German Shepherds – What do you really know about the controversial “Canto vd Wienerau”?

Although the Canto vd Wienerau died young and produced relatively few litters, it is still considered one of the three most important dogs that made up the modern German Shepherd.

Kantu was born on 17 September 1968 and was founded by Hein vom Königsbruch of Galle against Fohlenbrunnen, daughter of Liane von der Wienerau.

It is interesting to examine his lineage as this may provide evidence of his quite exceptional strength. Although only a limited number of offspring were produced during his short time at stud, a large proportion of them achieved the high Korklasse 1 rating. Six of these animals were VA in Germany. He also fathered two American champions.

The Kantu terrier, Hein v. Konigsbruch, born March 10, 1965, was a very interesting dog for a number of reasons. More important is why Walter Martin decides to use it as a lookout for Kanto’s dam, an excellent prostitute, Liane von der Wienerau, an exceptionally well-bred V-bitch.

Although Hein Koer’s report was satisfactory, he certainly didn’t have a very illustrious modeling career in Germany. In 1968 he was placed relatively low at SG 7 in the male open class under the tutelage of Dr. Funk. In 1969 he did no better under Dr. Rommel, receiving only a G for his lack of working ability.

The Koer report describes it as a large, elongated animal with harmonious lines, good angle, a perfect back line, and a ground-covering gait. He also referred to his temperament as sound. His fighting spirit “kampftrieb” however, was described as “vorhanden” – present rather than evident.

Plus, he hadn’t produced many litters before Walter Martin decided to use him.

Why, then, did Walter Martin decide to use it instead of the more popular and proven animals that have already proven their mettle in the show ring as well as their strength?

I feel the answer to this is that Walter Martin was a visionary with the remarkable eye of a dog. Hein represented a departure from most square dogs of the time, with limited back angle. Hein was an overachiever on corners compared to many of the leading dogs of the time. He was a very charming dog and Martin knew the qualities he had to offer.

Furthermore, he was aware of Hein’s parentage. His sire ‘Fix zu den Sieben Faulen’ was a very fine dog as were the sire ‘Fix’ and ‘Asslan vom Maiweg’. I remember seeing ‘Asslan’ in Germany and being impressed by his lovely clean lines and – what was unusual at the time – his very good band. In addition to the ‘Asslan’ sire, ‘Alf vom Walddorf – Emst’ was a very good dog.

Walter Martin was clearly aware of Alf’s qualities and taking what some people might consider a gamble, he believed that in Hein, he would be able to perpetuate the wonderful qualities that Alf possessed.

I remember seeing Alf, who was about ten years old at the time, at his owner Walter Logue’s house and being very moved by this wonderful animal. Not only was he a very handsome dog, even at the age of ten, he also had an exquisite temperament, bold yet friendly.

Alf’s breeding reflected the successful combination of Rolf v. Osnabrueckerland and Axel V. de Denninghauserheide. His father was Rolf, and Dame, Elga vom Velosahhaus, was Axel’s daughter.

Walter Martin must have considered that with the dog Leanne raised he would not have to worry about temperamental problems. Lianne was the daughter of an exceptionally good dog, Galk v. Fuehlenbruny, who also had a background of very good temper. Liane’s Dam, “Dixie vd Wienerau” was the daughter of the VA’s dog “Arno vom Haus Schwingel”

Moreover, Liane was one exceptionally good trash. Her litter sister Landa became against Wenrau Siegerin, and the litter brother “Lido” was also a top model, and a very domineering father with a very strong temper.

Hein has been exported to Tadellos Kennels of Mrs. Egger in Britain at the age of five where he was reasonably successful in the show ring, winning two CC prizes. He also begot some good stocks in England.

The best assessment of Hein v.’s temperament. Konigsbruch was made by my good friend Percy Elliott in his book The Complete German Shepherd. This is what Percy Elliott writes: “The Hein had little ability to work and that is why he was reduced to a good standard for the 1969 Sieger Show. He was not shy, just a normal dog friendly enough and pleasing if not asked for too much…”

I can agree with this assessment. Many years ago I imported a little son of Hen from Mrs. Egger. My dog ​​was a very lovable, friendly, gentle dog but somewhat lacking in a protective instinct; An ideal pet for the family.

