Considering a Whippet?

transferred71008 1875.jpg

If you are looking for a rescue whippet, you may have to wait awhile. Fortunately there are very few whippets in rescue nationally at any one time. This is partly due to a commitment by whippet breeders to take back dogs of their own breeding when necessary. Most whippet breeders also are willing to help any whippet in distress at any time.

Whippets are not nearly as delicate as they appear and are usually excellent with gentle children. As long as a child is old enough to know how to treat him and is taught how to play with dogs, a whippet is a good choice for a child. A very young child should never be left alone with a dog of any breed and interaction between a child and a puppy must be closely supervised, for the protection of both.
