Kromfohrlander Dog Description
These dogs were first bred in Germany during the 1940s, and they were the result of what was first thought to be a mistake. To mongrels were cross-bred, and the puppies that were born were thought to be extremely beautiful. Frau Schleifenbaum decided to breed more of these dogs. When one first looks at the Kromfohrlander is may appear as if this dog is a mixture of a Beagle and retriever. The density of the coat may vary, and it may be short, long, or wire-haired. The acceptable coat colors for this breed are white with brown marks. The Kromfohrlander should stand not taller than 15 inches, and it should weigh no more than 31 pounds.
The Kromfohrlander became a recognised breed by the FCI in 1998.
Country of Origin
The Kromfohrlander has a kind disposition. It is a reliable hunter, and it is quick to warn its owner of potential intruders, and this makes it an excellent watchdog. While it may play with children, and may not be cheerful with them, so it is important for owners to make sure it is properly socializing and train. The Kromfohrlander is an intelligent breed that can be trained without a large amount of difficulty.
One health problem that is particularly prevalent with these dogs is Inherited Stifle-Joint Disease, a problem that affects the joints of the dog. The Kromfohrlander will have a maximum life expectancy of 15 years.
The exercise needs of the Kromfohrlander are not well known. Owners will at least want to give it an average amount of exercise. Because of its size, it may be able to exercise itself without the assistance of its owner. The Kromfohrlander is an excellent breed for those who live in small homes or apartments. Owners will want to take it for extensive walks, and they should also allow it to run and play in a secure area.
Special Grooming Needs
The amount of grooming that is required for these dogs is dependent on the type of coat variation they have. The long and wire-haired version will need more extensive grooming than the short-haired version. Owners will want to make sure any mats or tangles that appear are removed, and the coat should be brushed or combed consistently. These dogs should only be given a bath when they need it.
