"A sweetheart" - Hi! I’m Honey, by name and by nature. I love everybody and am a playful girl, always excited to see you and have fun games with you or with my toys. I am very affectionate and a bit quirky too. Sometimes when I scratch myself, I think my foot wants to play with me so I’ll try to catch it with my teeth. I’m a bit cheeky and somewhat of a collector - I like to take my toys or things you leave lying around back to my nest.
I am a little bit excitable so I’d love to have other dogs of a similar size to play with, in addition to adults and older kids - I’d hate to accidentally knock anyone over. My personality might be a bit too much for a tiny dog, but I’d be willing to meet them to find out if they like playing as much as I do, although I expect they might not because I like to play, play, play!
I’ve learnt to come when called, sit, calm down if I get too excited, and walk easily on the leash. Did I mention that I’m absolutely gorgeous? I’m a light brown brindle with dusty silvery shininess over the top, and a white patch on my chest, as well as cute white tips on my feet and tail. I also have a slight but extremely appealing underbite.
One thing for sure, when you come home you’ll get the best greeting you ever had.
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.
