Additional Adoption Fee Information
GALT is charging an adoption fee of $750 for Australian retired racing greyhounds 7 years and younger and $650 for those 8 and over.
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.
For its almost 22 years in existence, GALT has operated as a 501 (c) 3 Corporation. The Australian retired racers’ adoption fee correlates to this policy.
This hound’s adoption fee is: $750
June, aka Jimary June, is a fawn female greyhound born July 28, 2020 who is from Australia. Her sire is Zambora Brockie and her dam is Jimary Vixen. June has just 3 races to her credit on greyhound data. She is in intake and should be available soon. She should not live with cats, small dogs, or young children.
June is an almost three-year-old retired racer from Australia. She is an absolute stunner, with beautiful, black-tipped fawn fur and expressive eyes. She is spirited, happy, and people-centric, and her tail is always wagging. She wants to be wherever we are in the house and will stand next to us or put her head in our laps to ask for attention and affection. She also loves to meet new people and will happily accept pats from whoever wants to give them.
June learned the stairs on her first day and sleeps on a dog bed in our bedroom. The first night, she tried to climb into bed with us, and quickly learned that the dog beds are for her; they are soft and just right for her frequent roaching. She loves people, craves attention, and wants to give and get lots of loving. She willingly goes into her crate but would probably do best with people who are not gone for long periods of time.
June is strong and has a big personality, and she approaches everything with exuberance and energy. She loves to go for walks – ever alert for squirrels and other “prey” – and can pull hard on the leash. June loves mealtime and quickly finishes her bowl and any other bowl if given an opening. An opportunistic counter-surfer, she should be supervised if in the vicinity of food or treats. June has discovered the joy of toys, primarily squeaky plushies as well as the occasional shoe or sock, and she has learned to share.
This June-bug is a love-bug and is looking for a forever home that will give and receive abundant affection. She is currently living with another greyhound. They play together from time to time but she is more interested in the human members of her household. We believe she would do equally well as an only dog, if she has enough time and attention from her people, or in a house with other greys.
Because she has a high prey drive, she should not live with cats or small dogs. She has not been in a household with small children. Due to her strength and exuberance, we think she should initially be supervised around small children to ensure no one gets knocked over unintentionally.
