    Default Rescue Whippets in need of homes

    Please spread the word. There are 4 Whippets in desperate need of new homes.


    Zoltan is a beautiful blue male Whippet who's reason for surrender to Wyong pound was he's storm phobic. He's currently in foster care and has proven to also have separation anxiety and has been found waiting outside the front door for his foster carers return home. He was already de-sexed, is house trained, walks on a lead nicely and is fine with other dogs but does prefer them to be quiet and well behaved like he is or it worries him. He will need a special home where he can be contained if his owners go out. Zoltan is about 2yo.

    There is also two brindle girls (probably sisters), again they are quiet, well behaved, walk nicely on a lead, non reactive to other dogs. They are in rescue at the moment but really need a place to call their own and stretch their legs. The rescue would like them to go together.

    Finally there are two boys at the same rescue. All were in Blacktown Pound and I'd say come from BYB's. One boy is an attractive red/fawn with white trim in good condition, he likes toys, and like most Whippets walks well on a lead and is not reactive when walked past all the other dogs in the rescue to get to the exercise yards.

    Then there is a tiny little guy, a real sweetie but not well bred, his rear action is very stiff but it doesn't stop him from being friendly. Unlike the others he's not coping being in the rescue kennels and is not eating and is losing weight and condition. He is small for a Whippet, particularly a male. He's fawn brindle and white.

    If anyone would like further information on the Whippets please contact me via PM.

    Is this in Sydney?
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    Zolton is on the Central Coast north of Sydney
    The others are in Sydney at a rescue out near Penrith.

    I haven't met Zoltan but have met the other four and they are all nice dogs.

    Are the whippets still available? Would be interested but I live in Adelaide. Have had both whippets and greyhounds in the past. No dogs presently but I have two ducks so not sure if this would be a problem. What ages are they? Thanks

    An update on the Whippets in need of homes.

    Zoltan found his forever home and is living the good life.

    The two girls Chanel and Coco are still in rescue and so are the two boys Mambo and Tango (names given to them by the rescue). I have met these four and all are very nice. The two boys have totally different energy levels and I've convinced the rescue that they no longer need to go as a pair but the rescue would like the suspected litter sisters to go together. If you would like the rescues details please PM me.

    There is also two others (a dog and a bitch) who have been fostered by a registered breeder of Whippets and Borzoi.

    All range in age from 2 - 5. We only have a detailed background on one of the dogs (5yo male who has been taken in by registered breeder), the others have all been rescued from pounds.

    Home inspections are a requirement.
