Lurchers

The Lurcher is not an actual breed of dog but rather a type of dog, which usually has a member of the sighthound family for one of its parents. Sighthound breeds include the Greyhound, Whippet, Deerhound, Borzoi and Sluki. Other breeds commonly found within the family tree of a Lurcher include Border Collies and Bedlington Terriers.

This multiple crossing of breeds produces dogs that are exceptionally versatile in their use in the field. They are silent hunters, using exceptional speed and stamina to run down game, but they are also highly intelligent and make gentle, loyal companions.
