Rescue Me ID: 17-11-14-00119Miss Scarlett (female)

Whippet Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    An ideal family dog who will lose her family. Scarlett, age 5, loves people of all ages, baths, snuggling on couch and she graduated training with honors. Her family is moving and will bring her to the shelter unless a home is found. Tragic. Rather incredible given her happy life with them since puppyhood. But you can turn her life around. Scarlett is fully house and kennel trained, knows tricks, and is very mellow in the house. She is great on a leash and energetic: loves to hike... is the ideal hiking and biking mate! Scarlett prefers male dogs, large male dogs even better! She also sheds very little. Scarlett is spayed, heartworm ... (Read More)negative, in very good health. Ask us for more pictures. See her video: Please fill out an application asap at under heading Adopt. You can meet her in Winston Salem or Asheville. This is a fabulous dog. We will also transport to an approved home. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-11-06-00372Scarlett (female)

Whippet Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Scarlett is a sweet, beautiful active girl. Her perfect day consists of going outside to run and hunt. Since she is a sight hunter she scans the trees and woods all day. Her day is complete when the deer and turkeys come to visit in the evenings. Scarlett is a true Prima Donna, she loves to lay with you while you watch TV, she adores being petted ( except her ears). She has never been used to hunt, but she is driven with the drive that is her breed. We don't know if she is a pure Whippet, but she has a lot of the traits. She was adopted as a rescue puppy. But now our family is having to relocate to a much smaller property and there would be ... (Read More)no area for Scarlett to run. Right now she has almost 4 acres to explore. The new location is just a tiny lot. So we feel it is in her best interest to find her a loving family that has the room to let her Run Like The Wind. You will fall in love with this sweet girl. We hope that there is someone out there that can give our baby a new love filled home. (Less)

Whippet Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Looking to rehome Miss Scarlett. She was adopted as a puppy and we've had her almost five years. Due to family and health issues, we have recently moved and our new home just doesn't have the room she deserves. She loves to run and play all day, she has a high prey drive. Our new yard is very small and it seems like a disservice to her to keep her in it, but we don't want her running away either. She is very house trained, knows basic commands, loves to give kisses and cuddles and will snuggle all night in your bed. She tends to get along more with large male dogs. We have a cat that she mostly leaves alone except the occasional sniff. She's ... (Read More)been raised around a small child and does great with all kids and adults. (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.
