Anna - Not a couch potato
When Anna first came to us, she was quite timid and used to cry a lot. After a few weeks in foster care, she came out of her shell, started eating well and putting on some weight. Anna’s coat is now super shiny, and her bald patches are filling out.
Anna took a while to warm to pet life, but has been responding well to corrective prompts given by her foster carer when caught in the act of mischief.
Anna is a very high energy young lady, and uses this energy to do some interior and exterior re-design with items such as blankets, dog beds, cushions and shoes - which may end up all over the yard.
A lot of Anna’s behaviours seem to stem from excitement, and her zest for life means she is excited quite often. She will bring lots of gorgeous disruption to your life. Anna is not your text-book couch potato greyhound.
Prior to her morning walk, she has been prone to jumping and nipping in order to assist the ‘getting ready’ process. She is progressing with training in this area.
Anna is an excitable gal, but calms down with 1:1 attention and a firm voice. She will benefit from a home where she is not left alone for long periods of time.
Anna has had no difficulty socialising and integrating with her fellow canine foster siblings. She knows her name but continues to work on recall as she is likely to become distracted by sights and smells around her.
Anna has not been cat tested, so no-cat homes only.
All our dogs are desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped.
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.
