Lurcher seemingly running on water evading the dog pack VIDEOThe lurcher is usually defined as a UK/ Ireland dog - a cross between a sight hound (often a greyhound in Australia) and any other non-sight hound breed (which can be a terrier but is often a deer or wolf hound it seems).
These guys often have great prey drives, and non social or unrestrained lurchers, because of their size, speed and endurance can cause havoc in many off lead parks. But that said all the ones I have met so far have been very independent but fun rather than aggressive.
Very often they seem to come out of now where, appears in a flourish then speeds off on their way to more exploring. That is pretty much how this random event and video I took occurred. In fact almost the entire meeting time on raw video is shown here.
this lurcher seems to keep to the prescribed behaviour of many fast dogs.
It knows it is likely to be the fastest around, so it will show off that speed and assume pack superiority. If it can't be caught, then its athletic prowess surely will impress all the other dogs. Surely when it comes time for the hunt, this dog will earn the right to be our leader.
The lurcher in this video was just toying with the other dogs (mostly from my dog walking pack) knowing that its speed and long legs would keep it well ahead of the other dogs. "Let's just see how close they can get before I leave them in the wake."
Yes it is hard as a dog or a human not to be impressed with this dogs motor boat speed.
