Pax

"Looking for love" - Pax is like the Brad Pitt of the greyhound world. With a striking fawn coat and deep chocolate eyes, he attracts looks of adoration wherever he goes. He tries to stay humble, but it’s hard when he can barely leave the house without being hounded by strangers saying how handsome he is! Sigh… it’s a tough life.

But Pax isn’t just a beauty, he’s got brains too. He’s super inquisitive and cheeky, always looking for a new challenge or adventure to have. He lives by the motto ‘joie de vivre’, seeking fun in every opportunity - whether it’s a trip to the beach or the back yard. He’s excitable and will need a family who can keep up with his energetic ways.

On the rare occasions he is chilling out, Pax will be found wherever humans are the closest. He LOVES company and thrives off attention, following his humans from room to room like a magnet. He’ll even wait patiently outside the bathroom door while they shower (he would wait inside the shower if he could!). Surprisingly, he handles being left alone for a couple of hours well, and would cope being the only dog in the house.

Pax would benefit from some more time spent with other dogs as he appears very curious to engage and play with them. He’s got so much love to give. he needs as many places to share it as possible!

Adoption process

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.
