Shelby's Story...
Shelby was originally found as a stray in Lake County and the vet estimates her to be 6/7month old, she is currently 25lbs and isn’t expected to get much larger.
Shelby has the sweetest personality, affectionate, can be sensitive to noise and chaos and remains calm/docile while indoors. She likes to stay close and will spend most of her day curled up on the couch when indoors.
When she is outdoors, she has a lot of energy, she needs regular opportunities to run free on open ground and a brisk daily walk on a leash is also needed.
She is intelligent, and a quick learner. She’s currently in the process of crate and house training, learning to walk on a leash and is working on her “manners”
She is current on all her shots/vaccines and HW preventative, micro-chipped and spayed.
*Hair loss occurred before she was rescued; the vet feels that malnutrition was the underlying cause, and has been given a clean bill of health and her hair growing back nicely.
No exposure to cats yet, but seems to get along well with other dogs of all sizes**

According to www.dogbreedinfo.com
“The Whippet is intelligent, lively, affectionate, sweet, and docile. This very devoted companion is quiet and calm in the home. The Whippet's sweet personality makes a fine companion dog.
This breed should never be roughly trained, for they are extremely sensitive both physically and mentally.
They are good with children of all ages as long as the children do not roughhouse or tease the dog.
Whippets are clean, virtually odor free, easy to care for and easy to travel with. They are good watchdogs and may be reserved with strangers.
** Household cats that they are raised with and have become accustom to will be left alone however they could pursue and kill cats and other small animals if given the opportunity, but are good with other dogs.”

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shelby, a Dundee Whippet/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Whippet/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Dundee, or seeking a Whippet/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) puppy from a breeder in Dundee.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Dundee 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 Dundee 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Whippet/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Dundee paves the way for another one to be saved.
