Considering a Whippet?
Because most whippet breeders place their puppies very carefully, do not overbreed, and always take back dogs of their breeding, there are seldom many whippets in rescue at any one time. It's unusual to have more than ten or 12 available nationally. If you want to adopt a rescue, contact the closest Whippet Rescue and Placement member near you for an application. In Virginia, contact your closest independent whippet rescuer.
We do NOT ship dogs
It has always been our policy to meet new owners in person, at Timbreblue.
Changes to the federal Animal Welfare Act regulations that took effect on Nov. 18, 2013 make it ILLEGAL for pet breeders without a USDA license (requiring a very expensive commercial kennel operation) to ship pets unless they have four or fewer intact females and never do rescue. We comply fully with these regulations.
Our beautiful Fiona, daughter of Rini and Henry, welcomed a litter of 13 (yes, thirteen!) healthy babies born naturally at home on May 22, 2016. These puppies have all gone home with their new families, but if you're interested in a future litter, please contact us. We're posting lots of pics and videos of Fiona's Thirteen on our Facebook group.
Our waiting list
We are in the planning stages for a litter before the end of 2016. We'll make an announcement when pregnancy is confirmed. Please let us know if you are interested in being on our waiting list. We keep an ongoing waiting list for our puppies, and most litters are entirely promised before they are born, but we will be happy to refer you to trusted fellow breeders who might have puppies sooner.
