His desires were fulfilled thanks to a chance. Lutz Heck/Hagenbeck Zoo director gave Walter Zangenberg four dogs suspected descendants, reddish black Terrier of pure breeds of Fox Terrier. These dogs began raising the Terrier German Hunter.

The club of the “Deutscher Jagdterrier e V…” was founded in 1926.
