Ralph is approximately 4 years old, mostly solid black that came from a hoarding situation. He 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 Ralph is outgoing and leash trained. He would do just fine in a home without any other dogs, or if the resident dog was submissive and not a threat to him, but NO cats. He seems to be somewhat confident on his own. Due to the circumstances Ralph 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. Currently Ralph is in a foster home, so that he can get used to new sounds and activities that are in a home and enjoy the outside world. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccines. Ralph is crate trained and potty trained. Ralph would like a fenced in yard to play in, this is not a mandatory requirement as he likes to be walked on a leash. 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 four hours from the Chicagoland area.

Marvin is approximately 3 years old, mostly solid black with white chest male that came from a hoarding situation. He 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. Marvin seems to be somewhat outgoing considering his previous living situation and hopefully he will blossom quicker. He would probably do good in his new forever home by himself or another submissive dog that he wouldn’t be threatened by. He seems to be somewhat confident on his own. Due to the circumstances Marvin 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. Currently Marvin is in a foster home, so that he can get used to new sounds and activities that are in a home and enjoy the outside world. Marvin weighs approximately 35 lbs and has been neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccines. Marvin is working on crate training and potty training and doing great. Down the road we also feel Marvin would benefit from basic obedience training. We are also requiring a completely fenced in yard for his 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 four hours from the Chicagoland area.

Barney is about 3 years old! He is mostly black and white chest. Barney has come from a hoarding situation. He and 18 other whippets were all living together isolated from the normal outside world. These dogs unfortunately have never been properly socialized so it will take extra time, patience and understanding to be able to work with Barney on overcoming these areas. Barney has settled nicely in his foster homer is newly settling into his foster home and while he is still unsure of everything, he is starting to learn how to live in a normal home setting. Barney could probably adapt to his new life either alone or with another submissive dog…one that wouldn’t be a threat to him, but help build his confidence that he will need to thrive in his new home. Due to the circumstances, Barney needs a safe and structured home and it is felt that he would not be suitable with children under 10. Barney is very quiet, crate trained and potty trained. He is being slowly introduced to walking on a leash, but he still is unsure of new surroundings. We are hoping that soon he will learn that walks are also a good thing for him. He currently is living with some other male and female whippets, a chihuahua and even a cat….he doesn’t seem to mind any of them. His ideal forever home would need to understand that he needs tine and patience so that he could flourish …. and he certainly enjoys treats! A fenced yard is mandatory. 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.

Patrick is approximately 3 year old white whippet with some black markings male that came from a hoarding situation. He 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. Patrick seems to be a very laid back dog considering his previous living situation and hopefully he will adjust easily to a new home environment. He might do best in a home with at least one other dog to help him build the confidence that he will need to thrive in her new home. Due the circumstances Patrick 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. Currently Patrick is in boarding, but we will be moving her into a foster home where he will get acclimated in a true home type setting. Patrick weighs approximately 35 lbs and has been neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccines. Patrick will be working on crate training and potty training. Down the road we also feel Patrick would benefit from basic obedience training. We are also requiring a completely fenced in yard for his safety.

Ivy is young approximately 10 month old female white & Black Whippet that came from a hoarding situation. 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.
