“This black bitch was bred in Germany by well-known Mr Wilking, the former chairman of the German Dobermann club. He sold this bitch to Mr J. Bambach, owner of the kennel ‘von Eichenhain’. Hella was a short powerfully built bitch of medium size. She had a correct front, short back and very good forechest. The tailset could have been better. She had a typical head with dark eyes and tan and dentition. She was an excellent mover. According to Mr O. Vogel, Hella had a high level of self-confidence with strong nerves and in retrospect she did a lot to improve the temperament of the Dobermann in Europe. She was an important bitch in the breed and the dam of many excellent progeny.”
