“This red bitch was the foundation of the Dutch 'van Diaspora' Kennel. Iris was a nice bitch with a lot of nobility and she had a beautiful head with a powerful neck. She had a short and compact body. Some judges criticized her straight shoulders although she stood correctly on her feet and was strong boned. A correct hind angulation and a good colouring. Her character was outstanding. She passed her Schutzhund I only with the score 70-70-84. Although not very high, she later passed the very tough Körung with excellent marks' for courage and fighting spirit. In conformation she also did well and became a German and an International Champion. She was an excellent brood bitch and was mated by A.l. by Guys Hilo vom Norden Stamm, then in Norway. She produced one pup: the outstanding Caecilius Cassander van Diaspora, later a Bundessieger and an excellent sire too.”
