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 😆

      Just got this stunning little bitch, nearly 12 months old, Deerhound x Bedie grey.
      I used to go out with my dad's Lurchers when I was a kid but I'm a female in my 30's now and struggling to get back into the swing of things.
      I'd love to have this girl knocking down bunnies but I just don't know where to start, I've barely seen a rabbit or and other quarry since I moved here.
      Any of you experts in my area fancy giving me some advice/practical experience (hunting related only)

      Some of you may remember back in March 21 I had my bitch spayed and a lump removed from her teats.
      Another lump has formed and after having a biopsy the result is that it's deffo cancer. 😢 
      Vet says we're looking at about a grand to treat/remove it with no guarantee of success.
      She will be 12 in about 6 weeks.
      I'm monitoring the size and if it's growing quickly it's gonna be a PTS scenario but I'm of the mind to see how she goes over the summer and let her get some sun on her back and then PTS, obviously if she's feeling it I'll do the deed sooner.
      f***ing dogs eh?
      Cheers, D.

      I stopped over at mums and seeing some nostalgia posts appearing in the forum thought I'd take a few pics of photos she has of collie lurchers I had in late 70s and 80s. I am indebted to her for helping me out on those occasions when work or landlords meant I couldn't keep dogs from time to time. She had a soft spot for lurchers and always had a rescue or 2 as well.
      I still have a first cross collie and they rate each other. He remembers where she stashes old dog toys and leads her on a tour of the house to collect them up each visit. Sadly at 91 and with Alzheimer's she can no longer have a dog, nice to see when I took along my whippet pup they bonded straight away 😀

      What do folk use for keeping their dogs at the height of cleanliness? 
      Mostly talking about ears here, the amount of gunk that seems to build up resulting in all night head shaking is phenomenal. 
      How cropped are you keeping nails? Best tooth and gum care?
      Seems not to be a topic but I know everybody is keeping their dogs in top condition

      Hello, would just like a few pointers from the more experienced members than me on the best way or their particular methods of breaking terriers to livestock? I have a relative that keeps poultry on an allotment that would let me take my pup through, but he’s 5 months now and like most working bred terriers he’s feisty and excited by fur and feather. I wouldn’t want any nasty mistakes to happen so any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
