  1. I don't think you have heartworm over there but a cough is a symptom after exercise.I lost a whippet bitch to a grass seed in the lung,common thing with dog's here.
  2. Thanks mate,I've been thinking of one more and I don't think you'd get better dogs here.Do you know if any are spoken for and if there are dogs and bitches.The old blue bitch I have,apart from being the best hunting dog I've owned, has literally saved my life twice,very loyal and brave animals.Are the dogs as easy to live with as the bitches.
  3. Any sort of quick reacting dog will be a good ferreting companion.In my experience lines or families of dogs that have been used with ferrets for generations seem to have a inbuilt bond with them and work together without much training.
  4. My mrs used to have over 10 mongrel pig dogs at a time.They would hunt together,ride in the ute and camp out bush with no problems,as soon as they got home they would try to kill each other so were all chained separately.
  5. Same as here,I don't think there are that many dog thieves, but the same trash doing multiple jobs.They need to vanish.
  6. Depends on how intense your dogs are,there's no stopping the screaming from my two Russell males when the whippets are on heat.I live on a farm, but if you have neighbours?It's not keeping them apart that's the problem imo.
  7. Hunting dogs seem to be generally a quarter or half the price of show,pet dogs everywhere.I can't see how people whinge about the price when dogs and hunting with them is your life and passion.
  8. Ahh, the good old days in my area with open warrens,most now are in blackberries or piles of barbed and rubbish,good catch by the dog.
  9. Only stupid because of the bull blood.
  10. I think your better off with a show type terrier for a young kid.I had silky terriers as a kid and they would hunt anything,top rat dogs.they would also come home and not be a pain like most hunting bred terriers are when not working.
  11. Two grand is the price of one Patterdale pup off the peddlers here in Oz so its a bargain.
  12. Ever considered a Whippet/Russell ?They never stop.
  13. I think it's ok if he gets a good Bedlington stud and a decent grey bitch but if he wants a good line he will have to keep a good few pups back each generation and pick the best of the best workers and only breed from them.I hope he's young cause its a long road and he will make f--- all money from it.
  14. Ferreting around creeks on hard ground my older bitch seems to rip one dew claw out every second trip,she tends to use them as brakes.The claws that have grown back now are tiny,don't know why.She does use them like a thumb to secure rabbits so I can see the use of them.I thought they were remnants of claws used by dog's ancient ancestors to climb.
