Duncan

"Looking for love" - Duncan is like a gangly teenager who is still growing into his body. We think he missed the memo about greyhounds being graceful as he is awkward and clumsy as anything. You’ll laugh a lot when Duncan is around. He regularly bangs his head on things, prefers to lie down by dramatically collapsing in a great heap on the floor, and shakes his body so hard that all four legs come off the floor!

Duncan’s sleek and handsome appearance contrasts his clumsy nature. With jet-black fur and a soft white chest, Duncan looks permanently dressed to the nines in a James Bond-style tuxedo. He's nowhere near as cool as 007 though. He’s smoochy, cuddly, and has no issues embarrassing himself on a daily basis.

Duncan is also much lazier than the famous spy. His perfect day involves a couple of small walks, followed by sleep, sleep, sleep, food… and more sleep! He fits the brief of ‘lazy greyhound’ perfectly. Duncan is like a big cat, sometimes he can’t even be bothered to lift his head off the ground to see when someone’s arrived at the front door!

Not much bothers Duncan, but he is very wary around noisy children. They frighten him, and he will often walk the other way when he sees a group of them together. He will likely grow out of this but he would be better living in an adult household. He also has a bit of bed guarding, so some ongoing training will be required to help him learn to share his bed space

No children under 12.

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.
