Considering a Whippet?

Appraxin Kamikaze -- Chase

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.

How Much Does a Whippet Cost?

Though the price of a whippet puppy or young adult varies from region to region, it's in the ballpark of $700 - $1200 in the eastern part of the United States. Prices may be higher in the Northeast and California. The majority of whippet breeders don't make money on their puppies. With genetic testing, routine care for the mother, vet care for the puppies, and a dozen other expenses, they often don't so much as break even. Breeding dogs, done right, is a rather expensive hobby rather than a business. Rescue's adoption fee is around $250-300.
