We are a small kennel and will only have the occasional litter. As a rule of thumb, we generally try to plan our breedings for whelp dates between October and March. We feel this gives our puppies the best edge at having the exposure and maturity when testing in the German system.
If we do not have a litter on the ground and you would like to be kept on a notification list, please let us know. We will not reserve without a deposit of $300. If you have any questions, we would be glad to answer them!
Zwinger vom Adlerberg K- Litter Breeding
We are happy to announce our planned “K” Litter breeding for Summer 2018.
Danica vom Adlerberg 0965/11 D2, AZP1, VGP3, HN, HDA2, Fw: V3 x Xam II vom Entenpfuhler Forst 0622/16 D1, S1, VGP1, BTR, SW20, HN, HDA2, Fw: V1x2
This is an exciting breeding between two dogs that complement each other’s traits in abilities and conformation, bringing an excellent balance to the breeding.
Danica was whelped in Idaho, and originally placed in a home in Michigan as pick of litter. She returned to Idaho for some training, where I fell in love with this dog all over again. I made the decision to buy her back.
Danica has a happy, up-beat, calm disposition and is a wonderful companion dog. She has always been a very cooperative and obedient dog that has been a pleasure and joy to work with.
Danica has beautiful conformation with very good bone and excellent dark pigment. She received a V3 2014 NADKC AM.
She has mastered hunting upland birds from Blue Grouse in the high elevations of Idaho, Chukar along the rugged cliffs along the Snake River, to the Pheasant in the prairies of South Dakota and everything in between. She is able to easily transition from running hard hunting upland game to lying in the duck blind for hours at a time.
She has proven herself to be an excellent tracking dog with several real world big game recoveries (deer, elk, moose and bear) as old as 30 plus hours, in all types of weather conditions.
Danica has always shown a well-balanced performance that is very much nose driven while maintaining a natural calmness, while being totally driven and fearless when working. She is my go to hunting companion.
Xam II – aka “Django” – has proven more than many other dogs at his age or ever will. In the 2017 season, he went from an outstanding looking puppy to Derby 1, Solms 1, VGP 1 (313 on a different continent and entirely strange settings and scents back in Germany), HN, LN, SG1 NADKC AM 2017, V-I x2 NADKC AM 2018. Xam (Django) is an impressive young male with a beautiful male head, excellent size and bone. He has beautiful dark pigment and carries himself well. Based on his additional sporting activities in IPO: (Passed the BH exam, which is an obedience qualifier for the IPO sport).
His high scoring success allowed him to receive the “2017 Lynn Slager Award”. In 2018, he already continued by passing the BTR and just a week ago, passing the 20 hour track under very hot and hard conditions back in Germany. At barely two and a half years, he is therefore qualified for the Kleemann 2018. Despite that proven versatility, it is his unbelievable high drive and speed that make him not only a fantastic companion but the once-in-a-lifetime dog. Always interacting with his handler, this dog hunts at any range and distance by the wave of a hand.
In the past year, Django has proven his sharpness on predator game repeatedly (raccoon and coyote). In Germany he has been exposed to boar multiple times. He brings everything one could hope for in a Deutsch Kurzhaar. As a daily companion at a veterinary hospital and in everyday life, he is exposed to other dogs and species, living in the house peacefully with a cat. Therefore, he rounds his hunting portfolio with a pleasant and very social personality.
As the sire of a large litter of 16 puppies in the fall, expectations are high to see his offspring in the field this and coming seasons.
Both of the dogs paired in this breeding have the outstanding qualities we want in our hunting companions. This litter should produce a great blend of traits, strong conformation, and all around working abilities with an emphasis on excellent nose, water, tracking, pointing and desire. We expect puppies from this pairing to be excellent versatile hunters, very biddable, strong in conformation and excellent home/hunting/companion dogs.
