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.

      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

      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...