The Kanto has been described as a dog of medium size (64 cm), medium strength with excellent pedigree. His front angle was really, really good and the rear contraction was flagged. Particularly noted was his long and well-set croup, a quality he passed on to many of his descendants. Negative traits included a head that lacked masculinity and also the lack of a strong pigment. There was also a definite trend towards looser hocks which was particularly noticeable when he was a young dog

As a young dog, he was placed No. 4 – SG 4 in the youth class at the Sieger Show in 1971, and was V.1 in the open dog class.

His temper was not as daring as one would like, and in this respect he took on his father in place of his mother. It should also be noted that Cantu is considered the first known hemophiliac in the breed. This was not discovered until later when he found that his daughters had begun having affected males.

Although he died at the age of four, he produced a large number of exceptionally good dogs.

Below are the very important sons of Kantō whose names appear in the pedigree of a large number of today’s great winners. Frei v. Holtkamper See, Canto Arminius and, to a lesser extent, Argus Klamme.

Frei V. Holtkamper See was set by Canto from Iris v. Sudfeld, a prostitute whose breeding reflects the valuable influence of Vello zu den Sieben Faulen. Frei was the most successful of the Kantō dynasty with 5 VA progeny, one of which, Zorro v. Haus Beck – VA in 1981 – produced Lasso v. Wiederbrucher Land.

Lasso v. produced. Wiederbrucherland in turn is the exceptionally successful sire, ‘Fedor v. Arminius’ who was a VA in 1987. The Fedor name is in the bloodlines of a large number of winning stock, in many cases through VA Fedor’s important son, Mark v. Arminius. Haus Beck.

Mark has proven to be one of the hottest sires in recent years and is the sire of, among others, Sieger Kimon Dan Alhedys Hoeve.

Kimon is the father of VA rated “Karly v. Arminius.” Karly also proved to be an exceptionally good sire and produced a VA ‘Jello Michelstadter Rathaus’, an important sire in his own right.

Kantu v. Arminius, the son of the other very important Kantu v. Winnerau, was Sieger in 1978 when the “Sieger” moniker was reintroduced after it had been off since 1973.

Cantu was an exceptionally good drive. When I saw him at the Sieger Show for the first time, I was amazed at the fluidity and easy nature of his gait. Although he fathered better daughters than sons, he produced a very good animal in Sonny v. Badener Land, which in turn produced Reserve Sieger to Uran – Tell v. Grossen sand.

His litter sister Tina was Siegerin.

Till produced the Sieger double “Fanto v. Hirschel” – 1990 and 1991 and also his littermate, “Frei v. Hirschel”, who was also an important parent in his own right, produced a very strong temperament.

He is considered the son of “Frei v. Hirschel”, Amigo v. Rated by the knowledgeable judges an ideal source of excellent temperaments, Belgier is the sire of a number of very fine dogs that have done well at Sieger Shows, including the VA’s prestigious Italian pet “Quartz v. Templari”.

The brother of the litter Canto Arminius, Caesar against Arminius, was also one of the important sons of Canto against Winyirau. Having a stronger temper than his littermate, he was the father of Dingo v. Haus Gero, Sieger in 1982.

Dingo was an exceptionally good mover with an amazing gait. Although widely used at first, and the sire of 4 Virginians, Dingo later fell out of favor with German breeders as it was felt that he produced so many animals that hip was suspect.

Argos against my word.

Argus is appointed by Canto of Zilly v. Klammle, which was later exported to America where it became champion. Argus was known as a dog with an excellent personality.

The bitch he imported, Fara against Bad Bull in Puppies to the only Lasso di Val, was the daughter of Argos. She also inherited the same strong and confident temperament as her father.

Argus’ influence continued chiefly though his excellent son Argus v. Aducht who is represented in the animals sired by Manto Overdinger Land and Miro Holtkamper See.

Kantu’s influence against Winyirao in spite of his sons and daughters evidently made an indelible impression on the dynasty. It can really be considered the three corners of a modern German Shepherd.
