Candy is the name - and yes, I am rather stunning. I’ve been told I look like a royal greyhound from paintings discovered on ancient Egyptian walls. That’s definitely something amazing if you ask me. So, I am incredibly special and unique.
One of my favorite things to do is to steal everything in sight - it is quite cute, and I’ve heard that humans call it "Kleptomania". I am also quirky, fun, and loveable. One quirky trait I possess is to wrap myself up in blankets until I’m trapped, and I lay there as long I can before a human realizes. It's quite fun - I usually only see humans do it in front of the tv.
I would be a very good companion to you and will give you hours of entertainment.
No children under 10.
No cat applications – small dogs may be considered.
No full time workers unless working from home or there is another dog.
All our dogs are desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped.
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.
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.
