Perrie

Perrie is an affectionate sweetheart - she gives the best cuddles, and loves to nestle right into your shoulder and neck to give you her famous kisses. Perrie loves her walks and zoomies around the back yard. She has sudden bursts of joyful energy which put a smile on your face just watching. She loves having a back yard to run around in, and toys to throw in the air.

Perrie loves her walks, enjoying two 30 minute jaunts around the neighbourhood. If she has her zoomies and walks, Perrie is happy to nap for the rest of the day. She is your typical greyhound in that respect.

Food! Food is Perrie’s passion - she loves her dinner and any treats she may be offered. You will need to keep an eye on the kitchen bench and also the bin which is a source of treasure for Perrie. She also likes to collect various household items like shoes to bring back to her collection on her bed. Nothing is chewed, just “borrowed”.
Perrie is learning how to be a polite hound in her foster home. She will now wait patiently for her dinner and will go to her bed when instructed. Perrie is toilet trained and uses a doggy door to pop out and do her business.

Our girl is happily sharing her home with another dog. They get along quite well, and other than the very occasional squabble like most siblings, they enjoy each other’s company. Perrie needs a home with another suitable canine companion or humans who are mostly at home.

This gorgeous girl will lighten up your life with her joy and affection.

No cat or small dog applications please. No children under ten. No full time workers unless working from home or 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.
