*IN FOSTER CARE*
If you’re one to enjoy wet slobbery greyhound kisses then this is the girl for you! This happy little vegemite is Melissa, at nearly 3yo she has a lot to learn but she takes just about everything in her stride. She is quite the exuberant type and has a lot of love to give. She has adjusted to the GAP life well and is often seen laying in the winter sunshine. Melissa doesn't appreciate other canines getting to close to her personal bubble and prefers them to keep their distance. If they do get too close, she may have a little growl.
Meet the bubbly Frances, a super fun and excitable young girl searching for her forever home.
Frances is a lovely young girl who can settle on her own for a few hour at a time, suiting a home where people are only out for part of the day. She loves to play with toys and go for walks so some form of daily enrichment is essential. As she loves to do zoomies she would benefit from being in a home with a backyard. Frances has met a few greyhounds at our site and is better suited to a large breed dog who is calm and respectful. Frances is a very sweet and affectionate young girl who would make a lovely companion.
Tiny, friendly and great indoors is the marvellous Mary.
Mary is a small young female who is ready to start her journey as a pet. She is more comfortable being around her humans and would be best suited to a home where her family are always around. Mary is happy being outside in the yard with you but prefers to spend her time roaching on her bed inside the house. We think she may be suitable to apartment or townhouse living. Mary likes to play with toys and eat treaties. She is good on lead and would only require a few short walks per day.
Energetic, exuberant and extremely cute is the sweet little Ellie! This young girl is searching for her forever home and can’t wait to meet you!
Ellie is a very sweet young girl who is very human social. She walks well on a loose lead and enjoys playing with toys in the backyard. Ellie has gotten along well with the other greyhounds she has met at our site and would be happy to spend her day with a canine companion. She prefers not to be left on her own for too long and would suit a home where her people are home for most of the day. With a friend she could settle for longer periods of time. Ellie is comfortable inside and has settled both on her bed and in a crate.
Elegant, Extravagant, Exceptional! What else can we use to describe our little lady Ella? Following in her brother’s and sister’s footsteps Ella has come to GAP in hope she too can find a place where she can be the centre of attention.
Ella just celebrated her 3rd birthday and is ready to show of her moves to the big wide world. Ella is an excitable, happy girl who loves nothing more than bouncing by your side waiting for another one of those delightful ear scratches. Ella has shown polite manners with other med/large dogs and wouldn’t mind sharing her new home with one should you already have a friendly canine companion. Whilst she is a fairly confident girl, she still needs time adjusting to the pet life, so an owner willing to be patient would be best.
Have you ever wanted your very own magical and adventurous creature? Well look no further than our very own Thunderbird. Ok so we get he is a bit different than Harry Potter’s flying thunderbird but alas this boy is an intelligent and soulful character. Thunderbird will be celebrating his 3rd birthday next month and would love nothing more than to fill your home with wonder and charm.
Thunderbird is a pretty chill guy and can often be found snoozing on his bed whether that is inside the house or out in backyard. He has shown to walk well on leash but at times he can get a bit excited and want to eagerly spread his wings (or should I say legs) and get to his destination faster. Thunderbird has shown polite manners with other greyhounds here at our kennels and wouldn’t mind if his home had a med/large canine companion.
Glossy is very fitting for this stunning, shiny little girl whose coat glimmers in the sun.
At just 3 years old she is as pretty as a flower and just as delicate as one too.
When you hear that jingle on the radio for tiles, what do you sing? “Amber has the answer!” of course! Well.. This Amber may be your answer!
Amber is a young, lovely fawn girl, looking for her home. She is needing someone home more so than not, so a casual worker or someone that doesn’t work would be best for this lovely girl. A home with no children, no other animals and a backyard would make her the happiest, that way she can lap up all your attention and run the house.. Maybe even lay some tiles.
Ebbi is a beautiful affectionate girl who loves cuddles and is looking for someone who is looking for company to share her days with. Some of her daily activities include playing with her toys, laying around the yard, having a bath and dipping her feet in a paddle pool that you are going to buy for her....
Ebbi would be ideal for a retired couple or someone who is home regularly and is a quiet and relaxed lady she is best suited as an only pet as she really doesn't think she needs to share you - or your toast with anyone else. No pocket pets of cats please and she would love a full sized yard all of her own
*Arthur is currently in foster care awaiting his forever home. He is settling in well so far and has really started to come out of his shell!*
Looking for a relaxed, soft, gentle and quirky greyhound who will never pull on lead, jump on you or need lots of walks, and who will be more than happy to quietly and politely chill inside with you all day? Then our Arthur is your man.
