    I like whippets.
    I like rabbiting with dogs, im sure i could up my huntress success rate, with my hunting pack! from 3 in 5yrs if i had a whippet cross!

    when i master you tube i will show you this pup, she would get yr average up, built like a beefy whippet, good muzzle length, awesome rear assembly and rib cage somewhere between cylindrical and flat. i am really happy with her type in general altho i wanted a maximum 28kg adult, she is already 31kg, which sux a bit but her speed is still pretty dam good AND can change direction.

    the idea was a whippet that relies more on it's nose than it's eyes without spindly legs and paper thin skin, mostly achieved that.

    i kept her back cos i thought she had issues and will not let a dog with genetic issues go to anyone. i may re-home her to an awesome working home if she continues to improve.

    What did you cross with? A bull arab? 31kg is massive...

    And I suspect Whippets are tougher than you think and will corner better and use their back end if you teach them that they have one. Eg "back end awareness exercises".

    I use photobucket Photo and image hosting for video sharing. It seems reasonably easy to me, tho it can be hard to tell when you have gotten a video uploaded. I've uploaded a few things twice twice cos I didn't realise it was done already.

    I love whippets too. At 31 kg and 7 months old, she's only a couple of kgs lighter than my 10 month old mastiff cross

    I also would love to know what you crossed her with.

    vet weighed her, she does not look it imo, very narrow dog and not that tall (i will measure height) quiet a long barrel dog tho. absolutely definately no mastiff/molloser/bull breeds in my dogs. unless gsp is a molloser??


    when you guys ask what did i cross her with, it is not like i took purbred A and purebred B to make composite dog C.

    the above listed breeds are excluded, big doses of gsp/whippet.
