Finding a Breeder Near You

AWC Member Breeder and Breed Information Contact List

All of the individuals listed in this directory are current members in good standing of the American Whippet Club, Inc., therefore signifying their agreement to adhere to and uphold the AWC Code of Ethics, and have paid a modest fee for an annual listing on the AWC Website indicating their willingness to be contacted by our website visitors. There is no further written or implied recommendation by AWC of these breeders or any puppies/adults offered by them for sale or placement. The selection of a breeder is an important decision. We encourage any prospective Whippet owner to become familiar with our breed, the breed standard, possible hereditary defects that may occur in both puppies and adults, and to have fully read and understood all of the breed information on this website, especially the page entitled How to Find a Whippet.

The listings are arranged alphabetically by state by AWC Region.   Scroll down to find breeders who are listed within your region.

If you cannot find a breeder listing for your state or region, you may contact AWC Breeder Referral at  Further resources may be available through contacting the representatives of regional and local Whippet clubs listed on the Whippet Clubs page of this website.  Many such clubs offer breeder-referral to their breeder members.

When you write to any of these contacts, be sure to include your location and whether you are looking for a puppy, older puppy, young adult, or adoptable older adult. Initial contacts with Whippet Breeders via e-mail should include the following: where you live, your past history with owning dogs (even if none), your reasons for deciding you are ready to add a Whippet to your home at this time, and something about your living situation (house with fenced yard/condo/urban/single/married/any children/other pets/work from home vs. gone for 8-10 hours a day, etc.).  This will help your initial contacts to better help YOU find the right resources for your Whippet search, even if they may not have any available puppies or adults at the time of your inquiry.  Remember, the more detailed you are, the greater the chance you will be able to get a helpful response.  Many of our breeders have websites with contact forms that include interview questions.  If the breeder contact has a website with a contact form, be sure to use it.
