Rusty. Melbourne

Rusty is an exceptionally handsome gentleman, with a gorgeous golden coat, and a tail with stripes like a tiger. Rusty is well-behaved and loving – but with just enough of a streak of mischief to keep you entertained! Perhaps that tail is a sign that there’s a little bit of the wild animal in this cheeky, affectionate boy.

Rusty loves being a pet, and already responds to his name, walks well on lead, and goes outside when he needs to. Cheeky Rusty is taking a little longer to learn that food left on the bench is not for greyhounds, and neither are human beds…or toilet brushes and shampoo bottles, which sometimes end up in odd places! We’re sure Rusty will learn boundaries once he settles in his forever home, but there will no doubt be plenty of laughter and mischief while he figures it out. Rusty likes living indoors, and stays calmly with his canine foster siblings when his humans are out. He’s not a fan of cats, small dogs, or young children (they’re confusing), so would prefer to live with older kids.

Rusty likes a walk and a play with his toys, but his favourite hobby is flopping down for a nap somewhere close to his humans, or rolling upside-down on the floor for a back rub. Rusty is a honey-coloured sweetie with just a dash of spice, who will bring plenty of smiles to his forever family.

Percy. Melbourne

Percy is ready to be the dog of your dreams! This handsome fellow lives to please his humans, so is quick to learn new things. He already obeys several commands, uses the dog door beautifully, and is great with children (seven or over) and smaller dogs (unless they’re off-lead, which is still overwhelming). He also has endearingly active ears, and inquisitive eyes to gaze at you adoringly.

Percy has medium energy levels, and likes two 20-minute walks a day, and a zoom in the yard. He loves human company, so would prefer to live with humans who are usually home. If his humans are out a lot, he’ll need another dog around to help him stay calm. Percy likes collecting souvenirs of his humans, so don’t be surprised if a shoe, toy, or blanket disappears for a while, then re-appears as a prized possession in Percy’s bed!

Like most greyhounds, Percy take the art of sleeping very seriously, and his meticulous bedtime routine is hilarious! First, he removes unwanted objects from the bed, then he digs it into shape, then turns around exactly three times – then sweet dreams! Tonight, Percy will be dreaming of finding a home where he can be a good dog for his humans forever. Will Percy’s dream come true?

Percy has not been tested with cats so not cat applications please.

Jake Melbourne

Some dogs are born to be outside and Jake certainly fits the bill. He’s bursting with energy and enthusiasm. He loves nothing more than taking off on multiple walks each day and being outside generally. Indeed, the mere hint of a walk sends him into a tailspin. He wags his tail so hard that he starts to flail about. It’s a truly extraordinary sight!
But he also cherishes his downtime. He loves a pat on the bum, devours his food and adores human company. He’s also quite content to rest and recharge on his own.
Jake is a gem – he’s well behaved, quick to learn, very partial to a cuddle and simply loves life.
Jake hasn't been tested with cats, so no cat applications please.

Dave Melbourne

Dave – short but sweet this one!
Dave couldnʼt be more chilled. Heʼs taken this foster-care caper in his stride
and nothing really fazes him. Heʼs an excellent sleeper, is great on the lead and
is not fussy when it comes to food.
He certainly has an inquisitive side – hence his nickname ‘Detective Daveʼ!
Given the opportunity, heʼll sniff everything you touch – just so he can get a
handle on proceedings. Heʼs also implemented a strict ‘pat taxʼ, which must be
adhered to every time you sit down!
All up, Dave is a delight – no fuss, no dramas, and the ideal companion hound.
Dave hasn't been tested with cats, so no cat applications please.

Harry Melbourne

Harry is a beautiful, good-natured boy with a striking dairy cow patterned coat
featuring pure white and black patches. He loves a snuggle, is addicted to his
toys and is placid around kids and other dogs.
He is still however finding his feet when it comes to the sights and sounds of
urban environments. Hence, heʼs rather anxious when it comes to vehicles, loud
voices, balls, bins, doors and bikes and finds walking in the city very scary. A
patient and loving owner should work wonders. After all, when it comes to
indoor noises, he has adapted with aplomb. Vacuums, dryers and blenders have
been no problem whatsoever. Nor have stairs and steps, which he has
navigated with ease.
In the right quiet environment and with the right amount of TLC, Harry will
shine.
Harry is not cat friendly so no cat homes please.

