Hello … I am Pip, mostly white with a few black patches and I am looking for a family to call his own. I am 1.5 years old and will be 2 years in September 2021. Pip has come to us from a not such a good environment…but his scars are deep and he needs a lot of additional patience and understanding. He has been in his foster home for about three weeks, completely vetted and neutered and heartworm negative. He has slowly started to acclimate in his foster home. He has started to show more of his adorable personality every day! He seems to love everyone he meets, and he gets along well with other dogs that he is currently residing with and yes even a cat! Though we would not recommend leaving any whippets unsupervised with a cat, but for the most part he appears to be cat friendly. We are working on his crate training, but he seems to have such high anxiety that crate training is going slowly. He is your absolute velcro whippet and he will need a home that is truly understanding of his needs. Foster mom is working with him in several areas to help him overcome some of his fears and stressers. He does need basic obedience to help him with his manners. Pip’s favorites things are to stay very close to his foster mom, he does like to have some play time with the other resident dogs which consists of a smaller dog and the resident whippets and of course couch time! He is very food motivated so we are trying to work with him on that and his anxiety. Since he does have anxiety, he will need to be placed in a home where someone is home most of the time, he will not be able to be adopted into a multi living situation like an apartment or condo…single family home for Pip is mandatory. He would do fine as an only dog or with another 4 legged companion mostly for Pip is the security of a human. Pip needs to be in a home with a fenced in yard. You must be within driving distance to his foster home in the Chicagoland area. You must submit an application for further consideration for Pip. His foster mom will be in touch with you if she feels you are a good match for Pip.

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. 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.

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. With Ivy being on the younger side she will hopefully blossom quicker. She will do best in a home with at least one other dog to help her build the confidence that she will need to thrive in her new home. Due the circumstances Ivy 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. Ivy is now in a foster home where she will get acclimated in a true home type setting. Ivy weights approximately 25 lbs and has been spayed, microchipped and up to date on her vaccines. Ivy has mastered her crate training and potty training. Down the road we also feel Ivy would benefit from basic obedience training. We are also requiring a completely fenced in yard for her safety.
