  • About Spellbound Whippets


    We are a small kennel located in Michigan. Our foundation girl, Willow, came to us from Linda Stewart at Endeavor Whippets and has provided a wonderful combination of structure, movement, and above all, a wonderful temperament that just “melts” us. We added to our whippet home with the addition of Whisper. Our girls enjoy practicing in agility, conformation, and “couch-surfing.” Our Willow not only finished her championship, but she also holds a Canine Good Citizen title which I am equally proud of. We look forward to many years of companionship, competition, and love.

    Our professions, veterinarian and physical therapist, combine to help us keep an eye out for correct health, temperament, structure, and movement.

    I believe our goal to be improving the breed by paying attention to structure, movement, and temperament. In addition, to work within a community of comradery to continue to identify, test, and isolate the health problems which afflict our breed.

    And above all…. to make sure that to the best of our ability EVERY puppy placed from our home to yours will be the most correct match we can make to allow for a lifetime of companionship.
