“A black bitch, bred in Germany but imported by the Dutch Dobermann judge and breeder Mr Mencke in to Holland. Centa was a nicely built bitch with excellent front and hind angulation. She had a lovely neck and shoulder placement. Her head was good. She had a nice topline with correct tailset. She did well at shows although she was not a top winning Dobermann. In character she was very nice. She was the foundation bitch of the Kennel ‘van‘t Smeulveen'. Centa whelped some important progeny among them Candy van't Smeulveen.”

[By J.M. v.d. Zwan: In the beginning.....A history of the Dobermann]
