The best medium dog breeds
Medium dog breeds are just the right size. Read on to learn more about these dog breeds’ personalities and heritage. One of them might just be the perfect fit to help grow your family by four paws.
Whippets look similar to Greyhounds, but they are much smaller, measuring about 45-55cm tall at the shoulder. “They’re incredibly fast and they love (and need) several quick bursts of intense activity each day, such as chasing a Frisbee. In between their energetic bursts they’re couch potatoes and love to snuggle up with their owners,” says Dr Jamie Richardson. “They’re very loving and affectionate, low-maintenance and rarely bark.” Whippets love having a big garden to run around in, but they are equally happy living in an apartment (as long as they get enough exercise).
“If you love cute wrinkles and don’t mind some stubbornness, bulldogs are a great breed,” says Alex Willen. Because bulldogs are very stocky, they typically stay relatively small for their weight. “You can find a number of different varieties of bulldogs, including French, British and Australian, but they’re all relatively similar in personality. They don’t require much exercise, which is helpful if you’re looking for an apartment dog or generally have a busy schedule.”
