About Whippets

'WE HAVE HAD WHIPPETS IN OUR FAMILY FOR NEARLY 50 YEARS AND I WOULDN'T CHANGE MY BREED. I KNOW THEM INSIDE AND OUT AND I HAD WHIPPETS ALL MY 38 YEARS OF LIFE!
THEY ARE VERY, VERY AFFECTIONATE AND THEY LOVE ANYONE WHO IS AFFECTIONATE TO THEM.

WHIPPETS ARE A GENTLE, SWEET NATURED AND DOCILE BREED. THEY MAKE EXCELLENT PETS REQUIRING VERY LITTLE GROOMING AND ACCEPTING AS MUCH OR AS LITTLE EXERCISE AS AVAILABLE. THEY HAPPILY ACCEPT THE COMFORT OF OTHER ANIMALS OR HUMANS.

WITH THEIR ELEGANT, SLEEK BODIES AND FANTASTIC SPEEDS THEY CAN MAKE EXCELLENT RACING DOGS.

CALLED "WHIPPETS" BECAUSE OF THEIR WHIPING TAILS. (BELIEVE YOU ME WHEN THEY SHAKE AFTER A WASH/BATH THEIR TAILS REALLY DO HURT)

Barney's owner - Sherri
