Our sweet Melman seems to have come down with something… or so he thinks... That’s right, poor Melman is love sick! There’s only one cure for his illness and that’s a loving home where he can be spoilt for the rest of his life!
Of course the gorgeous Melman isn’t really sick, but he’ll be sure to give you those puppy dog eyes to get what he wants! All Melman wants from his home is a comfy bed to lie on, lots of pats when he wants them and a never ending supply of toys! Is that too much to ask?! Melman is currently living in a foster home and learning the way of the world. He walks nicely on the lead and is polite to the other dogs he has met on his walks. He would be suitable to living in a home with another large breed dog. Melman is happy to be left on his own for a few hours at a time and would love a backyard to relax in while his family is away. A home with older children who can be respectful of his space and possessions would be okay as well. Melman loves to play with toys and can be seen throwing them about on his own in the yard! He is a very loving, happy boy who can’t wait to be adopted! Will you be the one to take him home?
Update from the foster carer - "Quill the fawn coloured greyhound had been our foster “child” for 7 weeks. We were amazed at how instantly he fitted in to a domestic life. During this time he has never had a single toilet accident and always let us know when he needed to go out for a toilet stop. He is also the gentlest and most loving dog we had met in a very long time. He was sensitive not to bother my elderly father, he was always a perfect gentleman when meeting strangers, including children. He drew admiration and compliments from most passers-by. He loves nothing more than to put his muzzle into your hand for a cuddle or getting a scratch and a brush. He is well behaved with friendly dogs especially with other greyhounds. He will make the most loveable member for a caring family."
Hi I’m Quill and I'm looking for someone to spend the rest of my life with!

Hi there I’m Jak Jak, and I’m looking for a loving home I can teleport to like the incredible hound I know I am.
Sweet as pie and as pretty as a peach, this calm natured girl is looking for somewhere to call her forever home.
Sage is a calm natured and sweet girl who wants nothing more than to find that perfect spot on your couch to curl up in. She can be nervous at first but once she gets to know you, her quirky and funny pawsonailty will shine right through. A quiet home with someone that works casual or part time hours will be the best home for sage, and if you have a calm medium to large doggy friend for her to play with she would love to meet them, this will even help her come out of her shell and excel to be the best pet she can for you. Sage loves nothing more than sunning herself outside, so having a yard for her to retreat to and get her zoomies out will be a big green tick from Sage. She is very good on lead and will walk perfectly for you when you go for walks together.
** I have just gone into a foster home, stay tuned for any updates **
Hi I’m Almond - I’m sweet, I’m small, I can be a little bit nutty but I promise I walnut disappoint you in the form of doggy love.
Hi I’m Orion, I am here looking for someone I can call my own and for somewhere that I can call my home.
I’m a sweet and affectionate boy who loves nothing more than playing with my toys and getting ear scratches from my favourite humans. I am an easy going fella and am quite good at keeping myself entertained, so if you work full time or are shift worker than I am the man for you. I’m a playful kind of hound so I would love nothing more than a backyard to spend my days zooming around and then finding a nice spot in the sun to snooze the rest of the day away. Here at GAP I play well with my fellow hounds, so if you have a medium to large tolerant doggy friend for me to play with I would love to meet them. I will even walk wonderfully on lead for you when we go on our daily walks together and I am very food motivated, this will help me learn new things much quicker.
Yep you saw that right - Bonded pair of gorgeous brothers! Introducing BFF's Cleveland and Groot.

Hi I’m Percy and I’m looking for somewhere I can squeeze in and spend the rest of my life.
I am a super sweet and affectionate hound who can’t wait to find my special own spot on your couch and in your heart. My ideal home will be with someone that is only away from the home some of the time, so if you work/study from home or work part time/casual hours then I’m the guy for you. I really enjoy being indoors and finding that sweet spot to nap in, but of course after I have gotten my zoomies out and sunning myself in my soon to be new backyard. I am a good pairer here at GAP, so if you have a medium to large doggy friend for me to play with then I would love to meet them. I am a playful boy and enjoy nothing more than to throw my toys around the room, and I promise when we go on walks together I will even walk perfect on lead for you.
*I am currently in foster care*

He's been in a foster home for some time now and is ready to move digs with his bag packed waiting for his new family to find him.

