Considered by many to be the original designer crossbreed, the Lurcher is a cross between one or more sighthounds and one or more pastoral working breeds. They were developed at a time when poor people were forbidden by law to own Greyhounds.

Squirrel lovers or owners of small furries – possibly including cats. The prey drive of a Lurcher is so high that they just won't mix!
