I am considering getting a Whippet. I like the idea that they are generally gentle, mild-mannered, clean, quiet and docile. I am considering getting TWO so they won't be lonely when I am at work. I would get both of them 'fixed' as soon as they were old enough. I was wondering if it would be better to get two of the same sex, opposite, or doesn't it matter? (as long as they're neutered)... I live in a city apartment and have a calm, quiet lifestyle. I am a very organized, responsible and low-key type of person. Providing I walk them adequately, would whippets be comfortable in an apartment? Also, any tips for walking a whippet? ( certain type of harness or leash, etc )... bc I understand they have the tendency to chase things (small animals, etc) and ** I am only 5'2 and 100 lbs. ** So I worry/wonder about this... That's probably the main concern I have about them. Everything else I find very appealing and think I could accommodate. Do you think the Whippet would be a good choice for me? or not so much? Other breeds I have looked up (as potential choices for apartment dogs,) are either too noisy or shed too much. ( I can't have dogs known to bark excessively or shed heavily. ) Any advice would be appreciated. THANK YOU!
