Zoe

"A collector" - Zoe is an angel disguised as a greyhound. She doesn’t have one bad bone in her (very long) body. She’s got a pure and genuine heart, and feels it is her mission to make those around her happy.

An angelic face matches Zoe’s angelic personality. One of her best features are her ears, which are like mini satellites, constantly swivelling around to get the best reception. They are as soft as velvet and incredibly floppy, flouncing all around the place as she trots happily around. Her gorgeous black and white coat makes it looks as if she has stepped her legs in white paint - and dipped her snout in too!

Zoe has adjusted to life in foster care exceptionally well, taking each new challenge in her stride calmly and confidently. She will make an excellent adventure companion as she is adaptable and curious in new environments. Zoe thinks car rides are excellent fun, as she always knows a great adventure is just around the corner. Of course unless it is a trip to the vet, in which case she is less than happy. When out exploring the world on her daily walks, she will wag her distinctive, stumpy tail (which is partially amputated) as fast as she can, causing her whole body to wobble with excitement.

No cats or small dog applications.
No children under six.
No full-time workers unless working from home after COVID19.

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.
