Its too bad yall cant get dogs from us. Id love to help you out with this project. My kinda dogs for sure except Id use one of our coyote greyhounds and are coyote hounds.

I have seen those coyote greyhounds on here I think someone posted a video with an old boy on in who kept them. To be honest there is plenty of good British stock around - just a case of finding the right ones. ATB S2H

 

Good luck. Hope ya find what you are looking for. I'm sure there are some good British stock but its just easier to find over here I would think considering we can pretty much hunt 10x more often than people in your country. We don't have any laws stopping us and some of us live in wide open spaces with a lot of game and coyotes are pretty much the ultimate quarry when it comes to a running dog of that type. I guess some would say white tail deer but you aren't gonna find a handful of dogs that could take one regularly and that is illegal so not being bred for.

 

Thanks for the input pal, I can only imagine North America would offer such a vast hunting ground but never-the-less we do o.k here in the uk. Bans or not we produce and breed dogs of the highest quality. ATB S2H

I hope ya keep this thread goin. I'm interested to see what ya find. Ive had my buddy's male dog that I bred at my place the last week just havin some fun with him. He is a stud to say the least. I don't know if I have a good picture of him these days or not but I will try and find a pic of him when he was a youngster. He stands bout 31 inch tall and weighs bout 100 plus. Monster but he can kinda run for a big dog.

My computer acted up but wanted to also say that I really like your thoughts on the cross you wanna make. I grew up with dogs like this if I haven't mentioned it before. Take care

sounds like a beast of a dog, for me I'm not after something that big if I'm honest anything 24 tts and above will do, but my preference is maybe 26/27" for an all rounder. Were hoping the deerhound blood might throw a broken coat and add some of that classic deerhound laid-back nature, as well as a nice large chest. I think deerhounds would do very well on coyotes over there they have a decent nose too for a running dog and are brave dogs.

I should emagine he wants a lurcher that has boundless stamminer along with a very good nose that can hunt up and catch the pray he hunts for

your right we do want boundless stamina!!! but I really dont want hunting up to be honest im a lamping man, but if you did it would certainly add that, Im after a solid all rounder and one thing hounds would add to go with it are is strong, driven, tough and have a great working frame.
And stubborness ha..I think your crazy doing that cross especially for lamping..cant see any hound adding anything to a well bred lurcher..but best of luck with it 🖒

legality aside, what makes them so hard to catch that only a handful of dogs can get them regularly?

His littermate sister was my gyp and she stood 27 ats and weighed about 80 pounds. I don't think the pure deerhounds would be any good at all on them. You would need some greyhound in there or else ya aint gonna catch much.

Speed and the ground they live on is wide open and rough as can be. Its just real tough to catch em is all. I'm not sayin all areas cuz I'm sure some boys have some luck but here where I live Ive never seen a dog that could really do it. None even came close to be honest not once they really decided to run.
