Brock

A distinguished salt and pepper gentleman, Brock is a long dog of leisure. He enjoys sunbaking, lounging, and snoozing. Beauty sleep is especially important.

Affectionate, charming, and friendly, you'll fall in love with Brock's frosty face, his formal-ready tuxedo chest and deliciously cute white socks! But he'll seal the deal with his cuddlebug ways! Brock is a lap dog and will flop down in your lap for an upside-down snuggle. He's also not shy when it comes to requesting his daily dose of pats.

Brock just loves to love, and would love to accompany you on all your adventures. Because he is such a little love sponge, he doesn't love being left alone, so a human who is home a lot and a canine companion would be ideal.

Brock is house-trained and has great leash manners. He is a massive foodie and is still learning that the kitchen bench isn’t self-serve. You’ll need to ensure that all food is put away or pushed back as a far as possible from this cheeky monkey!

Brock can get startled when woken from a deep sleep. (It is quite common for ex-racing greyhounds to show sleep startle tendencies, and is easily managed.) Brock will require continued socialisation and positive reinforcement in his new home.

No cat or small dog applications please.
No children under 12.
No full-time workers unless working from home post COVID19 unless 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.
