An elegant sighthound capable of speeds up to 35 mph, the Whippet developed in England, where he was used for racing and rabbit hunting. Amiable, friendly and gentle, Whippets make excellent indoor companions. Despite their intensity during sporting pursuits, they are quiet and dignified at home. These natural athletes do best with regular exercise.
