History

The Krom originates from Germany in the 1940s. The first Kroms were the result of an accidental mating of two mutts (or possibly a Fox Terrier and a Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen). The resulting puppies were taken in by an Ilse Schleifenbaum, who thought that the puppies were very attractive and decided to try breeding them. They were first recognized for showing in 1955. The name is pronounced (krohm-for-land-ur).
