Considering a Whippet?

Timbreblue Plays in Puddles - "Simon"

A whippet is not a good choice if you have outside cats. Remember that this breed was developed to chase and kill small, furry running creatures. They may be best friends in the house, but once outside, your whippet's beloved Muffy becomes prey! Chasing is a deeply rooted whippet instinct, and you can't train it out.  Don't worry...the picture above is just a stuffed toy!

Though the price of a whippet puppy or young adult varies from region to region, it's in the ballpark of $700 - $1500 in the eastern part of the United States. Prices may be higher in the Northeast and California. The majority of whippet breeders don't make money on their puppies. With genetic testing, routine care for the mother, vet care for the puppies, and a dozen other expenses, they often don't so much as break even. Breeding dogs, done right, is a rather expensive hobby rather than a business. Rescue's adoption fee is around $250-300.
