Whippet Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We raised Harold since he was a puppy and was mothered by his sister, Maggie. He has been well cared for by us with documentation. He is a healthy mild mannered pet, very intelligent, and watchful. His eyes are soulful and very beautiful. He seems to have an expression of waiting for your next trick. He does not like to be hugged but will cuddle unconditionally.He just recently received his booster shots. He loves to run and is fast chasing furry things as is a dog's nature. That is why we have to find him a new home outside of Forsyth County, N.C. He and his sister killed a cat. Animal control has mislabeled him a dangerous dog with all its ... (Read More)conditions and we cannot keep them. He is the opposite of aggressive. We are heartbroken and are trying to do everything we can to avoid having to put them down.They can go either together or separately. (Less)

Whippet Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey new buds! My name is Daisy Mae and I am so glad you stopped to say hello. No one has been willing to adopt me because they think I look like a pitbull puppy, but I am now almost a year old, and still very small! With my slender, small figure, my rescue thinks I may be a Whippet or Italian Greyhound mixed with something slightly larger! I am about 8 months old and I was found with my brother Little Bear by our foster family. We were lost and hungry and scared. We were so glad someone finally stopped for us! Since we came to live with our foster family we don't have to worry about being hungry or afraid anymore! Also they took us to the ... (Read More)doggie doctor and we got shots and medicine for those icky fleas that were making us itch! Our foster family says I am a wild child! I love to run and play and get into a little mischief now and then. I am fearless and fun, at least that is what they call me! Foster mom says I would be best for older kids because I still do some puppy nipping and I have been stubborn about stopping that. I tell my foster mom they are just love nips. My foster family said we can start looking for my forever family and I am so excited! If you would like to meet me just let the rescue ladies know by sending an email! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Whippet in North Carolina
    Whippet Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina if they match your IifestyIe. The Whippet is a small, elegant, Greyhound-like breed. Whippets are calm and affectionate. Whippets are excellent with respectful children and get along fine with dogs. A Whippet is not a good choice for a home with non-canine pets. Whippets need to be protected from extreme cold. With enough exercise, a Whippet does fine in an apartment or a home with a small yard.
