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!

Green Collar

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

Scary

Female, Three years old.

I heard the GAP staff were shocked to hear I wasn’t even three, they think I have the chilled out, cruisy personality of a much older hound. I do love doing my zoomies and am getting pretty good at fetch but I just like to follow people around and ask for cuddles, I guess I just don’t let much bother me.

Pretzel

Female, Three years old.

I’m a bit of a cutie and have heard the GAP staff describing me as an ‘all over sweetheart’ which I think sounds spot on! I absolutely love cuddles and will just follow people around looking for a hug.

Whitney

Female, One year old.

Because of my initially shy personality I would prefer a home where someone was home more often or where there was another dog to keep me company.

Sooty

Female, Four years old.

Can you guess how I got my name? That’s right, it’s because of my beautiful soft soot coloured coat! I also have the cutest ears where one tends to pop up while the other flops forward – apparently it makes me ‘adorable’.

I’m just as huggable as my name suggests and have developed the nickname ‘teddy bear’ here in kennels.

I’m a very sweet and friendly girl but can be a bit shy initially so would need my new home to be happy to take things slowly.

At almost five years old I have certainly passed the ‘puppy stage’ and have reached a calmer, more chilled out faze of my life.

More about me

Comma

Male, Four years old.
