Cheyenne is the type of dog that gives me a surge of excitement every single time I take her out of the box. She has an explosive, objective based field search. Her movement if very flowing and fluid; that combined with her intense desire to produce game, dead or alive, makes her a kennel favorite. The dog is very cooperative; despite her ground eating field search, she prefers hunting "with" the handler. Her tracking and nose work excels; she recovered her first arrowed whitetailed deer in the dark of the night at just 5 and 1/2 months old that was otherwise left for lost by the archer! Despite the power she delivers to my hunting team, she is very easy to live with as she is quiet in the crate, kennel, and inside our house and hunting lodge. Mentally she is tough; one example of this was portrayed on a late season bird hunt in North Dakota in 2020. In the very far side of a section of fallow field, she engaged in a porcupine which resulted in a face full of quills. At the time, my extraction tools were not available in the field which meant a one mile journey back to the truck where field trauma medicine could be practiced. During that one mile back to the truck, Cheyenne located two mature rooster pheasants, pointed, and held them for the gun; the dog refuses to quit under any circumstances!

Pelle is a male who was imported from Germany as a finished stud dog. He is a very well rounded and balanced hunting dog who has great mental stability and toughness. He possesses great confidence and mental stability in social settings and is very very athletic. I am excited to have the opportunity to use him as this pairing as it introduces genetics to the kennel which previously were very difficult to acquire here in North America. I am excited to gain influence from many members of Pelle's ahnentafel; some of the most notable include Alwin II vom Bandorfer-Forst (a very powerful field dog with great endurance), the Brundelfeld dogs who are known for toughness and industry, and Ralf and Tango del Zeffiro (coming from a kennel known for high intensity hunting dogs). Pelle has sired several litters here in North America which will be testing in 2024. In particular, he was paired with Balta von Makoshika (Annie's half blood sister) to create the C litter vom Chequamegon; those pups are showing great talent, trainability, form/hair, and health at a young age. I am expecting much of the same from the pups von Makoshika.
