They can reach speeds of up to 35 miles per hour, that is around 56 kilometres per hour!
The strongest dog in the world is a Whippet called Wendy. Wendy is a Bully Whippet, which is where the two Myostatin genes that usually create the lean Whippet actually mutate and in cause the dog to appear to be unnaturally buff.
Whippets love the couch just as much as they do a race track! Whilst they are very fast and love to exercise, they love to recuperate just as much!
Their running style is called “Double Suspension Gallop”.
Whippet’s were given the nickname “Poor man’s Greyhound”, and were mainly owned by British miller workers, coal miners and tenant farmers in the 18th and 19th centuries.
