Rescue Me ID: 15-06-15-00671Lily (female)

Whippet Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Lily is a 4-year old, medium sized dog--24.4 lbs. Her face is a Chihuahua. I call her Chihuahua Gigantica. Her last health exam was May 5, 2015, at which she was a given a clean bill of health. She is up to date on all her vaccinations and is spayed. Personality: she is a timid dog, preferring humans to other dogs, but gets along with other dogs. She gets along with cats. She is not an alpha dog. She only barks when someone knocks on the door. We walk everyday and although there will be dogs barking all around/at her, she does not bark back. She loves to run, especially after squirrels and deer. She never catches them. She just likes ... (Read More)the chase. She listens to commands: sit, down, no, come here, drop it, go. She does not run out of an open door. She will go out but stays close (she knows when she has it good). She is very loving and gentle. I would trust her in a nursery and with babies. I've seen my 6 and 2 year-old niece and nephew dress her up and carry her around and even play with her food; Lily never snapped or bit them. She just tolerated it all. I really want to find her a good home who will love her. (Less)

Whippet Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Onyx - 1 yr old female spayed lab/whippet mix we think. Runs very fast and jumps very high. She would do great with an active family with a 6 foot fence. Probably not good for young children but older respectful kids should be ok.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Whippet in Virginia
    Whippet Dogs can make good pets in Virginia 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.
