Obtaining a Munsterlander

If you are interested in obtaining a Large Munsterlander you need to contact a breeder in your country unless you are willing to spend a lot of money importing the dog to your country. There are rules which are associated with importing dogs and depending on where you live, and what country the dog comes from, these rules can include quarantine periods, vaccinations and tests. 

Most people prefer to look closer to home. Since the majority of enquiries I get are from the United States I would suggest that you visit the Large Munsterlander Club of North America web site as it lists all breeders, where they live and when they are having puppies. Be warned though they rarely sell to "pet" homes as they have such a large demand for working dogs.

Should you live outside of the United States my links page also has web sites world wide which may help you with your search. My kennel is situated in Australia. 

Most people prefer to obtain a puppy, although sometimes an older dog may suit your needs better. Some countries have "Rescue Services" to rehouse older dogs. The UK has a good rescue service, in Australia it is often better to contact the breeders.

Older dogs usually come about from a change in circumstances of the owner (people moving or family issues) or sometimes Show dogs do not turn out quite how the breeder planned  so they are looking for new homes.

The only thing to be aware of with older dogs is although you get to miss the "puppy stage", older dogs can be set in their ways and take longer to settle in.

Either way should you have decided on getting a puppy or taking on an older dog I wish you all the best with your search.

If you need any advise please send me an e-mail.

Please note the pictures I have used are mostly ones that I own, or have taken at shows. Other photos I have been given permission to use (if they were not my photo's) either by having the photo sent to me or copying it from the persons website. There are some photo's of dogs I particularly like that I have also included, if you own these dogs in question and do not wish them to be included please let me know & I will remove the picture immediately. Also if I have included a picture of your dog I have taken at a show and you want it updated with a picture you prefer please send it to me and I will change over the photo.  If I have listed your dogs name in the Roll of Honor and you wish to add a photo e-mail me a jpeg picture or e-mail me for my postal address.   

Should you wish to use any pictures included on these pages (unless you own the dog) please contact me before copying them.  The little "Munster on point"  was created by and is owned by Tracie Edwards. 

All details included in the breed history has been gained from reading many articles, and collating the most common reports. Should you feel you have a more accurate recount of the breeds history please contact me so I can rectify any errors.
