A fun-loving, affectionate and lovable breed. Lurchers were bred to hunt rabbits and hares in Ireland and Great Britain in the 1600s. They have inherited fast agile movements from the sighthound crosses in them. Lurchers have the strong hunting instincts of the sighthounds. This combination creates a good, obedient dog that learns commands fast. Good for outdoor type families, they are usually gentle with people, which makes for an amenable companion. They will chase and kill small game and may consider cats, and even small dogs, to be prey. Be sure to provide a safe area for these dogs to run. They enjoy a good walk but like nothing better than settling down on the sofa with their family.
