Bedlington Whippet rehome

Post by Ben » Thu Oct 22 2020 13:49

This is Deuce, he’s a 6yr old Bedlington Terrier X Whippet, I would say he is a good 70% Terrier because he’s stocky and isn’t fussed about being out in the rain with no coat on. He is fully intact and would make a great ratter.

The owner is looking to rehome him because she’s expecting a baby and Deuce can be a bit snappy so she wouldn’t trust him around a small child.

I went to meet him today with my Mum’s dog Charley (same cross, 10yrs old) with a view to rehoming him at my parents but unfortunately it didn’t go well, Deuce snapped at Charl three times so there is no way they could live together. Poor Charl hated every minute of it and couldn’t wait to get back in the car!!

I would say Deuce needs an experienced owner with no children and no cats/rabbits, possibly another dog but it would either need to be female or bigger than Deuce, I’m sure the reason he’s a bit feisty is because he’s still got his b******s but never used them!

If anyone is genuinely interested please send me a PM and I can pass your details on, the owner is from Bury and is lovely.

When introducing dogs its best to do it on neutral ground otherwise the dogs who's territory is being invaded will always put on a show of ownership of various levels of severity.

The BedxJR is the cross of choice of anyone who uses ferrets on land where netting is difficult and unsafe to use a gun.

Best of luck but with winter coming I doubt you will have any trouble finding a new owner.

Beware of it being sold on after someone rehomes it, dogs are making big money now. If she’s worried about it snapping at a baby, she needs to put it down, simple as. Not put it on the merry go round.

I dissagree.
Snappers are not dogs that bite, the snap is just a warning, dogs that bite just do it.

Well he said she was having a new baby and was worried, enough said if you ask me. The dogs I keep have very high drive compared to your average pot licker. So any signs of aggression towards people and their gone.
Tell me so, what happens when the snap connects with a child’s face or and old persons leg??

Can we not turn this into a dog behavioural debate please.

We did meet on neutral ground, the dog basically just needs his nuts off or stud him.

One or two snaps (not bites) does not warrant putting the dog down, I am sure she’ll find a nice home for him.

I keep terriers and lurchers, also a couple of gundogs too. The terriers and lurchers are definitely not for the faint hearted. Thankfully they are kept between a few of us, no money involved and never sold to strangers.
But in fairness, they are not gassy and normal not too dog aggressive as long as you throw plenty of graft at them. I only had two that I couldn’t trust around people or dogs.

Got some bull in them?
None of my lurchers were dog or people aggressive, and they all adored the kids...anything in a fur coat with long ears or a bushy tail things were different (also with anyone elses kitty that was daft enough to come on "their" garden as well)

Back on topic...bedlingtons and whippets crossed or not arent noted people snappers, only thing they do given the chance is hog the settee

Snaps are all part of dogs lives, it's how young pups are put in their place by the bitch or other dogs if they cross the line and in later life as a reminder who is top dog.
It's only people who know little about dogs that see it as aggression

No bull in the terriers, I think if you need to put bull(the right stuff) in your line, it’s not up too much. No need for bull in them, game enough.
One of my lurchers is3/8s bull, it’s the proper old wheaten that puts the spice in them.

Bull x have been about since the 80s. They definitely have a place in the field. Not everyones cup of tea though.

Unfortunately rabbits here are as scarce as ever, hares are on the increase though, deer are plague proportion and here in the west there is a county wide badger cull.....long overdue

Yes rabbits are an endangered species here in Ireland too! Still a few healthy pockets though!

Never had bull in my dogs Stew
Greyhound, collie, deer hound, and whippet were all you needed to make a good running dog
Salukis were born brain dead so never used them.

If you ever wanted to put wind into a line, look no further then the saluki. What I’ve seen is the owners are the brain dead ones, too smart for a lot of lads. To much dog for the average joe. With that statement you obviously lived and owned them in the past. Describe how they are brain dead??
Ps: I wouldn’t be without a drop of saluki in a lurcher.

I never had one but several of my mates did...they were a nightmare. Taking off over the hill for no reason, escaping from home and coming back a day or 3 later , feckers where livestock were concerned.
My dogs ran rings round them as well.
I know people who had good salukis ... they were the odd ones out :laughs:
