The seed for Autumn Wings Kennel was planted in 2009 when my wife and I purchased our first Small Munsterlander. We hoped for nothing more than a functional hunting dog, but Pine Hollow’s Brigette Breeze was far more than that. We didn’t recognize that we’d been blessed with a once in a lifetime dog until our NAVHDA and SMCNA friends noticed her abilities. When not hunting everything from woodcock to geese to squirrels, Breeze found time to become a Versatile Champion (VC). With VC Max vom Schutzenknapp she produced a litter that qualified for the second ever NAVDHA Utility Breeder’s Award given to a Small Munsterlander. That litter produced Bold Breeze Artemis (Artee). Artee has followed in her parents’ pawprints, successfully hunting everything we ask and earning her own Versatile Champion title in her free time. VC Bold Breeze Artemis and Range Rover Van Loenerhoef will continue this exceptional line with a second litter expected spring 2021.
Brian Werner, owner of Autumn Wings Kennel, is a fanatical hunter. VC Bold Breeze Artemis is his canine alter-ego, having the same intense desire to hunt everything with a season. They have harvested well over 500 grouse, woodcock, pheasant, quail, ducks, and geese. Plus a few rabbits and racoons. And they’re just getting started…..
