    Why has Hancock no pups for sale?

    The old bloke that taught me ferreting as a kid had a dog the image of this,it was a straight cross red cattle/greyhound.

    I read an interesting article the other day about a famous line of Kelpies.Most believe dingo blood was a given in this breed but DNA showed no native dog blood at all in their history.I'm sure it would have found its way into some lines though, through accidental/sneaky matings.
  3. Those little bolting Russells are what most want over here.I'd be trying to keep a line of them going,or get into digging dogs separately.By crossing with a patterdale you are just going to get inferior earth dogs or a pain in the ass bushing dog.

    Surely there is enough hunters out there breeding the odd litter to supply other hunters with a decent dog.We have had our share over here of puppy farmers of hunting dogs.Even though they were hunters themselves,they had kennels full of dogs that had never seen any work.Don't want to say who they are, but they put their names on their lines, so to me they were feeding their ego's and pockets and not classed as dog men imo.Get rid of these people and you will see less wasted dogs ending their days in the shelters and better quality dogs from genuine working parents in the field.

    Ferret Passed Away.

    Hard not to cry when a hunting partner dies.I usually shed more tears when my animals die than when people I know die.R.I.P Badger.

    Any genuine beddy whippet greyhound litters planned

    True, but finding anything like a working Bedlington here is impossible.I don't want to breed a litter of Russell/whippets to get one pup.I'm worried about getting them good homes as I'd imagine the first cross will be hard for most to handle,and not a great number of rabbiters around here,although the cross is pretty good on pigs,so still thinking about it.

    Swollen ankels

    Pregnancy knocks the hell out of some bitches,others glide through it.Same with people,light exercise helps.

    in house ferrets

    I don't keep mine in the house but I do keep my whippets inside.I think it makes them more controllable,loyal and they understand you better which equals a better hunting companion.I can't see ferrets being any different as long as they aren't chums with a pet rabbit.

    Slat mill

    A ball hanging off a tree is enough exercise and running around the yard when not out.Only a little bushing Russell but he'll come home after hunting and do this all arvo.

    Dog behaviour

    Some young dogs try it on you,nip it in the bud as said.I had a pitbull/mastiff that went for me full on 3 times at that age.He died still with me last month at age 18.Saved my ass more than once.

    Puppy attacked

    Get him out working with some other dog friendly dogs so he can associate other dogs with a good time instead of pain and aggression.He may always hate staffs as I had a pit pup attacked by two cattle dogs.As an adult she used to throw around every cattle dog she got close to.
