The Australian Staghound is a hybrid of the Greyhound and the Scottish Deerhound dogs that were brought to Australia by European settlers. They were used for hunting in Australia dating back to the late 1700s, but haven't been recognized as a distinct breed. The Australian Staghound is a distant cousin of the American Staghound, with a distinct bloodline that's native to Australia. Staghounds are bred specifically for coursing, or hunting by sight. [1] "Australian Staghounds" are the type of dog known as "Lurchers" in the United Kingdom.
