What a treat, we have never had a Whippet in our little foster program. What a beautiful dog. In researching this breed we found that they can be timid, she is not so bad but just a little. She was a stray and her weight really showed it. She is steadily gaining and such a good eater. She is also very chill in the house but runs like a gazel in the yard. She is super fantastic with other dogs and kids over 7 yrs. She has no real problems, being a little shy is not really a problem because she is very accepting of 'stranger love'. She is super nice dog.
