Willow

Willow - loves her peoples

Willow has blossomed in foster care with another dog for company and guidance. However, people are by far her favourite thing. Willow approaches strangers to say hi, and is appreciative of their comments as she agrees she is a fine-looking specimen. Willow loves car trips and has in fact tried to jump into the cars of complete strangers.

Willow has learnt good manners, and learns routines quickly.

After sleeping, Willow’s other favourite pastime is tossing and catching her squeaky toys mid air.

Willow is not cat friendly.

Adoption process

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.
