Rescue Me ID: 15-03-31-00128Maisey (female)

Whippet Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    My name is Maisey. I'm a tiny package of fun, that has adorable written ALL over me! I have so much going for me, besides my good looks, that you are just going to want to make me yours in a heartbeat. I am house and crate trained. I know the command 'sit' and I am learning to 'lie down'. I LOVE car rides and think the best place to co-pilot from is in your lap. I should probably be secured in the backseat so we both can concentrate on the road. :) I have two furry foster siblings that I get along with very well; even the grouchy foster sister has succumbed to my charms and lets me hang out with her now. I'm a very well-balanced gal. If ... (Read More)you take the time to introduce me properly to other doggies, I can get along with most any of them. I love, love, love to cuddle. I can curl up into such a small ball next to you, that you'll think you adopted a cat instead of a petite pittie that actually comes when you call, unlike those felines that could care less. I LOVE to curl up on any soft surface; beds (yours), couches and cushioned chairs are the bomb-diggity. I can't get enough of cuddles and cushions and blankies! Don't get me wrong, cuddling is only part of my charm. I love, love, love to play. I have the cutest little dance I like to do when I get excited; which is most anytime I see you. I stomp my little front feet and wiggle my butt for all I'm worth. I talk too, when I get excited'|play with me'|play with me'|play with me. Please excuse me, though, if it takes me a few seconds to make sure you are best friend worthy. I am doing my best to overcome my past, but someone way back when wasn't so nice to me, and that has made me just a little bit timid with strangers. Once you pass muster, I'm all kisses and butt wiggles. Because I am still working on my confidence, I will do best in a home with big kids that know how to be gentle with doggies like me, who are happy dogs in scaredy-cat bodies. So what do you say? Are you looking for a happy dancing, couch cuddling, want-to-please, friend to other dogs kind of girl? Well, look no further! That's ME. You can learn all about how you can make me yours by checking out BARC's policy page: http://barcdogs.org/Adopt_Info.html (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-10-00228Radar (male)

Whippet Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Radar is completely adorable! We are unsure on his specific breed but have made our best guess, but really with his personality and adorable ears, it doesn't matter! Radar was found with his 3 brothers dumped on the side of the road scavenging for food. He came right up to me, jumped in the car and said take me to safety! He has a beautiful coat and his eyes are stunning. Radar is pretty quiet and laid back but playful. He is very loveable and simply wants to please. He is housetrained, uses a doggy door and sleeps through the night without a problem. He has not been a chewer. He loves to snuggle and gives gentle little kisses. He is a ... (Read More)little timid but warms up quickly. He gets along with all the other rescue dogs. Please consider adding this sweet boy to your family where he will never be dumped on the side of the road again. If interested in adopting Radar please visit KRRTX.ORG and fill out an application. KRR is a TX based rescue that works with transports to bring adoptable dogs out of high kill TX to the NE area. The adoption fee of $355 covers the cost of transportation and health certificate. Thank you for considering adding Radar to your home! (Less)

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.
