Gracie - demands affection
Gracie is a consummate cuddler - she demands affection and pats. Her passion is for her humans, wanting to be the centre of attention and be at your side - on your lap if allowed.
Gracie is a collector too, borrowing various items and taking them to her bed. Her foster family adore her, but do suggest she looks like Ed from The Lion King. Unkind!
Gracie is a bit bouncy for a home with small children, and does need lots of company, so she would be best in a home with another dog and folk at home a lot.
Gracie has not been tested with cats so no cat homes 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.
