"A sweet boy" - Roosey is the kind of dog who leaves a mark on everyone he meets. He’s impossibly gentle, and his big brown eyes will melt your heart in seconds.

Roosey is full of energy and loves his daily walks, so his new owner will definitely need a good pair of runners to keep up with his antics. He especially loves spending time at the park and meeting other dogs. Continuing to do this will help build his confidence and make him a well socialised dog.

This beautiful boy would benefit from living with another canine companion as he experiences some separation anxiety. He would prefer to live with another medium-large dog because he can find small dogs a bit overwhelming.

Around the house he is very well behaved and has an almost perfect report card. He is toilet trained, knows how to navigate stairs, loves spending time inside, and is comfortable being on his own for short periods of time. No destructive behaviour to be seen! Your shoes will stay fully intact.

Roosey sometimes struggles to sleep through the night, but with positive reinforcement and a consistent bedtime routine, we are confident he will grow out of this habit.

He is a sweet boy who will be sure to put a smile on your face with his silly antics, like sleeping on the floor when his bed is only mere metres away.

Roosey is not cat friendly. No small dog applications please.

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.
