In the 19th century the whippet, probably a cross between terriers, small greyhounds, and Italian greyhounds, was used in England for the popular gambling sport of rabbit coursing (racing) in which it would "snap like a whip" around a small field, snatching up and killing live rabbits. The adaptable whippet can fit in anywhere--city, apartment, suburbs, or country. These gentle, mild-mannered, and affectionate dogs respond enthusiastically to obedience training. Neat, clean, and easy to train, they make great family dogs.
Appearance
The whippet's long, lean head tapers to the nose; its small ears, called rose ears, fold over and back to reveal the inside of the ear. The whippet carries its long, tapering tail straight down or between its legs when not in motion.
Height: 18-22 inches. Weight: 20-30 lbs.
