Yorkshire is quite the lovely place, filled with breathtaking scenes and great walks. It’s no surprise that the county is one of the most friendly to whippets.
If you’re looking to acquire a whippet, whether male or female, a whippet rescue centre is the best place to begin your search.
Whippets in Yorkshire can be easily adopted from dog rescue centres across the region.
However, getting a whippet directly from a trusted rescue centre means acquiring a rehabilitated dog that is in good health and has some training.
So you are going to want to make sure you only go through reputable channels.
