/ Alida v. Flandrischen Löwen / Prinz / Progeny

Following are some of the better known Prinz progeny and descendants:

Due to his location there are naturally numerous winning Prinz offspring to be found in Italy, such as the AIAD Junior winner Era Della Sciara/1995 (Prinz x Miradi di Campovalano). Or her full sister Ether Della Sciara, who took out the brown Junior in the same show. Another Italian breeder who has had great success using Prinz is Gabrielle Prosperi, who used him three times, producing top progeny like Rayner di Campovalano/1996 (Prinz x Taiga di Campovalano), the AIAD Reserve Siegerin, and the 1998 Europasiegerin Orma di Campovalano/1994 (Prinz x Taiga di Campovalano), and her champion litter mate Oro Nero di Campovalano. Another full sister, Oro di Campovalano, was also Reserve AIAD Siegerin in 1997 as well as other top titles coming her way since.

Then there is the 1998 DV Sieger Ardens Idol Cacao/1996 (Prinz x Ardens Huma Haron).  A short coupled, masculine male with some restrictions in the angulation. He also won the CAC (for brown dogs) at the 1999 Bundessieger show. Also Italian-bred is the Italian champion Allevemento di Coldicania (Prinz x Shira di Coldicania) bred by Giovanni Capocasa.

By far the two most profiled Prinz progeny are bred by the Italian Dobermann Club president, Pierluigi Pezzano. These are the champion and multi-Sieger Alfa Adelante del Citone and his full sister, the champion and multi-Siegerin Arielle d‘ Amour del Citone/1994 (Prinz x Tequila Mali del Citone).  Alfa was 1997 AIAD Sieger, Bundessieger, DV Sieger, IDC Sieger and Europasieger and Arielle was 1996 AIAD Siegerin, World Siegerin, DV Siegerin and Bundessiegerin. With his outstanding phenotype, genotype and character, Alfa is clearly a sire of signifigence in the making. Bred in the purple, he most reflects his grandsire, Ebo v.d. Groote Maat/1982 (Egor v. Eland x Baroness Eva v. Rensloo) in type and quality - hardly surprizing being line-bred to Ebo on both sides of his pedigree.

The list of successful Alfa offspring is legion. Spread not only throughout Europe but the rest of the world. I shall mention only a few of them here. Amongst the more prominent ones are the 1997 AIAD Siegerin Maya di Latiano/1996 (Alfa x Dana di Latiano) and the 1997 IDC Junior Siegerin and 1998 DV Siegerin Melvas di Coldicania/1996 (Alfa x Qualema di Coldicania) and 1998 Bundesjgsiegerin Sun Black Story del Coinor/1997 (Alfa x Uriel del Citone.) Most recently both the black and brown CACs at the 1999 AIAD Sieger show were awarded to Quaress d’Islamorada (Alfa x Zoe v. Franckenhorst) and Marlene dell’Isolano (Alfa x Hantea dell’Isolano). Also two sibling winners in Italy are Iris and Indiro Campagna Nenis/1996 (Alfa x Marika Campagna Nenis), and another promising Alfa ofspring in Italy is Roy Hubert di Latiano/1996 (Alfa x Fabeldi di Latino.) There is the 1999 Baltic CAC winner was S’Lichobor Favilla Flay (Alfa x S’Lichobor Svazdochka) and champions like Tahi-Reme Guni (Alfa x Tahi-Reme Nursa) or the DSR Sieger and multi-Sieger show class winner S’Lihobor Fantom (Alfa x S’Lihobor Zvazdochka) also to his credit. In Germany is Bugatti v. Karat/1998 (Alfa x Lambada v. Brandenburg) and many other quality offspring too numerous to mention.

