My name is Roxy and I'm a petite hound, I am really the Audrey Hepburn of Houndies. Elegance, style and grace – my foster Ma and Pa say that I'm the "friendliest and most people-focused grey" they've ever known. It’s true! I just love being with my hoomans.
My bed is where I do a lot of my best work. Champion napper, that’s me. I am also quite adept at napping on the floor, on the couch, and on your bed – this girl needs her beauty sleep. But like every greyhound, when I get the opportunity to zoom I'll take it!
I would suit part-time or full-time workers, as long as there's a twice daily walk! Nothing quite like getting out to explore the ‘hood, right? Oh, and don’t giggle too hard when I start getting excited when you get out the leash – I pogo and bounce around a bit, but that’s just because I LOVE walkies!
When I'm not working on my beauty sleep, I like to sun-bake in the yard. I enjoy my own space and so would like to be the only princess in your castle. I'm ready for the rubs, the pats, the scritches, and in return you'll get a truck-load of love from me!
What's that saying? Oh, yes! “She has style, she has grace, she has moved into our place." That really has a nice ring to it don’t you think?

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 2 week trial.
We have a 2 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 2 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.
