To someone unfamiliar with the breed, the Whippet could almost look too thin. The athletic dog’s slenderness is nothing to worry about however and will only help with its speed and agility. The average Whippet will weigh between 25 and 40 pounds.Colour
In conformation shows, any Whippet colour is acceptable. This means that the breed can come in nearly any combination of dog colours and markings. Whippets can be spotted, patched or solidly coloured and can be seen in black, white, grey, tan, fawn, brown, blue or brindle.
