"A real smoocher" - Knox is a modern man - big and strong on the outside, melty and soft in the middle.

If we had to write Knox a report card, he’d pass with flying colours. Walking on a lead - no problem; meeting other dogs - totally chilled; learning new commands - easy-peasy!! This handsome boy is the real deal - easy-going, affectionate and loads of personality to boot. In fact, we can’t think of one reason you shouldn’t adopt Knox.

He is a real looker - a sizeable lad with a gorgeous roman nose. He’s sure to stand out at your local dog park. We hope you enjoy your daily walks, because Knox has plenty of energy and will need at least two decent sessions a day. He’s a sporty boy who loves to play with soccer balls and footballs, and has taken an interest in frisbees too! He’s even energetic in showing his affection, often running up to his human and brushing up against them to demand cuddles.

When he’s finally tuckered out, Knox becomes a real smoocher. His favourite spots to be tickled are his chest and legs - he’ll let out a funny sigh of comfort when you’ve hit the sweet spot. Knox will work well for someone living in the suburbs who is looking for an intelligent, boisterous and loveable companion.

No cat or small dog applications please.

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.
