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.
  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
  • 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 should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
  • Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOG

PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO CHECK OUT THE SECTION BELOW

RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
