Hullo, I'm Chip! I'm a petite, leggy brindle boy with expressive fruit bat ears. I have no eye-snoot coordination, and the smallest snoot in the history of snoots. But I have got a long list of nicknames including Hot Chip, Chippy, Chipotle, Chipolata. All of these sound delicious.
I enjoy curling up on the couch with you and a houndie pal, and spending time outside and in the garden, my zoomies are next-level hilarious. I'm all legs will make you laugh with my antics.
My foster folk say that I'm "such a sweetheart and will steal someone's heart with my funny prance!" And "the perfect combo of playful and super smoochy".
Go on, throw that toy! Every toy is my favourite toy, and I'll place it in my bed with my other collection. My treasure might accidentally include a sock or two, but don't worry I'll keep them safe!
I am currently in foster care with two greyhounds, and will need a home with a resident houndie. I'm not fussed on gender, just so long as they're happy to bounce around the yard with me too!
As part of teaching me how to be a good boy, I would enjoy a daily walk, and you will need to continue my lead-training and socialisation. This good boy is ready to bounce on into your home and heart.

STEP 1 – ENQUIRE & EOI FORM:
Fill out the contact form or email us at [email protected] to express interest in the hound that you are looking at. We'll send you an EOI form, this must be returned before proceeding.
If the greyhound you have applied for is unavailable or unsuitable, we can match you with a more suitable greyhound. We may have a hound in foster care who might be well suited to your family.
STEP 2 – LET'S CHAT:
We'll phone you to discuss suitability, clarify any points of your application and chat process and next steps.
STEP 3 – HOUSE CHECK & MEET + GREET:
We'll come to you! The meet + greet is conducted at the same time that a house check is carried out. The meet + greet is the day that your newly adopted greyhound will be able to stay on with you.
Our adoption fee is $320.00 and must be paid on on the day of the meet + greet, and prior to starting your 2 week trial.
We have a 2 week trial, where support from our team is freely available. If you have any issues, we urge you to contact us to try and work through them, as all rescue greyhounds have some period of adjustment.
If, after the 2 week trial, you feel that you need to return the greyhound, we will refund your adoption fee (less a $50 administration fee), upon return of the dog and all paperwork and other items that the dog was adopted with.
All of our hounds are adopted out with the following:
> Collar, lead & coat
> Certificate of sterilisation & vaccination
> A 2.5 kg bag of Lifewise dog food
> Flea & worm treated
> Care information for your newly adopted greyhound
> Access to our private Facebook page for foster carers, volunteers and adopters of our hounds. A community with invaluable advice and support.
