whippet sized greyhounds

Recommended Posts

can you get whippet sized greyhounds just a thought replie grateful

I saw a book a couple of years ago that said a whippet and greyhound are of the same DNA. They are the same breed just different sizes!

 

Bollocks mate :D

Thanks for your intelligent reply! Well done.

Tapwatcher threw a lot of "undersize" dogs and bitches in his litters,not eye catchers to look at but a few were handy on the track :thumbs:

I don't know about whippet sized greyhounds, but greyhound sized whippets are already here mate, 23"-24" dogs are not uncommon and it's bad for the breed IMO.
