Archie

Archie’s home is his castle. He loves his walks but he is a homebody who loves his games and play with his humans at home. He is still quite puppy-like, and will keep you entertained as he enthusiastically plays with his toys and bounces around the house. Whilst he rarely barks, he will let you know how good his nap is with many a contented sigh, or will whimper quietly if he wants your attention. He will demand belly rubs by peddling his paws in the air first thing in the morning.

Archie loves to borrow shoes. You may find him napping in his bed with a pair or two. He is very gentle with the shoes, and does not chew on them except for one pair of sandals he thinks is his toy. Archie also loves to check out the laundry basket for fresh dirty socks he can souvenir. Recently he found a pair of shoes on the side of the road which he absolutely had to take home.

Archie enjoys two 30 minute walks each day. He is happy to briefly say hello to dogs he meets but is much more interested in getting attention from humans. Archie prefers quiet areas to walk without too many confusing noises, and finds off-lead dog parks a bit stressful.

Our handsome young Archie gets lots of attention on his walks, with his soft, fluffy coat which matches his puppy-like personality. He greets strangers with a wagging tail and proceeds to nuzzle his snoot into their leg to get pats.

You particularly notice his big gorgeous walnut-brown eyes with huge pupils whenever there is food around. He has a small nose and a brown snoot, with white accents on his chest and paws. Archie will delight your home with his love and enthusiasm but will also need humans who will provide a bit more attention and provide stimulation for this young pup.

No cat or small dog applications please.
No children under ten.
No full time workers unless working from home or there is another dog.

Adoption process

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.
