Ardia has learnt to walk well however is a very strong boy and would need a capable handler. He has also spent time learning to jump up into the back of the car, which he can now do without assistance, however is still a little reluctant to jump into the back seat but grows in confidence each time. He is good in the lounge room, he is calm and relaxed.
GAP has two avenues to adopt. You can either adopt a dog that has gone through foster care, their adoption fee is $300, or adopt a dog that hasn’t gone through foster care ( self foster) their adoption fee is $250. In both instances the dogs are your’s, after 28 days if all is well we will transfer the microchip into your name.
Ardia has now gone into foster care (26/6) he is there as an only dog, he still gets to go on walks with other breeds whilst in foster care. Ardia’s foster carer will provide weekly updates on his progress which will be placed here for you to read. If you would like to meet Ardia after his three weeks on foster care then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The reason behind Gaptas fostering a greyhound out prior to offering them for adoption is to prepare them for the many different situations & experiences they will encounter in their new life as a pet. The other aim of foster care is to gauge & provide feedback on the dogs temperament and responses to different situations to determine the most appropriate home to suit the dog. The entire foster period is an information gathering phase as well as setting firm rules and boundaries to help the greyhound transition.
To help the dog along we ask of the following in foster care.
- House training
- Sleeping on their own bed
- Walking calmly on lead
- Walking up and down stairs
- Get in and out of a car
- Alone time
- Basic commands – No, On your bed, Wait
