Male, 03/04/2018

I'm the bounciest & bubbliest of all boys! I'm down for all the adventures and going's on once I have had a chance to settle and learn the ways of a pet greyhound. Since I am a bucket of fun, I would adore a friendly like minded and tolerant medium-large doggy friend to play with. If you don't have another dog, that's no problem-o since I along with my happy go-lucky personality boy, I am independent enough to keep myself entertained for full-time hours whilst you work if I'm given enrichment. Whilst I sport a loveable quirky and fun loving personality, this can sometimes be a little too over the top and therefore I would suit an older family (13+) who can match my fun & games type personality.

Male, 23/11/2018

I'm Stan the man and if you let me, I could be your man. I am the whole package with the sweetest disposition, however I may be prone to loving me people a little too much. Provided I am given the right training though, I could be more then content on my own with a full-time working household. Sometimes I can get carried away when I am playing with other dogs so would prefer any doggy friends to be medium to large in size & also tolerant, playful and independent. Toys are great fun but in my excitement I can forget my manners, so continuing my trade training would be necessary. All in all though, I am a great dog in a pretty package who just needs a little refining in the manners department! This means children over 13yrs for now.

Female, 14/11/2017

My name is a shortened version of the name "Orlaith" which means "Golden Princess", and I do have a golden personality and I am a princess. My ideal castle would be with a family who are home part-time with or without a doggy friend. Any doggy friends could be small, medium or large. I do play with toys, but am still learning all about fetch and often forget to bring things back, Realistically for me, I prefer to play and hang with my people. Slightly older children would be my preference as I can be a little more playful sometimes! If you think you could welcome me into your kingdom, then I would love to meet you!

This icon indicates that the greyhound prefers to be around children over the age of 5.

Female, 03/03/2016

Ruby is known as the stone of nobility, so I guess that means I am the greyhound of nobility, with the soft grey dusting on my nose. Not only that, but I am also considered "the best of all the gems". I have taken my name to heart and would absolutely love to find a home where I am treated like nobility and doted on by my humans who would be ideally home most of the time. Whilst I am still finding my feet, I would prefer that my family were quiet and soothing, so children over 13 would be my choice so they can appreciate how precious I am. I could also share my mind with another confident doggy friend who could show me the ropes, but they would need to be medium- large in size & tolerant. Rubies are also considered lucky and I can agree anyone would be lucky to have me as their new family member!

Male, 18/06/2020

...For A Clownfish, He Really Isn't That Funny...but I really, I am hilarious! I am a quirky and full of fun type of boy who can't help but put the biggest smile on everyone's face. I would LOVE to go out and about and be a part of everything but at the same time, like the ocean, the world is a big big place. So this means I need to find my feet before becoming the adventure buddy of a lifetime. I am only a dainty little boy, but I sure do make up for it in personality and general goofiness that is bound to make you smile. Another playful and active dog would be absolutely awesome, though preferably larger in size & robust, tolerant and playful (because let's be honest, I LOVE to play). My real love in life is people and therefore if I didn't have a doggy playmate, I would need to my people home more often then not so I could spend my days making them laugh with my goofy and silly nature. Whilst I am learning my doggy manners, it would be best for me to live with older children, perhaps over 13yrs for now as I love to love and always give 100% which might be too much love for anyone younger for now.

Male, 06/06/2019

Though I am as striking and streamlined as a classic car, I can be a bit unsure of new people and places. I find loud noises a bit scary so I would really love a quiet home and a family willing to work on my anxiety and help me flourish into the best version of myself. I can't quite decide whether or not doggy friends are for me, I could potentially go with a larger breed, independent friend. If I were the only dog in the home, I think I could manage periods on my own of up to 4hours on my own. Due to my anxious nature, it would be better if I went to a more mature household with children over 13 years.

Don't be put off by the name- the only thing infectious about me is my winning personality! I'm a bubbly little soul, quite comfortable in my own company. Having said that though, with manners as good as mine, I could live with just about any breed of dog! Hopefully a new doggy friend would be polite and respectful like me, otherwise I'm sure I could manage a working household on my own with the right enrichment. A family with children would, I'm sure get a lot out of having me as their pet, though maybe the kids should be over 10 as I can be a little excitable once I'm accustomed to my environment.

