In choosing Axel we believe we will be able to replicate all of the great things we have been seeing at such a young age in the puppies produced in the last litter with Falk as well as what we see in the offspring sired by Axel.
In this litter we will be breeding on the same common ancestor line as our last breeding, "I litter vom Fuchsberg".
The genetics found in this litter and their offspring is what rationalized the expenditure for us to import Donna. We wanted to capture those genetic traits and build apon them for future hunters to enjoy.
Beyond the stringent and impressive criteria that needs met to qualify a Drahthaar to be bred this "I litter Vom Fuchsberg" also has consistently demonstrated their ability to do overnight 20 and 40 hour blood tracks.
While not everyone owning a versatile dog may have the desire to blood track we feel strongly this demonstrated ability is a testament to the dogs scenting ability, calmness, and mental facilities to be able to decipher and follow tracks of this age. This not only makes for a better blood tracking dog but a better retriever of cripples and finder of running birds.
It is also worth mentioning that many of these " I Litter Vom Fuchsberg" dogs have been marked as scent loud. This is a good quality to have when pursuing game other than upland birds and waterfowl and a trait desired in a truly versatile hunting dog.
We believe a versatile hunting dog should be able to hunt , point , and retrieve just as well as the best of the specialist while being able to transition seamlessly between activities.
Additionally this breeding will be have "O" litter dachsweisse represented on both the sire and dams side. The "O" Litter Dachsweisse dogs have been consistantly producing top level versatile dogs that are high scorers whether it is in the field, water, or forest and like the "I" litter Fuchsberg dogs produce fantastic coats, confirmation, and disposition.
