Tiny is a striking, gorgeous big red-fawn boy who will draw the adoration of all your neighbours on his walks. Tiny loves his human family. At home he is a joy to be with. In his down time he will love and encourage cuddles, and enjoys sharing the couch with you, with tummy rubs most welcome - keep them coming.
Tiny will keep you entertained with his antics in the home. He has higher needs for stimulation, so would love to play fetch with you in the yard or the living room. He will enjoy enrichment toys too. This is in addition to two good walks each day. Tiny also does well with a consistent routine and house rules. He aims to please.
Tiny is unusually vocal for a grey. He will vocalise/chat with you on his walks. You can almost have a conversation with him.
Tiny has learnt to walk well on a loose lead. He is a little unsure of meeting new dogs on his walks, so will need an experienced dog owner to help him learn to be comfortable meeting new dogs.

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.
