Find Your Whippet Puppy Now!
The Whippet, like the Greyhound, is an elegant, slender dog. While not quite as fast as the speed of light, the breed is the fastest domesticated animal in its weight class, reaching up to 35 mph. With a racing background, the whippet excels at dog sports like lure coursing. In motion, he's powerful and graceful. At rest, he is the very definition of couch potato, happy to relax with his people. In fact, Whippet puppies grow up to be excellent housemates. With regular exercise, they're calm and quiet in the house, happy just to spend time with their family.
