Who Are We?
Greyhound Re-Homing is a privately run initiative set up to address the shortage of re-homing avenues for Greyhounds, especially in regional NSW.
Greyhound Re-Homing operates out of Manilla, which is located in North West NSW. We predominately take in Greyhounds from pounds or trainers in & around the Tamworth area. We prefer to take dogs straight form Owners & Trainers, so that we can gather relevant information.
We have over 20 years' experience with Greyhounds of all shapes, sizes & age. Jodi Green (our founder) grew up in racing kennels and has had dealings with all aspects of the greyhound lifecycle from birth onwards. She does not race & has no immediate involement in todays racing life.
After finishing full time employment (which included a lot of travel) Jodi went looking for a companion & found Patch in the pound... Upon doing some research into the groups for greyhounds in regional NSW, she noticed that there is a severe lack of options for greyhounds in regional NSW who are not suitable for racing. From this research we started working with existing groups to network hounds, learn more about the re-homing side of greyhounds (from a groups perspective) & eventually Greyhound Re-Homing was formed.
We are a small group, with only a few volunteers and we do not use kennels. Each dog that enters our care comes straight to Greyhound Re-Homing HQ (Jodi's place) for their vetwork & temperament testing, living inside until they find a foster home or their forever home.
Looking For A Very Special Home
Jai is looking for a very special home with no small animals and his new family would ideally have previous greyhound ownership experience. Here's a little bit about him:
Jai is our resident chunky monkey! He weighs in at a cool 36kg... Even though he isn't the biggest hound, he is solid. He is 6yrs old, so isn't a puppy but he plays with his toys like he is still a pup. He loves toys and will amuse himself for quite a while with a squeaky one.
He is looking for a home as a single dog or with another large dog as a companion. As long as he has some snacks to nibble on & some toys to play with, Jai is quite happy to keep himself occupied while you leave... But he will gladly greet you home with his big voice. For this reason, we think Jai will need a home with a yard.
Jai can be a bit possessive of his toys, so will need a strong willed owner, as he can also try to boss you around if he thinks he can push you around. Jai is living with multiple other greyhounds (currently 4, but there has been 3 & 10 hounds in the house at times). Jai is muzzled when the hounds are left alone, as the toys are left out for them to play with.
