It is essential here at Demerlay that any puppies that we breed go to their forever homes where they will be loved and cherished as part of the family regardless of whether they are to be shown or kept as family pets.

We realise that unfortunately sometimes circumstances may change which is why I always offer to help to rehome any of the whippets I have bred & prefer owners

to contact me as Soon As Possible if they are having problems.

     Phena is by Demerlay River Rapids at Brockfield owned by Jeff & Barbara Poole


                                          Below quote from Phena's owner


Phena  qualified as a racing whippet at West Somerset Pedigree Racing Club last year but we now take her lure coursing as it suits her better. She loves the longer course .

We took her to the BSFA (British Sighthound Field Association ) at Newbury for the first time in May and she came 3rd  in her class with a good score.

The dogs run in pairs but are scored individually on stamina, agility, enthusiasm, endurance and following the lure. On Sunday July 19 she competed for the 3rd time and was first in her class (BIC).There are 4 classes altogether and Phena’s score put her 4th out of 44 whippets. We are so proud of her as she is competing with dogs who are bred from lure coursing lines.
