    CH Ajax vd Klausenburg. (Ador-Viktoria x Monika Tipp-Topp) Harl, blue carrier. Ajax was imported to the US around 1930 by John P. Wagner who later had the famous Mazelaine boxers. Sire in USA of Hendrick's Cuno (H) leading to Mountdania Harls.

    BISS CH Herold von St. Magn Obertraubling, harl, born 1957. Imported to the US where his name appears frequently in pedigrees of harls & blacks. Included quite a few champions, but perhaps his most notable breeding was to CH Brandy's Charm of Lidgerwood, which produced Dinro's Ben Shalom (sire CH Dinro's Neshobe Chief) and CH Dinro’s Unlimited Charm (who was Dinro’s top producing harl female).

    Jagla vd Stadt-Hamburg, harl, born 1958. 1959 Bundesieger. Purchased by Laura O’Day for her friend Rafael Guirola, of Alanos D’Oro kennels. Progenitor of CH Kant von Emmenhof (who was imported from Germany by Eva Robinson of Riverwood Kennels and produced abundantly there).

    CH Ador Tipp-Top (harl, blue carrier) (CH Prinz Fuchs x Freya Tipp-Topp) Sire of Ador Viktoria. Born 1921. Breeder: Andreas Brunner, Munchen. Mounted and put in the Andy Warhol museum. Ador Tipp Topp was a blue-ribbon winner at Westminster. After the Great Dane died, he was stuffed by a taxidermist at Yale, and eventually sold to a drama student for $10.

    CH Jagla Moguntia, harl, blue & fawn/brindle carrier, born 1927. The famous CH Dolf vd Saalburg (brindle) was bred to harl female “Ute Orplid” - from this mating came Jagla Moguntia – harl dog. Jagla was judged the best Great Dane at the Seiger show in 1932 but the award was withheld because of the mixed color breeding. There is a parallel male harl – Bsg Kalif von der Rotburg. Kalif is also the product of a mixed color mating fawn x harlequin – however the Seiger title was not kept from Kalif.

    Ador Viktoria, not a harl Dane, but a Black and Blue dane influenced by the "s gene" - in other words, a mantle. His color was white, black and blue. Both his parents and ALL FOUR of his grandparents were blue carrier Harls. Ador Viktoria was born 1922 in Germany, and sold to Send Kennels in England. He was a VERY popular stud.

    CH Ador v Amalienborg's half brother (having same father "Roland v Riesenfeld") was CH Harras Sauer 7526 (who should not be confused with the first Harras Sauer 3667, a harl son of Prinz vd Paulsburg 3615, though BOTH Harras Sauer's had the same dam - CH Hero Sperberg 3650).

    CH Prinz Fuchs, harl, blue carrier. Born 1916. There are twenty-one litters sired by him on record, all whelped between 1920 and 1922! He was used by some of the top harl breeders of the day – four times by his owner Andreas Brunner’s Tipp Topp kennels in Munich and twice by Joseph Stehberger’s v Obertraubling kennels. Fritz Mezger, also of Munich, was the first to use him, twice in 1920 for his v Riesenfeld line. He's a perfect example of how the "s gene" creates "clean" harls.

    CH Ador-Colonia. Fawn. Born 1903. Bred extensively and had unbelievable number of kids and grandkids. Was bred to Schmunzel v Merscheid, unregistered, and produced the great CH Zeus v Ohligs-Mercheid.

    CH Zarina of Sudbury. Ador-Viktoria was bred to Zora of Sudbury and sired Eng. CH Zarina of Sudbury (harl, shown below) in England. (Ador-Viktoria went to the huge Send Kennels of England and was called Ador Viktoria of Send. "Huge" is an understatement, I've seen a picture of their 100+ danes posed in a photo.)

    CH Wodka vd Stadt-Hamburg, harl, born 1952. Paternal grandparents were a fawn and a harl. Used for breeding by the famous Carl Daniels (the DDC Studbook Chairman) and Willi Glittenberg (an official on the Judges committee). Sired 3 out-freaking-standing harl males - CH I.W. Harper vd Stadt-Hamburg, Jagla vd Stadt-Hamburg and one of Germany's favorite studs Marko vd Kreuzchanze 44107. Those three harls made their mark and influenced the breed in both the United States and Germany.

    CH Dolf St. Magn, harl, born 1928, imported to US. One of the most internationally famous harls of all time. Won German Sieger in 1930, 34 best of breeds in the US including BOB Westminster 1934.

    CH BS 72 Kalif von der Rotburg, harl. Kalif's father Cyrus aus dem Butz, was ALSO a winner of that esteemed Bundessieger title (in 1965), but the surprise is that Cyrus was a FAWN. Kalif had a black brother, Belgian CH Karim von der Rotburg. Kalif was bred to the harl "Fee Imperial" and produced the great "CH Quasi Imperial."
