"Looking for love" - If you like riding in cars, I’m your man! I love it sooo much. I’m Milo and as well as cars, I love people and playing with other dogs and squeaky toys (can’t be bothered chasing the squeaky toys though). I’m a very sociable black two-year-old boy with a big smile at one end and a very waggy tail at the other.
I’ve been around other greyhounds as well as other kinds of dogs and I get along with them very well, unless they get in my face and then I have to give myself a little extra space. I know some really cool things to do, like “wait” before crossing the road and “leave it” when I pick up a shoe that was left lying around.
For a greyhound, I’m pretty good at guarding my perimeter, but am quickly learning not to bark at everybody who walks by or at other dogs who are guarding their perimeters when I walk by. Although I enjoy my own company, I would prefer to have a brother or sister to live with. I’m a very sweet, lovable and happy boy.

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.
