    Just got a Staffy x Whippet

    i just recently got a staffy cross whippet pup, i had pretty much had the pick of the litter cos they were bred at my girlfriends by accident (a bit of a weird mix i know..lol). hes built like a staffy but slightly taller and his snout is a little bit longer but i wondered if eni 1 had got eni pictures of this mix not likely but i just wondered. ive always wanted a staffy or a bull terrier but with my dalmatian been aggresive towards dogs ive never dared get 1 but ive been told there would be nothing to worry about if i got 1 as a pup, but with him having whippet in him it might not be as drastic as wot ive always been scared of.

    Congratulations on your pup :D and welcome.

    i have seen quite a few staffy x whippets. especially a few years ago as there was quite a large litter born locally and it seemed they all went to homes in the Derby area.
    All the dogs in this litter looked identical and you could spot one of them a mile away. I remember they were a nice useful looking sort of a dog but the only one I got to know personally (Taz) didn't like other male dogs.
    My own pup Rosie is 1/4 staffy ( half Jack Russell terrier and 1/4 collie) so I too have a soft spot for staffy mixes :D

    Hi ! !

    i have a staffy x. she is a rescue so not 100% sure of her x, but we think it's lurcher or whippet. she muscley and getting broad now, but she is quite slender in shape. i put a photo on, but it's not the best (she not uch of a poser). this is her about 6 months.

    thats a niiice dog she's beatiful looks quite simalar to wot i wud expect mine to turn out like. i havent got a camera to take pics of him yet but as soon as i can i'll post a few of him and my other dog, my pup isnt brindle he's got simalar markings of his mum (staffy) but with the colour of the whippet which is like a grey creamy fudgey coulor with white. he's definetly taken more after the staffy like a few of them did, but sum of them took more after the whippet u can easily tell with the shape of there heads and the shape of there legs and the way they walk. there was this 1 white pup that was pure white and was just like a staffy he had taken after his grandad (staffy) which was pure white, and ive seen a few young staffy pups he was exactly the same i wanted him but this vet nurse claimed him cos the mum had to have b operated on cos she struggled giving birth. im pleased with the 1 ive got now hes a lil **** lol.

    I have a staffy x whippet or a whiffy as we call her :lol: . Tamzin is 6 now and was the result of an accidental mating. I recieved a call at work from a collegue to say their neighbour was going to drown the pups that day if the last 2 couldn't get homes. One was left and that was Tammy. Her mum was a red staffy and father a black ans white whippet, all the pups were black and white apart from the runt who was red thats our girl. She is a proper little snob but with a mad streak too she is also camera shy

    Lovely dog, i knew someone who i don't see anymore LOL, they have a staff x German shepherd lovely dog with people the owners are nice BUT NOT that good at owning dogs, their dog is extremely dog aggressive and has attacked quite a few dogs so i have been told which obviously shows they shouldn't own a dog they should secure their garden and front door better, i know this behaviour well cause the dog i have if he had the chance would kill every dog in the neighbour hood LOL but he is great and laid back with kids and most people but i know he won't tolerate dogs so i use my brain keep him on the lead and be vigilant

    Also whatever the breed has been bred for tells people what to expect but the idiot owners don't think of that, anyway maybe your dog will try and hunt small mammals maybe because he's half wippet and all depending on the staff you might have to watch their behaviour around other dogs?

    HI,

    I was searching for whippet staffy cross info. I came across this forum. I've seen pictures here of dogs lookin very similar to my brindle whippet staffy cross "foe" We rehomed her a few years ago. She not as slim as some of the dogs hehe And She beats up my rottweiller. She is the top dog over our 4 year old Rotty male Kane. She has the speed of a whippet but the attitude of a Staffy!

    Was great seeing everyone'd pictures

    HI!
    I own a staffyxwhippet!
    her name is bella. she is a good dog. i got her from the pund about 4 months ago. Whippets are great dogs. But you have to get them socialised from an early age, otherwise they will be completely crazy and uncontrollable when in public. They are very sociable, but when you introduce them to a new dog, it is best to keep an eye on them.
    when you walk them , try to keep on open spaces , beacuse they LOVE TO RUN!
    They arent viscious, and they wont put up with other dogs crap. Our bella is the boss dog. She is boss of our St.Bernard dog.
    Whippets are dogs that are very needy for compassion and attention. If they dnt get it they start to chew.
    And dont worry. If they shake all they time, its ok.
    i have pics of my dog Bella.have a look by:
    1. searching _flickr- its a search engine for PHOTOS
    2. type in - Bella staffyxwhippet - or - xmadstax_666 -
    3. Have a look at bella, she is 3 years old,
    hope this is useful!
    Good luck!
