Gumtree Greys' rescue and rehome greyhounds across the east coast of Australia, primarily from Gumtree (online classifieds), regional pounds and trainers/owners.
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, they are prone to separation anxiety which can manifest in high level stress and subsequently destructive and/or noisy behaviour. Yes, they may "grow out" of it after a few weeks in their new home, without other dogs or people for company, but why even put the dog through that stress to ultimately live all day on its own 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.

Following your initial application, we conduct a home check. Our dogs are placed on a two week trial. The adoption fee is paid at time of placement and reimbursed if the trial is unsuccessful.
After the trial period is deemed successful, the adoption process is finalised.
