Welcome to Lurcher Link
The aim of this forum is to HELP LURCHERS IN DISTRESS... and the purpose of Lurcher Link is to act as a point of contact for rescues, dog wardens, vets, stray centres and the public.
Many Lurchers are destroyed each week because stray pounds are full and local rescues have no room to take any in. Yet in other parts of the country people are looking for Lurchers to rehome and because of this we act as a kind of "Dating Agency" for Lurchers, trying to find the right dog for the right family, from ANY rescue, to make space for other Lurchers to come into rescue and to save these dogs from being pts. We will also act as advisors to people who are newcomers to Lurchers; have behavioural problems with their dogs or just need someone to discuss problems with.
We are a liberal bunch and this forum was created with freedom of speech in mind by people who love Lurchers and the Lurcher world and wish to make a difference to their fate. What we are is a motley collection of people who love Lurchers and because we love Lurchers we respect each other's viewpoints. We may not agree with each other but we don't seek to silence opposing viewpoints or insist that our way is the only one.
Because of this we do have a lot of knowledge about living with and working Lurchers and running dogs and we do like to learn from each other. Oh and tell the odd joke or two. So welcome to the forum
