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.
Puppies expected soon
Tiger Lily (daughter of Devon and Chippy) is expecting a litter of puppies sired by Butters ("GCH DC Surrey Hill's Golden Boy") on or around August 29th. We have a waiting list for this litter, but please fill out a questionnaire if you're interested. Find out more about Tiger Lily's litter.
Future litter plans
We are in the planning stages for a litter this fall/winter. We'll make an announcement when pregnancy is confirmed. Please let us know if you are interested in being on the list for this litter. Our waiting list usually fills up several few months in advance, but we will be happy to refer you to trusted fellow breeders who might have puppies sooner.
