ADOPTED ON 02-03-15 – Faith is a very sweet girl and enjoys the company of other dogs. She will go outside and run fast and furious with her canine companions, and then come in the house and veg out. Her foster mom says she does very well in the house with the other dogs and explores things quietly at her own pace. She enjoys snuggling inside of blankets, as whippets have a very short dense coat and are easily affected by the cold. Faith loves to walk on leash and is very proud of her loose leash walking skills, she prances down the street with grace and ease. Whippets are an extremely sensitive breed both physically and mentally, thus she does not like harsh corrections or yelling.
Faiths northern foster has not had her in the car, but her southern foster said she did just fine in the vehicle. She is house trained, but if something scares her she will pee a little. She does very well with people of all sizes. She is excellent in the crate, and prefers the hard sided crates as they make her feel secure. She will play for long stretches with any big or little dog at my house. Whippets are non-barking dogs, this must be true because her foster mom has never heard her bark.
Faith loves children and will probably sleep with one of the children if possible. She needs a sufficient amount of exercise and she will do well with someone who likes to run and will take her with them. She will also do well playing and being dressed up by children. She will make an excellent family dog. She does not shed and is non-allergic. Faith is a quiet sole, very regal and quiet.
The ideal home for Faith would be one where her new family would be willing to provide her with long walks or runs in order to meet her exercise needs, and afterwards she could snuggle up on the couch for evening TV. Faith would love for her new home to include another dog or dogs to play with and keep her company. This girl is not picky she will play with anyone large or small. Faith would do well in a home with children as well, whippets are known for being extremely patient with children. These dogs are quiet, obedient and loyal. If you think Faith sounds like the right match for you please fill out an adoption application.

- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
- Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
- No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
- Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.

- Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
