Considering a Whippet?

ConsiderĀ bringing homeĀ a senior rescue whippet. These older dogs are often the easiest to manage, the most appreciative, and need lots of love in their final years. There's no better way to learn about whippets and decide if this is really the breed for you than to live with one for awhile, and a senior, after all, is not the long-term commitment that a puppy or young adult would be.

Children

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. For some excellent information about kids and dogs, see Diamonds in the Ruff: Toddlers and Dogs. If you have older children, they'll enjoy the activity-intensive How to Love Your Dog.
