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?

Hi I’m Kenny and I’m looking for a place that I can call home.
*I already have inhouse/pet experience*
Are you looking for a pretty, affectionate and playful girl to fill up your life with? Look no further because here I am!!
If you put every wish you could ever want for a greyhound in a bottle, shake it around, give it a swirl and come Rocket. Rocket is the most amazing pet ready hound looking for his forever home.
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. Rocking is great with children over the age of 8 enjoys regular walks down the beach or along the hood and is happy living on his own. He really is your ready-made pet just waiting for a place to throw his bed.
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.

** Spottie has experience in an apartment home **
Meet the one and only Spottie - speckled with spots, full of love and searching for a furever home.
Meet Mandy, a sweet and affectionate girl searching for a home she can call her own!
Mandy would prefer a home where her family are around more often than not. However, if she goes home with a canine pal, she would be suitable for full time workers. She could also suit a home with older children, provided they are respectful of her space.
*I am in foster care*
High in the tree tops of Londonderry lives a very special greyhound. With his long, curly tail and sleek coat Ringtail is a boy like no other! You might have to coax him out of his warm nest but he’ll come running and jumping for joy once he sees you!
Are you looking for a best friend? A companion to show you unconditional love? A friend to take on walks, throw toys for in the backyard and then have napping by your side? Well look no further than our handsome man Cleveland!
While he may be an older gentleman, Cleveland still has a zest for life like no other! When he first sees you of a morning Cleveland likes to do his tap dancing routine! He also puts on this special performance when he's waiting for you to clip his lead for a walk. Cleveland loves to go for walks! He can be strong on the lead at first but is happy to be guided by you in the direction you want to walk. Of an afternoon Cleveland and his GAP handler like to go down to the bushy track behind us and watch the birds and trees. Cleveland would make the perfect companion for someone wanting an only dog. He doesn't like to share the attention and is much happier being the only child. Cleveland would prefer a home without children but instead a couple or even a single person. He can settle on his own for a few hours at a time but would prefer not to be left alone all day. A backyard where he can explore, sunbake and play with toys is a must while you're not at home. Cleveland has a lot of love to give and cannot wait to find his forever home!
Come and meet our sweet and playful boy Gecko, he is looking for somewhere he can call his forever home and for someone that he can call his own.
Gecko is a sweet and affectionate boy who loves nothing more than to play with his toys and follow his favourite human around. His best suited home would be with someone who is home most of the time, so if you work/study from home or work part time/casual hours then he’s the hound for you. Gecko can be an active boy and will prefer to have a nice backyard so he can get his zoomies out and chase his toys around, but don’t worry after he has finished playing he will find the comfiest/sunniest spot to sleep the rest of the day away. He loves being in doors and is very well behaved, he even knows how to hold it over night and will let you know if he needs to go outside. Gecko knows how to play well with other hounds here at GAP, however he will prefer to have his toys and backyard all to himself, but he would love to go on social walks and adventures with other dogs his size. He has ears that will light up your life and a personality that will light up your heart.

