An informative and entertaining read, Working Deerhounds, Lurchers and Longdogs considers the merits of working Scottish deerhounds and the hybrids produced from them. Bill Doherty's extensive experience of breeding and hunting with dogs and his knowledge of countryside pursuits allow him to reflect on the origins, abilities and characteristics of these dogs both as workers and as companions, providing a useful reference for experienced and novice working-dog owners alike. Working Deerhounds, Lurchers and Longdogs includes an anthology of true hunting stories, bringing together for the first time extracts of previously published works, to illustrate the many and varied talents of these dogs in a wide range of hunting situations. Bill Doherty skillfully illustrates his passion for hunting with running dogs, his affection for the countryside and his affinity with wildlife.
