Svalegaarden Kleiner's Ronko - Call Name Ronko

Born July 7, 2017

Downloadable files


Ronko is an imported roan male who is a shining star in our breeding program – he is absolutely stunning with a dark roan and white coat and beautiful brown eyes that are very dark.  His conformation is excellent and his disposition is so very sweet and quiet, he’s very similar to Angus as a pup but dare I say it…. Cuter!!  Ronko and Trixie are half brother/sister, having the same sire but different dams, however they are very different.  Trixie is high energy and Ronko is very laid back and easy going – but they both love to carry around stuffed animals at all times (must be a Netherlands-thing!).  

Ronko was imported from Denmark, from breeder Rasmus Mikkelsen Thuesen, owner of Svalegaarden Kleiner’s Kennel and Ronko’s mother Bonny.  His sire is Pixer Jixer van de Chesannehof who has Dutch, Belgium, Swedish and International Champion titles.  His owners are Maurice Coenen and Peggy Dautzenberg.  It was a wonderful experience working with these lovely people and their beautiful dogs and Ronko and his brother Buster arrived safely in the US without any problems.  Ronko is already excelling in the field and water and is doing an excellent overall job!  He is a happy, eager to learn dog and we are looking forward to Ronko growing and becoming a valuable part of our family and breeding program.

    Mina is a beautiful roan girl we kept from our M-Litter between Pepper and Ronko.  She is extremely gentle and sweet like both of her parents but she has a stronger drive (which is saying a lot because both Pepper and Ronko are machines in the field!).  Mina was the runt of the M-Litter and was barely 2 oz when she was born and she had no fur, you could see the bones in her legs and she was so tiny I could hold her in the palm of my hand and she was just dwarfed - Pepper had 13 pups with the M-Litter and almost all the pups were good-sized except for Mina.  We took the pups to our vet at 3 days old to get their dew claws removed (we don't do that anymore but that's a different conversation) and our vet said he didn't think she would live, she was fully developed internally but just so tiny in a big litter he felt she wouldn't make it.  But that was enough to make John more determined that she would, so he fed her around the clock every 2 hours by taking Pepper out of the whelping box and feeding Mina separately so she could nurse until she fell asleep, and by 2 weeks old she was still small but able to fight for her own teat, and I mean she would just hang on and the other pups couldn't push her off!  So she may have gotten her "don't give up" attitude from her early start in life and having to work hard for everything when competing with her bigger littermates!   And we realized as she grew what an amazing personality she had and also beautiful conformation and structure for breeding, only in a smaller package as she stayed a petite little Munster as she grew.  

    Mina is super fast, she runs down squirrels that are unlucky enough to come into our yard and catches them by the back of the neck and kills them.  She's amazing in the field as evidenced by her Prize I on her NAVHDA NA test, she hunts close in and comes back to check in often and like all our dogs has an incredible nose.  But she's also a huge cuddler and loves to snuggle close at night when most of the other dogs will start off in bed with us but then leave to find their own comfortable spot, Mina will stay close to us.  And we call her our little nurse - she will go to each of our dogs at night and lick their eyes and ears like she's getting them ready for bed (this is a sign of high socialization found in animals such as wolves who live together in packs) and if one of the dogs is hurt she will lick their cuts and is very attentive to them!     

    Mina has grown into a beautiful female and we are proud to have her in our breeding program.  Her SMCA breeding evaluation is below:
    • Mina is a nice attractive roan female. Her height is correct but her height to length ratio is long at 1-1.15. She has average bone and muscle mass. Her head looks feminine with correct proportions, her eyes are medium brown, her ears set is low with a strong muzzle. She has a well muscled neck with good taper. Her front angulation is very good with legs set correctly under her body. Front lower legs looks a little short proportionate to her upper body. Front legs straight and parallel. Front feet straight and tight with nice thick pads. Excellent straight top line that slopes to a nice correct pelvis and tail set. She has very good rear angulation that is well balanced with the front. Rear lower legs a little short as well but again balanced with the front. VG width of thigh. Rear legs straight and parallel. Rear feet straight and tight with nice thick pads.  Healthy looking dense medium length coat that lays flat and tight to the body with very good furnishings.

VIolet Pepper EBEN-EZER (Call Name - "Pepper")

Born March 14, 2016

Pepper was imported from the Czech Republic - after owning Utski for a year we knew we wanted another puppy from these incredible genetics so we again partnered with Czech breeder Katerina Lisova and brought 4 puppies to the US at 10 weeks old, keeping Pepper.

Like her half-brother, Pepper is simply exceptional.  Her personality is very gentle, so submissive that she rolls over on her back when she greets us.  She is a happy girl who loves to play and we often find her in the puppy area playing and sleeping with the pups.  Pepper loves to play and wrestle with the pups and is very gentle and loving to the little ones.  Pepper is one of the first dogs we introduce puppies to when we begin socialization because we know she is so gentle.

