I’m Rocky and, just like raccoons, I love my food - I just don’t wash it before I eat it. I have the cutest little overbite, and my tongue is a bit funny at the tip, but nothing gets in the way of my enjoyment of food and treats. Because I love treats so much, I’m easily motivated by them and really enjoy training and learning new things. It’s all play for me which is why I’m so good at it.
I’m also an extremely happy boy, and love nothing more than making my people happy, being a big old lovebug. I’ve got the waggiest tail, and I even wagged it so hard, a bit at the end came off, but I think it only makes me more interesting. When I’m super happy, I do a full body wag which looks like I’m dancing.
I’m only two years old and still a bit of a goofball, so I can get excited about things I like, like going in the car or on walks or playing games, but I know that when I’m inside, it’s time to chill out and go to my bed if I’m asked to. I might be a bit clumsy from time to time, so it’d be good if I wasn’t around small children or animals. I am a little quirky…for instance, I think ice cubes are terrific and if you’re getting some out of the freezer, I’ll wait to get one. Also, when I get excited, I like to have a toy or something in my mouth, sometimes even when I go out for my morning wee.
The best thing you’ll find is that my love for life, my happy heart and my smoochy nature are totally infectious.
All our dogs are desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped.
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.
