For Missy (9 years old) and Spot (7 years old), being with loved ones is the most important thing in life. They always enjoy being surrounded by company, but most of all they love their own humans, and each other! These two have formed a strong bond, and although Missy likes to boss Spot around, we can’t imagine them ever being separated. This adorable pair needs a home willing to double the love, and take both of them.
Missy is an elegant older girl, who sometimes shows some old-lady stiffness and grumpiness, but still loves her zooms with Spot, and her daily 25-minute strolls. She can be wilful and values her independence, but also has a huge heart and a fun-loving streak that comes out when she’s playing. Spot is more exuberant and loves everyone and everything, and will gravitate towards the noisiest person in the room (while Missy slinks off to a quiet corner). Both have learned excellent manners, except for walking on lead – they still manage to get themselves tangled! They’re gentle with hound-savvy children (seven or over), and have learnt to be relaxed around little dogs. No cat homes please as neither has been tested with cats.
It’s pure joy to watch Missy and Spot together, with their contrasting sizes and personalities, but their total agreement that pet life is to be enjoyed to the fullest! Anyone looking for a ready-made pair is sure to fall in love with this delightful duo.
(Note: Missy is in the blue bandanna and Spot in brown).

All our dogs are desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped.
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.
