Amber is under 1, red brindle female that came from a hoarding situation. She is a very happy girl, though still somewhat shy … she is certainly getting used to the comforts of a home. She and 18 other whippets were living all together isolated from the normal outside world. These dogs unfortunately have never been properly socialized so are slowly coming out of their shells with time and lots of patience and understanding. With Amber being on the younger side she will hopefully blossom quicker. She might do better with another dog, or she could probably do just fine alone. The reason for another dog, would be to build her confidence. Due to the circumstances Amber and all of the whippets have lived in they certainly will require a safe and structured home and we feel would not be suitable with children under 10. Amber is now in a foster home where she is getting acclimated in a true home type setting and adjusting to all the new sights and sounds. Amber is under 25 lbs and has been spayed, microchipped and up to date on her vaccines. She is crate and potty trained.
Due to no previous training, it would felt that basic obedience training would really help her understand her new lifestyle and learn manners. We are also requiring a completely fenced in yard for her safety. If you think that you would be able to provide a proper home and meet the qualifications, please fill out an application. Please note at this time we are only considering homes that are no more than three hours from the Chicagoland area.
