What’s you lads opinion on the best all rounder? A dog you’d expect to take all pre ban quarry. Put meat in the freezer and give the local fox population some problems. The best dog I’ve personally seen is my mates bitch, she’s saluki greyhound x deerhound greyhound, I’ve seen her take everything. Basically if you could only have one dog at your side, what would it be?

Cheers lads

spot on ,:thumbs:   if i ever get another lurcher , when ever  old Bryn kicks the bucket   lol, thats what i go for , something as big as old Bryn  25in 60 lb  , he is 1x collie x grey , so he got good coat,feet, not bad stamina  knock 30 over in a night  , not a fox dog solo but  double up , great in the day marking birds/ rabbits , so for something like him but  say 1/4 pit in there to just put bit more guts for old charlie  . so basically  collie x grey x bull x grey   , but getting this type x be hard as not many lads breed  them , but that's what i think would  like  .:yes:

Do you find them a bit heavy for hares? 

Not many hares nor deer round here mate but they can catch hares not coursing dogs tho, for foxs and Rabbits they are well suited to what I do

Just for future reference, if I do ask silly questions, I’m a newbie trying to learn some stuff and get a gauge of what dogs people are running 😁👍🏻

The litter me and busher have are all over the country.they've flushed hare,tracked 4 species of deer and retrieved fox and caught rabbits in the day,ferreted and lamped.all by 10 months,not too bad i thought.but then lots of different x's are doing it also.

No such thing as a best all rounder it's just personnal prefrence.

      Hi everybody,
      I am a long time lurker of this forum and found a lot of good information here.
      This is my first lurcher pup and I (obviously) think she is coming along nicely. She is a Whippet x German Pinscher (the mating was more of an accident, but I know both parents and they are wonderful).
      I am from Germany so please beware that I am not allowed to work her here legally...
       
      Feel free to ask any questions you might have and have a good day!
