About us

My name is Karen LeJeune, and with my husband Ivan Busenius, we are Ethos Whippets. We live with our pack of Whippets in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.

It all started when we got ‘Jaylo’-National Select | Multi Group Winning | Multi Best Veteran In Show | Am Ch Can GCh SDW Dreamwindz Eyedoll. 

We had been thinking for many years about downsizing from Dobermans, which Karen had been involved with since 1979. We lost our last Doberman ‘Josie’ in October 2021, at the fabulous old age of 14. She was incredible. 

After deciding on a Whippet as our next breed, we were fortunate to find Miss Jaylo, and could not have asked for a better start. She has a stubborn streak, but is the most sweet and kind dog you can imagine, and absolutley gorgeous.  She produced many fabulous puppies for us in her two litters.

We will always love this breed, and hope to never be without them in our hearts and home. Please enjoy the website, it’s a tribute to our wonderful dogs.

Karen, Ivan and the Hounds
