Coursing mad are your borders earth dogs or just for mouching about at rats and such,genuine question, also what percentage of working stock would you have from a litter, working as in digging dogs. They look like workers compared to some of the stuff you see nowadays paraded around rings.we had a couple down the years, 1 was bought as a pup, turned out a really good little bitch, unfortunately lost to poison on a shoot, and another was a working dog we also bought, he was a very steady dog to dig to  most of the time, he died after a really tough long dig,he pushed to tight and couldn't keep out of harm's way, died the following day. I also seen one that came from a pet home because it had a hatred for cats, it was brought on a Friday and 1st day in the field was Sunday morning and he was dug, and went on to be a really good dog, again unfortunately he climbed out of his pen and into a  lurcher and that was him,always liked the  look of the borders, great to see people still with them.

As a rule the bitches I prefer all ways seem to want more work than the dogs 

Any border dogs I had the pleasure to work over were hard brutes, and the we bitch I owned was a cracking dog to own quiet as a mouse in the garden but a psycho on Fox, I’d love another like her
