The staghounds were someone else' that put needed to make them tough enough for the fight. By using my dogs he got the fight without the loss of a lot of speed. I didn't run coyotes except when they presented themselves. LOL I also didn't pick the body style they ended up with. I needed dogs that could push fast game and it took three generation of pushing them a lot of miles over a mixture of terrain to pick my breeding stock. They evolved to what they ended up because that is the form the function said what was the best for the job. Several generations is what picked the form. They just are not suitable to walk the show room floor.
