Lurchers are originally from Ireland and Great Britain where they
were originally bred in the 1600's. This breed was mainly used to
poach rabbits and hares.
These dogs are not bred specifically, and are therefore not considered
as a breed by many - rather as a crossbreed. The combinations that
is most common for this dog is the Greyhound and Terrier and the
Greyhound and Collie crossings.
