The ultimate lounge lizard, the Lurcher is elegant, graceful, beautiful, emotional and utterly faithful. A variable mix of a sight hound, Greyhound or Whippet with another dog, typically a Bedlington Terrier or Border Collie, the Lurcher is the poacher’s best friend. Traditionally a gypsy dog, the Lurcher has been adopted by families as the perfect pet. I know, I have one and she has won Prettiest Bitch three years in a row at the local dog show. She has now retired to bask in the glory of her victories.
