Hi All was created by Taffi
My name is Donna, owner of Taffi - he is a 7mth old deerhound lurcher (lots of deerhound bit of beddy), this is my first time on any forum. I decided to join because I have benefited from so much useful advice from this site :) Everyday is a pleasure with Taffi, he is so different from my other dogs, he is currently 24" and I have no idea how big he is going to get or how his coat is going to change, he is black at the mo, with a few bits of grey coming on his back and white spot to chin and chest, his coat on his face is soooo soft. Anyway, just wanted to say hi - anyone have any predictions for his height, weight and coat - all welcome. xx

Thank you for your welcome Pam, Joerg and Yoki + Lucy. I am still trying to get the hang of the forum. I will try and put some more pictures of Taffi up, I know he is a lurcher but I am very proud that he has some deerhound in him. xx

Hi Donna, good to meet you and the beautiful Taffi - how lucky you are. Hard to say how tall he's going to be but he's going well at 24" at 7 months - he's possibly got another 6-11 months growth. On the other hand the Bedlington bit might be a factor in his final height. Anyway it doesn't really matter, he's lovely. I've got two Deerhound crosses - Blue (DH X greyhound) and Winnie (DH X Irish Wolfhound) both are 30" tts.

Thanks for the photos - more are always welcome!

What a cute wee guy he is! Welcome to the forum and have tons of fun with sweet Taffi. I have a 7mths old deerhound puppy, a gilr named luna- and 3 adult deerhounds....Luna was roughly 27" tall 3 weeks ago and weighed 32kg- for more on both by now! Pics show with about 6mths.

Wow Verenav, Luna sounds fab, much bigger than Taff - unfortunately for some reason I cant open the photo you attached but if she is the dog on your profile pic she is lovely. I am loving seeing all these photos of such lovely dogs - there are some great profile pictures. So you have 4 deerhounds!! I would love another deerhound type, my poor Taffi has to put up with 3 terriers and 2 cats ;) our house can be a bit mad as they all live indoors with us as part of family - will have to wait till we can get another. The terriers do run with Taff but he is a bit too much for them at times, we meet up with a lively lab on our walks who loves to run with him :)

That's what I thought- she will be a big girl, still, even a smaller deerhound would be taller than lovely Taffi by now. His home sounds great for him! Play, play, play, ther very best thing for a pup. what ind of terriers do you have? many years ago I was involved with them , namely Cairnterriers, but had friends with all kinds of Terrier breeds. Will try to attach the head shot now, didn't work out with my first try yesterday...

soemthing not quite right with uploading pics - lost a whole post and pic- ok, both again. Youir home souns just right for young Taffi- play, play, play...What kind of Terriers do you have? I used to have Cairnterriers and had friends with all kinds of different Terrier breeds- still like them a lot, though it seems "a life time ago" by now, having totally fallen for the Deerhounds....

I know I am disagreeing with Pam ( this is not the first time...) I would say Taff will grow another 1 or 2 inches up to 9 months or so and then start to fill out, he is a good looking boy. BTW did you know that the 2nd Alfred on the TV show "Heartbeat" is ( supposedly ) a Deerhound/Bedlington cross..
You do know that Deerhounds are addictive.... you won't be able to stop at just one..... we have 4 .....

Also hope you enjoy him, they are the most wonderful dogs.

What a sweetheart :kiss:

I have a DH x greyhound who is 30" and 2 beddie whippets who are about 19" beware of the cheekybeddyness mine are quite norty but utterly adorable and great Deerhound companions so your Taff should be a great fun combination ;)

Id say probably a couple more inches of groth to go, just my kind of dog :cheer:

Hi Dave and Claire. My terriers are Max, lakeland 16yrs - Meg & Flea allsorts (rescued from Cyprus when we lived there) 5yrs they are fab but typical terriers, yappy. Taff is completely different nature to the them, he is laid back, quiet, a bit aloof loves fuss and sitting with his head on my lap :) - but, does get up to mischief when left, shredded toilet paper etc. I dont mind how big he gets, its just interesting seeing how they change as they grow - its their character thats important. After 20yrs of terriers I am completely in love with lurchers & deerhounds. will put some pics of my terriers -

Really, really lovely dogs! Taffi looks ( and sounds) a lot like deerhound, ok, a "half-seized deerhound"- also the movement he has on that pic- all flying puppy legs and tail and curves....

Taffi looks stunning, even if he doesn't grow much more, he's still a looker and looks to be well proportioned. Looks like you have a cracking dog to add to your fine pack.

It's been a while since being on the site, Taffi is now 15 mths old and is now fully grown (I think), he is just about 26" and still adorable :)
