The Whippet is a medium-size dog in the Sighthound family. They are slender, swift, short-haired and usually raised for racing in England. Physically similar to a small Greyhound, their popularity has led to the Whippet name being used for many products including cars and cookies.

The picture blow shows special Whippet called Wendy. Her appearance is a long way from the usual long, lean and sleek look of her breed. She was born with a genetic defect which has left her with strong muscles looking like the Incredible Hulk of Hounds.
