We are delighted to introduce the Weimaraner Klub of Gauteng to the new litter of our kennel: Pheasant’s Fancy, Kennel Union of South Africa (KUSA) registered.
This litter has been part of a project we have undertaken with the kennel: Walhalla and Dr Claudia Wigger-Pieper & Matthew Berry of ‘Boavida Gundogs and Wingshooting’, to initiate new significant lines of genetics into the South African ‘chapter’ of the Weimaraner Breed.

The litter of Nine Puppies has been an extraordinary and very rewarding experience and has been most notable in terms the results achieved and we anticipate a resurgence of interest in the breed. It has been a long road and we are extremely pleased with the results.
The litter has been specifically established around the idea of testing and proving the capabilities of the Weimaraner in the field (not only in terms of hunting but also a variety of other attributes that Weimaraners should have in terms of tracking, agility scenting and endurance). We have had great interest shown from the hunting fraternity, conservation profession as well as those who have an interest in the showing of dogs.
The litter will officially be registered as the ‘C’ (or third) ‘hunting’ litter bred by ‘Pheasant’s Fancy’. Makeda is the real, first name of the Queen of Sheba in Amharic. It is a matter of great pride that we have been able to progress along the road to breed Weimaraners for the purpose for which the breed originated, here in the Southern part of this great, beautiful, ancient, and at times, harsh continent of ours’, Africa.
