Nina

A classic couch potato, this sweet brindle beauty is ready to move in with you!

Nina enjoys a solid routine of snoozing, a twice-a-day sniffari, and plenty of scritches.

At heart, Nina is a homebody looking for a quiet, cruisey household , away from the hustle and bustle of city-life. Nina isn’t a fan of busy cafes, and would rather just curl up on the couch with you.

Don’t judge this snoot by it's cover. On first impression, Nina can come across as shy, but love, patience, time and treats are the keys to winning this girl’s heart. Once Nina unpacks her suitcase and feels more at ease, she’ll dish out love and snugs tenfold. Nina is still building confidence in the world and sometimes finds that loud noises are startling – sorry no thrash metal for this petal. She will require continued socialisation and positive reassurance to navigate pet life.

Nina is also the holder of the most gorgeous velvet-soft ears that sit upon her head like ear-hats. She emits a deep, satisfying groan when they’re scritched. She is most content lounging upside down or snoot- first in her toy basket.

Nina will make you smile with her goofy antics, including tossing toys up in the air and her happy windmill tail!

Nina would love to have a confident male hound sidekick and sniffari-buddy ,and humans who are content for her to continue to be a couch cutie.

No cat or small dog applications please.
No children under six.
No full-time workers unless working from home post COVID19 unless there is another dog.

Adoption process

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.
