Thank you Beloz for alerting me to the Whippet in the ACT Pound. I've now learned that despite me having my name down as the clubs rescue delegate next to any and all Whippets in pounds all around the state that this particular pound won't notify me due to numbers of dogs thru the pound, which I guess is understandable.
This little guy is going to his new home tomorrow which is great news. And from your contacting me I've learned something today that will assist other Whippets in the future - and that is keep trolling all the pounds.
If anyone would be interested in being a foster carer for a Whippet I would love to hear from you.
