The Whippet is a decedent of the Greyhound and can trace its history to the mid-18th century in England. Sometimes referred to as snap dogs, the Whippet would corner their prey and then snap it up. Swift with keen eyesight, the Whippet was revered for its speed and endurance when hunting in large open meadows. In the 19th century in England, dog racing was a popular sport and the Whippet was prized for its speed. First to cross the finish line often meant life abroad for the Whippet as many top racers were exported for handsome sums. Most likely the earlier Whippet survived on a diet hunting spoils and barn vermin. This diet would have been nutritionally inadequate for those Whippets suffering from sensitive stomach issues.
