“This black male was bred in Germany out of two wonderful Dobermanns. He was exported to Mr R. Zorzi living in Verona, Italy. Orpheus was a male with a good head with a nice presentation. His topline was strong with an excellent tailset. He had a superb character and easily passed Schutzhund III. Although he was often placed among the best four in his class he never won an important Sieger title. His blood lines made his hereditary valuable with suitable bitches and it was a shame for the Italian breed that this dog died at the age of four. It is worth to know that Orpheus and three litter mates died as a result of a torsion of the stomach.”

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