    That's interesting CD.
    Are they crossing staghounds? we are seeing a lot of possible greyhound and staghound crosses in some of the country pounds? I mean not to each other but maybe with a bull breed. Do people who own pigging dogs desex them? Or maybe they are oops litters?
    We were discussing this the other day and thought maybe they were crossing them for speed????

    Yes they cross for speed & most pig dog owners breed their own dogs & yes there is alot that could need up in a pound. They cross say a staghound with a bull arab, most have some wolfhound in them tese days too. Another popular x atm is the ban dog x wolfhound then breed back to a staghound xbullarab x, so really a mixed breed killing mechine as thats what they've been breed & trained for.
    I must add I do know of SOME respondsable piggers & they mainly use pointers & bull arabs & their dogs are outfitted in protective vest & GPS. Also their dogs are kennel/penned when not being trained or used but I am afraid there are many more that let trained piggers run the streets/farms. We had to shot 1 very recently as it was killing our sheep & we caught in mid kill 1 night. Very sad not really the dogs fault but if you don't shot it they will be back.

    That explains a lot. Have you see or heard about them crossing a bull breed with a greyhound?

    Well some bull arab breeders bred their own strain of Bull arab by crossing a pittbull with a greyhound & then breed that back to a pittbull x cattle dog.
    Greyhounds & hounds in general are VERY popular for crossbreeding with large bull like breeds so they get their game personality, large but agile dog, extreme speed for short bursts & the stamina to hunt hard going country all night long.

    Great read on the change in thje Neo breed.
    I too am worried about what the show scence can do to distroy good breeds as they seem to want to super size every large breed, think extremes in type are the ideal & some judges reward fad breeding(breeding just for colour or size say).
    Poeple seem to have forgotten what a great working breed the Neo can be & that they should not be seen as lumbering & having trouble getting around the ring more than once without a rest.

    That,s why the Staghound is nearly on the verge of extinction. It only is found in western victoria and south australia in the hands of a few enthusiasts who have kept the strain pure for it,s original purpose. I doubt very much you would ever find a Staghound at a pound as they are very rare and highly prized these days and you would be more inclined to find Deerhound Greyhound crosses or other types of mixed bred sight hounds.

    Very true that the deerhounds are more commen but some pig breeders do have some staghounds for the purpose of crossbreeding.
    Very sad really the amount of good old hunting breeds that are being destroyed by cross breeding & bad reps due to the way many of these poeple keep there dogs.
