You should try Kilbourne Deerhounds, it was glenis that helped us find out first puppy back in 2005. I am sure she will know who has a litter.
You could also try going to a few shows and meet a few Deerhound people.

But I'm sure they'd be good for anyone wanting a large, sound lurcher as a pet. A couple of years ago I criticised them on THL as pointless and got angry replies from people with pups from them, to the effect that they take back any of their pups that need rehoming for whatever reason.

This is my pup from Greetwell. I cannot fault them. Yes they do turn out a few litters a year. But they are in demand.
Not all of us who love deerhounds can afford £1000 for a pup, and I'm not interested in showing.

As you can see they are a close approximation. Same sweet nature. dh:)

A nice looking dog Ci Coch. What height is he at the shoulder?
Part of my original criticism was that they were being sold partly as working dogs when rats and rabbits are the only legal quarry in your country. I didn't believe their working qualities had genuinely been assessed.
Does yours show any inclination or ability in that line I wonder??? (Not a criticism, I'm genuinely curious).

Thanks, he's a lovely boy. He's about 30 inches - maybe a little more.
I'm not sure of the assessment of their working abilities. It depends on whether you consider hunting rabbits as a valid class of working.
It always interests me when people talk about working qualities in deerhounds.

Given that as you say, legally we cannot hunt anything other than rabbits and rats anymore ( ive never heard of anyone hunting rats with a deerhound !), there is no way
to assess any deerhound's hunting qualities if you only consider deer as a true test of their ability.

I hunted rabbits quite regularly with my previous Deerhound , and he performed quite adequately compared to my friends lurchers of various sizes.
Given his size and the small field dimensions we have around here, I was more than happy with the 50% catch rate. As I said to the breeder of my new pup, when he expressed concerns
over what would happen if he didn't perform, I don't really care how he performs as long as he enjoys himself while he's exercising the rabbits.

I've not really given the pup him much opportunity to prove his ability so far. Up to now I've been working on his recall and stock control. He's still
quite a baby so I'm taking it slow. I let him have a go on a lure course a couple of months back at a local country show, but he showed no interest whatsoever, but my old deerhound
wasn't interested in anything that wasn't alive either. He's had a couple of impromtu runs , and was very interested in them. Unfortunately one of them was a cat ! Thankfully he didn't catch it.
The hunting season is nearly upon us , so we'll see how he performs.