Oh boy is this a hot dog! With his gorgeous blue coat and light brown eyes this dude is a total Smokeshow. Introducing the dog of your dreams, Smokey!
Smokey is looking for a home either with part-time/casual working pawrents, or a medium/large canine pal to pass the time with while full-time workers are out of the house. Smokey is a relaxed and gentle soul, however he is happy to share his home with older kids who may enjoy his occasional playful bursts. We hope you have room on your couch as our Smokey loves the indoors and has been known to make himself at home on the sofa! And did we mention he loves his treaties? Smokey will happily be your live-in vacuum cleaner and tidy up any of those pesky crumbs for you. Being a food-lover, Smokey is easily to train and eager to impress you to get that yummy snack.
No, this is not a trick. Not an illusion nor sleight of hand. No, your eyes do not deceive you. That’s right, tiny Trixie really is this adorable.
Little Trixie would prefer her humans not to magically disappear for long hours during the day, and is suited for part time or causal workers at most. However if you happen to already have another medium/large canine at home, Trixie doesn’t mind being left alone longer. When you make your grand re-appearance, she will always make you feel welcome with her puppy love! Trixie is more of a gentle companion than a playful pal, however she is happy to share her new home with older, respectful kids.
At only 1.5 years old, this handsome little reptile is hoping his forever home is just around the corner. However there will be no need for a terrarium or tank for this Turtle, as he will make himself at home right on your couch!
Turtle can be a bit shy and overwhelmed when exposed to new people and places and will need someone willing to take things slowly with him. However just like his namesake, once he comes out of his shell you will find a soft and affectionate little Turtle! If there is one thing we know for sure about our Turtle, it’s that he loves his food! He enjoys everything from training to enrichment – as long as there is food involved he is a happy participant. Turtle is after a quieter home without too much going on beyond the fence and without young kids disturbing the serenity, although another canine around his size wouldn’t be out of the question. Provided you live in a quiet neighbourhood, Turtle is suitable for full time workers. He enjoys spending time indoors with his humans, however a backyard is also required as a place for him to retreat to when he needs a break.
3 year old Nutsy has certainly earned his name and is known around GAP for his nuts-about-life attitude.
He is a very happy boy and just likes to make it known – he hasn’t quite learned that it is not appropriate to jump up on you with excitement, but he’s figuring it out.
Contrary to what you may think, Silly is actually quite a sensible little girl who hasn’t caused a single fuss since she arrived here at GAP. She has been known to have the occasional bout of excitement when she first see’s her fav hoomans, but she is very quick to settle right back down and do only polite girl things.
At just 2 years old, this little lady still has a lot to see and do in this world and with that, a lot to learn. She can be a little shy as she hasn’t had much adventure so she will need a patient and quiet family that will build her confidence and life experiences. For this reason, we think a home without small children would be best, so we don’t overwhelm her.
And the biggest leaner award goes to…. CHLOE!
If you haven’t heard of the greyhound lean, this girl will show it of perfectly. As soon as she gets out for a walk the lean comes into play and she sticks by you like glue. At only 2yo, Chloe still has a lot to learn and the big world can be a scary for a little girl.
Are you ready for the oh so precious and graceful Sammy?!
At 5.5yo, this girl has seen it all and has already had a great start to pet life. Sammy made friends with a Great Dane and Jack Russell before coming into us and she has shown she very much loves the company of another canine. Sammy can be a little shy at first and sometimes takes a little while to warm up to you. Once she gets to know you though there is no looking back! She will be your little shadow and rubs up against your hand as she trots alongside you.
Just when you feel like things are about to fall apart this guy will come to the rescue and hold them together…….Stitch!!
This small boy is currently in foster care and is looking for a forever home. He can take time to warm up when he first meets you but he still loves his humans enough to want them around more often than not so if you work casual or part-time hours you’re the right fit for Stitch. He enjoys having a yard to explore in but will need a home that will allow him inside time amongst his family also. Stitch likes the quieter side of life so will thrive best in a quiet household in a quieter area away from too much city noise. Stitch can be rehomed with another med/large canine companion that has good manners & is calm and also has experience with older kids.
“I am Loki of Asgard, and I am burdened with glorious purpose!” – If having no hair is a purpose, then yes I am burdened with that *awkward smile*
While his infamous counterpart from Asgard may be referred to as the “trickster” or “The God of mischief”, our Loki is known only for his friendly nature and excitement for all things good in the world.
Hello, I'm Red. Can you guess why they call me that? :)
I’m 5 years old but that’s like 35 in dog years so one might say I’m pretty mature. Do mature dogs still play like toddlers?
