Over the years my eyes often catched the deerhounds. There is something so noble and beautiful with them. The are divine creatures. After learning to know more them their temperament was also more and more appealing.
Outi have had borzois and her heart also was beating for deerhounds and finally we decided to have deerhound ourselves. After searching more and more about this breed we decided to get our first one from Germany. Legendary von der Oehlmuhle kennel and it owners Mr Jurgen Rössner and Jurgen Papenfuss have bred some stunnig deerhounds and irish wolfhounds over the years.
After speaking with them I decided we hope to get something from them. After a while these old respected breeders were willing to let us have their very best. We got a unique possibility to import young female that we really really loved namely Dita von der Oehlmuhle. We were specially concerned about the deerhound fronts, coats and backs. We wanted specially long and well developed pelvis and sound back with our deerhound. This young female had everything we were looking for with these details. We were so honored and happy to have female like this to start with. Dita pedigree is also very clever and we really do like many great hounds in her back round.
We never can thank enough these German legendary breeders about having a change to import Dita. She was also charismatic personality from the very beginning and she does not know a stranger yet she is noble and true queen on the house with great sense of humor. Dita has large fan group around her.
Dita got her first CC from her very first show as a junior and it has been smooth sailing after that show. She gained CC after another from her shows with many BOB and group placements. She has been great show dog and she gained her cacibs easily around Scandinavia finishing her Int Ch title with Group 2:nd at Lahti International Dog Show. We love this classical deerhound and we looking forward to see our future years with these amazing hounds.
Dita had her first litter with stunning UK import male Multi Ch Kilbourne Harvest Moon. This litter was linebred to famous deerhound GB Ch Kilbourne Celtic at Hammonds. We got nice size litter and we have some outstanding deerhounds from this breeding. We kept several hounds from this breeding under our own wings.
I visited famous von der Oehlmuhle kennel August 2010. I saw in this wonderful houndparadise deerhound female to die for. This female was powerful and so correct all over. She is Flower Power von der Oehlmuhle. Her front is unique and it is not often you can see such a correct structure. Her back is powerful and she moves like a dream. After seeing her I was dreaming about having this deerhound queen to Finland.
A year later dream came true. I never can thank enough Jurgen Rossner for trusting this stunning hound to us. We are so honoured and proud. In her first official show Flower won BOB, BEST in GROUP and BEST in SHOW over 500 other dogs. Flower will be our other foundation bitch and we have interesting plans with her.
