Greetings from Minnie

Whippet, 3 years old

🌳 Countryside dog
🍷 Lives with adults only

My favourite thing about Minnie is...

She’s very affectionate and gentle, has been no bother, was house trained in a week. She sleeps a lot, loves being in her cosy dog bed with a blanket, and just needs 2 walks a day. She’s quite playful and literally loves everyone.

The biggest challenge with Minnie is...

when a puppy she always wanted to play, and would run after the brush when sweeping the yard.

The most surprising thing about owning a Whippet is...

They are very gentle and don’t need a lot of grooming. A lot of people say they are hard work but we are in our 70s and have not found this. They are quite content with just 2 walks a day then they sleep a lot. It’s hard to get them out of their bed before dinnertime.

What I wish I’d known about Whippets is...

I researched the breed before we committed ourselves, so knew pretty much all about them. Our breeder didn’t let them go til they were 3 months and socialised. So secret is get a reputable breeder, if getting a pup.

Did you know?

Whippets are super quiet dogs and some owners say theirs doesn’t ever bark!
