Andy doesn’t have a huge amount of energy - a couple of 30 minute walks each day and he’s done. He is otherwise busy snoozing for the rest of the day.
Andy is a quick learner and has mastered a few basic instructions. He is currently doing “watch me” training to help him cope with seeing all the strange dogs on his walks. A new adopter will be able to work with Gumtree Greys whilst Andy gets more comfortable with all the other dogs on his walks.
A shiny black boy with a curious white spot on his nose, Andy loves his humans and wants to please. He is very friendly and smoochy. He also adores his foster sister Macy, another greyhound, who happens to be his actual sister. We are very open to adopting these two siblings as a matched pair. This may suit a home with workers who are away from the home for longer days.
No cat or small dog applications please.
No children under six.
No full time workers unless working from home or there is another dog.
All our dogs are desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped.
We only consider applications who compete our online application.
When this is done we can make contact to discuss adopting a greyhound and potential suitable greys currently in foster care. https://www.gumtreegreys.com.au/adoption_enquiry/
Dogs are pack animals and Greyhounds, in particular, are very familiar with being surrounded by other dogs in their racing kennel environment. For this reason, when left alone without people or other dogs for company, they can be prone to separation anxiety which can manifest in destructive and/or noisy behaviour. Yes, they may "grow out" of it after a few weeks in their new home, but why put the dog through that stress to ultimately live all day alone, while everyone is at work? As a result we do not rehome dogs into households where they are left on their own for more than 4 hours per day, without either people or another dog for company.
Your home will require an initial “dog safe” Homecheck by Gumtree Greys. Payment of $350 for the placement is required at the time of the dog going into your home for the two week trial period. If you decide during the trial not to proceed with adopting the greyhound, your adoption fee will be reimbursed.
Outside of the trial period, the adoption fee will be relinquished to Gumtree Greys.
