|Interstate adoption (ACT, NSW)|
Big beautiful Laine is a 3 year old retired racer.
Laine is looking for a home where he can continue to learn good doggy manners. Ideally he would like a home with another greyhound, preferably a female.
Laine loves going for walks, however he needs help with his leash manners and interactions with other dogs - after track and kennel life, Laine is understandably very excited about everyone and everything he sees
With time and patience Laine has the makings of an amazing family pet!
Laine is not suitable for a home with small dogs or cats.
Laine is very friendly and gentle with children.
Laine is currently in foster care with a little greyhound foster sister teaching him the ropes. He is housetrained.
If you would like to inquire about this lovable handsome lad, please get in touch with the Greyhound Connections team: firstname.lastname@example.org or submit an adoption application via our website: www.greyhoundconnections.com.au
STEP 1 - The Conversation
Fill out the adoption enquiry form on our website and tell us about the type of greyhound you think will suit you and your family, or if you've already found a greyhound that has caught your eye. We aim to get the match right for both your sake and that of the greyhound, so please include as much detail as possible in your enquiry. Just like people, every greyhound is unique. Following receipt of your enquiry form, a volunteer from Greyhound Connections will contact you to chat about the greyhounds we have for adoption that may be suitable, or the greyhound that has caught your eye.
STEP 2 - The Meet 'n' Greet
Once we have found a greyhound that might be a good match we will contact you to arrange an obligation-free meet 'n' greet. This might be at your house or at a place where the greyhound is currently living, or in a public place such as a park or cafe. You will get a chance to meet the dog in person and ask any further questions you may have. If you are feeling confident about the greyhound, we will talk about arranging a trial.
STEP 3 - The Trial
To ensure the fit is right for both your family and the greyhound, we recommend a three week trial. This will help you to see if you and the greyhound settle in together, and become accustomed to each other's behaviours. We will provide you with our Adoption Handbook that provides you with lots of vital greyhound-related information and all of your greyhound's personal details. You will be encouraged to contact us and the breeder, trainer or owner if you have any questions or concerns through the trial period. We will be here to support you and the greyhound all the way, and love to hear how the greyhound is settling in.
STEP 4 - The Adoption
Following a successful trial, we will work with you to finalise the adoption of your new family member. This includes signing our adoption form, registering the greyhound under your name with your local animal services authority and providing proof of this, and your payment of the adoption fee.
