not real sure mate, i think what happened bullxs took of in the 70s and they were very good dogs that would start early compare to a lot of other lurcher types that was about then , and i will admit my self i do like a bullx grey myself as ive had 3 before all good dogs,and quite like the look of a bullx as well . Where as gsd x grey just looks like a big gsd lol, but being honest mate, i find Buck is very similar to my bullx regards atuide , he up for anything that's in front of him, and deff got better stamina than my bullxs , he recovers quick from each run, even better than what Bryn my colliex grey does.
why do you think this aren't the most popular x then ?or why did this x lose favour if it so good?
not really sure , the other dog Buster is a 1/4 malamute .3/4 lurcher and he is very fast+agile dog smaller than Buck , Buster 27in 74lb .But from what read and heard Alsatian x greys or Alsatian x lurcher are fast tough lurchers.You only got to see some proper working bred East/European gsds or Bel mals working to see how fast+agile strong dogs there are in pure from , so put to a running dog you got hell of a good chance of getting a very useful lurcher i reckon
he sounds a very usefull dog and nimble for his size and weight alwhy do lso, at 28tts and 87lb he sounds a simular range to the more popular malamute x how would you compare the gsdx to the mal x
his stamina better than my colliexs, regards the brains side of it, i find the colliexs are like thinking type dogs meaning thinking about the runs it does or the quarry it going to chase or tackle, where as he just go in does it regardless quarry or runs, if that makes sense.? To me a gsdx grey got a different mind set to a colliex grey , his 2sisters are the same and another brother the same very full on type dogs
is his stanima and inteligance on parr with the collie x's off past
fair enough but will never equal a good bull x ,I and I mean a good bull x but that's just my view ,best of luck with your dogs this season
