Fenced yard. I think he drives a van, but I think its parked in front while the yard is in the back. I haven't seen his house (or been back to AZ) in 4 years . . . so . . . I'm going on memory here!

Whippets like walks and runs, and our running to them is just a brisk walk. IMO they need off-lead exercise periodically in order to really run.

Wow i must have got a good one then. None of those problems with my little girl. They are prone to tooth problems, you really have to keep up with the brushing. You are right about the fragil thing.

Maybe miniature schnauzer?

That was my first thought - a rescued retired racing dog, Whippet or Italian Greyhound.