But also like her half-brother Utski (same mother, different sires), Pepper is just exceptional in the field, eager to please and trains easily, only having to show her what you want once or twice.  She received a perfect 112 score, Prize I on her NA test at 14 months and also won first place at the SMCNA 2017 Bird Derby (puppy division) at 15 months.  Pepper continues to surprise and delight us with her sweet nature in the home and ferocious tenacity in the field and will be a shining star in our breeding program.

BRUSHEDALE'S ALL GUNS BLAZING - "Angus"

Angus is gentle, loving and very laid back. In the field, he becomes an intense hunter, nose to the ground with a beautiful point, tail straight up and feathered. He is a quick learner, eager to please and passed his NAVHDA Natural Abilty Test when he was 12 months old with a Prize I. Angus is certified by the SMCNA as an approved breeding dog and his distinguished pedigree and fierce hunting abilities make him a sought-after SMCNA-approved stud dog.

GUNWOOD’S GYPSY ANNALISE V HEMI - "Ani"

Ani was the “perfect dog” and was sometimes used during conformation training because of her perfect proportions and Small Munsterlander features. She was extremely intelligent and understood almost immediately what was expected of her. She was a relentless tracker and retriever in the field. Ani rarely tracked with her nose to the ground, rather she lifted her nose and smelled the air, and would then run towards the prey. Ani scored a 112, Prize I on her NAVHDA Natural Abilty Test when she was only 10 months old.

HUNTING HILL’S UMA ABIGALE - "Abi"

Abi is Miss Personality Plus. She is high energy and relentless in the field - she can go all day and never wants to stop. At home, Abi is a sweet and loving dog who likes to snuggle in bed, play fetch and is eager to please, catching on quickly to new commands and expectations. she scored a Prize I on her NAVHDA Natural Ability test the first time. Abi loves the water and she is as good a hunter/tracker/retriever as Angus who is a few years older. Abi is approved by the SMCNA for breeding and has produced 4 litters to date. She is truly a beautiful, exceptional dog.

MUSTAIN'S ASIA VON ANNALISE - "Asia"

Asia is from our A litter between Ani our “perfect dog” and Castiron’s Flying Jet and she is very much like her mother and reminds us of Ani everyday. She is a rough and tumble tomboy who is probably the goofball of the bunch. She is a true athlete and is always very anxious to learn tricks and perform, and also loves to do agility work. Asia easily scored a perfect 112, Prize I on her NAVHDA Natural Abilty Test and is an amazing companion and hunter.

ROBINGUN'S DAENERYS STORM VON ETTA - "Daeny"

Daeny is from Robingun's "D" litter and came to our home from Nebraska just before Christmas 2014. She has an extremely sweet, mellow personality but at the same time is so intelligent it is scary! Her mother Etta was imported from Germany and her father Aico's semen was imported from the Netherlands, and the combination has produced an incredible Small Munsterlander! At less than 3 months old Daeny has already tracked and held steady on point for birds, is completely potty trained, fetches to hand and loves to ride in her kennel in the truck. She is quiet, never whines or cries, sits when offered a treat, knows her name and comes running when called!

UROS EBEN-EZER - "Utski"

Utski was imported from the Czech Republic and is a shining example of not only a Munsterlander but any well-bred/trained gun dog. From a young age he excelled at everything, his natural abilities are so sharp that when hunting him at a tournament when he was just 9 months old, people thought he was much older as he out-performed many dogs who were older and more experienced. Utski is a very gentle, sweet male from a long line of champions and exceptional Munsterlanders.

Violet Pepper EBEN-EZER - "Pepper"

Pepper was imported from the Czech Republic and after owning Utski for a year, we knew we wanted another puppy from these incredible genetics. Like her half-brother, Pepper is simply exceptional. Her personality is very gentle, so submissive that she will crawl instead of jumping when she greets us. She is a happy girl who loves to play and we often find her in the puppy area playing and sleeping. eager to please and trains easily, only having to show her what you want once or twice. She won first place at the SMCNA 2017 Bird derby (puppy division) at 15 months and continues to surprise and delight.

FUGLEJAEGER TRIXER JIXER JUDY - "Trixie"

Trixie is a perfect name for this little girl, because she reminds us of a Pixie - tiny and very beautiful, quick, high energy and so very sweet! Trixie is our first import from Denmark and it was a wonderful experience. Trixie is still very young and is now just coming into her own with training. She loves to fetch and her drive is out of this world. She also loves the water and combined with her drive and energy John says if he threw a bull elephant into a lake she would find a way to fetch it back. She is tiny but is going to be a powerhouse!

SVALEGAARDEN'S KLEINER RONKO - "Rocky"

Rocky is our Danish import from Svalegaardsen's Kleiner Kennel, owner/breeder Rasmus Mikkelsen Thuesen. Rocky is an outstanding male with beautiful coloring and very dark brown eyes. He is so sweet and loving and very smart. He immediately got the other dogs to fall in love with him and all the girls love to play with him - he especially likes to lay on the floor and wrestle. Although still just a pup, he's learning quickly and loves to fetch and is already pointing birds - still working on retrieving! We are so very happy to have Rocky in our family!
