"Ultimate Velcro dog" - Billy is a beautiful boy, and once he has bonded with you, his love is unconditional and knows no bounds! He is a big boy, black with a white chest, white feet and a paintbrush tail. Billy loves sticking his head in the fridge to check out what’s on offer, and gets particularly excited when his human gets home. He has perfected the art of simply resting his head on the bed and using his eyes to get what he wants.

Billy is the ultimate morning person, despite his restless sleep. He wakes up ready to go, and just loves to go for walks. But what he loves most is his human. Since meeting his primary carer, Billy pines when she leaves, and will hang around in her room until she comes home. His ideal home is one where he will not be left alone for long periods of time, or where he has a greyhound pal.

Billy is still learning that other dogs are okay. He may be standoffish with other breeds, and can get quite alarmed when dogs are excited, jumpy or loud.

No cat or small dog applications please.

Adoption process

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.
