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.

We adopted(purchased) our sweet Sophie from Ms. Davis in November 2014. She is our first Whippet child. She is extremely lovable and is so very intelligent. We show her off every chance we get. She has a champion spirit. Sophie is the best Whippet ever because of Ms. Davis' expertise and breeding. Thank you Ms. Davis. We look forward to showing Sophie and earning her Champion status.
My first whippet was 11 years ago, his name was Atticus. He was 8 weeks old when I picked him up from Jolene and we were inseparable. In May 2015, I met with Jolene to pick up my sweet Zeppelin and I couldn't be more pleased. Jolene is a wonderful breeder of whippets. She cares so much for her animals and gives such valuable advice. I'm looking forward to purchasing another whippet in the future so that Zeppelin will have a friend to play with. Be sure that I'm going to come to Jolene's Whisperun when I do.
When we were looking for a second dog (we have a labrador) we came across the whippet breed. We were unfamiliar with them, but after researching the breed and talking to Jolene we decided that a whippet would be the perfect fit for our family.
Our whippet girl is now 5 months old and we couldn't be more pleased with her. She is SO sweet and loving and such a character. Super smart and easy to train. Everyone who sees her comments on how beautiful her markings are and falls in love with her sweet personality. I have a feeling that another whippet is in our future :) Awesome breed and I recommend Whisperun Whippets.
We got our whippet puppy Stetson last October. He is the most well mannered pup. We have not had any health issues. He is perfect. We have him in obedience classes and of course he is the star performer. He is so smart - great problem solver. We couldn't be happier with our purchase. Jolene was great to work with and answered all our questions. We would definitely get another pup from Jolene without any reservations. Highly recommend.
I have never owned a whippet and have fallen for the breed since I got Chrome Legend from Jolene Davis of Whisperun. Zeke has an amazing personality and is so smart and trainable. He is going to be a wonderful companion, already showing much loyalty. He doesn't want me out of his sight.
Jolene was so patient with me when I finally committed. I had to drive a long ways. She was great to do business with
