Considering a Whippet?

Boo

People who are serious about whippets and about breeding carefully nearly always show or race their dogs, at least a little. And yes, they plan litters hoping to get a great winner. But most of the puppies in every litter will go to pet homes because of a minor cosmetic or structural flaw (often noticeable only to the breeder!) --- the breeder can only keep so many whippets! Those pet puppies come from the same meticulously planned breeding and receive the same attention and loving care as the "pick of the litter." That's why you want to buy your pet from a breeder who shows or races.

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.
