Lad I got my bitch from had his bedy tested for copper t ,all breeders should have pups tested but I never herd occurred lurcher having it ?

I had a 1st cross bitch about 8/10 year ago. Do not know if it was copper t. but at about 6 month she started having fits/seizures, had her checked over by the vet who said she was healthy. (i didn't know about the copper t then). I ended up giving her to an old lady as a pet at about 18 month old as it became apparent the exertion/excitement were triggering these episodes more frequently. If i had known about it then i would have had her tested because having now heard of copper t. I've often wondered.

Been thinking about the nose on beddies for a while. I'm speculating here, as no-one really seems to know, could the nose come from some type of spanish, italian or whatever, water dog?  Lagotto romagnolo, portuguese water dog etc. Beddies look very similar to some of these types, and are good in water, good nose, similar type coats. 

And the types I mean were the ones before the KC breeding ruined them.

Maybe from its otter hound ancestors

Could well be mate. I just find it more than interesting that beddies, and the breeds I mentioned, are a similar size, have similar coats, are good in water, and have great noses.

I know otterhounds have some of those characteristics, but they are much bigger, and 3 times the weight of a beddy, but the other breeds are all very similar in size, coat, colour etc to beddies.

I might be way off the mark, but it's an interesting theory. 👍

All the lurchers when I started out were all whippetey /collie types and were all used for rabbits/ rats and there were some handy dogs amongst them , the lurchers started getting bigger with the new lamping craze I came into beddys by being gifted a half x beddy/grey 6 month old bitch by a lad leaveingthe country I was so impressed with its nose and drive i been smitten since even switched from Russell’s which I still think are the smartest and easiest entered terrier to pure beddy terriers so is it just a individual thing as I’ve seen good and bad lurcher and terriers a of all crosses , but one thing with beddys they don’t fecking sulk or bear a grudge 😀
