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. Nathan is working on crate training and potty training and doing great. Down the road we also feel Nathan 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.

An adoption application is REQUIRED to be submitted before you contact a WRAP foster volunteer about this rescue or others currently available for adoption. Please submit an application.

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.

Nellie was a owner surrender to IG rescue. Coming to me at only 16lbs her future looked very bleak. But with her huge will to live she has continued to surprise me and improve. Nellie is special needs. She is 13 plus years and is deaf. But she is so sweet, perfectly housebroken. Nellie needs a loving home that realizes she is in her golden years. She needs small more frequent meals. She just wants a comfy couch to live out her life. She needs a fenced yard since she is deaf. She gets along with all people and dogs. She needs a quiet hearing dog that can lead her in the right direction.

Although she may not have a long life ahead of her she is sweet, unassuming, and easy to live with. If you can open your heart and home to Nellie please let me know.

Harley is Available for Adoption, 11 Year Old Female, Jacksonville Florida

Name of Whippet, Location: Harley is Available for Adoption, 11 Year Old Female, Jacksonville Florida
Location Category: Florida
Name of foster volunteer: Maggie Peterson
Email: maggiejane53@gmail.com     Phone: 9042345404
Address: Jacksonville, Florida

Harley is a beautiful 11-12 yo petite female looking for her furever home through no fault of her own. She is very calm and quiet in the house, likes to lounge around all day long, and will sleep in your bed at night. She would like to keep her whippety figure in her senior years, so she enjoys her daily walks and exploring the backyard. She is very sweet, loves lots of attention and will give you plenty of kisses…on her terms! A “chatty” girl, she will announce her presence with a bark if she sees a dog out the window or to greet a human visitor. She had a recent checkup at the vet and is in great health.

Harley and her foster brother get a long fine, but she prefers not to share her food or space with other dogs and she will sometimes let them know with a warning grumble or bark but she is not aggressive. She is not crate trained but as an only dog she doesn’t need to be crated, she is very respectful of her environment. She is very healthy and rides well in the car.

Harley would do well as a single dog in a home with someone home all day to give her the love and attention she deserves to live out the rest of her senior years. She has not been cat or kid tested and probably wouldn’t enjoy an active home environment.

If you’re interested in this lovely gal and you’re within reasonable driving distance to Jacksonville, FL please complete an application and feel free to drop her foster mom a note. Maggie Peterson maggiejane53@gmail.com.

Barney is at a good younger age of 3! 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 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 appears to be potty trained. He will soon 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. and his potty training and crate training. Even though Barney is slightly older, basic obedience training might be good for him to help him flourish in his new home. But he does need time to understand his new lifestyle. 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.

Address: Kansas City MO

Quinten is around three years old. He is a big boy that loves to play. A fenced yard is a must as he came from a hoarding situation and could be a possible flight risk. Right now he is afraid of strangers, as he had never seen anyone before but his current owner, but once he gets to know you he is a big goofy boy that loves attention. Quinten will need lots of patience and training as he has never been taught anything but seems eager to learn. He is crate trained and doing great with house breaking too. He needs a quiet home to thrive in. He will be fine with a similar size friend but no small dogs or cats. If you think this boy might be a good fit for your lifestyle, please contact me and let’s arrange a meet and greet.

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.

Nathan is approximately 2-3 year old 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. Nathan seems to be somewhat outgoing considering his previous living situation and hopefully he will blossom quicker. He will probably do best as an only dog, or with another dog that is submissive. He can be dog reactive. Due to the circumstances Nathan 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 Nathan is in boarding, until a foster home is available so that he can start to learn his manners and boundaries. It is with hopes that he will get acclimated in a true home type setting. Nathan weighs approximately 40 lbs and has been neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccines. Nathan is potty trained and working on crate training. It would benefit Nathan to continue with obedience to help him overcome his past history and habits. Nathan might do best as an only dog or with a submissive dog.
