Looking to adopt a Whippet - 35+ years experience with IWs, Greyhounds, & Whippets

The Crew having fun!
I would like to adopt a Whippet - age or gender not important.
I have been a companion to Whippets for more than 30 years. I have primarily lure coursed my Whippets, but have also shown them in AKC and IABCA conformation.
Several of the Whippets I bred were trained and placed as service dogs. I am widowed now and only occasionally course my rescued Whippet and Greyhound.
Any dog I get will be neutered or spayed, if not already. I live by myself on 5 country acres, with my current four dogs. Emi Greyhound age 3, Fletcher Whippet age 4, Maggie Golden age 7-8, Teddy Welsh Terrier age 7-8.
All of these dogs are rescues - Maggie and Teddy were found abandoned near my home in cold Decembers. No one answered any of my ads for them. Emi came to me at 4-1/2 months old from a Craigslist ad. I am her 4th owner since she left the breeder's.
Fletcher was surrendered at a doggy daycare in Des Moines. He came to me at 20 months as a very anxious dog. Training for lure coursing has made him more focused and less anxious. He and Emi are BFFs, though all my dogs get along well.
I have fenced property - the dog pen is about 1/3-1/2 acre with a 6" fence. I live about 90 miles north of Minneapolis-St. Paul - about 90 miles south of Duluth, MN.
Please let me know if you amy have a dog for me! I will consider a long-term foster or dog-share and terms for showing or coursing.
