Beddy greyhound

My old 1/2 cross dog early 90s would pull whatever was in the beam. This dog was an early starter and run hard all over the Country,admittedly  back then it was a much easier time for a Lurcher owner with less restrictive laws. Ive mentioned it before the dog had everything but the few times I bred him he never produced nothing like himself. My dogs sire was a Gutchcommon dog owned by a man in Durham who kept them. Get one bred from the right stuff and they are more than capable of doing what a lot of people think they cant .

 

 

 

Your right there mick mine have been off similar lines and they have and do exactly what it says on the tin ?

That’s the problem these days mick finding them bred from the right stuff a lot of beddys are talked up An produce nothing more than rabbits dogs with poor coats I like bedlingtons hybrids but I don’t think I could bring my self to own a f1 bedlington greyhound the gamble not for me id rather someone else do the foot work with f1 if a good hard bred one pops up that’s worked regular on more than rabbits I’m naturally interested in that dog I’m not interested in magic names in the f1s breeding I’m only interested in can it do the job master of none type taker of all 

My bitch got a perfect thick jacket on.her as so one of my hybred terriers ? But some hybred terriers have real bad coats thats why i would go 4 A lurcher bred out one ?

Both mine have as well mate The half x I used had a really good hard coat that’s the way I plan on keeping it further Down the road if an when We have to find another f1 dog to put back in but we’re all good for a couple of generations yet we’ve got the right ingredients to type breed and line breed if we wish were probably sorted for the next 10yrs or so I’d think it’s a case of finding out in this second generation type needs what there capable of very impressed so far

I think there will be decent beddy X out there kept in small circles. The ones for sale advertised as green grass types and fetching £400 + need to be discounted. I had a beddy grey type as my first Lurcher. I was a kid and he was wasted on me to be honest. Would love to have him as a pup again now. I just know he had it in him to make a very good dog. I tried to get one a couple of years ago but the line has finished. People need to think twice before they stud out to just any old bitch and the same goes for for the dams owner. You got to know what you want and see the dogs doing what you want. Not just Facebook pictures. Sounds like you put a lot of effort and time in poxon. 👍

I find most beddy lurchers just aren't tested enough or not seriously enough, most lurchers can catch the odd h,d,f but just doing it once or twice as well as ferreting on a weekend and a once a month lamping trip doesn't make it a tested dog in my opinion. I know one 3/8 beddy 5/8 grew then lamps for a keeper several times a week doing multiple a night, single or double he doesn't mind plus easily single handed fills the freezer, also draws alongside terriers. Very few if any beddy lurchers put in the graft that dog does and on top of that he's trained to gundog standards and easily out performs spaniels and labs on the shooting lines. Dogs like him are rare but not sure if it's due to the dogs not being up for much or if it's kennel blindness that encourages people to think their once a week lamping dog is a world beater and are happy to settle for minimal effort.

In cases like that then he would be the type that people should want to use as a stud dog. There is an element of kennel blindness with all breeds. Some people are happy getting out once or twice a week and most dogs would suit them. Just be easier if people where honest when breeding.

I had hoped to use him over my bitch last year but unfortunatley for personal reasons he had to cancel the arrangement.

These things happen. It’s just a shame when you have your heart set on the dog you want to use

Real gutted and very last minute, my bitch was on day 13 so I had to find another dog as I didn't want to miss thst season, very happy with the 2nd option and the pups are crackers but I'd have loved to see what the original choice would have thrown
