I find talking to the lads I know , most people don’t need a houndx a pointerx or most lurchers will find game if it’s around , up those wales hills there’s not a lot game so the houndx do come into there own , Iv been all over and had days catching 4/5 foxes with lurchers you’ll never do that up in wales but places like Dartmoor and other moors more north you will 

I hunt Dartmoor and North Wales. My dogs do fine but I just reckon a hound x type might find a bit better. I’m happy with what I got as I like other types of Lurchers work. I probably hunt the hills a few times a month. If I was on there most days then they would prob be a lot better at what they do.

Big shaggy dog was hound X,over a beddy bull grey bitch bottom pic, bred the smooth bitch,middle picture.. neither ever made more noise than a normal lurcher...

I seen this young dog come up for rehoming today and thought he looked a bit long in the leg and wondered wether there be some sighthound in him? I know next to nothing of the breed though so probably

Wouldn’t be bred for lamping really , when ever this breed comes up people think about speaking on the lamp , there used for day time hunting a lot in wales , got family there few lads use them , yes

Not all hounds like the sharp end. A lot will hold back same as lurchers. You would need to select your hound carefully.

Same as anything dog your using to breed , I’m moving to wales soon to be closer to my daughter so may have to look abit closer at these types

Iv seen a few Welsh houndx seem to have a decent coat , lads usually use a nice big dog hound thst doesn’t mind teeth we both now a lot of hounds are pretty shy of teeth unless there in a pack , i seen a dog out of a bullx to a harrier bitch couple seens ago real nice dog 

Now it funny you say that regards some hounds hold off  a fox, unless they got few mates with them. I was quite surprised really, as some foxhounds are massive, I thought Buck was big, but some of them males hit 30 in 110lb, big thick bone on them. Dogs are strange creatures really, Buck certs passive with people /kids dogs, and yet wreak a fox, carry back proud as punch to me lol

Buck is a straight cross between a GSD and a grey. Takes all quarry. Great temperament. Bird has promised me a pup as soon as he puts him across a decent bitch.😀

That's very true, plenty good brave terriers 5-6kg kill   foxes under ground, I've always admire a good terrier, we got little jack with chihuahua in him little woody, only 5kg 11lb, he the boss at home deff in garden. And as said before on Buck fookin scared of him, yet he switch it on, and wreak a fox or bloody cat if bumped into one when out.?

He to old now mate, he 10 in august, if they had few bitches before you can still breed from them true. But if they not bred before, they sperm get weaker, and very difficult to produce. I do know one thing though, I know I find it hard to get a temp as his as good with. People/kids and dogs. I said to my wife that when Buck gone couple years time maybe. I get me a mature dog, just as a pet , unless I drop lucky I think find it hard, he been good in the field and at home👍

I realise that mate. i got a couple here 14 and 11. When they go I'll probably get an older dog from a dog home too. Im too old for a pup. But need a dog just to get me out and about.
