whippets vs italian greyhounds
i've always wanted an italian greyhound because they're so freaking cute. my g/f suggested i get a whippet instead because they're bigger and heartier than ig's and they look just like them. she works at a local pet store/vet and she see's italian greyhounds come in frequently with broken legs just from jumping off of furnature. it makes sense. i'm not doubting her.
my question is is a whippet that much heartier? is a whippet a dog you can rough-house with. can they jump from heights such as the tailgate of a truck or to and from the seat of a truck? i understand they're one of the fastest dogs. my favorite thing is to play fetch with my brothers brittany with a tennis ball and a tennis racquet. is this something i could do with a whippet without fear of the dog getting injured from over running itself? i can see an italian greyhound tripping and breaking something at a full speed run.
