Hugo the Greyhound

A happy tale for Hugo & family

For at least a year before we put in an application to adopt a greyhound from Friends of the Hound, I'd carry around a FOTH pamphlet acquired from market stalls (at West End and Eumundi) in my bag and would whip it out at random so my wife Marian would get the hint. Not very subtle!

Sooty's story

Sooty’s story – a beloved addition

We just wanted to thank ALL involved in the adoption of our very-loved girl, Sooty.


Losing 4 beloved pets over the past 4 years had taken a toll on us, but we wanted to adopt another rescue dog. We love that both Lyndal & Alison took the time to get to know us and our needs to work out what hound would suit us and our lifestyle. We appreciate the duty of care shown with the whole process. As soon as I met Sooty, I fell in love with her.

Lonely the Greyhound

Not Lonely anymore – a happy tale

We decided to get a companion for our Spaniel/Collie cross Cloudy as she had been grieving for her long time best friend of 14 years, Dusty.


Cloudy had become anxious, sad and had lost interest in life over the 6 month period that Dusty had passed. We had always thought we would love to adopt a greyhound so we applied to FOTH.

Alfie & Ollie

The Greyhound learning curve

Alfie and Ollie came into our lives just over 3 months ago (through the FOTH Brisbane team).


We were new to greyhounds 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!

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 and snoods.

Parker with his family

Parker finds his family

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. We decided that a rescue dog was the path we wanted to take, and so the search began. We had always had a greyhound in the back of our minds, and when Parker popped up in a search, I was immediately taken in by the story of his broken leg and long recovery.
