Bully Whippets are 100% healthy and normal tempered, the gene is a "mutation" yes but that's what every gene is.

It only a very slight chance at hip displaysia, something most dogs over 35lbs risk getting. It does not lead to muscle cramps (guess you assumed big muscles = instant muscle cramps?) or "severe pain."
