The Australian greyhounds arrive to us spayed or neutered with current rabies vaccinations. The transportation cost averages $1,620 per dog, and GALT spends another approximately $400 for CBC blood work with heartworm test, Protatek testing, dental and vaccinations required for this environment.

Harry, aka Sir Erskin, is a red fawn male greyhound born April 11, 2018 and is from Australia. Sire is Don’t Knocka Him and dam is White Bait. Harry has 55 races to his credit on Greyhound Data. Harry has yet to be evaluated for cats but has shown promise with small dogs.
Harry is such a sweet boy who loves life. He gets along great with our dog, great with children and loves to be with people. He is gentle, kind and oh so handsome. He is a good eater, crates really well, does not get on furniture and is the best roacher!
He rides great in the car, loves chew bones, is a little mischievous at times and will grab a pillow or throw blanket and run off with it, and stern NO and he drops it. He is a quick learner and listens to commands.
It’s been too hot to go on walks, though he did well on leash when he was at the kennel. Harry would do best in a home with a yard to run in, an apartment setting would be too confining. He does bark at loud noises like fireworks and thunder, and quiets down when asked to.
Harry is a big sweet lovable boy looking for a family to call his very own
