Deerhound/Grey X Wheaton Grey


Recommended Posts

Just wondered if anyone has any experience with this cross as there's a litter local to me and i'm a little tempted. The lurchers i've had for the last 30 years or so have been small whippet based dogs for rabbits but as this is potentially my last lurcher i'm tempted to try something a bit bigger. To be honest i'm more of a countryman and environmentalist these days (getting old and soft lol) but fancy something that could potentially take something bigger than rabbits and squirrels. My main concern is the reputation of wheatons being aggressive to other dogs (don't know if that's justified?) and a bit unpredictable. My dogs spent a lot of time with my young Grandsons so 'a loose cannon' is definitely out of the question! Would welcome the objective feedback of anyone with experience of this cross.

Cheers 🙂

I've no experience of the cross, but I've seen a few, so these pics may give you an idea of what to expect, at least as to what they look like

Two litter sisters, deerhound x Wheatan/Greyhound ;

A litter brother went down south, and was evidently a very tidy dog on fox and deer.

The bitch in the first picture was put back to a deerhound, and the only pup I've seen looks like a smaller, stockier deerhound.

Not exactly the breeding you mentioned, but as near as I've seen.

Cheers.

I was offered that bitch at 12 month old, I should have took it but I had three dogs and was waiting on a pup.

It went on to be a decent bitch and took a lot of stuff.

Cheers.

I'd like something bigger than what I've got and she stands at 23 tts ,I like the Wheaton x greyhound but I don't see it putting height into the mix .I like the look of deerhound grey x collie greyhound and put over my bedy grey I think should get a good animal and capable of doing anything .

I had a similar cross years ago and it was a fantastic animal. Great temperament at home and very keen in the field.
