History

The study of the history of hunting teaches us that centuries ago there were hunting dogs very similar to the current one German Spaniel. At that time they were used to hunt.

Breeding of the breed controlled in a herd book began in the early 20th century, with a few suitable bitches. The first representative of the German Spaniel was Mr. Augusta 1834 L, a Staufenberg dog in Upper Bavaria.

At first there were only brown dogs with partial white markings and dogs with white markings.. The latter had small red spots on the head and limbs, calls “fire marks”. It was the bitch Baby auf de Schanze 1838 L the one that introduced the roan in the race. Rudolf Friess, a dog lover who for decades had a great influence on the breeding of the German Spaniel, introduced separate breeding of the brown and roan varieties.

Despite the narrow initial breeding base, put in place an essential requirement to avoid damage due to inbreeding through selective mating. The separation of the two colors is also justified by a certain disparity in the natural qualities of the German Spaniel. Chestnut trees were easier to drive over short distances and more persistent on the track, while the roans had a highly developed penetration over long distances.

These different natural gifts are no longer a reliable differential criterion today., since in the meantime, for many reasons, there have been repeated crosses between the two color varieties. However, in principle, the separation still maintains a certain reserve of unrelated blood within the race today.

The German Spaniel it is and continues to be bred by hunters and for hunters as a hunting dog with great versatility.

After WWI and WWII, the breed was severely reduced and the reintroduction of the English Pointer became important to rebuild the brood.

    The first Pudelpointers in North America were imported into 1956. After the foundations of the breed were laid, in 1977 The Club of the Pudelpointer from North America.

    Combined with the exceptional abilities of the English Pointer to work on the plains, namely, a fine and receptive nose even at a distance, a quick search that covers a lot of ground and firm stops, we have created a versatile and genetically strong hunting dog that meets the requirements of hunting.

    Germany is very careful in preserving the health of the breed, with increased vigilance against hip dysplasia and epilepsy. In addition, the Pudlepointers currently play an important role in hunting events, since only dogs that have participated successfully in them are registered in the pedigree registry.

    Grifón Korthals

    Vigorous, fiery and proud, the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon he is very attached to his master and his territory, who watches.

    History

    The Wirehaired Pointing Griffon It is a breed of dog of French origin. Their ancestors are Dutch, but shown as a French race, It was in France where he developed.

    This breed is still relatively rare in the Americas as well as in United Kingdom, Although it is recognized by their respective Kennel Clubs, as well as the Federation Cynologique Internationale (CRF not. 107).

    Grifón de muestra Korthals de pelo duro

    The culprit of the existence of Korthals Griffon was a man named Eduard Karel Korthals, born the 16 in November of 1851 in Amsterdam to, He was the son of a rich manufacturer of ships which possessed a strong interest in the breeding of hunting dogs, to the extent that his son inherited that passion and as a result and the ability for business, the beautiful was born Griffon, protagonist of this post.

    His dream was to create the ideal hunting dog, versatile, with extreme resistance, force and devotion to his master. The dog, also, I would have to know working near his master, be docile and very capable of learning. In 1873 to the 22 years of age and with the financial support of his father, He settled near some friends in Hesse (Germany) a region known for its great fondness for hunting with dogs and dedicated itself to the breeding of purebred dogs Griffon.

    Four years later, one of his friends, the prince of Solms-Braunfels, I am confident the management of his kennel "Bibesheim" (was then, the most famous of Germany) It was devoted especially to the breeding of dogs English Pointer, This change in his life not prevented it for nothing, continue with the development of their race Griffon.

    Soon Eduard Korthals became one of the largest breeders nationwide, very proud and sure of his work of selection, breeding began with seven specimens of Griffon of different kinds, hard hair, woolly hair, barbets, a mestizo German short hair, etc. He called "The seven Patriarcar" and their names were: Bank, Hector, Janus, Satan, Donna, Junon and Mouche. Thus begins the story that after twenty years, resulted in the birth of a specific race of Griffon with wire hair, Griffon, with blood of “Pointer” (Although not pure, then we have) and beautiful dog, it must be said ...

