Dexter is a beautiful and gentle ten-year-old male red and white Whippet. He is currently being fostered in the in the Eagle Idaho area. He has two other whippets to run around with and has adjusted to even the 16 month old hell raiser. He’s still adjusting but has been the most perfect house guest!
Dexter is completely house-trained, a fabulous leash walker, and knows the commands to come and sit. Dexter loves to play and run with the other Whippets. Most of the time, though, you’ll find him lounging on the couch, on the back patio or his bed, which strongly resembles my bed.
Dexter is neutered, is up to date on all vaccines and heartworm prevention. He is a Whippet with the obligatory Whippet prey drive so should be watched around cats or similar prey animals and have an adequately fenced area to run in. I do not recommend a dog park at this time because he does get quite anxious when two dogs are playing and wrestling about. He likes a quiet and calm environment like most of us when we get older.
