The Whippet (also English Whippet or Snap Dog) is a dog breed of medium size. They are a sighthound breed that originated in England, where they descended from Greyhounds. Whippets today still strongly resemble a smaller Greyhound. Part of the Hound group, Whippets have relatively few health problems other than arrhythmia. Whippets also participate in dog sports such as lure coursing, agility, and flyball. We have three generations of Whippets. They don’t need much exercise as they are actually very lazy, spending most of their time under covers fast asleep.
The name is derived from an early 17th-century word, now obsolete, meaning “to move briskly”. At Rosewood House Pets we are big fans of the Whippet breed and hold them as pets ourselves, they are very calm, loving and a great family pet.
