Lab x grey

I work cockers and believe a cocker lurcher would be a wonderful thing, it would need to be off my old dog though, still punching well above his weight at 11 he is now, I would put him to a whippet tomorrow for a pup, I once had a terrier with beagle in that caught hundreds of rabbits, when I was a kid loads of old mongrels seemed to catch rabbits.

Bet they'd make cracking fun little grafters.

I would totally agree with this , have seen plenty cracking pointers and some stunning working labs. I think even with a good working strain of lab in a lurcher cross you'd still get too many heavy pu

Proper, old school, mouching dogs, I like them well enough 😉

The Lab x collie grey I mentioned I grew up with. She knew more about the game than me at the time.

I’ve always had an interest in gun dog lurchers. Been someone that just mooches about these days I like a good biddable lurcher that is a natural hunter. There was an article in shooting news/ c m weekly years ago about a fella who had a lab x whippet called topper or something, he loved it as a one for the pot dog.

Anyway I was out with my two the other day and I came across an old bloke with his black Labrador, I’ve never seen such I lovely looking lab ( in my eyes ) sleek and racey with a more lively nature than most I’ve seen.......first thing I thought was I’d cross that with a nice big whip/grey. Anyway it was from a strain called Pocklea.....it was stunning.

I love my springer lurcher and can understand why some people would be tempted with a gundog lurcher. I think you really have to know what you want from your lurcher to step away from a lurcher x lurcher. It really is a case of swings and roundabouts.

I went down this route because I was fed up of my dogs spending just as much time walking the same path as me rather than hunting for something. Some of the best game finding dogs I’ve worked haven’t been lurchers.....Christ my old fashioned jrt caught more rabbits than some of my lurchers and she was tiny and slow, but a very satisfying and rewarding dog to work.

 

How's your lurcher bred?

I just can’t see what a lab would bring to the mix in a lurchers and I’ve worked labs for over 20 years .....there’s a lot better breeds that offer more 

As for drakeshead that dog must of lined thousands of bitches if all the pedigrees were to be believed

I've never seen a lab x pointer work, but can imagine they would have potential to be very good. I know several gwp, they are hard but headstrong which may or may not be a good thing depending on what you are looking for in the x. You might lose the biddability of the lab if it were 1/2 grey 1/4 gwp?

Seen plenty pointer x labs there not as good as what a pure lab does and not as good as a pure pointer but can be handy animals on the hill in a beating line .......I’ve never saw one that I wanted to own though but seen plenty of labs and GWPs I would love to have in my kennels
