"Looking for love" - If you need a shoulder to cry on, or someone to talk about your day with, then Cozi is the greyhound for you. With ears as big as Yoda’s, and a soul as wise and kind, Cozi makes the perfect listener and therapist. He may not give much advice back, but his comforting presence will be enough to ease your worries and comfort your mind.

Despite having ears like a mysterious intergalactic creature, Cozi is an extremely handsome boy. With a velvety black coat and cute white chest, he looks like he’s permanently dressed for a black tie event. Cozi is regularly stopped on the street, receiving compliments from strangers on his good looks. He’s got a pretty fab personality to match too. Gentle, loving, and sometimes a little cheeky, Cozi brings joy wherever he goes. It doesn’t take much for him to be entertained – he is satisfied with two short walks a day and lots of affection from his humans. Cozi does have a habit of collecting things from around the house - keys, vegetables, measuring cups. If you can’t find it, it’s probably on Cozi’s bed.

Cozi is a true gentleman around the house - a very polite eater, a sound sleeper and good on a lead. He settles in quickly and feels at ease in most environments. He’s not so great at learning commands like ‘stay’ or ‘sit’, and has zero recall. Some persistence may help overcome his stubbornness here. Cozi has a slightly sensitive stomach, so care needs to be taken with his diet.

Cozi is a happy boy who loves to be around people. He will be happy as an only dog, receiving all the attention from his owners.

Adoption process

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.
