While his great uncle James may be famous for cultivating the first beer in Australia, our man Squires is famous in his own right. This handsome blonde boy is well known for rolling in the grass on all of his walks, being a fantastic zoomie-er and for being an all-round good boy.
Squires is a big, beautiful young boy who is a lot of fun. He loves to go for walks and is very gentle on the lead, except when he rolls around like a mad man on the ground in freshly cut grass! He is very cheeky and loves to play with toys and dig in the backyard, so he would benefit greatly from daily enrichment and a dig pit. Squires needs lot of room to perform his world famous zoomies so a decent sized backyard would be ideal. He gets along well with the other greyhounds here at our site and would make a nice companion to another large breed dog, however does not get along well with small dogs. He would benefit from living in a low small dog populated suburb. Squires is very good inside the house and settles quickly on his own bed. He can settle on his own in the backyard for long periods and would suit a family who work full time. Squires requires a home who is willing to give him lots of daily enrichment, daily walks and is okay with his big personality.
Precious Polly is looking for her forever home, and with her big puppy dog eyes who could resist this gorgeous girl?!
Polly can take some time to warm up to new people but once you have gained her trust she is a friendly and loving companion. She likes to spend her time following her human friend around and would love nothing more than to have a human companion to spend all day with. She prefers not to be left on her own for more than a couple of hours at a time. She enjoys being inside with her family and can settle on her own bed when in the same room. Even in her middle age Polly still loves to run around, go for walks and play with toys so some form of daily enrichment is a must. She would also like to have some outdoor space to stretch her legs before returning to her bed.
*Tiny recently went into foster care with another greyhound named May! Here is an update from his carers: "Tiny is a very affectionate young, handsome boy and is easily won over by a scratch behind the ears and maybe a little cheese. His two greatest loves however are soccer and sleeping.
Tiny has shown he is very polite around other dogs and calm around children. He is a really chilled out dog (unless the is a soccer ball around) and he is content with just laying the day away with you. He could lay anywhere, his bed, hallway, kitchen, grass, dirt, puddle you name it and he has probably laid there. Tiny loves a car ride too, you can take him to the beach or the bush and he’ll love it all.
The name Brock means “Badger”, and we have a feeling that our Brocky might be capable of sleeping for weeks on end like his namesake!
This handsome guy hasn’t been with us for too long and we’re still getting to know him, but he has settled in great and we have found him to be an easy-going boy.
*Charcoal has recently gone into foster care with another greyhound to show her the ropes of pet life! Updates coming soon!*
Are you ready to heat things up? Then our sweet girl Charcoal will be able to assist you with that!!
Did someone say couch potato?
As his name suggests this boy will be lucky to get off the couch!
As his name suggests this guy loves to fly around his yard but soon settles after a while and just enjoys life. Jet enjoys pats and being affectionate with his human companions and if your prepared to take him for a walk in the morning, then he is prepared to sleep in his hammock bed for the rest of the day while your out working. He will take it for the team.
Once you come home be prepared for some greyhound shenanigan's of excitement and be prepared to hear all about his day on your afternoon walk. He is then happy to get into his tucker and chill with you while you scroll through Netflix.
If it’s character you’re after then this big gorgeous boy is your man! Arnold is an outgoing lad who enjoys being outdoors and enjoys the sunshine. He has been known to be in a world on his owns at times which is why he needs a home with someone who is active and also has a bit of experience. He would be da bomb for someone who gets out for walks am and pm or someone who does Winter sport and like to get fit . He may even out jog you at times!
Arnold would suit a single person or couple that has previous animal experience and is active and enjoys adventures. And lets be honest - he really is a blokey type bloke :)
Starc is an active boy who likes to stay fit, he requires a home that is relatively active that can nurture that and have the ability to walk him as he can be a bit strong on he lead. That will change with time invested in him and you'll have a cracker of a dog in no time. Starc is an inquisitive boy who’ll enjoy exploring a backyard and discover all the wonderful things on offer but also loves to cuddle up and enjoy hanging out with you. Due to his nature, he will require a full size yard and would prefer to be the only pet and says no thanks to pocket pets and cats.
+++ This photo is not him however he looks very similar. We are waiting for his photos.
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.
Meet Jersey! Ready for the next chapter in her life…… with you!!!
Jersey is looking for the following attributes in her forever family. She needs a home where someone is home more often than not such as someone who works from home or is retired.
