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.

Absolutely nothing in the right uns.They became popular when lurchers were at their zenith and the folk were about that actually knew how to fully utilise a decent lurcher.Its a breed now that is lost on the majority of the present generation.There is not the same standard of ownership now and the few decent souls will be hard pressed to source a decent lurcher of this type.The more popular breeds of lurchers bred now suit another time and generation.There are still lurcher to lurcher bred pups available with generations of graft behind them,id look for one of those and not get to hung up on wanting a specific type,source something that's bred to suit your hunting lifestyle,don,t follow fashion,stay away from the turds.

Seen Morton son dog big strong dog , Morton said on here he putting dog over this Wheaton greyhound bitch 

The only reason he,s putting it over the Wheaten is because he cannot source another decent Deerhoundy/Collie combo that's suitable.Id not take have a pup out of the Wheaten bitch,good for what my lads looking for as grafters,will certainly lack the pace and gears.

The Wheaten as one of the finest noses ive ever seen on a lurcher,her drive and determination is a thing to behold,she will scent,hunt and smash cover as well as any lurcher ive had the pleasure to witness,yet she lacks pace and a change of gear,to me that's possibly the biggest flaw in lurcher production.

Told you years ago that wheaten would add to the line but no you said you’d hold out for the perfect bitch, I know we don’t get on but I wish your lad all the very best with his future pups 👍

The dog is far,far better than the bitch,if he put that dog over something bred the same way they would be far, far better than the progeny from the wheaten.If its a choice of producing something or nothing the wheaten comes into the equation.Id never breed for second best.No pups this time?.Its interesting that in his generation he had folk queueing up for a pup,because they had seen the dog at work,in my generation we would not have endorsed breeding from a bitch lacking pace and a gear shift.Cheers for the courtesy.

I owned a DH/Grey x Collie/grey in the 80's was half decent catch dog although it  lacked a bit of wind if truth be told. i often ran it with a saluki cross and they made a good paring. Alas it went wristy in the end.

Don't think there's any strain of working deerhound about now and the show stuff is pretty abysmal so if one of this breeding did well it would be in-spite of rather than because of the Deerhound. They are lookers though and there are plenty of decent workers about that have a bit of dodgy breeding in their background.

No photos but i did a painting back then titled legal quarry, was a different age.
