History of Franckenhorst kennel


article by Barbara Bordas Edina (kennel di Satti, Hungary)


To get to know the Dobermann of today, we need to study its history. In this history, the kennel of Sonja David von Franquemont Freudenberg played a significant role: it gave the breed a great number of excellent specimens, without whom the breed wouldn't have developed to the current level. The von Franckenhorst kennel was founded by an Indonesian woman, Sonja David von Franquemont Freudenberg. Her first Dobermann didn't meet her requirements, therefore she was regularly attending the great European shows and got acquainted with an acknowledged German breeder, owner of the v. Eichenhain kennel, and bought a male from him: Ero v. Eichenhain, son of Andy v. Eichenhain and Wilma v. Fürstenfeld.

The next purchase was a female, Amarilda v. Wachenburg, puppy of Ero. In 1971, the first litter, a combination of Amarilda and Chico v. Forell, came into the world.



"A" LITTER, 1971 (Chico v. Forell x Amarilda v. Wachenburg): Angola, Alva
It received great recognition immediately, as the litter included world winner Alva v. Franckenhorst. Alva completed the Korung as well. A remarkable achievement right to the first attempt, as though it were the sign of the miracle to come.

Alva was the sire to the legendary working dog Baron Cesar v. Rensloo, whose puppy Baron Bryan v.Harro's Berg became a world winner. Baron Cesar's sister, Bonita was the mother of world winner Esmir v. Hermansjomaik. Barones Eva's puppy was Ebo v. d. Groote Maat, also a world winner - just like her puppies - and she is a line founder as well.

"B" LITTER, 1972 (Chico v. Forell x Olive of Bamby's Pride): Banglah
In the meantime, Sonja sold Ero to Japan, provided she would get two females back in return. The first result of this deal was Olive of Bamby's Pride, daughter of Odin v. Forell and Rita v. Forell. She can be considered as the base female to this kennel, all the renowned v. Franckenhorst dogs originated from her. Olive has never been really successful at the shows. Her first litter was the second one in the kennel's history. She was mated with Chico v. Forell and then gave birth to Banglah, a young world winner.

"C" LITTER, 1972 (Chico v. Forell x Amarilda v. Wachenburg): Claire,Ceylona, Comtesse Charm
The third litter originated from the approved Chico-Amarilda couple and resulted in a uniquely beautiful dog, this time a female, Comtesse Charmaine, who became a multichampion.

"D" LITTER, 1973 (Bryan v. Forell x Olive of Bamby's Pride): Don Dayan, Della, Dewi
The fourth litter is of historical significance, as it included Don Dayan v. Franckenhorst (the sire to Hertog Alpha v. le Dobry), and also Della and Dewi. Dewi became a multichampion also. The sire was Bryan v. Forell and the dam was Olive. The conception was only possible by means of artificial insemination, as Bryan lived in Sweden, where live animals were quarantined. Della went to Italy and gave birth to Medina dei Piani di Praglia.
