is clear that the influence of Graaf Quirinus v. Neerlands
Stam is the continuation of the significance male line of
Lump v. Hagenstolz - Bordo v. Forstenfeld - Vello v. Forstenfeld
- Bryan v. Forell - Don Dayan v. Franckenhorst - Hertog Alpha
Le Dobry. He can stand proudly amongst those truly great
Dobermanns recorded in the history of the Dobermann breed.
His brother Graaf Quinto van Neerlands Stam, which
I kept with me for one and a half years was in his youth extremely
successful. He won all the important youth titles at the European
shows. In 1988 he became the youth Bundessieger by defeating
his litter brother Graaf Quirinus. That year he was sold to
Japan but not before he was used as stud in the "van
Neerlands Stam" kennel. That litter brought me the World
Champion Gravin Wanda v. Neerlands Stam. After a dispute
between the Dutch and the German authorities concerning his
HD-score I brought Graaf Quinto after two years back to Europe.
In record time he became a Dutch and a German VDH Champion.
After one year he returned to Japan to continue his stud activities
but the dispute about his HD-score affected his use as a stud
in Europe as well in Japan. Unfortunately he died too soon
in 1994 due to cancer.Meanwhile, Graaf Quirinus van Neerlands
Stam had also his success in the show. In 1988 he became the
vice-youth Bundessieger. But his judge report was better than
the Winner's in his class - his litter brother. Maybe that
was already a sign of the great things which would come.
