Susan - All sunshine inside
Hi - I'm Susan, but when you get to know me, you might want to call me Susie. Why? Because I am very playful four-year old and I might be black on the outside but I'm all sunshine inside.
I love to play with my greyhound foster family but I can also create my own fun out in the yard by throwing my toy in the air and catching it.
I am a good girl, but once in a great while, I might steal somebody else's treat if they leave it alone too long, but I would never steal their dinner. I sometimes sneak up onto the couch for a nap because I can pick up your scent there, plus it's really comfy. I might not come to you for affection, but if you come to me, I'll reward you by reminding you that you should pat me until your arm drops off. I love the beach, and would go swimming every day if I could but I'm still learning about getting into the car.
I love kids but not sure yet about small dogs or cats - social distancing, you know - but other dogs running on the beach fascinate me. I am a polite and quiet girl with a big heart and a strong spirit. Isn't that what everyone wants?
All our dogs are desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped.
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.
