Oscar is a bundle of energy and enthusiasm - he is four, but has the energy of a puppy.
Oscar loves his walks and to play in the yard with his humans, and he has the greatest time playing with his toys.
Oscar has settled into life as a foster hound very well. He knows the routines and is learning some manners. He knows how to signal his humans if he needs to go outside to attend to business.
In the home, he stays by his humans while they go about their business. He will look to you and smile, just happy in your company.
Oscar’s foster carers are home a lot, so he hasn’t had much opportunity to be home alone. He is a dreamy affectionate boy - his foster carers liken him to a majestic kangaroo with double Dorito ears.
Oscar would be suitable in a home with another playful dog. He will need a yard to exercise in.
No cat or small dog applications please.

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.
