He was a rabbiting dog, And that was his purpors, but run and killed fox when we come across them on the lamp, I Did not go with the lamp especialy for fox, He was used for ferreting, He was also used on Top when terriers were to ground on fox, for bolters, and for terriers boltig fox out of cover, As for how many fox in one night 3 the most, and a bag full of rabbits, The most in a week, I would lying to make a guess, never counted in a season, Like i say he was a rabbiting dog, I ran him on a fox when he was 18 mounths old, he took hold and the fox put a fang through his mussel he yelped, then went crazy on it and hated them with vengence after, He rarelly  took a bite after, he just seemed to have the nack.  PRE. BAN.

I know its not a 1st cross collie gey, but I have had deerhound greyhound collie greyhounds for 12- 13yr and I cant knock them. My uncle has has bred them for 25yrs you will of seen them on the strictley lamping videos etc. I have a dog in now 27tts and he is the ideal all round dog, takes all quarry single handed. You dont need this bull x breed there ideal for drawing dogs but thats about it!!

collie crosses can and do well on teeth seen a few good at that job thing is with the bull cross is it being able to catch the fox first not the best catch dogs unless your tossing it out of the 4x4 on top of them  :D atb

the moral to this is, that other types of lurcher can and do take fox, there is so much hype on here bullx this bullx that, a 70/80 pound dog to a 14/18 poound fox, I like my dogs to be more than one trick ponys, to lamp fox at night and ferret with the same dog next the morning a good all round lucher, Every man to his own

You ever seen a bull/greyhound work ? Mine is used for abit of everything.

x nonsense make me laugh I seen just as many bull x jibb as collie x I think it down dog either wanna do em or not. Bull x can do abit of everythin but depends on your standards to me bull x got to many limits stamina a big issue and not havin a brain depletes em quickly and most dnt hav any gears this were lurcher to lurcher cones in merry blood together and in hope hav far better animal then the straight bull grey or collie grey or even saluki/grey but kid you not plenty collie X out ther smashing teeth week in week out same as plenty bull x to

 not sure on that, have seen some very quick and athletic bull X's - the cobbier ones have often been first cross litter wastage or line bred dogs with a job in mind.

that said plenty of waste in first cross collie X litter.

I've seen some very good collie crosses on fox, and i've seen some shit aswell but most of the hype surrounding bullcrosses these days is only that "hype" because the bulls used to create them are nothing like in the same league as the bulls originally used to create the bullcross.

Without the right blood your just setting yourself up to fail, whatever the cross..... ;)

  very true  you need the right blood to be in with a fighting chance, thats why went for my pup both from good lines top gsd and top greyhound , but you still need that bit of luck with any pup that you pick :yes:
