It doesnae matter if it's done under a horse or no. As long as thepups are born healthy. Ā£25 sounds pretty damĀ reasonable for a good working sire.

Well, I've heard, probably on here too, that Deerhounds strike prey differently than a whippet say and are likely not much good for the rabbits that have undermined a few of the houses around me.

Or a deerhound fendog meaning deer/grey by fendog. I'm guessing you might not know what a fendog is so it's a dog bred from generations of dogs that run hare well and is mostly saluki and greyhound with other bits and pieces way back in the breeding. This'll add drive and running sense. ( look at the "Alan Sankey" thread to see what one looks like).

Aye, they seem handy.Ā  I'll have a read of that Alan Sankey thread.

true,Ā  better of with nice lurcher x lurcher, alot of ladsĀ  on here breed good working stuff, and even if you dont work it , it still more healthy and more brain tha pure deerhound, i like deerhounds , they have nice temps . but like most big dogs they got fair few health probs . a lurcher =Ā  hybridĀ  x bred dogĀ  100%Ā better chooseĀ  , and be lot more cheaper to buy for a start .!

Makes total sense for a working dog.Ā  BTW Alsatian Greyhound seems a good cross.Ā  Does he run cunning on the rabbits or has he got a lot of speed still. Alsatians are still fast.

Dave Platts the man I would go too, he has a very healthy line of deerhound with plenty of fire in them I believe.

Where would I contact the guy for the details and could I use a transport service?

Sounds good mate lol. Yeah I've been a bit of a gin convert the last few years. Had some sloe gin about 35Ā years ago which my ex brother in law made, not good šŸ¤¢. The very mention of the word 'gin' would see me nearly wretching for several years after lol. But the last few years, I do actually enjoy gin šŸ‘

Beinn An Tuirc Gin is a newer Gin local to Argyll, quite new, quite good, postage cost not bad, webpage o' the same name.Ā Ā

so not a deerhound then like the bloke asked for or a predominately deerhound bred long dog but a courseing long dog that generations ago started of as a deerhound greyhound long dog thatā€™s been watered down over generations with saluki greyhound coursing dogĀ an had other bits an bobs added to the mix but still as the title of deerhound long dogĀ šŸ¤·šŸ»ā€ā™‚ļø Surly you mean just a coursing bitza of no discript type bar saluki greyhound typeĀ 

Surely it should never be about what one man wants but what others know he should have šŸ™„

I had a first cross deerhound greyhound up until a few years back . Got him a 18 months old as he didn't get on with the previous owners Alsatian dog . He was a fair lump of a dog and absolutely friggin useless at anything at first . He did however gradually get better , he was never going to be a great dog but he was half decent after I put some work into him .

It was actually good to watch him on rabbits as his technique was entirely different from my other lurcher I had at the time , it's right they cant corner but once going straight he could really shift and he would just swoop in and snatch rabbits up without really slowing down .

They are very slow to mature and he needed a firm hand , never liked other Male dogs but did give me hours of pleasure and he tried hard to please , which is all I could of asked for .

Really tall dogsĀ like deerhoundsĀ and their crosses are usually naturally very fast if theyĀ have a real good strike they can straight line a lot of quarry and scoop them up before they know whats going on, its good to watch. The problems start when quarry is twisting, jinking and making the dog over shoot, even if the dog is super fit a few missed strikes and over shoots of 20 to 30 yards soon slows the dog down long enough for the quarry to make good its escape, if the dog is not fit they fade really quick usually after one or two missed strikes again making the quarrys escape much easier.

fair point joe, with tall dogs , i know thisĀ  sounds daft even though BuckĀ  28in 90 lb ,Ā  even if over runs stuff, he get back on track quick , he like bryn like that both have good pace/agilty , as said collies and gsdĀ  are both like that .

he picks rabbits up easy, his best bagĀ  38 in the lamp, your right alsatians Ā are naturally fast dogs, so stick running dog in the mix, there that more quicker. with my big dog he covers the ground quick, with his long stride, he on his quarry quite quick . in my mind there like big collie x greys , and colliexs are fast and agile lurchers. what i love about my big dog , is the way smashes through cover after quarry, it great to seeĀ  for such big dog, had cracking walk in the woods early on ,Ā  both him and old bryn , little woody lol full 1hour .15 minsĀ  Ā on the go , both panting heavy when back to motorĀ  great walk

He maybe able to get back on track quickĀ but the energy he uses to do it eventually adds up to make the night shorter and the bagĀ not asĀ full at the end of the night.
