4 weeks ago I lost my lurcher who had just turned 10. Out for a walk and he just collapsed and couldn't stand up. Night in the vets and some treatment but there was no change after 24hrs so had to be PTS. Gutted. I'm now looking for another pup and just wandering how you boys  go about finding pups. I kind of keep myself to myself so don't really know of when pups come available. Probably look for something with some bull in it this time.  Thanks

Bother him too much, and you'd be risking a damned good clemming before the serious stuff!! 😐

best thing to do is don’t rush in to nothing mate keep your eyes an ears open something will come to your attention also I suppose it depends on what you fancy x wise and what the dog to be used for there’s not much point in going down the heavy build bull x road if you only fancy a dog to be used for a mooching about rabbiting moocher as the main job you’d probably be better waiting out for something more traditional bred that fits in well. You could always put the feelers out on here of the sort of crosses your be interested in an see if any ones planning breeding any

Cheers poxon,  great advice there. I promised myself the next lurcher I had would have bull in it but not half cross, be too much of a dog for me. Would be looking for a 1/4 bull. I miss having a lurcher but as you said no point rushing into something that's not 100% right for me.

Thanks for the offer Penda. I've got some kind of idea what I'd like this time and will wait for the right one instead of rushing into it. If it takes me 2-3 months well so be it. 

 Best way mate ,no need to rush and I'm sure you will get the pup that suits you .

I wouldnt write a halfcross off Harrial if I was you mate. If you get the right dog they are brilliant, steady but clever and very hardy. Get one that hasnt got the shy gene and with good feet and you can have years of fun, and with far less injuries than a 3/4 Greyhound type. They tend to bounce off things rather than break like a Greyhoundy type. A half x  can be lurcher to lurcher for many generations as long as it keeps the type, athletic but strong with drive. Youll get better hunting with a half cross aswell. Good luck anyway.

      Anyone ever worked a deaf lurcher by any chance?..reason behind the question is I’ve bred a retired dog to a Merle bitch an I took my pup from it the biggest of the lot black and white with two ice blue eyes but I’ve noticed he can’t hear anything bangs or anything like that there’s only a odd reaction to some stuff but his eyesight is 100% very good eyes. I’m just curious because it’s all I have from this old dog and I was thinking could I use the pup lamping and out with terriers any info be [BANNED TEXT]. The father was not Merle only mother...

      Help Required as to ancestry /history of my saluki /Greyhound. 
      I have just lost my dog of a lifetime to cancer, she was 11/12 yrs old.I am truly heartbroken. 
      I'm not a hunter,but have always loved sight hounds in particular salukis.
      My dog Fern was a very distinguishable sighthound ,her colouring alone a mutated dilute. Was quite a show stopper. I'd have people literally stopping cars to ask what she was as she held herself well and looked awesome. 
      She was Steel and tan with a white butterfly on chest. White tips on feet. 
      Fur like velvet and shone.
      A glamourous looking dog.
      She passed through I believe 5 lurcher men before coming to me age around 4 yrs. 
      I had her 8 yrs. 
      I have  sketchy details of her young life and know she was initially used as a racing dog and then a lampers dog. Until she hurt her spine and broke a toe.  
      Fern was born around 2009,lived in North East England (Northumberland).
      I believe she had two litters of puppies (do you have one?)
      Lived Winlaton, Mickley,Prudhoe , Ryton, Greenside, Horsley.
      I believe her father (sire) may of being khan jihad. 
      I believe her mother (dam) was a steel greyhound and was a Irish coursing champion.  
      Does anyone know who that might be?
      Who bred Fern?
      Does her heritage fit time scale wise?
      I would dearly love to know as I said, totally in bits at her loss. 
      I just want to try and recreate her or seek out someone who might be able too from same lineage. 
      Whilst I'm not a hunter, I turned Fern from huntress to helper in that I used her skills and abilities to bring deer out to me to photograph, as I'm a professional photographer. We were quite a team. 
      I just loved everything about that girl.
      Thanks for any help received.
