Hey, its Toby!
I have only been in foster care for a short time, but oh my it’s great! Most days I just lounge around on the patio, either sunbathing or sleeping for hours. I’m a gentle soul and I understand boundaries, but I can’t guarantee I won’t follow you into the toilet.
This whole pet life thing has come to me naturally, as if I have done this all my life. I don’t jump around like a silly boy; I’m patient and know when to wait for my food. I’m a smart cookie as I understand commands quite effortlessly.
After my sunbathing session, I don’t mind going for a nice stroll. I do have a secret talent - I’m able to walk on a lead perfectly. I’m not one of those dogs that pull and almost rip your arm off, so don’t worry, your arm will definitely stay intact.
Do you know those little dogs roaming around everywhere? Well to tell you the truth, I’m frightened of them, even though my lanky legs are three times bigger than theirs. I’ll come to grips with them eventually. Patience is the key!
I'm sure I could bring much love and fun to your household.
No children under 10.
No cat applications – small dogs may be considered.
No full time workers unless working from home or there is another dog.
All our dogs are desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped.
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.
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.
