Pete – Sweet Couch Potato

I'm sweet Pete, and I'm a 6 year old gentle black beauty. My fur is generously sprinked with grey flecks and a frosty snoot. I am a love sponge, and my foster folk say that I have "the sweetest temperament" and have crowned me "king of roaching"! I do love to be upside down whilst having a good snooze! I'm a helper hound, so I'll follow you from task to task, to make sure you're okay and don't require assistance.

I love soft, squeaky toys and I'll play fetch with you too – I'll even bring the toy back and drop it at your feet. When I'm feeling silly, I'll point my butt in the air. Booty scritches will be required at this time. I'm a bit of a doofus and have zero spatial awareness.

Did someone say walkies? Oh, boy! I'm excited! I'll tap-dance with my feet and my tail will do helicopter spins.

I've been in foster care with a female greyhound named Bella, so I'll need a forever home with a greyhound companion. I enjoy playing tug-a-war and galloping around the yard, then flopping down exhausted after 5 minutes.

I am looking for a home that's willing to be patient with me. In new settings, I can get overwhelmed, so I'll need you to be understanding. I just love to be loved.

Looking for a couch to call my own!

Adoption process

STEP 1 – ENQUIRE & EOI FORM:

Fill out the contact form or email us at [email protected] to express interest in the hound that you are looking at. We'll send you an EOI form, this must be returned before proceeding.

If the greyhound you have applied for is unavailable or unsuitable, we can match you with a more suitable greyhound. We may have a hound in foster care who might be well suited to your family.

STEP 2 – LET'S CHAT:

We'll phone you to discuss suitability, clarify any points of your application and chat process and next steps.

STEP 3 – HOUSE CHECK & MEET + GREET:

We'll come to you! The meet + greet is conducted at the same time that a house check is carried out. The meet + greet is the day that your newly adopted greyhound will be able to stay on with you.

Our adoption fee is $320.00 and must be paid on on the day of the meet + greet, and prior to starting your 3 week trial, where support from our team is freely available. If you have any issues, we urge you to contact us to try and work through them, as all rescue greyhounds have some period of adjustment.

If after the 3 week trial, you feel that you need to return the greyhound, we will refund your adoption fee (less a $50 administration fee), upon return of the dog and all paperwork and other items that the dog was adopted with.

All of our hounds are adopted out with the following:

> Collar, lead & coat
> Certificate of sterilisation & vaccination
> A 2.5 kg bag of Lifewise dog food
> Flea & worm treated
> Care information for your newly adopted greyhound
> Access to our private Facebook page for foster carers, volunteers and adopters of our hounds. A community with invaluable advice and support.
