Harris is a striking looking boy, with his handsome roman nose and plush coat. Being so handsome, he loves all the attention he gets on his walks and in the park. He makes a bee-line to approach strangers to get as many cuddles and scratches as he can. Life is fabulous when there are people and dogs to meet.
At home, Harris just wants to be near you and let you know he loves you.
He does need some attention to manage his energy levels. Harris needs his two walks, but also time for play, whether playing fetch or zooming around with his toys. He is not keen on being home alone, so will need some patience to manage this.
Like most greys, Harris loves his food, including a good munch on his favourite - a carrot.

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.
