treat. I’m not too bad with other large dogs, but I’m a bit unsure of smaller kids and little dogs, it’s not that I don’t like them… I’ve just never met them before so maybe while I get used to them, best I don’t share my forever home with them.

Johnnie (on trial)

Hi! I’m Johnnie, a cheeky sort of chap with model good looks! As you can see – I’m really ridiculously good looking and I have the best buns of steel you will ever see and I’m not afraid to show them off. When I’m not flaunting my assets, I love food… toys… food… and oh, did I mention toys? If you have either of those things, I’ll be your best friend forever. Now, when it comes to other dogs I’m not too phased by them, in fact, I mostly ignore them and prefer to hang out with my people and focus on my toys and food!

A big thank you to Innopets!

We’d love to thank Innopets for their generous donation of Lickimats and Throbizz balls for our enrichment program.

Paula, the lucky volunteer who got to distribute the toys said “The Lickimats were a hit, Kwazi had a few licks followed by prancing around with the Lickimat in his mouth as if he was showing it off to the world. The other hounds loved them, it kept them occupied and focused until the Lickmats were licked totally clean. The mats proved to be a great enrichment activity for the hounds.”

Enrichment activities are important for our hounds; it keeps their minds active and gives them something to do during the day. If you would like to donate some toys to our enrichment programs please get in touch.
