Alfie & Ollie

The Greyhound learning curve

Alfie and Ollie came into our lives just over 3 months ago (through Brisbane FOTH). We were new to greyhounds and so it was a learning curve for both them and us! I have always been a big believer that animals become part of the family, however I never quite expected how much these two gorgeous creatures would impact our lives! Trust...

Skye’s the limit for this happy hound

Lachie and Nellie adopted Skye from FOTH and doesn't she have a happy tale! She has come out of her shy shell and started showing off her playful, cheeky, and slightly kooky personality. Her coat has become glossier and she is confident with both her parents. She has a range of beds and blankets as well as her choice of coats...

I had finally persuaded my husband that we needed a second dog. We already had a wonderful Staffordshire terrier, Duke, and a black short-haired cat, Miles, but I felt it was time to add to the family.

Fiona from Friends of the Hounds contacted me saying that she thought she had the perfect...

Harry's New Life

Harry’s new life

"It all began when we were sitting in the car park at Bunning's one day and my husband randomly said that he would love to have a black greyhound and call him Winston (a name that we will have to save for another time). As we already have a beautiful whippet named Penny, it seemed natural that our next move...

Sisters reunited - Elsie & Freda

Sisters reunited – meet Elsie & Freda

Elsie and Freda’s adoption story. By Peggy Naumov - Greyhound Mum I had met rescue greyhounds at the Brisbane Ekka several years ago, all laying so relaxed on sofas in the dog exhibit. Their carers patiently told me of the plight of these beautiful, calm Greyhounds. That stayed with me, and I was always fortunate to speak to people that owned Greyhounds and...
