With such a sweet face, it’s no wonder whippets have found their way into the hearts of many, and it also helps that they simply love human affection.
While very devoted and clingy, this breed is known for being low-maintenance and quiet, rarely barking or demanding attention — although they do crave attention. Whippets need serious exercise, but it makes them all the more enjoyable to live with.