One Alfa litter to watch closely is coming out the IDC Siegerin Come As You Are Alabama/1997 (Baron Nike Renewal x Galaxy Gwendy).  Being a Prinz granddaughter makes her D litter Come As You Are, sired by Alfa, a line-breeding on Prinz.  Puppies have gone literally all over the world and it’ll be interesting to watch which ones turn out the best and the influence they have in their new homelands. In Belgium is Come As You Are Dion (owned by Peter Beunekens of the Roveline Kennel), in the USA is Dalli, Dakota is in Spain, Dea Dia and Dogzilla in Finland, Demian in Greece, Delfi Duna in Hungary and Detonator in South Africa (owned by Hymie Leibman’s Hysand Dobermanns.)

Alfa’s sister, Arielle, has also left her mark in the best possible way that a bitch can, by producing a top black son that captured the imagination of breeders. This young star is the 1998 Junior Bundessieger Gino Gomez del Citone/1997 (Astor del Citone x Arielle d’Amour del Citone), a product of an incest mating between the brown Arielle and her black full brother Astor.  Making Gino Gomez an inbreeding on Prinz on the male line and on the Siegerin Tequila Mali del Citone/1991 (Lucifer v. Roveline x Haina del Citone) on the female line.  Gino’s sire, Astor del Citone/1994 (Prinz x Tequila Mali del Citone) also produced the Bundesjg.Siegerin d’Amore and Ombra di Temaline/1996 (Astor x Gravin Uline v. Neerlands Stam.)

How well Gino Gomez will produce over the long term remains to be seen. Although still young he has been quite a popular sire,  already siring a number of junior class winners in Europe. Such as those from the V litter of Nostalgi Vargi/1999 (Gino Gomez x Nostalgi Lubava), the G liter of Gelo Robis/1999 (Gino Gomez x Gelo Robis Amideja) and Bombastic v. Hanseaten (Gino Gomez x Chendra Novalis), who between them cleaned up the Puppy classes at the 1999 Moscow Specialty Show. In the UK is Drusus v. Adlercrest/1999 (Gino Gomez x Athene v. Karat), imported by the specialist judge, David Stafford. Other American–bred siblings to Drusus were exported to Brandenburg kennel in Germany and Hymie Liebman in South Africa.

The same litter that produced Gino Gomez, also produced an excellent female to match Arielle‘s own superior qualities. This is the 1998 Junior IDC Siegerin and DV Siegerin Gemielle d’Amour del Citone. Again, it‘s still early days for these dogs yet.

Sweden also has also been influenced by Prinz, the best know being the champion and 1992, 1993 and 1994 Scandanavian IDC Siegerin (and BOB) Sascha v. Norden Stamm/1990 (Prinz x Nicole v. Norden Stamm). She also became Korad, which means Angekört in Swedish.  Sascha is another line breeding on the K litter vom Norden Stamm and has produced a number of Angekört (Korad) and show winning children. Amongst these are Julietteville’s Wonder-Viking/1993 (Bryanstamm’s Pablo-Picasso x Sascha v. Norden Stamm), a BIR Junior at the Dobermann Specialty. His sister Julietteville’s Xdrilljé, also Angekört. Other Swedish Specialty winning dogs from Sascha, all bred by Folke Lötborn, are Julietteville’s Yniara, Ybristo and Ysmir/1995 (Xiko van Het Wantij x Sascha v. Norden Stamm.) 

In Finland was Sascha‘s full brother, Storm v. Norden Stamm. Highly praised for his excellent character he was regularly used as the test dog for helper seminars in Finland.  He qualified for his Finnish Champion title before being exported to Dennis and Chris Gallacher’s Seigen Dobermanns in Australia, where his excellent character and working abilities were especially appreciated and put to good use.

In Yugoslavia you can find a number of successful Prinz progeny and their descendants. The most signifigent would be the multi-champion, Europa Vice-Junior Sieger and 1998 IDC Sieger, Baron Nike Renewal/1995 (Prinz x Borana Karmen Sawages). Nike‘s blue ribbon pedigree also has the neccessary depth to assure he would be a great producer. Quickly born out by the early appearance of his delicous looking daughter, the 1998 IDC Siegerin Alabama Come As You Are/1997 (Baron Nike Renewal x Galaxy Gwendy), mentioned above.

