Pawz I mean he won't be from a breeder that is recognised by the KC because he isn't purebred. The man who bred only breeds when he needs another dog to work.

I wanted to stay away from purebreeds all together this time. This man works his dogs,feeds them well,they are inside with his family and both dam and sire are great stamps of a lurcher.

Zoorun, he is 1/4 greyhound 1/4 whippet 1/4 collie although I would think there is bull terrier in there too somewhere.

I'm really stuck on Flint, its quite hard to fully pronounce so it may become Flin lol.

IBM is this any different from other BYBs breeding designer dogs? It doesn't sound so to me... Please inform me if I am misinformed because this isn't any better than people supporting their BYB for a schnoodle....

Pawz this is not BYB, its like people breeding a specific mix for sledding.
Lurchers aren't a breed and people who breed them are certaintly not breeding for a 'designer name' they are breeding to find the perfect working dog. Breeding for drive,speed and stamina. They aren't interested in money or looks just purely a good working dog. For example a collie lurcher is a greyhound(speed and stamina) and a collie(brains) this is because they need a smart dog that can pick its rabbits and easy to train where as a bull lurcher is a greyhound(speed and stamina) with a bull terrier type(for power and build).

Its hard to explain, I hope someone else can explain it better!

If you google it it will explain it a lot better than I can.

He is not a BYB breeder by any means and I will never buy off of a byb, I've already fell into that trap once before.

Add: Lurchers are one of the healthiest dogs out there. This gives a pretty good description-http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lurcher

I know some people with a sheep farm in NZ and they do the same. They have Lurcher mixes and they are amazing farm dogs and they breed them because they need to know for a fact their next dogs will be able to perform the duties the last ones did because that is what they do for a living. That being said they can`t have like 7-10 dogs to feed so they will generally give away the rest or sell them at a low price.

I mean, there was someone here in on Vancouver Island (Canada) who was selling `Lurchers` but they were just whippet standard poodle mixes, which is most definitely a backyard breeder. I would never get a Lurcher over here, they don`t really exist in North America really. At least being bred for farm dogs.

Is this guy letting them go for a fair price? My biggest concern would be that beacuse they are bred for working dogs, they will be pretty high energy (needing tons of mental stimulation and an outlet like agility or Triebball)

See in Ireland lurchers aren't in demand for pet homes like Labradors,german shepherds,pugs. Mainly because they aren't the prettiest or most intelligent or 'cool'.
The only people who have lurchers are people intending to work them or have farms etc.
They usually only sell to people they know, other people that have working dogs. You rarely see them in pet homes.

Let's put it this way, what I'm paying for this pup you probably wouldn't be able to buy a good hair dryer with lol.

The "Lurcher" for sale here was $800 dollars. As if. Cute little things of course, but had no working history at all. If I lived in Ireland I would have a Lurcher in a heartbeat! Do you intend to work the dog? Lurchers originated in Ireland I believe didn't they?

I like Flin or Flint You never know until you actually see the dog too! I had to say names out loud to Leo to choose one.