Sweet sweet Rollo what a true gem you are. Somebody is going to be so lucky to have you in their life. Rollo is looking for a home with kindness and compassion that will allow him the time he needs to find his feet in the new life called being a pet. He's looking for somebody wanting a companion where they don't want to kiss and hug him all the time and wanting a really great mate and friend to share the long days with.
By allowing Rollo a good few days to settle in at his choice of pace to find his feet, he will be the most amazing kind caring and gentle companion you could ever wish for. Rollo is looking for a quiet home without a lot of activity, that has somebody around alot for him to keep an eye on them. So if you're looking for a lovely companion without the fanfare then Rollo is definitely worth considering. He is perfect for a retired personal/ couple or with somebody in social isolation who needs a companion. Rollo is located in Nowra and is not suited to pet parks units or townhouses.

I am a calm and sweet natured young man and I know I will make someone the happiest they have ever been. My best suited home will be with someone that is home most of the time, so if you work/study from home or work casual/part time hours then I’m the hound for you. I’m super affectionate and love nothing more than to bury my head in you for the best ear scratches you can give. I’m a great pairer here at GAP, in fact if you have a medium-large calm doggy friend for me to hang out with when you’re not home, this will help me excel and learn from them to be the best pet I can for you.

Meet Coco, full of life and full of love looking for forever home.
Coco is an affectionate and playful little girl who wants nothing more than a family to call her own. Her best suited home will be with someone who is home most of the time, so if you work/study from home or work part time/casual hours than she’s the girl for you. She is an active kind of hound who enjoys a nice zoom around a grassed backyard, but don’t be fooled, once she gets her zoomies out of the way she will find a nice spot in the sun to nap the day away. She’s a great friend to the other hounds around here, so if you have a medium-large tolerant doggy friend for her to hang with during the day then she would love to meet them. Coco is a very food motivated hound and will do anything for a snack, so if you want to teach her new things this will come in extremely handy. She loves her daily walks and even knows how to walk perfectly on lead for you.
Nigel meaning "champion" and "dark", seems fitting for the sleek black champion of the couch, Nigel!
Nigel would suit full time hours as he likes to sunbake and watch the world go by, throw his toys around and lick his kong until he falls asleep. He also walks nicely on the lead which is great as he does like his walkies. He would suit an active home, or a home with a backyard who can throw the ball around for him and give him some mental stimulation. He would suit a townhouse or smaller size yard if he got his daily walks. A home with no kids or older kids/teens would be best as he loves his toys.

She may have a common name but this is no common girl. Introducing….Sally.
This sweet natured hound will have you smitten from first pat. She adores her human company and so will require a home where she has company more often than not. This company can be her humans or another medium to large canine. Sally can be a little excitable at times so small children are not suitable to live with her but she can be a sister to older siblings. She has lovely manners indoors and on leash. Sally really just wants a home where her people will give her as much attention as she will give them.

Witnesses have stated the home he is looking for has a yard that is known for zoomies with a lovely comfy bed. They say it has lots of toys and also delicious treats are handed out with the words of “good boy”.
The owners of the home are known to be full time workers, with potential teenage+ children. Med/larger dogs haven’t been seen however Cody is happy to slide this into his mission. This boy is eager to find this home and smooch up on some new people in his life.

Introducing REX, the handsome, gentle giant. Rex at just 3 years old acts like a mature, sophisticated gentle man and his young age could easily take you buy surprise. Although Rex hasn’t been at our facility too long he has settled in like a dream. Speaking of dreams… Rex dreams of a home where he can have a backyard to engage in midday snoozes, random zoomies and a paddle in his clam pool.
He wouldn’t mind if his new family are full-time workers as he enjoys his own company, although no dog has ever said no to their owner being home all day either. Due to Rex’s previous exposure to children he also wouldn’t mind a home with children as long as they are respectful of his space when he needs. Rex is a social boy, although a proper introduction to a canine friend of the medium to large size would be essential. Rex has just recently gone into a foster home in the Newcastle area, stay tuned for updates!

Unlike the legendary hero, this Arthur would very much prefer to be in a single dog household without his knights of the round table - Not to worry, he has enough personality to make up a kingdom!
