Hiya smile I've been reading about whippets for a while now and they seem to be pretty great dogs big grin I am actually considering maybe rescuing one in the far future but before I do I want to know all about the breed. Do you all have lots of problems with their prey drive? I do understand that they CAN'T be left offleash and I don't plan on it but how many of your whippets HAVE escaped? Is there anything I should know about these dogs? Does your whippet do flyball/agility?
