Calling all Wentworth fans! My name’s Jenko, after Wentworth star Kate Jenkinson. Yes, I’m a boy named after a girl, but I’m totally ok with that. In fact, being a greyhound, I’m pretty much ok with anything, as long as I have someone to love me.
Being a rescued greyhound is a bit like getting out of jail. We all have our scars (inside or outside), and a few rough corners, but show us some kindness and you’ll find out that we know how to make the most of second chances. The Wentworth girls can keep laughing when times are tough, and that’s exactly what we greyhounds do – no matter what our past, we’re all capable of being completely hilarious! Just watch me zoom around like a lunatic or roll upside-down and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
Ex-prisoners can take time to get used to new things, so take it easy with me and let me adjust slowly. I’m already learning the rules of “life on the outside”, but please be patient if I don’t get it right first time, or if I get spooked by strange places or sounds. I’m 100% loyal to my friends, but watch me around cats (sounds like rats, which we prisoners don’t like), and if you’re a youngster, give me space when I need it.
I’ve heard that there’s someone special out there who’ll look past my prison tattoos, and see me as the great big softie that I really am. I’ll repay that person with the kind of devotion that only a freed heart can offer.

All our dogs are desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped.
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.

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.
