Harrie - aged 2
Harrie (aka Harry Bo Bear) is a very friendly, affectionately and gentle boy. He is white with brindle patches, is so soft to pat, loves curling up with us watching tv, and chatters when he gets pats or looks you in the eyes. He loves going for walks, traveling in the car and chasing birds (particularly swallows). He has an amazing personality, and loves being where the action is.
He is incredibly smart, he mastered how to navigate stairs and hard wooden floors within a few days. He is fully toilet trained, taking himself down 2 flights of stairs in the middle of the night to go in the right place (outside). He copes well with all of the loud noises that come with living close to the city and walks on the lead well. He is a bit of a goof ball and he likes to lean into bushes and long grass as we walk (while our other dog stops for smells) and is great with other dogs.
Harrie will suit any active type home but is also happy to chill/snooze most of the day, and would be fine with a family with children.
Harrie will be available for adoption in mid-July.
Mac - aged 3
Sponsored by Amelia
Mac is another very handsome boy - also sporting a stunning shining black coat!
He came to GSN as a timid boy, but in foster care he has come out of his shell, and has learned to accept most loud noises and dogs barking behind fences etc..
He just loves travelling in the car - jumps in and lies right down. He is fine on leash and enjoys his daily walks.
He is good around the home and enjoys having human company. He can be playful and he is good with other greyhounds.
Ali - aged 3 Adoption pending

In Memory of Russell Mathieson
Ali is one of our extremely timid dogs so Julie named him after Muhammad Ali in the hope it might make him brave. Unfortunately GSN’s Ali floats like a bee and stings like a butterfly.
If you want a friendly, easy going, relaxed, affectionate dog who always wants to be by your side - then Ali is NOT the boy for you. Growing up, Ali was not given the opportunity to learn to trust so he needs to build up an entire new life where he can learn that people are okay and it’s safe to trust them. He will need lots of time, patience, kindness, understanding and space to build his confidence.
Ali is happy and playful (when he is not scared) and he has a wonderful wiggle-bottom that can develop into an entire body wiggle when he is very excited. He has soft brown eyes that could melt the hardest heart.
We require a special home for Ali, preferably quiet adults who are at home a lot (so he gets lots of attention and kindness) and with another stronger personality dog as leader, as he depends on other dogs for cues on how to behave. Young children would not be suitable as they move suddenly and quickly and may be noisy, things that Ali finds very distressing.
