The Whippet first appeared in England from carefully selected crosses of small English greyhounds and certain terriers. The "Snap Dog" was a favourite of Welsh coal miners who… relied on their pets to capture fresh meat for the dinner table. The breed's distinct advantages in its swiftness, quietness and earlier small size did not go unnoticed by poachers who would hide the Whippet under their coats away from the warden's suspicious eye and then sneak them onto the king's grounds to hunt. The miners first began competitive racing with the Whippet, dubbing it "The Poor Man's Race Horse." An entire week's wages might ride on the speed of the family hearth dog. A fast dog then was money in the pocket and special pride to the one who owned him. They were imported into Ireland not long after were a rich tradition of going to the dog track races still exists today.

Many whippets can reach about 40 mph (65 km/h).
The top speed recorded of a greyhound dog was taken in Australia March 3rd 2004. "Cheetah" , the amazing greyhound was clocked at a top speed of 84 MPH (wind assisted).
the top speed of a boxer is about 200kmh
In my experience whippets tend to be more quiet and shy and can lack the confidence that guarding breeds can have.
Yes. A whippet resembles a small greyhound.
WOW! Yes they are!! They dont shed hairs, they are very clean animals and don't roll in poo or on purpose get dirty!
Hello there! if your female whippet has traits of a whippet she may be classified as a quarter or even less. when dogs are mated they don't necessarily have to be two pedigree… dogs. one dog may have traits of lab for example. check this with your vet they may have more sufficent theories than myself
It's up to you... but I would recommend a smaller dog like a Papillon.

I depends I have a whippet who is knee hight and is easy in the car and is small but can get a bit excited (he is young though) but grey hounds are very docile but and big and… are diffiult to move (in the car wouldn't fit very well on the back seat) and cn intimidate youngsters.
A Whippet dog can be adopted through many channels which you can adopt normal dogs. Please take care and know that many strays are looking for a good home and puppy mills are …not a good place to adopt or purchase a dog.

Yes, the Saluki dog breed is closely related to the Whippet.
