Depends what you wanted it for, but I think it would be a handy cross. My “whippet” is 1/4 JRT. Can’t go wrong with a bit of terrier in there.

Pup in pic is bedy whippet x pat whippet and all pups from this litter made good small lurchers ,I never bred this x again but looking back maybe I should have as they all turned out OK 

not as fast as a whippet but faster than a terrier.....

Yes I know exactly what you mean and earth working bedlingtons seem as rare as rocking horse shit. what I call bushing beddy, that work rats, rabbits etc still seem to produce when put to whippets. 

I’ve never had a beddy lurcher so I suppose I can’t really comment. But if I had the choice, I’d go for the patt. I suppose we are all different and a dog has only to please it’s owner.

I’ve gone down the smaller terrier cross lurchers and I must say I’m very impressed. I only need them to work rats and rabbits and they do the jobs perfectly. 
 

 

I would expect they see fox as fair game to? Flushing to gun obviously

Are you joking? It’s night and day between the two. Patterdales are worked a lot more then bedlington terriers. Would you be happier to use a  bedlington over a patt say as a stud dog? 

All depends on what bitch I was putting it over ,lot more patts go to ground but I don't think the bedlington terrier was ever ment for working small earths but rock piles and badger sets and if the patterdale a better option to produce lurchers why wasn't it used that much in the past or in recent times ? I'd rather go with a bedlington stud that's bushing and ratting/rabbiting than a out and out earth dog to produce q lurcher but that my opinion,

That’s the route I’m heading down when these big ones are gone. 

Yep the big black bitch is unfortunately my last big dog.

beddy crosses can sometimes be bad for f***ing  off bushing when lamping id imagine you get it threw to the pat they will be at the holes all the time

Yeah It can happen and some little terrier crosses will go under ,I seen a whippet greyhound go up a pipe in middle o the night and lug summat back 30 foot and out same dog had 2 be dug on other occasions at night ,wernt really what was required tbh 🤣

Ive been after a good whippet with a touch of bull or terrier for a while. I find if they aint got a touch of sommat else there abit fragile but alot of crosses aint fast enough in the open need hedges to kill rabbits on the lamp
