Athene von Nymphenburg was a very elegant black bitch, bred in Germany and owned by Mr D. Müller (Kennel vom Eschenhof). Athene produced excellent progeny, like Orpheus, Quarta, Queen, Quende, Questo and Queto vom Eschenhof. In 1977 she became Bundessiegerin and the German judge Mr Theis wrote: “a very big bitch with a nice topline. Very deep chest. A good wide chest. Good head and neck. Tan good. Eyes brown. Stands correctly on her feet. Correct movement. Complete dentition”. She did very well at shows and became an International and a German Champion. She also won the DV-Sieger title in 1977. She had a very even character and passed her Schutzhund II with figures 85-94-91.”
