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.
