Between 2003 and 2009 we bred three litters of Whippets, using only bitches between 2 and 8 years of age and dogs between 8 months and 8 years old, that were in good health with no known or suspected genetic defects and that achieved normal results on CERF (vision), BAER (hearing), cardiac and brucellosis tests, and (when this test became available) were DNA-tested for myostatin deficiency. We did not breed dogs or bitches that had parasites or communicable diseases, or that had previously produced unhealthy puppies or came from pedigrees known to frequently or consistently produce unhealthy puppies. We only bred Whippets that had stable, companionable temperaments . . . sound structure with no breed standard disqualifications . . . and appropriate sighthound prey drive and running abilities.
We no longer breed Whippets, but we are happy to help you find other reputable Whippet breeders who may have a nice Whippet adult or puppy for you.
