Default Whippet/Terrier Cross

Hi,

Just wondered if anybody has any experience with these dogs? I've been googling all over and cant really find out... How big are they?!

The one im looking at for rescue looks massive? Too big to live with Honey (she doesnt like most big dogs at the moment)?

Whippets are about 20 inches at the shoulder. Very nice dogs. Not barkers. At her age she would be ideal---over the puppy stage. The middle of the greyhound sight hounds. 1.Italian greyhound 14-15 inches 2. Whippet 3 The big grey.

Not too familiar with the breed, but gosh she's pretty! She looks very elegant even if she doesn't appear thrilled in the pic haha. Her description is really great, too; even if she is on the larger side she sounds like she'd be a gentle giant! Keep us posted when you hear from them! To prepare Honey, I found a helpful article too on Animal Planet's website.

I think it's cute how most of the pictures are Chihuahuas haha. Some of the tips can be practiced with Honey before she'd even meet Bella which could help ease any tension. =) Good luck and let us know if you get the beauty!!

You can tell by her eyes she's been there, and she's a wise, sweet girl.
Keep us posted.

Wow, she's a beautiful girl. I have a soft spot for terrier mixes and I love the grey/whippet body! I think that would be such a nice mix because you could potentially get the "laziness" of the whippet and the personality of the terrier all in one gorgeous dog!
