Hi! I'm Patches! I'm 3 y/o and 35 lbs. I was rescued from Polk County Animal Control. I am currently in foster care. My foster mom says that I am the fastest dog she has ever seen. She thinks I'm part whippet and in some cases whippets are even faster than greyhounds. I love to go for runs and she even takes me on her rollerblades so I can go twice as fast. While I have a lot of energy outside, I like to be a couch potato inside. I am a little cuddle bug. I sleep with my foster daddy at night. I have never once had an accident in the house. I am a clean dog! The downside to me is that you can't own any cats. Whippets were bred for hunting rabbits and other game. Absolutely NO CATS for me. I need to be your only dog. No children. I also need to wear a halter that I can't back out of. And your fenced in area has to be very secure. (8 ft tall). Must be active person willing to exercise her every day! Please ask to come meet me in my foster home. I am waiting! Adoption fee includes spay, up-to-date vaccines, and microchip.
