During which month/s of the year do Whippets have litters

This question may sound silly but I have no experience whatsoever with breeding or raising dogs. Some dog breeds, such as the Basenji, tend to have their heat cycle and later have litters during the month December/January and sometimes during the summer season, i.e. August every year. I would like to know whether the Whippets have litters during a certain period (month/s) of the year or if this dog breed can have litters during any month of the year.

Most bitches will cycle twice a year or so, with no particular set time for "all bitches will cycle starting in XYZ month".

However, with some breeds (usually the more primitive ones), it's more common to cycle only once a year, and close to a particular time.
