Thanks all. I once went to a Plummer kennels to buy a plummer. When I chatted to the owner Brian Plummer inevitably came up and its seems that they took a lot of his stock of Plummers New Blood I think because that is what I bought but thats another story. They also had a lot of his Lurchers. They told me that the only type of Lurcher Plummer would entertain was a straight Collie Greyhound Cross. That was the story I got. I wish I had scrapped the idea off the Plummer and got a Lurcher from the way things turned out Anyway what is your thoughts on his Collie Greyhound cross🙂 Apparently he was an odd king of fella Brian.

They is a few that think a lurcher as to be a first x collie grey or a terrier grey 

To me the best type is one that's catching and one you can live with

Yer he’s doing ok, this will be his first propper season where I will push him now and find out what his weaknesses are but going off last season I am really pleased with him 👍

beddy collie greyhound mongrely hybrid things is what I use if your not needing a specialist type dog for set job this cross has the jobs in hand 👍🏽 

The ideal lurcher is the one that works best for you in your country.

Yes tuppence would be a terrier whippet, I wished someone told me that at the beginning lol, bulls can be a bit full on for a novice and collie crosses can be a complete head feck 🤣 but there's only one way to find out and that's to get a pup from working stuff and give it a go.

If you want a decent ratching about lurcher,a bit of ferreting,lamping ,general mooching about and doing what a proper lurcher was intended for then the last thing on the pedigree would be bull infusion,over bred,over priced,over exaggerated and over indulged by nuggets.The decent bred,owned and worked uns have little in common with rodent hunting,feather plucking, lurcher owners.

Don’t talk out your ass a fast bull x will do all that with with the plus side of it’ll go down the beam to anything unlike them collie deerhoundys who pretend can’t see anything more than a rabbit😂

iv saw 2 run on uist on the marran one was an 8 month old pup other a brindle bitch called merab both capable lurchers catching big bags of rabbits on the lamp....i saw the bitch merab do the ton twice and the pup had 70 odd one night in not much over 2 hours...i doubt il ever see rabbits in numbers like that ever again was like a plague......plummer i no feck all about him but those two lurchers where a bit off class il remember for a long time...

I gather Plummer had sold the Merab bitch then, as i couldn't see him staying out for more than ten rabbits in his jumper and school teacher shoes, no matter how thick on the ground they were... 😁
