I have just acquired a gorgeous lurcher bitch at now 10 months. We are a couple who love mountain biking and walking/ running around the countryside and therfore her breed seems perfect in that she has that endless ability to run...however ...we had an incident yesterday with sheep which took us by surprise (in that we weren't expecting sheep and she was off the lead). She went into a 'deaf' chase. Awful, embarrassing and if a farmer had been there he would/ should have shot her. She did not catch anything/ draw blood etc, but it is something we absolutely need to stop in her.
