Desmo 9 yr old Male, he is a very sweet and kind older male. Both rear legs have had an ACL surgery, but that doesn’t stop him from running or jumping. He does a couple of cute tricks and prefers to be with humans all the time but accepts new dogs just fine. He is also okay with cats. Dez does have some separation anxiety which we have been working on, and it is better.

He needs a quiet home to call his own with dog parents who are home most of the time preferably working from home or retired. He loves going on leash walks and would prefer that instead of just a yard. 6ft fence is required.

Willy is looking for a home without cats or young children, and with at least one other dog to keep him company. This big boy is loving and easy going, and would love to find a home with a retired couple or someone who is home more often than not.

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.

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.

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.

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. 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.
