The dog is 7 now, He is not Kc reg.The mother was gutchcommon lines but i have no  breeding history of her.The sire i have the breeding on paper going back to the GT GT GT Grandparents a lot of g.newcombes old dogs in him.There is some fell and border blood in him way back.You couldnt compare him to a lurcher or a whippet ferreting but a running dog is not allowed on the permissions i have. A good marking dog holds in the net till i get there very good temperament easy to live with. All the land i ferret is in woods/copses/scrubland he does ok for me. Thanks. atb.

I worked lurchers from the early 80s till a few years ago saw quite a few whippet/greys and whippet crosses. In all that time i have never seen a pure whippet work i know a lot of people rate them highly. i have seen a good number of beddy/whippet types good ferreting/mooching dogs i like them a lot. atb.

The grandfather of my whippet was a decent enough dog at lamping and ferreting think the most he had whilst lamping was 10 but sadly he had to be put down as he was kicked by a horse whilst out ferreting my whippet isn't the dainty ones we usually see though he's about 20 inches high and stronger built

Your beddy darbo gives the impression of being quite calm and relaxed at ferreting ?
I got the impression they could be stubborn little buggers who went tearing off and did there own thing.
Yours looks a cracking ferreting companion

Im always honest about anything Terry when he was a young dog he was very full on and i had to have the patience of a saint. He works close to me a good marking dog. i always trained pups with a gundog check cord for recall/stay/ direction etc that way i am in control not the other way round.Not everyone would agree but it has worked for me over the years.He is very calm when out ferreting etc.A lurcher/whippet would be much more versatile especially on open fields but all my ferreting is around brambles woodland scrub etc so he does ok marking holding in the net etc.i have used russells also for the same job and 1 i had was a cracker got him in 1985 lived 17 years a sad sad day when that dog died. atb,
