Ollie loves an adventure walk. Suburban streets are fine, but he loves his walkabouts into local nature trails - he loves the long grass and bushes to explore. Ollie is an off-road enthusiast! He is not a great fan of busy city streets, but would love a yard for his zoomies.
At home, Ollie is quite the gentleman and can be okay for a few hours alone, providing he has access to a yard for…. his business. He can entertain himself with a toy to toss about.
Ollie’s foster family describe him as an angel - he is well behaved, loves all humans, and thrives on their attention. Ollie can get a bit cheeky if he is hungry or needs his walk. He will “borrow” household things until he gets your attention.
Ollie gets excited at meeting other dogs, so will need a bit of patience when meeting new dogs.
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.
