NOTICE: THIS IS DEVEREUX WHIPPETS
FOR NEW UPDATED WEBSITE
Welcome to Devereux Whippets!
Let me introduce ourselves....
We're located in the foothill's of the Smokey Mountains. Devereux Whippets consists of Cecil & Robin Brown and their daughter Angie Bass and eleven beautiful whippets. We have owned whippets for over ten years. Our first two whippets are rescues, Izzy and Savannah. They started the whippet madness for us! We then were blessed with Truly and Olivia, our first two show whippets.
Truly, CH Sportingfield Always Be True FCh, SC, OTR, is Angie's first show girl from Debbie of Sportingfield's and Olivia, CH Wilhaus Here Comes The Sun JC, is Robin's first show girl from Kitty of Wilhaus Whippets. We finished both of our girls all owner handled and we were very fotunate to end up with these two beautiful successful bitches. They were both chosen from small pups and have matured into beautiful dual purpose whippets. We have been top twenty ranked, group placing and had lots of big breed wins with our girls, we're so proud of them.
We ALWAYS OWNER handle our whippets.
Our girls are also successful in the field and on the track with FCh and OTR titles and most important of all they are the most wonderful bed companions that anyone could ever ask for!
We bred Olivia in 2005 to the #1 whippet in the country,
CH Sportingfield's Rock On, (after all health tests were clear on both prospective parents) and she whelped 7 wonderful pups. We kept 4 out of 7 so then we had 9! Two of pups went to a wonderful home in TN and our beautiful fawn boy Oliver went to our friend of Outboating Whippets where he is burning up the coursing fields in FL.
We have been fortunate enough to have done quite well with the four girls we have kept. In their limited showing we've had some pretty big wins, from winning puppy Hound Group's, Hound Group in a Breeder's Sweepstakes Show Case, and Best in Show puppy. Our pups have had multiple Breed wins, over top ten Specials, Hound Group 1 & 2, multiple 5pt majors and now one of the four is a Top Twenty Contender within 2 months of being Specialed. We couldn't be more proud! Our pups love the field too, they have all turned out to be great runners! You couldn't ask for more!
Our 9th whippet is Fendi, Truly's dam. Her registered name is Sportingfield Promise Me Forever. Fendi (previously known as Wendy) & Angie took Winner's and Best of Winner's for a five point major at the 2005 AWC Southern Specialty. Sportingfield placed her here with Devereux Whippets to live out a wonderful retirement, she's such a sweetheart!
We bred Truly in 2006 to the infamous Rory. This should be an amazing litter! We're way too excited, these pups should turn out to be excellent dual purpose whippets too! We have kept two here at Devereux, male & female. The two other males have gone to their home in Atlantic Beach, FL with Mike Hattery of Hattery Hounds. We look forward to seeing these kids hitting the shows in Fall 2007.
Robin & Angie are are both WRAP (Whippet Rescue and Placement), AWC (American Whippet Club), & TVKC (Tennessee Valley Kennel Club) members.
We love to educate people on our breed and it is so important to us to preserve the health, quality, beauty and temperament of our breed. We want to keep whippets the best kept secret in the dog world. We think breeding whippet litters should only be done after both the sire and the dam have been health cleared, have the conformation that adheres to the AKC standard of the whippet, pedigree's that compliment each other and of course the wonderful temperment that whippets charm us with. Also, we believe that a whippet being considered for breeding should be able to do what it was created for and therefore be excellent in the field (a wonderful athlete with the heart and soul to run, run, run). HEALTH, TEMPERMENT, BEAUTY & ATHLETICISM, these are all the qualities that a whippet should possess prior to being bred. This is our opinion and this is what we believe will preserve our breed.
So that's Devereux Whippet's and and a little about us. Thanks for taking the time to read! We love our breed and we love our whippet friends that our breed has blessed us with!
Cecil & Robin Brown & Angela Bass
