What is a Whippet?!
“If your dog is fat, you aren’t getting enough exercise.”
Called “the poor man’s race horse” a Whippet is a half-sized Greyhound relative bred in England to bring home dinner. At 35mph they’re the fastest dogs in their weight class, the fastest accelerating dogs in the world and almost as fast as Greyhounds overall. An under-appreciated breed in the US, when they’re not running circles around other dogs at the dog park, they’re quiet, loving, cuddling homebodies.
