The choreography of your day: first, your alarm goes off, and I stretch a graceful “tendu” and yawn. I’ll break up the elegance of my movements when you try to leave for work – that’s the dramatic bit in the middle of the dance – I’ll hurl myself into your way and block the door, pouting.
INTERMISSION. I wait like Sleeping Beauty until you come home and wake me from my slumber. There is a “pas de deux” (the dance of two: me and you, snuggling), then curtain fall.
Ballerinas are very fit, so I will need to go on two walks everyday – I like to call them the “pas marche”: morning and night. Just 20 minutes is fine, enough to stretch my elegant long legs. My paws are one of my most important assets, so I love lying on the floor with my assistant (er ... human) receiving foot-rubs.
I am the Principal Dancer in your company, so I’ll expect the best of care, and all my whims should be catered to. But it will be worth it when I peep lovingly at you with my big brown eyes, and your heart will dance in your chest.
Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, flea and worm treated.
All Greyhound's @ Greyhound Rescue Victoria are:

- microchipped (transfer inclusive of adoption fee)
- intestinal and heartworm treated
- rehomed with a leash, collar, plain coat during winter months, and a wire muzzle + our extensive adoption info booklet.
** Adoption Process **
Step 1 – To express your interest in adopting a greyhound, fill out our Expression of Interest form at www.greysrescuevic.org/contact
Step 2 – We will endeavour to reply to your application form and contact you with a suitable matched hound based on your household.
Please also be aware when requesting a certain greyhound, that it may already have found a home. We have many other dogs in our program looking for forever homes – the adoption form enables us to match a greyhound to you and your household.
If for some reason, you haven’t heard from us, please shoot us through an email: email@example.com
Step 3 – We will book you in for a meet & greet at our HQ in Carrum Downs. Pending the outcome of the meet & greet, this is the day you take your dog home.
Please note: we do not hold dogs in our care for adopters, if you are interested on the day of the meet & greet, you must be prepared to take your new family member home.
Step 4 – We request the adoption fee at the beginning of your trial. A trial runs for two (2) weeks. If you decide, at any time that the greyhound is not for you, or isn’t working within your household, the hound, and complete paperwork is to be returned to us and you will receive a refund of 80% of your adoption fee.
