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

Sheila, aka Chasin Jax, is a black female born March 29, 2020.  Her sire is Orson Allen and her dam is Sheza Temptress and she has 10 races to her credit. Sheila is an Australian hound. It is unknown if she can live with cats or small animals but gets along well with other dogs.

Sheila is a very friendly, happy and playful dog. She has lots of energy and loves to chase squeaky tennis balls in the yard. She has an adorable black, super soft coat. She loves to be cuddled and petted. Toys make her very happy. Sheila wants all the toys – the squeakier the better…and she will share! Sheila loves to go on walks. When she first arrived, she pulled a lot while on leash; with lots of walks under her belt, she has gotten so much better. We have not had her in close proximity to any cats or small dogs. We have seen both small dogs and cats while out walking and she has no reaction to either. She is looking for rabbits, afterall! 

She has figured out the dog door and will go out when she wants, though mostly has decided that she likes being indoors. Sheila loves people and always wants to be next to someone. She is good around other dogs, but she mostly loves people. She would be fine as an only dog – more attention for her! She also loves a good car ride. Errands to run? Sheila would love to keep you company! 

When we leave the house, we put Sheila in her crate. Our other two greyhounds stay in the bedroom with her and she has done fine for the few hours we are gone. Sheila sleeps in her crate at night – we leave the door open; she is comfortable in there and goes right to sleep. She is also an early riser – yes, even on Saturdays. Once she is walked and fed, she usually plays a bit and then goes in for her afternoon nap. 

Shelia will be a wonderful addition for a family looking to add a joyful, happy-go-lucky companion dog with people to love, a bed for napping and plenty of toys for more playtime!
