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

The people I got a russell off tried a pure deerhound around holes and it wasn't up to it. They now have a grey/oz staghound which is spot on for the foxes. The deer cross bull/grey would be a good all round dog here for bigger quarry. Even my blue whippet lurcher although pretty fearless has a soft side to her which I like and she is only 1/8 deerhound.

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. 

If your serious I can I can put you in touch with a fella up in the new England area that has a pair a good guns. And breeds them occasionally.

I moved up the North coast a few months ago to please the mrs, worst move. There are a few deer around here but it's a shit area for me. Will be moving back to the bush soon as the mrs can't handle the place either. I will be looking at getting a bigger type running dog soon. Have the guy got pure deerhounds or crosses ? Thanks Steve.

😃We did not own the big hairy fellah..😀

Just used him over Irish Bred coursing bitches...they were beautiful animals,..tumbled roe for fun👍

Then, when I went on the rabbits for wages, I fancied a smaller jukel for the hedgerows, so we tried the whippet blood ..This brought the size right down, and many of the male pups inherited the fabulous crispy coat of the Deerhound. I liked them alongside the Beddies well enough,.but I always returned to the Herding blood composites...👏

Great days though...

Stay safe now, kind regards, OldPhil🙏

      Evening all,
      I'm lucky enough to have first pick from a friends litter. He’s crossed his Saluki dog with his Collie Bull GH bitch. I’ve only seen videos of the litter as he’s based in UK. Few different characters in the litter, some sit reluctant off in the back ground others play among themselves two are incredibly forward one more than the other. 
       
      What key things do you look for when picking a litter? I’ve mostly ran mine on rabbits, reds and some others.
       
      Go stead,
      oshea

      Just got this stunning little bitch, nearly 12 months old, Deerhound x Bedie grey.
      I used to go out with my dad's Lurchers when I was a kid but I'm a female in my 30's now and struggling to get back into the swing of things.
      I'd love to have this girl knocking down bunnies but I just don't know where to start, I've barely seen a rabbit or and other quarry since I moved here.
      Any of you experts in my area fancy giving me some advice/practical experience (hunting related only)

      Some of you may remember back in March 21 I had my bitch spayed and a lump removed from her teats.
      Another lump has formed and after having a biopsy the result is that it's deffo cancer. 😢 
      Vet says we're looking at about a grand to treat/remove it with no guarantee of success.
      She will be 12 in about 6 weeks.
      I'm monitoring the size and if it's growing quickly it's gonna be a PTS scenario but I'm of the mind to see how she goes over the summer and let her get some sun on her back and then PTS, obviously if she's feeling it I'll do the deed sooner.
      f***ing dogs eh?
      Cheers, D.

      What do folk use for keeping their dogs at the height of cleanliness? 
      Mostly talking about ears here, the amount of gunk that seems to build up resulting in all night head shaking is phenomenal. 
      How cropped are you keeping nails? Best tooth and gum care?
      Seems not to be a topic but I know everybody is keeping their dogs in top condition

      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
