This breed was created in the north of England, about a century ago, to replace the Fox terrier in hunting the hare. It seems to come from crosses between different terriers (Fox, Bedlington), the Italian Little Greyhound and the Greyhound. Its name would derive from the expressions "whip up" or "whip it".
