PICTORIAL HISTORY

Allerhochst Shape Consolidated

The advent of our first "C" litter and the progeny produced by those dogs gave us the first taste of what we wanted in our Rottweilers. Strong level toplines without dips and roaches, substantially more angulation, particularly in the rear, greater width of thigh for better muscle carriage, more moderate size for improved workability, all traits that we still value very much today.

While this litter was growing up our next move was, we thought, underway.

Ch Castor of Intisari, a Danish dog in the UK, was much admired and sought after, and the Pettengells had acquired a German bitch, Catja vd Flugschneise, and bred her to Castor in the UK. The Pettengells kindly agreed to bring a bitch puppy to Australia for us among the puppies that they were bringing in for themselves with Catja. In due course we had Auslese Imogen Rabe in our home with great expectations for the future.

There was already a Castor son in Australia, Adoram Matheson owned by the Mummerys. Although we did not consider Matheson to be a dog of good quality, we had noted with interest that he had produced many offspring that we were very impressed with. With this in mind we acquired a Matheson daughter from Rotvel kennels who we proceded to show successfully to her title. She was Ch Rotvel Galatea.

So as the seventies closed we had set our next course.

 

Imogen subsequently had a litter to our Ch Auslese Niersteiner. This litter was such a disaster that Imogen was never bred again.

However Galatea produced a litter to Ch Allerhochst Carl and from that litter we kept Allerhochst Nada. The "N" litter was just what we had hoped to produce from Carl & Galatea and Nada went on to make her contribution to Allerhochst with the "Q" and "T" litters.

In 1981 we, quite by accident, came across a dog that was for sale by the name of Vanglen Artmen. On investigation we established that this dog was a grandson of Matheson, and his other breeding was also well known to us. He was a very typey dog and very much in keeping with our ideas. We acquired him and then set about finding his parents and siblings. This we eventually did, and we were most impressed with what we discovered. So impressed were we with his brothers that we told his breeders that we would buy the lot if they were for sale.

 

Within 12 months one of his brothers was indeed available. After some swift juggling of dogs, we acquired "Prince" who we had no problems in showing to his title, and so began the contribution to Allerhochst of Ch Vanglen Aspen. Prince was to prove to be the consummate gentleman of Rottweilers, indeed having Prince in our home was almost like having Bacchus reincarnated so similar were their characters.

Allerhochst Quinta

Prince and Galatea were quite similarly bred, however we were by this time quite familiar and comfortable with our particular lines and were not strangers to calculating the risks of close line breeding. Consequently we mated Allerhochst Nada with Prince and produced our "Q" litter. From this litter we kept Allerhochst Quinta who subsequently went on to produce many quality puppies for us. Two of Quinta’s sons, Allerhochst Wizard (sire Ch Willemstadt Aidan CD) and Allerhochst Artus (sire Powderhorns Graf of Wencrest) were the sires of our favourite Rottweilers Ch Brojelie Diesel and Allerhochst Elliot, who both provided us with many great years of love and devotion. Artus was also the sire of Ch Allerhochst Elke and Ch Allerhochst Elle.

 

The final say in this chapter of our history belongs to Ch Willemstadt Aidan CD. We were always impressed with Aidan, a dog with great vitality and strength. He had a strong working background and introduced new bloodline through his sire Powderhorns Fetz of Wencrest. We bred Aidan to Quinta to produce our "W" litter. At this time we were enjoying the activity of Schutzhund, and 2 of this litter were trained. Allerhochst Wyatt Sch HI and Allerhochst Wanita Sch HI, FH. So impressed were we with this litter that we did something that we rarely consider, we repeated the mating. Unfortunately only one of our "Y" litter survived parvo.
