Uno vom Schinkelberg
We have spent years following this stud in Germany, studying how he produced and how his offspring performed. In our opinion, we believe UNO is one of the most significant stud dog of current time. He produced the Hegewald winner in 2011 and have continued to produce impressive dogs throughout Germany, Austria, Turkey, Bulgaria, Russia, Ukraine, the UK, and now the United States of America! Not only is he a proven producer, he is also a high performance dog with solid test scores, perfect health clearance and a 12/11 rating for conformation and coat. Aside from being the perfect specimen and proven producer, his pedigree is what makes him the full package. He is a true linebreeding of the old German strain out of vom Schinkelberg Kennel. Uno is a prodigy of a half brother to half sister breeding, with the famous Matze vom Schinkelberg on both side as his grandfather. This kind of linebreeding is usually not approve by the VDD system. However, in Uno's case, his litter was an exception because the German system saw this lineage as a clean, healthy bloodline that will represent the Deutsch-Drahthaar breed well. Uno was awarded a 12 in conformation and was the only VDD dog in the stud book that year with a perfect 12 in conformation and near perfect 11 for coat. This dog is truly a magnificent specimen and a great asset to Verein Deutsch Drahthaar Group North America (VDD-GNA). Because of all the exceptional traits Uno will contribute to GNA, vom Moua-Forst have made the full commitment to invest in him and import Uno into the USA. Uno is now residing in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA!
Samuel III vom Kervinshof
Sam is our famiy dog and personal hunting partner. He is one tough son of a gun. This dog will retrieve down ducks and geese, switch over to pointing birds and later track and retrieve fur. He is the full package and his drive might be too much for most people to handle. At home he is gentle with my children but very protective of my property. He and Anja are the only two dogs that have full access to the perimeter of my property throughout the night to keep any potential intruders at bay. Sam moves flawlessly in the field and like an otter in the water. He is a medium-size 70lb male with a perfect built. Sam has many excellent features in the Drahthaar that we love including his good looks, exceptional hunting abilities, but also unique lineage in his pedigree. He is the last certified drahthaar in the USA with his motherline, Mirka vom Venusberg Sachsenhof-Saarforst-DK.
