Mini is a big snoozer - she loves to sleep the day away, only interrupted by her walks. Given a bit of space, she will run around and dance, but generally has low energy levels. Mini loves her humans, so will be a very engaged member of your family. She loves to nuzzle into your lap, burying her face so your free hands can concentrate on the required neck and bum scritches that she adores.
Mini will charm you and everyone she meets with her white whiskers, kind eyes and big smile. She has little radar ears that scan the neighbourhood for new people to meet.
Mini is a confident and easy-going greyhound who will be happy in a home as the only dog or with a suitable medium or large dog companion. She does stress a little being home alone, so we are looking for folk who are home more often than not, or there is another doggy companion.
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.
