Beretta x Toby
It is with great pleasure that we can finally present the combination for Kennel Mirozzie’s second litter, planned for spring / summer 2022. This time we have found a very promising male from the Netherlands named STARDUST IN YOUR EYES DREAM FOREST for our Beretta. The combination has been reviewed and approved by the breeding council of the Swedish Stabijhounklubben and the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Stabij- en Wetterhounen and satisfies all guidelines for breeding, as well as NKK’s ethical guidelines for breeding. The combination gives an inbreeding rate of 0.20% calculated over 5 generations in Zooeasy (which corresponds to 6 generations in NKK’s Dogweb) and 31.91% calculated over all generations (which is below the breed average of 33%). The male dog is X-rayed free of HD, has a good breed-typical exterior, a lot of hunting instinct and a very good temperament.
Toby, as he is called on a daily basis, is described by his owners as follows:
Toby is a very sweet and relaxed boy. We are very proud of him. His first litter contained 12 pups. Toby is not trained for hunting. He loves to search and follow scents though! We heard this week that his second breeding was successful. Toby is getting settled with the fact there is another dog in his home! We are now also the proud owners of Cooper. He is a son of Toby.
His prey drive is good. He likes to hunt birds down, but he will stop when that bird stays put. He gets enthusiastic when he picks up a scent and follows the scent in a quick pace. He likes to carry things (like his dummy) but not too many times. He is very friendly towards strangers, except when they show up on our front door. He will bark loudly for a short time, until the stranger is inside the house. Then he becomes their best friend. Loud noises don’t bother him. He is not afraid of fireworks. He is too sweet. He has to put the pup on its place, but that’s very difficult for him. I asked my husband, but we can’t name a thing about him that’s not to love.
Toby comes from a breeder who has done very well on hunting trials in the Netherlands with her dogs. Toby’s mother, Isolde, has excelled particularly well on this front. About Isolde says the breeder says the following:
Isolde is a beautiful, intelligent and above all confident bitch from the combination Elbrich van het Winaldhuhiem X Dries Borke Fan’e Alde Leane. Show qualifications and HD results are better than required. She has HD A with a Norbergvalue of 33,0 with no bone abnormalities and something really quit rare within the breed: no insufficient connection! Isolde has a nice character she is naturally very stable and confident with a huge passion to hunt. She has a immense desire to work and will do absolutely everything for her owner. She is really a dog with a massive » will to please». All this qualities together make her an exceptional good working dog and a absolute pleasure to work with.
In 2017 Isolde wrote history again but this time for an even remarkable echievement by being the first Stabijhoun to obtain a KNJV A- Diploma in 12 years! She became champion because she was the only dog who managed to find the pigeon and was the only dog to obtain an A diploma. For this extraordinary achievement she recieved the first prize for the highest A. In addition to the KNJV trials she has been and still is many times out in the field on different kind of hunts with all sorts of wild game. During this hunts she demonstrated to have lots of passion and a firm dedication to her work. Her offspring shows to have and has already proven to have a stable character and to have the proper work-will and skills to achieve more in the future.
Although Toby himself is not actively used for hunting, he comes from exciting lines and has all the right qualities we are looking for: Good health, a good exterior, a lot of hunting instinct, good temperament and good mentality. In this combination, we expect puppies with a good mentality and very good conditions for both hunting, working, dog sports and family life. We will exclusively prioritize puppy buyers who are actively engaged in hunting / working, competitions and / or trials for this litter. It is important for us that the puppies get the opportunity to use their potential as we want to see how the traits are inherited. This is important both for preserving the characteristics of the breed, as well as for further breeding in our kennel. We will also consider feed host for a bitch from this litter, preferably living in Trøndelag.
Beretta and Toby had several successful matings between April 24-26. We got pregnancy confirmed by ultrasound on May 25. Puppies were born June 26, one male and five females. All puppies have been reserved.
