Buck is just the happiest boy - his joy in everything is infectious, and he will brighten your every day. Buck loves everything and everyone.
He loves to be around his humans as much as possible, but is okay being home alone for a couple of hours. Buck loves cuddles, and is desperate to get on that couch to be right beside you. His foster carers describe him as a bit of a doofus, being a little clumsy and not quite aware of his own size. He has a notorious helicopter tail, so you need to prepare for an enthusiastic greeting.
Buck loves to prepare his bed each night, ruffling his blankets and doona until it is just right to nestle in. He will happily snooze the night in the kitchen where it is warm and cosy.
Buck is great on his walks. He likes a shorter morning walk and a feature walk in the afternoon. He can even jog with you to help use up that energy. In between walks, he is happy for a zoom or some play with toys in the yard.
On his walks, Buck is happy to meet medium and large dogs but still doesn’t understand those little jumpy fluffy things.
Buck is a very affectionate family man. He will need a home where he can get his exercise and stimulation. He will reward you with endless affection and cuddles.
No cat or small dog applications please.

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.
