Tiger

"People are the best" - Tiger is love in the shape of a greyhound. He thinks people are the best part about living in this world. He gets attached very easily and is careful to not let those he loves stray too far from his sight, even standing guard outside the toilet or shower in case his loved one goes missing! Tiger has been known to cry when his foster carers leave, and will likely need someone who is home often to keep him company.

He’s extraordinarily energetic for a greyhound. With oodles of energy, Tiger will need plenty of walks and a nice back yard for him to play in. He would do well with a canine brother or sister to play with and help burn off his puppy-like energy and enthusiasm. A larger dog would be best.

Tiger walks beautifully on a lead, and has conquered the stairs. He’s a bit of a klutz though, and tends to knock himself walking into cupboards, tables, chairs and doors. Tiger, like many rescues also thinks that all food is for him, so his owners will have to have hawk eyes when Tiger is near the dinner table while he settles in.

He’s quite small for a boy and has a beautiful stripey, brindle coat – hence his name. Tiger’s handsome looks receive many compliments on his daily walks. He has lovely manners and has transitioned to life as a pet seamlessly. Tiger will make his future family very happy - he’s the perfect pooch.

Adoption process

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.
