Banjo looks to have nice length to his back ,but there’s something about jake that makes him stand out more to me ,an it’s not the merle colouring as I prefer the typical pied/collie  colouring.

Hi,.yes I liked Jake as a pup,..he was ultra friendly and seemed to have inherited all the tractable qualities from his Border Collie ancestry (this does not necessarily occur when using herding blood):yes:...some are bright, others not so ...

I don't keep males in my yard, so I sent him up to North Wiltshire to an old pal, who just needed a robust type of cur, for a bit of mouching.

I have never been out with the dog, .hopefully, he has provided some fun for his owner...

His sister, Swifty is a handy wee rabbiter though...👍

Tell us a bit more about them Shepp. Given that they're more collie than grey what's their speed like?

They were bred by Collie John who had the mother which was the 3/4 reversed. But I don’t think he will mind me telling you that she was a bit of a special dog, very racy, like nothing I have seen before. They didn’t lack speed,  probably faster that most 1st crosses.

Sadly my one died during an operation a few weeks back, she reacted badly to the anaesthetic, never had a sick day in her life and was really fit and healthy. My wife, mum and nephews were in pieces, she was a very good and protective dog, would’t take her eye off my nephews when out with them. Sadly missed.

Hi John, sad to hear, their mum didn’t make old age either, as a mid sized healthy cross breed I was expecting her to well out live my bedlington? But I guess a bad reaction to anaesthetic is quite a random thing on her part.

She had a good life here, bonded with my mum from a pup so I was always second, but great  family dog. If I live somewhere a bit rural I may get another collie grey  one day, a lot of dog in a fifteen kg package.

Something with gsd and/or whippet, would be my guess 🙂. Have to say mind, I agree with him in some ways. Most of the better lurchers I've ever seen had whippet blood in them, especially some of the grey/collie/whippet types 👍

I agree with him as well to a degree but just more surprised at the outburst tbh

      What age should i start training my 9 week old pup
    • By MagyarAgar
      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!