    We must also tell which, Eduard Korthals carried out ruthless work in his breeding program, with very close consanguinity coupling and many deaths on the road, well Yes..., the history has beautiful parts and others less so. Y, Here comes the bomb! A total of 600 dogs, only kept alive to 62 and he made them work in the Woods, in swamps, in Plains, in different seasons, to see how they worked in different situations and hunting tasks.

    In creating your Wirehaired Pointing, Korthals did not use all the blood purity of the English Pointer, because after having tried, realized that the mixture led to his Griffon lose some of its most important features.

    With his method of consanguinity, exhaustive selection and unit, the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon It was of such quality that many specialists in the canine world in Germany, in Belgium, in the Netherlands, in France and several parts of Europe, they were stunned, Given the Korthals had created a dog like no other, a dog with an essential width, a high speed in search, a well-developed sense of smell and, In short, its versatility.

    The 15 in November of 1887, supported by the contributions of a Commission formed by 16 reputed breeders and chaired by the Prince of Solm-Braunfels (who years earlier had been entrusted to Eduar Korthals-- the management of his kennel "Bibesheim"), Eduar Korthals wrote the standard of Korthals Griffon, that curiously never amended since then. The following year, He created a Club specializing in race whose objective was to bring together all the lovers of the Griffon Griffon wire-haired in several countries and until his death in 1896, He devoted himself to the improvement and dissemination of their race. He died of laryngeal cancer 4 in July of 1896 in the hatchery Bibeishem.

    But despite his death, his ideas continued living, then many followers and friends as Baron Gingins (Switzerland), Charles Prudommeaux (France) and the Sr. Leliman (Netherlands) they continued their valuable work, turning to improving your Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, and the diffusion of the breed throughout Europe and even in United States and Canada. It was the 8 in June of 1951, on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Eduar Korthals What, the “Wirehaired Griffon French Club” decided to associate the name of Korthals the race, to perpetuate the memory of its creator, and in honor of all their achievements and life dedicated to the task of breeding. Hence the name "Korthals Griffon”.

    The first specimen recorded in the American Kennel Club Origin Book was a Korthals Griffon called "Zolette", in the year 1887. However, the Griffon was still - relatively- unknown, It was recorded as "Russian Setter" (Griffon)”, by its supposed Russian heritage. It was not until 1916, Twenty-nine years later, the breed was officially recognized in United States.

    In the same year, sixteen copies of Korthals Griffon participated in the “Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show”, one of United States most prestigious dog shows. Since then, the race was growing in popularity, not only as a dog of exposure and company, but also a versatile hunting dog (that was the original intention of Korthals when he created the breed). For the most part, the race retains its original features: medium-sized, layer hard, good degree of training capacity and resistant in the field and in the ring.

    Pinscher Miniatura

    The Miniature Pinscher has much temperament, vitality and is an excellent companion dog.

    Content

    History

    It is often thought that the Pinscher miniatura is a German Pinscher small, but it predates that race at least in 200 years. Originally paid for his maintenance as a buzzard in the German pens. It is believed to have been created by the crossing of races as diverse as the Dachshund, the old german pinscher, the Manchester Terrier and the Italian Greyhound. The result was a spirited and fearless puppy.

    It was very popular in Germany and in the Scandinavian countries, but it is not surprising that its international star began to grow. The Pinscher miniatura was first registered with the American Kennel Club in 1925 like Terrier for his mouse experience. The Miniature Pinscher Club of America was formed in 1929, and the dogs were reclassified as a toy breed in 1930. In America they were called Pinscher (Toy) until 1972, when they were renamed Miniature Pinscher.

    Today, the Miniature Pinscher ranks 40th among AKC registered breeds, below 17th in 2000. As with many races, has changed position at the whim of the public, possibly because he's not the cute little lap dog that some thought he would be, or simply because other races have caught the public's attention.

    Physical characteristics

    The Pinscher miniature is the achicada image of the German Pinscher, flawless dwarfism. Its elegant square construction is clearly visible through her short hair, smooth and tight.

    Its proportions are square because it has the same length as the cross height, between the 25 and 30 cm..

    Its weight varies between the 4 and 6 kg maximum, at risk of suffering from the heart.

    The hair is short and smooth, admitting only copies monocolores Red in their different shades and copies bicoloured Black with fire marks.

