Meet Raffa! - Race Name: Eddie Eagle

Raffa is 5.9 yrs. old and a big boy at approximately 40kg. Although he’s a big greyhound he is a big softie at heart who loves attention and cuddles. He just wants to be with you 24/7.

Raffa has been fostered for just over 8 weeks. There have been no younger kids at Raffa’s household during his stay, but he has had many interactions with visiting kids ranging from 6 months and up. He is a very inquisitive boy who sometimes forgets personal space but has shown to be gentle around kids.

Raffa loves meeting new people and making new friends. He is a very social butterfly and human orientated dog. He does get excited when new people come into the house but a gentle pat and he will calm down.

Raffa is good with other dogs and enjoys making new “doggy” friends but he can get excited when first meeting and forget, not all dogs want to be his friend. Raffa has shown no signs of aggression and loves having other dogs around, he would be best as an only dog or with a medium to a large calm dog.

Raffa's favourite thing to do is to go for his daily 30 min walks and sniff everything. He also loves to sleep all day. He loves going for car rides or doing anything that helps him spend time with humans such as going to cafes, parks, or Bunnings.

Raffa has not chewed anything inside as he prefers to nap or play with his soft toys but has chewed a bag of potting mix and some rubber cord outside when left for 7+ hours. Although, he has gotten better and hasn't chewed anything for a while. Raffa is toilet trained and will sit at the back door and whine if he needs the toilet.

Raffa is looking for a loving home where there is someone around to keep him company. He would best suit retirees or someone that works part-time hours. A working family who can have him in doggie day-care or something similar would also suit. Raffa would also love a yard big enough for his daily zoomies. A home that would let him on the couch sometimes and the bed in the morning or night-time for a cuddle. However, he loves having his dog bed and will sleep there all night once tucked in.

Raffa the big loving 40kg greyhound looking for someone to take him into their loving home. He is a gentle giant that just wants affection 24/7 and to be someone’s shadow. He is the friendliest greyhound who always has a smile on his face. He always aims to please especially when he gets lots of attention.

If you believe Raffa suits your lifestyle, please let us know.

Adoption process

All BTG greyhounds are Desexed, C5 Vaccinated, Wormed & Heart Worm treated prior to adoption. They have been fostered for a minimum of 8 weeks to allow maximum training and preparation for home life.

A post adoption trial period of 4 weeks is available to help families decide if the greyhound is the right one for them.

We also offer Foster to Adopt options for those who love the idea of teaching a greyhound in their home with the view to adopt it once it has "graduated" to Home Life status. This is a wonderful experience, to watch it blossom in your own home with your guidance and love. An ideal way to make sure this is the perfect dog for you.
