A couple of great dogs looking for homes

UPDATE: Thank you for your interest! These whippets have all been placed with families. Visit our website to find out more about our puppies or submit a questionnaire to start a conversation with us about our whippets.

We have a couple of boys here available to special homes.


Pepper is a gorgeous brindle and white boy, two years old, who just wants love. We are helping his owner rehome him due to some catastrophic personal events. Pepper is housetrained, leash trained, trained to use a dog door, and good with other dogs. He will stay in a crate (though not too happily), but left loose in the house has not been destructive at all. 

We didn't breed him -- we just happened to be in the right place at the right time to help him out.

Pepper is a little anxious and really wants to be with you -- touching you! -- all the time. He needs a home with:
-- an owner who is home most of every day
-- another whippet
-- someone who has lots of love to give him,
-- a home where there are not too many surprises and things are on an even keel.

There is nothing he loves better than to snuggle up next to you on the couch while you read or watch TV.

Some of the anxiety will probably ease as he gets comfortable in his new home.He has had a confusing couple of weeks.

Pepper is neutered and AKC registered. I'll get some better pictures in the next day or two.


Dashiell is a three-month-old Cirpet (cross between whippet and Cirneco dell'Etna - see earlier posts). He is a typical, rowdy little boy, quick to learn and mostly cooperative. He's three quarters of the way to housetrained and 100 percent paper trained. We're working on leash and crate training!

He seems to have more whippet qualities than Cirneco at this point and looks pretty much like a purebred black whippet. He will probably mature out to about whippet size or a bit smaller.

Dashiell would make a wonderful dog for someone with an active lifestyle. He'd be thrilled to live with a runner or someone interested in agility, flyball, obedience, etc. Or he'd be fine in a less active household if he had another dog to play with an a fenced yard. He is energetic, but not Jack Russell energetic, if you know what I mean.

Both of these dogs come with the Timbreblue "lifetime takeback" guarantee -- they can come back at any time in their lives if life doesn't go as planned for the owner. You also get a lifetime of support with any problems or questions; a bag of books, chewies, treats, toys, and other stuff; an invitation to the Timbreblue reunion every October; and support and encouragement from the ever wonderful Timbreblue family of owners.

Dashiell and Pepper have been vet checked and are healthy, up to date on all vaccinations, and microchipped.

I would love to get these boys into their new homes within the next week or so. If you are interested, fill out our questionnaire (under contact us at and then drop me a note or call me at 540-464-8046 and we'll talk!
