I have a male Staghound (Blister) and he is VERY much the type that has thrown to the old Deerhound...he does resemble one, but he acts like one as well...my bitch is REALY like the old Deerhound, although she is minus a tail from work...she is like a missle on game.
They are such great, noble kinda dogs, a suprisingly strong and determined on toothed game as well!...what i like about them the most, is the complete ability to 'turn it off or on'...they can be laid in the yard, surrounded buy stock, chewing on a bone, then see a yote in the front field, and they are off after there NATURAL enemy!...cor, would be great to have one over here and see it run and tackle large (compared to UK standards), dangerous game like coyotes, bobcats etc...good, solid, original Deerhounds!...i LOVE 'em!

He is so LOYAL!,...that dog would die for me, and to be honest, the older he is getting, the better the bugger is!...he is like a fine Wine!..lol.
Like i said, i REALY like the dog, and it would be cool to get a REAL deerhound for him to go over, and continue a line of handy dogs, that are all sighthound...
Long live the REAL Deerhound!...

in some show dogs ( probably introduced through other breeds into the deerhound ) livershunt or porto systemic shunt seems to occur more often - this can happen in all breeds of dogs though it seems to happen in some breeds more often than others. To put it simply: while the pups are in the womb their mother's liver cleans their blood and their own liver has time to develop and is bypassed by a big bloodvessel which will close at birth. If this shunt doesn't close at birth the pups develop properly as long as they are suckling but as soon as they are on solids their liver can't cope with the strain and they might be very weak - especially after a feed of high protein food ( red meat ). And then the pup will eventually die. If all pups in the litter develop the same and none of them is the really lazy one and doesn't come out to play especially after a good feed of meat then you should be ok, but to be on the safe side your vet can always do a test of bile acids in the bloodstream and that will give you certainty. But if you have a very active, properly developed pup at 10 or 12 weeks the chances are minute that it has liver shunt. And to top that : we are breeding coursing and show deerhounds for nearly 10 years in Ireland and I have not seen one case of it yet.
After seeing Shanes pups this weekend i can't imagine them having it.
Lovely babies Shane!!!!
