"Creature of habit" - Blaze is a loving, calm girl and has an inquisitive nature. She has adapted well to life in foster care, is a quick, willing learner, and listens well to her foster parents. Since Blaze has become familiar with her routine, she has blossomed into a playful, polite young lady (and will let you know if its walk or food time!).
Blaze loves to go on long walks, and loves doing zoomies in the back yard, before collapsing in a heap for a snooze! She is always up for an adventure with her humans, but equally happy to lounge about.
Whilst she gets along well with others of her large breed, Blaze tends to like people over dogs. She gets along well with her large-breed foster sister, but it takes a lot for her to be comfortable with dogs she doesn’t know. She particularly doesn’t like small dogs. She would be fine as a solo dog.
Blaze loves shoes and cushions, and treats them a bit like her toys, playing with them but not chewing. She has learnt how to climb up stairs with the support of her foster sister, but she is still learning to go back down, often needing to be carried back down by her foster parents. She is excellent on the lead, and hasn’t complained so far when left alone for short periods of time.
Blaze has not been tested with young children or cats. She is tolerant of familiar dogs, but can be reactive with dogs she doesn’t know. No small dog or cat applications.
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.
