Temptation

just wondered if they are to be trusted bushing ,off the lead.

If they are going to ground ,especially on rabbits.

I mean if a dog consistently goes to ground,it can be managed .....as a digging dog . But if it goes once in a while ,it can get sticky.

I know dogs small enough will go if on hot scent.

As I say as dog that does it now and then is worse than a dog that never does or does all the time.

My Russell could be trusted around rabbit holes and would Mark,but would stay on other stuff ,

A dog what does all the time would certainly be worse for me than a dog what does now and again.

 

She drops now and again. But I can live with it.

 

Like I said in PM mate some wouldn't feed her. She's worth her weight in gold to me though.

she only has to please you so all's good .

Wasn't knocking the breed ,just genuinely interested how you'd get on with them getting to ground ,as I have had crosses go to ground and unless you want a digging dog ,I can be a mare :thumbs: :thumbs:

I know you weren't knocking them fella. It can be a problem no doubt. But one I can manage.

 

I've been toying with going down the route of large busher stroke small lurcher.

 

A mate of mine is planning a litter out of 2 dogs which are both 20" tts and solid built. They would struggle to get below ground but both bush well for their size.

 

Something like this might be worth a shot. But then I doubt they will get where the smaller terriers get.
