Considering a Whippet?
Because most whippet breeders place their puppies very carefully, do not overbreed, and always take back dogs of their breeding, there are seldom many whippets in rescue at any one time. It's unusual to have more than ten or 12 available nationally. If you want to adopt a rescue, contact the closest Whippet Rescue and Placement member near you for an application. In Virginia, contact your closest independent whippet rescuer.
We do NOT ship dogs
It has always been our policy to meet new owners in person, at Timbreblue.
Changes to the federal Animal Welfare Act regulations that took effect on Nov. 18, 2013 make it ILLEGAL for pet breeders without a USDA license (requiring a very expensive commercial kennel operation) to ship pets unless they have four or fewer intact females and never do rescue. We comply fully with these regulations.
Aimée's pups born April 6
Our amazing Aimée ("Timbreblue Dances at the Moulin Rouge", daughter of Blue and Juliet) welcomed a litter of 6 whippet puppies on April 6th, sired by Bomber (Ch Surrey Hill's U Sunk My Battleship! FCh). These puppies all have homes confirmed, but if you're looking for a whippet puppy, feel free to contact us and we'll help you find a breeder with puppies in your area.
Tallulah's litter due mid-April
One of our blue girls who lives near Toronto has been bred and is expecting a litter in April. Visit our blog for photos of her growing baby bump, and feel free to contact us to be put in touch with her owner about puppies from that litter.
Our waiting list
We are in the planning stages for a litter in Virginia, and possibly one in South Carolina, before the end of this year. We'll make an announcement when pregnancy is confirmed. Please let us know if you are interested in being on our waiting list. We keep an ongoing waiting list for our puppies, and most litters are entirely sold before they are born, but we will be happy to refer you to trusted fellow breeders who might have puppies sooner.
