Whirrier's

Recommended Posts

For me this cross has 2 faults , prone to being deaf and lack stamina for covering big open marsh land and denses woods , how do ur whiriers do for stamina?

 

Mine's not lacking in stamina - she'll go all day if given the chance.

No problem with stamina on mine but can have selective hearing, needs a stern voice at times

I would think if u pick a big dog pup from a litter from a good whippet bitch and hard terrier dog u could end up with a small alrounder maybe 21tts and 35 pound it should be able to track shot roe retrieve odd fox n hare and be consistant on rabbits what do u lads think?

Yes as sometimes this can only be a bad thing with a fox heading for a busy road.

This is a problem with most running dogs or dogs with high prey drive not just whirriers we all know the chances we take with these dogs

All my dogs have abundance of drive but i can still call them off a hot scent but once the quarry is spotted not much chance

I can call them off a hot scent but as said once sighted they only have tunnel vision to catch

Ostly just a pure whippet father to the whirrier but my daughter also has the brother to the whippet and the brother to the whirrier but that one is a different kettle of fish, good length on him and a bit quicker than mine also a saluki lurcher plus I might aswell say before I get pulled up again about it an Italian greyhound that thinks it's a full size greyhound
