Hertog Alpha Le Dobry
sire of this litter was the famous stud dog Hertog Alpha
Le Dobry. He was the sire of many outstanding specimen and
of numerous Champions and sieger Dogs. He was a significant
force for the breed in all parts over Europe and without any
doubt he raised the mean level of the breed. So he certainly
earned his place in the hall of fame. His hereditary powers
were clear. He was strongly carrying the bloodlines of great
producers like Don Dayan v. Franckenhorst and Bryan v. Forell.
Besides, just like in Dea Dolores v. Franckenhorst pedigree,
we also find the same triangle with Odin v. Forell - Bryan von
Forell and Chico v. Forell in Hertog Alpha's pedigree besides
supplied with some Forstenfeld blood out of the line of his
dam Tanja v.d. Kunnemabourgh. Although he won the Dutch Winner
title in 1981 Hertog Alpha never won any important show title.
But on the workingfield he got his best results. His temperament
and he was a dog with very high fighting and protecting spirit
combined with courage and hardness. He passed easily his Schutzhund
III exam and won many working trails. In 1985 he passed the
"Korung" with Class I A for life. It was this male
which I choose to became the sire of my "Q" litter.The
reason was not only because of his more than excellent offspring
but above all I was convinced that his bloodlines would strengthen
the lines of Dea Dolores v. Franckenhorst. It would give me
pups which I could use for my ultimate goal: refreshing the
old "v. Neerlands Stam" lines by doubling up that
triangle that brought so much success to the breed in the past.
Now afterwards I can say it worked!.
