Today, on February 3, 2012, "Anna" (Diestel von Moosbach-Zuzelek) whelped a litter of 10 puppies: 4 females and 6 males. This is absolutely amazing as it is her first litter, and she was born on October 15, 2005 so she is over 6 years old. Also the mating was done through AI. It proves again that fertility runs through a female bloodline as Anna is a daughter of Elli, who has always had large litters. Elli's dam Agata also had eight pups per litter.

The pups are sired by Fred (Fidget von der Bismarck-Eiche) who was imported from Germany and lives in Neosho, MO. He was bred Stefan, Vanessa Fuß and Nadja Frazier, and his pedigree is here. I saw Fred in 2007 when I went to visit his owner Cameron Kruse, and I really liked the dog.
|Fred (Fidget von der Bismarck-Eiche) is a nice dog - alert and driven in the field, low key and relaxed at home.|
We also liked Anna a lot when we had a chance to see her at Trackfest in Quincy, IL in 2006. Her pedigree is identical to Billy's, and you can see it here.
