Ola! I’m Churros and I’m a very special boy looking for a very special home. My eyesight isn’t the best you see – the dogtor says I have something called ‘bilateral retinal degeneration’… I don’t know what all those words mean, I just know that I’m nearly blind and I was born like this so it’s all I’ve known, really.
Now, on to the positives – my eyesight certainly doesn’t bother me, so it shouldn’t bother you (but I still need an extra special home*)! It just means that I’m an extra good listener and detective with my sleuthy snoot! Speaking of my sleuthy snoot, I love enrichment activities where I get to sniff out treats hidden in toys and boxes… I’d love it if my new home would take the time to engage my keen nose to figure out these puzzles.
So I can live my best life, I’m thinking maybe a smaller house or apartment is best for me and if I could be your only fur kid while I get my bearings and confidence up, that would work really well. I think I’ve left out the best part – I forgot to tell you that I’m also the sweetest, cuddliest, and happiest boy you’ll ever meet!! I would need a home where my family is home more often than not!
*It’s very important that I find a smaller home without stairs so I can learn to find my way around quickly without too many obstacles. My new family should be experienced dog owners, even better if you’ve had a greyhound before! And I’d do best without any distractions like living in a busy area, other pets or kids.

Once we have found your new greyhound we will send you an application form to complete and return. Then we will arrange a house check. It is important that the right hound goes to the right home! We can arrange for you to meet the dog/s and they can meet your family and/or other pets. Our hounds go “on trial” with your family for a minimum of 2 weeks. We have dogs that are small dog and cat friendly.
We expect greyhounds to be 'indoor dogs' and not left alone for long periods of time. Ideally they would have a doggy or human friend for company most of the time.
