    Minshaw dogs

    Most of the hares I've run were lamped but some of the daywalkers I've seen don't think anything of a kick up or strangely always have a pup to start in the summer

    New Arrivals.

    I've seen a 3/4 reverse bred collie greyhound take hundreds up the dales plenty fast enough she was no good local on the lamp but took loads of bolters local to me he knew her limitations and worked her to suit her style, she took fox as well single handed the farm collie sometimes came with us and he took loads of stuff on the moors and blocks of woodland he really was good for bolters near woods no fear would just plough in and grab them never seen him run stuff on open sets though
