In the first decades of the last century my father, Friedrich Möhrke, lays the foundation-stone of the Fox Terrier Kennel in our family.
|He breeds "real" Fox Terriers, who ignore the poultry, but kill the vermin.
|I am born in Stettin and raised in Pomerania. After being expelled from our home we live in Mecklenburg together with our Smooth and Wire-Fox Terrier. The first thing I did with them is hunt foxes.
The prefix is internationally protected for my father from the - Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI).
The name "Bismarckquelle" is from a place that was beautifully situated in a little Beechwood. In 1900 this place was named after Bismarck and was a well known place for school excursions for many years. The "Bismarckquelle" is next to the river Oder (today known as Polen) - unfortunately it is not in good shape, but we remember how it was, in all it's beauty.
|Since we refuse to breed dogs without appropriate facilities, we had to search for many years to find a suitable property with plenty of space for the dogs. This house we found in Dortmund-Kley.
|My father dies suddenly and unexpectedly before reaching retirement age that was supposed to give him more time for his dogs. I inherited his passion and go on breeding to build upon his work.
In the following years, I work on getting good stock, and manage to get to the Top after eleven years of hard work.
|The first homebred Smooth dog "Quax" in one year wins in Doppel, Derby, and Bundessieger.
After the marriage with Elke Becker from Berlin we work very successfully together.
A solid breeding programme with good stock and well planned breedings proves most successful. Our dogs win continuously and make the kennel well known throughout the world. There is almost no title, that has not been won yet!
Christine Schupfner moves into our house and is then very close with our dogs. She is still a very reliable support in our team.
Without her some things would not be possible!
|Our Smooth dog "Vasko v. d. Bismarckquelle" wins (apart from many other titles) the first World Champion title for our kennel. Many more have followed since.
|In Herning/Dänemark we win three World Champion titles and the Wire dog "Dark v. d. Bismarckquelle", wins "Best in Show" with an entry of almost 4.000 dogs.
|For the necessary expansion of our breeding facilities we buy a farm house in the "Münsterland". The "Eichenhof" in Dülmen is perfect in size and location and gives ideal opportunities for our "two and fourlegged" offspring.
|Manuela de la Rosa, married Weiß, joins us and learns everything about Fox Terriers. She trims, handles, becomes a hunter, breeder and judge for Fox Terrier.
|Juha Palossari (Starring), later Molly Nyman (Texforrier) from Finland and Ilaria Tornelli (Del Cardinale) from Italy increase temporarily our team, improve their German and their trimming and are now Top Breeders of Fox Terrier in their home countries.
|Daughter Carola wins the first German "Junior Handling" finals and flies to London to the international Junior-Handling final, that takes place at Crufts Dog Show in London.
|1989 bis 1993
With the first dog of her own - "Flash v. d. Bismarckquelle" - Carola goes to the U.S.A. and improves her trimming and handling by working with the Professional Handlers Wood Wornall and Peter Green.
She manages to make Flash an American Champion.
After this title, Flash becomes World Champion 1991 in Dortmund where he was also BOB and third in the Terrier group. In the following years he becomes the most successful dog of our kennel with the most international Champion titles.
As a Stud Dog he has a strong influence on our breeding, many of our Top Dogs today go back to Flash.
|Carola finishes studying at the Veterinary School in Hannover qualifying as a Vet and opens with her husband a private practice in Dortmund. From now on, they take care of the medical needs of our dogs.
|Daughter Corinna qualifies with her bitch "Vaedra v. d. Bismarckquelle" for the German Agility-National Team and starts at the World Championship in Maribor/Slowenia.
|After 50 years of work, almost thirty years for the German Fox Terrier Club, I am now retired and am able to devote all my time to my hobby - the Fox Terrier and to my first grandchild.
|Golden Honour Prize of the Polish Kennel Club for longtime outstanding success in breeding our loved fox terrier "von der Bismarckquelle".
|All of our three grandchildren agree with us in loviing our foxterrier!
