Are you a full-time worker? Perhaps a couple without children? Are you looking for a FUN loving hound that is just as sensitive as he is playful?
Meet Scotty! This beautiful guy is 6 years old and can’t wait to find his forever home!
Meet the exuberant Di Di! This gorgeous young lady is full of life and would love to join you on life’s many adventures.
Di Di is very affectionate and loves a good scratch behind the ears. Her favourite thing in the world is toys and she can often be seen running around with one in her mouth! She has a lot of energy and would benefit from a backyard and daily enrichment including walks. She can be strong on the lead however is now used to wearing a harness which helps greatly when taking her out for one of her beloved walks. Di Di enjoys coming inside and lying on the lounge when her family is home however would need a backyard to spend the day in and give her room for her zoomies she is so fond of. She can settle on her own for only a couple of hours so would be suitable for a family who work from home. Alternatively she can settle better with a friend and would be able to be alone for longer hours if she had a canine friend to hang out with. Di Di has gotten along well with the other greyhounds she has met and would be suitable for a home with another large breed dog. Due to her larger than life personality she would be suitable for a family with older (and taller) children or children who have a good amount of experience with large breed dogs. Di Di is a fun young girl who would love someone to give her the time and space to let her personality shine.
*IN FOSTER CARE*
Not so aptly named Leo (who is really a Sagittarius) is much less the lion and more the mouse in this story. He's small and a little timid but he's full of love and kindness!
Beauty is currently living in a home with a small yard and is very happy so a townhouse would be fine. She would be suited to a family with older children and would prefer to be an only dog. She is happy to be left home alone with some toys and treats. Beauty absolutely adores people but would be suited to an experienced owner. Beauty's foster carer says Beauty loves a walk each day and also loves to lay on a blanket on the patio.
Don't let my name full you, I will NOT be living in the Jungle.
Hi! My names Tarzan and I am a VERY handsome boy. I enjoy being lavished in attention and have my humans bring me new toys to play with. I am very bed oriented and even understands the humans when they make a polite suggestion that I go to mine (SEE I'm not just pretty, I'm also VERY smart).
Buster is a very sweet boy who has spent some time in foster care and settled very well into family life with another female medium sized dog. He loved the dog beds and was a great companion for Missy who is an older dog. We have discovered that Buster needs a home where there are no chickens and preferable a good fenced yard to contain him when you are not home.
Buster loves toys and will play with them all day if you have the time. He has met some of those smaller breed dogs and was very well behaved. He loves going for walks and will walk beautifully on a lead.
With a fiery red coat and bubbly personality to match, this active girl is ready to fill your life with an eruption of love and joy. Lava is about to embark on a journey into the world of foster care so stay tuned for updates!
While she may seem to lay dormant at first, once this girl gets to know you she’ll surprise you with an explosion of energy and excitement sure to put a smile on your face. Lava’s tail may only be small but it moves around with a mind of its own! She is constantly wagging her little tail and wiggling her butt with excitement. The way to this girl’s heart is through her toy box! She can often be found throwing her toys in the air and running around with them in her mouth. Lava needs a backyard in her new home as she loves to run around and chase toys. Due to her exuberant personality Lava would be best suited to a home with experienced large breed dog owners and no young children. She is happy to be left on her own for a few hours at a time. Lava has gotten along well with the other greyhounds she has met at our site and would be happy to share her life and backyard with another large breed pooch. Having a friend to spend the day with can help her to settle for longer hours without her human family around. Lava walks nicely on the lead and loves to explore the neighbourhood. She is a very sweet girl and will make a beautiful pet once she settles into her new home.
Introducing the most handsome greyhound at GAP Western Sydney! With sparkling light brown eyes, Duplo is bound to catch your eye!
How to build a Duplo greyhound – some playful bricks, some goofy bricks, some cuddly bricks…and you’ve got yourself a Duplo greyhound! True to his name, he is a very playful boy.
With his happy and affectionate personality and those incredible ears with a mind of their own, this handsome fella is the whole package!
Dukie is a super friendly and happy boy who will bring joy and laughter to your home! He has a playful side and loves to chase his favourite squeaky toys, but after a few throws he is ready for some pats and affection or maybe a nap. He loves his humans so much that he would prefer not to be left alone all day, so a home where someone is home more often than not are best suited. However, if you have another medium/large dog at home for him to hang out with, full-time workers would be just fine by Dukie! Kids who are older or experienced enough to handle Dukie’s excitable nature would definitely enjoy his goofy side. Dukie loves spending time indoors with his family and promises to be well behaved in the house if he is allowed in for some quality time! Dukie loves his food and his walkies and has even mastered the stairs.
When your heart skips a beat, an overwhelming feeling of emotion washes over you and the outside world fades away- that’s called the spark. Many people search for years to find a spark with that special someone, but you won’t have to look any further than this gorgeous boy. Tall, dark and handsome our Sparky is the knight in shining armour (fur) you’ve been dreaming of.
Sparky is a very special boy with an electrifying personality. He starts his greetings with a spinning tail and dancing feet, followed by a lean against you to encourage pats. Sparky likes to place his adorable face in your hands, slowly closing his eyes as you give him chin pats. The next move is your decision- walk or cuddles on the lounge? Sparky likes to go for short walks down the road and zoomies in the backyard. Sparky has a lot of energy and would benefit from being in a relationship with an active partner willing to take him for daily walks and a backyard for his zoomies would be ideal. Once the adventurous part of your date is over he likes to settle down on the lounge for a long night of cuddles and watching romantic movies (perhaps Lady and the Tramp?) Sparky prefers not to be away from his significant other for more than a few hours a day. He gets along well with the other greyhounds at our site but still prefers to be with his humans more often than not. Sparky is one of a kind and you’ll be falling head over heels for him on your first date with him.
Don’t let his name fool you this guy likes to move! Tank is an active boy who likes to run so an active person is essential. Ideally he would be perfect for someone who likes to kick the day off with a power walk or small jog before they head off to work
Being a strong Lad, Tank will need someone who has previous big dog experience and someone who understands that he will need a tad of work which will pay off dividends in time.
If you’re thinking about a dog for adoption, or looking at rescue dogs for adoption, then consider a greyhound as they have many practical benefits and rewards:
