deerhound greyhoundx collie

Recommended Posts

 been a big supporter of the deerhound greyhound, but just recently been thinking about  getting one with abit of good working collie blood in it, never seen one work or heard any reports on them,what would be the best way to go if you wanted to produce  one for working, well aware of the fact that good strains of deerhound are getting harder to obtain, but surely good working hill collies will still be about,remember phil lloyd used to run them in the seventies, and im sure he wouldnt have kept them if they were poor doers. thanks for replies.

they were popular in 70s  d/g/c xs good for few rabbits the odd hare , why not go bullx grey x collie x grey, you got more chance of getting a pup that way and make good alrounder  not many deerhound  typexs about today.

did you ever see this cross run, i appreciate they were good for rabbit and hare, if bred the right way,but preban days were they not up to taking deer and foxes. what was lacking in them.

I like the sound of deerhound greyhound x collie greyhounds over the more modern xs Tbh but have a really sneaky liking for the sound of 3quarter greyhound bull x f1 Bedlington greyhound to a deerhound/greyhound I recon I’d be in prison in no time owning a dog like that 😂 as I’d probably avoid legal quarry an concentrate just on bigger stuff think that’s why I stick to the medium collie beddy greyhound mixes because there chancers there have a crack but not specialist at nothing an can be used as a general hunting dog. My cousin an his mate run collie greyhound deerhound greyhounds years ago they would take fox an deer no problem they weren’t really used as rabbit dogs but would catch a few given opportunity to

Beddy instead of collie then that put to a racey bull greyhound or racey Wheaton x perfect cross👌🏽

only on rabbits, bloke said it was the above breeding, but you never realy know with a lurcher whats gone in them, but regards the deer job and foxes, the 2 breeds  deerhound and collie are not the bravest of dogs , when the going gets bit rough, so it dont surprise if this x   d/c/g  not that good. thats why i said you need drop of pit  or mal,  or gsd  to fire them up a bit.

When we ran the deerhound x greyhounds In the 80s-90s they all done everything and were really good on the big stuff and teeth.I wouldn’t have a bullx or Salukix given as there not for me.I do like the Wheaton x which might be nice in the deerhoundxs.My son got a deerhound/greyhound x bull/greyhound of John slack a few years ago when he lined a keepers bitch and it just looked like a strong deerhound greyhound and done everything he was a powerful animal.

One of the worst lurchers I’ve ever seen was a deerhound collie grey 

dog was a liability to itself and anything around it 

ended up on three legs and became fertiliser soon afterwards 

was from supposed top breeding as well from down wales 

total article 

next worst was a deerhound greyhound that had a sense of importance but came unstuck with a lab and another lurcher in a kennel fight. 
 

yeah , not a fan of anything deerhound bred to be honest . 
 

although I’d give a one back to a Sal grey a blast
