Firefly Cove Whippets is a small, family kennel. As a family we strive to nurture our dogs and pups with the love and care that they need. As whippet breeders, we focus on proper nutrition and exercise for their optimal health. It is our goal to maintain the beautiful characteristics that make Whippets so very special.
Our puppies are handled from day one. They are gentled and socialized with the help of our children. We believe this is great for developing the best temperament, conducive to all settings and environments.
The Whippet is a medium-sized dog, originating in England, a descendant of the greyhound. Because of it's amazing agility and speed, this sight-hound was originally bred as a hunting dog. It is the fastest accelerating dog, with a top speed of 35 mph. In addition to these fantastic qualities, the whippet makes a wonderful pet. It is very social and very devoted, forming a close bond with it's person.