Male, 13/02/2017

My name may be Zipper but I'm in no rush. I can be a bit of an anxious boy when it comes to visiting new places and meeting new friends. The GAP team have said it would be best that my new family take things nice and slowly with me whilst I get used to the big wide world. I would suit a family with children over 8 years old - provided they have experience with dogs and understand to respect boundaries. I'd really prefer that my new family be home more often than not, maybe even with another polite doggy friend to help bolster my confidence.

I'm the most delicate little pixie in the GAP kennels. I just love being around people so much, I'd like to be your little shadow. The GAP team say it's very important that my new family be sure to implement some structure to my routine to help me cope when my people are away. With the right measures in place, they feel I could go to a part-time working household. Toys are a bit weird and scary...but if you are patient with me and show me how they work, the GAP team say I'll learn to enjoy them lots. Because I'm such a quiet little soul, another medium-large doggy friend might be nice to give me confidence- so long as they were polite with me. Dog-savvy children may also be lovely to play with, even as young as 5 if they know how to respect doggy boundaries.

Who's up for a delicious Chowder?! Everyone surely?? I know i find humans SO exciting, I'll be by your side every chance I get :) My favourite things ever are cuddles and affection....though I do forget my size and spatial awareness sometimes so the GAP team feel it'd be better if any children are over 13 so I don't accidentally knock anybody over! Because I'm so fond of humans, I'd prefer a family who were home more often than not and were happy to help me work on my confidence in being apart from them from time to time- at the moment I'm a real velcro-hound! I could be the only pet in the home with a family around most of the time- or some doggy company might be fun, if they were playful and active like me. Medium-large breeds would be best, a big lad like me needs a comparative-sized playmate :)

Hiya, I'm a little bean of playful-ness and cuddles. Toys are okay, but I do prefer my people instead. I would suit an active home who doesn't mind if I get a little carried away in my excitement sometimes whilst I am still learning my manners. I am friendly with other dogs but can sometimes get a little excited so bigger dogs would be better whilst I am still learning. I could go with experienced children however like I mentioned, I can get a little excitable, so it would need to be managed whilst I learn. Over all I am a fun-loving bundle of love and joy!

A handsome young lad who will do just about anything for a cuddle and a pat :) As humans are my favourite thing in the whole entire world, I don't really like to be apart from them so it is very important that my forever hone work with me to build my confidence and independence. I think with the right tools and a good routine in place I could manage a part-time working household- another doggy friend may help with that, so long as they were a playful and tolerant sort, ideally medium-large so my zoomies aren't too intimidating :) Children would be great fun, though the ladies at GAP reckon over 10 would be best as I can be quite enthusiastic with my cuddles!

I just celebrated my fourth birthday!!!

I am gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, my shiny black coat catches the gaze of everyone here.

Whilst I am stunning to look at, I can feel uneasy in new environments so would appreciate a quieter home with minimal noise.

As I am still learning how large I am so would probably be better for children aged 13years and over for now.

I tend to find myself drawn more to females, though I am sure I’ll become friends with anyone with snacks.

I do love company though so would prefer a household where I’m not alone for longer than 3-4hours.

I can still be a little unintentionally rude when greeting my smaller doggy friends (who knew my nose was sooooo long!) so at this stage would prefer my dog friends be larger for now.

The GAP staff will go through how to manage my interactions with other dogs so I can best learn how to approach them politely.

If I was to have a canine friend, I think I would go best with a calm and confident dog who could show me the ropes!

I'm an active boy, I love to get out and about with my people and explore the world. If you're looking for the perfect best bud to keep you company I'm your man! So don't 'Rain on my parade...give me a home :)

I'm a real social butterfly! The best bit of my day is getting to spend time with all my human friends!

New places and people can make me a bit anxious at first....I get all full of nervous energy. Once I'm comfortable with you though I'm an absolute smooch.

Toys are AWESOME! I really love playing with them and for this reason I could probably manage being by myself for up to 6hours if left with enrichment to entertain me.

Despite my previous injury I've still got a ton of energy; the GAP team say that my ideal home would be a family with the patience to continue my training and make me feel comfortable taking life in the slow lane and learning to enjoy my retirement.

As I can be a bit of a boof-head, I'd prefer a mature family where I'm their only baby :)
