  1. Question of Whippet owners and those knowledgable

    General Dog Forum
    I'm aware of, but unfamiliar with the specifics of Whippets. A group of puppies here is for sale and I'm curious for some guidance from those who know the breed well. (Full disclosure: the puppies are 3/4s Whippet, 1/8 Catahoula, 1/8 Pharaoh. The father is full whippet.) Here is what I am...
  2. Is it true some dogs can never be off leash?

    General Dog Forum
    I have a 5 month on sighthound Whippet and had him since he was 7 weeks old. I first started off training with positive training and recall was great. As the months passed by, recall starting getting worse and worse... to the point where he barely listens. I tried other methods (ecollar with...
  3. 4 month old puppy with diarrhea

    Dog Food Forum
    My Whippet boy is 4 months old. He is currently on Acana Puppy & Junior, I would give him about 1 cup three times a day (morning, lunch, and dinner). I see different recommendations for how many cups a day he should receive, I was told a 4 month old whippet could eat up to 4 cups a day - but I...
  4. Mal & Pepper - Guess their breed!

    Dog Pictures Forum
    Hi guys! I have two sweet pups who's pictures I'd like to share. They are both mixes of some kind but I'm not sure exactly what. I was told Malcolm is a Blue Heeler mixed with a collie (can definitely see the heeler) and Pepper was said to be a Lab/Beagle mix, but I think she may be mixed with...
  5. Is this the breed for us - the whippet....

    General Dog Forum
    Hello! My first "real" thread. So I'm not a dog owner yet. I'm a stay at home mom to 3 kids (5, 3, and 1). We live in an apartment but will be moving someday to a house. At that time we will be getting a dog. If I can persuade the husband, I want 2 actually. I've done some research already and...
  6. A love story and major help needed

    Dog Training Forum
    A little over a year ago I rescued a beautiful whippet mix from a local organization. She was about 4 years old and had severe emotional issues. When I first met her and saw how timid she was I knew that I had to bring her home. When she first came she was heavily medicated and the long term...
  7. Puppy Ruptured Cruciate Ligament

    Dog Health Questions
    It turns out, what I thought had been an ongoing thing was a recent injury. Kidogo started limping on Wednesday night, so we brought him to the vet on Thursday and again on Friday for xrays and diagnosis. He has a partially ruptured cruciate ligament and because of that a meniscus injury...
  8. Not using left hind leg

    Dog Health Questions
    It started out as a goofy thing. My husband noticed that when Kidogo went down the stairs he only used three legs. But now it seems to have gotten a lot worse. Tonight, as Gogo was eating I noticed he was standing with his left leg barely touching the ground. I held it and it didn't bother him...
  9. When do puppies usually start eating less?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Kidogo is almost 5 months old, and we feed him Diamond Naturals puppy. We've been trying to feed him 2 cups a day but most days he eats a little bit less than that, as little as 1.3 cups a day. He is fed twice a day, anytime between 6:30-8:30, and another time between 4-7. When he eats less in...
  10. The Whippet Kidogo!

    Attention All New Members
    Kidogo is a beautiful 4 month old whippet puppy. He comes from a family of show-dogs but we are not planning to show him. He has been a wonderful addition to our newly-wed life. My husband had a childhood dog who passed away last year at 14, but this is my first dog, our first puppy. And it's...
  11. What type of Mix is she?? *PICS*

    General Dog Forum
    Help! What type of Mix is she?? *PICS* Please take a look and let me know what you think she is! We believe we have one part of the equation right in that she's half whippet. We're thinking this because of her spots, tail, small head compared to her body, how fast she is, and her...
  12. Hello DogForums

    Attention All New Members
    I signed up today after lurking for several days while my wife and I sought out a new dog to join our family. We both agreed that we wanted to rescue a young dog, and found a match with a private rescue after a few heart breaking visits to some New York City municipal kill-shelters. It was...
  13. Urgent help, lump on whippets nose!!

    Dog Health Questions
    Our Whippet has this large bump on his nose. (Refer to pics) We believe it is due to him attempting to chew on the fence a few days ago (due to thunder) but we are not sure. Some help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Peter
  14. What is my Pit Bull mixed with?

    General Dog Forum
    We adopted Dessa from the Humane society 11 months ago. At that time she was 2 months old and 10 pounds. We were told that she was a apbt. As she is getting older we believe that she may possibly be mixed with something else. She is now just over a year old, 60 pounds, very tall, and very lean...
  15. What's My Breed?

    Dog Pictures Forum
    Meet Barley - my new rescue dog. Some people say he looks like a pit bull mix but he is listed as a whippet/lab mix on his papers. What do you think? I think the whippet is likely due to his legs/feet/tail but I'm not sure. He's about 45 lbs fully grown. Do you see any other breeds in there? I...
