Verein Deutsch-Drahthaar (VDD) registered breeders since 1984
Deutsch-Drahthaar pups from vom Altmoor please their hunting buddies from Greece and Spain to Nova Scotia, northern Quebec, Mexico, Argentina, Alaska, and across the continental United States. Our dual goal is to increase hunter awareness and appreciation of the Deutsch-Drahthaar while always vigorously supporting and pursuing the continuous efforts of Verein Deutsch-Drahthaar (VDD) to further refine and perfect it.
The Deutsch-Drahthaar is a medium to large dog of noble bearing. Sizes range from 57cm (22.8") and 50 pounds for a small bitch to 68cm (27.2") and 85 pounds for a large male. The coat should be serviceable and easy to care for, with a length of 3/4 to 1 1/2 inches. Most Deutsch-Drahthaars have a distinctive beard and eyebrows. They come in 3 colors: liver roan, black roan, or solid liver.
The Drahthaar is the epitome of the versatile hunting dog: a faithful companion with the nose and drive to put game in the bag, on land or in water. We expect our dogs to handle everything from preserve hunts to grouse woods, fresh-water puddle ducks to tidal jump shoots, pointing woodcock to retrieving greater Snows and giant Canadas on the Delaware Bay and other big water. Sound like the perfect hunting dogs? Well, for us they are. Maybe they will be for you, too.
