Welcome to Zwinger von Oxsalis website , We hope that you enjoy your visit.
Let us introuduce ourselves , We are Mr. & Mrs. Hufnagel , We both grew up with the German Shepherd dog and have been involved with this wonderful breed most our life. We have taught each other about this breed. With much hard work and dedication we have prouduced top quality German Shepherds for show and schutzhund with a well balanced temperment and exceptional structure. After our marriage in 1965 we started a family and it occupied much of our time. When the family grew up , it opened up time for us to start to think about our own German Shepherd again. We started out with a well known breeder Werner Maxein , Kennel vom Hasenborn, who was a friend from our youth days. He helped us out a lot by selling us a puppy out of his youth siegerin Boa von der Wienerau and the well known male Jupp von der Haller Farm. We had much sucess with our Hatja vom Hasenborn. Hatja earned SG 11 in the German Sieger Show. Our next dog was Quine von Kahler Heide. Quine earned a top placing as well. She was SG 13 in theGerman Sieger Show and also earned a VA Title in Austria. In 1980 Heide's father transfered the kennel name to Mr. Hufnagel , this helped us very much and we feel proud to have this heritage in the name. In late 1980 we came upon the puppy Hexe von der Romerau , from our friendHeinz Reininger , Kennel von der Romerau. Hexe was a daughter of Ulk vonBasilik and Quana von Arminius. As a decendant of the Q - Litter von Arminius , that really influenced the quality breeding of the German Shepherd. Hexe had big proudicing potential ,She is the mother of the well known O and P - Litter von Oxsalis , H -Litter von der Wienerau and N - Litter von der Romerau. All these litters were born and raised in our kennel. We had a lot of joy with her son Orasy von Oxsalis who was SG 13 in the German Sieger Show and of course with our Hanno von der Wienerau. Hannolived with us until he died in 2002. Hanno helped our breeding program out a lot with his beautiful sons and daughters. We do not want to forget to Thank all our friends and helpers. We want to thank our daughter Sandra for handling our dogs in the shows until her marriage and our daughter Claudia for taking care of all the dogs and puppies when we were at the shows on the weekends. Finally , we do not want to forget our friend Eddy Hendricx from Belgium ,for taking all the nice pictures of our dogs. Unfortunately Eddy can notjoin every show because of health reasons. He is still taking part in the show business. Since Autumn 2003 I am in retirement of work and I now have the time to train and enjoy my young dogs for myself. The next generation of German Shepherd owners in our family is growing up.Our grandaughter Julia loves to join the shows with us and helps us with the double handling. Hope that you have enjoyed reading our history.
