What we're about
Keep Austin Whippet (formerly Central Texas Sighthounds) is a social club for all sighthounds and other hyper houndies in Austin and the surrounding areas. Formerly hosted by whippets Tucker and Bowie (https://www.instagram.com/centraltexassighthounds/) and their human Jenna, who've done an AWESOME job building this community - now managed by whippets Pixie and Jack (https://www.instagram.com/keepaustinwhippet/) (and a rotating cast of foster siblings) and their human Melissa. Drop us a line and say hi anytime -- especially with ideas, suggestions, or needs from this community as we grow!
Our mission is to gather our whippets, lurchers, greyhounds, Italian greyhounds, salukis, deerhounds, wolfhounds, basenjis, and all other sighthounds & sporting dogs to have fun and zoomie together on the regular! It's always great to learn about different sighthounds and even learn something new about our pups.
We plan on-leash Whippet Walks around Town Lake monthly and other fun off-leash playdates and educational/fundraising events with local pet brands, local rescue partners, local trainers & veterinary advisors throughout the year. We're currently in the process of building a website with local resources and referrals and adoptable whippet-y sighthounds in Central Texas, as well as a blog!
Any suggestion is greatly appreciated, and I can't wait for you to become part of our sighthound pack!
