Sorry to say- your cute, scruffy rescue dog is not a Kromfohrlander, no matter what. Here's why!
Original Peter, the foundation sire of the Kromfohrlander, was a mix of many hardy breeds that could survive on its own in the harsh environment of a World War.
The breed was carefully developed over 10 years at a time when there were very few dogs remaining in households due to the perils and poverty of World War 2.
There are always many dogs that can be considered Kromforhlander lookalikes in rescue and at animal shelters. Many wirehaired terrier mixes often have a similar appearance to the Kromfohrlander.
There is ZERO chance of your rescued dog being a Kromfohrlander, unless it is microchipped AND registered with a foreign registry with a 3 generation purebred pedigree of 100% Kromfohrlanders.
There are very few actual Kromforhlanders outside of Europe. NONE of them have been in second hand homes or in shelters or being allowed to breed indiscriminately.
We do not foresee the need for rescue.
This breed is peculiar and quite simply, does not do well at accepting new owners.
Congratulations on your cute lookalike!
Enjoy him or her just the way they are and send us a photo- we'll put him/her up on this page to show what these good looking impawsters can look like.
