New to the forum and seeking a DH was created by Glen
Hi
I began my research for a sight hound a couple years ago. Although I'm still open-minded about other breeds, I have put the Deerhound as my primary subject of research. If anyone can offer words of advice about the breed, please do. I have owned several dogs--as a boy, and later on as an adult. Even though I am a guy, I really love a nice friendly dog that's kind and companionable. I think I have chosen the correct breed in the DH. But I'd sure like to see more of them.

Cheers,
Glen

Glen you don't say whereabouts you live. But why not go to a show? If you are in the Midlands (UK) Crufts is at the NEC, hound day is Thursday 7th March.
Have a look at the list of other shows on the events pages mostly they are at the weekend so easier to get to, link is at the top of the page. All deerhound people love to talk about their dogs so go and introduce yourself to somebody and have a deerhound cuddle at the same time.
If you are not in the UK perhaps somebody from your part of the world could advise you.
Best of luck.

Glen,
a Deerhound sounds just like the dog you want...
However.... go to shows, visit breeders... even if they do not have pups for sale they will ( mostly... ) be pleased to show you their dogs, we do...

Thanks, Wendy. Interesting that you mentioned the event in the Midlands. Some of my family came from there nearly a hundred years ago. Anyhow, I'll have to miss that dog show since I am in Canada!

Cheers,
Glen

Whereabouts are yuou in Canada? we do have a few breeders here- a good thing to to do would be to get in contact with one/some and go and visit. This is how I got started, first went to a dog show , when still in Germany, just to hopefully see some ( 6 were enetered) and then I found a breeder not too far away from where I live now ( BC) and visted, talked to her. It took me another 6 years or so until I got my first, during which I read whatever I possibly could about them....
