Pure Greyhounds

Anyone any pictures of working greyhounds past or present? Soon as this bitch gets tracking and retrieving I'll post a few days out hopefully 

I was told to go for the racing greyhounds for breeding lurcher rather than the coursing as they don’t have too heavy of a frame and less injury prone. Don’t know if there’s much truth in it but it’s worth a thought

That wouldn't be true mate race dogs get injured just as much as coursing dogs, dame to my pup was retired too brood as a young bitch because of a leg injury I take my bitch over all types of terrain since day 1 too toughen the tendons around her feet and teach her to watch where she is going so far she hasn't had any injuries

Only thing i have found when seeing pure greyhounds work is how easily their skin seems to rip or tear , my brother had a blue greyhound bitch from Ireland about 27tts she was very game the first deer she ran she took over it in the field thinking it was a game, few nights out rabbiting and she clicked and had massive amounts of drive poor bitch killed herself running into a tree in her second season but she would have been well worth breeding constantly catching anything before a single turn

I think it depends on what you want to bred from her.

The lad I got my bedy greyhound from only keeps Irish coursing dogs and bedlington terriers ,he as two g,hounds .He said they both good bitches and do well against the coursing hounds the pakies are running .

if I was looking to breed firstx i would look for Irish coursing blood or a distance track dog,

plenty of lads lasses have worked greyhounds with success on all uk game and bigger.

i see a old lady that walks two x track dogs along bridle way that cuts through large estate and while she keeps to path her hounds are always looking for a run and they have had few hares and dealt with fox no problem.

im sure folk have had pups and schooled them like a lurcher to make them alrounders .

the g,hound gives so much more than speed to a lurcher,

Greyhounds been used to make lurchers from the start ,they put speed ,size,p drive into a x .if greyhound was only putting speed into a lurcher then might as well just stick to whippet .just my opinion .

Problem is a whippet gases out when the greyhound is just getting going. 

Prob best starting with a good proven grew to start a lurcher line. 

Do love the greyhound thou there speed and there prey drive are hard to beat