Delightful and charming is the little old lady Sophie. At 8 years old Sophie has experienced most of what life has to offer but is now ready to settle down with the love of her life (you!) With her happy smile and beautiful red coat, this teeny tiny pooch is ready for the next stage of her life as a pet.
Sophie can take a little bit of time to warm up to new people but once she does she never leaves your side! Sophie is always so happy to see her human friends and greets you with her big smile. Sophie settles well on her own for a few hours at a time and would suit a home where people are out of the house for half the day. She would love to have a backyard to spend her time alone in however once people are home she settles well inside the house as well. Sophie likes to go for walks and walks beautifully on a loose lead as she trots along beside you. She has gotten along well with the other greyhounds she has met at our site and would be happy to live with other medium/large sized dogs. Sophie can be a little bit fussy with her food but once you figure out her favourite treats (so far sardines and liver treats!) she will be happy to chow down on those. Due to her initial shy nature we think she would be best suited to a home with older children only who can give her the space and respect she needs.
Dwep alert! Did someone say allrounder? Then look no further than young Bell!
Young 2 years 10 month
If you have a free spot on the lounge Gus is the man for you!
This lazy boy loves sleeping and will find a spot anywhere to have a snooze.
Miss Darcy Doo! This gorgeous girl has a lot of love and fun filled times to give. Darcy has found herself back with us (no fault of her own) after living in an apartment for 2 months. She would suit multiple lifestyles as long as her humans were home more often than not and have a comfy bed in the sunshine waiting for her. Darcy has shown to be quite the independent woman and doesn’t mind being an only dog to lap up all the attention. If other dogs become a little too close to her bubble, she may have a little growl to tell them to back off. We feel teenage+ or no children would be best as Darcy appreciates the quiet times. If you feel Darcy sounds like your type, she is available at our Wyee facility now.
Big Dan the man! This strapping young lad has made himself at home very quickly here at GAP headquarters.
Danny is quite enthusiastic about life still at almost 3yo and will benefit from some ongoing guidance with lots of treaties. Danny has lived in a home with another greyhound and adjusted quite well.
Introducing lovely Lacey! 3-year-old loves to do zoomies, walks beautifully on loose lead and doesn’t bat an eyelid at passing dogs or traffic sounds, and enjoys lots of enrichment especially things to chew and allocated areas to dig!
Lacey is happy to share her new home with a new medium/large canine brother or sister pending a meet and greet. If you have another dog at home for her to hang out with, Lacey is suitable for casual or part time workers. Lacey is a very sweet and affectionate girl with an occasional goofy side which older, respectful kids would enjoy. She loves spending time indoors and requires a home without too many stairs to conquer each day.
Cookies and cakes and bagels and doughnuts. Muffins and buns and pies and cinnamon rolls. There is so much to choose from when it comes to sweet treats. But let us assure you, never will you ever lay eyes on a more perfect and delicious little Tartlet.
At just 4-years-young and full of joy and playfulness, there is nothing stale about this girl. She is best known for sticking to you like icing on a cupcake asking for lots of pats and attention (and being so adorable she usually gets what she wants!). Despite her huge love for her humans, Tartlet is also fine to hang out at home for a few hours during the day and is suitable for part-time or causal workers. If you already have another medium/large playful dog at home, Tartlet would be happy to hang out with them for longer hours pending a meet and greet. When you get home she will delight you with her excitable zoomies and contagious happiness! Older, respectful kids who would enjoy Tartlet’s playful and goofy side would be just fine by her.
We're all familiar with the excertric and lovely Bindi Irwin, and just as out-going, happy and energetic is our Bindi Greyhound. These two ladies share a lot in common when it comes to their personalities. They both love dogs, they're both little pocket-rockets, and they're both super loved and adored by all that knows them.
Bindi is such a sweet girl that is happy to share her space with another med/lrg canine friend or with someone home more often than not. she has spent time in a foster home with another greyhound and is pretty accustomed to having company most of the time.
Are you looking to heal someone's soul as much as they'll heal yours? Well as it goes, Apollo is the Greek God of healing and our boy needs someone special to finally give him the life he deserves, once and for all.
Apollo, known affectionately as Polly, initially came to us at GAP in 2018 and spent some time in a home before landing back here in 2019 by no fault of his own. Despite being one of our longest residents and a big sweetheart, he is yet to find his perfect family.
