Considering a Whippet?

Timbreblue Thinks She's Houdini -- Carly!

One test of whether you're talking to a good breeder is to ask whether she has a lifetime take-back policy. A good breeder feels responsible for the lives she has produced, period. If at the age of 5 or or 10, your dog cannot stay with you, your breeder should be willing to take him back, or at least help you find another home for him.

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.
