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. Please note at this time we are only considering homes that are no more than four hours from the Chicagoland area
