I've already contacted the owners, with the offer of assistance or to bring him into our care.

ETA: that is a Whippet not an Italian Greyhound

Good one ! :thumbsup:

I guess the other side of Registered Breeders and their prices comes down to getting back what they put in financially let alone their time which can be immense.

Sure some do it for a small loss, but i'd still expect the majority of breeders to want to break even on their outlay unless they are lotto winners. As i'd hope one of their main reasons for breeding is the betterment of the breed, profit being minuscule or not even thought of.

So when you figure the costs involved for a litter of pups over anything from 10weeks to 16weeks (depending when they are comfortable to let them go), food, stimulation, collars, any stud fee's, vet checks of the parents, vet bills, emergency births, as well as the standard, registration, papers etc. You can see why the price can vary, and I'm sure of forgotten many things not being a breeder myself.

As said go see the dogs, their environment and talk with the breeder and if possible your states whippet club about them. Alot can't be said publicly of peoples personal opinions or experiences. On the phone etc, you may learn more.

Best of luck.

Yeah my heart's in my mouth sometimes, but 9 times out of 10 they just pick themselves up and run off again. There's risks with anything I suppose, but luckily whippets are tougher than they look.

Hello team .... Is some here the owner of whippet wear? Or know who is? I've just put an order in and need to change the address .

Ta

Her name's Melle Whiting and I no longer have her phone number, you need to contact her via her email address on the site. There would be a few people here who know her, Sarsanet might have her number.

TA...

Thanks. The coat arrived today

The full results will be posted after the show. It's a very big weekend for the organisers, officials and exhibitors, so it's a bit of a case of take what you can get at the moment

Bestie got his puppy last night - thank you so much murve for making his first puppy experience so excellent! We're sooo in love with Arrow. SERIOUSLY LOOK AT HIM HE'S SO BEAUTIFUL. He's such a snuggle bum and so calm for such a young dog - unlike my cray cray Papillon! Can't wait to start showing him :D

Hi guys, yes our little Arrow is one of our babies :D he is out of Darcie (Ozrhode Celtic Sands) & by who else but the one & only COOPER ( Sup Ch. Peperone New Sensation), Orlando's litter brother. Arrow siblings Silva & Princess will be making their debut competing at West Gippsland double Champ show on the 7th June Goldie will also come along for the outing.
