Jimmy (Homed)

Gentle Jimmy has found the most wonderful forever home with Trisha and John.

Jimmy is a 4 year old super stunning shiny boy. He is currently in foster care with two special needs maltese dogs and other hounds. He gets on well with all the dogs, is very gentle and has taken to home life exceptionally well.  He particularly likes to play with our other foster dog “Lady”. Both Jimmy and Lady were dumped at Blacktown pound together, possibly came from the same from the same trainer. If you were after a pair then these two are proven good mates or Jimmy would equally be happy with another pet or as your own loyal best mate. Most greyhounds rarely bark but Jimmy will occasionally alert you but only if something is out of the ordinary.

Jimmy is laid back, loves his daily walk and loves nothing more than to be fussed over.


Lady and Jimmy are proven best friends and have been with us for a while in foster care. Both get on very well with other dogs, small fluffy dogs other greyhounds and a whippet. Lady and Jimmy love their toys and love their daily walks. They would be ok to be adopted separately but it would be ideal to home them together since they have been living together since entering greyhound rescue.

The perfect family for Jimmy and Lady is dog savvy couple, where one person is either stay-at home (or where someone will be home for most of the day- maybe one person being a part time worker). They will need to fully integrate the dogs into their family, not leaving them outside for long periods alone because Lady in particular loves human interaction. Jimmy also loves human fussing but is a little less needy (Lady is quite a rare female).

A family that can put the hard yards in to show them love, affection, exercise, firm but kind discipline and give them time to relax will be richly rewarded with two intelligent, affectionate friends for life.

And as Jimmy and Lady are CAT FRIENDLY they could live happily with one cat. If you think you are that family, or may know a family that is, please view their profile at www.greyhoundrescue.com.au/category/dogs-available/cat-friendly/ or give Peter a call on 0412 562 104.

    Jimmy sounds great. I have been looking for a male about that age who is cat and dog friendly. we have a greyhound and are wanting another one so she has a friend. I would love to know more. Is being in Vic a issue?

    Jimmy is in Sydney but a Victorian adoption is not out of the question.

    That is great news. I will send an email with all my details. I am very interested in either Jimmy or Rocky.

    John and I are delighted! What a handsome and gentle man.
    He came to work with me this morning to meet everyone..and he loved all the attention and remained his very calm self.
    We are lucky… a great feeling. I hope others will soon know how it feels to adopt a Greyhound! I can recommend the happy <:
