Saluki's and their crosses.


Recommended Posts

It's a crying shame that we never hear about these ancient desert dogs on here. 

Apparently they have been used with great success in the coursing world.

Here's a thread to discuss their abilities.

Question then, why aren't saluki's the preferred dog of choice in the coursing scene of the UK? 

Why are line bred dogs superior, going by what you're saying nothing can improve ve them?

because lads couldnt always get quality blood salukis wasnt available to working class in 60s 70s mate vwery much what they did get went into lurchers greyhound then back to each other most of the copursing blood goes back to the same saluki blood mate so the matchmen lads who work em hard had more access to coursing bred resulting in a better hound

Is there any particular strain quicker killing than others, I get bored shitless watching the war of attrition that is modern day coursing ( pre ban😂😁 )

early season fast type land there dead like a pure greyhound mate lol lampinmg hares hardly a bend rabbit just poicked up first straight not a bend 

if you actually tried running what you think was fast against one youd see there faster than you think 

a 3/4 grey wont even bend a hare on the slop mate

So you're saying the base of these coursing legends was of poor quality? 

Why was the latest of the pre-ban action still dominated by these lurchers instead of pures. 

And how can you say that the pures were of poor quality and that there was better in the desert lands if they had never entered these shores?

No they was good salukis mate but rich didn't let poor at em most coursing lads got the pure blood from one source didnt have pures to breed them with 

In the foley best dogs about pures was in the finals mate with coursing breds 👍 more good men had coursing bred Then  pures so more quality about
