She looks like she can hold her own mate and in good nick by the look of it credit to you atb longers01 

She’s not worried by anything in life. A simple, happy dog that loves her job. I’d have her again happily. Also the easiest dog I’ve ever trained.

For over 40 years now I've kept collie crosses and still like them a lot. A few years ago one of my sons got a bull terrier and I found him surprisingly intelligent and responsive.I now have a 10 month old pup with 1/4 pit in him and he too is very bright and responsive though in a different way to my collie crosses.

As a man with a lot of experience of collies, how would you say the 2 breeds compare as lurcher breeding material.

No she's not but she had been in 2 homes by the time she was 9 months old through no fault of her own, lads who owned her both had a littermate to her & both chose to keep the other so I gave her a home as I didn't want to see her on the dog merry go round especially without seeing what she could do, she was a little nervy initially but me being her 3rd owner without her breeder by the time she was 9 months old was quite understandable,she's grand now though, she has the same dam as two other relatively young dogs I have here in Bear & Rose, sadly Bear broke his neck out working in December but I've not given up on the dog & although the first 6 weeks after his accident were stressful to say the least as I never went to bed at all in that time,I had to turn him every two hours, twenty four hours per day to stop him getting bed sores but he still did regardless,I had to hand feed him & syringe water down him, obviously he was having to lie in and amongst his own pee & crap as he couldn't move as he was paralysed..we had to learn him to stand initially then learn him to walk again, he spent more time in a heap than on his feet..7 months later he's still here,he wont ever be right but i like the dog & even towards the season end he accompanied me on a couple of mountain adventures & although he had to rely on his old man to do the catching it was great to see he still had the enthusiasm & desire to get stuck in 😁..life with lurchers never runs as smooth as you like,im sure we can all agree on that one!

 

This is Bear recently, he is still a very fast dog, can jump gates, fences etc but turning will never be his strong point since his accident,he's 5/8 Grey 3/16 Bull & 3/16 Saluki

That is a quality photo. Looks a right machine!

Please don't take this the wrong way. If he was that good and an injury stopped him would you not stud him for a pup?

Hats off to you for keeping him going. Many, if not most, would have PTS on diagnosis of a broken neck. Most of the remainder would've opted out on the realisation of having to turn him every 2hrs of a night. Well done fella, credit to you.👍👍👍

Have you still got Don mate and are your lads still into the dogs?

Cheers, D.

Hey up D fella, aye old Don is still here bud 😁,he's in grand order,still thinks he's a pup although his next birthday will be his 12th, he has a litter of pups on the ground that will be starting away this season, so be good to see how they go..aye all my lads are still going 100% strong with the dogs bud, terriers & lurchers is all they are about D..they've been really successful at what they do so much so that word of mouth through the farming and landowners community has seen them amass large swathes of permission throughout the county to be able to work their dogs..in this day & age that in itself has been worth all the time & effort they've put into the game..my grandkids are even going out with the lurchers now 😁..i've brainwashed the lot of them mate 😆

      Help Required as to ancestry /history of my saluki /Greyhound. 
      I have just lost my dog of a lifetime to cancer, she was 11/12 yrs old.I am truly heartbroken. 
      I'm not a hunter,but have always loved sight hounds in particular salukis.
      My dog Fern was a very distinguishable sighthound ,her colouring alone a mutated dilute. Was quite a show stopper. I'd have people literally stopping cars to ask what she was as she held herself well and looked awesome. 
      She was Steel and tan with a white butterfly on chest. White tips on feet. 
      Fur like velvet and shone.
      A glamourous looking dog.
      She passed through I believe 5 lurcher men before coming to me age around 4 yrs. 
      I had her 8 yrs. 
      I have  sketchy details of her young life and know she was initially used as a racing dog and then a lampers dog. Until she hurt her spine and broke a toe.  
      Fern was born around 2009,lived in North East England (Northumberland).
      I believe she had two litters of puppies (do you have one?)
      Lived Winlaton, Mickley,Prudhoe , Ryton, Greenside, Horsley.
      I believe her father (sire) may of being khan jihad. 
      I believe her mother (dam) was a steel greyhound and was a Irish coursing champion.  
      Does anyone know who that might be?
      Who bred Fern?
      Does her heritage fit time scale wise?
      I would dearly love to know as I said, totally in bits at her loss. 
      I just want to try and recreate her or seek out someone who might be able too from same lineage. 
      Whilst I'm not a hunter, I turned Fern from huntress to helper in that I used her skills and abilities to bring deer out to me to photograph, as I'm a professional photographer. We were quite a team. 
      I just loved everything about that girl.
      Thanks for any help received.