Hi I’m Charlie, I’m sweet I’m gentle and I am on the hunt to find my forever home.
*I am currently in foster care*
Meet Smudge, our exceptionally sweet and pretty blue and white boy from western Sydney.
*Julie is in foster care in Sydney and is available for adoption* Update from foster:
"She is really suitable for full time workers. I set her up with her bed and her favourite toys and she's good to go for the day. I will often leave her a pig's ear and sometimes hide another one in the garden for her to discover later. She is EXTRAORDINARILY active. She enjoys longer walks - an hour, ideally, so during the week I think maybe she'd benefit from two walks a day (or someone who can come home to walk her).
Sweeter then coconuts and as precious as palms, our handsome boy Coconut is hunting for a home!
Coconut is a calm natured and affectionate hound who loves nothing more than a scratch behind his ears and some play time with his toys. His best suited home will be with someone who is home most of the time, so if you work/study from home or are a casual/part time worker then he is the boy for you. Sometimes it can take a while for him to warm up to new people but I promise once he gets to know you he will become your very best friend and personal shadow. He plays well with the other hounds here at GAP so if you have a medium-large tolerant friend for him to play with he would love to meet them. Coconut can be a playful hound so having a backyard for him to play with his toys in and zoom around in will make him feel much more at home, but don’t worry, once he gets his energy out he will calm right down and be that best of both worlds kind of dog. Like a typical boy, he loves his food and will do almost anything for a sweet treat, this will come in very handy if you want to teach him any new tricks or need to build up leaving him alone while you are out of the house.
Hi I’m Vinnie, I’m a sweet natured and affectionate hound looking for my forever family.
I’m a playful boy who loves nothing more than to play with my toys and have a zoom around my soon to be new backyard, I can be quite active at times so having this backyard is a must for me. However, as like most greyhounds, once I get my zoomies out I will happily find that sweet spot in the sun and sleep the rest of the day away. My best suited home will be with someone that is home most of the time, so if you work/study from home or work part time/casual hours then I’m the hound for you. Here at Gap I love pairing and paying with the other dogs, so if you have a medium-large canine friend for me to play with then I would love to meet them. I haven’t quite gotten used to my size yet so a home with older children will be best for me, but don’t worry I do know how to walk perfectly on lead when we go for our walks together.
*Edamame has just gone into foster care!*
Have you bean looking for a gorgeous little greyhound that has soy much love to give? We can guarantee that you won’t find a more affectionate or gentle greyhound than this sweet little lady Edamame.
Meet your new best buddy - Buddy! This stunning and sleek 4 year old boy is a perfect gentleman. He's calm and relaxed and looking for a quiet place to call home.
Buddy will best suit a home in a rural or quiet suburban area, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. He very much enjoys his yard time out in the sun, so a home with a decent backyard is a must.
Speedy is looking for a fast-track to his forever home!
This handsome fawn boy is as cheeky and playful as his smile suggests. He would love a family with a backyard for him to play in and a little walk each day (he is well mannered on the lead).
I am currently in foster care*
Hi I’m Jill - I’m a sweet, small and delicate little girl looking for my forever home.
Meet Kosta - the playful, affectionate and oh so sweet hound looking for his furever home.
Kosta is an affectionate boy who wants nothing more than to find somewhere he can call his own. His best suited home will be with someone who is home most of the time as he just loves being with is humans, so if you work/study from home then he is the boy for you. He is a good pairer here at GAP, so if you have a medium-large tolerant canine friend for him to play with then he would love to meet them, this will even help him settle for much longer when you are away.
Cheech is one chill dude looking for a couch to call home.
He has been described as the more laid-back version of his brother Speedy (also up for adoption) and is likely to fit into most families without fuss!
This lady Grey looks and acts wise beyond her years. Don't let the grey hairs fool you - Blair is only 4yo and has plenty of love to give.
Blair has spent time inside and is a well mannered lady. She walks well on the lead and currently lives with a small dog sibling so may be open to living with another dog of any size pending meet and great. As she is still young Blair would like a home with a backyard to play in (and a comfy spot in the lounge room to nap of course). Blair is happiest when she is by your side, so would prefer a home where someone is home more often than not.
Nixon, like her sister Blair, is a beautiful Grey lady looking for her couch throne.
Nixon has been described as the more outgoing of the two girls and at only 4yo, she would love a family with some time to play or a backyard space.
Roxi is a sweet and calm natured girl waiting to find her forever family.
She is a very affectionate girl hoping to find a family who is willing to take things at her pace and help her to be the best pet she can for you. Roxi can be a bit shy at first but once she gets to know you she has an outgoing and playful personality that shines right through. She loves her zoomies, so having a backyard for her to play with her favourite toys in will definitely help her settle in much quicker, she also loves a good sun bake once she has gotten her zoomies out. Roxi will thrive with someone that is home more often than not, so if you are a casual or part time worker then she is the hound for you. She plays and gets on well with the other greys here at GAP so if you have a medium to large doggy friend for her to play with she would love to meet them, this will even help to build up her confidence as she is still getting used to the big wide.
Young but super and calm, gentle, meet one of a kind Wags! Wags has a delightfully gentle and quiet natured personality, despite his musical talents in the Wiggles he is very calm and quiet and would be a good fit for older couples/retirees due to his calm nature.
Unlike his Wiggly counterpart, he takes a little while to warm up to new people and new environments and doesn't like to be centre stage in front of a crowd! He would rather a quiet and chilled out adults only home with a good routine and a quiet neighbourhood to really chill out in.
