Rescue Me ID: 15-08-12-00408Machete (male)

Whippet Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Machete' needed a big scary name to give him some confidence! I found him on the Appalachian Trail totally emaciated with scars all over his legs at about 4 months old. He was very shy, and it's obvious he was abused by whoever had him last. He can get a little spooked and sprinkle just a little bit (I'm talking drops) if he's scared. I would too, if I had such a hard life as a baby! He is the sweetest dog on the planet and learns tricks super super fast. He does great with children, however I prefer him to be in a home with older kids that understands how fragile he is. (He's only about ten pounds) I will not let him go to a house without a ... (Read More)fenced in yard and I may want to do a home check. I've rescued dogs my whole life and Machete' is a very special one who needs lots of love. I put his adoption price at $300 because he's been neutered, potty trained, crate trained, knows how to sit and lay down, but most of all I want to make sure whoever gets him really wants him and won't give him up. He's had a hard enough life already and needs a forever home. My husband and I were going to kee him, but then found out I need chest surgery this September. So, we have decided that just like any of our other foster dogs, we have to find him a 'furrever' home too. If you email me, please confirm you have a fenced in yard and tell me how many children and pets are in the house. I don't let my foster dogs go to just anyone. (Less)

Whippet Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hello, We unfortunately have to re-home Ace because we are unable to give him the attention he needs with both of us working. He is a incredible intelligent dog and loves to cuddle, he thinks he is a lap dog. he is kennel trained but also is fine being free in the house if you are away too.[ if you put away the food :) ].

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.
