I'm in South Wales. I've kept and worked dogs all my life, terriers and lurchers mainly, although I've also kept labs, spaniels and hounds, along with other breeds.
I haven't hunted seriously for years. I've just kept dogs for breeding and to take out to watch them work the bushes for rabbits. No lurcher, gun or nets. Just to watch them work and give them exercise.
At the moment, I have a Jack and three pug crosses (for breeding). They all love the bunnies. One of the pug cross Cavaliers that I have, is as keen as any dog I've seen, but she wouldn't know how to kill a mouse. Find it, just not kill it.
It would be interesting to hear if other people have unlikely breeds that love to work.
