Another Greyhound cross, the Lurcher is created by breeding a Greyhound with a Terrier, herding breed or large scenthound with the idea of bringing in greater tenacity, intelligence or scenting ability. The variability in breeding means there’s great variability in size — Lurchers can weigh anywhere from 35 to 100 pounds. These hunting dogs tend to be calm and affectionate, so long as there are no cats or other small, furry creatures nearby.
