A Perfect Rose!
This gal is energetic and loves walks. She is very friendly and loves to give kisses - just great with people, including children and greets everyone with a waggy tail.
She copes well in busy situations.
She would suit any home, provided her people are around a lot or she has a doggie companion.
For more details about Miss Rose and our other wonderful greyhounds that are looking for their adoptive 'forever' homes, please go to our Greyhounds for Adoption page.
GSN greyhounds live in foster homes up until the time you adopt them - as this provides you with a well socialised pet.
The muzzle laws in Victoria change from 1st January, 2019, for pet greyhounds that have been adopted and are registered with their local council.
GSN wishes to share with you some tips and traps:
🐾 Although muzzles can legally come off, the leash must stay on, even in designated ‘off-leash’ areas. This is required by law under the Domestic Animals Act, and that law is not changing.
🐾 GSN recommend avoiding taking your greyhound to off-leash areas, as it may become frustrated and upset with surrounding dogs running off-leash.
🐾 If your dog is overly excitable or reactive around other dogs, please continue to use the muzzle to protect other dogs, and your dog as well, as a dog can be declared ‘dangerous’ or ‘menacing’ if it attacks or even rushes another dog.
GSN was extremely fortunate to be one of the recipients of the Victorian Government 2017 Animal Welfare grants. The government’s grant has assisted us to buy a new vehicle for our mobile rescue and rehoming service. With coincidental ‘good’ luck we received the funds just after our existing car (which was limping along with ever-more frequent repairs) was written off in an accident. Luckily no one was hurt.
Without the generosity of the Victorian Government we would not have been able to continue our incredibly valuable work, which recently culminated in our 1,000th adoption.
Sarah Jane May kindly donated her beautiful ‘pointy friends’ artwork for the car, so now we can unveil our new look and car!
Pictured enjoying the spacious interior are GSN adoptees Mitch (rear seat), Debbie (front seat) and Sophie (rear cabin).
We are very grateful for the Victorian Government’s generosity and our good fortune.
GSN are always in need of more Foster-carers as requests to rescue greyhounds are much greater than the available foster-homes in our program. Our foster-carers are a vital link in the rescue chain, as GSN dogs are kept in foster-homes until adopted. Every greyhound taken into foster care is a dog saved, and every greyhound adopted makes room to save another. More details
Consider Sponsoring a Greyhound for $50
Not everyone can adopt or foster a greyhound, but in this way you can directly help one of our greyhounds find their new home. More details
GSN are currently having to turn away greyhounds despite knowing their certain fate. If you have a ‘cat-free home’, please consider fostering to save a greyhound’s life.
