We are located in the East Texas Pineywoods, and are very convenient to Dallas, Houston, and Shreveport.

I have owned, shown, bred, and enjoyed living with Whippets since 1970. My first whippet named Susy, literally attended some of my classes at the University of Arizona. It's not that hard to hide a whippet when you are in a chemistry class of over 1000, and you sit close to the back of the auditorium. I believe whippets to be one of the "Best Kept Secrets" of dog breeds.

Asthetically they are unique, sleek, elegant, and built for speed. They blend into most family situations well, as they are always keen to join in on any activity, and equally excited about taking a nap with you. They tend to be laid back, and easy to live with, yet quite alert, and some are even pretty top notch watch dogs. The most endearing trait of a whippet is their desire to bond and become your closest friend, and soul partner.

As a breeder I place temperament and liveability above all else when I breed a litter of pups. After that comes health and then beauty and soundness. I am always looking for the next lovely one to take to the show ring, but of course, in a typical litter, there will some pups that do not have the desire, or exactly what they may be looking for in the show ring, so those whippets can make wonderful companions and sometimes performance dogs or therapy dogs. Feel free to browse the site to see more about our foundation, current whippet residents and our available whippets. We welcome visitors and are always happy to assist with any whippet or dog related questions. Thanks for visiting Whisperun.
Whisperun is also the home of homebred Champion Italian Greyhounds and also Standard Poodles. These breeds both blend in well to a household of whippets. Just like one's own children, each one is special in their own ways. Please visit whisperunitaliangreyhounds.com or whisperunpoodles.com to learn more about our involvement in those breeds.

We HIGHLY recommend NuVet for the health and longevity of your dog.

Healthy and Sweet Puppy

We picked up our boy Tethers early this year, and we have been absolutely thrilled with what an amazing and sweet boy he's grown into. His temperament is fantastic -- very biddable and playful, and quiet too. We get nothing but compliments on how gorgeous he is, and how loving.

Handsome Little Whippet Pup

We are so thrilled with the newest member of our family, our handsome little whippet pup named Bolt! Yes, after the Disney movie the kids love so much and I have to say it is a fitting name for our little speed demon. Several months after losing our sweet little Iggy Sparky, we knew it was time to find a new member for our family. Jolene was wonderful every step of the way and patiently answered all of our questions as we carefully searched for our new pet. We finally knew that a Whisperun Whippet would be the perfect addition and instantly fell in love with the gorgeous little puppy who greeted us at the door. Bolt has the sweetest personality and plenty of that puppy energy that keeps us all entertained. We often have the neighborhood kids hanging out at our house and Bolt always welcomes them with tail wagging and doggy kisses. I highly recommend Whisperun Whippets!

Awesome couch buddy

Early this year we picked up our first ever Whippet from Whisperun and he is truly an awesome companion. Smart, almost too smart, and always eager to please. He has taken a liking to the couch and spends most of his day sleeping there, then its off to the park to show off his speed to others. Great dog, great companion, and a great place to get a Whippet.

Truly Golden

In 2011, I purchased my first Whippet from Whisperun. His name was Yukon Gold, but we call him Denali, or Dino. Let me tell you - he is such a wonderful dog! I am so happy that he is part of the family. I hope that in the future, I can have another Whippet from the Whisperun foundation; they are truly delightful Whippets.