Woody. Melbourne

Black Brindle Woody is certainly a showstopper. Heʼs tall, has a very handsome
face, soft eyes and stunning markings.
But itʼs taken him a little time to find his confidence. He would benefit from
someone who is patient and willing to work with him on socialisation. Rest
assured, once he trusts you, heʼll do everything he can to please you.
In short, Woody is a massive softy and an A Grade-smoocher. He loves to lean
against your leg when out on walks. When he greets you in the morning he will
nuzzle his head into your hands. Heʼll also perform a cute little bow dance at
the mere mention of walk. Indeed, he certainly has some quirky habits. He loves
to rub his back against fences and tables and is fascinated by his reflection. He
will seek it out it everywhere - even in car doors!
Woody is a stunning boy and a beautiful soul. With a lot of patience and
understanding, you will be rewarded with the kindest, most sensitive, bighearted
dog imaginable.
Woody has not been tested with cats so no cat applications please.

No photo for Dora, Melbourne

Dora, Melbourne

Senior girl Dora’s personality certainly belies her years! She’s the most inquisitive girl. ‘Dora the Explorer’ would be an appropriate nickname. Her long nose is forever peering into cupboards and open gates during walks. And she loves to be in the thick of the action. Indeed, she’ll tag along anywhere with you - the beach, the footy, the cafe, the park, you name it!

Like any senior however, she’s totally chilled and is quite happy to squeeze herself into any Dora- sized space available on the couch. She’s impeccably well-mannered and has adjusted well to foster life, though timber floors still present the odd headache! Despite getting on well with other dogs, she’s probably best suited to being an only dog. Given her placid nature, she’d be right at home in an apartment.

The way Dora enthusiastically greets you with a wagging tail, especially at walk time, is something to behold. When she’s really excited, she breaks out into the cheesiest grin. It sums up her irresistible personality.
Dora has not been tested with cats so no cats please.

Jimmy Jay, Melbourne

Jimmy Jay is a textbook example of a hound who’s slotted seamlessly into life in foster care. There’s been no accidents, no separation anxiety and no major misadventures. He learns commands quickly, enjoys playing with other dogs and is generally a very well-behaved young man!
A couple of brisk walks and a few zoomies each day and he's happy as Larry. In typical greyhound style, he then spends the majority of his day snoozing, lounging and nuzzling. Indeed, he’s particularly partial to a scratch behind the ears.
Though he would be quite content without a constant canine companion, Jimmy simply adores human company. Whoever’s lucky enough to adopt him will have their own semi-permanent shadow! His big brown eyes will win you over and his cheeky personality will seal the deal.
No cat homes please as Jimmy Jay has not been tested with cats.

No photo for Toby. Melbourne

Toby. Melbourne

At home our Toby is the class clown. He loves to tease and flirt with his human family at home. Zipping around and tossing his toys in the air Toby has all the confidence in the world. Outside the home he does need a little more time to feel fully at ease. On walks, the company of another hound gives him much more confidence.
Toby is looking for a home with lots of company, hound or human. He will show his appreciation with a cuddle, company on the couch and a display of joy with his favourite toy.
Toby is not suitable for a home with cats or very small dogs.

Jimmy. Melbourne

Big boy Jimmy is very much a ‘people hound’. He’s incredibly affectionate, very partial to a pat and would probably walk off with random strangers if he wasn’t on a leash!
He’s also brimming with confidence and is a quick learner. Within a day, he had pretty much mastered the art of climbing stairs. Getting down was an entirely different matter however!
He’s also hyper-aware of his surroundings and frequently reacts to things on the TV or computer, as well as spotting himself in mirrors and windows. He thoroughly enjoyed watching Our Planeton Netflix and also loves interacting with statue dogs and trying to sniff their butts.

Jimmy’s a big and friendly boy who simply adores humans but is still getting used to small dogs. With his larger than life, personality, he’ll make the perfect pet.
No cat homes please as Jimmy has not been tested with cats.
