Macy, our gorgeous chocolate brindle loves her two daily 30 minute walks but could stretch it out if more is on offer.
At home, in between her walks, Macy is happy to assume the responsibilities of a lapdog. She may break out into indoor zoomies in the morning when you get up, and display her trademark bunny jumps at moments of excitement.
Macy is learning basic instructions from her foster mums, including “wait” and “okay" on her walks, and doing some “watch me” training to be more comfortable encountering other dogs on her walks.
At home Macy is a champion at most challenges like up and down stairs. Her foster carers describe her as playful, curious, confident and affectionate. Macy loves to show her love with nose kisses.
Macy is lucky to be fostered with her foster brother Andy who is also her actual brother. They were rescued together with two other siblings, also in foster care in Melbourne. We would be very open to adopting them as a pair. This may suit a home with folk away from the home more often. They will be able to provide company for each other.
No cat or small dog applications please.
No children under six.
No full time workers unless working from home or there is another dog.
All our dogs are desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped.
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.
