Pics Of Your Bushing Dogs

A very nice photograph of a cracking stamp of terriers. The dog on the extreme left in particular. Hound ears, linty coat, crooked legs and a strong jaw. Ugly I suppose by present standards, no, not ugly. Full of character and fit for purpose. I find it a little ironic that this type lost favour but Teckles, a physically very similar type seems to be gaining popularity. Not sure what the German dog can do that the working Sealyham could not. Maybe availability, a Catch 22 situation, not much working Sealyham blood around so they are not being worked, not being worked and so the blood available becomes less as the years pass. Anyway, thank you for sharing the photograph.

does hp still breed the sealyhams my mrs wanted one a few year ago after seeing them in a magazine i contacted hp haha christ 2 and a half grand for a pup and a waiting list....

I do not know HP but I am aware of him same as yourself I suppose, through the write ups (free advertising? ) in the feildsport press. £2.5K for a pup does seem extreme. Playing devil's advocate, is he spending time, which is money, on trying to establish a healthy working "type" of Sealyham Terrier? Are surplus pups produced during this process offered to "outsiders" at a price to deter messers or opportunists? I know from personal experience that when surplus pups that very rarely become available to an outsider the initial quoted price is not the actual price. By the time pups were born and checks were made on progress over weeks the cash was handed over  almost all of it was given back.

Or is it a cash cow? Some Sealyham x Russells on Pets4homes being offered at £600 at present.

i hears a few years ago HP sealyhams were £ 900-1000 a pup so if the 2.5k is true thats one hell of a inflated price increase

Would you consider her good enough to breed from and if so what would you put over her

That the fella in devon who runs the sillyham pack,had them up threshing with us once and what a pile of shite they are.the only dogs with them that caught a rat were the ruseel x sillyham's and they needed holding and chucking at the fleeing rats.There were around a dozen dogs with him that day and my old plummer bitch caught most of the 100 odd rats we had that day...Utter trash and i deleted all the pics of them i took that day as they weren't worth memory space....

The footage I've seen was a disappointment. Slow mo, just going through the motions, and making heavy weather of it
