Lurcher Hound

Fine art print inspired by illustrations of dog breeds from 1804 by J. Scott.

Features a Lurcher Hound.

It is fabled that in the 14th and 15th century the English and Scottish governments banned commoners from owning sight-hounds, like Irish Wolfhounds, Scottish Deerhounds, and greyhounds, though no documentation from the time can be found to verify this. It is thought that Lurchers may have been bred to avoid legal complications during this time.
