    3 Legged Worker

    That's the plan FD I'm hopeful it may come good enough not to amputate anyway the cast is of since last night. Just have to give a few days now and hope he starts to put weight on it and when he does that it does not dislocate again and if so it will be amputated from the knuckle joint down. He might not have ever even made the grade but they deserve the chance to see what they are made of at least.

    It is the back leg alright just the knuckle up from the paw and I see both sides of it how it should be fine and how it can get him into bother maybe in tight spots. I've moved clay over him once already before the accident so I think maybe I'll give him a chance before bitten the bullet and maybe his leg will come good anyway please god, but I'll see how he gets on good or bad next season maybe pick holes not so deep and I'll let lads know incase they encounter the same situation . Thanks for the replies

    An odd question but I have a 18 MTH old terrier that got a bit high strung amongst cattle and ended up with 2 fractures and a dislocation. The vet has done his best to patch it up but if its not such good news when cast is off and won't come right which is a 50/50 chance I have a decision to make which is lying on my head for weeks now . There is the option of amputation. One day I'm thinking it surely can't work with just 3 legs and the other day I wonder. So if anyone has worked a 3 legged terrier TO GROUND it would be interesting to know.

    It's the very same as saying an Irish man don't drink. He is telling you lies but also telling lies to himself

    I'd say Ace it's like alot a Peds, people can put 2 and 2 together and come to the conclusion this must not be right because he said this but Joe said that and that can't be right because Jimmy said that Tom said it was something else.

    Full Springer or Cocker

    I did a fair bit a bushing for fox when starting out enjoyed it alot but it's a while now it was enjoyable but we had a mix of everything from some going to far away to some teagles going to ground. I suppose it is the spaniel type style hunting I was on about and just wanting to know had anyone hunted the full bred spaniel and how would they be rated Cocker or Springer on fox alone working as a small outfit as to a modest amount of bushing dogs.

    Full Springer or Cocker

    I did get a beagle X spaniel puppies here a few months back but he unfortunately got poisoned and I couldn't save him. My only fear for not going for the same cross is with the beagle in the mix would it also travel a bit far ahead. I'm looking for something to stay relatively close I'll will getting 2. Just curious to opinions what would suit my type a bushing small coverts and double ditches that would be hard to get into

    Full Springer or Cocker

    Anyone use just a full Cocker or full Springer for bushing fox mostly. I'm well aware of the terrier crosses work great but do the full breeds work just as good.

    IMO you do not need a litter every year if so then you have too many terriers that you cannot work week in week out and see what you really and truly have unless you get an awfully lot a digging. People who breed so often either sell or have not been so happy with the last litter

    R.H I only breed from the best in my yard I don't have a covahor belt of pups every year so to me it makes sense to breed from my best terrier but if a man feels the need to breed every year he ain't producing to a high standard

    Unfortunately that comes with the game it's a game of its and buts what I can't stand is the boys breeding for money and using this excuse """o well his brother is bred the same way so it should prosper " the way I see it breed your best dogs in the yard ya can't do any better than that.

    I'm not here to criticize anyone but would you not breed from your best dog I would and I think I respect my other terrier by digging them as often as possible but I will always stand by breeding form the best in my yard. I will never look down on my dogs but no 1 will be put over number 1 not number 2 but as you said once there in the end you could class them all number 1 but when I look at a terrier a particular one probably just takes my fancy maybe the next man would prefer the dog in the next kennel it all comes down to opinion.
