Charlie is a content, always happy and chilled-out dog, and is never over-excited - other than constantly wagging his tail. He is happy going anywhere at any time as long as he is with you!

He loves his walks but doesn’t cut a fast pace - there are just so many things of interest to check out and people to meet.

Charlie settled into his foster home with some ease. He did have some teething issues with toilet training but has mastered this now with some perseverance from his foster carers. He understands that he has his own bed to sleep on, but the couch and big bed are for humans. He will happily get onto the couch with permission and have a good cuddle up to his favourite person.

Provided Charlie has his walks and play time, he will snooze the day away. He loves tossing his toys into the air or chasing a ball in the yard. He is happy to meet dogs out an about but can be aloof with certain dogs and not pay them attention.

Charlie will need his humans to be home more often than not - he's a social boy and likes to be with his people. He is a comedian, loving and playful and will bring joy to the home. Charlie is divine, and is looking for his forever person that would love a loyal sidekick and companion.

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.

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.
