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

Rob, aka Blackjack Cougar, is a 4 year old black male greyhound born February 11, 2019 and is from Australia. His sire is Barcia Bale and his dam is Trianna. Rob has 46 races to his credit on Greyhound Data. He has yet to be evaluated for cats but should not live with small dogs. Rob would do well with older children.

Rob is getting the hang of being a pet. He is very much a people dog and follows me around the house everywhere. He always wants me in his sight. He has not barked since he has been with us so he may very well be ok in an apartment.  
Rob LOVES his walks!! He receives 2 in the morning during the week (one very early morning with his foster dad and the other a couple of hours later with me). On the weekends we take him for a very long walk. He gets along well with our male greyhound and they play together at times. 
Rob might be ok as an only dog since he loves his people, though I think it would be better if his person was not gone for long periods of time during the day. If he had a housemate, they would learn to sort things out. Rob is a HUGE toy hoarder/collector. He will sometimes lay on his toys he has collected instead of a dog bed. He can be a little pushy and will try to get on the dog bed when our greyhound is already laying there or try to take a toy away. We have been working with Rob to stop him when he does this and he’s slowly understanding these behaviors are not welcome. 
Rob has not even made an attempt to get on furniture. He is learning to lay down when we are eating as he is not allowed near the table. Rob sleeps in the crate at night and stays there during the day when I am gone for a few hours. Rob is a good boy and sure does LOVE attention!
