    Jagdterrier - German Hunt Terrier
    Primary Lens Luxation (PLL)

    This is relatively a new issue within the breed that has been brought to our attention by a Mr. Shane Bullard, Oklahoma.

    I have received numerous emails and phone calls from fellow hunters and dog owners informing me that they know of or have heard of a puppy from Krol and Ohra who tested high risk for the PLL disease insinuating that the dog I used to own "Delaney's Krol" is possibility a PLL carrier. There seems to be so much interest in this PLL issue, I have decided to write a bit of an article that might help clear up a few things.

    PLL was something that was never heard of within the jagdterrier or German hunt terrier breed, we all know that other hunt breeds such as the Drahthaar have been tested by hunters for quite some time now, but as I say it was never an issue until it was brought to our attention,

    When I imported my Jagdterrier bitch "Ohra" from Bulgaria, PLL was not something that ever crossed the minds of Jagdterrier owners, breeders and hunters, PLL was never an issue, the only issue among fellow hunters was, the Jagdterrier, are they hard and game enough, do they conform to FCI or UKC breed standard etc, but nothing about PLL.

    I had a litter of 4 pups from Krol and Ohra and sold one to Shane Bullard, Oklahoma, Shane came down to my place in person to pick a pup, when he came there was only the one pup available which I believe he named him "Scout" he was the smallest pup in the litter but no question a game one.

    It was about a 8 months to a year and I received and email from Shane asking me did I know if Ohra or Krol was tested for PLL which to my knowledge non of them were tested and went on to let me know that his dog Scout tested for PLL and was informed he is homozygous A/A-at risk carrier. This came some what as a supprize to me because to be honest PLL was something I had never dealt with before in any of my dogs, so it prompted me to read more into Primary Lens Luxation.

    My Imported bitch "Ohra" died and because of health and job related issues, I decided to all part with all my Jagdterriers, Krol was sold to (Buffalo River Bucks Outfitters, Mississippi) and later changed hands to (Aaron Shinkle) who to my knowledge still has Krol.

    There has been allot of talk about PLL dogs and carriers of PLL, as I say, I personally never had any of my dogs tested for PLL but if Shane's dog Scout tested homozygous A/A-at risk carrier, then it had to come from somewhere within the line, being that both Ohra and Krol are related, it's really had to say where it came from, Ohra's not with us anymore, it would be up to Aaron to have Krol tested and see what turns up there.

    In Krol's defense whether he is tested or not, Scout tested homozygous A/A-at risk carrier, as long as Krol is mated to a female that tests a/a the risk of PLL carrier would be about 7% which is nothing, on the other hand if he's mated to a bitch a/A then of course your going to run a greater risk but in a nutshell, as long as Krol is always mated to a PLL negative female the risk is only 7%.

    Since the PLL has been brought to our attention, I don't know how true is is but I've heard of 2 imported dogs that have produced a number of litters and that has been tested PLL positive.

    So maybe this is something that we all need to look into and ask about when buying a pup or bringing in a new imported dog.

    Thank you!
