Lily is lively and curious. Not for her the sedate, sedentary life of a couch potato. While she can do the long greyhound snooze, the minute something is happening she wants to know what it is, how can she be involved, and is it fun?
So Lily would prefer a busy, active family, one that will do some training and other interesting things with her, and love her.
She does enjoy a good snuggle and will happily rest her head on your lap for some well-earned affection, but she is also an independent girl, and thinks life is a bit of a hoot. She will roll around on her back, vocalising to tell you all how good life now is.
Lily is currently fostered with greyhounds, a whippet and a pug, and gets along well with all of them.
Lily is not cat tolerant.
Why not think about saving a greyhound?
GSN desperately need more Foster carers.
If you have a ‘cat-free home’, please look at Cody's appealing eyes, and consider fostering to save a greyhound’s life.
When you join the GSN Fostering team, we will support you with a mentor and our closed Foster facebook page.
Worried you won't be able to part with the dog?
You will get to meet the loving family who want to adopt your greyhound, and you can choose to stay in touch with them - which makes the parting so much easier.

The muzzle laws in Victoria changed on 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 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
