Kromfohrlanders in the United States of America
Mr. Felix answers a few questions about USA Kromfohrlanders
How many Kromfohrlanders are in the USA?
142 documented Kromfohrlanders
are recorded with AKC's Foundation Stock System and are the ONLY ones that will be officially recorded in breed history with AKC, thus far.
6 unrecorded Kromis have come to North America and though we have done extensive tracking down of each and every one of these historic Kromis and contacted their owners, sadly, they have thus failed to provide information
that would make their dogs part of officially recorded Kromi history
in America. If you owned one of these dogs, please contact us.
Approximately 30% of these documented USA Kromis have lived their lives and are now deceased.
What needs to be done to be recognized by American Kennel Club (AKC)?
The Kromi is currently in the Foundation Stock class with AKC. The next step is Miscellaneous Class.
Eligibility to request Miscellaneous Class Status requires:

How long will it take for AKC recognition?
It is unknown at this time how long it will take until the Kromfohrlander is recognized. The gene pool is shallow and limited. It takes some breeds 10, 20 or more years to get AKC full recognition!

Is my lookalike dog a Kromfohrlander?
EVERY Kromfohrlander is known in North America and none have been bred irresponsibly or ended up at shelters. Piebald is a common coat pattern that protects vital organs with a 'solar panel' action. Rough coat is expressed commonly in mixed breeds for survival purposes. You have a lucky mix, just like the Kromi's foundation sire, Peter!
How much do Kromfohrlanders cost?
The price of a puppy typically reflects the difficulty to obtain the breed, the difficulty in breeding them, demand, health screenings, the cost of rearing and educational development and finally, the purpose of the puppy ("just" as a pet or pet and show).
Currently Kromfohrlanders are around $2000+ US and worldwide.
How about staying in touch?
It is really important when a breed is just starting out (like we are) that puppy buyers try to at least stay in touch, if not get out there and do fun things with their dogs at shows or other sports (we can help you navigate all that if you need it!). It is also important for great quality dogs to remain intact at least for 2 years to see if they can help the breed out in that way. Joining and participating in the official breed group (which is on Facebook but you don't have to use all of Facebook to use this group) Kromfohrlander North America is the best way to get to know other people with the breed. That comes in handy during the inevitable growing pains.
The Kromi's American founders reflect decades of experience in breed rescue, exhibition, sports, breeding, health, training and behavior study in a wide variety of breeds and temperaments.
The breed was accepted into the American Kennel Club's Foundation Stock Service in 2012 when the first foundation Kromfohrlanders were imported to the USA.
