  • Bundessieger in 1966.

“This black male was bred in Germany and gained the Bundessieger title at a CACIB show in Stuttgart in 1966 under a German Judge Mr Rothfuss. He described the dog as follows: “this male is an outstanding specimen with no serious faults, he is balanced and powerful but could have a stronger head'.
However according to other experts Andy had a very, very bad head. They said he had a bitchy head with a weak underjaw. Mr. O. Vogel even said it was a mistake to make the dog a Bundessieger, because he would be used too much for breeding.
Even today it is possible to see the influence of this bad head. The famous Dutch breeder Mr Klöppel (Von Grammont) said many years ago, that if you use a male wit a bad head it will take 10 generations to eradicate the fault. Andy did not have a bad temperament and passed his Schutzhund I. He was never entered in the ZTP (Fit for breeding test) in Germany.”
