Soft and gentle soul

Our boy Lauchie is a soft and gentle soul. He has been a pet for several years after racing. Unfortunately, due to a family break-up, he needs to find a new home.

Lauchie is sweet, and adores human company for cuddles and companionship on his couch. He’s not fussed about other dogs, so is happy as an only dog. He may be a bit long in the tooth, but still gets very bouncy when there is food or a walk involved.

Imagine the privilege of providing a home for such a sweet boy.

Lauchie has not been tested with cats, so no cat homes 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.
