    :) Hi all, i had a call from a lady today, she was looking for a blue whippet pup for her vet.

    Anyway we got chatting, and she was talking about a whippet in a pound near her home whitch i think is london, because her phone number started with 0208.

    This male whippet was handed in about 3 months ago :( with all papers.

    The owners said they could not keep him because they had developed an alergy to the dog.

    Why haven't they contacted the breeder of this dog?

    The lady knows all this because her husband goes and walks him as often as he can, but they can't give him a home as they already have 1 whippet and 2 rescue greyhounds.

    Ive been trying to call this lady back to find out more, but can't get a reply yet i will keep trying.

    I realy want to get this dog a proper home but ive not done this before :(

    I will post again maybe someone on here knows of someone who wants to give a home to a lonely boy :(

    Poor lad!!!!

    It would be a good idea to phone whippet rescue when you find ut which pound he is in. ( number top of this forum board).

    :) Progress already, he is at a sanctury in Cranham in Essex 20 minutes up the road from me.

    The lady who runs this is very protective over the dogs she vets all homes, which is a goog thing.

    The whippet is about 1 year old he is a fawn and his name is sandy :wub:

    fully house trained and a o:)

    I will ring whippet rescue tomorrow, but first i have to get the sanctury phone number or address.

    Barbra the lady iv'e just spoken to is going to ring me tomorrow, fingers crossed

    for little sandy :huggles:

    Well done for finding out about him. :thumbsup:

    Doesn't it seem a long time for a young healthy pedigree Whippet to be waiting.

    I'd have thought he would have been snapped up long ago.

    :luck: Hope he's rehomed soon.

    :) News on Sandy, the lady who owns the sancturey has agreed for me to put her name and phone number on here.

    And also Maureen Blanks is going threw her paper work, on some people looking for an older whippy. Fingers crossed.

    I can now go ahead and phone the whippet rescue :thumbsup:

    If anyone is interested in this little boy please ring.01708 220168.

    Mrs Frankie Wagstaff.

    Cranham, Essex.
