To get to
know the Dobermann of today, we need to study its history.
In this history, the kennel of Sonja David von Franquemont
Freudenberg played a significant role: it gave the breed
a great number of excellent specimens, without whom
the breed wouldn't have developed to the current level.
The von Franckenhorst kennel was founded by an Indonesian
woman, Sonja David von Franquemont Freudenberg. Her
first Dobermann didn't meet her requirements, therefore
she was regularly attending the great European shows
and got acquainted with an acknowledged German breeder,
owner of the v. Eichenhain kennel, and bought a male
from him: Ero v. Eichenhain, son of Andy v. Eichenhain
and Wilma v. Fürstenfeld.
The next purchase was a female, Amarilda v. Wachenburg,
puppy of Ero. In 1971, the first litter, a combination
of Amarilda and Chico v. Forell, came into the world.
