Irbis vd Donau-Wirbeln
One of the all-time top-producing sires in Germany.
He was purchased by the Stramanns to improve the conformation of the inbred Hege-Haus dogs, with heads (stronger underjaws) and hindquarters a particular priority. His purchase was more than justified, for the dog proved to be a superb producer, not only for Hege-Haus and Niestetal (the kennel-name Mr. Stramann had purchased in 1970), but for a range of breeders throughout Germany. His tally of Sieger-titles is only exceeded by that of Axel v.Wasserschling, and many of his offspring have themselves produced champions.
He was the hunting companion of Mr. Stramann
