The Whippet is a mid-sized dog with a lean, muscular, athletic, and aerodynamically designed, body. They look very similar to its cousin, the Greyhound. Whippets have long noses, small ears, which perk up when excited, oval shaped eyes and a long, thin tail. Whippet's coats are fine and short and come in a range of colours including: black, white, slate blue or mixed. They balance muscular strength and power with grace and elegance being built for speed and work. Whippets are both working and racing dogs and pawsome companions.
The Whippet is generally not a fussy eater. They can have a small appetite but requires a good quality, easily digested diet. Like most breeds (or humans, for that matter!), they may become overweight if overfed or underexercised.
The Whippet has a smooth, short-haired coat, making it super easy to groom. Although it does benefit from regular grooming, which will keep the coat looking glossy. Take care when grooming as their coat and skin is very fine and sensitive. Any shampoo used should be gentle without harsh ingredients as these may cause reactions in the sensitive skin. Eyes and ears should be checked when grooming and his teeth will benefit from regular brushing.
