Lurcher Dogs & Puppies for Sale

Lurchers are the hidden gems of the dog world, combining the best of sighthound breeds with the endurance of working dogs. If you're considering bringing a Lurcher into your life, you'll need to understand what makes these dogs unique and how to find the perfect fit for your family. Read our guide to buying and rehoming a dog safely for more information.

What are the characteristics of a Lurcher?

Lurchers are not actually a breed, but a type of dog. They're crossbreeds, typically a sighthound mixed with a herding dog or terrier. This mix gives Lurchers their distinctive appearance and varied coat types, ranging from sleek to rough. Known for their speed, intelligence, and gentle nature, Lurchers can make fantastic pets. They are typically affectionate, good-natured, and adaptable, thriving in a home environment where they can be part of the family.

Are Lurchers a good choice for families?

Yes, Lurchers can be wonderful family dogs. They are known for being particularly gentle and patient with children. Their laid-back nature makes them an excellent choice for families, as long as they have enough space to stretch their legs and a comfortable spot to relax. Lurchers are social animals, and usually get along well with other dogs as long as they're properly socialised.

Are there any downsides to owning a Lurcher?

As they're part sighthound, potential Lurcher owners should be mindful of their strong prey drive. Walks are often best either on-lead or in a secured area like a dog field, and they aren't the best choice if you already have cats in the home. While they are generally low-maintenance as far as grooming goes, they need a lot of exercise and mental stimulation. Without this, Lurchers can become bored and potentially destructive.

How much does a Lurcher puppy cost?

The cost of a Lurcher puppy can vary widely, often depending on the mix, location, and whether the puppy has had any vaccinations. Generally they are one of the more reasonably-priced breeds, with prices ranging from £200 to £600. Its important to remember the ongoing costs of care, including food, vet bills, and insurance.

How long do Lurchers typically live?

As with many mixed-breed dogs, Lurchers have a relatively long lifespan for their size. They can often live12 to 15 years with proper care.

Are there any common health issues I should be aware of?

Lurchers are generally healthy, but they can be prone to conditions common in their sighthound and working dog parents. This will depend on which breeds a lurcher is mixed from, but can include things like hip dysplasia, bloat, and certain genetic disorders. Regular vet check-ups and a healthy lifestyle are important for their well-being.

How much grooming do Lurchers need?

Lurchers can have a range of different coat types, and their grooming needs vary accordingly. Smooth-coated Lurchers need little in the way of grooming, while rough or long-coated Lurchers need regular brushing to prevent matting.

Is a Lurcher the right dog for me if I have a small living space?

Lurchers can adapt to living in smaller homes as long as they get enough exercise outside - they are notorious for finding the most comfortable spot in the house and making it their own. A daily routine of walks and play sessions is important for their physical and mental health.

How often should I exercise my Lurcher?

As above, Lurchers need daily exercise to stay healthy and happy. They benefit from long walks, runs, and the opportunity to sprint in a secure space such as a dog field. Mental stimulation through training and play is also important to keep their intelligent minds engaged.
