Kromfohrlander is a "new" German breed, it is a cross between two
breeds and it comes in two coat types - but doesn't look at all like a
The parent breeds are wire-haired Fox terrier and some kind of hunting
Griffon (Bretagne Griffon?), and it got its full breed status
sometimes after WWII - in 50's, I guess. The name comes from area
named Krom Fohr (or Krumme Furche?). Kromfohrlanders look like big,
light Fox Terriers and they are white with tan, sable or yellow
spotting. One coat type is wire and rather short, the other is longer
and softer-looking. They are used as hunting dogs and they are said
to make rather nice (but active!) pets.
I have no idea what a "Boomer from TV" is.
Official kennel clubs don't accept new breeds easily here in FCI
countries, especially if the breed is just a cross of two existing
breeds and doesn't come from old local type ("landrace"). But
numerous local types still don't have a full breed status, and many of
them are not too mixed to be "saved". Some are already gone, like the
Suursaari Seal Dog, a spitz-type dog specially for seal hunting
(probably the only such breed/type in the world?) although some people
here in Finland are right now trying to re-create its close relative,
