Whippets marry muscle and strength to elegance and grace in the quest for speed. Built for work, all exaggeration must be avoided to safeguard their aptitudes. Now the most popular of the sighthounds, Whippets were known as small Greyhounds for a while. Their origins are not well known, although there’s no denying undersized sighthounds have existed in Britain for centuries.
