Abby's Story...
Hi there! My name is Abby, and I’m a little shy when it comes to having my photo taken. My pictures really don’t do me justice, so you must stop by and meet me in person! I am a 5 year old Whippet mix and was surrendered in mid-November because my human dad was allergic to me. I lived happily with my mom, dad, & human siblings who were 11 & 9 years old. I was adopted just a couple weeks after being surrendered, but was returned in mid- February due to separation anxiety. I made messes in the house if I wasn’t crated when my family left me. I AM housetrained, but I got into such a panic thinking that my family would never come back to me… that I had accidents. I was adopted again in late March, but returned just a couple days later. I know I can work to overcome my fears if I could just find the right person willing to take a chance on me. I really need a stable family who will give me some time to work through my anxieties. I miss having a family and would very much like to become a beloved member of YOUR family! I am a petite 25 pounds of excitable enthusiasm, and I am so much fun! I was a home-body and didn’t really go many places; I just really enjoyed being home with my family. I know there is a great family out there who are looking for a dog exactly like me… so look no further!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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