Lurchers are actually Mixed Breed dogs and are thought to be some of the first-ever “designer crossbreeds”. They are a cross between a sighthound (Greyhound, Whippet) and a pastoral working dog (Border Collie, Terrier). These graceful animals are known for their slender bodies and good temperaments. However, they can greatly vary in terms of size, colour, and coat type depending on what they are bred with. Additionally, they are clever dogs who pick up new skills easily and are incredibly fast. Lurchers are a jack of all trades and are ideal for work as animal actors and dog models.