Nike’s high conformation standard and firm character meant he has a lot to offer. But once again political complications rears its ugly head. He has also been unable to access a German ZTP, thus missing out on many top West European bitches that otherwise would have come his way.

Nike was not a one-off in his litter. A number of siblings were not only successful show dogs, but also produced winning progeny in several lands. Champion siblings like Barbika Barbie Renewal and Bagio Bobi Renewal and Croatian Club Sieger Bangor Boran Renewal. Or his full sister, Baroness Zova Renewal, the mother of the top placing Escobar Casa di Oz/1998 (by Irinus de Ferignis), a Vice Junior IDC Sieger, Junior Sieger and Landessieger, presently standing at Irinland kennel in Moscow. Wellenberg Julfil Silvester (Nike x Wellenberg Julphil) is another family member flying found the family flag high in the East.

Prinz and his two brown sons, Nike and Alfa, have proven popular sires in Russia and the old East Block countries. These once isolated outposts of Doberland are now offering the West thriving competition. Born out by the large numbers of high quality Dobermanns to be found in these lands today, which are oft surpassing the best the West currently has on offer. The Russians in particular have been on a post Cold war shopping spree that they’ve managed to capitalize on splendidly. It is a great pity that the tyranny of distance and incompatible regulations prevents more exchanges of the many superior dogs found in these lands today.

In Moscow is another Prinz daughter with a blue-ribbon pedigree, the German bred Indira v.d. Räuberhöhle/1996 (Prinz x Nemesis Figi v. Koepsel). Like others in her litter Indira is a good bodied, if somewhat masculine bitch. Her grandmothers are Kastra and Kalina v. Norden Stamm, which makes Indira another line breding on the K litter v. Norden Stamm. She has produced a number of champion, Sieger and BOB winning sons and daughters, like for example Tigr Slavnoi Stai and Trefovaya Dama iz Slavnoi Stai/1998 (by Ugor di Villa Conte) and Tsaritsa iz Slavnoi Stai/1999 (by Baron Nike Renewal.)

In Croatia is Indira’s full brother, Ivenhoe v.d. Räuberhöhle, a multi-junior Sieger, BOB, Slovenian Junior Champion and Croatian Junior Champion. Another successful Prinz granddaugher from the same kennel is Marusha v.d. Räuberhöhle/1998 (Alfa Adelante del Citone x Nemesis Figi v. Koepsel). Also line-bred on the K litter v. Norden Stamm and like her famous female forebears, she also became Junior Bundessiegerin in 1999. Proving the old German saying, the apple never falls far from the tree.

In Germany is the black champion and multi-Siegerin, Chendra Novalis/1993 (Prinz x Mia v. Norden Stamm), Sch.H. 3.  Chendra was IDC Siegerin, Europasiegerin and Bundessiegerin before going in the whelping box and being bred to her close relations Hertog di Fergnis/1992 (Eick v.d. Rappenau x Alina v’t gröne Land) and the Junior Bundessieger Gino Gomes del Citone. Both were males that closely supported her own blood. Amparo v. Hanseaten/1997 (by Hertog) and Bombastic v. Hanseaten/1998 (by Gino) are some of the more promising offspring. There should be a caution made about the continuing use of strong inbreeding as it can reach saturation point, resulting in fine bones and other unwanted traits appearing, especially probable when the individuals involved are not physically and mentally superior in all respects.

In the USA is Cocochanel v. Tiffeny/1997 (Prinz X Nobless v. Brandenburg), a bitch with firm character and excellent drives. She has been recently mated her her close relative Pelangristamm’s Armin/1996 (Graf v. Norden Stamm x Falina v. Norden Stamm) and poised to begin a new career as a Schutzhund competition bitch.

Although I have hesitated for a long time to write an article on a dog of our own breeding I had to acknowledge that Prinz has been a pivotable sire in many breeding programmes around the world in the Ninties and for that reason alone his heritage requires to be more closely examined.
