    Turk dog

    I think they bred them oversize to look more impressive,the working Kangal's are not that huge.As said, with dangerous immigrants arriving, as here in Oz,the dogs to deal with them seem to follow.

    Kelpies as a stud,

    I said that to the mrs(from Birmingham) one time and she kicked me in the bollocks,I told her mum and she slapped me for saying bollocks.

    My mrs used to run a chiller and catch pigs for a living,they used huge mastiff/dane crosses sometimes with EBT added.The trend these days is for staghound/EBT crosses or Bull arabs(usually EBT,pointer,greyhound) line bred for pigs.Kelpies,catahoula's for bailing.She always said a dog cant be too hard for pigs.Others use anything from boxers to jack russells for blackberry work and lurcher types on open plains.The big dogs the mrs had were smart at their trade as well as very powerfull.So pig dog types vary as to terrain and choice of the owners.

    I was watching something like that on youtube the other day,they were setting big bull and pit type dogs on a tied up boar in an arena.I don't know what they achieved by this or what the point of it was but there looked to be hundreds of dogs there being dragged around by a bunch of weirdo's.

    I think Hinks really fell on his arse with these dogs,as said a lot kill their pups,they are jealous and man biters.If you have one dog as a guard and pet maybe but they are way less stable than most staffs and pitbulls with anything.

    Sounds like your dog sensed your mates fear and was protecting him,even my whippets get aggressive if they feel you are in danger of anything.

    There are lines of really big 40kg English bulls here that are bred for pigs.Years ago a thug where I lived had what he thought was a game bred EB,it walked passed the brothers Jeep dog sleeping on his chain and shrunk about 4 sizes,so game he wasn't.

    Lurchers dog or bitches

    I have always had bitches,the whippet type bitches have a slightly more wicked temp than dogs that gives them the edge imo.

    Kelpies as a stud,

    I think you will find they are mostly in Vic or Southern NSW,Riverina,not many around my area.

    I"d love to see this cross working coyote,here I think you would lose a lot hunting pigs due to size and being too game.As guard dogs I'd hate to walk into a yard with 3 or 4 on duty.
  16. If I was getting one dog,you don't want them lacking speed or you will be disappointed.
  17. 3/4 whippet 1/4 Aussie staghound,best dog I've had or seen hunting rabbits in rough scrub.My pure whippet is better on short grass.
  18. For one thing whippets are quicker and not a shot in the dark as to which breed they throw to more.
  19. Most will hunt rabbits but when you see a good one from hunting lines work and interact with the ferrets there is no comparison imo.They aren't perfect with their finer skin but once they learn to clear wire they are hard to beat and exciting to watch.
  20. Except working bred whippets know the game from genetic memory,which is a major factor in any working dog.

    Dog help... whinning!

    I know people who wouldn't have any other breed than a Russell for ferreting.The Russells I have,from denning line have no concept of ferreting and try to follow the ferrets,yap and make the trip a nightmare.I just use whippets now for ferreting and take the russells when mooching with the whippets in cover, which suits them.
  22. The best pure bred dog by a mile for all round rabbiting.

    We must have imported the cream of the crop then,seeing you think they are shivering wimps that don't catch their prey.To me they are the quickest, most athletic dog on the planet and the best pure bred dog for rabbits.

    I really don't think you have seen a hunting bred whippet work
