Will let you know, Helen, if I hear anything about the whippet. Been getting updates but no sightings yet. It probably means that someone has taken her in.

The great news coming out of Westminster is that the win by Rufus is getting GREAT press coverage about the fact that he would be confiscated and euthanized in many parts of the country. This is accompanied by photos of him with kids, drinking at Sardis, etc., etc. which shows how totally unthreatening he is. It will do much to dispell the notion that pit bulls and anything related to them are, by birth, dangerous and maybe change the focus to the fact that it is the OWNERS of dangerous dogs that cause the problem, not the breed of dog.

My mum wants a whippet she was reading that they make the most affectionate loving pets. I never expected them to have this temperament at all?
Does anyone have any info on this?

Sighthounds, despite their aloof appearance, are incredibly affectionate with their family but they tend not to trust strangers (probably from their nomadic desert heritage.)

Whippets are the most out-going of sighthound breeds but, since they have some terrier in them, are more hyper than other sighthounds, but the upside is that they are easier to train.

Will be happy to provide any sighthound advice. Have her e-mail me privately if she has any questions. I'm also hooked up with lists all over so could probably find her a really good dog if she decides to get a whippet.

kazzzz, I know saluki people in Australia and they will know who there has the best whippets. In fact, the co-owner/co-breeder of my dogs will be going soon to judge some shows in Australia. She can get good info for you but let me talk to your mother first so we can find out what she really wants in a dog so we can put her in touch with someone who will have a dog that will work the best for her. e-mail me at [email protected]
