Anyone know of breeders of bull lurchers or lurchers with collie in them for hunting? Can only find UK ones. I'm fine with anywhere in north America. I know theyre out there seeing how many are in shelters, so where are they? Prefer a breeder who has mixes with predominately sighthound with a bit of bull or collie in the background.

I had to google "lurcher" as I'd never heard of the breed. Per Wikipedia:
The lurcher is a cross-bred dog, the result of mating a sighthound with a dog of another type, most commonly a herding dog or a terrier. Historically a poacher's dog, lurchers in modern times are kept as pets, hunting dogs and in racing.

Are you looking for one for hunting? If so, for what species will you hunt?

I was mostly looking for one because they're supposed to be pretty good at many things and I have seen some nice ones. I also love sighthounds who hunt but purebreds don't often excel at the actual kill. I plan on hunting rabbits, coyotes, and iguanas for the most part. Bull lurchers are lurchers x a bull breed and they're often multigenerational to be fast with some grit to them... there's breeders in the usa supposedly just can't find them

First I had to google the dog breed, then I had to google where iguanas could be hunted (looks like southern Florida).
Where are you planning to run this dog on rabbit, coyote and iguana?
