The Lurcher has an excellent temperament. Calm, gentle, affectionate and loyal, Lurchers make ideal family pets and companion dogs.
Lurchers form a strong bond with their owners and their family. To that end they are loyal and trustworthy dogs and make ideal family pets. However they do need the company of humans. They are not a dog to be left outside in the yard all day unless you want a potentially destructive and disobedient dog. The Lurcher wants and needs its family around it. It needs to be part of the family unit.
