The origin of the Kromfohrländer 

The Kromfohrländer is a German dog breed that originated in the 1970s. The breed was created by Karl-Heinz Krompholz, who was looking for a small, intelligent dog suitable for hunting small prey animals. Krompholz crossed several breeds, including the German Standing Dog, the German Dachshund and the Basset Hound, to create the Kromfohrländer. 

The breed quickly became popular in Germany and surrounding countries because of its small size, long ears and incredibly loving and friendly nature. The Kromfohrländer is also an excellent guard dog because of its keen senses and alertness. Introduced to the Netherlands in the 1980s, the breed quickly became popular as a companion dog. The Kromfohrländer was also used in obedience and agility competitions, because of its intelligence and speed.
