Länder, Kromi


The Kromfohrländer comes in 2 coat variations: wirehaired (Rauhaar) and smooth haired (Glatthaar). The distinction is the presence of a beard on the wirehaired variety and a rather long coat on the smooth haired variety. Therefore the wirehaired resembles a terrier, while the smooth haired looks rather like a spaniel. The color is brown/tan/buff markings on a white background with a blaze on the face 'as symmetrical as possible.'

The Kromfohrländer is a very lively, good-natured, intelligent breed with a comparatively weak hunting instinct, loves to play and run and can adapt to many situations fairly well. Kromfohrländers are very much "people dogs" and they rarely stray very far from their owner. They take to strangers and children rather hesitantly at first, but once they get familiar, they are friends for life.

Grooming Requirements


The coat tends to shed dirt easily, and the dogs don’t typically have an odor unless they’ve rolled in something that smells bad. Bathe them as needed. Depending on whether a Kromi spends a lot of time outdoors, as well as on your furniture, that can mean weekly, monthly or quarterly.
