Other Names
  • Greyhound Bull Terrier

The Bull Greyhound Terrier is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Greyhound and the Bull Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Sherlock the Lurcher: 3/4 Greyhound/ 1/4 Bull Terrier mix breed dog at 1 year old—"Sherlock has the same markings as his sire, and seems to still be growing at 1 year old. His sire was waist high to me. He came from a litter of 13 pups, blues, whites, blacks and golds. At 1 year his walking, recall, house training and retrieving are pretty consistent! I crate trained him which worked wonders but recently folded it and put it away. He has taken up residence along the length of the 3 seater sofa and can be trusted overnight and afternoons to simple sleep! He has been really well socialised and loves dogs and people and is much admired. This can sometimes be problematic because he wants to meet everyone, and not everyone loves a big dog galloping towards them. Sherlock seems to have learned this now and seems chuffed to be praised for not foisting himself on others. I had him snipped at 8 months old. He was becoming very dominating by jumping up on visitors, humping everything and weeing on everything outside, but he quickly calmed down after the op and all those behaviours lessened and are almost completely gone! He does like to jump up to greet people and this has been the hardest thing to deal with as it can be dangerous at his size of 68 pounds (31 kg.)."

Sherlock the Lurcher: 3/4 Greyhound/ 1/4 Bull Terrier mix breed dog at 1 year old—"His training is showing rewards and his personality is very sensible and sweet! He has been known to tell off other dogs for unacceptable behaviour and to nudge sticks for other dogs to catch in the river when they can't reach! He has become so affectionate and sweet."

Sherlock the Lurcher: 3/4 Greyhound/ 1/4 Bull Terrier mix breed puppy at 8 weeks old—"As a puppy he was a little horror, due to not being handled much, and was guarding his food, but I instilled the WAIT into the feeding routine. Having only had cats before I had no idea about training a dog. I learned to use love and compassionate training along with communication following the dog's natural instincts."

Sherlock the Lurcher: 3/4 Greyhound/ 1/4 Bull Terrier mix breed puppy at 8 weeks old—"I got to meet loads of other Lurcher sighthound lovers and benefit from their advice and experience. There were many times over the past year, raising a puppy, that I nearly gave up, but with all these groups and advice sources, I got through it and helped my puppy grow into a brilliant dog. I am so glad! He doesn't even mind kids laying with his tail when he's eating, plays fetch for a few rounds but will always rather chase a doggy friend for an hour instead! Sherlock has a great temperament, is quite vocal and seems to understand me best when I actually talk to him, rather than just expect him to follow simple commands. He needs a good 1 hour walk every morning and one or two 15/30 min walks in the afternoon/evening and is very content with that. Once a week or so we are fortunate to have some lovely friends who drive us out to the big woods, beaches and so on where he runs free and happy!"
