My name is Bill and I have just been adopted by a lovely couple from a greyhound/whippet/lurcher rescue here in UK. My owners were told I am none of them but a mixture of lots laugh out loud I was rescued from a gypsy traveller site in Wales and very emaciated when I was rescued and I was in the rescue for 18 months.

I don't bark and get very excited by small dogs, small animals and cats so my new family were wondering if you would class me as lurcher? They were told that I may have bull breed in me (Staffordshire bull terrier, bull mastif or English bull terrier) and they think I have some kind of sight hound/long dog in me. There are a few photos of me on my page which may give you more of an idea cheer

You sure look like a Lurcher, Bill way to go

Your boy certainly looks more Lurcher like than my Tyler, but he has Lab in him too which has made him more chunky in appearance.
