Troy (Nelson) – Homed

Nelson has found his forever home with Susie.

Troy or ‘Nelson’ as he has come to be called by his foster carers, is a loving and social dog. However soon he will require a new foster home- or ideally a forever home as he has waited a while now.

They write “Nelson has the placid and almost regal air a greyhound provides. At 4 years old, he is at that great age of having both youthful energy & not needing constant attention. He is quite happy to just hang out. He responds to his name, will sit (the greyhound equivalent of) and knows all too well the ‘w’ word.  He has lived with different dogs without any troubles in our time together. He walks well on the lead, loves car rides and is not a fussy eater. He would make a perfect complement to a family or to any owner wanting an adorable companion who will happily fit into any home, with other dogs and children”. He is not cat friendly.

Troy is currently being fostered in Gosford, NSW.

Troy is:

  • 4 years old (dob May 2008)
  • desexed
  • vaccinated
  • microchipped
  • heartworm tested
  • costs $300

    Troy was so close to being euthanized, saved just in time by GR. This guy is one of the lucky ones and he deserves a forever home soon.
