Best keep off them sites then bit of homework req beforehand helps before money as the saying goes “ fools rush in “ that’s wat the breeding sites require 

I'm in no rush mate, just having a look at a few options for the next year or so. You're right though, I've got a lot of homework to do haha

Il start.. 2 year old. Bred from worker to worker, mostly ferreting, lamping mooching dogs, 21" pics have been put up before.

My whippets. Dam and son                  

Hopefully these few old pictures and some of recollections from my early teens (the late 1950’s and early 1960’s) may be of some interest. They’re all old style “rag whippets” and pre date the require

I would think some racing ones must fail to make the grade, and can be got hold of cheep for working.

Agree  but the stigma of must be “working bred “ puts people off   , I don’t know why?  , race bred show bred can do well , some can go on to be red hot ,  as u well know the owner will be a big factor on how the dog will turn out if conditioned to a high standard as with most dogs 👍 trev 70s show bred bred poppy very smart bitch  no work breds in her ped sort of upends the must  see parents work must be work bred mindset

I'll second that green lurchers some  so called working dogs were a myth but were cleverly advertised as stud dogs in the countryman weekly , earth dog running dogs and people bought into it ... trevs blue bitch just completely blows the so called working tag completely out of the water been primarily show bred..all or 99per cent of whippets will work some better than others but a lot is down to care and maintenance of these fire crackers... as for the race genetics failing I would sooner have a racing bred whippet than following the pied piper and falling into the trap of the working lines tag..just my opinion
