Kamala

Kamala is a gorgeous black beauty - curious, clever and ready for cuddles. Kamala’s tail has a life of its own – it does happy helicopter spins and even wags whilst Kamala is getting her beauty sleep! You’ll often find it wagging enthusiastically for play time, dinner or walkies.

Kamala is best suited to a quiet suburban or rural household, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Whilst Kamala is very people-oriented, she’s not a fan of city life or street noise. She’d much prefer a back yard, a place to sunbake and do zoomies! She walks well on a leash, but can get overwhelmed by external noises, so Kamala will need a confident handler who can continue to be her cheerleader when out walking.

The perfect house guest, Kalama is responsive to being redirected and toilet trained. During her time as a Gumtree Greys foster, she’s also learnt the command ‘stay’ and has mastered the internal house stairs. She’s still got some work to do on building confidence walking down external stairs. Kamala adores car rides and travels well.

Kamala is a classic shadow hound and will often follow you from room to room to supervise what you’re doing. She’s extremely curious and likes to be part of your day-to-day activities. We suspect she may be a water baby in disguise, as she’ll often join her foster folk in the bathroom and lie down in the shower! She is looking for someone who is home more often than not.

Kamala is a little bowerbird, and you’ll often find her with a collection of assorted household items. Footwear, empty coffee mugs or the bath mat are fair game if left out for her to snatch. She’s a sweetheart who will make you laugh! She’s partial to a booty-rub, and once when stretching, she let out a loud fart and frightened herself!

Kamala is the perfect companion who will warm your heart with her funny antics.

Adoption process

We only consider applications who compete our online application.
When this is done we can make contact to discuss adopting a greyhound and potential suitable greys currently in foster care.https://www.gumtreegreys.com.au/adoption_enquiry/

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.
