Pluto - the perfect gentleman

Women beware - Pluto has the oddest habit - he’s partial to picking up stray bras, slinking off to his bed and sleeping with them. He’s also been known to wander off with a shoe or two.

That aside, Pluto is a perfect gentleman. He’s impeccably behaved on the lead, and has quickly learnt not to jump up on benches. Pluto is a big, black, bundle of energy, affectionate, quick to learn new commands and concepts, and brings a smile to all he meets.

Although Pluto is fine around small dogs, he is not cat friendly - but he’s friendly around every other creature he meets, particularly those of the human variety. Pluto is a gem - a big softy. He has thrived as a foster dog and is sure to brighten up your life.

Pluto has not been tested with cats.

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.
