Congratulations! His father was super-hunter. Foxes, racoon dogs, badger, deers... Also super blood tracking dog. Never had better working dachshund as he was! Have good time with your new dachshund! ~ Pauliina Sjoholm, Finland, breeder/owner of Marz' father
Imported from Denmark on October 7 by Diane Webb and John Willmore of California, Mars will live and track with Jim White of Louisiana. Mars is the father of Taya, Tasha, and Thor, all littermates bred in Denmark by Lise-Lotte Schulz and living in the U.S.
It didn't take Mars and Jimbo long to track this deer. The deer was still alive in tall, tall grass. Mars has landed! ~ Cliff Shrader, Louisiana
Jim and his family are doing a great job with Mars. Thank you, Jimbo!
So this six year old dog was bred by someone in Finland (Ilse Kokkonen - kennel Maxi-Tax)
lived six years with someone in Denmark (Lise-Lotte Schulz - kennel Tranevang)
was purchased and transported to Copenhagen airport on October 7 by someone from California (John Willmore and Diane Webb)
was picked up at O'Hare by someone from Ohio (me)
transferred in Illinois to someone from Louisiana (Cliff Shrader who was on a hunting trip)
stayed three days in the hunting camp with Cliff and his buddies
then eight days in Louisiana with Cliff and Cheryl
and went on Sunday to live with the alligator hunter guy in the picture (Jimbo White).
This is Mars - Cajun Jim says it's Marz! - on his way to a deer track this evening. I don't know whether it is a training track or a real one but I look forward to hearing how it goes!
Marz is Multi-CH Maxi-Tax Maroon Marstax, father of my Taya, Cliff's Tasha, and Derek Smith's Thor (Seymour).
All the Best to Cajun Marz!
Lise-Lotte Schulz has written that she is planning to repeat the mating that produced her Terra, my Taya, Cliff's Tasha, and Derek's Thor. You can see more about the Tranevang T litter by clicking on their names under Categories in the sidebar.
If you desire a dachshund with excellent temperament, tracking ability, size, coat, and game voice you will want to consider a puppy from this litter.
Lise-Lotte's email address is at the end of this post.
And certainly you are welcome to contact me for more information about the T litter and my experiences with importing dogs from Scandinavia.
I am expecting to mate Longhair standards in January or February.
[Taya is Tranevang's MA Tayatax, bred by Lise-Lotte Schulz, Denmark.]
Happy Six Months Birthday to Taya, to her sister and brother Tasha and Thor who are also living Stateside, and to their three littermates overseas!
