Hi all,

For a while now i have pondered on the idea of what cross would suit me best as an all rounder, something that would be strong, have plenty of guts, prey drive, stamina, ability to turn and with lungs to lamp all night and do it well.

I have asked peoples opinions in the past on this subject and found that alot of people

had the same idea on here or had seen this breeding in action and couldn't fault it. I have also seen this cross in action and know the prey drive that they bring to the game.

I have a 58ths grey 38ths bull, (in the right of my pic) a game dog day and night, and a well bred saluky greyhound bitch bred by paul roberts off this site, both are very good at what they do and iv always like'd the idea of what they would bring to the table so i decided to breed a litter of pups and keep one Dog back for myself. Pups are due in a few days and will be 10 months old by next october so a really good time to start him on the lamp. A few mates have put names forward for pups which im happy with because id love to hear how each one comes on in the future. whats everyones thoughts on this breeding once again??. No stupid comments or arguments on this one please. hha hha

anyone with pics or stroies of the cross welcome to put them up

thanks

there a nice cross,but it would be hard to find a good f1 saluki ghound,i would sooner use a well bred well tested coursing dog,there a few of them about......

they make decent lamp dogs.im only into edible game really and my saluki bull grey does that very well. very true in what you say with hit and miss on charlie as sometimes mine gives 100% on them and

that dog is a topper...

Should be handy dogs mate

 

I really like this cross and was hoping to get a dog after Christmas I may go for a saluki bull grey I'm not too sure yet lol

 

I know a few lads with this cross great alround dogs they do their jobs well if properly trained

 

Atb with the pups when they arrive keep us updated on their progress

they look spot on, and i think it could be a good x for most quarry. The only thing i have heard is that some s/b/g can be a bit hit+miss with old charlie, where as straight bullxs are more better for that.? I suppose all pups are differnt, so you never know .? I do like the x and parents look sound :thumbs:

saw a few nice ones , whats there coats like for the real cold winter and feet like and not to much bully muscle , so they dont get strains ,when i bred alitter i think feet durability wind , clever dogs etc i think quart to eight is enough in most dogs to cacth game and odd fox pre ban , saw small beddie crosses game on fox , and colie type be good for big game with extra power on jaws but you have to get them doing it singls so its not a mess,pre ban would be a handy cross and saw afew in ninties

      I’m looking for some advice as we recently rescued a whippet lurcher mix. She’s extremely friendly and sociable with dogs and people but is constantly biting and grabbing our older dogs legs, ears and neck. He’s s cavachon and doesn’t really care for playing or interacting with other dogs so he rarely snaps or growls at her when she starts. He’ll just stand there looking at us or try to run away. She’s never been aggressive towards him and regularly try’s to protect him if other dogs get rough with him. However she’s constantly biting at him when he starts barking or when’s she too excited. We separate her and tell her no but so far it’s not working and he’s doing little to tell her to stop. My worry is he’s much smaller then her and that she might accidentally hurt him if we weren’t there to stop it. Is this common Lurcher behaviour and any suggestions? Thanks

      Well lads I’m just looking for some advice on my pup if anyone can help he was jumping against a wall and fell awkwardly on his back right leg there was a little squeal nothing much out of him but he has it held up since and is limping around he’s in good enough form he try’s to run around with other lurcher but I checked it and felt it out nothing is broken that I can tell but when I motion the leg and give it a stretch inwards and outward it hurts him??

      Hello to all.
      I would like some help with our lurchers coat. Luna is 3 this year, her Mum was a Border Collie x Whippet (merle) her Dad a Whippet x Greyhound (Non-Merle). I think she has the harlequin merle modifier gene, I don't think she is double merle, her Dad was not cryptic as far as we can tell. She has no helth issues eyesight excellent and her hearing is as selective as any lurcher. 
      She is a stunning wee dog, very unique markings, great temperament.
      Any help appreciated.

      Anyone ever worked a deaf lurcher by any chance?..reason behind the question is I’ve bred a retired dog to a Merle bitch an I took my pup from it the biggest of the lot black and white with two ice blue eyes but I’ve noticed he can’t hear anything bangs or anything like that there’s only a odd reaction to some stuff but his eyesight is 100% very good eyes. I’m just curious because it’s all I have from this old dog and I was thinking could I use the pup lamping and out with terriers any info be [BANNED TEXT]. The father was not Merle only mother...

      Help Required as to ancestry /history of my saluki /Greyhound. 
      I have just lost my dog of a lifetime to cancer, she was 11/12 yrs old.I am truly heartbroken. 
      I'm not a hunter,but have always loved sight hounds in particular salukis.
      My dog Fern was a very distinguishable sighthound ,her colouring alone a mutated dilute. Was quite a show stopper. I'd have people literally stopping cars to ask what she was as she held herself well and looked awesome. 
      She was Steel and tan with a white butterfly on chest. White tips on feet. 
      Fur like velvet and shone.
      A glamourous looking dog.
      She passed through I believe 5 lurcher men before coming to me age around 4 yrs. 
      I had her 8 yrs. 
      I have  sketchy details of her young life and know she was initially used as a racing dog and then a lampers dog. Until she hurt her spine and broke a toe.  
      Fern was born around 2009,lived in North East England (Northumberland).
      I believe she had two litters of puppies (do you have one?)
      Lived Winlaton, Mickley,Prudhoe , Ryton, Greenside, Horsley.
      I believe her father (sire) may of being khan jihad. 
      I believe her mother (dam) was a steel greyhound and was a Irish coursing champion.  
      Does anyone know who that might be?
      Who bred Fern?
      Does her heritage fit time scale wise?
      I would dearly love to know as I said, totally in bits at her loss. 
      I just want to try and recreate her or seek out someone who might be able too from same lineage. 
      Whilst I'm not a hunter, I turned Fern from huntress to helper in that I used her skills and abilities to bring deer out to me to photograph, as I'm a professional photographer. We were quite a team. 
      I just loved everything about that girl.
      Thanks for any help received.
