I have a whippet x Russell. He is 11 now but in his day was an awesome dog. If I could clone him to get another the same I wouldn't hesitate.

there a vid of pat x (none ped racing whippets )  and these black little dogs were brill ratters and , good on rabbits day/night, and enough guts to pile into foxes if need be , but for the latter  me self i out x again to nice mid size greyhound , then you have cracker for any quarry  they see. but just for rabbits, rats these little dogs are  1st class, if  i wanted little tough lurcher with good coat/skin/ feet   a pat x none ped whippet is what i go for .

You know how everyone has a cross or breed that they'd like to try but is a bit of a gamble so it just stays a dream? Well for me that'd be a Fell x Grey. Just a bit more pokey than the whippet cross.

One day maybe...

 

FYI, a similar thread from a while back.

ive watched a fair few beddy/whippets but just 2 russell/whippets in the 80s belonging to the same lad. Bang on ratters great marking dogs work with nets. Hit cover like little missiles and caught in cover fur/feather .Worked crappy ground disused railway banks waste land back of industrial estates etc.. They did what the lad wanted no great expectations just little mooching/ferreting/vermin dogs.

Anyone running terrier x whippets not bull or beddie , just curious as had a russel x whippet years ago 

Had a Manchester terrier x whippet years ago she was a good little mooching dog. 

Caught no end of rabbits, phesants, partridge, sqirrells, rats  a few hares and rolled the odd fox (she couldn't do em single but she wasn't a fox dog so no sleep lost). 

Her take off speed was like lightning but would fade after 100 or so yards. 

Would love another like her just for bushing and mooching about.

She died 4 years back from a stroke aged 14.

Did the terrier crosses yap a bit ? 

Mine is silent when working. Never yapped once, noisy little shit the rest of the time though. 

When we got him I was told he would be too slow for rabbits and too small for anything else. He proved that wrong time and time again
