The Whippet (also English Whippet or Snap dog) is descended from greyhounds. Whippets are quiet, intelligent, and not prone to barking, but require regular exercise. They are generally gentle dogs, and may be content to spend much of the day resting. They are the fastest dogs of their weight, capable of achieving speeds of 35 miles per hour (56 km/h). This is due to their unique way of running, which is referred to as a double suspension gallop. This gait results in four of the dog’s legs being off the ground twice in each stride, once when the legs are completely extended and again when they are tucked under the body.
