Zazoo - a little collector

Zazoo is a very inquisitive and confident boy, always up for an adventure. He’s quite active but that’s just excitement. If not much is happening that day, we can find him in his bed or outside chasing flies and eating grass. He’s also playful and really affectionate — his weaknesses are neck and ears rubs!

This cheeky boy is actually a little collector. Zazoo loves assembling different things such as toys, blankets, clothes and any random object that catches his eye. Every day he adds new items to his collection . He gathers everything in a pile in his nest and sleeps next to it.

Zazoo is used to pet life now, has never had an accident inside and can be left alone without destruction or anxiety. Zazoo is good on walks, not worried about the traffic and not pulling on the lead. He just wants to meet every dog we meet and is very friendly with humans.

Zazoo has not been tested with cats so no cat homes please.

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.
