Gosch Kennels is pleased to announce the breeding of our female Anna vom Haus Hessling to Jeiko vom Jakobsbrunnen. This was a breeding done by surgical insemination with frozen semen at the Iowa State University Teaching Hospital. This is the first Fritz sired litter available in a decade. We are keeping three pups from this litter and have two females still available. We are looking for loving homes where the new owners will be committed to hunting and NAVHDA testing their pups. Price is $1500. Please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
Both Anna and Fritz were imported from Germany. Fritz is unrivaled in terms of the impact he has had on the Small Munsterlander breed in the United States. He can be found in the pedigree of many of the dogs that have been produced here in the States and for good reason. While he was a great dog in his own right, his true value comes in his ability to pass his qualities on to his progeny. According to SMCNA testing database information Fritz has sired 79 puppies to date. Of those, 30 have been run in the NAVHDA Natural Ability test. 9 pups received Prize I scores, 7 pups received Prize II scores, 3 pups received Prize III scores, 5 received No Prize and 6 were tested for evaluation only. At the Utility level Fritz pups were also very successful with 8 different Fritz pups having been UT tested 4 receiving a Prize I, one receiving a Prize II and Prize III, respectively, and two not passing. His 1996 litter was also a UT Breeders Award litter, the first of only two ever earned by a Small Munsterlander litter. Fritz sired 4 dogs that ran in the Invitational with one, VC Hans, passing. It is hard to imagine what his progeny could have done in todays environment where NAVHDA testing is common and trainers, both pro and amateur, have more experience running and training for the tests.
When you expand the record to include dogs that Fritz is the grandfather of the list increases exponentially. When I researched the testing records for this litter there were 91 dogs listed that had run NAVHDA Utility tests. Fritz was the father of 8 and the grandfather of 17 including the second Small Munsterlander to earn a Versatile Champion title, VC Bayside Run's Boudoin. In the Natural Ability test the list is almost too long to count (I got to 69 from 4 of Fritz's pups before I quit).
Due to the quality and the scarcity of the available Fritz semen we did not come to the decision to use Anna as the female for this litter lightly. We evaluated all of our females and kept coming back to Anna's blend of personality, temperament, structure, and hunting ability as the best choice for this breeding. She has been one of our top performers since her second season and averages 30 trips in the field per year. Anna has proven herself in the field countless times on pheasants, quail, waterfowl, and doves. She is excellent in the water and has a very good, solid point. If she has weaknesses it would be Canada geese (on the two or three she has gotten a chance to retrieve she has not) and she is pretty vocal. She has done well on snow geese bring back 27 on one day in South Dakota, her first snow goose hunt.
Anna's sire, dam. and littermates have done well in testing in Germany. Her sire, Oscar vom Falkenstein, did very well in the VJP scoring a 75, a 191 in the HZP, a 188 in the B-HZP, and a 308 in the VGP. Her dam, Ilka vom Teichhof, scored a 66 in the VJP and a very good 322 in the VGP. Anna's Litter mate results from Germany: August – HD frei, HQ 1,00, no more information available Anton – HD frei, HQ, DGStB.54124, Spl, HN, VJP (72 points), HZP (191 points) VGP(318 points /3. price /ÜF), european breeding show: European winner with excellent, breeding show: SG- V-54 (very good-excellent with 54 cm hight) Artus – no information available Alpha – HD frei, HQ 1,03, Spl, HN, VJP (72), HZP (191), SG-V-50 (very good-excellent with 50 cm hight) Alessa – HD frei, HQ 0,95, Spl, LN, VJP (63), HZP (179), G-SG-53 (good-very good with 53 cm hight) Andra– HD frei, DGStB.53517 Spl, HZP/olE(140), VJP(70), HZP(186), VGP(301/1.PR/TF), SG-SG-51 Aika - Spl, VJP(65), HZP(174)
We are looking for serious hunting homes that will test at the Natural Ability level and would prefer them to test at the Utility level as well. Normally we don't require testing, but due to the circumstances of our getting the frozen semen we are going to be more stringent on this point. For more info please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
All of our pups are vet checked and are current on their shots with dew claws removed before leaving for their new homes. We also recommend taking you pup to the vet within three days after it arrives. We guarantee the hips of our pups until 26 months old and require PennHIP for the testing method. If a refund for genetic health issue is ever needed we will refund up to the purchase price of the dog and allow you to keep the dog, but we will not be responsible for any vet bills incurred. No other warranty is either expressed or implied. For any questions please let me know. While we prefer local pickup, we do ship out of Omaha, Nebraska and prefer Continental Airlines when possible. Northwest is also available if the temperature restrictions are not in place. Shipping usually runs around $250 paid by the buyer.
