My name is Coba! I am a 4-year-old and 27-pound Whippet-mix. I am new to my foster mom and she said I definitely have a lot of Whippet tendencies like lounging on the couch with her and just hanging out. But don’t let me fool you as I am always on the look out for activity that I could get involved in. My mom says sometimes I can be very intense and on a mission….yes sometimes this could get me in trouble. I love to go for walks, but I really need obedience training since I am so curious about my surroundings and pull a lot. I love my toys, but I don’t give them up very easy so I probably would should be with older kids. Ideally, a home that wanted a jogging partner….or someone that is going to keep me busy would be the best. I lived with another dog and enjoy my mom’s resident dogs but I could do just fine as the only dog as I am a dominant male.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barrington 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 Barrington 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 Barrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
