TOPIC: SHE HAS ARRIVED AT LAST, MY DEAR HOUND

SHE HAS ARRIVED AT LAST, MY DEAR HOUND 8 years 10 months ago #7731

It has taken months before Giselle my Deerhound could arrive at my home
in South Africa. She was supposed to come in november last year from the
Weirskint kennel in Australia, but then my handbag was stolen with all my
bank and credit cards in it. Problem. I could'nt pay for Giselle or for her trip.
The breeder was very good about it. When a month ago I had all my official
documents and bankcards back from the Netherlands I started surfing the net
for Deerhounds on the net one evening. And to my surprise girl Three as she
was temporarly named was still for sale. A bit bigger now.
So I immediatly mailed to ask what
it would now cost for her to be shipped to South Africa. It was a bit too expensive
but I had a feeling that she already belonged to me and I so badly wanted a Deerhound
again. My Boer Greyhound is sweet and shy but no, she's not a deerhound.
And at last on the 24 th Febr. Giselle arrived by plane. I was dead nervous if
she had kept well on the flights. And when I at last was allowed to take her
out of her enormous crate she jumped up to me and overloaded me with very
wet kisses. Yes, I am thrilled, I am happy. I have a Deerhound again.

Congratulations on your new baby. I looked at her several times on Soile's website (couldn't convince the folks that we needed another one ;) ), she is so cute, and I really like her breeding.
You will have to keep us updated with lots of pictures and stories of her progress.

Re: SHE HAS ARRIVED AT LAST, MY DEAR HOUND 7 years 3 months ago #29000

There are no Deerhound breeders in South Africa. There are however a few Deerhounds but all without breeding capabilities.
The female and the two males I know of have been neutered. The only possibility for me to be able to breed would be by
artificial insemination. But that is all quite expensive and the question is if Giselle has puppies that I will have enough buyers for them. Deerhounds often has big litters. I don't see myself with around six Deerhounds + all the other dogs I have.
You could have a look at a Boer Wind hond. I also have one. All the breeders are in and around Joburg. If you look in the
Afrikaans magazine "Landbou" you will find ads for the puppies. If you are interested I can give you more info about the breeders. It''s not a Deerhound but it is a hound with a sweet character, they are also very good guarddogs and hunters.

Well good luck and I will hear from you.

Hi Joyce,thank you so much or replying! So sorry that there are no breeders in SA,I really love the breed. Was it very costly to import your Deerhound? I do not know a Boer Windhond at all but will make inquiries,do they also have the scruffy haired look of the Deerhounds? What other dogs do you have and do they all get on well together? Kind regards,Elle

Joyce

I was surfing the internet in search of a Deerhound in SA, and came across your posts on importing Giselle from Australia. I am very interested in purchasing a Deerhound and wanted to know if you consider breeding with Gisellle , Ill be very interested in buying a pup?

If not, is there any other suggestions, maybe a local(South African) breeders you now know of ?

Thnks so much
Kind Regards
Daniel
