"Hilarious and Adoring" - Darcy’s foster parents say that since he arrived, he has had them in stitches every day. He is a quirky pup who loves to chat, and will bring you a toy when he wants to play. Darcy will even throw toys around for himself! He loves checking himself out in the mirror, and will make a bed out of anything, even his humans' laundry pile.
Darcy is a big fan of walks, and often enjoys going for a run in his sleep, upside down and tongue out. He goes for two walks a day, and is incredibly playful. Darcy loves going for car rides and travels very well in the back seat.
Darcy’s separation anxiety has improved since joining his foster home. However, he will need a home where his humans are willing to work on this. He is still learning to walk beside his human without zig-zagging, and when he is not getting the attention he wants, he may cheekily find something to chew on that he shouldn’t. Darcy responds well to ‘no’ in this situation.
Darcy seems to be a bit of an all-rounder – he loves meeting new people and other dogs. Darcy would be happy as an only dog, soaking up all the affection of his forever human/s, but his gentle nature with dogs when out on his walks is a good indicator he’d be happy with a canine sibling.
No cat or small dog applications please.
All our dogs are desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped.
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.