    Character and skills

    A small dog with a great attitude and a bigger mouth, the Miniature Pinscher he has no idea he's not as big as a Doberman. Will face any threat, including a dog many times bigger than him. Will try to protect his family, will chase cats out of the yard and sound the alarm whenever he deems necessary, which is constant. And although it will fit in your puppy bag, you won't like being there. This is a dog with a mind and a will of its own, not an accessory.

    Don't let its designation as a toy dog ​​fool you. Like his older Terrier cousins, the Pinscher miniatura dig, will bark and chase anything that moves, including squirrels, cats and quite possibly other dogs.

    Due to his tendency to be protective and territorial, the assertive, proud and stubborn Pinscher miniatura needs a firm and consistent training from the puppy stage to control his bites, as well as any tendency you have to bark inappropriately. Don't let him get away with bad behavior or he'll quickly become an almost impossible habit to break. In addition, like many small dogs, Miniature Pinschers are difficult to train at home; firmness and consistency are the keys to success.

    The Miniature Pinscher is innately curious and likes toys that move or make noises. However, it is likely that at some point you will try to eat the toys… will gut a squeaky toy in no time. Flimsy rubber or plastic aren't the best bets for him.

    Miniature Pinscher Health

    All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems, and all people have the potential to inherit a particular disease. Run, do not walk, any breeder that does not offer a health guarantee in puppies, to tell you that the breed is 100 percent healthy and has no known problems, or to tell you that your puppies are isolated from the main part of the home for health reasons. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about the health problems of race and the incidence with which occur in their lines.

    The Miniature Pinscher is prone to some health problems. Here is a brief summary of some of the conditions you should know.

    Like most small dogs, Miniature Pinscher's knees can be unstable and can come out of position easily, the common condition known as dislocated kneecaps. This is one of the reasons why it is essential to keep your Miniature Pinscher at a proper weight..

    Hip disease known as Legg-Calve-Perthes disease occurs in Min Pins. Causes a reduction in the blood supply to the head of the hind leg bone, which then begins to degrade. The first sign of Legg-Calve-Perthes, the limp, usually appears when the puppy has 4 - 6 months of age. In many cases, treatment requires surgery to remove the head from the leg bone.

    Mucopolysaccharidosis VI, the MPSVI, it is a genetic defect in the way the body processes certain molecules. An accumulation of dermatan sulfate (a complex molecule) can occur in specific areas of the body. Stunted growth, joint damage, cloudiness of the eyes (which may look like waterfalls) and damage to the heart valves are some of the consequences of MPSVI. DNA test can identify affected dogs, Carriers and Normal - Breeding two carriers can produce affected puppies.

    Other conditions that affect race include diabetes, dislocation of the elbow, congenital deafness and eye problems such as progressive retinal atrophy, glaucoma and hypoplasia of the optic nerve.

    Not all of these conditions are detectable on a growing puppy, and it can be difficult to predict whether an animal will be free from these diseases, so you should find a trusted breeder who is committed to raising the healthiest animals possible. Must be able to produce independent certification that the dog's parents (and grandparents, etc.) have been screened for genetic defects and considered healthy for breeding. As a minimum, the breeder must have hip and knee evaluations of both breeding dogs.

    If the breeder tells you that you don't need to do those tests because you have never had a problem with your lines, your dogs have been vet checked, or any of the other excuses bad breeders have to skimp on their dogs' genetic testing, vaiyase.

    Careful breeders examine their breeding dogs for genetic diseases and breed only the healthiest and best looking copies, but sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas and a puppy develops one of these diseases despite good breeding practices. Advances in veterinary medicine mean that in most cases dogs can still live a good life. If you are going to have a puppy, ask the breeder about the ages of the dogs in their lines and what they died from.

    Not all visits from Pinscher miniatura to the vet they are due to a genetic problem. Due to its size and athletics, broken legs are not uncommon.

    Remember that after bringing a new puppy home, It has the power to protect one of the most common health problems: the obesity. Keep a Pinscher miniatura with a suitable weight it is one of the easiest ways to prolong life. Make the most of diet and exercise to help ensure a healthier dog for life.
