This cross between an English terrier and a French hound remains a rare breed outside of Germany, where some 200-250 puppies are born every year.

About the Kromfohrländer

Kromfohrländers are family and companion dogs that are easy to train, adapting quickly to their circumstances but remaining a little aloof with strangers.

There are two separate varieties, distinguished by coat type: rough coat or smooth coat.
