    We had a JRT cross who lived to be 18, never knew what she was crossed with but there was nothing terrier about her character, the same for Jay our 7year old full JRT, I've seen amouse walk past her and she hasn't batted an eyelid!!
    Scruff our 3 year old terrier cross is great fun and very typical. She digs , sniffs everything, and shakes everything[including my underwear:rolleyes:].
    Moll is a fab dog, doing everything Springer style.

    Are any of yours not typical of their breed?

    No,my beagle is completely typical,

    sleeps all day and all night if allowed!
    had crap recall,when he was younger
    likes to sniff out peoples pockets and handbags
    gorgeous eyes and floppy ears that lets him get away with murder
    beautiful beagle bay and howl
    fantastic with kids and other dogs

    oh yeah maybe untypical,
    he is not greedy,most of the time,he will leave his food and graze all day,
    his recall has gotten so good he is off lead,which is untypical for a beagle,can't think of anything else:)

    I have a greyhound who is very high energy (3 hours of walks a day!), very vocal - she barks whines, grumbles and sings all the time and not at all sensitive in typical sighthound fashion. Like you my other greyhound is completely typical - sensitive, quiet and as lazy as can be.
