Whippet

The Whippet, also known as the English Whippet or Snap Dog, is a sighthound who strongly resembles the looks of a Greyhound, but significantly smaller. Sometimes referred to as the “poor man’s racehorse,” the Whippet has the highest running speed for its weight, with the ability to reach speeds of 35 miles per hour. While the Whippet loves to be in pursuit, making for a great competition dog, he also enjoys to stretch out and relax as a companion. For such an elegant appearance, the Whippet is actually quite low-maintenance and rarely barks; which makes him a great option for people who live in city apartments, as long as he is exercised regularly.

The average Whippet has an overall height of 23.0”-28.0” (61-71 cm), withers height of 18.0”-22.0” (45-56 cm), and body length of 25.0”-31.0” (58-79 cm). A typical Whippet weighs between 15-31 lb (7-14 kg) and has a lifespan of roughly 12-15 years.
