Grayson's Story...
Adopted 3/14/2015

Fostered in SA Area

Let me introduce you to a VERY handsome whippet boy. Grayson is 5 years old. He is white with fawn brindle markings. Up-to-date on all his vaccines & neutered. He has pawesome house manners. He will ring the poochie bells to alert you of his potty needs. 

In Grayson's own words. I am a lover. I give tons of kisses. I sit like I'm posing for a statue on command & will also shake your hand like a true gentleman. I love everyone - well at least humans. 

I was a solo act for 5 years so I'm still learning how to be part of a pack. I sometimes try to join in the fun but most times I get a bit scared of it. Because of being a solo act and being crated a lot - I have some issues with separation anxiety. For that reason I would prefer to not be any only dog and have pet parents that aren't gone all day long. I am finally realizing that being crated for a few hours is not all that bad. 

I love to play ball once I get comfortable with my surroundings. Once my leash comes out I get excited for walks and/or car rides. I'm still pulling my leash on walks - but Mom feels I'm getting better each day. I love going to the park too! Since I'm not a big fan of my crate my foster Mom lets me sleep in my dog bed on the floor on her side of the bed. I'm so relieved that I lay down and get covered up with my favorite blanket & off to sleep I go!

I'm such a handsome and good boy - you will wonder how you ever lived without me. Foster Mom tells me all the time how wonderful I am!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Grayson, a Richardson Whippet dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Whippet for sale in Richardson, or seeking a Whippet dog from a breeder in Richardson.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richardson already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Richardson breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Whippet breeders who help with Whippet rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richardson paves the way for another one to be saved.
