“This big black male became German and International Champion as well as winning the Bundessieger title in 1972. The German judge Mr Hensel wrote in 1972 at Essen: “a big powerful male. His head planes could be more parallel but he has a very good neck and topline. A deep chest and forechest, very good hind angulation, colour and tan are good, a very nice expression, good dentition and good movement”.
He had a good character and easily passed Schutzhund1. He was then exported to Japan to improve the breed. Overall he was a very good dog and did good for the breed.”
