Low maintenance

Greyhounds require less exercise than people think, they also have very little odour and shed minimally. Head to our FAQ page for more greyhound myth busters!

Once you have been issued a Green Collar your greyhound will not need to wear a muzzle in public. We are the only rehoming group in WA able to issue a muzzle exemption in the form of
a Green Collar.

“From the moment we messaged GAP they were quick to respond and answer all my quirky questions and requests. Five months on and we couldn’t be happier. She is the perfect companion to our small elderly terrier too! We would highly recommend welcoming a greyhound into your home and hearts.”

Dianne Smith, adoptive owner of Zarni

“GAP have supported our family through two adoptions for our two beautiful greyhounds. The love and care they have for each dog is incredible. Every success can be attributed to their wonderful staff, volunteers, programs and foster carers.”

Kelly Cracknell, adoptive owner or Lorelli and Winston

“You have given us a beautiful grey in Bear! We love him to bits and he’s fitted in perfectly with us. He surprised us with how quickly he adapted to us and our routine. He was toilet trained in a couple of days and has been friendly and gentle with children, adults and the many animals he’s met in the two weeks we’ve had him.”

Jill, adoptive owner of Bear

GREYHOUNDS READY FOR ADOPTION

Charlie

Male, Three years old.

I’m a gentle, calm boy who adores company of people or dogs so would probably prefer someone home more often if I was to go as an only.

More about me

Zack

Male, Four years old.

I’m a very friendly boy who absolutely loves the chance to cuddle everyone I can (whenever I can!).

More about me

Chester

Male, Four years old.

I’m a sweet natured boy who can be a bit anxious in new situations. Because of this I think I’d be best suited to an experienced home or to go with another dog I can gain confidence from.

More about me

Smeagol

Male, Two years old.

I’m a very responsive hound and I’ve heard the GAP staff remark about how easily they think I’ll be to train as I already come to my name most of the time and I just lovveeee doing things for treats!

More about me

Dezzy

Male, Two years old.

I’ve heard the GAP staff comment they think I’m one of a kind, and since they mean it in a good way, I’m okay with that. I’m quite the active dog you see (especially for a greyhound) and seem to always be on the go.

More about me

Jaffa

Female, Under two years old

I’ve had a bit of a different upbringing to most greyhounds in the fact I haven’t really gone through the motions of being trained to race so am a bit of a ‘wild card’. I think with the right helping hand that I would be an awesome family member, I just need someone willing to give me a chance.

More about me

Mardy

Male, Five years old.

I’m a pretty laid back dog who isn’t fazed by too much and I think I’d fit well in most households. I’m confident enough to live as the only dog but would of course prefer if my hoomans were home more than not.

More about me

Pete

Male, Five years old.

I’m one of the smallest male greyhounds that has ever come through GAP and I am frequently called ‘adorable’ and ‘a pocket sized greyhound’ by the GAP staff. Being a bit older I’m a settled, calm boy and have impeccable lead manners.

More about me

Barrio

Female, Two years old.

I’m only a small girl and can be a bit shy in new situations. In saying that when I gain my confidence I’m very playful and outgoing so I wouldn’t mind being paired up with a like-minded dog.
