Adopt a Snoot

Home / Adopt a Snoot

Our greyhounds are fully vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped. Please view our dogs available for adoption on PetRescue or fill out our online adoption form, and we’ll be in touch. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!

Our process is simple

Each and every greyhound has its own unique personality, quirks and needs. At GGR we take great pride in matching each of our greys to a forever home based on their needs, to ensure a happy and smooth transition. 

Our greyhounds are fostered in homes and there is regular communication with their foster carers. As a result we get a great sense of what their ideal home should be. 

First steps: 

Step 1. Complete an EOI form – if the greyhound you have applied for is unavailable or unsuitable, we will endeavour to match you with a more suitable greyhound.

Step 2. Once we have reviewed the EOI form, we’ll phone you to assess suitability, clarify any points of your application and chat about the process and next steps. 

Step 3. Home Check & Meet + Greet. We’ll come to your home and conduct a ‘home check’ to ensure your home is safe and suitable for a greyhound. We always check that fences/balconies are high enough and that the greyhound has a cosy, warm place inside to sleep at night. 

At the same we will conduct a meet + greet with your new greyhound. This is where you can ask any questions you may have about anything and everything! It is on the meet + greet day that you’ll commence your three-week trial with your new snoot! 

All of our greyhounds are adopted out with the following: 

  • Collar, coat, lead and muzzle  
  • Certificates of C5 vaccination and desexing
  • Flea and worm treated 
  • Care information for your newly adopted greyhound as well as access to our private Facebook page for foster carers and adopters of our hounds. This is a community with invaluable advice and support! 

Reasons to adopt a hound

Greyhounds, long snoots, noodle babies – whatever you call them, are so funny, gentle, loving, quirky and truly unique.  Whether they have had a life of racing or not they are unlike any other dog, they feel deeply and can be quite expressive with their emotions.

They have the softest most velvety ears you’ll ever touch! They are so grateful for their second chance at a real life and will never stop reminding you how grateful they are, making sure you are safe at all times, in the shower, at the loo, cooking tea, watching a movie, whatever the task you will have a trusty companion! 

We believe they deserve to be part of a family and not used and abused for their gangly, silly bodies and speedy zoomies.  Speaking of which, these zoomies often come out of nowhere and with no warning.  The noodle hound will often arise after a 23-hour nap to stretch, flap its ears vigorously before undertaking a serious zoomie noodling, normally complete in a matter of seconds before collapsing back into bed where another nap will be required.

They have the most unique personalities and are real characters. They are a constant source of entertainment and fun.  No household is complete without the laughter and companionship they bring.

They’re big! But don’t let their size fool you, as they are real lap dogs and love to be your snuggle buddy, they love sleep and are incredibly chill. Yes, chasing is in their blood but if you can manage 15mins of fun time they’ll manage 23.45 hours of chill time. 

If you want to make friends in your neighbourhood and across the world, adopt a grey. All the cafe owners will be welcoming because these noodles are calm, not yappy and always attract a crowd of admirers.

They are the most pure creatures to ever fill your couch and love their stuffed animals.  They shove their snoots in the most illogical places and wrap those long lanky limbs around you. Picture cuddling a bag of elbows, with a beautiful set of eyes that looks into your soul and loves you unconditionally.

Their loving eyes and their unconditional love – we feel this from all our fur babies and then there’s love from a grey…it’s next level. Pure loving souls.  They are not a dog… they are a long dog.  They will get their wet snoot and stamp it on your bare skin, and then on your heart.

If you want company of the finest kind, look no further, and as soon as one stares into your eyes, you’re done for, you’ll rush to join the cult.

3 seconds to fall in love and 3 minutes to complete the paperwork, 3 weeks to settle in and 3 months to unwind and realise they’re safe and home.
