Here some pics of my old 3/4 greyhound 1/4 Bearded Border .He was 26 inch a grand son of Richard Jones bred by a bloke called Steve in Doncaster .In the the pics he was about 10 years old, he was a good dog ,he seemed to catch bunnies without even trying ,but had some strange habits.He's been dead 15 years now.

No the main one was he was scared of other dogs, any dog no matter how small ,if he saw a dog hundreds of yards away he would instantly start looking for an exit, but with in a mile of our house he was the opposite he would rip apart anything that looked at him the wrong way .I have seen similar in Dingo and Wolves in documentaries .When out of their turf they are cowards but when back on their turf they become brave to fight for their ground.

Not something I would expect in a domestic dog it drove me mad it was only with age he seem to grow out of it ,but not until he was about 7 or 8 years old.

He was OK with friends and relations dogs he had known a long time ,but rabbiting with any new dogs you didn't know if he was going to be timid or kick off.
