Some very interesting replies, thank you.

For obvious reasons I cannot be too explicit about things.
 

However I think Bosun has the right idea. If I were after a pup mainly for teeth, I’d just put my bitch back to a real good bull x. Same if I were back home running the ground I did then, on hunting in the way I used to mainly. She was bred for certain jobs and she excels at them.
 

I now live in a part of the country where the ground is totally different and I find myself with a ridiculous abundance of certain quarry species on my permission. My bitch does very well and pleases me, but I feel that the right coursing dog would compliment my bitch at this particular game. In theory, the cross should be ideal for me, for what I do and on the ground which I do it.

What dog you got in mind sheepchaser ?

I can only talk about foxes but why any man would even consider adding coursing dog blood into a line of fox dogs is beyond me. 
I’d happily share the petrol with big Ron and even light the fire.

If a bit of everything is what you’re into then I totally agree. 👍. I’ve heard myself of lads adding saluki to fox dogs and imo they’ve lost their marbles lol or they are running some special kind of fox with a crazy kind of stamina. Lol.

If the dogs to be a point aim dog your definitely not go wrong with a saluki greyhound bull greyhound I know a couple of guys running this cross at the minute there take any rabbits if it’s moving there catch em! They make good serviceable runners in the right hands one I get out with don’t think we blanked once with it so far this season always a entertaining dog to watch run as well

Coursing dogs add agility to the mix though. I’ve seen some half cross bulls on the lamp with a turning circle of a tanker. Offen taking 6 or more bends before they are able to strike. Small fields and there gone.

they are deff good x , ive always said you need another breed in the mix to pit x grey , the other breed more so the saluki , give better stamina , agility , and better recovery  from each run . ok if your only after  1 quarry  and dog on the lead most of the night,  or slip from a motor , but on foot lot of walking, a dog got to handle long night , that what i like about my big dog Buck,  when fit will put in  long hard night, a gsd as natural agilty/stamina , not like saluki , but like a collie . thats another good x pit x grey x collie x grey, same again you need the extra 3rd breed .  i do like 1x pit x grey, the best ive seen was 1x staff x grey  his wind was ok, but he was more for round holes most time,  my 1/4 pit 3/4 grey was fast  and not bad wind , but not as good as Buck got , suppose it what, and how you work the dog that counts  ;)

One mans treasure is another mans trash , saluki grey bull grey wouldn’t suit me what so ever now , and neither would my old bitch that the mother to the bitch in question hence why I rehomed the sister to her , and my dogs don’t suit where the original poster is horses for courses but I do like a collie bull grey , my pointer X is tough as old boots mind ! But you can’t replace what bulls bring to the table

Hello All,

Ive not been on here in a long long time. Some of you may remember me, most probably won’t.

Anyway, cutting to the chase, I have decided that after this season I want to breed my bitch. And I’m hoping someone on here can point me in the direction of the right sire, most of my very small group of friends either keep bitches or not the sort of dog im looking to use. I have one option currently, which is a dog I go out with, but it’s always worth having a look about.

What I’m looking for is a coursing type dog, big, at least 26”, fast and with plenty of stamina and good bone. Nothing too light, but also must have the legs to carry him. And preferably the type with the kind of heart that will die trying kill what you put in front of it and will run through a wall to get to it. 

The bitch I want to put it over is 9/16 grey and 7/16 bull. She’s about 25/26” and pretty strongly built. She does well enough for me.

The ground I’m running is mostly big 100 acre plus arable fields, no fences, hedges etc. Hence the choice of sire, I want to add that bit more pace, bit more stamina, and I want pups at least get size or bigger and I don’t want to lose that bull x drive, if anything I want more hahaha but that’s just me.

I am extremely out of the loop and pretty much keep myself to myself, my dogs and the half dozen folk I met on here many many moons ago who I still go out with regular. Hence posting on here now.

Thanks in advance and I hope everyone is having a good season.

For one you can walk the land and slip at 100 plus yards  lol save your petrol by not driving the land throwing dogs out windows lol 2 you only have to feed one dog instead a 2 or more and 3 the old wobble after a run be seen a lot less
