Hi,

I’ve been directed this way as Its proving more difficult than first thought, trying to find a Bedlington x Greyhound. (F1, Bitch) I would like to add one to my kennel for working purposes and to add to the blood of my future lines. 

if you know of any line ups or could point me in the right direction this would be much appreciated. 

cheers 

Ben

Why as it got to be a f1 Ben f1s are more of a gamble that the parents were any good for the job producing dogs that will work the beddy it’s self is in a shit state an the greyhound used would be a failure greyhound

Surprised anyone keeps bedlington lurchers with the availability of decent wheaten lurchers now as I think for producing running dogs a wheaten has all the attributes people want a bedlington to have but they generally don’t I have a little bedlington fell x bitch decent bolting bitch but not the type of terrier I’d want in my lurcher personal preference I suppose atb

Proper working Wheatons availability is the same as beddy availability there’s not many you see most of these Wheaton xs about are lurcher to lurcher breds that look like they got a load of bull blood added but branded as a Wheaton xs most working Wheatons have a drop of bull blood added to prep em up it’s the same with decent working beddys they have a outcross to prep them up I still think most of the outcross terriers produce better working terriers than the standard straight breed terriers.I sort of get what your saying though I’m a beddy lurcher fan my self I don’t think modern f1 beddy crosses are what there made out to be and not what they once were there not the finish article what people make them out to be I personally see the f1 beddy greyhound as a base rather than the straight beddy least that way you know the beddy Lurcher can do the job that your putting in to other type Lurchers

I’ve always had a strange opinion on beddy greyhounds even though there small types they gotta be masters of none used for a bit of everything type of hunting dog there’s not much point in them if there only to be stood over a Warren may as well just have a whippet it’d me more a effectively warreners dog

To be honest I was looking for an F1 for reason opposite to what you’re stating. The first generation are usually used as a cross because the dogs were in a proven state. And you usually end up with a good even amount of both genes. That goes for build, shape and coat (usually rough coated) 

Yeah, I even spoke to a friend that works Bedlingtons, terrierman for a local hunt. And he is lining his proven  dog with a greyhound soon but they are still on the lookout for a coursing greyhound. My only issue with his working bedlingtons, like many nowa days, they are not of pure blood. Many  now have Lakey added. This worries me as the dog  (beddy x whippet) I would like to use over the beddy greyhound bitch (if I can find one) for future lines, I would would end up with a bunch of keys in the litter and probably too much wastage.

Just to add to this, this exactly the reason I’m looking for one. I’ve got 2 Beddy x whippets who work rabbits. 
 

the land I work is fairly large, I have family in the agricultural business with a few thousand acres, not to mention the permissions that have been passed down in the local area to me. I’ve come into the lurcher game fairly late as I’ve always been a fan of dispatching quarry with smoke sticks. 
 

ive been ferreting now for a few years with the dogs and now I’m venturing with a few mates lamping on my ground. The lamping is exposing a huge variation of quarry, and I’m fed up of calling others in to help as I don’t have the right dog. I need something to start of, a good base dog (F1 Beddy x Greyhound) To use and improve for future lines with my own. Trying to give myself a good all rounder from the dogs I have and the breed I know.

      Hello, would just like a few pointers from the more experienced members than me on the best way or their particular methods of breaking terriers to livestock? I have a relative that keeps poultry on an allotment that would let me take my pup through, but he’s 5 months now and like most working bred terriers he’s feisty and excited by fur and feather. I wouldn’t want any nasty mistakes to happen so any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

      I’m looking for some advice as we recently rescued a whippet lurcher mix. She’s extremely friendly and sociable with dogs and people but is constantly biting and grabbing our older dogs legs, ears and neck. He’s s cavachon and doesn’t really care for playing or interacting with other dogs so he rarely snaps or growls at her when she starts. He’ll just stand there looking at us or try to run away. She’s never been aggressive towards him and regularly try’s to protect him if other dogs get rough with him. However she’s constantly biting at him when he starts barking or when’s she too excited. We separate her and tell her no but so far it’s not working and he’s doing little to tell her to stop. My worry is he’s much smaller then her and that she might accidentally hurt him if we weren’t there to stop it. Is this common Lurcher behaviour and any suggestions? Thanks

      Hello there. I have a jack Russell pup coming in the next few weeks when he is ready to leave his mother. He’s from working stock and I am hoping to try him out when he’s ready. I would just like to get some advice or pointers from people on here as to what sort of diet you think is best for working terriers? I Want to keep him in best condition I can, strong and healthy. All comments very much appreciated.

      Hello to all.
      I would like some help with our lurchers coat. Luna is 3 this year, her Mum was a Border Collie x Whippet (merle) her Dad a Whippet x Greyhound (Non-Merle). I think she has the harlequin merle modifier gene, I don't think she is double merle, her Dad was not cryptic as far as we can tell. She has no helth issues eyesight excellent and her hearing is as selective as any lurcher. 
      She is a stunning wee dog, very unique markings, great temperament.
      Any help appreciated.
