Kess is our first Whippet.
Our elegant fawn and white beauty is eminently feminine in form. Her lovely outline, her warm and gentle expression belies the fierce huntress within. Kestrel is an avid lure courser. She appears to enjoy nothing more than pushing herself to the limit in her pursuit of the "bunny".
Kestral came to us from Avita Whippets, Cheryl Boyer, a breeder in the San Francisco area when she was 12 weeks old. She was born November 17th, 2003.
The Kess Puppy pictures were taken by her breeder. Our Early Kess Gallery is pictures taken when she was 4-5 months old.
