disagree with u ther [BANNED TEXT] any dog can be trained straight greyhound or nt and i have a greyhound bitch that wouldnt even think ov killing or laming any other dog and will walk through any livestock without even looking at them and she is a 3yr old 27tts powerful game bitch which has raced but is now just a worker and good at it certain quarryhttp://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub...
well having kept greyhounds for many years id say,got to agree,they will run through walls and hedges to get at thier prey,also a factor i would take into consideration is they will kill small dogs sheep and anything else they happen to take a fancy to.a greyhound cross at least you can train it and to a degree where it is managable around other dogs which are a lot smaller than themselfs.im sure there are exceptions out there,but as a general rule a racing grey will see anything smaller than it as fair game.

The second was another mate's about 5yr's ago what he used to race..when he stopped getting it trained and stopped racing it he would take it around the field's for excercise and a few run's...that dog never caught anything and would stop running pretty quick and could barely walk back home after one run..
Both bitches where really friendly around people and other dog's and sheep.

They are obviously fast, and if you get the right one they are as game as any running dog no matter what breed.
They are loyal and have a steely determination.
They definatley aint vicious as a breed, you will get the odd bad egg but id say thats more down to the owners.
Altogether a Great breed of dog.
Alongside the saluki, deerhound and the Pitbull imo the best there is.

get 1 from a pup and it should,nt know any difference if you bring it on with lurchers
well yes i would agree with that.my point i was making was about ex racers.and also i have to say ther racers who would pin another dog that came up to it,or try and break its own neck trying to break free to get at something were imo always the best racers.my advice was to be very carefull aquirring an ex racer and treating it as you would a lurcher.yes great dogs arond people and will be docile to a fault,but they see something they wanna snatch and try kill they will.all this talk of its how the owners brought them up.well most greyhound men do not bond with these dogs and the dogs dont bond with the owners,there there to do a job and the dog looks on you as only a meal ticket.i have had greys for a considerable time in my kennels and they quite happily went away with a stranger and settled in.
