Stella passes her first tracking exam


For the last activity of the year, Stella and John signed up for a tracking exam. We have been practicing with the little girl on and off for the past couple months and decided it was time to let her take a real test.

“An excellent tracking dachshund from start to finish.” What a super comment!

I’m happy to report that Stella passed with flying colors! The judge had only wonderful things to say about dog and her 1st time handler. As Stella seems to enjoy tracking, we hope to continue with her this spring and hopefully gain a few 1st prizes in open class.


Stella BIR & BIG-2 in Moheda

In her first show as a Junior, Stella (Team-Freja Shaula; co-owned with Carina Hofling) earned Excellent with Hederpris/Honorary Prize (HP), Best of Breed Junior, Best of Breed and Best in Group 2 at an unofficial exhibition in Moheda. We did not wait around for the BIS Junior ring due to the chilly weather and 5+ hr wait time. We still need some more ring training, but she is a promising young girl.

Miniature Wirehaired Puppies Expected week 21!

We received the happy news that Liina (MultiCH/Winner Barbwired Champagne) is expecting puppies! The ultrasound confirmed that she is pregnant and puppies are expected week 21.

The father of the upcoming litter is the very handsome Ch. HeJW-16 Choiran Arioso (eyes checked without remarks, patella 0/0).

Arioso stems from a kaninchen x miniature wire pairing and Liina from a miniature x standard pairing. Both parents are miniature wires and we hope that the puppies will also be miniatures.

The coefficient of inbreeding for 4 generations is 0% and the pedigree is full of nice dogs from kennels including Freckle-Face (Finland), Suddebok (Austria), de Buch de la Perouse (France), and ot Mariny Kuranovoy (Russia). It is a unique combination of bloodlines and we hope for good dogs for family, show, and working tests.

Additionally, Liina has several hunting aptitude tests including: Gun shot test (sfk), Hare trailing (Spurlaut), Fox test (BhFK/95), and Blood tracking Champion (Spårprov). Tests were conducted in Germany and Sweden. Arioso is currently training for blood tracking & PIKA (kaninchen schleppe) in Finland.

Puppies will be born in Helsinki, Finland and will be Kennel Barbwired’s “E” litter. Markku and Salla speak Finnish, English, Swedish and German. If interested in a puppy, contact details can be found here:

*We are looking for a potential co-owner in Sweden* 

Serious inquires will be considered. Candidate families should live within 4 hrs of Göteborg and be interested in having an active family member. If interested, please contact:


Liina has been paired!

We are happy to announce that Liina (CIB&CIE VDH Europasieger 2017 MultiCH SEVCh Barbwired Champagne (Sfk, Sp, BhFK/95)) has been mated.

The chosen male is a miniature with miniature/kaninchen pedigree, well merited on shows, patella 0/0,eye checked without remarks and training for working trials.

More details will come once the pregnancy has been confirmed.



C.I.B & C.I.E. confirmed!

We received some nice mail while away on winter holidays. Liina’s International Beauty (C.I.B) and International Show (C.I.E) Championships were confirmed! Liina freshly groomed 2016

Congrats little girl!

Liina is currently with her breeder in Finland. If all goes well, there will be miniature puppies this spring. If interested, please contact me!



Merry Christmas

A very Merry Christmas from us here in Göteborg! 25626440_10105798624032853_3688842887177378043_o

2017 was a year of change and 2018 will likely be no different.

We had great success in the show ring with Liina earning 3x BOB/BOS with CACIB out of 5 shows this year and additionally completing her CIB, CIE and was VDH-Europasieger 2017. Baxter became a first time daddy to 7 beautiful puppies this August in Blekinge, Sweden. Two boys are still looking for the perfect homes, so if you might be interested, please Contact me!  They are developing nicely and are super friendly and social boys.


After Christmas, I will travel with Liina to Finland where she will spend time with her breeders at Kennel Barbwired. If all goes well, we expect puppies out of her in Spring 2018. Again, feel free to contact me or kennel Barbwired if interested.


So, with those brief updates, Have a happy and healthy holiday season and great start to the New Year!!
