"Smart and enthusiastic" - My name is Bobby, but you can call me Mr. Everywhere because I am happy when I’m doing everything, no matter where it is! I like being out and about meeting new people (I walk super well); I like hanging out at home with the hoomans; I really like zooming around the backyard, and if you have a furry friend already, chances are I’ll like them! Most importantly, at the end of the day I REALLY like a snuggle or two. There’s not really anything I don’t like!
I’m a young and happy boy, which means I still have some learning to do. I am quickly learning to stay out of the kitchen, and how to greet house guests without getting too excited. I’m also a nester; which means I like to steal your stuff (mainly slippers) to take to my bed, but I never destroy it. A big stuffed toy or a cuddlepillar would be the most amazing gift of my life.
I don’t jump on the couch or the bed but if you let me, I’d love it! While you’re home, I’ll keep an eye on what you’re up to so that I never miss out.
When I was younger, I broke my wrist, so 4-6 stairs and 20 minute walks once or twice a day would be awesome for me, so I hope that works for you. Oh, I almost forgot to say - I love laying in the grass.
I’m not as timid or shy as many hounds, so if you’re looking for an outgoing guy who’s happy to go on adventures with you, I’m your man! Keep in mind, I still LOVE a good snooze too.
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.
