The Whippet looks like a small greyhound. He is graceful and slender, but actually quite hardy.

The fine dense coat comes in many colors: brindle, black, red, fawn, tigered white or slate blue, either solid-colored or mixed.

The muzzle is long and slender and the overall impression is one of streamlined elegance.

This miniature-looking greyhound has small rose-shaped ears, an elegantly arched neck, a deep chest, and its back is long and broad.

The abdomen is retracted, and the tail is pointed.
