some of you lads just dont get it do you http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... are you telling me that a fast pure saluki is as fast off the mark as a well bred 1st x saluki x hardblood grew, hybrid, for rabbits ?? over short daytime runs,then out lamping at night, and who said i want another saluki or a match dog ????? i dont thanks, in my opinion if your breeding a lurcher you should do it taking into consideration,(not in any particular order) 1 the quarry you are hunting
2 the type of land and conditions you will be hunting on most of the time, 3 using the right proven parents, which can hopefully both, contribute the requirements you are looking for,
plus that whats better than having a couple of decent little dogs that you can be proud to say that you have bred yourself,
i tell you what,, you do it your way, and i will do it mine,
its the right path to follow cocker dont be swayed ,seen this cross on a few occasions only difference the salukis were prob not has good has that bitch they will accomodate each other size wise wont make any diff erence ,,put me down for one atb bunnys.
the fastest whippet in the country ????

but then we would have whinshaws hope one sees the funny side of this coment ha ha ha atb bunnysBRAINS & NOSE OF THE COLLIE WOULD BE NICE AS WELL C/P ????& A DECENT COAT?
i agree, when i breed mine i will keep the lot until i got the best,you r right but whats the chance having whole litter come out slow with no wind? mines a fast nippy type sal at mo anyways.good jumper, good sight, beautiful to look at, jst pig ignorant.lol. spiteful too.
Getting back on subject; If you put a top class Non-Ped Whippet to a class Saluki bitch; you would be hoping the prodgeny would have the best atributes of both breeds ? The out and out speed of the sire, and the staying power of the dam, but unfourtunately it doesn't normaly work that way, you could end up with a pup that was slow off the mark and no "wind" !! It wouldn't stop me trying it, though; and a cross between a top class Non-Ped and a Saluki is one I would be interested in owning ! Best of luck if you do it !!
I was only giving a "worst case scenerio", it's just as possible to have a litter of world beaters, a litter of average dogs, a shit litter, or a mix of good and bad. But we breed Lurchers hoping for the tenacity of the Bull, the speed of the Grey, the wind of the saluki, the early pace of the Whippet, etc. !! If the perfect Lurcher has been bred.... I haven't seen it, but I'm still looking !!

Nice!! i like & a 1st cross ,any one know what height & weight this dog
One of the most prolific sires in the Non-Ped world from many years ago was a dog called "Bilko"; most of the top Non-Peds of today can trace this dog in their ancestry. I remember the owner saying his one regret was never putting Bilko over a pure Saluki. If you use a top Non-Ped over your saluki now, I'm sure the pups will do the business, but then again, I've a soft spot for Whippets AND Salukis !
As for using a "Supreme Racing Champion" as your stud; most Supr.Rch's will be in the 24 - 26lb range, and will not be any where near as fast as the "big boys" of the Non-Ped scene, the 36lb, 40lb and No-Limit Scratch Champions. There is a very good dog, which I think may be at stud now, called Deneside Belle, it's a half cross, but has won many Scratch Championships. Good luck !
i agree with u http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... ,,,,also one off the tallest 1/2 crosses ive seen,,, http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... also bloody fast dog,,,,,straight or bend,s http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...
