yea, sorry didnt realise it had been talked about so much.

 

Thats okay, it seems to be the in thing to advertise as Luguna whippets, when they really are whippets with some Laguna in their back breeding.

Slowly, slowly catch the Monkey, don't worry, there are more Dogs ruined by pushing them too much, at 10 Months try a bit of Lamping or Ferreting.

I had a Whippet X Beddy which was 18 inch, only inch bigger than yours, and she was a cracker.

What is the cross in your Dog?

Years ago I was lucky to see one of the best hare catching dogs in my area, this bitch used to catch them and let them then go, then one day, the penny dropped, your pup is chasing, and did catch, so I would not worry about it, pity you didn't know her breeding though.

Although i agree with what has been said about the fire and toughness of these little dogs, the plain fact of the matter is that they DO take their knocks worse than a heavier set / thicker skinned dog if you run them on really rough land. My lad is 18 months and has had three bad accidents that have resulted in needing vet attention, one of which almost ended his career and life. Having said that, some of the land i run him on is very hazerdous. A lot of it has to do with his very high prey drive and single minded focus when running quarry, he will literally smash into / through anything in his way.
