Foxing lurchers

Recommended Posts

I know it’s a long shot but it’s worth a go I’ve had both the runners I brought on jack on me this year and I’ve written off the end of the season and things are looking bleak for next season too 👎so I’m just wondering Is anyone planning on breeding a litter or has pups on the ground. Looking for a pup out of well tested 100% parents with a few seasons of hard graft behind them. I know the type I’m after and won’t be rushing into anything or taking on just any old pup. It’s not huge land round this way so I’m on the look out for a tight dog around the 25/26”” mark. I’m in ireland but for the right stuff don’t mind hopping on a ferry. I know there’s a few decent fellas on here any help given is much appreciated 👍 sionnach

It’s sickening to say the least. But I’ll hold out and get something out of the right stuff. A lot of dirt about lads breeding off stuff that has only seen game every other week. I’ll take my time what’s for you won’t pass you👍

I know mate. It’s the luck of the draw. If they all worked we’d all have yards full of good ones..

I'd be going for a pup where both parents are good fox dogs and come from fox hunting lines more than what breeds are in them,I think a bigger % of the pups should be decent workers.A confident pup from working parents,so study the litters behaviour.
