Heres hoping i may get this thread  back on track, at a loose end and lo and behold, i came across an article penned by old phil in theold shooting news feb 1987, price 65p, the article by phil was entitled THE DEERHOUND INFLUENCE, and what a great write up it was on the true working deerhound x, and thetribute and debt thatphil owed to his old straiin of greyhound/deerhoundx sheepdog hybrids,and especially his old bitch lucy, as old phil said she seved him well and deserved her retirement,if phil reads this he may kindly post the pic of himself and the brace of these hybrids that accompanied this article, like you phil i certainly owe alot to the deerhound x greyhounds of that era, think it was alan wilkinson co durham, that was slipping the   brace of pures on the front cover, im old school and wouldnt have a clue how to post pics, and yes im still running deerhounds xs if you like it or not, think these will be my last, like phil  getting that little bit older. atb running whatever cross suits your needs, the deerhounds always did it for me but it was a different era back then, and genuine stock was available.

Deer grey x wheaton bull grey.

First time owning one and tbh not a x id of went for but ended up with this bitch and tbh I'm enjoying my hunting again.

Can't really comment on the deer x grey as such as have only ever seen one run and although on that particular day i didn't see it catch anything it covered roughly hilly ground almost effortlessly.

      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.
