"Adorable Goofball" - Whilst he may have a bad boy name, Jax is a big softie and he’s incredibly eager to please. His foster family think he has a lot to offer his adoptive family, and will be a very loving adopted child. Jax gets excited precisely twice a day for walks, but otherwise is quite happy to sleep the day away while his foster family go about their business. He does love his humans, so would benefit from a house where someone is home around the clock.

Jax requires an experienced home with humans who understand the little nuances that come with owning a rescue hound. Jax does sometimes growl to indicate that someone is too close or he is feeling threatened. He is still learning the difference between hound and human food, and that kitchen benches are not a smorgasbord.

In his foster home, Jax has shown he is a clever dog with the ability to learn and respond to commands. He is learning ‘no’ and also ‘touch’ to gain attention, and has shown positive strides with learning how to behave appropriately with dogs on walks. Jax would benefit from a forever home where his human is able and willing to continue his lead training and confidence with other dogs that don’t look like him.

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.
