I got him last month, he was a rescue from a jack Russell place. They think he is mixed with greyhound or whippet. Thoughts?

I hope so! They are awesome!!

I would go by behavior more than only looks ...
Does he like to hide in blankies and be totally covered? Does he sleep a lot but run like the wind at any opportunity (but not for long)?
Does he have a STRONG prey drive, hate to be alone, hang on your every move, but shyly?
Is he quiet, clean, a bit nervous?
Is he a picky eater?

If he has a satin coat, very short hair, very thin tucked tummy shape and carry his tail tucked a lot?

Mine barks very little except to protect the home, which is typical I hear ...

You can try the pet DNA but I am not sure it's totally reliable.
