“This black male was born in Holland by artificial insemination with semen sent by air from Sweden. He had an excellent masculine head and an almost perfect body. He had a good temperament. He was a Dutch, German and International Champion. In 1975 he was best male at the Bundessieger but because he had not passed the Schutzhund Test and the title went to Ero vom Franckenhorst. He was also the DV-Sieger in 1977. He did pass the Schutzhund test in 1976. His value as a sire is well known. He sired some very important dogs such as Candy van't Smeulveen and Hertog Alpha Le Dobry.”
