Considering a Whippet?

Breeders often have adult whippets looking for homes for various reasons. Sometimes a show puppy doesn't live up to her potential; occasionally there's a dog who doesn't get along with another dog in the household. Sometimes a breeder just realizes she has more whippets than she needs! (They are addictive, after all.) If you want an adult whippet, check with rescue first. If there are no rescues available in your area, start checking with breeders.

.... whippets, like people, are individuals. The guidelines given here cover most of the whippets we have known, but for every rule we've known a whippet who didn't fit. Obviously we think this breed is the greatest. We also want to be sure anyone acquiring a whippet knows their special challenges before taking one home.

Please see Reasons Not to Get a Whippet at Kismet Sighthounds for a listing of just about every potential drawback of whippets! We also recommend the American Whippet Club's site, especially the Frequently Asked Questions page. And if you have further questions, contact us!
