  1. Dog Breeds
    Molly wandered up as an abused stray/abandoned pupper. She's around 40lbs and has the typical beagle pattern as well as black and tan freckles on all her white fur. She's a talkative handsy little girl that will chase anything small or quick, and she is fast. Like super fast. She's just as agile...

    Hello! I'm curious if anyone has any information on a strange rash I have noticed on my whippet a couple different times. The rash is deep red with some scaling. He does not seem to be in pain but the rash does concern me. Thanks for any help.
  4. Puppy Help
    Hello, I am really struggling with my 9 week old whippet (yes i have been naive in how easy this puppy thing was going to be) but i do want to make sure I am doing all the right things...

  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi. We have a 13 week old whippet puppy, Truffles. We are training him to use pee pads in the guest bathroom for his business. The problem is that if he poops there and we don't pick it up within like 2 minutes, he decides to tear the puppy pad out of the shower and he pees like 2 feet away...

    I decided since I was part of bird and rat forums I should come here since I'm mother to two amazing dogs. They're mother and daughter. Nitrous is my Whippet / Shepherd Lab (3rd gen.) who is quirky and lively for a 5 1/2 year old! She's a chocolate colour with shepherd and lab markings and a...

    Our Whippet has this large bump on his nose. (Refer to pics) We believe it is due to him attempting to jump the fence a few days ago (due to thunder) but we are not sure. Some help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Peter

    I don't know dog breeds all that well yet, except for very common breeds. So I spent some time online trying to figure these out. For the beauty on the left I came up with Old Time Farm Shepherd (or English Shepherd). For the dainty on the right, I'm pretty sure Whippet (or Greyhound). Either...
  10. Dog News
    Just been reading that the 'whippet' is the most expensive dog to keep. Which is quite a shame because I've always loved them, ever since I was younger. My grandad used to keep them, for racing I presume and we used to get to play with them in the garden whenever we visited. I had hoped to get...
