Zoe

Zoe is a bight and intelligent girl, and likes to be a part of everything going on. She is young and can get quite excitable, but relaxes like a pro when its quiet time. Zoe dotes on her humans and her big brother, another foster greyhound.

Zoe’s BIG thing in life is cuddles and affection. She can think of nothing better than cuddling up with you on the couch to watch a movie. Zoe also loves sneaking an opportunistic hug and tummy scratch when you sit trying to put your shoes on.
She can be a cheeky little minx, and will make the most of any opportunity to raid the bins or to finish your dinner if you get up to answer the phone.

On her walks, Zoe insists on greeting everyone with her beaming smile. Walks are all about enjoying her neighbourhood as much as exercise. She sustained a serious injury on the racetrack. This was not treated well and when she came into foster care, she had a couple of surgeries to try and rectify the problem. Zoe has lost two toes on her foot and will need careful management from her owner. Her exercise will be limited to one walk each day, and she may require ongoing pain management. Luckily, Zoe at only 25 kg is quite light as she will need to be part lifted into the car. She won’t manage many stairs, so a home with lots of carpet or rugs is best for when she does her zoomies.

Zoe is great with other dogs. She will need a home where her humans are home more often than not. She has a beaming smile that brightens your day, and very expressive ears, alert for any opportunity to engage with you for a cuddle - or steal your sandwich.

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.
