“This Dutch bred black male was of medium size with a good head and good markings. He had strong well muscled quarters and moved very positively. He stood well in the ring and had good tight feet.
He won the Bundessieger title in 1978 and became German and International Champion. He did not do very well at the Dutch shows. He had a normal character and passed his Schutzhund 1 (76-79-82).
This dog was sold to Thailand and was not used much for breeding in Holland and Germany. This was a pity because he had many good qualities and came from good bloodline.”
