Considering a Whippet?

Whippet breeders are very protective of the breed. Most will ask you to sign an agreement that a puppy sold as a pet will not be bred. This precaution is to safeguard the quality and health of whippets as a whole. In popular breeds where careless or uninformed breeding is common, temperaments and appearances vary so widely that it's hard to believe that some of the dogs are even the same breed! Careless or ill-informed breeding has made many breeds shy, snappy, and unstable. We don't want whippets to go there!

Though the price of a whippet puppy or young adult varies from region to region, it's in the ballpark of $800 - $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.
