The Whippet is a natural-born athlete. A picture of agile speed with the inverted S-curve of the sighthound, they look much like smaller versions of their close relatives, the Greyhound. They are a medium-sized dog with large, expressive eyes and a smoothly arched back.
Lifespan: 12–15 yr
Height: 17–18 in

Whippets shed less than other breeds, and their short, light coat only requires a brush once a week and an occasional bath as needed. Whippets are a very low-maintenance grooming dog. All dogs require regular dental care, including at-home teeth brushing and professional dental cleanings, and the Whippet is no exception. Maintaining good dental hygiene is important for their overall long-term health.
