I think a beddy greyhound x deerhound greyhound would be a nice cross to try at some point something around 25tts would do me lovely ive only ever seen one beddy deerhound greyhound mix dog it was a foxer great dog wasn’t as large as you would expect from the cross but a handy dog with a good personality I’d like to breed my beddy collie x bitch in about 3yrs time by then she’ll be about 5 I’m thinking something on the lines of a straight greyhound or a deerhound greyhound as my bitch is a cobby thick set type 

My cousin used to  keep this type... Dogs were around 25/26 bitches 23/24... He was only into edibles and the odd spin on puss... I try and dig out a few pics I've not spoken or seen him in 10 years.. I had a bitch called Spider from him but she was stolen before I could test her fully. I wanted the same x again but missed out on a pup, so went and tried the wheaton x I have now... I would like to put a deerhound x over her if I ever breed from her... Think they would add an inch or two and lighten them up👍I'm only interested in filling a freezer these days tbh...

I had a similar type, DH/grey x Bull/grey, 27 and powerful, just starting to show some worth when he broke a wrist, a lot of strain on the big dogs joints if they're fast types. But if I still had hybrids I'd likely go for something similar. post-2025-063060700%201280834263_thumb.jpeg

Most of the pure deerhounds over here are too soft for the job. I've always wanted a pure working deerhound cross whippet, they were supposed to be better than whippet/stags  and were considered the ultimate rabbit dogs in steep hilly country. Rare as RHS now. 

thats a fare comment , ive seen a couple of this type x in the 80s, big 28-30in dogs , couldnt say  how there actually bred but thet had good lump of deerhound and greyhound in the mix, they get few hares in the day, and not bad in the lamp the bloke said i seen them in the day mooching, but he did say that they weren't  really fox dogs, had couple bt not over keen on the sharp end. now that come from the deerhound deff, there not the bravest  of dogs. i worked at a racing kennel for 6 months , and got to know greyhounds quite well, and ok they make nice pets for people, but feck me they make very good fox dogs, when there bloods up, they dont mind bit of pain . i know from reading about the yank stags that bred for yotes  and the Oz stags that killed dingos , both are good type deerhound type xs, but these types have been bred for 100s of years for those quarry, not like our soft temp type dogs. if really wanted deerhound type x today , i try to get one bred back to a pit x grey , put some grit in to the x, or  i try to get a import from the states of proven yote dogs , a dog that deal with anything with have over here  deff

She's a lovely bitch mate👌I wanted a pup from this litter... Missed out..  Infairness the man offered me the use of the deerhound dog in the future... Another 2 seasons and I may just take him up on the offer if they both still around... My bitch is a proper trier but lacks that little extra speed... Think the dh would lighten them up 👍

I can't stand salukis, brought me nothing but bad luck over the yrs...  my bitch works out half grey, 1/4 bull 1/4 wheaton... IMG_20200603_194006_115.jpg.d1a33900bb2f05fb7ae6d603ed5c23f4.jpgDSC_0979.JPG.ef42321620fdb2f9f053a57fc3d1986c.JPG

That deerhound is a flying machine seen it run a few times, covers the rough ground very well.

I hate salukis couldnt give me one been around plenty of saluki xs aswell. My pal does have a good one that has taken a lot of foxes but id not own it personally, couldn't live with it, gets upset with him and sulks

      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 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.

      Anyone ever worked a deaf lurcher by any chance?..reason behind the question is I’ve bred a retired dog to a Merle bitch an I took my pup from it the biggest of the lot black and white with two ice blue eyes but I’ve noticed he can’t hear anything bangs or anything like that there’s only a odd reaction to some stuff but his eyesight is 100% very good eyes. I’m just curious because it’s all I have from this old dog and I was thinking could I use the pup lamping and out with terriers any info be [BANNED TEXT]. The father was not Merle only mother...

      Help Required as to ancestry /history of my saluki /Greyhound. 
      I have just lost my dog of a lifetime to cancer, she was 11/12 yrs old.I am truly heartbroken. 
      I'm not a hunter,but have always loved sight hounds in particular salukis.
      My dog Fern was a very distinguishable sighthound ,her colouring alone a mutated dilute. Was quite a show stopper. I'd have people literally stopping cars to ask what she was as she held herself well and looked awesome. 
      She was Steel and tan with a white butterfly on chest. White tips on feet. 
      Fur like velvet and shone.
      A glamourous looking dog.
      She passed through I believe 5 lurcher men before coming to me age around 4 yrs. 
      I had her 8 yrs. 
      I have  sketchy details of her young life and know she was initially used as a racing dog and then a lampers dog. Until she hurt her spine and broke a toe.  
      Fern was born around 2009,lived in North East England (Northumberland).
      I believe she had two litters of puppies (do you have one?)
      Lived Winlaton, Mickley,Prudhoe , Ryton, Greenside, Horsley.
      I believe her father (sire) may of being khan jihad. 
      I believe her mother (dam) was a steel greyhound and was a Irish coursing champion.  
      Does anyone know who that might be?
      Who bred Fern?
      Does her heritage fit time scale wise?
      I would dearly love to know as I said, totally in bits at her loss. 
      I just want to try and recreate her or seek out someone who might be able too from same lineage. 
      Whilst I'm not a hunter, I turned Fern from huntress to helper in that I used her skills and abilities to bring deer out to me to photograph, as I'm a professional photographer. We were quite a team. 
      I just loved everything about that girl.
      Thanks for any help received.
